Could Knowing Your Astrological Sign Help Increase Your CrossFit Potential?

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

We all have heard the “What’s your sign?” line, a pick-up method that never works, including in the health club. However, you may be able to use the knowledge you have of your sign of the zodiac to help choose the best workouts for you.

Some astrologists swear by this method of helping their clientele increase their fitness levels, so why not at least look it over? Below are the twelve signs and how you can take advantage of each sign’s natural athletic leanings. This doesn’t mean you can skip your CrossFit schedule because your sign says you were meant to be a belly dancer. These are fun exercise options for rest days.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is a fire sign, which means someone born under the Aries symbol probably likes intensity. Because Aries governs the head, it’s said that those with this astrological sign need to watch against any kind of activity that could lead to head injuries like bumps or concussions.

Suggested Aries Exercises: Tennis, Cycling, Weight Lifting, Kickboxing

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Moving down further on the body, Taurus governs the neck. Unfortunately, they have a penchant for preferring the lifestyle of a couch potato than a gym rat. Thus, they usually prefer activities that are lower-impact and less stressful, including at-home exercises they can do in the comfort of their living rooms.

Suggested Taurus Exercises: Dancing, Yoga, Belly Dancing

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)

Gemini governs the arms, lungs and overall nervous system, so they need to be careful that they ease into any kind of sudden exercises that might require extremely intense or shallow breathing. They also get bored easily, so it’s best if a Gemini does a variety of exercises.

Suggested Gemini Exercises: Gymnastics, Fusion Workouts, Yoga

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)

Cancers are homebodies, but they are also fiercely loyal. That’s why they tend to stick with their routines to the end. This zodiac sign covers the chest and stomach; because it’s also a water sign, you may see plenty of swimmers who are Cancers!

Suggested Cancer Exercises: Swimming, Ab Crunches, Walking, Yoga

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leos rule the heart, the upper back and the spine. They love to be in the limelight, so any sport that allows them to shine will make their day! If they can move and groove in public, they are truly happy campers. Leos are the ones that will talk anyone’s ears off about the new mustang parts they got for their vehicle… all while doing the latest dance moves.
Suggested Leo Exercises: Dancing, Pilates, Rowing, Power Yoga

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos love to stay in tiptop shape. Their sign governs the digestive system and spleen, so they need to make sure they eat cleanly or else they tend to ail in those areas. They do love outdoor exercising and may feel trapped if they can only work out in a gym or their home.

Suggested Virgo Exercises: Football, Hockey, Long Walks, Yoga

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libras are balanced peopled, and they have a fondness for the finer things in life. Therefore, they may choose the more aesthetically-appealing health club over the down-and-dirty, “get ‘er done” no-frills gym.

Suggested Libra Exercises: Anything Social, Pilates

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

What a determined sign! The Scorpio likes to choose activities that leave him or her feeling the burn. In fact, Scorpios may become so intense in the club that they need time alone after any kind of workout to emotionally cool down.

Suggested Scorpio Exercises: Martial Arts, Triathlons, Distance Running, Pushups

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

The Sag workout enthusiast likes to stay moving. Because this sign of the zodiac governs the buttocks and hips, Sagittarians often find themselves gaining weight there. That’s why they need to build muscle in those regions where fat tends to settle.

Suggested Sagittarius Exercises: CrossFit, Skiing

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

The figure associated with Capricorn is the mountain goat; hence, these exercisers tend to be sure-footed and able to go the extra mile. They aren’t in it for instant gratification, either. Instead, they see that the little things add up in the end.

Suggested Capricorn Exercises: Rock Climbing, Cycling

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius gym-goers are the ones that gravitate toward new or unusual fitness activities. If there’s a class in medieval dancing, they’ll be the first ones to sign up! They love variety, and they don’t like to be bogged down by a constant regimen.

Suggested Aquarius Exercises: Distance Running, Swimming, Surfing

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Another water sign, Pisces people may want to avoid any kind of exercises that will overly strain them, especially in the area of the feet. Their immune systems can also be compromised easily, so they need to know when to rest.

Suggested Pisces Exercises: Surfing, Dancing, Aerobics, Scuba Diving

Of course, no matter what the stars say, there’s no excuse for sitting around and doing nothing!

Get out there and try a new activity. There’s really no time like today.

Hi 530 family! Due to insurance policies and a recent change in our class structure, we will no longer be open for training between 11-3:30. You may continue to come during any regular class hours and use equipment for "open gym" use where approved for space by the trainer but we will be closed between the morning and afternoon/evening classes effective immediately. Thanks for understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience!

"My journey with my weight was not over when the show ended. It proved impossible to maintain those habits once I returned home to a job and a social life. Throw in a pregnancy and I was almost exactly right back where I’d started — where I swore I’d never be again. Last year, I found CrossFit Vector and my coach, Aaron Martin and I fell in love with working out. More importantly, I fell in love with my body, imperfect as it was, as much as I resented it. I began to value it for what it could do, rather than what it couldn’t, and, for the first time in my adult life, post-Biggest Loser, I started losing weight. Not network-TV-quickly, by any means, but sustainably."
