Great Exercise Trends To Launch The New Year

We love to break a sweat with the best of them, but as you know, the same workout day in and day out gets old quick. Are you looking to make your words more fun to help stick to your 2018 fitness goals? That’s why we’re pumped (pun intended) to see a host of new fitness trends to tone up and slim down, making their way across the nation. Will one of these exercise trends be right for you? From a new spin on dancercise (yes!) to recovery fitness, we suggest keeping a water bottle on deck.


Calling all cardio junkies! This class will get you breathing hard in no time and burns an impressive 600 calories in just 30 minutes. Say what? That’s because it’s Hard with a capital H. These classes use the climber aka stair stepper machine for a total body workout and celebs like Hillary Duff and Jennifer Aniston are big fans!

Where to Find it:

  • Rise Nation
  • Cross Training

    Get your weights and cardio or spinning and yoga in one class. Cross training combines high and low-impact exercises to give you a well-rounded workout. Cross training is shown to enhance weight loss and improve total fitness. By mixing it up, you’re also not putting too much stress on just one area of the body, which reduces the risk of injury.

    Where to Find It:

  • Your local gym (ask what cross-training classes are available).
  • Booya Fitness Mashup Classes, available online
  • Wellbeing Classes

    Feeling the burn of being over committed and under-resourced? Getting yourself to the gym for a heart-pumper may be the last thing you need. Instead, how about exercise for mental these? These classes center finding your center. You’ll leave feeling a little lighter and a lot glad you carved out the time.

    Look For:

  • Yin Yoga
  • Tai Chi
  • Nia
  • Meditation Classes
  • Recovery Fitness

    If an injury is slowing you down, or you simply need a low-impact workout to maintain your fitness levels without overdoing it, more studios are offering classes that promote recovery. These classes tone, realign and challenge your whole body without breaking (too much) of a sweat.

    Look for:

  • Stretch classes
  • Pilates
  • Barre
  • Technology in your athletic wear

    The FitBit is so 2017! Zaggora makes a line of athletic wear embedded with technology to help you get the most out of your workouts. Check it out. Exercise trends and technology trends all in one.

    Dancercise (for 2018)

    Put a little bounce in your workout – literally. From trampolining to hula hooping who says a workout can’t also be joyful? When you look forward to the class, the better your chances of making it a regular part of your week.

    Look for:

  • Hooplovers, online
  • Trampoline Fit
  • Body Groove
