The 6 Most Athletic Zodiac Signs, According To Astrology

Do you consider yourself athletic? Being athletic doesn’t mean you work out all the time, but when you’re athletic, you’re good at sports and constantly train to get even better.

In astrology, in particular, the athletic zodiac signs don’t play sports or lift weights so they look good; rather, it's because they want to manage their stress, be as healthy as possible, and it's how they have fun. Athletic people enjoy moving their body, and when they don’t get enough exercise, they feel "off."

You don’t have to be a professional athlete, you just have to live a certain way. When you're athletic, you’re focused, determined, and you take care of yourself. You make sure to eat right so your body has the fuel it needs, and you drink enough water and get enough sleep.

You’re good at pushing yourself and tend not to give up when things get difficult. You thrive on competition, but are also the type of person who's more interested in getting better than perfection. For athletic people, they enjoy competing with people who are better and more skilled so they improve.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are extremely athletic. They love exercising, training, and moving their body. They try new things and are constantly switching up their workout. It's not unlikely for an Aries to be in training because they're competitive and want to excel at everything they do.

For them, there's no such thing as limitations. If they're told they can't do something, it makes them more determined to do it and slay at it.

2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are energetic and like the attention of succeeding at anything, but especially sports. Leos are the ultimate team player, and being on a team keeps them focused on succeeding.

A Leo would never want to let down their teammates. They tend to inspire others but have the attitude that setbacks will happen, but defeat is a choice, so go back out there and put everything you've got into winning.

3. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are focused, and no matter how difficult something may appear to be, they will conquer it. It's not unlike Scorpio to engage in extreme sports like climbing Everest or doing a triathlon. They love to do things that scare other people, and they love to push their bodies to the breaking point.

Scorpios believe that not all pain is bad, and they love the feeling of being exhausted and having muscle aches after an intense workout. But they also know to listen to their body; they're not going to keep cycling if it's damaging their knee.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos exercise both their bodies and their minds because they know you can build one up and let the other stagnate. Virgos tend to learn everything they can about a new sport or workout technique, and then strive to become amazing at it.

However, Virgos don't limit themselves to traditional workouts; they're just as likely to do rock climbing, snowshoe walking, and swimming in the ocean. They also tend to pay a lot of care in regard to their diet. They need the proper fuel to keep them going, and they tend to have digestive problems if they don't eat right.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius individuals tend to be athletic in several ways — they may work out a lot at the gym, be on a sports team, or they'll do things like hiking, biking, and swimming while they're traveling. They combine exercise with seeing the wonders of the world.

They might not go to their local pool every day, but they've probably swam in caves, dived near waterfalls, or hiked in the rain forest. They have to be athletic so they can do and see everything.

6. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

When Capricorn puts their mind to it, they can do anything. If they want to be an Olympian skater, they're going to put the work in, train their butt off, and compete. They have the mindset that hard work now makes it easier later. They're used to pushing themselves and exceeding expectations.

The trouble is that Capricorn can become so engrossed in their work, they may put fitness on the bottom of their list. Though, they are good at fitting exercise in like taking the stairs at work or walking to a restaurant for a business meeting.
