Fitting in a daily workout is a priority for many of us, but some people still struggle with which exercises to do. They get bored with the same old workout routine and are looking for ways to spice things up. There are several emerging fitness trends this summer to help get you moving and enjoy your workouts again.
Unplug from fitness devices
Although fitness trackers and monitors are useful for counting steps and keeping an eye on your heart rate, blood pressure, and other factors, many people are looking to get away from technology and focus on a better mind-body experience. Integrating some mindfulness practices into this digital detox could also prove to be beneficial.
Make use of the great outdoors
Summer is the perfect time to get outside and get active. With many people looking to unplug from their devices and reconnect with Mother Earth, the warm weather presents an ideal opportunity to do that. Instead of the traditional workout in a gym, people are taking hikes, biking, rock climbing, swimming, and doing several other outdoor activities.
Exercise at home
It can be difficult to find the time to go to the gym when also manages work, family life, and social activities. Fitting in a workout from home whenever you have the time is not only convenient, it often costs less than a gym membership. Online fitness instructors are easy to find and can provide the same benefits as a personal trainer at the gym.
Personalize your workouts
Everyone is different, and no one workout routine is perfect for everyone. Personal trainers can tailor a fitness routine specifically for your body which will help avoid injuries and allow you to achieve your goals faster. They are also much more affordable, as many gyms offer personal trainers as a free or discounted service with the purchase of a membership.
High-intensity interval training
More people are looking to cut their workout time down while still achieving great results. High-intensity interval training (HIIT), offers intense exercises in a shorter time frame. This allows for a great workout without taking up too much time. The introduction of this workout style is still somewhat new, but it continues to rise in popularity.
The important thing is to get up and move this summer. Take advantage of the great weather and work on improving your physical capabilities.
