Fitness Trends1. High Intensity Interval Training (HITS)

One of the hottest trend in fitness in recent years, HITS continue to be a popular choice for 2015. High-Intensity Interval Training involves short bursts of activity followed by a short period of rest or recovery. These workouts are generally 30-minute sessions or less and can provide multiple health benefits such as improving cardiovascular health, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels, not to mention help shed weight fast.

2. Online Training Classes

An excellent choice for busy folks, online training classes have been increasing in popularity in the past few years. This affordable option gets more followers due to its amazing flexibility: you can’t do it now, just do it later, whenever it fits your schedule. You can sign up for online training programs as well as just use some online videos to do it on your own.

3. Strength Training

Strength training is exercising with the goal of increasing your physical strength and, at the same time, getting additional health benefits. It burns fat and calories, regulates your metabolic rate and can be helpful to make you stick to your diet better. Additionally, strength training increases endurance, bone density and testosterone levels as well as it strengthens your joints and promotes better sleep.

4. Outdoor Activities

Outdoor activities are always a great option. Along with the no cost benefit, outdoor recreation has psychological benefits, including the prevention or reduction of stress. It can also provide physical benefits, such as aerobic, cardiovascular and muscular fitness, as well as improve functioning of the immune system. Moreover, outdoor activities can help increase environmental awareness.

5. Yoga

Yoga increases flexibility and reduces stress, but the longtime practice also offer some hidden benefits. Yoga is known to help boost immunity, strength muscles, and promote better sleep. Another great reason to do yoga: flexibility, it can be done pretty much anywhere, anytime.

6. Body weight Training

Bodyweight exercises are strength training exercises that do not require free weights as practitioners use their own weight to provide the resistance for the movement. Movements such as the push-up, the pull-up, and the sit-up are some of the most common bodyweight exercises. Because they do not require weights, bodyweight exercises are the ideal choice for individuals who are interested in fitness but do not have access to equipment.

7. Group Personal Training

How about sharing a personal trainer? The obvious advantage of group personal training as compared to one-on-one training is cost. People will pay a lot of money a month for good instruction, great workouts, and solid results but you can save a little if you share a personal trainer with a few other folks and still get some great training. In addition to cost savings, group personal training offers the benefit of motivation from both the instructor and the other participants as there is always good, high energy in a group workout.
