Fitness Trends Of 2018

Fitness trends come and go every year, but this year Is all about getting back to basics. Yes, the basics. A trend was defined as having more lasting power than a fad, which Is typically met with more enthusiasm but lasts for a shorter amount of time. With that, here’s what you should know about the 10 fitness trends you’ll see everywhere this year.


If you don’t know what H.I.I.T Is It stands for Hight. Intensity. Interval. Training.

Looks like 2018 Is going to be sweaty. A high-intensity interval training (HIIT) session usually only lasts 30 minutes or less but requires short bursts of (you guessed It) high-Intensity exercise followed by a slower-paced recovery period. For Instance, you might sprint as hard as you can for 15 to 30 seconds and then walk for 45 to 60 seconds. You’d alternate between the two for a set amount of time.

There’s a reason people can’t get enough of it: The workouts are time efficient and effective if you’re looking to fry fat, research suggests. One catch, though. Fitness pros don’t love recommending HIIT to their clients since It has a higher rate of Injury. If I am recommending H.I.I.T to a client I recommend modifying. I will go through whatever workouts they want to do and I will modify them so they can still a nice workout In and the risk of Injury Is lower.

Group Training

Fitness classes have been around forever, but they’re making their mark this year.  group training as a workout of five or more people led by an Instructor. The possibilities are endless: boot camps, boxing, cycling, and rowing would all make the cut. These classes are designed to teach you something new, motivate you, and help you reach your fitness goal. Sign up for one with a friend, since working out with a buddy can push you to exercise harder and longer.

Fit Trackers

Americans are obsessed with data continues this year. Wearable tech includes activity trackers, smartwatches, heart rate monitors, GPS tracking devices, and smart eyeglasses (like the snapchat spectacles).  If you thrive off the numbers, devices like the Apple Watch, Fitbit, and Samsung gear watch can enhance your training and help you stick to your goals. This type of technology Is advancing rapidly, and with new technology brings obsession and new excuses not to get moving.

Body Training

Body Training Is what It sounds like. You are using your body for training (exercise). Body Training has been around for years. Now It’s becoming more of a thing because more people are forgoing the gym membership and working out In the sunshine. Most people won’t bring work out equipment to the beach. If working out at the beach Is your thing then this requires very little equipment like a workout mat or yoga mat to protect your body from the heat of the sand.


Yoga has been around for centuries. Recently people are doing more yoga to relax their body from a hard workout the day before. Some newbies who are new to working out are doing yoga to help get their mind In the right place to be mentally prepared for working out. Not to mention, yoga can help relieve stress, boosts your mental health, Improves your heart health, and even makes your sperm healthier.

 Functional Fitness

What Is functional Fitness you may ask? Well, good question. Functional fitness Is defined as using strength training to Improve balance, coordination, force, power, and endurance to enhance someone’s ability to perform activities of daily living.  Lifting groceries, walking up the stairs and moving furniture around all require muscle. The deadlift, for example, Is a functional exercise because you use your entire body…your arms, legs, and core—when you’re picking something up, like a heavy moving box. Functional fitness helps you replicate the movements you perform in daily life, so that way, you’ll feel strong outside the gym, too.

Final Thoughts

With everything fitness-related trends come and go the one thing that will always stay the same Is that working out will always be around. The thing about living In the era of working out, fitness, and health Is that things are always being updated. Fitness trackers are a great way to keep track of your workout. Most smartphones to the same thing all you have to do Is make sure that you just keep your phone on you somehow (like a smartphone armband.)
