Group exercise classes are hotter than ever. Exercising in a group atmosphere has several benefits. It can push you to work harder and provide camaraderie. Plus, group training can be fun!  

Boxing

Although boxing has been around for hundreds of years, it’s increased in popularity as a method of exercise for the average person and is one of the hottest fitness trends. Boxing studios have opened throughout the country. In addition to conventional classes such as kickboxing, there are boxing classes with a twist. For example, “piloxing” combines boxing moves, Pilates, and dance in for a well-rounded cardio workout.

Wearable technology

Wearable technology has been around for several years and doesn’t appear to be going out of style anytime some. With all the options in fitness tracking, it can be difficult to decide what’s best. In addition to measuring your pace, distance, and mapping, trackers are also available that measure perspiration, oxygen levels, and body mass.

Virtual classes

You don’t have to live near a cutting-edge fitness studio to try the latest fitness trends. Live streaming video allows you to access a class from anywhere.

Personal trainer

Years ago, personal training was a luxury reserved mostly for the wealthy. But nowadays, personal training can be very affordable. Group personal training is also an option for the budget conscious fitness enthusiast. Working with a personal trainer can be great way to improve your fitness level, keep you motivated, and help prevent injury.

Peripheral heart action training

Peripheral heart action training is a form of circuit training where you alternate performing exercises using your upper and lower extremities. For example, after completing a lower body exercise, such as a step-up, you move to an upper body exercise, such as a bicep curl. A circuit might consist of five or six exercises and three or four rounds. The goal is to work hard and increase the heart rate, but avoid a buildup of lactic acid that may occur when working the same muscle group repeatedly.
