This 35-year-old fitness pro intentionally looks double his age

Most people are trying to reverse the ageing process – not dive headfirst into it.

35-year-old Polish fitness star Pawel Ladziak has built up an impressive Instagram following. And surprisingly, it’s not for his ripped body.

Instead, Pawel entertains his 338,000 followers with some clever use of a bottle of white hair dye.

That’s right. He deliberately wants to look twice his age and has found that social media has responded to the images of a white-haired man flexing his muscles in the gym.

Pawel’s followers are constantly astounded by the fitness fanatic, asking how old he is. Some are convinced he is in his sixties and don’t believe that he is really 35.

The personal trainer – who is also known as the Polish Viking – told Polish site Wirtualna Polsa that he first dyed his hair white after he began going grey “years ago.”

Not wanting to down the salt-and-pepper route, Pawel decided to speed up the ageing process and go full on white.

Now, his white hair stands in stark contrast to the younger body that Pawel regularly shows off in his workout selfies.

And while some wives wouldn’t be happy to be seen with a man twice their age, Pawel’s wife Magda is only too happy to let her husband walk on the older side of life.
