Fierce over 40

Jessica Coleman takes the bodybuilding world by storm


“I was really excited about making [my] 40s the best years of my life. And I asked myself, what have I always wanted to do that I’ve never done? And you know, the first thing that popped into my head was that you always wanted to compete in a fitness competition.” Bodybuilder Jessica Coleman. Photo: Eze Amos.
