Healthy Fitness Horoscopes

Your Fitness Future is in the Stars!

Page 1 of 4
When it comes to sticking with a consistent exercise program, you might not reach your goals if you're following a plan that goes against your true nature and personality. For example, if you're outgoing, solo workouts might not hold your interest, while a spontaneous personality won't jibe with scheduled fitness classes. If you're struggling to make exercise a habit, reach for the stars! Check out these healthy fitness horoscopes that will give you pointers based on your astrological sign.

Aries: March 21 – April 20
As an Aries, you are as the one who gets things started. Want to take a kickboxing class but your gym doesn’t offer one? Take the initiative and talk to the owner of the club. Or better yet, get the training and become an instructor yourself. You love to get things moving, and there’s no better way of making sure you get what you want than by doing it yourself. As a fire sign, you want inspiring and imaginative ideas. You tend to get bored easily, so mix up your fitness routine every few weeks to keep it fresh. Trying new activities will keep you interested, so when Pilates gets tiresome, switch to one-on-one at the local basketball court or start swimming. You'll keep your muscles guessing and see serious results!

Taurus: April 21 – May 21
The physical, sensual side of life is very important to the Taurus. You love to feel connected to your body and enjoy the perks in life, including good food and good wine. Be careful not to enjoy them too much, or you might have to spend more time in the gym than you’d like. After a hard workout, reward yourself with a massage or a soak in a hot tub. You love the feel of fine fabrics, so stay away from polyester or other scratchy materials. You might have the reputation for being stubborn, but that's a good thing—you won’t give up until you reach your fitness goals. It might take you a while to find an exercise routine that you like, but when you do, don’t mess with it as long as it works for you. You are an earth sign, so don’t force yourself to work out at a gym if you’d rather be outside. Go hiking, swimming or skating, and connect with the great outdoors as much as possible.

  • Thanks for the article. - 10/26/2013 11:03:57 AM
    I say this literally & with all respect ~
    LIGHTEN UP !!! - 10/17/2013 12:28:26 PM
  • Whether you believe it or not, it's worth 3 Sparkpoints. Click it and forget it. :) Problem solved. - 3/15/2013 8:22:25 PM
  • AAAAAAgggggghhhhh

    Horrorscopes ar just about the stupidest thing to post on a site that purports to have a common sense scientific approach to fitness and weight losss. I cannot think of one thing in the maistream that is less scienific than horrorscopes.

    We must kill these stupid things once and for all.

    And anyone who comments one their teaits based on the date of their birth is ... I'm going to say it ... STOO-PID and they need a podcast that tells them to breathe in/breath out.

    Sorry, I'm going all Keith Olberman on this and foaming at the mouth.

    God this is a stupid article! - 2/24/2012 9:13:28 AM
  • After reading some of the comments I went back and re-read the preamble to the article - doesn't say anywhere the opinions are scientific fact, researched and/or peer-reviewed (as is the case with some articles). So absent all of that - decide for yourself whether any of it applies and dismiss any that doesn't. In terms of whether the article is sparkpeople- worthy, if it helps one person, it is worthy. For me, one of the most powerful (meaning helpful/inspirati
    onal) aspects of SP is the diversity of information. I have found strategies that have worked even though they were counter-intuitive to my way of thinking, inspiration and determination from unlikely sources, so I say - bring it all on - I have the free will to choose what I read and what I act on. Just my opinion. - 10/14/2011 9:01:44 AM
  • I'm torn on this one. Mine was dead on (Scorpio). But I am questioning why it is on Sparkpeople too. Yeah it's fun or cute but it is hokey and has little value.. I feel Spark is almost insulting us with this one.....BUT I did read it. So, what is that saying? - 8/13/2011 10:54:26 AM
  • I'm in the "relax and have fun" faction here. If you don't like the topic of an article, don't read it. I skip things all the time. That's what I love about SparkPeople. I've learned new things, been exposed to things I wouldn't otherwise be exposed to, received new ideas from all sorts of surprising sources and, last but not least, had FUN along the way!

  • I'm with the "Sheesh, why is this crap on SparkPeople?" faction. I come to SP for useful information, not three-thousand-ye
    ar-old nonsense that doesn't even take celestial basics like precession into account. And I'm saying that as a practicing witch as well as a scientist.

    And I don't see what's fun about bad advice based on bad science and worse magic.

    Fun - Mine was right on. I love when we can just chill and take take everything so seriously. - 7/22/2011 9:38:19 PM
    Lighten up folks ! I don't think Spark is claiming this to be the latest scientific research. It's just for fun. We remember fun don't we? :-) - 7/22/2011 7:32:04 PM
  • Relax, people. Okay, this one's more fun than fact, but the great thing about this site is that it acknowledges we're all different. Maybe it will give someone an idea they can try. Some Geminis may not like -- or be able to do -- yoga. And some of us may prefer water aerobics and not have access to a pool. It's just a new way of thinking about what exercise suits you. - 7/22/2011 6:01:29 PM
  • Really? Horoscopes now???? I have always loved how Spark People relies on legitimate research to back up its healthy lifestyle initiatives. This makes me really think twice about everything I'm reading here and will read in the future. - 7/22/2011 12:02:44 PM
  • OMG!!! I'm a Scorpio and that fit me exactly!!! - 7/21/2011 8:58:42 PM
    I thought that this was cute, and it described me dead on!! I have always said I must be part fish!! I love the water, any water!! My favorite place to vacation is at the Beach or on Cruise, and my favorite form of exercising is my Water Aerobics!!! Oh by the way, I am a Cancer... - 7/21/2011 8:41:35 PM
  • Enjoyed the article as I have never seen one that focused on the astrological signs before! However, my sign (Aries) described me as there are times that I get bored and need to switch things up to avoid boredom and keep progressing! - 7/21/2011 8:06:06 PM
