We all say getting fit, getting healthy and losing weight are our New Year resolutions... but sometimes the same old workout is boring and doesn't motivate us. Why not switch it up with one of these new and popular fitness trends, so that next December 31st, you can ring in the New Year with one sexy bod!
Workout studios specializing in treadmill training will be expanding throughout 2018. Indoor group running has become popular over the past year too. It’s the new "it" workout and many classes make it much more fun and exciting than just running on a treadmill. Plus, it’s great for improving your running time!
More Recovery Efforts
People love their intense workouts but in 2018, people are letting their bodies recover too. Recovery is essential for your body and its muscles so you can be a better fit you. We will see an increase in people taking advantage of recovery options like yoga, foam rolling, therapy balls, core strengthening, stretching, full recovery days and more focus on a better night’s sleep.
More Digital Use
We love our technology, and now it’s our best friend when it comes to our health! Fitness apps are an awesome way to keep your routine organized, unique and they keep you on track. They can also provide inspiration, guidance or even coaching.
Body Weight Training
Expect to see more body weight training in classes and in personal training. According to an American College of Sports Medicine survey of more than 3,000 fitness professionals, body weight training is predicted to be the next big fitness trend.
High Intensity Interval Training
HIIT isn’t going anywhere in 2018. The workout alternates intense bursts of exercise with short recovery periods. Why? Because it’s super effective. Plus, which would you prefer: hours of tirelessly working out in the gym or doing a high intense 20-minute cardio session? Yeah, that’s what we thought!
