Fitness Trends We're Looking Forward to in 2019

There are new fitness trends emerging all the time, it can be difficult to keep up with all of them. These are exciting new ways to approach your health and can provide you with a new way of crushing your fitness goals!

With the new year looming, let's look into some of the early fitness we're looking forward to in the coming year.

Small Group Training

You know what they say; teamwork is dreamwork. Small group training makes achieving the common team goal something fun to work towards.

What Is It?

The idea behind small group training is to reap the benefits of a group fitness class with the results of a personal training session. It uses the principal of working together in a small group to accomplish the same goal. Participants in these classes encourage, motivate, and push each other to get the job done and give it everything they have. 

Why Is It Taking Off?

Amazing results have people in love with small group training. Because of the small class size, participants get a more personalized experience in this environment than they would in a large group fitness class. There are more opportunities for 1:1 advice from the head trainer and better opportunities for growth and development in specific exercises. Participants in small group training feel like their needs are being met and they are learning and progressing in their fitness because the instructor takes the time to understand the group and meet their needs.

You can try small group training at SNFC with GT12. GT12 will have participants work in 12 pairs, working out at 12 different exercise stations, for 12 minute rounds of high intensity interval training, with the goal of mastering 12 different exercises in each session. It's bound to be an exciting addition to your workout routine!


Combination Classes

There are so many different types and styles of exercise out there, it was only a matter of time before they started intertwining. 

What Is It?

Combination classes feature 2 very different types of exercise in a single class environment to maximize results. Often, these classes will feature a combination of both intense cardio and strength training, forcing you to utilize more muscles and train harder. We're seeing this type of training more and more with the introduction of classes like Row and Flow, weight strengthening Zumba classes, and bootcamps combining running and strength training. 

Why Is It Taking Off?

People love these classes because it offers them the opportunity to try different styles of fitness in a single environment. Often your fitness routine will be just that. A routine. These types of classes offer a much needed breakup and offer the chance to learn new exercises and develop and advance in them.

Combination classes are coming to SNFC in January with the introduction of Bike to le Barre, a combination of indoor cycling and a Barre workout. Get ready to sweat your butt off for the first 30 minutes of class on the bike, then work your muscles to their limit with barre techniques. Check back in January to learn how more about this exciting new fitness class!


Bodyweight Training

You don't always have to go to the gym in order to get in a good workout.

What Is It?

This trend uses only your bodyweight as resistance. It involves a lot of push-ups and a lot of planking to get you nice and sweaty. These exercises are simple enough to be done on your own, but difficult enough to make the workout a challenge. 

Why Is It Taking Off?

The "No Gym, No Equipment" workout fills a need that many have; convenience. Bodyweight workouts can be done anywhere, anytime and your body is the only piece of equipment you need to do this workout. This is the perfect option for someone who is pressed for time in the morning but wants to exercise before work or school. 

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

Trust us, you'll be feeling this workout in the morning.

What Is It?

HIIT is a combination of intense cardio exercise and high intensity weight lifting. This workout will get your heart pumping quickly and give you enough time to properly rest. All the exercises that can be featured in a HIIT workout are movements that can be done by anyone at any fitness level.

Why Is It Taking Off?

HIIT workouts can drastically reduce the amount of time someone spends in the gym. With time serving as one of the more common excuses for not working out, HIIT workouts serve a purpose of making exercising a tangible and realistic part of life. A typical HIIT workout will last anywhere from 25-45 minutes. HIIT workouts are also great for people who hate cardio. Cardio is an element of the workout, but you are moving between exercises so quickly that you won't be doing it long!
