If You're An Aries, Do This Workout Routine

Aries is the cardinal sign that starts the zodiac wheel. Which is fitting, because if you're an Aries, you're likely a natural born leader who is highly motivated and prefers a more direct approach. We could rave on and on about an Aries' natural ability to lead others. But we do want to point out that their explosive temperament and individualistic tendencies might sometimes get in the way (via Allure). 

Getting into a regular exercise routine is a great way to take care of yourself, physically and mentally. When it comes to physical activity, however, most people tend to have a preference. Running for miles may appeal to one person, while someone else groans at the very thought. The good news is, there are many different workout routines that are beneficial. Find ones you like best, and you're on your way to a healthy lifestyle.

If you're an Aries and looking for a workout routine that perfectly suits your highly motivated and oftentimes stubborn self, try the ones below.

Aries will likely love Capoeira

You may love watching old Bruce Lee movies or maybe "The Karate Kid" is a favorite. But instead of just watching the actors' powerful moves, get into the fighting stance and try out the martial arts routine Capoeira. This workout "combines elements of fight, acrobatics, music, and dance in a very elegant and magnetic way," says celebrity trainer Dustin Anderson (via Well + Good).

"Aries is ruled by Mars, so they're highly energized and aggressive, which is why a martial arts–based workout would be perfect for them," adds astrologer Kyle Thomas (via Well + Good).

Not interested in Bruce Lee or taking up martial arts? That's fine. There are other opportunities to let your star sign collaborate with your exercise goals. Really, any strenuous activity that has you wanting to be the best and burn off your excess energy would be a great choice. Try rollerblading, boxing, or wind surfing. If you're looking to be a part of a team and socialize during your workouts, then try out some team sports like football, basketball, or softball (via Astrology Zone).

Your high motivation and leadership skills should take you far in life. So why not lean into your Aries-like traits to find a workout that is best suited to help you meet your goals?
