According to experts, some of the new trends we see this year in fitness, exercise and nutrition are predicted to stay around as trends for the next several years to come as Americans are slowly but surely realizing that our country needs to make health and wellness more of a focus. And regardless of the fact that we have less time to exercise (because many of us have to work harder and longer these days), the changes we make now should be changes we keep in place. So instead of diets and bootcamps- make them lifestyle choices. Below are two of the fitness and exercise trends that Paige Whainer from About.com believes will continue well into the upcoming decade.
Group Training, Fitness and Exercise Classes
Group fitness has always been popular and that trend continues into 2010 with the prediction that even more of us will turn to small-group training and fitness gym classes to stay in shape.
Group fitness can be more motivating than working out alone. Not only do you draw on the energy of others exercising around you, you have a specific date and time to show up for your workouts – a good idea if you need extra motivation. There’s also a competitive environment in group La Jolla Sports Club fitness programs, nudging you to work a little harder than you would on your own. Just a few classes you may see at your local La Jolla Health Fitness Center gym include:
- Adult Fitness
- Cardio/Strength training
- Dance classes (Kid’s and adult dance)
- Core Conditioning
- Personal Training
Along these lines, we’ll also see more interest in living a healthy lifestyle. While we’ll stay focused on our weight (because, let’s face it, the scale isn’t going anywhere), we’ll also implement more of the healthy behaviors we need to feel good on a more consistent basis.
