Julie Bishop has inspired Baby Boomers across the country, showing off her intense workout regime and commitment to health and fitness.
The 62-year-old has proved age is not a barrier when it comes to exercise as she takes to running and pilates to keep fit.
Sharing a photo on social media, the Federal Member for Curtin wowed followers with her gruelling workouts, leaving many in awe of her dedication to the gym.
“This seemed like a good idea at the time… adding #megaformer #pilates to #running regime,” she wrote on Instagram.
The former deputy Liberal leader received many compliments from followers, who praised her for her commitment to exercise.
“Before you know it you’ll be running ultra marathons if you keep that up,” one person commented.
“Awesome way to strengthen mind and body! Keep inspiring us!” another said.
While a third added: “Great to see a super fit future prime minister”.
Although she no longer holds the position of Minister for Foreign Affairs, Bishop hasn’t stepped down completely from her political career.
While there was much speculation that her time in parliament was over, the 62-year-old confirmed with ABC that she will recontest her Western Australian seat of Curtin at the next federal election.
Bishop cited “overwhelming support” from her electorate for her reason and also said Australia needs stability when it comes to politics.
“I think their interests come first,” Bishop told the ABC. “It’s very much a personal decision for me, but I believe the country needs stability and continuity at present.”
She has spoke out about the chain of events and actions that saw her move to the backbench when former pm Malcolm Turnbull was ousted as leader of the Liberal Party.
“I just felt it was best I not be part of that cabinet,” she told Post Newspapers in Perth on Saturday. “I got caught up in unbelievable conflict between the Left and the Right of my party.”
Bishop had originally denied she would run for the job but, following Turnbull’s announcement that he would not contest a second challenge if a spill motion passed, she opted to stand against Peter Dutton and former Treasurer Scott Morrison. Following her failed bid, Bishop made the decision to give up her ministerial duties.
