Most of us know AJ Johnson from her days busting a move in House Party and playing Jody’s take-no-sh-t mom in Baby Boy, but these days, Johnson, 53, has made a name for herself as a successful wellness and life coach. Her services have even been enlisted by fellow celebrities, including Gabrielle Union, Anne Hathaway and Lindsay Lohan. And not only is being a wellness coach for Johnson about a sound mind, but it’s also about having a strong and healthy body. That’s why she works out extensively. You can even catch her teaching dance classes and lifting weights throughout her Instagram page, and it has clearly paid off. Johnson showed off all her hard work on the cover of BFW magazine (Beauty, Fitness & Wellness), posing nude and without the photoshop and filters that we’ve come to expect when we look at images of famous folks on the covers of publications. She embraced her curves and her blemishes, stating that they’ve all made her the woman she is today:
Johnson also spoke on cultivating her body to be where she wants it to be, not how other people think it should be. So while some have tried to say that she looks “like a man” due to her muscle tone, she is proud to be a fit woman. And most of all, she’s happy–and happy to be healthy.
She better do it! And to know she’s looking this fierce at 53, it’s just the motivation I think we need to keep working on getting right and staying tight. Check out a few more images of the beauty from her BFW photo shoot, showing off all of her hard work, and doing her thing as a wellness coach below:
