From nightclub fitness classes to crossfit: The biggest fitness trends of 2019

Looking for some inspiration for your workout? Check out some of the hottest things to do right now




Fitness Wearables

Still a huge trend for 2019 and only going to grow. With more technology, more metrics and user-specific data, fitness wearables will be staying with us for some time.

I’m a huge fan of these for my clients starting their journey into becoming healthier and fitter. Aim for at least 10k steps and its a good start to changing your lifestyle.


Functional Training and Crossfit


With more FT and crossfit gyms opening up in the UK, the demand for the training concept is ever growing.

Functional training methods are also being incorporated into national gym chains now (think PureGym and Bannatynes). With FT specific classes get ready to crawl, jump, lunge, press and pull through your 60 mins of all body training.

Crossfit caters to the masses too, not just your elites. Many crossfit gyms now offer children's classes too where they can learn foundation movements in a fun environment.


Group Training


Making fitness fun! Group training is the biggest trend of them all in 2019, with more personal trainers moving away from 1-2-1s and more into large group classes. This is the perfect way to get a hard workout in and socialise at the same time. Grab a bud and you don't need to take fitness too seriously!


HIIT

Yep, it’s still here. High intensity interval training hasn't lost popularity with people squeezing in 30 min classes into a hectic day, it reaps the benefits for time management but perhaps not your knees. Just make sure you are doing all the movements correctly and if you have joint problems or are arthritic … forget it.


Fitness Programmes for Older Adults


Public Health England (PHE) advised that adults in retirement age should keep up strength training as it can help prevent falls, fractures and back pain.

Strength, flexibility and balance are three components that older adults should be focusing on and now David Lloyd has just launched its own specific older adult classes

*HIIT not advised.



Cycling Studios


Spinning took off in the 80s but its back and better than ever. Forget cheesy dance pop music and a disco ball in the corner, nowadays its virtual reality screens where you will be able to cycle through San Fran, Tokyo or Paris, a music system to rival MOS and matching lighting systems that connects in time to the music.

You ‘almost’ forget you're exercising.


Nightclub Fitness


Touched on briefly above but nightclub fitness is a trend growing ever more popular. Clubbercise launched in 2014 and 80,000 participants regularly take part in these classes.

Think a dark room, UV Paint, glow sticks and DJ Scooter blasting ... just no pints of Cheeky Vimto to match.


Rowing Specific Classes


With the rise of interval training classes such as Barry’s Bootcamp, the concept thrives on running for cardio.

For the running haters out there you now have options! Orangetheory is relatively new to the UK but there is scope for the individual private studios and gyms to incorporate this method too.

This concept works with intervals on a Rower mixed with resistance and body weight exercises. Rowing was one sport becoming popular last year so be prepared to see a big focus of rowing in gyms.
