Those born to the zodiac sign Virgo often feel obliged to serve others, but can also be quite critical and picky of how things are done. Yoga is a great opportunity for them to release anxiety and relax.

Aquarius: Community Workout
Those with the Aquarius sign have a strong sense of social conscience and are progressive and engaging people. Because of this, they are likely to lean towards team sports and community workouts. Alternatives to group workouts at gyms are outdoor community workouts like those organized by SundayShred where a strong sense of community and support system are huge parts of accomplishing the workout.
Taking after the likeness of the fish zodiac sign, those born to the sign of Pieces are spiritual and they tend to focus on their inner journey. They spend their days dreaming of secret illusionary worlds which makes swimming a great activity for them to enjoy because of its quiet and solitary nature.
Unsurprisingly, a type of exercise that would best fit Libras is barre. This type of workout draws out elements from strength training, yoga, and pilates. It’s a bodyweight exercise that targets the whole body instead of individual muscle groups. This workout emphasizes on balance — a value Libras take hold great importance in.
Scorpio: Rock Climbing
Scorpios are investigative and resourceful people. Although they tend to see things in black and white, they are able to easily identify beginnings and endings of a process and work tirelessly to achieve their goals. This makes rock climbing a great workout for them as it has a clear start and endpoint which also offers an intense work out in the process. There are a few rock climbing gyms in the city such as Attic V and Verm City.
Those who are born to the Sagittarius sign have more of a wanderer’s spirit. They are much more inclined to venture out and speak with others to broaden their minds and seek out knowledge. Their interests tend to grow into areas of philosophy and religion. Although CrossFit might initially seem like an odd pairing for a Sagittarius, it requires a great deal of mental maturity and determination to perform CrossFit exercises. The movements typically involve high-intensity strength and conditioning workouts that use day-to-day functional movements that are quite fitting to a wanderer’s attributes.
Calisthenics and Capricorns are like a match made in fitness heaven the way that Capricorns are dedicated and ambitious hard workers that don’t mind taking things one step at a time. This makes their characters perfectly suited for activities that require practice, like Calisthenics. This exercise differs in level, intensity, and rhythm and improves on strength, endurance, flexibility, and coordination which are well-suited skill sets to work towards for Capricorns’ practical way of thinking.
