Jennifer Aniston dreams of weekend treats while exercising

Jennifer Aniston uses her own body weight as part of her exercise regime.

Actress Jennifer Aniston dreams of Mexican food or a nice bowl of pasta when she needs a little motivation while exercising.

The former Friends star has just been named People magazine's Most Beautiful Woman 2016, and the 47-year-old tells the publication it takes a lot of work to look as good as she does - and she can lack the motivation to stay in shape as much as anyone at times.

"Of course I (get bored)," she told the outlet. "It's when I take breaks and then I get back into it, that's when it's hard. But once I'm back into it, I love it and I crave it."

When the star does feel a little flat, she forces herself to get started, and fantasises about what treats she is going to scoff as a reward to herself.

"Just bite the bullet and do it," she said. "Think of a wonderful pasta or Mexican meal that you want to have on the weekend and dangle that in front of you like a little carrot."

Jennifer has always been a big fan of yoga, and tries to attend a spin-yoga class three times a week. These sessions incorporate 25 to 30 minutes of spinning, followed by 30 to 40 minutes of yoga.

On another three days she tackles weight training exercises from home, with one rest day.

Cardio is also part of her routine too.

"I usually do a trifecta," she added. "Fifteen minutes on the bike, 15 on the treadmill running and then 15 on the elliptical. You have to shake it up."

But she's not a gym fiend - Jennifer recently shot down reports suggesting she works out twice daily to maintain her physique.

"Oh, that's not true," she laughed. "Oh my God, no way! About an hour a day. And I usually take Sundays off."
