Fitness trends are meant not just to try once but to identify what suits you the best.
Fitness trends have the habit of bringing in something that is completely new and engaging for the enthusiasts. With many gyms and fitness centres opening every day, it is just with introducing something new and fun that customers can be attracted. While 2017 gave us so many interesting exercises to try on, 2018 is offering a whole new batch of them to keep you fit and active all year round.
Self – Limiting movement
With an un-impressive name, self–limiting movement lets you strengthen yourself from inside out. With a combination of exercises that need the correct form to be executed, the concept of this trend is to improve muscle imbalances and poor postures to provide the strength to perform better. The completion of the combination of exercises aims to provide a solid foundation for skeletal and muscular health that includes grip strength, correct posture and balance.
Bodyweight training has been in the fitness market for quite some time. Since the trend does not involve any type of fitness equipment and requires very less space it can be practised anytime, anywhere. These are also easy to modify and exercises like push-ups, squats, lunges, planks etc are the effective ones to work the muscles using your own bodyweight.
Fitness for Older Adults
Who said fitness is just for the young generation? Several fitness programmes are being created just for the older adults so as to meet their needs to stay fit. The fitness market is growing and the need to have something for the older adults is increasing. It has been noticed that with age, the bone density starts decreasing and muscles also start losing their strength. Staying fit is the only option that can help in keeping the health of bones and muscles in good condition.
Group classes are the hot topic in fitness right now as they are believed to provide with maximum results. Some people love exercising in the company of others and that is why gyms and fitness centres have come up with concept of group classes. Also known as group fitness, this trend motivates people to do their best and achieve the desirable. Many new exercise patterns have been brought in to make group training fun and full of energy. Pro-Cycling with three forms to it, yoga concepts that are low on intensity but really effective and so many other concepts have become a part of group training to increase the level of fun and achieve maximum results.
We all know about HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training which had made huge waves in the industry. People who love high intensity workouts seemed quite happy and satisfied with their daily regimes but what about people who want to achieve the same but be low on intensity? LIIT or Low Intensity Interval Training is soft on the intensity level, as the name says, but still gives you the benefits of HIIT. While the average time a HIIT session takes is 15-20 minutes, the LIIT session will take 30-40 minutes but will still burn the same amount of calories.
Fitness is a fast growing industry and it involves so many concepts for a healthy and fit body. While these are just trends, it is with continuous dedication and hard work of the person that desired goals can be achieved. As the trends change every year, there is no harm in trying them but one should know about that one concept that suits their body type I order to achieve more. A healthy diet with the perfect fitness workout will do wonders for you and your body in the long run.
