Tracee Ellis Ross is aging like fine wine. Sis is over 40 and giving folks half her age the business in the fresh face and body departments. When she flaunted her toned bikini body on the ‘gram, we couldn’t help but marvel at more women over 40 who’s toned physique has us jumping off the couch and hitting squats. From Halle Berry to Gabrielle Union, Angela Bassett, and more, fitness is a top priority for these Hollywood A-listers.

Ross, who inspired this list, 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 shell-shocked 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, she gave us a glimpse of her at-home workout on Instastories, and we’re inspired.

Also on our list of #bodygoals is comedian Mo’nique, who danced her way into her plus-size hourglass frame. Keep scrolling to see these toned divas.
