The 54-year-old actress was announced as the face of Pvovle in June, a workout app and studio that focuses on low-impact workouts.
After loving the program, she contacted the company for personal training sessions – with Pvovle’s training director Dani Coleman admitting she was “beside herself”.
“She just realized you don’t have to break your body, which is what a lot of us grew up thinking about training,” Coleman said. Business Insider.
“As a former dancer, I always thought I had to suffer from movement and, yes, that’s not true.”
Coleman has now been training the Friends star for a year and a half, with the fit actress working out two to three times a week in hour-long sessions.
The personal trainer described Aniston as “friendly and hardworking” during her sessions.
“It’s not just about doing moves to train, it’s really about understanding and diving deep into your body and our method,” Coleman said.
She added that it’s important to remember that a workout doesn’t have to be painful.
“When we think of archaic ideas of training, we think, ‘No pain, no gain,'” Coleman emphasized.
“We really want to challenge that conversation and say, ‘Hey, you can feel good doing your workouts and get the results you want.’
“So it’s really about durability and longevity,” the fitness trainer added.
Aniston said training with Pvolve changed her approach to fitness, calling it an innovative method that she “instantly fell in love with” (2023 photo).
