The good ole ripe age of 50, about the same time that people start counting down how many more years until they can retire. But Jean Titus is not about to stop crushing it in his life. He is only just beginning. The 50-year-old fitness fanatic is killing it as a fitness consultant and motivational speaker. Despite being 50-years-old, Titus is shredded, so much so that he has the nickname of “Ripped Grandpa.”
Age doesn’t slow down the 50-year-old fitness fanatic from Washington D.C. who hits the gym at least five times a week for an hour-and-a-half each day. He can bench press 400 pounds, deadlift 440 pounds, and squat 460 pounds. The hard work pays off because he has an impressive 48-inch chest and 18-inch biceps. To fuel his workouts he feasts on four to five meals a day and a total of approximately 3,400 calories per day.
“Before I got into fitness, I was a skinny kid,” says Jean. “Looking back, I feel that I wasn’t as strong and that I had not tapped into my true physical potential. Weight-lifting was a part of the strength and conditioning training program for college athletes, of which I was one.” “People are amazed by my physical abilities, due to my age,” Titus says. “On a daily basis, I have several people approach me asking about my workout routine and diet, and complimenting my physique.”
As for some advice on how to get shredded like Ripped Grandpa, Jean says, “I’ve realized over time that your most valuable asset is your physical and mental health, which is why it is so important to be in shape. My advice for anyone looking to get into fitness would be to focus on the daily tasks, fall in love with the process and most importantly, be consistent,” Jean explains. “You are your only competition, make an effort everyday to beat yesterday’s output and with that mindset, in time you will achieve your goals.” Ripped Grandpa has made his own brand with his gym dedication and his stylish fashion sense and has over 137,000 followers on his Instagram.
