5 of the hottest fitness trends for 2014

 

1. High Intensity Interval Training {HIIT}

Sprint over to this type of training if you want fast results in a short amount of time {& who doesn’t?!}. Usually around 30 minute workouts, HIIT involves short bursts of high-intensity activity followed by recovery periods of lesser intensity. From the gym to the park, get a fast, highly-effective workout over your lunch hour!

 

2. Body Weight Training

For minimalists {and those without gym memberships} who want to grab a workout anytime, anywhere–at no cost! Beyond push-ups, here are 50 body-weight exercises you can do anywhere. Get in shape on your own time–without paying a dime.

 

3. Workout Happy Hours

Replacing “networking” with “sweat-working” friends are getting together over elliptical machines–rather than nacho platters after work these days. And fitness companies are stepping it up too–check your local store out to see what social dimensions they’re adding for customers who want to have fun and challenge each other on the road to fitness. Working out has never been more social! 

 

4. Group Training Sessions

When the times get tough, the tough get going in 2014! Many personal trainers are becoming more understanding of tough economic times and have begun offering group training sessions to help soften the costs and spread out the fees for motivated clients. Get your group on + personalized fitness training sessions.

 

5. Yoga

Ironic, this ancient practice continues to “trend”. Yoga is a crowd-pleaser–not only because of its many health benefits {from stress busting to calorie busting} but also because it’s constantly being reinvented for the partaker. There are so many different types of yoga for every type of need. Pick up your mat and pick your Yoga style.
