Whether it’s the first of January and you’re making New Year’s resolutions, it’s springtime and you want to get ready for swimsuit season, or you’re simply realizing that the time has come to gain control of your fitness and overall wellbeing, now is the perfect time for launching a brand-new health regimen. But anyone who has tried to lose weight, get fit or otherwise improve their health knows that willpower alone won’t cut it. The straightest, quickest path to success includes information — specifically, the knowledge and insight you can gain from studying your Zodiac sign. Based on your sign, you possess unique strengths to harness and challenges to avoid as you start your journey toward a new, healthier and better you. Read on to find out all about how to use the wisdom of astrology to get and stay fit and healthy.
Energetic Aries possesses two great gifts to help you develop your health and fitness: your innate enthusiasm and your competitive nature. You’re at your best when engaged in fast-paced, intense physical exercise — think kickboxing, running, races and team sports. But avoid getting stuck in a rut; it’s important for Aries to switch things up often, so your interest stays at its peak. In fact, activities like CrossFit and circuit training are right up your alley; alternating quick, explosive bursts of resistance training with aerobic exercise, they’re anything but routine. As for diet and weight-loss, try setting incremental goals — working first toward losing five pounds, then ten, or dropping one clothing size and then another — to motivate you to keep pushing toward that next objective. Competitive by nature, you might enjoy challenging friends, coworkers or family members to join you in a diet pool, a 5K race, or some other competition.
