Aiming to be fitter this summer? According to The New York Times, people’s attitudes toward physical activity can influence what they eat afterward and, ultimately, whether they drop pounds. It is definitely easier to attain your goals when you are enjoying the process other than just hitting the gym or pushing yourself on the treadmill. So learn about the 3 current hottest fitness trends and pick one to try today!
1. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
– This has to be the most popular trend this year. HIIT is a form of exercise where you alternate between very intense workouts and rest periods. As the workouts only last for a short period of time, it can get very challenging to keep up with the pace. However, if done right, it is an effective form of cardiovascular exercise and helps increase your metabolism.
– Zumba was so last year now that we have Bokwa. If you love to dance, this class will be a must try for you! Bokwa involves a set of dance steps that spell out letters and numbers on the floor. Once you get the basic steps, you can do it without following the instructor’s choreography. As the dance steps are structured, it can work for all ages and fitness levels. We believe that once you get hooked on Bowka, you will be enjoying yourself so much that it does not feel like you are exercising at all!
3. Body weight training
– Want to tone up without joining the gym or buying any equipments? Use your own body weight! Making a comeback, body weight training is the most traditional way to tone up your body. Full body exercises like burpees, lunges, squats and push-ups, make use of your own weight as a form of resistance training. This must be one of the most cost-effective method of exercising and even the ultimate body builder himself Arnold Schwarzenegger endorsed this fitness method back in the day.
