The Top Five Fitness Trends Of 2020
2019 is over and so is the end of a decade. But as a new decade begins, many of us around the globe will be determined to make 2020 our fittest and healthiest year yet. So as new and veteran gym-goers alike strive to shift the unwanted weight accumulated over a food-filled Christmas and New Year, the team at Total Guide to Bath are helping you kick-start your year into life with our pick on the top fitness trends of 2020!
If you're into your fitness then you've almost certainly heard of HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training). But as we head into January there is a new craze sweeping the fitness industry called Micro-HIIT training. Finding the time to commit to daily or even weekly gym sessions and fitness classes is hard enough and often the reason why many stop going to the gym. But with Micro-HIIT, you can fit in multiple workouts a day.
The new training fad focuses on you enjoying short 2-3 minutes bursts of exercise throughout your day. Whether it be getting in some pressups whilst you're stood around waiting for the kettle to boil or bunching some calories on your lunch break by doing some quick circuit training, you can fit in Micr-HIIT training at loads of stages throughout the day. We can’t promise that you won’t get some questionable looks as you workout around the office, but this is a fitness trend that is here to stay in 2020.
2.) At-Home Training
Anyone remember the fitness DVD's that promised an amazing workout from the comfort of your own home but rarely actually delivered the results you were hoping for? Well now you can forget about those because at-home training is back with a new and improved bang in 2020. With some of the most modern pieces of fitness technology available on the consumer market nowadays, there are loads of great ways to get in a fantastic workout without having to leave the home.
One of these is the Peloton Bike. Peloton is one of the most popular additions to the at-home training industry with the advanced Peloton Bike giving individuals a chance to join in with over 90+ spin classes as you tune in to your class instructor on the interactive 22” HD Touchscreen syncing in with the millions of others at-home cyclist around the World.
3.) Bespoke Supplements
The UK supplement industry in 2019 was worth over £400 Million, so it’s no surprise that manufacturers are always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to capture a wider audiences attention and money. Well 2020 is likely to see the rise of bespoke-made supplements as one of 2020s hottest fitness trends.
We’ve already witnessed supplement companies getting more personal with products ranging from fitness trackers to DNA testing but organisations such as Bioniq arrange at-home blood tests with the results then being used to tailor-make your monthly dose of supplements that will help aid you in your new fitness regime. Bespoke supplements may not be everyone's favourite new trend but they are certainly set to take the fitness industry by storm in 2020.
4.) Workouts For The Soul
The focus on both physical and mental wellbeing increased massively throughout 2019 with interest in wellbeing and fitness centres soaring throughout the course of the year. Now in 2020, workouts for the mind, body, and soul are going to be one of the biggest fitness trends of the year with a renewed interest in mindfulness classes such as yoga, pilates, and tai-chi.
There is also expected to be an increase in the amount of us taking part in more low-intensity workouts such as walking and dance classes that will help you keep fit and healthy in a more peaceful and relaxed environment as you destress and get fit at the same time.
5.) Group Workouts
Forget the typical after-work drink, roll on in the after-work group workout! Group workouts in 2020 are going to be one of the biggest fitness trends to hit the industry as more and more people choose to take to the gym with friends instead of working out on their own.
Motivating yourself to exercise frequently can be a difficult task but when working out in a group studies have found that individuals are more motivated and are often less likely to quit going to the gym. So whether you’re wanting to take part in fitness classes or do an after-work fitness blast, going in a group may just be the perfect gym aid for you in 2020.
