ABOUT ERNESTINE SHEPHERD:
Ernestine Shepherd is a fitness guru in her own right whose mantra for
the past 25 years has been Determined, Dedicated, Disciplined To be
fit for life. She believes that it is never too late to become
At the age of 56, she began working out at Coppin State College with
her sister. The story goes that she and her sister were displeased
with how they looked in swim suits and decided to do something about
it. They began to train vigorously but unfortunately, her sister
succumbed to a brain aneurysm. However, Ernestine Shepherd decided to
work even harder and vowed to carry on in her sisters memory.
Now at age 82 Ernestine Shepherd has been married for 62 years and is
the mother of a 60-year-old son, and has a 21-year-old-grandson.
Ernestine Shepherd is truly an inspiration to all who meet her. Her
fashion is above reproach. She is easily recognized by her gray,
pushed-back hair, with a long braid extending down her back, not to
mention her colorful outfits embossed with her mantra, and decorative
high heel tennis shoes.
Two of her favorite songs are, Here I Am Lord, and This Little Light
of Mine. Her little light is her energy and eagerness to take time out
from her busy schedule to hold classes for seniors at her church,
various community organizations, and particularly at the Energy
Wellness and Fitness Center. Her favorite Bible verses are 1
Corinthians, Chapter 13 and the 23rd Psalm. Ernestine Shepherd
strongly believes that it is extremely important that Christians
actively live out their faith. When life is good, human faith is up.
When life is gloomy, human faith disappears. Faith endures all trials
and tribulations, and there is no other choice but to succeed.
Overall, her most inspirational song is One Moment in Time, by Whitney
Houston. To paraphrase the song, Mrs. Shepherd says, Life is a race
against destiny, but we are all given that one moment in time to be
the best that we can be.
