Jessica Alba can`t stand gym

Jessica Alba can`t stand gym Los Angeles: Actress Jessica Alba hates working out and prefers dancing and running at home to keep herself in shape.

The 31-year-old, who has two daughters -- Honor, four, and 18-month-old Haven with her husband Cash Warren -- told the Women`s Health magazine in its March issue: "I like doing dance classes. That`s fun. Like hip-hop class, mixed with like core Pilates-type exercises."

"And sometimes I do sprint intervals just because I hate working out. Anything where I have to do something but I can get my mind off of doing it, that`s so much better for me than anything that`s repetitive. Or the music has to be loud and I have to be moving," Alba said, reports contactmusic.com.

"So when I`m at home and I`m working out and I don`t have a partner with me, I like to put bad television on. Usually a pretty embarrassing reality TV show and I do sprint intervals. So I`ll sprint for a minute and walk for 30 seconds and do that on and off for 20-30 minutes usually," she added.
