Zodiac Sports - Your Star Sign Workout Guide

Want a new, fun way of finding the perfect workout regime just for you? Try following your star sign! As your Zodiac influences your personality, we compiled a list over the best sports for every sign. What's yours?

ARIES (MAR 21 - APR 19)
As an Aries you’re in it to win it. You love competing, but can’t stand loosing. So, a solo sport is to prefer. Having a combative energy and looking for an adrenaline rush, speed sports or contact sports suit you. Try boxing, athletics or motor racing.

TAURUS (APR 21 - MAY 20)
If you’re a Taurus, then comfort’s your thing. And you refuse to forsake it! Sports are there for you to enjoy yourself and recharge your batteries. Outdoor running, rowing, dancing and gymnastics are good for you.

GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 21)
Geminis spell sports T-E-A-M. As long as you’re active in a group or with a partner you’ll be okay. Ball games are perfect for your quick thinking and need for fun. Fitness classes can also suit your star sign.

CANCER (JUN 22 - JUL 22)
The main goal of a Cancer’s workout is to relax and reflect. To be submerged in the experience and enjoy it. Naturally, being a water sign, you’re well suited for swimming, water aerobics, sailing, canoeing, and scuba diving.

LEO (JUL 23 - AUG 22)
Leos want to be admired and be the star! So, like the Aries, you need to win. You have guts and want to show off your muscles, so beach volleyball, athletics and gymnastics suit you. Or any of the latest trends that can give you recognition among your peers.

VIRGO (AUG 23 - SEP 22)
Being a perfectionist, the Virgo needs to constantly evolve in the pursuit of mastering a sport. You’ll be really good at running and sports that require learning a complex technique, such as Chi Gong or martial arts.

LIBRA (SEP 23 - OCT 22)
Libras can’t help it, but even in sports, love is on their minds. Looking elegant and maintaining a beautiful body are also important, but you hate contact sports. So choose sports like Pilates, ballroom dancing, tennis and ice-skating.

SCORPIO (OCT 23 - NOV 21)
Scorpios are renowned as tenacious loners with a temperament. You’ll definitely want to stick to solo sports that help you let out some aggression. Martial arts and extreme sports, like parachuting, are great for you.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 22 - DEC 20)
Energy and motion make the Sagittarius happy. Especially if it involves the outdoors. Horseback riding, trekking and biking in the wilderness are therefore right up your alley. Archery might also be a fun activity to try!

CAPRICORN (DEC 21 - JAN 19)
Forget teams! As a Capricorn you like to compete with yourself and succeed on your own. High endurance and an urge to push your limits make you an excellent marathon runner, skier, cyclist or climber.

AQUARIUS (JAN 20 - FEB 18)
Personal development and spiritual improvement are important to the Aquarius. That’s why Yoga is so great for you. But you also love trying new thing and are drawn to exotic and original sports - whatever they may be! As long as they stand out, they’re for you!

PISCES (FEB 19 - MAR 20)
Like the Cancer, Pisces have a calm temperament and want sports to be relaxing. However, they do enjoy group activities, like stretching classes, if it’s slow-paced. Otherwise, swimming, water polo, and (in extreme cases) diving are the sports for you.

THE 13TH STAR SIGN
A few years ago, the American astronomer Parke Kunkle discovered that Earth’s axis is no longer pointing in the same direction as it did thousands of years ago. The conclusion was therefore, that there is a 13th star sign and that our signs are about a month off. However, the only thing that has changed is the position of the stars and not the position of the planets. And it’s the position of the planets that’s considered to have the most impact on astrology. So, it’s recommended that you stick to your old star signs any ways. But, for fun you might want to know that the 13th star sign is called Ophiuchus.
