Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
As the zodiac’s ruler of health and fitness, you know the importance of exercise better than any other sign, and you have the self-discipline to stick with a routine. You prefer workouts that are structured, efficient and get the job done, such as interval circuit training at a health club or using a Bowflex at home.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Of all the signs, you’re the one least likely to work out on your own because you prefer to socialize while you exercise. You’re also not a fan of sweaty gyms or extreme workouts. Meeting a friend at a stylish studio for a yoga or Qi Gong class followed by a leisurely bite to eat is your ideal workout because there’s less perspiring and more socializing.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Known for your intense approach, you want a full-body workout that also strengthens your mind. That’s why your first choice is usually the martial arts, followed by kickboxing, weight training and Buti Yoga. An extremely sensual sign, you also enjoy seductive dance workouts such as tango lessons, pole dancing or belly dancing.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
You don’t like to be bored or confined, which is why your workout includes a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities. You hit the gym for strength training but get your cardio from hiking, running or cycling. Your love of friendly competition enjoys playing any sport where you have a chance to best your opponent and then go out to have a drink together.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Of all the signs, you’re the one most likely to hire a personal trainer to teach you how to perform each exercise correctly. Since you view exercise as a job to be done and want to do it as efficiently as possible, a straightforward Reformer Pilates routine that targets your entire body, enhances flexibility and helps reduces stress is the way to go.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Your relationship with exercise isn’t always a consistent one, because you don’t like to be tied to a set schedule or work out alone. Your best bet is a health club that offers ongoing fitness classes at a wide array of days and times. Not only does it allow you to work out on your own schedule, but it also satisfies your need for variety and social interaction.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
Truth be told, going to a gym or a health club doesn’t rank high on your list. A sensitive soul, you prefer a less energetic environment and a workout that promotes emotional tranquility as well as physical vitality. Whether at home or a quiet studio, your best workouts include some form of yoga, Tai Chi or other discipline that combines breathing, stretches, postures and meditation.
