Meet Pauline Nordin. She’s 5 feet 2 inches tall, weighs 117 pounds and has a body-fat percentage between 7 and 10 percent. She also sports biceps that measure “12 and a half inches, cold.”
She’s not a Marine, nor does she have military experience. So why is she featured on the cover of this week’s Marine Corps Times?
Her fitness and nutrition lessons have caught the eye of officials at Headquarters Marine Corps, who want to enlist her help in training Marines.
Nordin first hit their radar when a mock recruiting poster went viral bearing her image. The poster read “U.S. Marines. We turn girls into women and women into leathernecks.” It was created by an apparent super fan of Nordin, of which there are many.
Despite her lack of military training, Marine officials say there is clear potential in her teachings.
See this week’s issue for all the details about Nordin’s career, plus diet tips (she eats 7 pounds of veggies a day!), and finally, a workout Nordin says is guaranteed to kick a Marine’s ass.
