She is looking absolutely fabulous.

Jennifer Aniston, the beloved star from Friends and a whole roster of hits like The Morning Show and Horrible Bosses, not only dazzles on screen but also rocks her fitness regime. Fresh from a gym session with her buddy—clad in sleek black workout attire and looking absolutely fabulous—she lets us in on how she maintains that enviable physique. Dive in as we uncover five of Jen's top fitness strategies, complete with stunning snapshots that show just how well they work!


She Makes Time For Herself

Aniston shared some of her wellness secrets with Shape Magazine. She says that making time for herself is important to her. "I think it's important. I think you have to have a nice amount of 'me' time-whatever it is. Even back [at the start of my career], I'd come home from work and-as corny as it sounds–I would always sit and watch the sunsets because they're so beautiful and it would just be a nice little time to chill out. Now, the morning is my self-care time because it gears me up for the day ahead. For me, that's meditation, which I do first thing when I wake up before I have my coffee, because if I get out of the room I won't sit back down. So I'll start with that to just kind of calm myself before I head out to exercise."


She Does Interval Training

Aniston shared some of her favorite workouts with Shape. She says that she does a lot of interval training. "I still love yoga and cardio, but these days it's been interval training. I think muscle confusion and switching it up is important. I work out at Rise Nation [a 30-minute total-body climbing workout] and with my trainer [Rise Nation founder] Jason who just has me carrying really heavy ropes around and throwing medicine balls against walls and stuff. I'd never really done anything like that before, but I love it."


She Takes Fitness Classes

Aniston tells Shape that she likes to take fitness class. "I take the class Taryn Toomey's The Class, which I am in love with because it's sort of a fantastic moving meditation. You get your emotions out, you get your psyche cleaned, you get your body sweating-it checks a lot of boxes. So that's one I'm very into right now. You feel the power of the group energy-it's kind of an extraordinary experience. Not to expose too much, but the first time I did it I was in tears!"


She Eats Healthy In The Morning

Aniston shared her typical breakfast with Shape. "I make a quick shake with protein powder, spinach, maca powder, berries, and vitamin C powder I put in there that's pretty good. I'm not a big breakfast person, but I made myself become a breakfast person. I was always one of those people that just didn't eat in the morning but, of course, you're always hearing it's the most important meal of the day so I find that the shake is really good. Sometimes I do a fasted workout and just have a cup of coffee and then go and work out. You actually have more energy than you expect and [burn more calories] because you're dipping into the reserves as opposed to using the food you've just processed and ingested."


She's Living A Healthy Life

Aniston shared some of her secrets for living a healthy life to CR Fashion Book. "I drink a lot of water, move my body daily, try to eat whole, fresh foods, and get as much sleep as I can. That last part is chal- lenging for me, but it's so important. I feel it when I don't get enough rest. In addition to all of that, I try to be really mindful about what I let into my head- space. Our world is really going through some challenges, and I know we all care a lot, but sometimes I think it's imperative that we turn off the noise."
