- Everyone stop what you’re doing and watch Queen Jennifer Garner crush an intense box jump workout in a new video she just posted to TikTok.
- The 50-year-old does not mess around when it comes to her fitness goals, but somehow she makes even the toughest workouts look…really fun?!
- Jen works out with trainer Beth Nicely (featured on the TikTok workout) to get her sweat on.
Jennifer Garner has a way of making everything look fun (have you seen her “Pretend Cooking Show” on Instagram?!). Well, now Jen is here with a TikTok workout that will make you want to get your sweat on ASAP. It’s also just a dose of pure joy.
The TikTok features the newly minted 50-year-old actress doing a series of box jumps alongside trainer Beth Nicely of The Limit. And despite how tough box jump workouts are, it looks like the two are ~actually~ having a ton of fun.
The video kicks off with Jen and Beth clapping before moving into some seriously complicated footwork-slash-choreography while jumping onto and off their boxes. It’s so intense that I’m not even going to attempt to explain it—it’s just really, really cool.
At the end, Jennifer walks away, clearly wiped (fair), while Beth laughs, claps, and says, “that was so fast!” People freaked in the comments. “Wow! 🥰 Are you reversing your age now, 50 going on 13?!? 🥰 You are rocking it out!” one person wrote. “I legit would have broken an ankle,” said another. SAME.

Jennifer doesn’t screw around with her fitness and it shows. When she’s not completely owning box jump workouts, she’s doing dance-based exercises with Nicely. “I consider her a professional athlete in what she’s capable of physically,” Nicely told Shape. “We both love to dance, we both love to work hard, I think it’s a good combination.”
Nicely said that a go-to workout for Jen usually includes a solid warm-up, followed by dances to get her heart rate up. “We might do two to four dances and then I’ll usually take her through a plyometric box series,” she said. Soo…basically, what the duo just showed off on TikTok.

They’ll typically follow the box series up with some strength training before heading back to a box workout. Oh! And the two also do something Nicely calls “the Circuit” which is designed to max Jen out. It features three exercises—eight box jumps, 40 jump rope reps, and 16 leaps over a mini trampoline while holding a 10-pound medicine ball, per Shape.
The goal, Nicely said, is to do five rounds in under three minutes. Whew!
Jen eats well, too—she’s worked with nutritionist Kelly LeVeque, of the “Be Well by Kelly Diet,” according to Delish, and has even posted on Instagram about one of LeVeque’s smoothies. But Jen’s not all healthy eating, crazy workouts, and no play: She’s made it more than clear that she’s obsessed with sweets, even confessing on Instagram in 2020 that her son Samuel told her she was eating too much candy.
Now, can mere mortals do that box jump routine, or…?
