What’s your sign? Ha! Tired of that annoying pickup question in a bar. But it is actually relevant to more than a way to initiate a conversation with a stranger. Your sign can help you work out better and become healthy and fit more efficiently. If you haven’t been getting the results you desire, and feel you are wasting your time, try coordinating your exercise with your Zodiac sign. You might be really surprised.
We all want to feel good physically and mentally and most of us will try any new fad. But this one is no joke. It works and relies on a long-standing age-old tradition. Many people live by their signs and seek help from astrologers for advice based on the position of the planets. For example, as an Aquarius, we know you love ballet and exercising at the bar. You might be ripe for a career in the arts.
If you love long hikes in the outdoors, chances are you are defined by your Sagittarius nature. A forest ranger position might be in your future. And it goes on. Let’s review all twelve signs of the Zodiac to see what suits you. We recognize that you know your sign but are unlikely to associate any workout regime with it. Let’s help you find your way to new possibilities.
How lucky we are to even have the leisure time to work out. We also have many choices and usually go with what’s convenient and close by. A martial arts class might be down the street or a cycling center in your office building. You might live in the country and enjoy the many bike trails with scenic views. But what really is right for your nature, as indicated by your birth sign?
