Gabrielle Union gives exercise tips
Gabrielle Union loves promoting her healthy lifestyle and motivating those around her. The actress revealed that she needs to work out to maintain her results. She said, “At my age, if I don’t work out for two weeks, it’s like I’ve never done anything, ever.”
Gabrielle was blessed with fabulous arms, and she said that those are the parts of her body that bounce back the easiest. She explained, “I love my arms because it’s where I get fast results… But my arms come back quickly. I try to maintain my moneymakers.”
Gabrielle said that it is in her best interest and the best interest of those around her, that she work out in the morning. She explained, “I’m not a morning person, but I have to work out early because of my schedule. The great thing about Pilates is that I can take out my annoyance from waking up early on the machines instead of human beings. It’s for the greater good. My body responds to it, and I’m also more clear.”
We can’t wait to see what Gabrielle will wear at the Met Gala next week.
