A video of 78-year-old Chinese woman Bai Jinqin has gone viral due to her amazing physique and disciplined fitness routine, earning her the title “most beautiful yoga grandma in China.”
Going viral: Bai, who hails from Tianjin municipality in northeastern China, has impressed the mainland public with her determination. In the viral video, Bai can be seen in the gym with gray hair doing exercises that include resistance training and weightlifting.
Bai’s fitness journey: Bai reportedly began her fitness routine at the age of 60 after suffering from diseases like cancer and diabetes. She was motivated to prioritize her health and reassess her lifestyle. Bai noted that she worked too hard in the past and had neglected her physical health. Her job and lifestyle back then consisted of extended periods of sitting and staying awake late at night.
“At the very beginning, my physical ability was poor and I didn’t know anything about workouts. But I strongly believe that what’s most important is to keep trying,” Bai said, according to the South China Morning Post.

Not the first time: The 78-year-old had previously gained attention in 2019 when state-controlled media China Xinhua Sports posted a video of her working out at the gym. Bai's dedication and transformation have since inspired many Chinese citizens who have voiced their desire to become like her.
