Danai Gurira is on the cover of Women’s Health magazine and she is looking SNATCHED! Gurira has had a busy couple of months, starring as General Okoye in Marvel Studios Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, alongside Lupita Nyong’o and Chadwick Boseman. She is also on AMC’s The Walking Dead and is currently working on the adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s award-winning novel Americanah into a TV miniseries.

In addition to all these, Danai is the co-founder of Almasi Arts, a non-profit which supports and facilitates the dramatic arts in Zimbabwe. Gurira tells Women’s Health that the only way she manages to do all these things is by staying fit mentally and physically.

At 40, Danai is in amazing form, She eats healthy and does a series of workouts up to Four times a week with her trainer, AJ Fisher. Danai’s workouts prepare her for her on-camera roles, but she says there’s a real-life empowerment element to them too. “As women, we’re not always encouraged to find the fullest extent of our physical power. There’s something so exciting about tapping into that part of ourselves.” 

She encourages other women to find joy by exploring different activities from lifting weights to boxing, or even things that are a little less intense. “There’s no need to break records tomorrow. It’s just about slowly finding what feels good and what feels rewarding,” she says.

The article will appear in the July/August 2018 issue of Women’s Health available on newsstands from July 26, 2018.
