Well, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has announced its annual fitness trend forecast for the 2015 year.

The top 10 fitness trends predicted for 2015 are:

1. Body Weight Training
2. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
3. Educated and Experienced Fitness Professionals.
4. Strength Training.
5. Personal Training
6. Exercise and Weight Loss.
7. Yoga.
8. Fitness Programs for Older Adults.
9. Functional Fitness.
10. Group Personal Training.

Personally, I don’t call these “trends”.  For the most part all of this is essential for a proper fitness regime, and all of this is what I emphasize in my DTF classes. 

Of course a proper fitness leader will adapt any exercise or program to fit any level – be it an older adult, newbie, or a seasoned athlete.  To keep YOU motivated there has to be a balance between tried and true exercises, and all of the above so-called trends.

Another advantage of my bootcamps is that you don’t do the same exercises over and over again.  Your body is very good at adapting to workouts.   This way it is highly unlikely that you will plateau.   If you do the same type of workout all the time, you’re going to get the body you’ve always gotten.  By adding variety, you keep things fresh and challenging, you shock your muscles into improving and you never get bored. Because of this, the chances are that you will continue to exercise.

If you want to get the best out of your workouts incorporate a Dynabody Total Fitness class once or twice a week.  Add in two resistance/weight training workouts and round it out with participating in an aerobic or sports activity.  Join the “Dynabods” who already have a jump on the current “trends”.

Remember, your body adjusts to lower levels of physical activity the same way it adapts to higher levels. This is the REAL reason why people “get old” or out of shape.  USE promotes function.  DISUSE promotes deterioration.  You choose…..
