Don’t think that I’m joking if I assure you the woman in the photo above is actually 46-year-old and a mother of two. Jung Da Yeon is known as momjjang ajumma in her native land of South Korea which means “mom with a striking figure”, and it’s easy to see why.

No wonder women, especially housewives, may be curious about the truth of her rejuvenating and would love to follow her example and start working out in an attempt to achieve the same toned physique. But Jung Da Yeon used to look like a normal housewife after going through two pregnancies 2003. At that time she weighed 70 kilograms. However, the idea of doing something about her dissatisfaction with her figure and weight suddenly occured to her one day when she just woke up in the morning.

According to Jung the perfect figure was only a side-effect of her motivation to lose weight to relieve back pain. She began with the program by strict dieting and physical exercise and managed to lose 20 kilograms in just three months. Now the ambitious mother has triggered what came to be known as South Korea’s “momjjang syndrome”. Before she knew it, Jung Da Yeon was making appearances on television, launching weight-loss books and videos, and building her very own fitness empire. The 46-year-old’s fame spread beyond Korea’s borders to Japan, where she launched an exercise-themed video game for the Nintendo Wii and opened an education center to train Figure-robics specialists.
