Mostly A: The perfectionist
You thrive on competition and work best when you’re trying to beat the clock – or someone else. Try a new activity; cycling and swimming, for example, are low-impact alternatives to running. More important than what sport you choose is learning how to enjoy it. Work out at a less intense level than you normally would and focus on enjoying yourself.
Mostly B: The team player
Team sports are the ideal way for you to work out – football, rowing and netball are great ways for you to get fit. You don’t just play to win, so, for an extra incentive, why not start training for a 5k run, beginning with short distances and enjoying the journey as you increase the distance? Even better, persuade a friend to train with you.
Mostly C: The do-it-all
You have a busy lifestyle and any free time you have is spent helping out friends and family. You sometimes crave an hour to yourself, but you feel guilty saying no to other people and putting yourself first. Yoga and Pilates are perfect for you: a class will give you time each week to relax while you tone up and become more flexible and supple.
Mostly D: The exercise novice
You may find some aspects of fitness challenging; however, deep down, you want to find the motivation to get fit. To pep up long walks, download a new album, podcast or audiobook, or make fitness fun – get some friends together for a lighthearted game of tennis or toss a Frisbee around. You’ll be having such a good time, you’ll forget you’re exercising.
