2014 was the year of high-intensity interval training or HIIT, what could be this year’s top fitness trend? Below is our list of fitness trends for 2015:
Topping off our list of emerging fitness trends for 2015 is an oldie but still a goodie: weight training! Weight training is an excellent way to stay for fit, especially busybodies who are always on the move. And the reason why it’s so popular for people on the go is it can be incorporated to normal, daily activities such as watching TV or brushing the teeth. From lunging to planking, pushup to squats, all these weight-training moves are easy and effective.
HIIT or High-Intensity Interval Training
Last year, every gym and fitness studio was all about HIIT. This year, HIIT is taking the backseat. Doesn’t mean it’s still not popular among gymgoers. HIIT requires alternating short but intense bursts of activities, followed by periods of rest or low-intensity move. The great thing about this workout? You can complete one session in 30 minutes or less!
Advice from Fitness Professionals

As the fitness industry grows, more gymgoers are learning the importance of following the guidance of an accredited coach. That’s why the number of certified fitness experts is on the rise as well!
Strength training is a part of a balanced workout regimen because it develops a powerful physique. But its benefits go beyond the gym. Studies show that strength training presents a lot of benefits to the brain! This routine has the ability to uplift the mood, improve confidence and boost memory too!
There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all concept in working out. Every body is different. That means a certain routine may work for some but not for others. The need for personal training gave way to customized fitness programs. The great thing about a customized program is it allows a gym goer to achieve his fitness goals faster. That’s because every exercise within the program is tailored to meet a person’s goals. Sure, customized training is more expensive than going willy-nilly in the gym, but it’s one trend we can all get behind on!

Working out reduces muscle pain, joint problems and while improving agility and bone health.
