The Best Fitness Routines Fit Your Personality

Researchers have speculated that your exercise routine may be easier to stick to if it fits your personality.

According to Live Science:

"Decades of psychological research have boiled down human personality to five different components: conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism and openness to experience."

Here are their suggestions for an exercise routine based on the most dominant part of your personality.

Conscientious people like having a regular exercise routine, and may prefer solo activities such as weightlifting or using a treadmill.

Non-committal

Impulsive people need to take extra measures to help them stick to a routine, such as writing down the plan in detail.

Extroverts are most likely to enjoy group classes and team sports.
