Below is an excerpt from the Journal of Fitness and Healthy by the American College of Sports Medicine detailing the upcoming fitness trends of 2018! I may be a little partial to interval training :) but it is listed as the number 1 rated trend for this upcoming year! Get ready for some awesome workouts!
"The first step in the survey analysis was to collate the responses and then to rank order them from highest (most popular trend) to lowest (least popular trend). Only the top 20 for 2018 are described in this report. After rank ordering the responses, four internationally recognized experts representing the CREP partnership commented on the findings. Their analysis and commentary are included at the end of this report. For a comparison of the top 10 trends from the past 11 years’ surveys (1–11), please see the comprehensive comparison table available online at http://links.lww.com/FIT/A74.
The 2018 survey results (Table 2) seem to reinforce the findings of previous years, which was expected when tracking trends and not fads. New to the top 20 trends identified for 2018 are licensure for fitness professionals, core training, and sport-specific training. Out of the top 20 trends for 2018 are worksite health promotion (number 16 in the 2017 survey), smartphone exercise apps (number 17 in the 2017 survey), and outcomes measures (number 18 in last year’s survey).
Quality Nutrition = Quality Training
Eating smart not only makes your feel better and exercise more efficiently but aids in a lifestyle that is less prone to disease and other health complications.
