My fitness color

Saturday, May 04, 2013

So, the challenge this week for sunny girls was to investigate your fitness styles. After taking the test at the8colors.com I have found out what I kind of already knew which was I am gold which means efficiently. I have to plan everything and stick to it with everything in my life or it doesn't get done-so now I know to always include my workout in my daily schedule! I felt the gold analysis for me is very true and their suggestion below that we get attached to certain classes is right on because the only class I ever really enjoy is Jazzercise because that's what I group up around with my mom. Check out the test, it was fun!

A little more about golds from the site:

Gold Standard – Just the Facts
Golds (ESTJ, ESFJ) are traditional and conservative. They trust the suggestions of authority figures such as doctors, fitness instructors or personal trainers. They rely on proven methods to achieve the results they desire. “It’s especially important to Golds to work out in a friendly, positive environment,” Brue says. They get attached to certain classes and teachers they like and may quit a class if their favorite instructor leaves. Golds also value precision. They want to be sure that they’re executing correct form at all times.

Motivation: Golds will benefit from setting clear, specific goals and from having good, accessible fitness role models. They should make a point of telling others about their results and successes. “Be careful in large group classes,” Brue warns, “since your desire to interact with others might detract from your workout.”

Suggested Activities: Swimming, Pilates, yoga, tennis, one-on-one personal training, hiking (with a goal, such as reaching all the highest peaks in your region).
