Eva Longoria is getting totally real about her attitude towards fitness.

“I don’t enjoy working out,” the actress, 42, admits in the June issue of Health, on newsstands Friday. “I always wish my trainer doesn’t show up! I’m always like, ‘I hope he cancels, I hope he cancels…’ ”

When she does get herself motivated to get in a workout, Longoria has a few go-tos.

“I’m a runner, first of all. I run a lot,” she says. “But I also do SoulCycle, Pilates, yoga. I usually mix it up. Now I’m starting with weight training.”

Longoria says she works out not only to feel good about her body, but also to stay healthy.

“We do have a lot of pressure when people are telling us what we should look like. And I think you have to find your own truth,” she tells the magazine. “I don’t feel like we should go by these rules and social constructs of society, where you have to be a certain size to be pretty. But I’ve had friends who don’t work out or take care of themselves, and all of a sudden, there’s a health issue.”
