Jennifer Aniston turns 40 on Feb. 11, and she's looking better than ever. Recently Us Weekly deemed hers "maybe the most envied body in Hollywood." Indeed, Jennifer is lean, muscular, and does it all by taking care of herself.
According to the story in the magazine's Jan. 19 issue, Jen owes her sexy and sculpted body to "running and yoga and eating well." While filming Marley & Me, she had constant discipline, running every morning at 6 a.m. and following a regimented meal plan so she never overate.
Aniston used to be a total cardio junkie, but when she tried yoga, she was a quick convert. To find out why she loves it so much read more.
When at home, Jennifer loves working with yoga instructor and friend Mandy Ingber in her home gym. They do a two-hour session every other day, moving through basic poses like Tree and Down Dog. Having a consistent yoga practice has really changed her body, lengthening her limbs, toning her muscles, and improving her posture. She says, "I've maybe grown half an inch from aligning my spine."
It isn't just the physical benefits that keep calling her back to the mat. Jennifer is all about the spiritual side of yoga too, saying, "You feel like you're having a therapy session." After her sweaty yoga workout, Us Weekly says, she finishes with 20 minutes of cardio on the elliptical or treadmill (she runs 5.7 mph at 1.5 incline).
