As we prepare to welcome 2021, many of you will be thinking ahead to New Year’s resolutions and ways to get fit in the new year. The start of a brand new year is the perfect motivator for setting yourself achievable goals, develop a new you and discover what you want to get out of your fitness journey.
So, we’ve put together a few of the fitness trends to look out for in the coming year.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the way we train or attend a fitness class has changed. Remote coaching is becoming increasingly popular and is a great way to motivate you to train. You can still work with your personal trainer either in a one-to-one session or as part of a group.
It doesn’t need to be done live either, you can use pre-recorded video workouts, follow them, and post your results on an online platform later. This allows your coach to review your progress and make recommendations accordingly.
Lots of health and fitness outlets have expanded online and you’ll find lots of new resources available. It can also be a great way to meet new, like-minded people.
One good thing about the pandemic, is it has encouraged many of us to get outdoors and make use of the big open spaces we have on our doorstep. There has also been a rise in bootcamps taking place in parks and outdoor spaces. These fitness camps are tough but super worth it. They not only build your strength, stamina, and overall fitness, they’re also great social classes even with social distancing measures in place.
These types of fitness classes are also perfect if you’re not a fan of the gym or are still weary of going to one. It looks like bootcamps and outdoor fitness will be going on long into 2021.
Wearable tech isn’t a new trend, but it’s still growing in popularity and it won’t be going away next year. These gadgets and devices can help to keep you on target to reach your goals as well as give you further insights into other aspects of your health, making fitness more personalised than ever before.
There’s no need to invest lots of money either, especially if you’ve been hit financially over the last year. Most smartphones have basic trackers now such as pedometers which you can use to help reach your 10,000 steps a day target.
Thanks to PE with Joe everyday throughout lockdown, accessing fitness classes is easier than ever before and you don’t even need to leave your front room. Many existing classes have moved online during the pandemic and even when they are running face-to-face many also still have the option to join at home.
The classes are perfect for everyone, especially those who are vulnerable or classed as high risk in the pandemic. So, exercising this way limits exposure but keeps you physically and socially active. We expect virtual classes to grow in popularity in 2021.
There are many exciting new ways to get fit in 2021. Whether you like to be social or workout on your own, there’s a fitness trend for everyone. Don’t forget your Hydratem8 tracker bottle to keep you hydrated throughout your workouts.
