Lauren Conrad doesn't mince words: she hates the gym. "I'm just not a fan of the gym," Lauren has said. "In fact, I hate it. I understand loving the feeling you get after working out all those endorphins. But going there? It's the worst." So what does she do instead? LA girl Lauren tries to get outside as much as possible to work out; she spends her weekends hiking, kayaking, and paddleboarding.

Kelly Osbourne famously became a fitness fanatic through learning to dance on DWTS, but she still admits to hating certain workouts — especially running. But that doesn't stop Kelly; she still pushes herself on the treadmill with the help of a tip from her trainer, who introduced her to intervals. "I hate running, but my fitness trainer showed me a different way to do it," she recently said. "You run for a minute on and off and before you know it you've done half an hour on the treadmill without even realizing."

Try Kelly's technique! Here's a treamill interval workout. It'll make your gym time fly by.

Emma Stone recently signed up with rumored boyfriend Andrew Garfield's trainer while they both got fit for their upcoming film The Amazing Spider-Man, but there's another trainer that you won't find her busting moves for: celeb favorite Tracy Anderson. Of the trainer's fitness program, Emma recently told Vanity Fair, “It’s like: Eat this diet, which is a palm-size piece of chicken and some beans, and work out two hours a day for the rest of your life.” Instead, Emma turns to weight training and Pilates to keep fit.

Julianne Moore likes peace and quiet. What she doesn't like? Aggressive gym workouts. She recently told SHAPE: "My girlfriend was like, "Let’s go spinning!" I went and was like, "Oh my God, my head hurts from the yelling and yelling and yelling." It was too much stimulation for me. My friend loved it because it got her energized and excited, but for me I just got overwhelmed." Instead, Julianne does Ashtanga yoga three times a week and runs. "I really like yoga; I enjoy the actual doing of it, so it doesn’t feel like the agony of the gym felt like to me," she says.

Unlike Julianne Moore, Marisa Miller can't get enough of sweaty bouts at a gym. "I've tried Pilates and yoga, but they're a little too meditative for me," she has said. "I go to a down-and-dirty boxing gym. I don't want to worry about how I look or whether I'm wearing the perfect outfit. For me, it's about focusing for an hour and a half on my workout."
