This one is a great one! Jodi Harrison recently auditioned for Sports Illustrated 2020 Swimsuit issue, coming in at an impressive top 60 out of over 5,000 women most less than half her age! She did it to create a platform for her message in supporting women of all ages stating that they’re never too young nor old to go after their dreams and no one has the right to slap an age label on a woman with an expiration date!
Jodi, at 59, Boutique Fitness Studio Owner and a two-time World Fitness America and World Fitness Universe champion. NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Integrative Nutritional Expert, SCW Certified: Nutrition, Hormones, & Metabolism, Les Mills certified BODYPUMP & CXWORX instructor, TRX certified, Barre Above certified, Pound certified, AFAA Group Fitness Certified Instructor. HOWEVER, she didn’t start competing nor open a business until she was in her 40’s!
Jodi states, “We are living in a perplexing time when age discrimination should be a thing of the past, yet, while no one can legally ask what your age is when applying for a job, women are quietly being sized up and judged which can hurt their means to make a living and they’re loudly being judged on social media.”
She has been interviewed on Good Morning America’s Strahan & Sara, Front page in the New York Post, Inside Edition, People, Maxim, German TV’s RTL Entertainment show, and many more!
She is a motivation like no other!
