Find Your Fitness Personality: Which Fitness Classes are Right for You?

Are you bored with your exercise routine? Does heading to the gym feel like more trouble than it’s worth? If so, the problem may be easier to solve than you think. 

Personality differences (such as being introverted or extroverted) influence the way we interact with people, activities, and social situations in almost every area of life - including exercise. If your exercise routine is at odds with your natural personality type, you’ll have trouble feeling motivated to lace up your gym shoes. 

The good news is that you have options! If you aren’t happy with what you are currently doing, try changing up your routine. At Fitness 19, our group classes are designed to meet a wide variety of goals and personality preferences. Here’s how you can find the perfect class for you.

Introverts

The primary difference between introverts and extroverts is one of energy. For introverts, social interaction consumes huge amounts of energy, which can leave you feeling exhausted after a social function or activity. Introverts can still find motivation from exercising in a group, however, as long as there is not a lot of talking or interaction required. Look for classes that focus on individual achievement and mindfulness rather than group dynamics. Introverts will typically do well with classes like these:

Yoga - Increase mindfulness, build strength, and improve flexibility. Yoga helps you connect your mind and body by centering you in the present.

Extroverts

In contrast with introverts, extroverts gain energy during social situations. Rather than feeling drained after a social activity, extroverts feel invigorated. The more group interaction, the better. If you are an extrovert, look for classes that focus on group dynamics or friendly competition. Extroverts tend to enjoy classes like:

If you are a playful personality, you’ll want an exercise option that brings fun into your workout. Look for classes that incorporate variety and community, with plenty of interaction.
