New Fun Fitness Trends

Print pagePDF page

Jumping Jacks, Jogging and Sit – Ups are all exercises we have been familiar with for years.  In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle you must remain active, however the same old exercises we have practiced since childhood does not often make the cut.  A recent finding in an article by the Daily News reviews a few new fun fitness trends for not only adults but kids of all ages.  Tabata, Parkour and TRX for Kids are a couple of group fitness trends on the rise.
According to New York Daily News, Tabata is one of the hottest fitness trends that involves high intensity interval training. Tabata provides similar health benefits to that of cardio workouts while adding a little more pizazz With Tabata, you work at maximum effort on one particular cardio exercise for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds and repeat.

Parkour is a bit similar to the high intensity work Tabata offers.  Parkour is also known as free running.  Participants can leap, dive, and backflip with the safety of foam pits and padded mats in the newest trend of Indoor Parkour.  According to New York Daily News, IDEA World Fitness will host classes on how to successfully get the workout and results you want from Parkour; their classes involve movement training and how to balance your climbs and jumps.

 TRX for Kids is a hardcore suspension training that adapts to kids workout ability and draws the focus on fun, motivation and fitness. There is also a Rip Power course for adults that ramps up the energy level that focuses on “pulsing movement and power moves.” What kids need is a fun way to remain healthy and fit, that’s exactly what TRX does. In my opinion, these are all fun and exciting ways to lose weight and be happy.  Even though these are high intense movement workouts they are still fun for the whole family to stay happy and healthy.
