The one where Jennifer Aniston's workout HITT the spot.

The Friends alum is often praised for having an incredible figure, but it's no small feat to maintain her toned physique. After all, she recently showed off her intense fitness routine with Pvolve—a low-impact, high-resistance method—that involved using multiple weights, a slanted board, resistant bands and other equipment.

"If you're having one of THOSE Mondays," Jennifer captioned her Feb. 26 Instagram. "I FEEL YOU. Just gotta do it!!"

In the video, the 55-year-old could be seen standing on top of the slanted board while she squatted and then kicked her leg out to the side. She also did mountain climbers and push-ups, before dramatically collapsing to the ground. 

"I'm done," she said in the short clip, as she laid face-down on the floor. "You know those days when you just don't want to do it? You just gotta do it."

Look Back Over Jennifer Aniston's Hair Journey on Friends

Despite the intensity, the Murder Mystery star isn't afraid to break a sweat. In fact, the actress' trainer Dani Coleman revealed Jen loves a challenging work out.

"Jen likes a nice balance of our Sculpt and Burn format, which is using strengthening blocks with cardio bursts in-between," the Pvolve's Director of Training exclusively told E! News in November. "One of the beautiful things about functional fitness is, because it mimics how your body moves in everyday life, your body will feel energized."

And if you're motivated to exercise, but The Morning Show star's routine is too intense for you, Dani offered the best advice.

"It's always about starting small with your goals," the fitness trainer noted. "You know, getting those 10,000 steps in or choosing the stairs over the elevator. It's those small, daily choices that build up to the idea of Jennifer Aniston."

Plus, there are various ways to work on your body.

"Something that I really respect and admire about Jen," Dani continued, "is that she's been practicing self-care and prioritizing her wellness throughout her entire life. Consistency is key. When you look at someone like Jen, it's a whole lifetime practice."

Of course, Jennifer isn't the only celebrity to share her workout secrets. Keep reading to see stars' favorite way to whip themselves into shape.

Kaley Cuoco

Eight months after welcoming her daughter Matilda with Tom Pelphrey, Kaley noted why she loves doing treadmill workouts amid her postpartum fitness journey.

"Putting that incline up is so good for your muscles, and for your circulation," she told Today.com in an interview published Nov. 22. "I'll also walk backward, which is amazing for your butt and legs. It pretty much works everything."

Becky G

After having a transformative year in 2023, Becky revealed how fitness played a major role. "I know at the end of the day who benefits from a healthier me the most—myself," she told E! News. "Eventually, if you dedicate yourself to it, you will have lived your life longer with this habit than you ever did without it. At least, that's the way I like to think about it."

Her go-to workouts? "If it's a home work out, if it's stretch, if it's going outside for a walk—I try to be as consistent as I can be."

Kelly Clarkson

The Grammy winner explained how moving to New York City helped kickstart her health and fitness journey. "Walking in the city is quite the workout," Kelly told People in an interview published Jan. 3. "And I'm really into infrared saunas right now. And I just got a cold plunge because everybody wore me down."

Julianne Hough

 Julianne told E! News the exercise she always blocks out time for when she has a jam-packed schedule.

"I know that I can walk around the hills with my dog," the Dancing With the Stars said. "That's key because I have to get her out, too. But movement in general, whether it's 10 minutes or five minutes of something, I have to move my body."

And when she has more time to break a sweat, she added, "Whether it's a Kinrgy class or doing Pilates or yoga, the fact that we get to combine all of those modalities is my favorite because I love versatility."

Kate Hudson

"I always move, even for a few minutes each day. Sometimes I'll go into a room, turn up the music and just dance. It's a great way to let loose and feel great."

DJ Khaled

The record producer opened up about his love for golfing and how it's helped him slim down.

"I do it every day and I get a chance to sit on the golf cart or walking about to answer an email or a call and handle my business," he told Us Weekly in an interview published Sept. 20. "It's so much [more] pleasurable, meaning [being around] the nature, the sun. It cleanses me."

Lana Condor

"Honestly, my favorite way to break a sweat right now is playing VR. We got a virtual reality headset right as everything was shutting down and it's been AMAZING during quarantine. There are so many games that make you work up a sweat and it's so awesome. I am genuinely so sore after I play."

Padma Lakshmi

"Under normal circumstances it's going to the gym, but right now I'm taking online classes with my Pilates instructor Britni Lariviere. I'm also trying to jump rope—2,000 strokes each day."

JoAnna Garcia Swisher

"Family bike rides are big for us right now and I always try to carve out thirty minutes for pilates with Andrea Rodgers and foam rolling with Lauren Roxburgh."

Janel Parrish

"Running and listening to music. The best outlet I've found these last few months being stuck in the house! I feel so great and pumped up after."

Dascha Polanco

"My favorite way to break a sweat is mix of sex, PRx Performance, hiking, biking."

Brooke Burke

"By connecting with my audience and motivating them through my Brooke Burke Body fitness app! I've been live streaming on the app as well as on my Instagram since the beginning of quarantine in an effort to make fitness fun and innovative. I especially love walking my viewers through total body cardio parties, which is when I crank up the music, let them find their rhythm and let the booty burn. Cardio kicks up your heart rate, so if you're not sweating, you're not working out hard enough!"

Whitney Port

"I have been doing a lot of Sculpt, Cardio Boxing and Yoga Classes on the obé Fitness App and virtual classes with Pilates By Amanda. If I don't have a lot of time, I will do Lauren Gores' express workouts on her Instagram."

Maggie Q

"During lockdown it's yoga under my own direction. I can go onto so many different tangents and by the time I am done it is often two hours."

Merle Dandridge

"My trainer, Amoila Cesar, gets lots of results out of me by appealing to my 'no quit,' competitive side. He yells and I love it. During quarantine, I got my fix by doing his 6 Weeks of THE WORK on Beachbody on Demand. I also love a rigorous barre class and need daily yoga."

Rachel Naomi Hilson

"I've been doing a lot of dancing in my apartment. I'll turn on some music and just go. Sometimes it's more structured, sometimes it's interpretive, sometimes I twerk. Also hiking!"

Paige DeSorbo

"My go-to work out is P.Volve, I've gone to their classes for years and now I stream them at home. I try and workout at least 3 to 4 times a week even if its for 30 minutes. Its all about strengthening and elongating your muscles. It's my favorite!"
