You don't need permission -Being 60 on TikTok
May 13, 2021
Hosted by Jodi Harrison Bauer
I've been told I couldn't do a lot of things because of my age. This has been going on for almost 20 years. If I listened to everyone's advice, I would just be another 60-year-old woman wearing age-appropriate clothes, engaging in age-appropriate activities (whatever that means!) and following the sheep and the "shoulds" of society. But I haven't and I didn't, and I won't, which is why when my millennial daughters said, "please Mom, DON'T go on TikTok you're too old!!!!!!!!” I did NOT listen ,and had a video go viral getting 2.8 million views! I can't wait to tell you the rest of the story in this episode of how a 60-year-old went viral on a social media platform where 80% of the users are between 16-24.

Jodi Harrison Bauer is a two-time World Bikini Champion, founder and owner of JodiFit boutique fitness studio, host of Fearlessly Authentic podcast and the oldest woman to ever compete for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, making global headlines and the Top 60 finalists in 2019.
Growing up, Jodi was a people pleaser and scared of everything. She graduated with a BA from Simmons College in 1983. Jodi’s life changed forever when, at 42 years old, she built the courage to take control of her own happiness. Since then, Jodi has worked relentlessly to better herself, build her business, nurture her relationships and create the life she knew she always deserved, one with passion and purpose.
In doing so, she hasn’t followed the rules or fit in the box society wanted to put her in. She started competing in fitness shows when she was “too old,” opened a business at 50 and got re-married eight years later. She competed against women more than half her age for a spot in Sports Illustrated Swim to prove age and beauty are not directly correlated.
Today she defines herself as an ageless warrior and an advocate against ageism. In her studio, on her podcast and across her social channels, Jodi focuses on empowering women.
Jodi is the proud mother of two grown daughters and a rescue pup. Outside of JodiFit, you can find her on the beach or dancing like no one’s watching. She lives by the words “Never let fear stop you from being YOU."
