“Happy [Fitness Friday], everyone!” Berry, 53, captioned the image. “There’s no better feeling than setting a goal and smashing it. One of my goals for [Bruised The Movie]? Ripped Abs - and today? I finally got them, and it feels unbelievable!”

“This [Fitness Friday], I encourage you guys to set your bar. What is your fitness goal? Set the BAR higher than you think, share your goal in the comments and HOLD yourself to it,” she continued. “The work won’t be easy, but that pay off? Worth every damn second.”

Berry concluded her post by encouraging her followers to check out her Instagram Story, where she documented her workout, “courtesy of my performance coach [Mubara Malik], aka ‘Bar’ and put that inner-warrior to the test!”

As of this posting, the photo has been liked more than 218,000 times, with thousands of comments pouring in, many sharing their own plans to get in shape.

“Oh wow! You are always so inspiring [Halle Berry],” one fan wrote. “I want me a six pack too! Time to smash some goals!”

“Halle, seriously, you and your abs just motivated the heck out of me,” another commented. “It’s obvious you’re working hard and steady; what an inspiration you are. Thank you!”
