Mostly As: The Organiser
You’re normally on top of things and always busy. You like to set yourself challenges and make plans you can stick to. Try joining your local gym so you can plan classes or sessions into your diary, or do the same with online fitness videos, like those on the Fitness Hub.
Mostly Bs: The Socialiser
You’re sociable by nature and love going out with friends as often as possible – which means exercising alone can be boring. Try a team sport, such as netball, or rope a group of friends into signing up to a Color Run or obstacle course race with you. Bootcamp-style workouts are also a sociable way to work out and meet new people.
Mostly Cs: The Excuse-maker
You tend to be laid-back and love to relax whenever you get a chance. You want to exercise, but find it hard to take that first step. To discover your groove, see whether a local gym or class offers trial sessions – so you can test out a few different workouts to find one you love. Or, give yourself incentives to exercise, such as setting weekly activity targets and treating yourself when you reach them.
