[content field=”callout1″ format=”true” class=”calloutwide”]The Fitness Industry is one of the fastest changing and ‘trendy’ industries you can find. From Zumba to Crossfit, or TRX to Barre workouts, there is always something new happening in the industry. But in 2015 we are expecting to see the Fitness Industry go back to the basics with these latest trends.
Body Weight Training
The oldest training method in the book, body weight training is making a comeback. Get a full body workout using nothing but your body weight. Do your Squats, push-ups and crunches anywhere to get a full body workout.
Once known as a relaxing, stress relieving form of exercise, yoga is a no-joke workout. Focusing on core strengthening and flexibility, the wide variety of types of yoga will have you working up a sweat. Not only will you see fabulous results but there are so many benefits that you’ll be sure to notice.
I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “strong is the new skinny.” This year expect to see more and more people at the gym walking past the treadmill and headed for the weights. For both men and women, strength training is a great way to to build muscle, burn more calories and improve or maintain strength.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
High intensity interval training (HIIT) is one of the most effective ways to burn a high amount of calories in a short amount of time. This fat burning workout consists of a 2:1 ratio of low intensity activity (or rest) immediately followed by short bursts of high intensity activity. This kind of workout can be done in 30 minutes or less and trust me you’ll be sweating!
