Every year, fitness enthusiasts are looking for new training programs to test their muscles and their skills so if you are one of those who want to change your current fitness regimen, try one of these trending workouts today.
- Boxing. Boxing is one of the classic exercises that are making a huge comeback this year so signing up for a boxing class is worth trying if you want to build and tone muscles, trim excess fat, increase your stamina, and build your cardio and respiratory health.
- Strength training. Men who are building more mass are no longer confined to doing cardio workouts but are lifting heavier weights to improve muscle size. Women too are joining in the fun that strength training provides after finally realizing that lifting weights won’t make them bulk up too much. Whether you are lifting weights at home or at the gym, strength training will definitely help you shape those muscles nicely.
- Orange theory. Another fitness trend that we will surely see more this year is the application of the orange theory where cardio is combined with flexibility and strength training. This is a type of HIIT or high intensity interval training that will keep you on your toes and breathless in just a few minutes. With this program, you can burn up to 1000 calories during the training and will continue to burn more up to 36 hours after you workout. Not bad, right?>
- Group training. If you’ve been flying solo whenever you exercise, 2017 might be the best time to make a change to your workout dynamics and start enrolling in group classes such as Spin Cycle, PureBarre, and SoulCycle just to name a few. Even doing Zumba is a great way to burn calories with other people where you can make new friends in the process.
- Yoga. This exercise program won’t disappear any time soon as it gives your entire body a nice workout that increases both strength and flexibility. Add to this that your mind is also trained in the process is a huge plus and one that you should definitely consider if you are feeling stressed as of late.
- Floatfit. Here’s another fitness trend that we’ll see more this year. This training program is similar to HIIT but the only difference is that you are doing the workout in water. Participants will be floating on water on an inflatable board where they will need to control their entire muscles to execute each movement while keeping themselves balanced on the board.
This year will usher some exciting new exercises that will test not only your muscles but your strength and stamina as well so if ever you are looking to give your fitness routine a boost, try these exercises out for size.
