With new wearable technologies coming out all the time allowing you to track your fitness, you won’t want to miss tracking your progress toward your fitness goals. Put that thing on your wrist or strap it onto your arm and you’ll have a daily reminder of where you’re at and a pocket-size coach telling you it’s time to move that body! Seeing your heart rate, steps and fitness improvements in real time is a great motivator.
Nowadays, there is more awareness around preventable diseases and the role that exercise can play in preventing them. The big four, cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke have all been linked in part to a sedentary lifestyle. If you want to live long and prosper, hitting that gym class, the pool or the tennis court is one of the best things you can do to preserve your future health and wellbeing.
Taking selfies is not limited to the younger generation. Everyone has social media and we all want to put our best face forward to our friends and others online. Wanting to look our best has always been a good motivator for getting moving. It boosts circulation to our skin, giving us an inner glow. Not only that, but our confidence and general sense of wellbeing improves through exercise, so you’ll be getting likes on your pics in no time!
For those who can’t stand gyms, with their muscle-bound posing and expensive memberships and equipment, you are in luck. Fitness gurus worldwide are now advocating for body weight exercise, such as pilates and floor work as a superior way to build strength and fitness. This involves using your own body weight as resistance, instead of bulky machines or equipment. You can do this type of exercise from anywhere and it utilises more muscle groups in each movement. What’s not to love?
These days, there is a myriad of interesting and diverse fitness trends to try, so boredom is never an option. From body blade workouts to Zumba classes and boot camps, a quick google search these days shows you that there is no end to innovative classes, equipment and fitness approaches to get out there and try. There is no need to stick to one type of exercise or class. Why not try them all?
As you can see, in this day and age, when it comes to getting your body moving, you are spoiled for choice. Fitness never has to be boring and there are new trends popping up all the time to try. Now get out there and hit that pavement!
