Although sports training doesn’t follow the same trend cycles as fashion or technology, it continues to evolve in its own way. Here are some of the trends in fitness and sports for this fall:
Watches that record our steps, our pulse and even our sleep cycle continue to be a fitness ally. We can record our workouts, scores, progress and more. The wearable technology trend includes smart watches, heart rate monitors and GPS tracking devices.
Workouts at home
Home gyms will continue to be a popular alternative to the gym due to the habits we have developed during the pandemic. We will have the desire to equip ourselves with bikes, mats and weights to create a home gym so that we are free to work out whenever we want.
With telecommuting becoming the norm, the need to be outside and embrace nature is most present in 2022. So, we turn to sports that allow us to get some fresh air, like running, skiing, hiking, walking, etc.
Weight training and free weights
Classes that include weights, kettlebells and exercise balls will be popular this fall. It is important to be guided by instructors who show the proper technique to target the muscles and avoid injury.
The trainer comes in and prescribes a personalized workout and does follow-ups, which keeps us motivated. In 2022, personal training can take place via video conference, in person or at the gym, providing maximum flexibility.
High-intensity interval cardio training provides a complete workout in a short period of time, making it convenient for those with a hectic schedule. HIIT programs typically involve short periods of high-intensity exercise followed by a short period of rest or active recovery.
Regardless of the sport, the first trend is to enjoy being active. With family, friends or as a couple, having a healthy mind in a healthy body will always be a trend!
