Jennifer Garner is jumping on the trampoline – in her workout gear. In a new post, the actress gets her sweat on, using an exercise trampoline. "Something silly, just because," she captioned the clip of herself jumping into funny poses. How does the star approach diet and fitness?Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 


Daily Exercise

To celebrate her 51st birthday Jennifer made an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show spilled her diet and fitness secrets. "What I do in the morning is I work out," Garner said. "You've gotta do hard cardio to get that—to get yourself—I'm sorry, you do," she said. "We need it in our bodies, but we need it in our brains. Your brain needs it!" she exclaimed. "You find something that actually makes you feel joyful while you're doing it or it won't work."


Zoom Workouts


Jennifer is a fan of Zoom workouts. She takes a class at 5:30 am with Beth Nicely, whose method is  a combination of dance cardio, plyometrics, and strength training. "Building your cardiovascular fitness and building your strength—it's not about how you look, it's not about how you fit into clothes, it's about your own strength and pushing yourself further than you think you can go," she explained to Women's Health. "It's hateful, but it's not so hateful that you just think, 'Okay, I never want to do it again.'"




Jennifer is a coffee drinker. "My regular breakfast is coffee and more coffee," she dished to Harper's Bazaar in a "What I Eat in a Day" video. She will usually drink it black but sometimes enjoys an almond milk cappuccino. According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are several benefits of drinking coffee in moderation. "It acts on your brain to improve memory, mood, reaction times, and mental function," they say, citing a study finding that caffeine can improve endurance and performance during exercise. It is also antioxidant-rich, can ward off diabetes, prevent neurologic disease, lower cancer risk, and ward off depression, they point out.


What She Eats in a Day

Jennifer eats her first meal after working out – a whole-fat yogurt with nuts and berries. "There's usually an apple in there somewhere," she adds. She eats a "big, fat salad like Elaine in Seinfeld," she told Women's Health about lunch. The salad consists of arugula, hearty veggies like green beans and broccoli with half a sweet potato, cheese, and chopped nuts, putting "anything" in there. She usually makes "mom food" for her entire family dinner, generally involving a starch and a big salad. For example, a roast chicken, mashed potatoes, twice baked potatoes, rice, or pizza crackers with fresh veggies. While "nobody cares if they're cooked or not," she does often roast them so their family can "nosh 'em on down." 


Very Little Alcohol

Jennifer is making a conscious effort to avoid drinking a glass of wine with dinner. "I think the more that comes out about alcohol, the more I'm just reexamining my own relationship with alcohol," she told Harper's Bazaar "And the older I get, the more I want to protect my brain."
