5 Fitness Trends to Look For in 2021
The Covid-19 pandemic changed the way most of us are used to getting our exercise into our daily lives. Routines were altered and new measures were taken for fitness. Thankfully fitness will never go away, but there are trends that will be expected to rise for this year in 2021.
Gyms and fitness clubs have had to experiment with alternative ways of providing their services to customers at home. Virtual workout classes have started to be offered whether that be from your local gym or from online video platforms.
Virtual fitness classes are a great way to continue doing the workout classes that you enjoy, while staying safe and keeping your distance from others. Classes can be found with a low cost subscription, while others may even be offered free of charge.
Cleaning & Sanitizing Practices
Many fitness enthusiasts have moved away from going to the gym until working out is safer to do so. Gym owners, trainers and gym attendees will be expected more than ever to ensure cleaning and sanitizing practices remain long after the pandemic is over. Along with proper social distancing and safety norms to be followed before a person enters the fitness facility.
Body & Mind Training
According to ISPO.com, the trend toward yoga, mental training or Pilates existed before the Covid-19 pandemic but it has intensified since.
“More and more people want to combine physical training with mental relaxation,” according to ISPO.com. “This desire is triggered not only by job-related stress, also by the strenuous homeschooling with children or financial and health fears in connection with the pandemic.”
Increased Focus on HIIT
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) was ranked the number two trend in 2020, according to ASCM’s Health and Fitness Journal, and it’s looking as if it’ll continue to remain one of the top fitness trends in 2021.
HIIT exercises tend to take significantly less time to do than a regular workout, making it attractive to people who have busier lives. You don’t need specialized equipment to do it and you can still reap the rewards. Burning more calories in a shorter period of time is another one of the many benefits of HIIT.
Outdoor fitness with gyms or local fitness studios will also be a trend to encourage fitness goers to enjoy classes outside where they can be safely distanced.
During the lockdown in 2020, many people incorporated a daily outdoor walk, run or jog into their fitness routines. Getting fresh air while exercising is a great way to stay active and healthy and this trend will continue as it has become a part of people’s routines.
