The Best Type of At-Home Exercise Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Tags:

We all know we need to keep moving our bodies even while we’re stuck inside and social distancing. But, ugh, it can be so hard to convince yourself sometimes, am I right? Well, maybe that’s because we’re not focusing on the right type of workout for us — or more specifically, our zodiac sign.

You might not really believe in horoscopes and zodiac traits, but it’s still a fun way to inspire yourself to get your heart pumping! Who knows, the perfect workout routine for you really might be written in the stars.

Take a look to see the best at-home exercise options based on your zodiac sign!

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius 

These fire signs are fueled by plenty of passion. You might want to try a high-intensity interval workout (HIIT) like Burn Boot Camp, which was founded by former San Francisco Giants’ player Devan Kline and his wife, Morgan. They offer a free 14-day free trial which will give you access to their livestream workouts. You can also check out their YouTube page for workout and diet tips. 

High-energy workouts like these won’t just help fire signs break a sweat, but also help improve memory, according to recent studies. 

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces

As water signs, this trio is known for being intuitive and frequently lost in deep thought. Rather than focusing on their muscles, they can benefit more from working out their minds through meditation. You might assume exercising the brain won’t necessarily help with shedding pounds and staying fit, but experts claim meditation can actually be the key to finally unlocking weight loss and exercise success. 

Apps like Headspace and Aura are currently offering free membership to help everyone get the hang of mindful meditation while we’re stuck indoors.

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius 

Don’t even think about calling these signs air-headed — like water signs, they are deep thinkers who just lean a little more on the dreamier side of things. Repetitive exercises like jogging and cycling help to both clear their mind and give them space to daydream without losing track of their workout. 

If you already have a treadmill, stationary bike, or other exercise machine, hop on! You might also like trying out guided exercises on the Peloton app, which is currently offering 90 days free to anyone who signs up before April 30. Of course, going for a jog or bike ride outside can also be a work great without, no machinery required!

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn 

These signs like to keep themselves grounded with patience and stability (sometimes confused as stubbornness by others), which makes yoga a great choice for staying fit and healthy. Holding poses and connecting with their body through breathing exercises will help stretch out their bodies and minds.

Comfort-loving earth signs don’t even have to leave their beds to get benefits from yoga that helps with issues like balancing blood sugar and healing their thyroid. You can also follow along with the experts at CorePower Yoga, who are currently offering free livestream classes on their YouTube account at various times throughout the day until we’re all able to get back out into a studio.

Of course, you don’t have to stick to just what we suggest for your own sign. Mix it up with whatever feels best to you, whether the stars align or not!
