There are so many times Halle Berry has proven that she’s not like the rest of us, like when she shared a badass pic on Instagram of herself doing a handstand or how she managed to turn a pillow into a fashion statement. But Halle just outdid herself with a new Insta post to celebrate her 54th birthday.

In it, Halle is riding on a skateboard in a white tee and bikini bottoms. She’s barefoot, her hair is perfectly tousled, and her legs and butt look super toned. “54….life just gets better and better! 🌈✨,” she wrote in the caption.

Famous friends flooded her comments with birthday wishes. “You better skate on into your destiny!” wrote Octavia Spencer. “Happy happy birthday. ❤️,” said Julianne Moore. “Yasssssss! 👑 ❤️,” chimed in celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins.

And, of course, plenty of people noticed that Halle looks like that at 54. “Fountain of youth,” one wrote. “ #54 looks good on you 🔥🔥🔥🔥,” another said.

Halle has made it pretty clear that she works hard to look so fit. In an essay she wrote for Women’s Health in May, Halle said that she likes to focus on all-over fitness, and that her average workout “doesn’t involve a single sit up or crunch.” Instead, the workouts she does with her trainer Peter Lee Thomas are “all about full-body movements—like squats—so I’m hitting all of my muscles at once, abs included.” As a result, she said, “my core is just as toned and strong as ever.”

Of course, Halle works more than her core. Thomas told People he likes to have Halle do a combo of exercise techniques that include martial arts, boxing, and yoga. And, he said, Halle goes hard at the gym. “I had no idea what her age was when I met her,” he said. “I never looked or was interested in that, and when I found out, I was absolutely shell-shocked because she has the discipline and athleticism of a 25-year old.”
