Make 2017 Your Fittest and Healthiest Year Yet With These Hot Trends to Set Your Goals on Fire
Today’s fitness industry has enjoyed a remarkable growth, made possible by people who finally came to realize the importance of leading a sweat-drenched life. Every month, there are new exciting ways introduced in the fitness lifestyle market offering people a chance to lead an active life. Back in 2016, boot camp workout, boutique boxing, high intensity interval training and hybrid classes have been on a rise.
This 2017, it’s pretty obvious that fitness fads will not go anywhere and here are the trends you can look forward to this year.
Did last year’s water aerobics sound funny to you? Although aqua fitness is not a new thing, pool biking is the trend for water workouts this year. Bikes with special designs give you cardiovascular endurance workout of spin class with low impact water support. This makes you burn as much as 800 calories in just an hour not to mention that this is gentler on your joints too. Since it has 12 times higher resistance, there are more chances for you to tone your body and lose more weight.
Tech It Up
The past year has been dominated by wearable fitness and this year, it is surely going to be among the biggest fitness trends. It’s obvious that people are after quantified workouts that can be monitored with metrics. Walk down the streets and you will see a lot of people wearing some kind of fitness tracker. Indeed, the humble pedometers went through such an amazing evolution.
Outdoor gyms seemed to have sprouted like mushrooms and many fitness novices are more than happy to try the free equipment. Outdoor gyming is going to be a trend as people go back to the evolutionary and primitive exercises like jumping, carrying, crawling and lifting.
Also a trend that is bound to affect this year’s fitness routines is none other than dance cardio. People are going to work out in ways that don’t even feel like working out at all. The dance cardio classes feel more like a party instead of a sweat session for losing weight. Strength training combined with cardio inspired choreography routines for fun and intense workouts are going to enjoy much popularity.
HIIT can finally make a run for its money as HEAT or high energy athletic training is going to be more in demand this 2017. It makes use of sports focused theories and boost cardiovascular endurance and all round strength.
The last but definitely not the least fat burning workout to watch out for is bear crawling. Considered as among the coolest trends yet, this is said to be a new form of plank but much tougher as this is a moving plank this time. It is an effective and demanding core exercise which also eases back problems. While retaining a core position with things tucked in, you need to move forward, backward and laterally.
