The Cloud Atlas star reveals her workout secrets.
This time of year, it becomes more difficult to keep those unwanted pounds off with so many holiday goodies around. For inspiration, InStyle magazine asked Halle Berry how the actress and mother stays fit while maintaining such a busy lifestyle.
In the interview, the Cloud Atlas star said she’s not a huge fan of working out but she sticks toa set schedule. “I work with [personal trainer] Nat Bardonnet three times a week, an hour at a time,” said Berry. “I do cardio, very light weights and exercises that use a lot of my own body weight.”
The Oscar-winner says she’s done trying to obtain the ideal body; it’s more about staying healthy. “I just try to keep everything lean and toned—the days of trying to get a body are done. I don’t really like exercising, but I like the people I work out with. I need somebody to show up and plan it. If I don’t have that, I’ll find a million other things to do.”
Berry made headlines in the past for her health troubles—specifically her struggle to keep her diabetes under control. She tells the fashion magazine that she’s a Whole Foods shopper and she pays particular attention to the ingredients in everything. “Products will claim to be good for you, but when you look at the ingredients, they’re loaded with sugar,” said Berry.
