  • 6 Fitness Trends Of 2018 You should Jump On

Fitness and healthy living are the new craze. You literally cannot scroll through social media and not stumble upon any of these things. It’s like humanity has suddenly realized that life is short and we need to do everything we can to prolong our life. Due to this, different fitness trends have come up, and today, we take a look at 5 of the most popular fitness trends today:

Running groups

Running groups have become quite common nowadays. It is one great way to motivate you to get off your comfort zone and exercise. Running groups are really fun, and great way to make new friends and get lifelong partners (you never know). Join one in your estate or just start your own. Invite a group of friends, who will invite other people too and soon you will have a crew.

Wearable Tech

From heart rate monitors to smart watches and activity trackers, wearable technology has become quite popular and helpful today. Heart rate monitors, for example enable you to know how hard you are working during a sweat session. It is amazing how the simple things we use like our phones aid in achieving our fitness goals.

High Intensity Interval Training

HIIT sessions are known to burn more calories than slower exercises. It’s no wonder more people are jumping on this fitness craze. Here’s how HIIT works: short bursts of high intensity exercise followed by a slower-paced recovery period and only lasts 30 minutes or less. There is really no reason not to do it since HIIT is time efficient and very effective.

Strength Training

Can we even call this a trend? The good old strength training has proven to burn fat, gain muscles and keep your heart healthy since decades ago. People have embraced weight training a whole lot more these days and you should too.

Personal trainers

Is it just me or half the people who share their fitness progress on social media seem to have personal trainers? Whether you prefer a lady or man, these guys guarantee to help you reach your fitness goals by ensuring you work hard and use the correct form.

Yoga

Before, Yoga would be known as a white people activity but over the years, Africans too have come to embrace this form of fitness. Yoga not only helps you recover from previous exercise but also helps improve your flexibility and boost your mental health.
