Gabrielle Union, Mary J Blige, and Tracee Ellis Ross are giving off fitness inspiration vibes in the latest picture of all three women flaunting their impressive physiques, but the great bodies don’t come without some extra work.

The “Being Mary Jane” star donned a gray two-piece and face cap as she flexed her biceps, Grammy-winning “Queen of Hip-Hop Soul,” Blige, looked younger than her age in a black Nike ensemble, and Ross, who currently stars on ABC’s “Black-ish,” chose to go with a camouflage green sports bra and matching tights.

The caption on the photo read:

“The aunties are showing OUT today & putting the kids to shame.”

All three famous women have been praised at various times for their incredible physiques, especially considering their ages and busy schedules, but they’ve also explained the efforts and determination that go into producing them.


According to, Blige gets her figure from a mix of healthy eating and constant exercise. The “No More Drama” singer reportedly maintains a minimum carbohydrate level while chipping in meats, cheeses, greens, healthy fats, and protein shakes.

In a 2013 interview with SHAPE magazine, Blige also revealed that her main exercise is Cardio.

“The treadmill is fine but running outdoors gives me the best results. I try to log 6 to 8 miles a week,” she said. “I could be in the worst mood, but when I do my cardio, I feel much, much better.”

Ross, daughter of the legendary Diana Ross, is no different. The actress’s Instagram page bears enough proof of her dedication and commitment to exercising.

Opening up to InStyle last year, Ross said:

“The ‘I woke up like this’ thing? [expletive]! Black-ish is in HD, darling! There’s no Vaseline on the lenses. At 18 I might have woken up like this. At 45 I [expletive] work for it.”

The “Girlfriends” star regularly works up a sweat with her trainer Tracy Anderson and frequently posts videos of the grueling routines on social media.

But even though Ross is an exercise faithful, the actress says she’s learned to let go of unrealistic expectations and love her body without caring what's in vogue.

“One minute we’re supposed to be flat-chested, the next we’re supposed to have big butts. Who the [expletive] can keep up?” she told Glamour Magazine in 2015. “There are things about my body that I don’t love, but I’m not trying to look perfect every day – I’m trying to look like me!”


Union, like Ross and Blige, is also an advocate of working out and can often be seen burning out the calories alone or with her NBA star husband, Dwyane Wade.

Last June, the new mom decided to use her impressive physique for some good, teaming up with a swimsuit retailer to promote body positivity by sharing unretouched photos of herself.

“Swimsuit season can trigger a lot of insecurities… cellulite, ingrown hairs, scars, body diversity, ageism, you name it! But it’s important to always embrace, own, and love every inch of yourself, imperfections and all!” the “Breaking In” star captioned the post.

Union welcomed her first child, Kaavia, last November via surrogate after opening up about her struggles with infertility and revealing she’s had “eight or nine” miscarriages throughout her life.
