The fact that she continues to receive bodybuilding awards at her age, and she celebrated her last birthday by pulling herself 21 times on the horizontal bar, she also considers normal. “If I can, then you can,” she says to everyone she helps in the gym.

Iris Davis now lives in Melbourne, Florida. In the 1960s, in this city a woman was still not allowed to go to the gym – this was inappropriate, and sometimes simply forbidden. Now, according to Iris, she herself is the best proof that times have changed – she is a woman, she is 75 years old, and she teaches other people, including male bodybuilders, how to properly perform certain exercises and workouts.

Iris herself was born in the capital of Ireland. She was one of 14 children in the family, so at 16 she moved to London in search of a better life, and she got married the next year.
