Meanwhile, Gabrielle showed off her toned abs, legs and arms in the outdoor photo. The Bring It On alum, who’s known to get her sweat on daily with husband Dwyane Wade, recently admitted that she took a break from the gym.

“Took almost 2 months off, now to build it back,” she wrote in a since-expired Instagram Story video in March. Now that it’s mid-May, it’s evident that she has “built it back” up.

Gabrielle and Dwyane have been urging their millions of social media followers to stay fit with them during quarantine. Gabrielle, a FitOn app partner, and the NBA legend teamed up with the app, which offers free online workouts.
