Boxing and yoga are her go-to workouts.
All was suddenly right with the world when Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram back in 2019. While she mostly posts behind-the-scenes shots from her filming projects, Friends nostalgia, and random snaps with famous friends, Jennifer slides a little fitness content in the mix here and there.
Case in point: A new Instagram Story that shows the 52-year-old actress trying to squeeze in an at-home workout while her dogs play around her. There’s Jen doing bicycle crunches as her pooches play with a stuffed animal right around her legs (and totally stepping onto her yoga mat), Jen trying to grab a kettlebell from between her dog’s legs, and Jen attempting to do squats while her Lab is parked right in front of her. The whole thing is hilarious and so relatable for pet parents who have ever tried to work out with furry family members around.
Of course, The Morning Show star manages to get plenty of workouts in without being interrupted. Her trainer, Leyon Azubuike, previously told Women’s Health that his famous client works out up to seven days a week for an hour and a half each time. They tend to follow a training cycle, he said, and “depending on where we are in that cycle dictates the duration and intensity of Jen’s workout.”
“If I know Jen isn’t filming anything, it’s a different phase than if I know she has something coming up tomorrow,” he continued. “If she’s going to be walking up to receive an award, I’m not going to destroy her legs in the gym the day before.” Fair, fair.
During those workouts, Jennifer will box, jump rope, do strength training, and resistance band work, 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,” he added.
She’s also big on yoga, and even demonstrated some impressive moves in a December Instagram post:
Jennifer previously talked to InStyle about her love of boxing. “I love it,” she said. “It’s the longest workout I’ve actually stayed with consistently other than yoga. There’s something about the mental aspect of boxing—the drills, your brain has to work, you’re not just sitting on a bike. It’s amazing.”
Jennifer also said that boxing is “a great way to get aggression out. You get a mental release of all this crap you’re taking into your ears and eyes every day and have little fantasy moments imagining who you’re punching.”
