Maybe you’ve seen some buzz lately about enneagrams but what exactly is it and how can it help you in reaching your health and fitness goals?
The Enneagram is a personality tool that breaks down the patterns of human behavior into nine distinct types. Each type has a specific motivation, along with basic fears, levels of health and so forth. It can be particularly helpful in showing us our blindspots and how we cope with our emotions and life in general. In our culture we are seeing a desire for more self-awareness. The Enneagram is a great way for us to uncover more about ourselves and what makes us tick from the inside out.
Many people fail at their health and fitness goals because they don’t have a deep understanding of their personality type and how to leverage that to their advantage. For example, a person who gets easily bored with routine and repetition needs an exercise program with lots of variety. A person who thrives on being outdoors in nature needs to find ways to exercise outside v. trying to workout in a basement.
The enneagram has become a very popular personality test over the last few years. Knowing your enneagram and how it affects your exercise style can help you understand how you can achieve your fitness goals on your journey to a healthier you.
