63-Year Old Superfit Hot Gran Spills Beans On How She Stays In Shape To 'Attract 18-Year-Old Suitors'
Leslie Maxwell, 63, from Melbourne Australia who works as a full-time personal trainer is here to give some tough time to young people out there because of her super-fit body.
This gym-obsessed gran, who says she regularly attracts '18-year-old suitors' also shares some of her top tips for staying fit on Christmas and other festivities.
Maxwell has a huge following on her Instagram where she often shares photos and videos of her shredded look and workout routines. The size 8 grandmother works out five times a week and has almost 30 local and national titles under her belt, winning her first show at the age of 49.
Maxwell frequents the gym with her granddaughter, Tia, 29, and people often mistake the duo as sisters.
Thanks to her super-toned body, Maxwell gains male attention quite easily.
Ahead of the festive season, Maxwell is here to share common diet pitfalls and what to avoid if you want to keep trim for 2022.
Her top tips include eating more protein, ditching wine and sugary drinks, and definitely avoiding overeating.
"My tips for eating over the Christmas period would be to eat more turkey rather than cakes," Lesley said.
She added: "I would say go easy on the soft drinks and wine too, as these are 'empty calories' and usually get stored as soft body fat.
"There's no need to eat everything offered to you.
"If you've finished your meal and [are] offered more food, simply wait a minute.
"The feeling of overeating usually goes away."
Giving more tips, she continued: "Another would be to go for a power walk after Christmas dinner.
"Power walking effectively can work every muscle in your legs and glutes, plus great for your core muscles too.
She added: "Take large strides and squeeze your butt at the top of the movement.
"Burn those extra calories away while walking with family or friends.
"Anyone can easily do these diet tips."
"Try to get a proper workout in between festive events too, to offset the additional food and booze."
Lesley, who recently uploaded a 'Grandmother v Granddaughter' fitness video of her and Tia, also recommended training with a family member or friend to keep fit.
She said: "Add a high-intensity workout into your weekly training schedule and make training fun!"
Maxwell began her journey of fitness some 14 years back after using fitness to cope with her divorce.
Now with her tone and super-fit body, the grandmother often gets approached by younger men but believes age is just a number, saying that all her partners have been younger than her – including her ex-husband, who she had a 13-year age gap with.
Maxwell believes biological age and chronological age are two different things, and that you can be as “old or young as you like” depending on how you take care of your body with healthy eating and exercise.
She gets a lot of attention from men at the gym and online but says her looks often intimidate them.
The grandma added: “The guys are from about 18, which is really funny.
