There was a time when I would only hear my male clients talk about how they wanted fit, chiseled arms. Nowadays, almost all of my female clients are adamant about having strong, sculpted arms, and that's thanks, in part, to the über-fit actresses dominating the movie screens of the '90s and early 2000s.
The incredible arms of Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby, Halle Berry in Catwoman, Demi Moore in G.I. Jane, Resident Evil's Milla Jovovich, and Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider, all inspired women to lose the sleeves and focus on making their arms as amazing as the rest of their bodies.
There are two main muscle groups in the arms: The biceps, which are located on the front of the upper arms; and the triceps, which are on the back of the upper arms. The main function of the biceps is to bend the elbow, while the triceps straighten the arm at the elbow.

Never say never.
Halle Berry is a bride once more.
The expectant Oscar-winner, 46, wed French film star Olivier Martinez, 47, Saturday at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France, her rep officially confirms to PEOPLE.
The ceremony took place in a small chateau, where, in accordance with French law, a civil union was held (at 4 p.m.), followed by a religious ceremony at 5:30 at the chapel in the village.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are about to say "I do!"
The couple, who revealed their engagement in March 2012, are planning to get married this weekend, a source confirms to PEOPLE. They boarded a flight to Paris Tuesday with Berry's daughter, 5-year-old Nahla.
With rumors flying of an impending wedding, whether they remain in Paris or travel further afield – Martinez loves the Mediterranean – remains a mystery. But the pair have had their eye on summer nuptials for some time, several sources say.

With her growing baby bump on full display, Halle Berry stepped out for a midday Mother's Day celebration in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
Wearing flip-flops and a sleek purple halter dress set off by long metallic chain necklaces, Berry, 46, joined daughter Nahla, 5, and fiancé Olivier Martinez, 47, for a casual lunch date at Riva Bella restaurant.
Berry, who confirmed her pregnancy in April, said that Mother's Day is a fun holiday for her because she doesn't have to do the party planning.

Even pregnant with her second child – and with a wedding in the works – Halle Berry has admitted that she has no plans to slow down or take time off from work, which is probably why Sunday's holiday will be particularly gratifying.
"What I love about Mother's Day is Mom doesn't have to plan it," Berry tells reporters before hosting the 20th Annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women.
That means fiancé Olivier Martinez and daughter Nahla Ariela, 5, are in planning mode. And the actress couldn't be any happier about the role reversal.
