Gemini: hands, arms, lungs, and nervous system
The typical Gemini (if that’s even possible) is on the go all the time, so usually, your everyday lifestyle helps keep you fit. You need to avoid boredom and routine—you are unlikely to stick with anything that isn’t mentally stimulating. Incorporating music and social activity into your workout also keeps you motivated. Avoid shallow breathing and don’t overdo it as your lungs are quite sensitive. Group exercises/sports and gymnastics are good choices. Also, being the twins, you enjoy a sport with a partner. If you can find the time (and the attention span) to do some yoga, you will keep colds and the flu at bay.
Cancer: breasts, breastbone, stomach, digestive system, and womb
The commitment type, Cancerians are able to find one sport/exercise and commit to it for the long haul, while pushing yourself to the limit. Water sports and being part of a team also appeal to you. Does this sound like a famous Olympian you know? Sure enough, Michael Phelps is a Cancer. Since you are crab-like, lateral movements come easy to you, so side leg lifts and bending work well. Walking the dog is good; focusing on your abs is also a good idea since Cancerians tend to gain weight around the midsection.
Leo: heart, upper back, spine, and the aorta
Leo governs sports and recreation, so sports and fitness come naturally to you. Regular exercise is good for your circulation, but avoid overdoing it, especially in your upper back. Exercising in public appeals greatly to you; just avoid watching yourself in front of the mirror too much. Since you are a born leader, taking a class will probably bore you since someone else is in charge; you often excel at being your own personal trainer. Leos (especially men) are prone to heart attacks, so walking or jogging in the fresh air strengthens your circulatory system, though you may get out of breath quickly. Activities that work are Pilates, couples dancing, and any activity where you can show off. Remember to stretch—think about a lion’s deep stretches.
Virgo: sympathetic nervous system, spleen, and digestive system
In general, Virgos like to stay fit; however, your interest probably comes more from a desire to be clean and healthy than vanity. With seemingly endless energy, you respond well to full body participation, so sports like cycling, football, and hockey hold your interest. You love to be outside, so keep that in mind; a smelly gym is not a good idea. Set realistic goals to avoid disappointment, which will interfere with your workout. You are usually very strong, so endurance sports also work well for you.
