Mostly d’s: You are The Solo Athlete
You’re independent and competitive with yourself, and you have no problem following a strict, hardcore workout regimen. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a pro athlete in the making, you are likely a disciplined perfectionist with a high level of endurance and mental toughness. Because this personality type often has such a narrow focus on their sport or exercise of choice, “they can get too much of their identity consumed in their athletics,” Shinitzky explains. To avoid this, it’s important for them to work on the concept of balance, he adds, and learn to appreciate the positives from their other roles in life.
• Rock climbing: The quick movements require strength, stamina and agility, working everything from your arms and legs to your core.
• Marathon training: One of the most intense cardio workouts you can do, endurance running also taxes your lower body, particularly the hamstrings and calves.
