Inspiring Golden Girl Finds Passion For Powerlifting

It’s that time of the week! Here is your Chicken Soup for the Soul Moment from HooplaHa. A few years ago, now 63-year-old Ellen Bittner realized she had to take control of her life and her health. Too embarrassed to enroll in a class, she began one-on-one training with Vadim Vilensky at Vadim Fitness Studios in Scarsdale, NY. When Vadim returned from a power-lifting competition, Ellen wanted to check it out and was surprised to see female competitors. If they could do it, why couldn't she? - "Just let me see what I can accomplish."  Ellen took home a gold medal from her very first competition. Her success and determination has given her new found self confidence. In her own words, "You're never too old to try."  Now, she's open to new experiences and even went skydiving for the first time.
