This Year’s Hottest Fitness Trends

ShoppingBlitz_Infographic_The-Top-Fitness-Trends

If you’re doing push-ups, planks and squats while tracking your fitness activity with an activity tracker, then you’re on the forefront of growing fitness trends. Bodyweight training, fitness trackers, yoga and specialty fitness centers are some of the biggest fitness trends for 2015. Whether you’re looking for a new fitness plan to help you achieve your desired beach body, or you’re wondering how your workout compares to the greater population, consider this year’s hottest fitness trends.

1. Body Weight Training

Body weight training, such as lunges, crunches, planks and squats, claimed the #1 spot in the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual fitness trend forecast, which surveys thousands of fitness professionals. Body weight training requires minimal equipment and allows you to get back to the basics with fitness, performing many exercises you likely did in high school gym class. By using little to no equipment, these exercises are more affordable and have also been incorporated into many fitness programs.

2. Fitness Trackers

Fitness and activity trackers are devices and applications that monitor and track fitness-related metrics, such as the amount of steps taken, distance ran, heartbeat, quality of sleep and calorie consumption. The fitness tracker craze isn’t expected to go away. Research shows 1 in 10 Americans over the age of 18 own some kind of fitness tracking device, and that number is expected to increase as more than 20 million fitness trackers are projected to sell this year.

3. Yoga

While yoga is an ancient tradition that has been around for thousands of years, the activity that poses many physical and mental health benefits has amassed great popularity in the U.S. in recent years. Approximately 21 million Americans claim to have tried yoga in the past year, and that number is anticipated to grow.

4. Specialty Fitness Studios

Specialty fitness studios, such as CrossFit gyms and cycling studios, are also expected to maintain their vast level of popularity. These types of studios focus on strength training and weight loss and have members partake in fitness activities and classes in small groups. To put their popularity into perspective, CrossFit has over 7,000 gyms and over 10 million members.

To get the most out of your fitness routine, buy workout shoes and clothes online at ShoppingBlitz. We carry the world’s best brands of athletic and fitness gear, including Columbia Sportswear, Adidas, Under Armour, Fila and more.
