So it’s recommended choosing a workout program that focuses on your temper and your most effective traits. Here is where astrology comes to our aid. Passion.ru will uncover for us which type of sport various zodiac signs should be taking up.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Aries, your whole life is like a fight and dance, passion and rush; that’s why you, unlike anyone else, needs a unique combination of callisthenics and martial arts that’s regarded with a mysterious name, “capoeira”.
The beauty of the movements, the splash of energy, the high and low body positions - altogether helps every muscle being toned. The element of the game that’s present in each “fight” won’t let you get bored; while the competitive moment will propel your desire to win.
The Amazonian female warrior and at the same time – sensual “hot” beauty, Lara Croft, the goddess Bast – those are the characters that you create while practicing capoeira.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Taurus, you’ll always strive to be equals to men, because the best physical activity for you is the one that not only works out the body, but the mind as well; more specifically, the tactics and strategy.
Picture this: wearing military clothes and with a tilted gun, you run from one hiding spot to another looking for cover, then aiming at the enemy … making a shot … and seeing the hat of the “enemy” decorated with a fresh trail of red ink. – that is the true choice of the Taurus lady.
This amusing game works out the legs and spine splendidly, perfects your shooting accuracy and ability to shoot at a distance; and most important, allows you to feel “her own” in the world of men that are always fighting for something. Let the members of the stronger sex be in awe when you enter the “warfare”.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21 )
Gemini, you seem to float in the air, or at least in your thoughts. In order for your body not to argue with your ideas about yourself, you should do some jumping on the trampoline. Soaring into the sky, you’ll feel that you are literally growing wings, and you’re flying, flying, flying … meanwhile your body becomes leaner, muscles get stronger, and the vestibular apparatus – healthier.
Do you want excercising to be more dynamic and appealing? Invite a friend to go with you and arrange a small competition: the one who’ll jump higher, whose workout will last longer – is the winner. Another option is to dance! Your style – acrobatic rock ‘n’ roll: fun, energetic, with a twinkle. This is what’s going to keep you in good shape – and relative to the body, and in terms of mental attitude.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22 )
People under the sign of Cancer make a true mermaid. Your element is water, and that’s exactly what’s going to make your body gorgeous; and in addition, will give an enviable composure. Water aerobics, synchronized swimming, or simply a flexible program in the pool – feel free to choose the type of water fitness that will make you feel most comfortable.
Would you like to have unforgettable impressions? Move away from the pool into open waters. Diving and snorkelling will introduce you to the world which can easily become yours if you will devote studying the river or sea depths at least 3-4 hours per week. It’s important not to overdo it, otherwise you won’t wish to return back to the surface, and you’ll grow gills.
Leo( July 23 – August 22 )
Leo – you are considered fire and passion. Fiery rumba, playful salsa, reserved but at the same time sensual and passionate flamenco, paso doble – all the charms of Latin dances at at your feet. This type of fitness is called “Zumba”. There’s a rush and pride to it, and it helps to maintain an incredible posture and keep your spine straight – your weak spot.
And if you feel that there’s a real lioness slumbering inside of you, then argentine tango will help to wake her up – another form of exercise that combines many of your character traits. What can be better than keeping the body toned and lean and attracting admiring glances of others by performing perfect moves in a glamourous outfit?

Beautiful body for Virgos is a matter of honor, therefore in every move you make, you try to accentuate your figure. is your kind of fitness. It precisely allows you to coordinate everyday actions with muscle training ,and exercises – with reality.
Therefore in the process of exercising, you pull the stomach in and imagine that you’re trying to fit into very tight jeans or underwear; imagine how you’re working the muscles on your arms. This is called the “sculpting body using the power of thought.” Your gym will always be where you are – at work, at home, in public transport. Even sitting in front of a computer, you can stretch and straighten your back as if you sat on the mat for Pilates.
Libra ( September 23 – October 22 )
For Libra, you just need to learn how to “take a punch.” Somewhere deep inside of you – a Virgo-warrior, stacking piles of opponent’s, left to right. However, your innate intelligence and sensitivity doesn’t allow you to get involved in a fine fight. Although it harmonizes so well!
Try first starting a “fight” with a punching bag, and in order to make it less boring, imagine that you’re punishing a nasty neighbor who puts his car under your windows, already going on a fourth month of making repairs, listening to music loudly … (underline the important), or your boss, who once again had a “hysteria” for no apparent reason.
Boxing appears too harsh for you? Rather make a choice to try fencing. In addition, you can pick ki-bo – it will be useful to develop a respiratory system for an air sign like you.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios, you are considered the very embodiment of sexual energy, so poledancing is for you. This type of fitness (classes on the pylon (pole), including elements of erotic dance and gymnastics) will not only strengthen all of your muscle groups, but would also greatly expand your sexual horizons.
Stripper’s pole, sensual music, full command of your body … Such room for the imagination! Just after a few sessions, you will have no equals in the art of seduction of men, and your body will be envied by all the ladies around you.
On the contrary,if you want you to suppress your burning passions inside, yoga is the preferred choice or tantra yoga, in case you wish to learn to work with energy.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Your fearlessness combined with a craving for adventure will help you get true satisfaction from the IOPS-fitness and your body will be slim and toned.
Got no time for travelling to the stables? Then go with cycling – “iron horse” is no less effective than the real thing. It’s true that the bike not as close to touching the soul, but it doesn’t lash out, and it can be kept at home.
Get a stand that turns an ordinary bike into an exercise bike, so that during wintertime, you’d be able to keep yourself in great shape.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19 )
Capricorns, your fitness image – Rock Climber. Brave and beautiful maiden, who is attracted by the heights, and no mountains are better than “the only mountains that haven’t been climbed yet.” Outdoors or indoors, for beginners or for advanced levels- climbing wall is at your service.

You’d be able to fulfill your ambitions and come through athletic victories on the business stage. And who knows, perhaps in the next six months you’d want to conquer not the wall in the rock climbing gym, but for instance on Mount Everest or Mont Blanc.
