Berry captioned the Instagram photo: ‘Happy #FitnessFriday, everyone! There’s no better feeling than setting a goal and smashing it.

‘What is your fitness goal? Set the BAR higher than you think, share your goal in the comments and HOLD yourself to it. The work won’t be easy, but that pay off? Worth every damn second.’
Berry then invited her 5.7M followers to check out her Instagram Story for a glimpse at her routine curated by performance coach Bar Malik.
The Instagram Story includes a showcase of a vitamin D-enriched drink Berry has come to rely on as well as some shots of her killing it on the kettle bells.

Earlier this year it was reported that recent UFC featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega had also been appointed to get Berry whipped into shape for the film.
‘I’ve been teaching since I was 16 years old – jiu-jitsu. I’m 28 now, so that’s not going to be an issue,’ Ortega told TMZ.
‘Of course, because it’s Halle, we’re not going to fight. But the whole thing is, jiu-jitsu is a beautiful art. (It’s one of) those few arts you can go 100 percent and not get hurt.

‘So my main goal is to get her jiu-jitsu looking dope as f*** … We’re going to see some cool-ass things in (the movie). We’re going to drill her hard,’ he continued.
In Bruised, Berry will play a former MMA fighter named Jackie Justice ‘who has failed at the one thing she’s ever been good at – fighting.
‘When 6-year-old Manny, the son she walked out on years ago, returns to her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world, and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves,’ according to a synopsis via Deadline Hollywood.
In addition to an Oscar, Berry boasts two Screen Actors Guild awards, a Golden Globe and an Emmy.
She juggles her workload with parenting 11-year-old daughter Nahla and six-year-old son Maceo.
