Aside from the pro-fitness photo, her explanation behind going to the gym without wearing a shirt is simply fantastic. Along the way, she drops some nuggets of knowledge on how we should love and properly take care of our bodies. 

"I woke up feeling beautiful and motivated to love myself and take care of the ONE body that I've been given," says Brooks. "I'm saying everyone live in your confidence. One Life. One Body. Take Care of It."
