Getting into shape is about as easy as resisting a free box of Krispy Kreme donuts. Yeah, it’s really, really, hard. And, it’s even harder when you feel like there’s no right sport out there for you.
Chances are, you just need to find the right kind of workout: one that’ll get your heart pumping, the sweat pouring, and leave you looking forward to next time! We’ve consulted your zodiac, and it turns out that there are still some unconventional exercises out there for you to try.
Read on to find out what you’ll be doing, next!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
If you’re an Aries, you need to do something that will really set your inner flame alight. You thrive on competition and adventure. As far as you’re concerned, when it comes to exercise, if there’s no thrill in it, why bother with it in the first place?
Contact sports, like martial arts, are great for someone like you – from karate, to taekwondo, to boxing and mixed martial arts, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from. With your fire-y attitude, Aries, you’ll be fighting like Jackie Chan in no time.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’re known for your stamina, and endurance. Some might call it bull-headedness, but once you’ve committed to something, you’ve got the dedication to see it through. Being an earth sign, you’re at your peak when you exercise outside.
Have you ever thought about playing Quidditch? Yes, it’s the same sport from Harry Potter. Quidditch for muggles is like a mix of football, dodgeball, and tag, all played on the one field, while the players keep a broom between their legs. It’s high time you gave it a try, Taurus, and embraced your inner witch.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Your idea of exercise involves moving your mouth, Gemini. For you, exercise works best when you can socialise with everyone around you. Of course, it’s even more motivating when you can wrangle a buddy into coming with you, so you can work up a sweat together.
That is why wife-carrying is perfect exercise for you, Gemini. It’s not complicated; it’s a sport that is exactly what it says on the tin. And, let’s face it, half of the battle is mental, with this one. It’s about being able to support your other half when you compete together. Gemini, with your gift of the gab, you’ll be in the perfect position to give your partner in crime that bolster they need to cross the finish line.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, we know that you like to get in touch with your feelings, no matter what you do. And, your exercise routine is no exception. For you, exercise is really about experiencing the endorphin high that a good workout brings.
Let’s face it, Cancer, the best way for you to burn those calories is to get hot and sweaty with another gorgeous soul in bed. A solid bonk ticks all the boxes for you. Exercise? Tick. Intimacy? Tick. Bragging rights over your newfound sex life? That’s a bonus.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Exercise for a Leo isn’t just about getting fit – it’s about the performance of it all. You’re confident, courageous, and you like showing that off. You’re all about being at the centre of attention, and that doesn’t change when you exercise.
Dancing fits you and your style, Leo. The more energetic, the better. For you, this could be as simple as bounding around the house, shaking it all out. Or, getting some structure into your routine and taking classes. The point is, you’ve got the energy and vivaciousness needed for showing off some serious moves.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, you’re one organised soul. Exercise, for you, is about making sure it fits into your routine. If you were really honest, you don’t mind doing the same thing, day in, day out – as long as it gives you the results you’re looking for. After all, you’re a perfectionist at heart.
As an earth sign, you’re pretty comfortable gardening. And, don’t get us wrong, we’re not just talking about just pulling out weeds. Hauling big plants, and shovelling mountains of dirt really gets you breaking a sweat! It also gets a routine going, since you’ll have to give your green babies attention every day. And, you’ll be seeing visible results in no time – both in your body, and in your rejuvenated garden.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
As the sign of the scales, you excel at balancing activities, Libra. You’ve got a sense of poise that some people can only dream of. You’re not too fussed over the competitive aspect to some sports, so you’re usually happy just working up a sweat.
Libra, mountain biking is your style. More often than not, you’ll stay on the bike when other people would fall off. And, as an air sign, you’ll thrive on the fresh mountain air when you go biking.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, your ideal exercise routine incorporates some intensity. You like to get in touch with your competitive side when you’re getting sweaty. But, let’s face it, you’re really in your element when you embrace your more seductive side.
Pole dancing incorporates everything you’re looking for in a workout, Scorpio. While most pole dancers make the art look easy, it’s anything but. You’ll start doing pole dancing for sexiness of it all, but stay to prove yourself in the championships.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Cheerful and optimistic are two words that best describe you, Sagittarius. And, part of maintaining that upbeat outlook is having a workout that makes you happy. Since you’re a free spirit with a lot of energy, you need an exercise routine that reflects that.
The perfect way to work up a sweat for a Sagittarius is to go trampolining. Let’s face it, it’s hard to not feel happy after bounding your way through an exercise session.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
As an earth sign, Capricorn, you thrive on competitiveness in your exercise routine. You’ve got the ability to endure, so for your workouts, you need something to make you break a sweat, and then continue to break a sweat. Your determination to succeed means that you’ll never let a hard session get the best of you.
Have you ever tried zorbing, Capricorn? Some would describe it as an extreme sport – after all, it involves getting inside a gigantic plastic ball, and rolling your way to the finish line. It takes considerable strength to control where you want to go, and we know that you’ll be up for the challenge.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Aquarius, being the intellectual you are, you thrive most when your exercise routine engages both your body, and your brain. Your love of technology definitely influences your workouts. Variety is what keeps you engaged when you exercise – routines can kill your enthusiasm for getting fit.
The internet is your best friend when it comes to putting together an exercise program for you, Aquarius. We know that one day you’ll be scouring an app to get in touch with your inner yogi, and the next you’ll be firing up Youtube for a solid HIIT session.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
For Pisces, you need a workout that meshes with your sensitive personality. Since you’re drawn to taking care of the people around you, it means that you need to let off some steam more regularly than most. You benefit from the stress-relief exercise can give you when you’ve had a good session.
Being the sign of the fish, anything involving water is good exercise for a Pisces. Have you ever tried aquajogging? It says it all in the title – and it’s even popular enough to have its own world championships every year. Maybe we’ll see you there, one day!
