A grandmother who swaps clothes with her grandaughter does not date men the same age as her as she is “young at heart.” Lesley Maxwell is 64-year-old celebrity personal trainer who has amazed social media with her amazing physique and often posts her workouts on her Instagram page @lesleymaxwell.fitness.
Lesley loves to show that people can change their lives no matter their age, and hopes to be a fitness inspiration for people in their 50s and 60s.
According to the Mirror, Lesley began her health journey in her late 40s due after separating from her husband and being diagnosed with anxiety.
Lesley said: “After deciding to walk away from my marriage when I was in my late forties, I decided I would do a personal training course. I was inspired by seeing a fitness competition and curious as to how this look was attained.
“So, I started my fitness journey which became a passion of mine.”

She added: “I soon took part in my first bikini competition and won. I’ve been competing ever since and am now fitter and in the best shape of my life in my 60s. Leaving my marriage in my forties was daunting because society thinks after a certain age, a woman’s life is over. However, life is just beginning then.”
Lesley’s passion for fitness has attracted many suitors on social media, who have even gone as far as to purpose to her, despite being half her age.
One man wrote: “I’m 31 years old and willing to marry you” while another user said he was impressed by her “sheer determination to stay as beautiful as you are!”
In an interview with the Scottish Sun, Leslie revealed that she feels “ageless” and has admitted she never dates men her own age.
Lesley said: “I have always been comfortable with my body but probably even more confident now that I’m feeling fitter and stronger. I love to encourage other women to be ageless and confident enough to wear what they want. Age is just a number.
“I’m not sure if it’s just a coincidence but I’ve never dated a man my own age. Maybe because I’m young at heart plus having a fit, strong, and toned body makes anyone feel ageless.”

She added: “Becoming ageless makes dating not so much about matching ages, but more about who we are attracted to and vice versa.”
Leslie’s fit figure also means she is not intimidated by wearing revealing clothes, and even shares outfits with her granddaughter.
In an interview with the Sun, Leslie explained: “I always feel comfortable wearing a crop top to the gym and of course bikinis to the beach. I’ve never heard any negative comments from anyone about that.
Leslie wants to encourage women to be “ageless” and inspire more women to lift weights for both health reasons, as well as to look and feel strong, which she believes has helped how live her amazing lifestyle.
She added: “I often train with my granddaughter and daughter and I think people probably don’t think of us as being related as much as good training buddies. I do however share training outfits with my granddaughter and I don’t think anyone thinks there’s such an age difference between us.”
