Halle Berry Just Gave The Best Fitness Advice: “Decide Today That You Are Worth It”
If there’s anyone to look to for fitness inspiration, it would be Halle Berry. The 51-year-old mother of two has managed to stay in pretty impeccable shape over the years, and she recently offered some great advice to followers on Instagram who had been asking for help on how to get started with their own health and wellness goals.
In a post that showed the star getting into a plank (and with help from her trainer), she told her fans that the best way to get started on their fitness journey is to make your well-being a priority and get to work.
“You asked how to get started? It’s simple… you just decide to start! You decide today that you are worth it!” she said. “Trust me, I know it’s hard to focus up and dedicate time to working out each day, but with 24 hours in a day you can surely take ONE and dedicate it to YOU! You don’t need a fancy gym to get started – all you need is a living room, a patio, a kitchen floor, a driveway or a backyard, and a water bottle.”
It’s #FitnessFriday. You asked how to get started? It’s simple… you just decide to start! You decide today that you are worth it! Trust me, I know it’s hard to focus up and dedicate time to working out each day, but with 24 hours in a day you can surely take ONE and dedicate it to YOU! You don’t need a fancy gym to get started – all you need is a living room, a patio, a kitchen floor, a driveway or a backyard, and a water bottle. This simple exercise is called a plank pull. This starts to strengthen your core, and a strong core has been key to my workouts. Each week until the launch of hallewood I’m going to pick a question that you ask and Peter and I will do our best to answer. First, we were asked: if you have weight to lose, is it better to lose weight before you start working out? Peter says it’s best do them simultaneously. You can start by walking each day or doing jumping jacks for cardio, while using very light weights, or again holding water bottles in each hand if you don’t have weights. And you can also start the plank pulls. Here’s to getting started! 💪🏽 Swipe to see the plank ➡️
Berry has talked about her fitness regimen in the past, saying she pairs bodyweight exercises like that plank pull four to five days a week with a diet that involves zero carbs and sugars. The results, as we can all see, have been pretty fantastic.
“I swear by the ketogenic diet,” Berry said to Mamarazzi last summer. “It’s simple. It’s no sugar, no carbs. And what you force your body to do is instead of burning sugar for fuel, you start burning healthy fats like avocado, coconut oil, eggs. You start eating healthy fats. Butter can be a part of your diet. You just eat protein, nuts, legumes. You start teaching your body. Your body begins to burn fat instead of sugar and when you start burning fat, all the fat starts to melt away.”
We’re sure her fans are looking forward to more great tips on topics like this from the star when her Hallewood site relaunches this year.
