Jennifer Aniston Talks Workouts, Motivation & Skin-Care

Jennifer Aniston is a celebrity who manages to look better with age. In an exclusive interview with Women’s Health, Aniston gives insight on some of her fitness and beauty routines.

What are your favorite workouts?
Oh my god, I have a lot of favorite workouts. I love cycling, I love yoga of course, and I recently started doing barre method—which is painful and hard. Variety is the key for me.

What happens when you find yourself doing the same workout over and over—why doesn’t that work for you?
Because you eventually stop doing it, and you just get lazy. Mixing it up is always fun because that way you know you’re excited, and it’s muscle confusion. It keeps your body awake.

Have you ever tried any workouts that you just hate and you would never do again?
Umm, boot camp? (Laughs)

What was so tortuous about that for you?
I don’t know, it just seems like I’m not a soldier. I’m not into boot camp, I don’t need to do all of this—I just want to stay fit! (Laughs) I don’t want to get yelled at—at all. Please stop yelling at me.

How do you stay motivated to work out when you’re just not in the mood?
You know what, there are days I go “I can’t” and “I don’t want to,” and I think you just have to listen to your body. So sometimes you just don’t work out. And then there are times when you go, “Really? Do you really not want to?” And then if you just say, “OK, I’m going to get on some machine for 10 minutes,” you just start to get the endorphins going. Then you feel great, and you just keep going. So sometimes you can actually override the “I don’t want to work out.”

But for the last year and a half, I went from being a crazy workout girl to sort of saying, “My body wants a little bit of a break.” So I kind of stay with more simple stuff and taking walks and not being neurotic about working out and eating right. I started to enjoy life a little bit more. The only downside to that is there’s that couple extra pounds and about 4,000 pregnancy rumors, but you know, other than that, it feels great.

Changing gears a bit, what would you say are your top three beauty tips?
I would say do a scrub three times a week to really get your skin clean. Hydrate—obviously drink, drink, drink lots of water. And moisturize. And I’m going to throw a fourth one in and say sleep.
