Fitness fads come and go but this year’s top fitness trends are quite similar to last year and most should continue to be popular in the years to come. Thousands of fitness professionals from around the world were surveyed and these are the top 5 most popular fitness trends for 2020.
1. Wearable technology
Taking the top slot again are all those fitness trackers, smart watches, heart monitors and GPS trackers that now make up a $95 billion industry. Wearable tech can supply a host of stats about your health and fitness, plus track your progress to help keep you motivated. Since Australians love their technology, it is no wonder this is at the top of fitness trends for 2020.
2. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
High intensity exercise may help you lose weight and body fat faster than traditional exercise routines. High-Intensity Interval Training – HIIT – is changing the way we work out. These exercise programs typically involve short bursts of high-intensity bouts of exercise followed by a short period of rest. It’s tough, but you often get the results you want fast!
3. Group Training
It’s no surprise to see this one on the list. Working with other people can give you a buzz of energy, help you stay motivated and feel part of a team. Though some people enjoy working on their own, a lot of people need an extra push by an instructor and enjoy the feeling of training with other like minded people.
4. Training with free weights
Free weights are barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells or medicine balls. Training with free weights is a growing trend, and it’s not just for men. There are significant health benefits too like improving blood glucose levels through to reducing body fat levels and strengthening bones. Always make sure you get the basic moves right before you start to use any equipment.
5. Personal Training
