2019 Is Coming and So Are New Fitness Trends
Keeping up with the latest fads in fitness can be exhausting, leaving little energy left to actually work out. But 2019 is almost here, so it’s important to catch up on the trends and maximize the opportunity in the fitness sector.
Group fitness studios have been on the rise over the past few years, as people find themselves more likely to work out when it is in a fun, social environment. According to Wellness Creative Company, these boutique facilities will continue popping up in 2019, but with some variations to mix up the classes and meet the needs of their members.
According to MyFitnessPal, workouts at group fitness studios are expected to become shorter to keep up with the busy schedules of their clientele. The classes that were once 50-60 minutes will now be 30 minutes. Shorter classes may sound less effective, but the classes will be more intense.
Women’s Health predicts that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is going to be merged with yoga and Pilates classes. CorePower Yoga in Colorado has already launched this method, incorporating both mindfulness and exercise into the class. Mental health will likely become incorporated into more fitness classes in the coming year as well. People are becoming more focused on training their minds by integrating meditation and other new habits into their daily lives. Fitness studios will likely hop on this trend and incorporate this into their classes so their clients can get both health and wellness all in one stop.
