Ever since the Y2K era of Halle Berry, in the days since ‘X-Men’, ‘Swordfish’, ‘Die Another Day’, ‘Gothika’, and ‘Catwoman’, the actress has been giving us holistic ‘Spartan Woman’ vibes. During the current COVID-19 situation, she has pushed it to another level and is leaving fans swooning for more as she posts photo after photo of her amazingly disciplined lifestyle and open-mindedness.
‘It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see,’ is Halle Berry’s current Instagram quote by Henry David Thoreau and it fits perfectly with the lifestyle she’s trying to share.
It may be time to make Halle Berry your fitness guru because she actually seems to keep fit in ways that she enjoys. Currently, you see her doing kickboxing, dynamic stretching, and generally putting in work with her trainer Peter Lee Thomas.
Though Berry and Thomas seem to be closely intimate, the actress has confirmed that they are not dating but deeply connected as platonic life partners. Thomas, who is a trainer, martial artist, and actor himself, has a very significant following of his own but is seen with Berry almost every #FitnessFriday.
Halle Berry and Peter Lee Thomas have continuously praised each other on social media. In one particular situation, Berry addressed a fan who thought they were dating. “You know, it’s funny. I have had said sooo many times that we are not dating. It’s frustrating that two people can’t be spirit animal friends. I don’t have to date every man I have a relationship with,” she explains to the fan.
The actress also adds, ” Please know I love you all, but please let this go and see our friendship and union for what it is. It’s a fitness journey that inspires us both!”
Aside from Peter Lee Thomas, Berry also shows off other ‘Spirit Animal’ friends throughout her fitness journey. She often posts photos of herself with her girls in ‘the octagon’ and UFC News reports that she is ‘a true fight fan’.
In an interview with the MMA organization, she reveals that when she was a girl she didn’t have a father in the house while growing up so watching fighters like Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier were her only “images of strong black [men].”
Whether you are into wellness, personal training, self-development, or Halle Berry in general, you can find some of everything on her Instagram feed. Her stories include one on one interviews, product suggestions, and instructional videos. The segment that she shares with Peter Lee Thomas, cleverly named ‘Phit Talks’, gives you tidbits of information on supplementation, CBD, and more.
Berry practices what she preaches and that’s the best part of watching her journey. She is consistent, dedicated, and learning along the way.
