I am a team player which I would go along with but I am also spontaneous because i do not like schedules. I have one all day long with the girls so exercising is not something that I would want a strict schedule with.

Definitely self-motivator (6 points) and everything about it is true- especially getting bored of the same activities and needing to find new stuff!! That is one reason I'm glad I found sparkpeople... gives me great ideas to change things up a bit!

By score--I'm a self-motivator. Which is true--but I would also add I'm a spontaneous self-motivator as schedules bore me. Flexibility is a strong point.

Also a self motivator, mostly by necessity given the questions I answered. With, thank G-d, 3 two-year olds I have to exercise on the fly and it's usually by myself during their naptime or maybe with them in their stroller.

I am a team player. I guess that this is true. I love to be around people, because they motivate me to be active. I am so close to family and the few friend that I have. I will have to think about joining an exercise class.

I'm a team player! I love to go to the gym and meet new people. I hate to lift weights but doing the body pump class keeps me going and I actually look forward to going.

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.

When we wake up in the morning we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase those dreams. Choice is yours!

Grade your self based on these questions to see...

1. When I think about physical activity, I:
a. can't wait to put on my walking shoes
b. really want to exercise but need a push
c. dread the idea of moving a muscle, but am happy once I get moving

2. When I am physically active, I enjoy exercising:
a. by myself at my own pace
b. with a team or group
c. with one or two buddies

3. I exercise because:
a. I want to stay in shape, slim down, or improve my health
b. I want to see my friends and catch up on the latest news
c. the weather is nice or I just feel like it

4. When I take part in a physical activity, I usually:
a. plan the event ahead of time
b. participate when someone else has set up the activity or attend a class
c. pull it together quickly and do something active when the mood strikes

5. Others see me as:
a. a leader
b. a team player
c. someone who goes along with a good idea

6. I enjoy physical activities that are:
a. set by my own routine
b. set by a professional, teacher, or group
c. spontaneous

For every answer, give yourself:
A = 1 point
B = 2 points
C = 3 points

If you scored ...
6-9 points: you are a self-motivator
10-14 points: you are a team player
15-18 points: you are spontaneous

Self-Motivator
You like structure and organization. Creating and sticking to your own exercise plan is relatively easy, but you may find yourself losing interest in your usual routine. Try adding a few new activities such as biking, rowing, gardening, or hiking. Or try alternating your favorite workouts such as walking, swimming, and weightlifting on different days of the week.

Team Player
To you, exercise is a way to socialize and stay connected to friends and family Group activities and classes are a natural selection for you. Sign up for an exercise class; put together a group of friends for walking; or join a team sport or sports league such as bowling, softball, or doubles tennis.

Spontaneous
You love freedom and loathe conforming to rigid rules. Things that get you moving might include a call from friends who need a fourth player for a round of golf, a hike in the woods to enjoy a beautiful fall day, or a walk to the store when you are out of milk. These activities are great, but make sure you're doing something active on most days.
