Whether or not you believe in them, you have to admit that horoscopes are scarily accurate sometimes. “I’m not going to feel like getting out of bed on Monday morning? That is so me!” Jokes aside, they’re a fun way to see what might be in store for the not-so-distant future.
You may already look to your horoscope daily, monthly or once in a blue moon for relationship advice or career tips, so why not find a workout that suits your star sign’s character traits? Lucky for you, we’ve done the hard work for you and matched each sign with its most compatible workout.
Of course, these workout options aren’t the be-all and end-all. After all, there’s something to be said for variety. But, if you’re keen to try something new or simply curious, keep scrolling to see what the stars have in store for your exercise regime.
The best workout for you, according to your star sign
Aries are known to energetic, determined, passionate, and at times, fiery, as well as highly competitive. That’s why high-intensity workouts like karate, tae kwon do, jujitsu, and kickboxing suit Aries perfectly.
Ruled by the dual sign of the twins, Geminis are known for their changeable mood and/or behavior. That’s why HIIT is a perfect option for this sign. It’ll provide variety, help keep you focused and clear your mind.
Generally speaking, Cancers are the ultimate homebodies, as the moon – the celestial body of moods and emotions, rules them. They’re sensitive, domestic, compassionate and creative. With this in mind, we’d suggest yoga. Yoga will help boost your mood whilst toning your body at the same time.
Let’s be honest, Leos – you’re definitely not shy. You’re nakedly honest and wear your heart on your sleeve. You like to see and be seen. A trendy new workout class will not only challenge you but also suit your personality to a T.
In a nutshell, Virgos tend to be hard-working, health-conscious, detail-orientated, witty and practical. But, they also have a tendency to be uptight and averse to getting super sweaty. That’s why the structure, precision, and low-impact nature of Pilates is right up your (perfectionist) alley.
Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty, and relationships. They’re graceful, and enjoy the company of other people, so tennis or Acroyoga could be the perfect workout for the Libran sensibility.
With their naturally outgoing, positive nature, Sagittarius’ love adventure and spending time outdoors. Challenge yourself to long hikes, horseback riding, and skiing.
Ruled by the driven and persistent Mountain Goat, Capricorns are determined and self-disciplined, focused on the toughest of goals. Training for a marathon or fitness event (like Tough Mudder) will most likely appeal to your sensibilities.
Aquarians are particularly unique – you’re fiercely independent and a team player. Join a social team sport or try a workout class to satisfy both parts of your persona.
