The hottest fitness trends in 2015

Sometimes it’s good to mix things up in your fitness routine and try something new. That way, you don’t get bored with the same thing day in and day out. It’s also a great way to have some fun, whilst still working towards your fitness goals. I’m currently over in the U.S., which is the home for some of the latest fitness trends. When it comes to fitness there are so many different things you can try, from online fitness programs to military boot camps, to hanging upside down doing yoga. So, to give you some new inspiration, I thought I’d share with you some of the hottest fitness trends of 2015. 

Aerial Yoga or Anti-Gravity Yoga
This is a new form of yoga where you get to stretch, tone and hang upside down. This workout is a mixture of acrobatics, gymnastics and traditional yoga. A hammock that is strapped to the ceiling is used to support you whilst hanging upside down. Not only do you get all the benefits of yoga, like stress reduction, improved flexibility and core strengthening, it also helps decompress the spine and improve joint mobility. It’s also great fun, so grab a few friends and give it a go.

People are super busy these days, which is why quick and effective workouts are all the rage. HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) or Tabata are two of the most effective forms of exercise, as they get the metabolism pumping and your body into a total fat burning state. This style of training is made up of exercises that you perform in short, intense bursts, with little-to-no rest in between. This is what sends your body into fat burning mode, and why I’ve incorporated this style of training in my F. I.T. programs.

SUP (Stand-Up Paddle Boarding)
I love the idea of surfing and it’s such a good workout, as you burn many calories, whilst also building core strength. The problem is, it’s not exactly the easiest thing in the world to learn. However, there is a new kid on the scene which is a super effective workout, and doesn’t take anywhere as much time to learn. Stand up paddle boarding involves a wider, much more inflatable board. This makes it easier for you to find balance and you use the paddle to get around. You can use it in calm waters or on the surf. Since you are keeping balance on the board, you are constantly using your core, and your legs and arm muscles help when you paddle. This makes it a great full body workout, whilst also being plenty of fun.

Some people are saying goodbye to their gym memberships to start using their bodyweight for full body sculpting, and strength training. Calisthenics is a form of exercise that combines moves from other workout styles like gymnastics, pilates, bodyweight training and yoga. People love it for the great workout it provides, and the fact that it doesn’t require any equipment, which means you can do it anywhere. There are specific calisthenics trainers and gyms, but you can even check out some workouts online.

Barre body
I’m yet to try this, but it’s definitely on my to-do list. I’ve heard great things, and it’s a super hot trend at the moment, especially with all the celebrities. Barre body is a mixture of ballet, pilates and yoga, all rolled into one. It’s great for toning muscles, improving flexibility, and developing core strength.

So, if you feel like mixing things up in your workout routine, why not try one of these latest trends. You might discover what all the fuss is about.
