Your Personality Type: SPONTANEOUS

Life is a game, and your strategy is always changing. While you aren't much for rules, you'll follow them if they're simple and help you have fun.

Your Exercise Rx:
Short but sweet activities that allow you to accumulate exercise time throughout the day may be a good choice, says Ross Andersen, PhD, director of exercise science at Johns Hopkins' weight management center. Spontaneous types also tend to do well with games.

Best Choices

  • Short walks throughout the day
  • Taking the stairs
  • Bike rides
  • Hiking
  • Tennis
  • Racquetball
  • Squash
  • Basketball
  • Frisbee

Leisure Activities
Your first priority is to work regular exercise into your week. But also think about using your leisure time to burn off a few extra calories. Here are some extracurricular activities for your personality type:
  • skiing
  • playing in a softball or volleyball league

Different personalities don't just take to different activities; they have to contend with different obstacles too. Here's what you might find in your path, as well as ways to get around it:
Your biggest enemy is an idle mind. Even short workouts can turn torturous if there's nothing to occupy your brain.
Solution: Watch TV or listen to music while exercising, or grab a workout partner to talk with.
