A couple celebrating their ten-year anniversary have shared their incredible physical transformation from geeky to gorgeous.
Wendy Joseph, 29, and her fiancé Dan Hennessey, 30, who are from New Jersey but now live in San Diego, California, frequently post pictures of their gym-honed bodies on their social media pages.
But 10 years ago, the couple looked virtually unrecognizable – and they have the pictures to prove it.
Posting a current picture side-by-side with one from 2017, Wendy wrote on Instagram: ‘10 year difference! Left 2007, Right 2017. I used to have a perm and wear my hair stuck to my face every day and @shotsofhennessey used to shave once a week’.
Wendy abandoned chemical hair straighteners six years ago and Dan started to embrace the beard trend in 2017.
The couple who got engaged in Paris in September 2016, work together as personal trainers offering coaching and nutritional advice through their company True4You Fitness.
Wendy has a background in public healthcare and holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration.
Dan, a former college basketball player, has worked in the fitness industry for 11 years, gaining a Bachelors in Exercise Science as well as a Nutritional Coaching Certification from Precise Nutrition.
However, unlike a lot of personal trainers, on their website they reveal that they prefer a more flexible, long-term approach to health and fitness, and although both now boast abs and lean bodies, Wendy shared that she hasn’t always been as confident in her appearance.
However, Dan has helped her love and accept her body, no matter what.
She wrote: ‘He has been there for me no matter what. Literally.
‘No matter what. He has cared and cherished me through thick and thin. Literally. I’ve been thick and thin. Mostly thick but I love it so he loves it.’
And Dan is not the only one.
Indeed, thousands of social media users shared their admiration for the couple’s new natural – and seemingly ageless – look, with Wendy’s then-and-now post achieving almost 60,000 likes in just under a week.
Many users also commented on the snaps, waxing lyrical about the duo’s transformation, and praising their youthful looks.
Commenting on the post, Instagram user curlybynaturee wrote: ‘Did you both age in reverse?? What fountain of youth are you drinking from??’
User __rose_child__ joked: ‘Why does it look like he’s dating the mom in the left and the daughter On the right.’
And_mrs_priscilla asked: ‘You wanna tell me how you aged backward? You guys make such a cute couple, had to follow you both.’
Instagrammer kiki_kinzie typed: ‘He looks like a sexy Viking and her like a beautiful Nubian goddess.’
This sentiment was shared by plantpowered_p who commented: ‘Such a beautiful couple. You both exude such love and joy.’
