Guessing someone’s zodiac sign correctly based on their personality and quirky habits has to be a superpower. So, today, we’re flexing our “psychic power” by playfully matching zodiac signs with their ideal workouts.  


Aries (March 21- April 20) 

Aries, you're a total knockout - literally. Given your bold and competitive nature, you need a workout that allows you to show up and be you. Based on this very fact, the perfect workout for you is BOXING. The way you bob and weave through life and are always prepared for anything says that you’re the Laila Ali of your crew. 

Here are some of the benefits of boxing: 

  • It’s cardio-driven. Boxing gives you a full-body workout where you're using your legs, arms, and core. Doing this workout consistently will help you reach your fitness goals.  
  • It helps define your abs because every time you make a jab, you’re working midsection along with your arm. 
  • It improves your agility. Boxing is not a stationary sort of workout or sport. You must be light on your feet.  
  • It gives you a sense of security. We pity the fool who catches you on a bad day. Even if your only opponent is a punching bag, in a real-life situation (if need be) you might be able to protect yourself with the moves you learn in boxing class. 


Taurus (April 21- May 21)

If you ask us, Tauruses get a bad rap for being stuck in their ways, a bit opinionated, and bull-like sometimes. However, Tauruses are at their best when they’re doing something that brings them a sense of calm - be it reading or listening to music. The best workout for this earth sign is PILATES. Why Pilates, you ask? Pilates is the cousin to Yoga, but it focuses on increasing your core and muscle strength. 

Here are some of the benefits of Pilates: 

  • It helps with your posture
  • Strengthens your abdominal muscles 
  • Improves back pain 
  • Increases your flexibility 


Gemini (May 22- June 20) 

Geminis are known for being playful, extroverted, and highly intelligent. Considering that they’re usually the life of the party, a HULA HOOP exercise is right up their alley.  

Here are some of the benefits of a hula hoop exercise: 

  • It’s inexpensive. You don’t need a trainer or the gym to perform this exercise. 
  • It’s portable
  • Strengthens your core muscles
  • Sheds inches from your waist

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Besides Cancers’ reputation for being crab-like in their interactions with people, they’re quite the intuitive, almost psychic bunch. Nothing gets past them. Rest your mind, body, and soul Cancers, and do some YOGA.   


Leo (July 23-August 22)

It looks like both singer and actress Jennifer Lopez and her beau, actor Ben Affleck are Leos. Whether or not dating your own zodiac sign is a faux pas, we wouldn't know. However, we know that JLO has never missed a workout. Perhaps she follows a HIGH-INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING (HIIT) workout. Essentially, this work encompasses alternating between spurts of intense workouts with spurts of rest. 

Here are some benefits of a HIIT workout:  

  • Prevent muscle loss or atrophy
  • No equipment is needed
  • Promotes heart health 
  • Helps burn calories 

Libra (September 22- October 23) 

It is said that Libras make great romantic partners given their harmonious disposition and extroverted personality. However, if they can’t be your beau, maybe they can be your workout partner. Libras do well during ONE-ON-ONE workouts. 

Here are some of the benefits of one-on-one workouts:

  • You have an accountability partner
  • You learn new exercises and techniques 
  • They give you pointers on your form 
  • You can walk or ride to the gym together 


Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorns are quite the ambitious ones. They're your CEOs and girl bosses. Their time might be limited, but they’re committed to WALKING as their form of cardio.

Here are some of the benefits of walking: 

  • Helps improve blood circulation 
  • Promotes cardiovascular health
  • Improves bone and muscle function 
  • Promotes immune health


Virgo (August 23-September 22)

The most famous Virgo is the multi-Grammy winning artist, Beyonce. Do you think Ms. Queen Bey could go on tour almost every year without having an intense workout and diet regimen? Virgos, follow your leader and hit them circuit workouts like you’re performing on a world tour. CIRCUIT workouts are consecutive timed exercises such as burpees, lunges, and squats with varying rest periods. 

Here are some benefits of circuit workout:

  • Provides a full-body workout 
  • Promotes heart health
  • No equipment is needed 
  • Adds variety to your workouts


Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)

The best workout for Sagittarius is DANCING. Ironically, Aries are their best match. While Aries “dances” in the boxing ring, Sagittarius can dance anywhere. 

Here are some benefits of dancing as a workout:

  • You’re exercising while having fun 
  • It breaks up the monotony of other types of activities 
  • You move calories 
  • It’s a total body exercise


Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

Scorpios are said to be bold, mysterious, and determined. They love a good challenge, and here lies the reason for their propensity for doing STRENGTH UPPER BODY workouts. Common upper body workouts are bench presses, bicep curls, and pushups.

Here are some benefits of a strength upper body workout:

  • Improves your posture
  • Helps enhance muscle strength 
  • Gives your arms and shoulders definition
  • Helps potentiate other workouts and sports that require great upper body strength


Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

You know the saying, “Never trust a big butt and a nice smile”? Well, that’s an Aquarius. Those LOWER BODY workouts fit their bubbly personality to a T and give them the most glorious gluteus maximus. 

Here are the benefits of lower body workouts: 

  • Nice butt and calves 
  • Weight loss 
  • Improves balance 
  • Helps manage arthritis 


Pisces (February 19-March 20) 

Pisces is a creative being who's always in a dream-like state. She doesn't fancy intense workouts, but good stretching makes her feel like she’s in the water. STRETCHING helps remove all the kinks. 

Here are some of its benefits: 

  • Helps improve posture 
  • It relieves sore muscles 
  • Improves back pain
  • Promotes increased flexibility 


While this was a playful exercise in choosing the best workouts based on your zodiac sign, remember, whatever you do, 35 minutes of intense physical activity goes a long way. So, get up and move in your Tribe 35 plus size leggings!
