As Rachel Green on Friends, Jennifer Aniston was seen working out exactly once in 10 years: When she went running (with her hair down!) alongside an eager Phoebe. But IRL, the 48-year-old actress is famously all about the sweat life.

The longtime yoga lover tells Vogue she likes to “go in and out” of certain exercises to keep her body confused.

“I raise the incline, run for 2 minutes, walk for 1, run for 2—and I do it for 20 minutes straight until I’m just drenched.”
