The Best Workout Class For Your Enneagram Number
Start writing a post

The enneagram is one of the most accurate personality tests in the world, and needless to say, I am obsessed with it. I can tell you the enneagram types of each Disney princess and the Disney movie you should watch. I can discuss college majors that go with each of the nine personality types, and I'd love to recommend an ideal date, too.

Does that make me an expert? FAR from it.

All my enneagram discussions are purely for enjoyment, and just maybe, you'll have a recommendation that matches your personality type perfectly! It's important to note, though, that every single person is individual and unique, and we all have multiple types in us that create that individuality between types. And that's the amazing thing about the enneagram — your primary type is scarily accurate, but some of the traits of other types may closely apply to you, too — especially if you have a wing!

I'll just get into workouts because when's a better time to turn over a new leaf and get on that fitness grind than the turn of a new season? Now all you have to do is find out your enneagram type and try out one of these nine fun workouts so you can end 2020 STRONG!

Type 1 — Barre

Barre would be an ideal workout for a Type 1 because of the perfectionism running through a Type 1's veins. Barre workouts require a lot of focus and meticulousness to do right, and Type 1s are the perfect people to take on this challenge. They'll push themselves to follow the rules of the movements and follow them the right way to get in the best workout possible.

Type 2 — Rope Course

Rope courses are the new, trending team workout for coworkers and friends alike, and Type 2s would love the opportunity to participate in one of these classes with their friends, family, or coworkers. For Type 2s, it's the camaraderie of this workout class that would really make them feel good afterward. People will need encouragement to continue on, a helping hand to make it across that dreadful horizontal rope, and someone to cheer them on throughout the workout. Needless to say, Type 2s will be excited to provide all of that to their fellow classmates while conquering the challenges of the rope course.

Type 3 — Cycling

I'm pretty sure cycling classes were designed for Type 3s. They are high energy and extremely competitive. And the best part is, while you can have some friendly competition with the people around you, you're really competing with yourself! Type 3s can channel their ambition into this workout and reign in the feeling of accomplishment afterward!

Type 4 — Goat Yoga

Goat yoga is a new, and incredibly unique, type of workout class that millennials and Gen Z are ALL about, and it is perfect for Type 4s. Type 4s embrace their individuality and like unique and original past times, so they're sure to have a great time at goat yoga. Plus, yoga is a great way to calm the soul and make peace with the overwhelming emotions and thoughts that usually inhabit a Type 4's mind. And since goat yoga classes take place outside, Type 4s get to relish in the natural beauty they so admire.

Type 5 — Running

You can definitely join a local running club in the area, but a Type 5 would probably prefer to workout alone anyway. Running is a great workout option for Type 5s because they're able to observe and investigate the world around them as they blaze down trails and sidewalks. Running is also a great outlet for thoughts. Since Type 5s love to observe and analyze, running is a great way for them to process everything they are absorbing throughout the day.

Type 6 — Personal Training

Personal training is ideal for a Type 6 because it's something they can be loyal to and commit to. They will have set days and times to meet with their trainer, and they'll appreciate the one on one support they'll get from their trainer and the relationship they will form with them. It's also a workout that will make them feel safe — they trust that the trainer knows what they're doing and is experienced enough not to put them in harm's way at all.

Type 7 — Hiking

An adventure AND a workout in one? Sign every Type 7 up for a local hiking group/club! Type 7s would no doubt love the adventure of going on hikes — finding new trails and new destinations will be a new experience each week. Best of all, going with a hiking club ensures there's time for endless hours of socialization and laughs!

Type 8 — Cardio Kickboxing

Kickboxing classes are sweaty and challenging, but Type 8s would have a great time taking on this challenge! Type 8s are strong and powerful, and a kickboxing class would help them to hone in on those traits. It would also be a great outlet for them to let out all of their passionate and strong emotions and just feel free and in control of themselves.

Type 9 — Slow Flow Yoga

A slow flow yoga class would be great for a Type 9. Type 9s could focus on harnessing peace within themselves and in the atmosphere around them, which goes perfectly with their natural essence. Not to mention, yoga is a great workout, and if you want to spice it up, maybe try hot yoga!

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.


Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.


I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.


When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage.

In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
