Fitness and its importance to our health have exploded in the past few years. People are realizing that if they want to live a healthy and strong life they need to exercise regularly. With the newfound awareness, we are seeing new or improved fitness trends. These trends have assisted people with everything from staying on track to developing a better workout.

Here are a few of the most notable 2022 trends.

1. Personal Trainers

The fitness industry is demanding more and more personal trainers and over the past few years, there has been a spike in certified professional trainer certifications. Most people are opting for individual training sessions because of the personalized fitness regime that they can implement. Which in turn allows for better results from their workout routine.

2. Wearable Technology

We see the wrist gadgets on our arms everywhere we go. Wearables, as they are referred to now, provide valuable data for those who are serious about their progress and workouts, and there is an option out there for everyone. According to Split Fit fitness technology is an excellent way to measure, track, record, analyze and keep us motivated. But these are only tools. The important ingredient will always be the wearer. Wearables do not determine our health and fitness level, they simply offer a way to help us see the tangible effects of our exercise.

3. Group Workouts

When we are at the gym we don’t see as many long rangers as we use to because 2022 has ushered in the trend of group workouts. Just like personal training, group training sessions hold you accountable for turning up and putting 100% effort into your workout. Combining group training sessions into your weekly workout routine can give you a structured foundation. A couple of other benefits are; people are keeping an eye on each other which offers a safer environment that can lead to fewer injuries and your group can evolve into a support group of friends.

4. Yoga

Yoga has become one of the fastest-growing wellness practices in the past decade and has even more popular in the last two years. According to Yoga Earth, worldwide approximately 300 million people regularly practice yoga. Approximately 36 million Americans practice yoga regularly. In the past 5 years alone, yoga practitioners in the U.S have increased by over 50%. You may have noticed the trend of yoga stations in mainstream fitness centers. This is because doing yoga after a strenuous workout has been found to be extremely beneficial. Yoga is a great recovery tool as it can stretch out your overworked muscles, while also aiding in bringing your heart rate down to a normal rhythm. So grab your mat and give it a try.
