Halle Berry is a true fitness role model. At 55 years old, the actress seems to be getting stronger and fitter with age. And the secret to her strength? It’s in her intense workouts—and a cooling towel.
Berry’s trainer, Peter Lee Thomas recently posted a video to Instagram, showing off the star’s top exercises for all-over strength, and her exercise tool of choice surprised us. The mom of two performed an intense gym sesh using just a cooling towel for equipment.
“This is the perfect at-home, non-weighted, resourceful workout, you’ve been looking for,” Thomas wrote in his caption. “These moves will truly turn up the heat making great use of our cooling towel during and after training.”
You can shop the exact cooling towel Berry uses throughout her workout here for just $8. Though there are also plenty of options available on Amazon, too. It’s designed to keep you cool during workouts and is made with a super absorbent material that will help keep you dry.
“Never underestimate the power of a good cooling towel, especially for us boxers out there,” said Berry in a statement posted on the re-spin site. “This baby is comfy and breathable, adding a breath of fresh air in between reps.”

In the post, Berry and Thomas show off five different workout moves using the towel. They first begin with core-based exercises, including straight arm towel sit-ups and Russian twists. Then they move on to squats, skaters, reverse lunges with knee drives and burpees.
“To get the most out of this workout, it’s key to move with control rather than prioritizing speed,” Thomas said in an interview for Shape. “Slower is usually harder, faster is usually easier, and people do things fast to rush through them so they can just get it done, which can result in injury,” he said.
Plus, this workout can be done anywhere because it’s weights-free. Thomas says the workout was influenced by one of his fitness philosophies: “I just love the idea that you can get a whole lot with very little.”
