This Is What Jennifer Aniston Does At The Gym

"Friends" may have ended its original run in 2004, but Jennifer Aniston has certainly not been resting on her laurels. The Emmy Award-winning actress and producer, who portrayed the spoiled, but endearingly spunky Rachel Green on the iconic sitcom, has not only been keeping busy with her TV and film career, she's also been busy keeping fit. Really fit.

Aniston has been committed to working out for years — and it shows. The secret seems to be that the 52-year old combines the right balance of exercise, self-care, and nutrition. And, while Aniston switches things up from time to time, she also always works towards maintaining consistency.

When it comes to exercise, Aniston has a varied routine that she often spreads out across a full week, and up to an hour and a half each day. "We box, we jump rope, we do strength training, we do a lot of work with resistance bands — we're big on resistance bands," her trainer Leyon Azubuike said. "We rotate these things so it's always hard, she's consistently being challenged — I'm a big fan of switching things up, so the body reacts in a positive way and changes." (via Marie Claire).

How else does Jennifer Aniston stay fit?

According to Women's Health, Aniston always starts her routine with stretching and gentle movements so her body is ready for the intensity of her workouts. A regular yoga practitioner, Aniston will also typically incorporate a series of planks into her fitness routine that engage her core and her entire body.

Aniston's trainer will also switch up her workouts. This gives the body the opportunity to learn to react and change in a positive way. He also challenges her with new exercises and equipment that she may not be initially enthusiastic about.

Aniston also makes sure she stays well-hydrated, though she cautions against chugging a lot of water before and after a workout to avoid feeling full and sluggish. To avoid the need to chug, her trainer strongly recommends drinking water before you begin to feel thirsty. Staying hydrated all day is important from a health standpoint as it will ultimately support your energy.

As far as what she includes in her diet, Aniston has her favorite go-to smoothies, loves to snack on frozen grapes, and sticks to foods with healthy fats like avocados and salmon.

While Aniston's dedication to her health and fitness is impressive, you don't need to be a celebrity to look like one. Just implement some of Aniston's practical fitness and diet approaches, adapt them to your needs, and then, most importantly, stay consistent, to look and feel like a superstar.
