Tracee Ellis Ross is aging like fine wine. Sis is over 40 and giving folks half her age the business in the fresh face, beauty and body departments. But she isn’t the only celebrity woman over the age of 40 whose body is in the best shape of their lives. From Halle Berry to Angela Bassett, fitness is a top priority for these Hollywood A-listers.

Ross, who inspired this list with her toned physique in this black bikini, works out about four times a week.

“I don’t starve myself, but I work my ass off at the gym. I am aware of what I’m eating,” she told Health Magazine. “I moisturize, and I dry brush, and I infrared sauna, and I do acupuncture and I get facials.”

Berry, who is working on a new film title Bruised, has one of the most intense Hollywood workouts.

“I had no idea what her age was when I met her. I never looked or was interested in that and when I found out I was absolutely shellshocked because she has the discipline and athleticism of a 25-year old,” Berry’s trainer Peter Lee Thomas told People.

And when it comes to Gabrielle Union’s youthful appearance, the beloved beauty gave us a glimpse of her at-home workout on Instastories and we’re definitely intimidated.

Also on our list of #bodygoals is comedienne Mo’nique, who danced her way into her plus size hour glass frame. Keep scrolling to see these toned thespians.
