(57-62) Adventurous Babe

Go Girl! Whether mountain climbing, skiing, white water rafting etc., you never want to be bored while you exercise. Your challenge is to make sure your exercise routine isn’t…er…routine. Look at outdoor fitness centers (ie parks) that you can use to skate, bike or hike at. Also consider exploring classes or seminars in extreme sports such as mountain biking, climbing, skating, or whatever else tickles your fancy. Just don’t get hurt.

(51-56) Athlete

You enjoy organized sports. So join a team! Whether it be basketball, volleyball, track, softball, rugby, etc. Find a sport that you enjoy and stick to it.

(45-50) Friendly Exerciser

You don’t seem to like to exercise alone. Your exercise solution is to find a friend or two and together make a goal to exercise together regularly. Go for it!

(39-44) Class Act

Studious girl, you need to incorporate learning into your exercise routine. Whether it be trying a dance class, an aerobics class, a gymnastics class, check out a class that interests you and you will probably be more likely to stick out your exercise routine.

(33-38) Gym Girl

You love gyms and machines, weights, whatever you name it. Most schools now have the luxury of having small gyms. If that describes you, count yourself blessed. (My school didn’t until my junior year). Even if your school does have a gym however, you might also want to think about joining a gym in your neighborhood as well. (FYI: This is a great thing to do with your mother and/or a friend). Curves and Victory Lady Fitness are two fitness centers that I like.

(27-32) Solo spirit

You like to exercise by yourself. You hate gyms and people watching you while you work out. Consider solo forms of exercise, such as running or walking or using an aerobics video or even simply dancing around your room.

(26 or below) Don’t wanna exercise…r

Um….you don’t seem to want to exercise at all. Don’t worry, I’m like that too (Don’t tell anyone) What works for me is choosing the most minimum amount of exercise (I know that’s a dirty word…I’m sorry) possible. This might mean taking a long walk at the park…or the mall. I also like to dance around my room. Also, making small changes, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator can greatly elevate (pun intended) your physical fitness. So go for it girl!
