The Best Workout for Your Zodiac Sign
We're all drawn to certain fitness regimens or activities over others, but have you ever considered why you opt for boot camp over yoga—or just the opposite—beyond "just cause"? It all comes down to personality, and while looking to the zodiac for guidance might not be the most scientific method, it actually teaches a valuable lesson: It's not just about liking your workout, but also, ideally, finding something that helps you find mental balance in addition to the physical.
And if nothing else, whatever! Astrology is fun. Scroll to your sign to see your fitness match.
For a born competitor, there's no thrill like seeing your name lit up the Flywheel leaderboard, and the high-octane environment of any Spin class keeps you satisfied. But it also gives you something else: community. You thrive on positive energy (hello, SoulCycle), and sweating to the max with a room full of people keeps that Aries arrogance in check.
All right, Taurus—maybe working out isn't your favorite thing in the world. Thanks to ruling planet Venus, you're someone who craves comfort and new, sensory experiences—like the finest chocolate or wine, consumed in your softest sweats. But our best tip for you is to tap into exactly this: If engaging the senses is what you crave, then head outdoors for a run or even a power walk. Keep yourself interested and engaged by trying a new route every day, and once you've established the habit, that's when your signature persistence will kick in. You'll be signing up for 10Ks and half marathons in no time!
You're all about details, which makes you the ideal candidate for a workout that's all about form. But our advice is to opt for a Pilates class with some kind of meditation or yogic stretching woven in—you need those few moments to quiet your analytic mind and just be. You're strengthening your core, physically and mentally.
Balance is key to mastering those tiny, tricky barre movements—and fortunately, your sign knows a thing or two about balance! That being said, fitness equilibrium is important to you, so make sure you're getting the full-body workout you need. Pure Barre's Platform class was specifically created to amp up the cardio so you don't have to seek it outside the studio.
You live for adventure, Sag, which is why your best workouts usually happen in the great outdoors, and they rarely feel like workouts—they're just new experiences to check off your bucket list. You're the kind of person whose dream vacation doesn't look too different from Cheryl Strayed's trek in Wild, so go ahead—forge ahead off the beaten path.
Take you to the river and drop you in the water, Pisces. You're pretty game for anything aquatic, but bonus points if it's something on the more interesting end of the spectrum: You'd opt for SUP over swimming laps any day. Plus, the serene environment of paddleboarding is great for reflecting and meditating—important aspects of your being.
