Teri Hatcher spoke about her intense exercise regimen and encouraged people to be body positive in a lengthy Instagram post Tuesday.
The 55-year-old shared a stunning snap of herself in a brown bikini, insisting in the caption: “Exercise has become a source of well being not a means to look good naked.”
Hatcher, who is a fan of F45 training, said she was posting the picture because this is her “truth,” adding: “Being in this 55 year old body actually feels liberating.”

Exercise has become a source of well being not a means to look good naked. As part of my @f45_training 8 week challenge we had to submit an after photo. So why actually post a pic of myself in a bikini? Well, this is my truth and being in this 55 year old body actually feels liberating. Here’s the thing. I’ve finally figured out how to be comfortable in my own skin. Maybe not every day but a lot of them. Age allows you to be clear on your purpose and cherish who and what you are grateful for. You have enough age to see the miracle of life and enough youth to revel in that knowledge. You can be vulnerable and strong at the same time. You can forgive others and yourself. You are willing to put in the effort to reach a goal…or not. And that’s okay. Mostly, you know to make the most of every moment. For me that is sharing joy & positivity, knowledge I’ve gained through experience both successes and failures, and helping to lift others up. Sharing myself in a bikini (which I may or may not ever wear again) Is me Being open to others, open to life… finding glorious connection and community. No filters, no makeup, no airbrushing, no negativity. Be strong enough to be vulnerable. #teristuesdaytips #birthdayweek #bekind #giveback #enjoy #liveyourbestlife
Her message continued, “Here’s the thing. I’ve finally figured out how to be comfortable in my own skin. Maybe not every day but a lot of them.”
The actress also said she didn’t use any filters, makeup, airbrushing or negativity for the shot.
She encouraged her followers, “Be strong enough to be vulnerable.”
Fitness has been a part of Hatcher’s life for a long time now. She also ran the New York City Marathon last year with her daughter, Emerson Tenney.
