She Doesn't Let Her Age Define Her
While Berry might look ageless, she says to WhoWhatWear.com that her age does not matter or define her. She also encourages other women to adapt this approach, especially because men don't let their ages define them. "Age is just a number, and I have never felt defined by it," Berry says. "It is a bit frustrating that people want to place so much emphasis on the age of women. Somehow, it feels a bit degrading, like it puts us at a disadvantage. Men get older, and they get sexier, but women just get old. I think that the older we get, the better we become. We just have to convince ourselves of that fact because I absolutely believe it to be true!"
This is Why She is Committed to Wellness
"Being diagnosed with diabetes when I was 19—that was an aha moment that just changed my whole life," said Berry to BAZAAR.com. "When I realized that I had a disease that I could actually manage by my diet and exercise, and live longer and stay healthier? That's when I got really committed to making fitness and exercise and diet a real part of my life."
She Loves Martial Arts
For her Netflix movie Bruised, which she also directed, Berry told POPSUGAR that she did six different styles of martial arts, as well; as her usual yoga and Pilates ". . all of these disciplines I had to learn elements of in order to present myself, and to have one believe that I really was this world class fighter that had been doing it probably for most of my life. So I pushed myself harder than I think I've ever pushed myself. I know I trained more hours, probably six days a week, about four, five hours a day, for at least a good year in my life."
She Believes in the Power of Fitness at Home
Berry founded the wellness site Rē•spin. "During this pandemic over at Rē•spin and also with my trainer, Peter Lee Thomas, with our Fitness Fridays [on Instagram], we've been really trying to inspire people to work out at home," Berry told BAZAAR.com. "We've been telling them that you don't have to have a big membership to stay healthy, and stay well, and stay fit and strong."
She is Trying to Dioversify the Wellness Space
"I don't know if we've always been provided ways that we can stay fit and be well within a means that's affordable. I think for so long people thought, 'You have to have a trainer. You have to have a gym membership. You have to have all this equipment. You have to eat certain meals. That costs a certain amount,'" said Berry to Harper's. "I think we've talked ourselves out of being fit, sometimes, because we think it's something that's unobtainable or not affordable. I do like FitOn for that reason, because we are learning that it is affordable, it is manageable, and anybody can do it. You just have to have the will and the desire. And you have to make up your mind that it's important. That's the hard work that people have to do."
