56-yr-old woman works out in saree with daughter-in-law. Such an inspiration, says Internet
You are never too late to learn something and you might have heard this phrase a lot of times. Well, it was proved by this woman as well. A video of a woman from Chennai working out at the gym in a saree has gone viral online. That's not all. The woman shared her inspiring story of being fit despite challenges and the clip also showed her working out with her daughter-in-law.
The now-viral video was shared by a page called Humans of Madras on Instagram. The clip featured the story of a 56-year-old woman. She used to have leg and knee pain earlier on and her son researched for a cure to the problem. He asked her to do exercise every day. Well, she hit the gym at 52 and started doing powerlifts, squats, etc. with her daughter-in-law at her son's gym, Madras Barbells. Moreover, she only works out in a saree.
"She's 56. So what? She wears a saree and casually does powerlifting & pushups! Age is just a number - rightly proves one of the powerful, (young by heart), inspiring mothers-in-law. Her dedicated & supportive daughter-in-law works out with her regularly too. Isn't this called growing with each other?" reads the caption of the post.
The video amassed over a million views after being shared online. Netizens were inspired by the woman and praised her in the comments section.
"This is the best inspiration anyone can have and not just inspiring but also breaking every stereotype that is set for women and more specifically about how to never judge a book by its cover," a user wrote.
Another user commented, "This is by far the best story I have heard in a while!"
