Fit over 40
I was trying on bathing suits at Bora Bora a few weeks ago and I overheard Toni talk to the representative from one of the swimsuit lines she carries. She told him that the company needs to make more bathing suits that have larger bottoms. This is because older women are wearing bikinis and most of the bottoms in swimsuits are for teenagers without a butt. She continued to tell him that her clientele, who come in for bathing suits, work out, are in shape and will wear bikinis, so she needs suits that have a little larger bottom to them. Right then, I thought, “Toni is so right.” We have many women over 40 who are healthy, fit, they work out and stay in shape and have great bodies. So why not highlight them and honor them for all their hard work? They really are an inspiration to so many other women the same age as well as the younger girls who may think that once you get older you are destined let yourself go.
So the very next week I came up with the Fit Over 40 contest for local women who’re staying in shape past 40. How fabulous it is to showcase all of our fit women and let them know how great they look, what a wonderful job they are doing taking care of themselves and being an inspiration to so many.
I was so excited to receive so many contestants for our first contest. The ages range from 42-57 years young. How awesome is that? They all are winners to me and I appreciate and thank each and every one of them for entering the contest.
