Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting likes more workout bang for her buck.

The star of “The Wedding Ringer” and TV’s “The Big Bang Theory” admits, “I don’t know anyone who wakes up in the morning saying that they can’t wait to go to the gym.”

When you’re required to look amazing for the camera, workouts are a given. So how does she motivate herself? “I found two things that I really love to do, which is key to sticking with any plan,” she swears.

No. 1: “Spinning is a great all-body workout,” she says. “You’re toning your legs, abs and arms. Grab some friends and hit a spin class together to keep each other accountable. Even better, sit in the front row, so you’re really accountable to the teacher. I think it’s all about pushing yourself to the next level, plus when you’re in a class you don’t feel so alone. Everyone can push through it together.”

No. 2: “I like to add yoga a few days a week to the mix or I’ll go horseback riding. When you’re outside working out, it doesn’t feel like it’s a forced workout,” she says.

As for her nutrition habits, Cuoco-Sweeting says that eating at home helps. Plus, she works out in order to chow down from time to time.

“My girlfriends and I joke that the only reason we work out is to eat. I could eat a large pizza by myself covered in everything.”

Cuoco-Sweeting stars as the fiancee of a friendless man (Josh Gad) in the comedy “The Wedding Ringer,” opening Jan. 16. Recently married to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting, she said the movie made her think about finding love. “I met my husband when I was 28 turning 29. It was love at first sight. I moved fast, and I knew what I wanted. I wasn’t waiting around.

“That’s how I am in my life,” she said. “I see. I do it.”
