Berry's trainer says the actress is in the best shape of her life.

Halle Berry has been trying to keep her fans motivated and inspired to get and stay healthy by sharing her own fitness tips under the Instagram hashtag “FitnessFriday.” Berry kicked off her #FitnessFriday posts back in January, which usually include brief explanations of her workout routines and their benefits, as well as tips from her trainer Peter Lee Thomas, who Berry calls her “secret weapon,” according to People.

Thomas says Berry is in the best shape of her life and trains like a woman half her age.

“I had no idea what her age was when I met her. I never looked or was interested in that and when I found out I was absolutely shellshocked because she has the discipline and athleticism of a 25-year old,” he told the magazine.

In her most recent fitness post, the 51-year-old actress talked about how she maintains her amazing physique by incorporating lunch-hour workouts into her busy day and how her followers can too.

“Yay…it’s #FitnessFriday! Today we are doing the 10×10 Lunch Crunch! I know many of you may feel like you don’t have enough time to work out…well Peter and I have the answer for you. This is a 10 minute #workout that you can do anywhere, from your office to any small space you might find yourself in,” Berry begins the caption for the Instagram post.

Yay…it’s #FitnessFriday! Today we are doing the 10×10 Lunch Crunch! I know many of you may feel like you don’t have enough time to work out…well Peter and I have the answer for you. This is a 10 minute #workout that you can do anywhere, from your office to any small space you might find yourself in. Here’s how it works: You set a timer for 10 minutes and you do 10 exercises for 10 reps each. See how many sets of 10 you can do within 10 minutes. I like to do The Lunch Crunch when I’m working and all I have is a 30 minute lunch break so this allows me to still get the job done. You can find these 10 moves in my IG Stories and Fitness icon. Also people are always asking me what kind of snacks I eat, so today on my Stories I’m sharing two of my favorite #keto low-calorie snacks. Enjoy the workout and let me know how many Lunch Crunch sets you can do in 10 minutes. No excuses…we all have 10 minutes! Go get it! ????????♥️ #FitnessFridayHB

She then broke down how it all worked.

“Here’s how it works: You set a timer for 10 minutes and you do 10 exercises for 10 reps each. See how many sets of 10 you can do within 10 minutes.

This #FitnessFriday let’s get fit with resistance BANDS! I really like working with these very inexpensive bands because they require the use of my own body weight. I want to build strength while staying long and lean. I never want to bulk up so I rarely use traditional weights. These bands are so easy to carry that they allow me to exercise wherever I go. I can work out in my trailer while filming, in my office, on vacation in a hotel room, at the beach, in my living room or just about anywhere. Now, if your goal is to build more muscle mass the bands come in different resistant strengths. So you can actually add bulk if you want to still using your own body weight. And yes ladies, we love our guys with a little bulk! Today on my IG Stories and m Fitness Icon, Peter and I share some exercises that can help you stay long and lean like I prefer or bulk up like Peter… all using bands! Enjoy ♥️???????? #FitnessFridayHB

For years, Berry has been following the ketogenic diet, which is a low-carb diet that turns the body into a fat-burning machine. It has many proven to increase weight loss, while improving overall health and performance.

“Being diabetic most of my life, I have always had to take food very seriously. I have been following the keto or ketogenic diet. I hate the word ‘diet’ so while you’ll see the word diet, just know I encourage you to think of it as a lifestyle change NOT A DIET,” Berry told E! News earlier this year.
