What’s Your Fitness Sign?
We asked top astrologers to chart your workout destiny.
FIRE SIGNS (Aries, Sagittarius, Leo): These women tend to be aggressive, energetic go-getters; “Fire signs need to get their faces red,” says Gahl Sasson, who teaches an astrology yoga class at L.A.’s Golden Bridge. Try Spinning. Celebrity mascot: Jennifer Garner
AIR SIGNS: (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Eager to try new things, air signs need variety in their routine to prevent boredom. They should cross train. Mix the treadmill, elliptical machine and stairstepper, Sasson suggests. Celebrity mascot: Angelina Jolie
EARTH SIGNS (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) Because earth signs are peaceful, practical and grounded, they’ll feel most inspired outdoors, says psychic Kimberly Berg of Los Angeles. Opt for swimming, skiing and hiking. Celebrity mascot: Renee Zellweger
WATER SIGNS (Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces): Water women can temper their all-or-nothing approach to exercise by embracing an activity that lulls them into a peaceful, meditative state. Give yoga or tai chi a go, Berg advises. Celebrity mascot: Cindy Crawford
