Make 'Em Sweat: 10 Reasons Why Leos Make The Best Workout Buddies

Whether it's school, work or just life in general, sometimes it can be really challenging to motivate yourself to work out.

Passionate and active Leos can be a valuable resource for you.

Whether it's simply keeping up with your energetic Leo pal on a bike, or having her supportive shoulder to lean on during a grueling trail run, a Leo will make the greatest workout buddy.

Never one to give in, a headstrong Leo will make sure you show up and give your workout your very best.

1. Leos are energetic.

Much like their ruler, the sun, Leos are a boundless source of energy. They love spreading their positive vibes around like sunshine on a beautiful day.

When you are dragging ass after a long day at work, your Leo pal knows just what to say to brighten your day and motivate you to get moving.

2. Leos are forthright.

Known for being one of the most straightforward signs in the zodiac, Leos are not afraid to tell it like it is.

Your Leo bud will let you know if you're slacking on your planks, or need to step it up a notch on the treadmill.

3. Leos are devoted.

No one can out-loyal a Leo. You can trust your Leo buddy to always be there for you.

She is the one you can count on to drag you to barre class, even when you know you'd rather be at the bar.

4. Leos are headstrong.

Leos are apt to be rather impulsive, but this actually works in your favor as a workout buddy.

Perhaps, you've been eyeballing that Groupon to your local CrossFit gym, but have been a bit intimidated to try it out? Your Leo girl will absolutely insist you snag it!

A Leo's knee-jerk reaction is always to just go for it! Her motto is, "Do first, think later."

5. Leos love a good show.

Nervous to get into a headstand at yoga? Your Leo pal can be a bit of a show-off on occasion, so she just loves all those fancy, cool-looking inverted poses.

Instead of letting this get on your nerves, flip your perspective (literally and figuratively) by allowing her to inspire you to try something new and exciting.

6. Leos are determined.

The conviction of a Leo can be fairly intense at times. Look no further than your Leo buddy to help you reach your goals, whether it's a 5k, a marathon, or simply just walking more often.

Leos are a very disciplined bunch, and will aim for their goals with a fiery intensity, which is exactly why you want them by your side.

7. Leos are super encouraging.

Do you tend to start a new workout routine with gusto, then trail off? Leos are known to be one of the most supportive signs and will be your biggest cheerleader.

Stuck in a rut with your workout routine? Your steadfast Leo friend will come to your rescue and encourage you to push harder, dig deeper or just simply be the best version of yourself you possibly can be.

8. Leos are fearless.

A Leo is the definition of confident. Who better to accompany you to that new SoulCycle class than your mega-bold Leo bestie?

9. Leos are passionate.

Known for their spirited personalities, Leos are the ones who have already researched every last detail of the latest and greatest new workout trend.

A Leo will get all the routines and schedules memorized before you even step into class.

10. Leos love a good time.

Perhaps, most importantly, Leos are social butterflies and know how to have fun.

A Leo will never lead you astray to a boring, passionless workout sesh. And you know she's down for drinks (or green smoothies!) once you're done!
