The Best Workouts for You Based on Your Zodiac

Have you ever wondered why you prefer yoga over running? Or why your friend enjoys biking alone while you need that extra motivation a group workout gives you? It turns out that besides helping you find your soulmate, astrology can teach you how to build a better booty or get a six pack abs of steel - your best bet workout is just written in the stars!

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all type of exercise when it comes to the zodiac. There are zodiac signs that like to sweat while others prefer low-intensity workouts. Independent signs will most likely hit the gym alone while others might need an exercise buddy to hold them accountable.

Maybe it’s not your fault that you gave up in that boot camp a few months ago. It might've been your zodiac warning you that workout wasn’t aligned with your stars. Don’t even sweat it - just let this guide tell you how best to sweat it at the gym, according to your star sign!

 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is all about competing! Whether it is beating a personal record or simply doing better than anyone else in the room, this fire sign is literally on fire. As a born competitor, you love intense workouts, such as indoor cycling, with challenges that include different teams competing against each other. Another option that will satisfy an Aries’ fiery nature is CrossFit. The changing workouts will set new challenges and keep you excited.

As a courageous sign, Aries would enjoy boxing more than any other sign in the zodiac. Pull on those gloves and start punching; warrior Mars is by your side!

 

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Working out is not Taurus’ favorite thing to do. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, this sign would rather indulge in tasty food and sip a good cocktail or wine. However, those abs won’t get rock hard by themselves, right? Astrologists suggest outdoors running for Taurus. You can always try a new route if the old one is no longer exciting you. And comfort is not only about your living room couch - what about a brand new pair of running shoes that your feet will love?

As a sign known for its beauty and grace, you might also be interested in an elegant workout like pilates. Taurus’ idea of working out isn’t just being fit but also building physical and emotional strength, so you might enjoy martial arts as well.

 

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

There must be something to keep Gemini entertained because this sign gets bored easily, so the  dynamic of team sports can keep this sign on track. Maybe handball is your thing or soccer is you calling in the stars? Tennis and boxing are also some of the sports that will bring you a lot of fun while keeping your biceps on point. If you prefer a more classic type of workout, you can sign up for programs that include different things. It has to be fun otherwise your inner child will get bored!

 

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Guided by the moon, Cancers would rather take a romantic walk that sweat on the treadmill. This sign also enjoys being alone which makes home workouts more appealing than ever. There are multiple programs available to download, so start searching for the one that’s written in your stars.

As someone who puts emotions above all, at-home yoga - with its meditative power - might be your best bet. Yoga allows you to sense every movement strengthening both your body and mind. Since working out is not your favorite thing to do, downloading a fitness app might help you stay on track. If you find it hard to cancel Netflix for the day and move your butt, get yourself an exercise buddy or workout with a trainer to stay motivated.

 

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo needs the spotlight! Group classes will keep that ego boosted because you can show everyone who’s the best (spoiler alert: it’s you!) Any movement class accompanied by a dope playlist and lots of energy is perfect for Leos who want to show off.

As a sign ruled by the sun, physical appearance is important to Leos, so from dancing to CrossFit, you need intense workouts that will give you a killer shape and definition to admire in the mirror. Choose something sociable and dynamic to match that fiery energy and give you the much-needed attention. Working out is just another chance to put on a show, Leo!

 

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is all about the details! Complex exercises that require a lot of attention to detail are your best bet. That person who’s never late for a pilates class is likely to be a representative of this sign. Virgos don’t mind routine - they even like it! If there is any pilates program that involves a bit of meditation and yoga, go for it. Your over-analytical mind needs to relax! How else would you be able to plan your life to the tiniest detail?

Weight training is also right up your alley. These detailed exercises usually require a lot of focus - which is just what puts a smile on your face.

 

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras might have a hard time to convince themselves to work out. No worries, an exercise buddy that doesn’t take shit will put you in order! Don’t get mad if your exercise buddy is a bit tough on you, because your body and spirit will be thankful in the end.

Whether is a hike in nature or working out at the gym, do it in a pair. Since your sign knows quite a lot about balance, you might also enjoy barre exercises.

 

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

On the dark side of the zodiac, it’s all about intense workouts! Scorpios need something hot to match their dynamic nature - like hot yoga, for example. You are born to do high-intensity workouts like it’s no big deal! You don’t mind getting all messy and sweaty as long as you have fun.

As a water sign, too, Scorpios might find swimming and other water sports very entertaining. Then, to fight your demons, try boxing! Go for everything that will make you feel hella tired because you don’t lack energy. You can go even harder the very next day!

 

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius would rather explore than hit the gym. This sign is all about traveling, freedom and being outside. Your workouts shouldn't even feel like exercising. Go for a hike out of town or in every new place you visit.

Staying in good shape is not the only priority you have. Connecting with nature is also important to you. If you want something more intense, you can try mountain biking, rock climbing or skiing.

 

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is a disciplined, hard-working sign that doesn’t work out just for the sake of looking good. For this sign, health is a priority. You tend to think about work - and more work! - all the time. Therefore, you need something that will help you to unplug and recharge. Engaging in activities such as cycling, yoga, and pilates will de-stress your mind and shape your body.

Workout challenges might be a fun option for you because your Capricorn nature makes you work even harder when you set specific goals.

 

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

As an air sign, Aquarius can’t stand routine. Workouts must be dynamic and diverse to keep this sign motivated. Although trampoline might not be the first thing that comes to your mind, your airy nature will love it! Other adventurous workouts that you’d be down to try include aerial yoga, trapeze or even parkour.

Group classes are also your thing because socializing is as important to you as staying in good shape.  Find yourself a flexible trainer or instructor because you don’t like to be forced and pushed. Don’t forget to prepare a killer workout playlist because music literally makes you a better person

.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Without a doubt, there isn’t a better workout for you than swimming. In fact, you’d be down to try any water sport out there. As a highly spiritual sign, you’ll enjoy sports like paddle boarding that allow you to quiet your mind and meditate.

Pisces are full of emotions, so they might lose interest if something doesn’t feel right. It’s all about finding the perfect workout. Creative workouts like Zumba or cardio dance are also something you should take into consideration.
