You work hard. You care about what you put into your body. And you care deeply about staying fit and healthy. That's why you always do your best to stay up on the latest trends in fitness and health foods. However, truly keeping up-to-date on the fitness world isn't always easy. Not to worry; we've put together a comprehensive list of five of the hottest fitness trends of 2016, along with some useful information on how implementing these trends into your routine could benefit you.
Group Personal Training
There's no denying the benefits of having a dedicated personal trainer to help you stay motivated, accountable, and on top of your fitness goals. However, rather than having one-on-one sessions with a trainer, many women these days have begun attending group personal training sessions. Not only are these sessions less expensive than a one-on-one trainer, but you get the added benefits of embarking on your fitness journey with others who can keep you motivated and inspired.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
In 2014, high intensity interval training (HIIT) became very popular, and that trend shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. The main draw of HIIT workouts is that they're short (typically less than 30 minutes) but pack quite a punch, which makes them a great option for busy women who don't have hours to dedicate to the gym each day. Many HIIT workouts are even available on DVD for those who prefer to get their fitness on at home.
Aerial Fitness/Yoga Classes
Surely you've heard of yoga, but what about aerial yoga or aerial fitness? It's becoming quite popular these days, with many locations popping up across major cities like New York and Los Angeles. Essentially, aerial fitness classes take yoga to the next level by incorporating the use of a hammock. This allows yoga-lovers to put their skills to the test and truly challenge themselves by achieving positions they've never been able to achieve through traditional yoga.
Training Obstacle courses as a form of fitness have been popular for many years now, and probably will remain in the top fitness trends for many years to come. Perhaps you've heard of some popular obstacle courses like the Tough Mudder or even the Iron Man. Training for these obstacle courses is often done in groups and, because many of the courses are themed, they make for a fun and unique way to stay in shape all year long.
Trampoline Fitness Classes
Finally, trampoline workouts (commonly referred to Jumping Fitness) are also beginning to gain popularity in California, New York, and many places in between. These trampoline fitness classes are excellent for those who want to try something new while blasting lots of calories in the process. Now that you have a better idea what some of the most popular fitness trends of the year are, all that's left to do is determine which of these you're interested in trying out for yourself as a means of staying in shape!
