In 2019, we saw the resurgence of boxing, an explosion of high-intensity interval training (otherwise known as HIIT) gyms popping up around neighborhoods and advanced wearable technology hitting the market. As the NYE 2020 is just around the corner we turn our attention and look forward to new workout trends that to be expected in the coming New Year 2020. As a sneak peeks of what’s coming, experts placed their top nine predictions — giving you a head start on what will soon be the next big thing in the world of fitness.

 

1. 30-Minute Workouts

For those short on time, 2020 will work in your favor. Following the path of the popular cycling and HIIT gyms offering compact 50–60-minute classes, you should expect abbreviated versions of these to breeze into strip malls. “I think the days of 1-hour workout classes are dwindling, and short 30-minute sessions, classes, and programs will definitely continue to grow as people learn you can get a lot done if you do it the right way, with a lot of intensity and short breaks,” says Ashley Pitt, NASM certified personal trainer.top-10-fitness-trends-image

2. Streaming Cardio

With Peloton, you can work out anywhere with an instructor and class. In 2020, expect that same functionality to move to other cardio equipment, such as “treadmills, stair steppers and much more". “With new fitness streaming options coming to market each week and each offering 15–30-day free trials, I predict that people will experiment with a multitude of streaming fitness services before they find the right match,” concurs Frank Benedetto, DPT, and board-certified in sports and orthopedics. He expects fitness enthusiasts to perform long-time testing and potentially have one cheap, local brick-and-mortar gym membership.top-10-fitness-trends-image

3. Gold's Gym

This globally known brand The Gold's Gym now look for more local gyms to open following the same format. Already available in 23 states at the time of this article, “Gold's Gym feature an array of physical challenges including the famous warped wall, a vertical ramp that you have to run up and scale to the top,” says Marcello Pedalino, certified fitness trainer and author of “Celebrate Life.”

4. New Zumba

Mixing the popularity of Zumba dance with core work, new dance workouts should take off. For example, what a class would be like: “Can you do a 3-minute plank? Can you dance to the Cha Cha Slide? Now try doing a 3-minute plank while dancing to the Cha Cha Slide at the same time.”top-10-fitness-trends-image

5. HIIT Fusion

As another blended workout, the success of HIIT is now beginning to mix with other flexibility-based fitness classes - and more will come. Melanie Kotcher, HIIT Pilates instructor and wellness coach, teaches HIIT Pilates sessions. “The HIIT elements burn fat and boost metabolism quickly, while the Pilates elements strengthen, increase flexibility and decrease stress,” she says. “So, you’re getting the benefits from both techniques in one routine.” top-10-fitness-trends-image

6. Multi-Function Equipment

Rather than run on a treadmill and then lift weights, look for machines to come to market offering people the chance to do resistance and cardio work using one contraption. This saves time, space and money.

7. Mobile-Friendly Fitness Studios & Personal Trainers

It would behoove anyone working in the fitness industry, whether you are a personal trainer or boutique studio, to have an app. “I see studios that offer an app to book spots, make payments and cancel classes do really well,” says Alysa Boan, NASM certified personal trainer.

8. Men in Barre

Barre will start trending for all ages, genders and fitness levels,” says Monica Lam-Feist, ACE-certified personal trainer. Although popular for a number of years, Lam-Feist foresees barre becoming a less-exclusive workout as people discover its benefits in helping gain flexibility.top-10-fitness-trends-image

9. Fitness Programs For Older Adults

As the population ages, it's only sensical that fitness offerings would age along with us. These programs emphasize and cater to the fitness needs of the Baby Boom and older generations. This is wise, considering exercising is a great way for people to maintain bone density and muscle mass as they age, plus reap the numerous other health benefits that come with being active.top-10-fitness-trends-image

10. Mindfulness App

Although this has been up and coming for a while now, the idea of being mindful is ever-prevalent in our never-stopping lives. You should anticipate mindfulness and meditation to remain a hot topic and new, quality apps to download that promote this idea of slowing down and living in the present. top-10-fitness-trends-image
