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

Most people are trying to reverse the aging process, not dive headfirst into it, but most people are not Pawel Ladziak.

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

Instead, Ladziak entertains his 338,000 followers with the clever use of white hair coloring.

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.

Ladziak’s followers are constantly astounded by the fitness fanatic, asking how old he is. Some are convinced that he is in his 60s 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 colored his hair white after he began going gray “years ago.”

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

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

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