Every year comes with its fitness trends. Some fads seem to last longer than others. Whatever your fitness goals, there are loads of activities to choose from. From group workouts to yoga. Here are some top trends to stay in shape in 2018.
- Wearable Tech
Fitness tracker, heart rate monitors, and pedometers are all the rage lately. The market for these products is booming, and showing no signs of slowing down.
- Bodyweight Training
You don’t need fancy equipment, a gym membership or a lot of space to do bodyweight workouts. You can modify bodyweight training to your comfort. And it’s a great way to ease into strength training.
- High-Intensity Interval Training
With HIIT you won’t spend a lot of time exercising. You’ll engage in short bursts of exercise at maximum, or near maximum heart rate. This means you’ll burn more calories in 20-30-minute sessions than you would is a longer workout.
- Personal Trainer
Working with a personal trainer can be a great way to get tailored guidance and accountability to reach your fitness goals.
- Strength Training
Women tend to shy away from strength training, but this is critical to keeping our bodies healthy and maintaining muscle mass. Strength training will not make you “huge” if you’re a woman. It will, however, increase your metabolism and help you burn more calories, even after you’ve workout out
- Group Training
Having an experienced instructor, and a group of people to workout out with makes the experience more fun and motivating.
The benefits of yoga are vast. It helps decrease anxiety, stress, and depression. Improves sleep, allows better blood flow, helps with your digestion, and so much more.
