It can be difficult to squeeze in the advised three workouts a week, especially if you lead a busy and hectic lifestyle. Gym memberships are becoming increasingly more expensive and it’s not something we particularly fancy after a hard day working. So, we’ve done the hard work for you to find out which are the most effective fitness trends of 2019.
If you’re lacking motivation this could be the focus for you, get ready for a wellness festival such as Soul Circus, Festival No.6 and FloVibe. They all combine social exercises such as yoga and pilates with wellness programmes, meditation and delicious food. The large grounds often offer a vast amount of activities and workshops. What could be a better excuse to get fit?
No matter your timeframe, the hardcore yoga training programme is designed to strengthen the core of the body and improve balance with relaxing poses in-between. The cardio and strength- training bursts are designed to burn calories with calming in-between sessions to allow the body to breath.
Not having to leave the house has an appeal especially for those who lead a busy lifestyle. However, home fitness is no longer centred following a reality star’s latest fitness DVD or doing half-heart’ed squats in front of the TV. Fitness trends have pushed for high-tech workouts tailored to your health and goals. Social media is full of inspiration from a variety of fitness and lifestyle bloggers who offer advice and workout suggestions. Distractions therefore become reduced and the technology will provide you with motivation and mini goals. It is important to make time for yourself and to connect spiritually and physically with your own well-being.
Working out for less
It has been recorded that the majority of those who book gym classes opt for 45mins or less as opposed to hours on end, nobody has the time but wants quick results. If the work is put in, short and regular workouts can be just as effective when reaching goals and target.
Nutritional and fitness apps combine your health, results and goals to create lifestyle patterns filled with advice, suggestions and realistic mini- goals in order to achieve your end target. This can be used to improve general well-being or to raise your fitness level which will provide you an easier healthy life to maintain.
Strength training has always been focussed on weight plates, barbells and dumbbells which are used to generate building muscle and toning the body. However, exercises which are cheaper and more readily available including squats, sit- ups and lunges can create just as effective results using nothing but body weight.
