On the topic of healthy living (and perfect motivation given our current LBS Beauty Detox), tennis star and sports mogul Serena Williams covers the July issue of Essence Magazine. The July issue is Essence’s Body Issue themed around loving your shape and Miss Serena is serving curvy athletic realness!
In the issue, Serena talks with Essence about her fight against a devastating pulmonary embolism over two years ago, and how at 31 she’s in the best shape of her life. About her body and age, she says “I feel lighter, I feel healthier, and even though I’m 31—which really isn’t old, but for an athlete, particularly a tennis player, it’s old—I promise you, my body has never felt better. Considering how much I’ve played and how much I’ve done, I feel fine. I’m strong.”
