- Gabrielle Union, 46, just posted a picture with her husband, Dwayne Wade, enjoying some time off on vacation in Italy.
- The America’s Got Talent judge has never looked better in a navy and gold bikini.
- Union and Wade hit the gym together regularly for total-body workouts, which include triceps exercises, sled pushes, deadlifts, and stability ball core moves.
Like Jennifer Lopez and Elizabeth Hurley, Gabrielle Union is one of those celebrities who seems to be aging in reverse. The 46-year-old America’s Got Talent judge not only has a glowing complexion (which she credits to plenty of sleep, water, and simple skincare routine), but she hits the gym often to keep her body toned and strong. And yeah, it shows.
Union recently posted an adorable Instagram photo of her next to her husband Dwayne Wade on vacation, and the two have never looked better. Smiling wide on a boat with a beautiful Italian seascape in the background, Union stuns in a knit navy and gold Manie One bikini—and her abs look incredible. Wade also enjoys a swig of wine… and we’re just wondering how we can get an invite?!
Married in 2014, Union and Wade serve up serious fitness inspiration as a couple. Wade is a former professional basketball player, and Union hits the gym because she knows how important it is for her health. “I have a family history of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, and I know that can lead to an early death,” she told Women’s Health in a 2017 interview. “I work out not because I get off on it, but because I want to live!”
The routine included an elliptical warmup, some time on the stair master, and tricep work using cables. Next, she went straight into lower body exercises, with a series of deadlifts and lunges using kettlebells, barbells, and even finished off with sled pushes and a round of planks using a stability ball.
Union emphasizes that her motivations for exercise go way beyond the physical benefits: “There are times I work out for a job or specific athletic goals but usually I work out to maintain my peace,” she wrote in a February Instagram post. “Many times I’ve cried as my fears and anxiety leave my body. For me, I’m always working out my spirit and exercising my soul.”
Judging from her recent vacation with her husband, it looks like Union is taking some well-deserved time off—and her time in the gym is clearly paying off!
