What your workout says about you

Taking a personality test may help you find an exercise routine you can stick with, suggests a report in The Physician and Sportsmedicine. After conducting personality assessments on 700 fitness center members, researchers found those who liked aerobics were the most sociable; those who liked yoga scored high in mental focus; and those who liked karate scored the highest in aggressiveness and risk taking. If you have trouble sticking with an exercise program, try an activity that may better suit your personality.
