Your Ideal Workout, Based on Your Star Sign
Your Star Sign is determined by the day and time you were born and is believed by some to affect your personality and emotions. Your star sign can tell you about your self-esteem, self-image, confidence, identity and even influence your life path. Does that mean that the way you workout and your gym persona is also pre-determined by your date of birth? Astrology is used for understanding yourself and others and is a language of symbols that offer detailed explanations of someone’s personality, likes, dislikes, natural talents and so on. It can also reveal our health and exercise preferences, so we’ve put together some information on the physical body and health recommendations for you to stay healthy based on your star sign.
