If you’re having trouble keeping up with your 2019 fitness goals, perhaps grabbing some homegirls and hitting the gym together is the perfect way to keep yourself accountable. Just ask Gabrielle Union and her A-list squad!

The actress and new mom, 46, took an early morning workout class with Mary J. Blige and Tracee Ellis Ross. All three ladies looked as snatched as ever as they showed off their post-workout bodies. “STRONGER TOGETHER. You mess with one of us, you gotta problem with all of us,” Union captioned the photo.

“8am reminder of our collective strength and badassery in this dancery called life. I walked in in a funk and walked out floating on the wings of sisterhood. Let us remember to extend that compassion, love and encouragement to all mankind. Love & Light good people. Thank you @therealmaryjblige & @traceeellisross @heartandhustlegym ❤️”

Union has consistently shared her fitness journey with her followers. She often shares snippets of her her workouts which include weight lifting, cardio and plenty of circuit training. She told Health magazine in 2017 that wanting to prevent chronic illness keeps her motivated to stay fit. “I work out because I have a family history of diabetes and heart disease. Knowing what I can do to prevent that has been a huge thing. And then there’s my job. Knowing that there are people who cannot wait to circle your fat and draw an arrow to it keeps me in the gym.”

Tomorrow will be the 1st day of filming for the series finale movie of #BeingMaryJane I wanted to approach this opportunity with fresh eyes and an open heart. I wanted different for Mary Jane and realized I had to make different decisions for myself. In order to give my all to Mary Jane, I had to give my all in my own life. I wanted different, better, more… so I proceeded to do exactly that…different shit for a different outcome and damnit do I feel golden. Gonna enjoy Mary Jane until it’s time for the next. Thanks for joining me on this ride . Love & Light good people 🤗💃🏾💪🏾🙏🏾❤️ cc @keisymyumi (Atlanta) @dzandertraining (Miami) & the champ #VondaWard (Cleveland) thanks guys for preparing my body and challenging me to be better than I was the day before.

Tracee Ellis Ross, an avid gym-goer and pilates enthusiast, shared the same photo, thanking her homegirls for joining the early morning grind. “I was soooo tired and not in the mood to workout this morning, so thank you @gabunion and @therealmaryjblige for the motivation and sister vibes, and @heartandhustlegym for the environment.”

Now it totally makes sense why Mary J. Blige, who claims the ladies were “kicking ass” during their session, has been crushing all those bikini photos lately. We’re not mad at you, girl!
