It’s absolutely no surprise that Yahoo, Bing and Google are being slammed with search requests related to fitness plans. Losing weight is the most popular New Year’s resolution, and the one most often broken. Want to know how everyone else is planning to get fit this year? Check out the 6 most popular fitness methods of 2015.
1. Body Weight Training
It’s not just about push-ups and sit-ups, there is a large range of exercises that fall into this category. Think about it: squats, crunches, planks, leg lifts, donkey kicks, mountain climbers… like we said, a huge list. Body weight training is becoming more popular because it requires little to no equipment and can be done almost anywhere. There is no need for an expensive gym membership. All you need is a little space and gravity.
2. High-Intensity Interval Training
This type of exercise has become quite a bit more popular over the last 2 years. The idea is to alternate moderate activity with short, intense activity periods. This boosts metabolism and improves cardio fitness. It also crushes calories with an estimated 50% additional calories lost during the same period of activity with only moderate intensity.
4. Personal Training
When we say personal training this can mean anything from a one on one training session to a group boot camp. Taking classes or booking sessions with a personal trainer is hot right now. Gyms and trainers are handing out free session passes like candy right now, so go hit up a free session and find the perfect trainer for you.
Who doesn’t love Yoga? It’s a great, low impact workout that pretty much anyone can do. You can opt for traditional yoga or step it up to a hot yoga or power yoga class for a more intense experience.
6. Outdoor Activities
