“I know this is Fitness Friday, but let me just tell you that she has been killing it every day,” says Malik as reported by People

He also reveals the routine Berry adhered to in order to achieve her fitness goal. This includes four hours of training a day, intermittent fasting, and keto. 

HER CHALLENGING EXPERIENCE TRAINING FOR ANOTHER FILM

Berry, who was a gymnast as a teenager is used to preparing rigidly for a role. Earlier this year, she learned jiu-jitsu and how to fire a gun for her participation in “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum.”

According to the fit actress, the Keanu Reeves film was her most challenging in terms of pre-production training. 

“I knew how hard it was. Just being in it was life-changing. I don’t think I’ve ever worked harder or longer to prepare for a part in a movie,” she admitted while promoting the film.

WHAT FANS CAN EXPECT FROM HER NEW FILM

In “Bruised,” the Oscar winner plays a disgraced MMA fighter who is faced with the challenge of competing with one of the toughest MMA players. She does this to ultimately regain her son she walked out on years ago. 

According to Deadline, Berry will be working closely with the same team that choreographed fights for the “John Wick” franchise.  There are no known details regarding the film's cast but "John Wick" producer Basil Iwanyk is also on board.
