This Girl Went From Office Frump At 37 To International Fitness Model at 46

Do you ever look at someone amazing and think that you could never look like that, or be that successful? That you could never live ‘the dream’?

If you’ve ever had even a smidgen of self-doubt on whether you have what it takes, then you have to keep reading. ‘Cause if this girl can do it? Then seriously, so can you.

Let me explain –

I just finished one of the most interesting and inspiring chats I’ve ever had. Listening to Belinda Benn explain what she does to stay in shape (and how she went from Adelaide office frump at 37 to Panama beach based international fitness model at 46) seriously made me want to charge out of the house and take on the world. And considering that I’m already well on my way to creating my dream life this year, you gotta realise that this was no small feat of hers.

belinda benn tells all – to you!

Belinda is one truly inspiring lady. And you’ll be happy to know that we didn’t keep the chat private; Belinda was actually kind enough to let me interview her for Body Incredible! Now I’m pretty sure that having seen her before and after shots here you’ll already be dying to listen to her story, but just so you know here’s a brief overview of what we covered.

    • How Belinda went from office frump at 37 (having never exercised in her life!) to being a fitness model living the ‘dream life’ at age 46.
    • What the major turning point was for Belinda in taking control of her body and her life – and her thoughts on how you can do the same
    • How on earth she ended up living in Panama and playing with spear guns!
    • The stand out characteristics that Belinda has noticed in those who follow through and do what it takes to achieve their goals
    • What Belinda would say to you if you feel ready to really give it your all, but at the same time you’re scared or overwhelmed by everything ahead of you
    • Her number one piece of advice for following your dreams and staying motivated

We also talked about what Belinda does to stay in shape – and how she still manages to get away with drinking red wine and eating desserts! I know you’ll want to hear about that 😉

      I know 🙂 I love this sort of thing. I love hearing about anyone who has achieved their dreams, regardless of the type of dream, but I guess I do get particularly excited about amazing body transformations!

  2. Katie says:

    Awesome, thank you so much for sharing this, Kat (and Belinda). Truly motivating.

      Thanks Katie! I have listened to the interview 3 times now myself. I was telling my husband that Belinda has actually inspired me to set some really high personal challenges to do with my own fitness. I’m sure I’m not the only one!

    Wow, gives me hope at 37!

    Kat have you ever heard anything of Anthony Robbins stuff. It has transformed my thinking for 2011 ie, biggest lessons I have learned on change and achievement is that anything that we want to achieve or do must become a ‘must’ rather than a ‘should’ in order for it to become a reality.
