A Fitness Routine For Every Personality

Filed under: YogaMental HealthAdvice

personality based fitness routines

Is one of your New Years' resolutions to get into shape? Probably.

Will you follow through with it? According to researchers, you'll be much more likely if you stick to a routine that fits your personality.

Here are some major personality types, and the workout routines that work well for them:

Conscientious People - Choose a regular exercise routine where you'll have complete control, i.e. solo activities such as weightlifting or using a treadmill

Impulsive People - Write down your workout plan in detail, give yourself short-term goals instead of long-term ones, and focus on activities that "give you a buzz or high" such as sprinting

Extroverts And Agreeable People - Choose a routine where you'll interact with others, i.e. group classes or team sports (as long as they aren't TOO competitive or aggressive)

Neurotic People - Choose routines that will calm you down and help you relax, i.e. yoga

People Who Exhibit "Openness to Experience" - If you crave adventure and excitement then you're probably not a jedi, try a routine that involves outdoor exercise, i.e. running, cycling, or walking

Figure out which personality type you are and give a personality-based routine a try!

And for the neurotic folks out there - we highly recommend you try some yoga! You'll thank us later.
