Iris Davis was born in Ireland 7 decades ago to a poor family. She has endured death, abuse, depression and struggle most of her life, but has overcome all odds with resilience and strength winning first place at NPC bodybuilding shows in the past 20 years. Some of her most notable accomplishments include an unofficial leg press record at 420kg (926lbs) and the title of fittest female in the US in 2006.
Iris did her first bodybuilding show when she was 50, going up against younger male bodybuilders and coming in second. She is also a world record holder of 21 pull ups. I love this quote I found. She said, “Its so easy to be fit at 25,+ but to remain fit and healthy for 52 years, that is some achievement indeed”.
Iris is currently a personal trainer, in a gym she opened when she was 75 and has over 45 years of experience. And her videos have produced over 10 million views. How many trainers can say that?!
