Michelle Yeoh, 61, on the importance of working out every day

Michelle Yeoh just keeps getting better with age. After several decades in Hollywood, the 61-year-old has showcased her acting skills and she’s also built a reputation as a master of martial arts.

Yeoh showed off those skills while starring in the 2022 hit “Everything Everywhere All at Once” and even won an Oscar for her performance. But her performance in the film almost didn’t happen.

In 2023, Yeoh told the Los Angeles Times she felt pressure to retire before she earned the role. Thankfully, her decades of martial arts experience proved to be a huge asset for the film.

“Michelle’s age and background in martial arts were not hindrances but rather assets to our work together,” D.Y. Sao, actor and martial artist, who worked with Yeoh in the movie, told GQ. “Michelle has more energy and stamina than people half her age, and I have worked with martial artists for three decades.”

Yeoh stays mentally and physically fit using a variety of methods, and she’s spoken at length about several of them. Eager to learn her secrets? Ahead, discover everything she’s shared.

She never lost her love for sport

As a child, Yeoh ran, swam and did springboard diving, she told Olympics.com in 2023. “I actually was the junior champion of Malaysia in squash. So I was exposed to all forms of sports. I learnt at a very young age what it means to be sporting because it teaches you discipline and good behavior.”

She also pursued ballet in her youth, calling dance her “first love” in a January 2024 interview with the Washington Post.

“As a little child, that was all I wanted to do was dance, whether it was ballet, but just in the world of dance, and that was what I went on to pursue in England as well,” she said.

Yeoh suffered a back injury at the Royal Academy of Dance in London, per Time, forcing her to pivot career directions, but she still benefited from her time as a dancer.

“Having that kind of discipline, that kind of training, I think, stays with you for the rest of your life. So you understand your core. You understand there are certain positions that you should hold your body into and ensure that you have physically a stronger body and also a presentation,” she told the Washington Post.

She has great respect for her body

Yeoh has a methodical routine and starts each day by expressing gratitude for everything her body does.

“Before I even get out of bed, I start meditating and I do my mantra,” she told the Los Angeles Times in 2022. “I wake my body up slowly. I’ve had injuries over the years, so I have to rectify them.”

Yeoh then explained that her morning routine “starts from within.”

“I tell my body, ‘I’m sorry. Forgive me of all the things I’ve done to you. And thank you,’” she said.

She loves the physical and mental benefits of martial arts

When her dreams of dancing professionally fell through, Yeoh fell in love with martial arts.

“Ballet was where I first learned how to move with strength and intention … Dance and martial arts have a lot in common. They’re both about fluid and powerful movement. When working on action movies, I really delve into my dance knowledge of choreography, coordination and flexibility to guide my martial arts and help me perform high intensity scenes with grace and elegance,” she told the Financial Times.

Yeoh told the publication that the benefits of martial arts “extend beyond physical fitness,” adding that the practice “improves mental stamina and confidence” in addition to strength and flexibility.

Yeoh has been practicing martial arts for so long now that the movements are like second nature. And she keeps up with her training so she’s prepared when job opportunities come along, like her starring role in “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”

“You know when you know your ABCs? You are going to be able to string your words and things like that if you keep practicing and if you keep using your skills, right? I practice every day,” Yeoh told the Los Angeles Times. “My flexibility is there. My stamina is there.”

Because of that, the star told Variety physical fighting is “relatively easy because I’ve been doing it for so many years.”

She’s never been afraid to do her own stunts in films

Yeoh has been determined to do her own stunts.

“I went into training, like with the stunt boys and all that, and I think they were very curious to see this young girl who wanted to play in the sandbox. And I was very fortunate, they were very agreeable to it. I had some of the best instructors who taught me how to protect myself. [I] did learn that they took the blows,” she told NPR in 2022.

“All the top action stars, they did not get it handed to them on a silver platter. And so I remember thinking, if I want to join this boy’s club, you better be able to take the blows as well. I had to persuade them. I had to demonstrate to them that I deserved to be there,” she continued.

She takes better care of herself now than she did in her 20s

The 61-year-old doesn’t let her age stop her.

“You know, you get to be my age, and you can see it literally slipping through your fingers, because you are no longer that prime age. The worst is when people think, ‘Oh, she doesn’t look like she did in her 20s, so she can’t physically do the same things,’” she told the Los Angeles Times.

“What they don’t understand is that I’ve learned some things over the years, and I’m more clever and smarter in how I can sustain my stamina. I’m as fit as I was before, because I know how to look after myself much better than when I was younger.”

She exercises while doing her skin care routine

Yeoh is passionate about skin care and she told Vogue that she likes to sneak in some exercises while she’s completing her daily skin care routine.

“Normally when I’m doing all this, I’m doing my squats,” she told the publication. “Remember, you can do your kicks, you can do your stretches, while you are also waking up.”

She gets some sort of physical movement in every day

Little bouts of physical activity add up, and Yeoh told Variety that she makes it a priority to move her body each day.

“I exercise every day. I do my whole routine of being in shape and knowing my moves. When you are in shape and ready to strike, it’s not difficult,” she said while explaining her process for an onscreen fight scene.

Yeoh has said exercise is something she has to do each day, like brushing her teeth.

“It’s a daily ritual I would not miss. Even if we have early call times on set, I will still commit to waking up earlier, to activate my mind and body,” she told the Financial Times in 2024.

She’s a big fan of walking

Yeoh said she loves walking in a 2022 interview with Vogue.

“For me exercising is the most important and when I’m here in New York, I love walking around Central Park—I mean literally the whole circle around the park, which is what I did yesterday and what I did this morning,” she said, adding that walking helps her skin.

“I get this glow after I exercise that comes right from your core,” she said. “Your skin looks better right away. That’s my meditation as well, to be able to focus.”

She cites hiking and elliptical machines as two of her go-to workouts

Whenever she can, Yeoh likes to work out in the great outdoors and go on a hike. She told the Los Angeles Times that Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles is one of her favorite spots.

When she’s not exercising outdoors, you’ll find Yeoh on an elliptical machine.

“You have to get past the first five minutes, and then the adrenaline kicks in and you get into a groove,” she said.

She finds joy in food

Yeoh may be in shape, but she’s all about balance and loves to eat. While chatting with TODAY.com in 2024, the star said she’s a big foodie and described the importance of food in Asian culture.

“It’s very interesting how Asian moms show love to their kids, by giving the best food, always feeding them … the best part of the chicken would go to their kids,” she said.
