It’s the beginning of a new year, and everyone is trying to achieve their fitness goals in 2024. Meanwhile, some exciting new trends have emerged in the fitness world.
If you want to switch up your fitness routine, why not try incorporating one of these trends into your own workout?
Let’s take a look at the top 2024 fitness trends:
Fitness Trends For The New Year
Sustainability when it comes to fitness has two different meanings.
As the world becomes more and more concerned about the effects of climate change, fitness enthusiasts are looking for more sustainable workout routines. This can include:
- Opting for more sustainable workout clothes, such as shopping second hand or using environmentally friendly fabrics
- Using less electrical equipment like treadmills and opting to walk in nature instead
- Using second-hand and re-usable equipment
- Plogging, a combination of jogging and picking up litter
Sustainability also means that people are more conscious about workouts they can stick to over the long term. People are focusing less on intense, grueling workouts. People have a lot of motivation for these kinds of workouts at the beginning, but they don’t stick to them in the long-term.
You want an exercise routine you can sustain over a long period of time. For example, if running 7 days a week is too intense for you, try the hot girl walk trend instead.
More and more people now understand that exercise isn’t just about losing weight or sculpting your body to perfection. Exercise should support and improve all areas of your life. Some ways to incorporate this include:
- Functional fitness: These exercises build strength and endurance for activities you encounter in every day life, such as lifting groceries, climbing stairs, walking, etc.
- Yoga & Mindfulness: Yoga classes can be an intense workout, but it doesn’t always have to be – both kinds are okay! This is all about connecting your mind and body together and improving mental health.
- Outdoor Exercise: Spending time in nature has proven benefits for our emotional well-being. Why not kill two birds with one stone and get your fitness on in nature?
With so many technological advancements these days, it’s no wonder they are making their way to the fitness world. During the pandemic, many people turned to virtual workouts instead of going to the gym. This trend hasn’t stopped, and we’re seeing virtual reality play a bigger role in home workouts.
People also want more data from their workouts so they can optimize their exercise routine. We’re now seeing a huge increase in people using wearable technology and fitness trackers.
