Are you looking for creative and fun ways to keep your heart pumping and your body moving? You’re not the only one. The good news is there’s no shortage in that regard as fitness trends are constantly evolving.
In the 1990s, step aerobics and workout videos by celebrities were the in thing. Then we had pilates and zumba in the next decade. The point is, don’t be afraid to discover new ways to stay active, even if it means creating something unique that has never been done before.
What’s In Trend: Full-body workouts like a yoga class that fits your style.
What’s Boring: Steady-state cardio exercises like treadmills and exercise bikes.
The new philosophy is to apply an “out with the old, in with the new” mentality. While it’s true that yoga was first made popular in the 2000s, now there’s a yoga style that caters and fits every body type and individual needs.
It’s no surprise then that the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) named yoga as one of the top-10 in its fitness trends 2019 worldwide survey. It remains popular as yoga has included modern routines such as restorative yoga, climbing yoga, paddleboard yoga, hot yoga and even goat yoga.
What’s In Trend: Putting both your body and mind to the test like taking part in an obstacle course.
What’s Boring: Confining your workouts to a fixed exercise routine.
The obstacle course is a huge trend these days thanks to TV shows like the American Ninja Warrior. Both the young and young at heart take part in obstacle course racing as part of their workout.
An obstacle course is typically divided into several categories that include a sprint race and overcoming obstacles before the finish line. The obstacles may include barbed wire crawl, wall jumps, rope climb and tyre swing.
This challenging race helps fight stress, builds strength and endurance and improves balance and coordination. If you haven’t already, find out more about the Ace The XS Race here XXXX and challenge yourself (and your friends!).
What’s In Trend: Outdoor activities that are fun like hiking, canoeing, kayaking, games, sports, rock climbing and camping.
What’s Boring: Inflexible gym memberships that require daily attendance.
ACSM has named outdoor activities as among the top 20 fitness trends for this year. If you haven’t already done so at this point, start making plans with your favourite group of pals to get together for a fun workout or activity.
