You use exercise to relax and de-stress. You know the importance of a healthy work/ life / workout balance. Your relaxed approach to training means that you really enjoy your workouts. Keep up the good work! Try yoga, hiking or swimming.
When it comes to fitness, you go hard or go home. You want to see results! You’re not afraid to work hard but you get bored easily and sometimes lack motivation. Signing up to challenges or fun runs could be good to keep you on track. Try HIIT training, boxing classes or obstacle courses.
You love it all! You have tones of energy and you motivate others to join you and get active too. You like group exercise classes and you know everyones name at the gym. Try spinning, dance cardio and Voga (a mixture of Yoga and Vogueing, yes this actually exists!)
