    gold: just the facts

    Traditional and conservative in their approach to exercise, Golds avoid trendy fitness fads. With a comfort and reverence for tradition, Golds seek a balanced life, aiming not to over-do. Golds prefer structure and routine, valuing experience, safety, proven methods and information from experts. They’re proud of what they do, and results are what they’re after.

    Motivation, Approach, and Focus

    Their approach and choices are typically rooted in information from medical or fitness professionals, the media, or advice from trusted friends or people they admire. Golds consult authoritative resources for information, gravitating toward exercise based on proven methods, tested and trusted. After all, results are what they’re after. To achieve their goals, Golds prefer keeping their exercise plans plain, simple, and easy to execute.
    Golds typically decide in advance what they are going to do, and how they are going to measure a workout—perhaps based on time or distance. With their commonsense approach, Golds are careful not to over-do, stopping if they experience pain or discomfort. Safety is a priority and no aspect of the exercise’s benefit will get their attention unless they’re content that the safety aspect has been covered.
    Golds are highly sensitized to their bodies. Correct form and proper technique are essential for results and to avoid injury. When learning something new, Golds prefer the step-by- step approach. For instance, in learning a free weight routine, Golds prefer to learn the proper technique for developing one muscle group to their satisfaction before going on to the next. Once a technique is locked into their memory, they are ready to move on to the next, but not until then.
    Environment and Personal Connections

    Golds are comfortable with predictable environments where they know what to expect and what’s expected. Golds carefully take note of the environment and appreciate a fitness center that is bright, clean, organized and safe. They like a place for everything and everything in its place. Disarray can distract them from exercise. Too many things to pay attention to creates discomfort.
    Friendly and outgoing, Golds are curious about how others do things. They easily connect with people and enjoy interacting with others at the gym, as long as the interaction is compatible with getting the job of exercise done. Proud of what they do, many enjoy sharing their success and exercise accomplishments with others. Golds enjoy mixing a bit of social interaction into their exercise routine and want an upbeat environment—they nevertheless make the purpose of the activity clear.
    Gold Efficients (ESTJ)

    Gold Efficients seek a structured program with concrete progress reports that document their accomplishments and the goals they are achieving.

    Gold Harmony (ESFJ)

    Gold Harmonies enjoy connecting with people on a personal level. Recognition and praise for a job well done is particularly motivating to Gold Harmonies.

    Motivation, Approach, and Focus
    Energized by new ideas and possibilities, Silvers eagerly embrace novel concepts and respond to a world of opportunity. Silvers find little that doesn’t interest them. They’re quick to see connections and build on ideas. Silvers enjoy being with people who share their enthusiasm and can contribute to their projects and activities. With so many interests, exercise for its own sake can be boring. It’s best when taken out of the context of pure exercise and wrapped in the guise of something else, such as a challenge, adventure, and exploration, or spending time with people.

    Active Silvers fall into one of two categories: Make it Central or Keep it Simple. When physical activity takes on a central role, there are likely several layers of experience and achievement to disguise pure exercise. For example, training for a marathon with a group, skiing or biking with friends, walking meetings with colleagues, or competitive ballroom dancing. In each case there are multiple enticements and hooks; they will get their exercise along the way. With their Intuitive natures, Silvers can naturally make the mind/body/soul connection and might be attracted to exercise with that as a component.

    For Make it Central Silvers with active friends and family, physical activity can become an operating principle in their lives. With so much of life organized around physical activity, positive momentum overpowers physical resistance. They approach their physically active lifestyle with enthusiasm and gusto, and rarely miss a day of exercise, even when it’s piled on top of an already full schedule

    For Silvers who do not make exercise central in their lives, they find exercise success by keeping activities uncomplicated, unremarkable, and easy to accomplish. The Keep it Simple Silvers might even become rigid in their program, in contrast to the flexible approach they apply to the rest of their lives, convinced that if they deviate from their routine—or try to improve on it and change it—it might fall apart. For Silvers whose interests often pull them in so many directions, many report that regular exercise makes them feel more balanced and in control of their lives.

    Environment and Interpersonal Connections
    Convenience is a must. The more decision points Silvers must navigate, the less appealing exercise becomes. Whether they belong to a fitness center, practice yoga, Tai Chi, or run in the park, Silvers don’t want to spend too much time in transition. Their schedules are tight and time is valuable. Convenience, after all, relates to flow—moving from one activity to another with little effort—much the way Silvers connect ideas.

    A stimulating environment, connecting with people around training programs—possibly taking the lead in setting up a training schedule keeps interest high. With their busy lives, many Silvers also enjoy exercising alone, finding satisfaction and balance in reflection. A walk at night, a run along the bike path, or solo time at the gym provides an opportunity to be with their thoughts and clear their busy minds.

    Silver Efficients (ENTP)
    Silver Efficients seek a trainer who understands how the body works and is competent at explaining it. They will have challenging questions for a trainer to respond to; their relationship is professional.

    Silver Harmonies (ENFP)
    Silver Harmonies seek trainers who they enjoy spending time with. Their relationship with their trainer tends to be personal.

    White Harmony. Yeah, when it comes down to core nature (NOT enneagram fixation, family habits or poor health), I'm not a P at all.
