Zodiac Signs and Working Out
Finding out the right workout for you can be difficult. If you didn’t grow up in an athletic family, it can feel like you’re lost in a sea of options with no idea where to start. But that’s where this article comes in.
Every type of workout has its own rules and personality behind it. That’s why some enjoy CrossFit more than yoga. Those are two very different workouts. Though, there are some who can enjoy the benefits of both. But how do you decide what’s right for you? Let’s first see if your personality and zodiac sign can point you in the right direction.
If you believe in zodiac signs and want to get into a new workout routine, this is the article for you!
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – Weight Training
Capricorns are typically disciplined goal-seekers. The archetype for a Capricorn is someone who commits to the long haul of a dream or goal. While Capricorns can be easy going people, they are also typically more prone to enjoying some sort of structure or form. So they can enjoy spontaneity like having random guests come over, but they also enjoy some structure like ensuring they don’t have guests during times of work.
If you’re a Capricorn, it might be a good idea to go with a tried and true workout like weight training. This is possibly the most well-known workout, and that’s because it is well-established, well-utilized, and well-studied.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – Jogging
An Aquarius at a first glance can seem aloof and off-putting. But really, Aquarians are big thinkers who are much more contemplative and individualistic than we give them credit. Aquarians enjoy incorporating new ideas and perspectives on the world they live in. To go with that desire for peacefulness and enlightenment of the mind, consider getting into jogging around your area. You can learn more about the world you live in while also strengthening yourself.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – Swimming
Pisces are intuitive, emotional, and fluid thinkers. Because of this, they are often artistic and/or empathetic. They are very much about the feels/vibes or a room and the people in it. To go with this calming energy, Pisces could consider a workout that has to do with water. Go to your nearest pool and do a few laps. Be like the Aquarians and strengthen your body while calming your mind.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 20) – Capoeira
Next, we have the fiery Aries who are both elegant but also edging to release a powerful burst of energy. Aries can be passionate and intense while still holding care and consideration in their hearts. Because of that, a workout like capoeira would be great. Capoeira is a martial art that mixes dance, fighting, and acrobatics together. All of these elements make for a fiery, passionate, intense, and fun workout.
Taurus (Apr 21-May 21) – Cycling
If you’re a Taurus, there’s a chance of you being peaceful and gentle, but with a bit of bite. While normally chill, you know how what destabilizing looks and feels like. With that, try a workout that utilizes that desire to be grounded. This could be cycling due to its focus on repetitious pedaling.
Gemini (May 22-Jun 20) – Rock climbing
Or maybe you’re a Gemini who finds themselves in their head a lot. Do you feel like people don’t get you? Think others are boring because they often can’t get on your level or meet you at your own pace? Then a solitary workout like rock climbing might be nice. The dynamic aspect of finding your own path on a varying rock field could be just the trick!
Cancer (Jun 21-Jul 22) – Yoga
Just like Pisces, Cancers are very in touch with emotions and sensitivity. They enjoy intentional activities that engage their body in a release of negative energy. What are some exercises that work with this? Yoga! Embrace the positive vibes and peaceful stretches of yoga and see what you think.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – Dance Classes
For the fiery Leo, life is a party. Leos are creative and energetic and need a way to release all of that energy and passion. So, they should consider taking up a dance class. Whether it’s Zumba, Hip Hop, ballroom, or whatever else, a dance class can help Leos keep their bodies, minds, and hearts moving for years to come.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22) – Gymnastics
Virgo is an earth sign that likes to be efficient and methodical in its pursuit of life. Being logical and practical, Virgos like to see their progress in whatever they do. With that, perhaps taking on gymnastics would be good. You can take a beginner's class to learn the basics and watch yourself get better and better at tumbling and more.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22) – Tai Chi
Libras represent the scales and are all about balance and making things work. Libras tend to be friendly and cooperative but will push back if need be. With that in mind, Tai Chi might be a great workout. Tai Chi is all about balance and using your own natural force to push and pull any energies coming at you. It’s also a very calming experience that doubles as meditation. Try it out!
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – Kickboxing
While Scorpios tend to get the reputation of being fiery and chaotic, Scorpio is actually a water sign. Scorpios find energy in deep connection and intense experiences. So, embracing an intense workout with a lot of release through powerful movements is a great idea. Do you know what fits that description? Kickboxing. Perfect!
Sagittarius (Nov 22- December 21) – Martial Arts
Lastly, we have Sagittarius. This fire sign is dedicated to freedom and exploration. While this sign has problems staying committed, the structure of martial arts might help them stick to working out. It’s full of rules but also focuses on personal strength and using perspective to succeed. If you’re a Sagittarius, try out a martial art like karate and see if the workout works for you.
