Everything you need to know about the latest fitness trends

The year is ending with numerous fitness trends that were surprisingly fun and challenging at the same time. They gave our boring work out routines the perfect spice up it needed and now, we’re hooked. If you’re someone who is still stuck on a 30-minute treadmill runs or the sporadic elliptical reps, here’s a list of options you have and most importantly need to get in the best shape of your life.

1.Jumping on Trampoline

Jumping on Trampoline

Jumping on a trampoline is nothing less than just pure joy but when done properly, it can burn those calories and get you in a killer shape. It is defined as a workout which is 68 per cent more effective than running, and while it’s a high intensity workout, the fact that trampolines absorb energy means that it’s low impact on your joints, unlike running across town.

It’s a refreshing change from the furrowed brows of the weights room or being barked at by a drill sergeant. You’ll get the same fitness payoff as a boot camp. Also, lolling along as you attempt to high kick on a trampette will contribute to toning and strengthening your core- the instability combined with changeable forces of gravity when you’re bouncing challenge your abs to the max.

If you’ve got a weight loss goal in mind, jumping on a trampoline could be just as, if not more, effective than more dreary gym cardio options. Five minutes of jumping on a trampoline should clarify why: if you’re even vaguely keeping up, you’ll be sweating profusely and both breathing and heart rate will be elevated. As cardio goes, it’s a short, sharp effective workout, furnished with the kind of exhilaration that the sweating HIIT sessions just can’t deliver.

Jumping on a trampoline will be all fun and games with you, occasionally losing control and falling right on your bum but that’s when the real change happens. With consistent practice sessions, you will make for agile limbs and whip smart brain-body coordination. This coordination will come handy for clubbing and of course, the wedding dances.

Not just that, jumping on a trampoline also helps with fighting cellulite. As it improves your circulation which in turn prevents the fluid retention and stubborn fat tissue formation associated with the much-hated cellulite. It’s safe to say that regular jumping on a trampoline sessions are perfect for smoothing over dimples.

With that, it also has group exercises classes like that of Body Combact (a martial-arts inspired class where you become a video game character fighting space invaders), Grit (high-intensity interval training where the goal is to avoid flying objects on the screen), Body Jam (a dance class with choreography synchronized to music and graphics) and Body Balance (yoga poses against real natural scenery).

3.Prama

The Prama exercise regime, which co-ordinates music, lights and monitors the participants heart rate and progress, is the rising trend. While circuit training classes invariably involve people working at a set pace, this game uses a computer to set different levels at each section of the touch sensitive floor, featuring grids, patterns and numbers, so different age groups and levels of fitness can exercise at the same time. This really slims your legs!

Prama trains all major muscle groups through nonstop movement, building endurance, strength, balance, speed, agility, reaction time, and overall fitness.

4.Boxing

This exercise form is making its way onto the fitness scene – and it’s not just the Victoria’s Secret models that are picking up on it. It targets the entire body alongside, boosting strength and cardio-respiratory fitness. With that, it also improves a number of skill-related parameters of fitness, including balance, coordination, reactivity, and agility.

With a potential burn rate of 13 calories a minute, boxing goes head-to-head with other types of cardio like running and cycling. Plan to punch away anywhere from 200 to 400 calories per half hour. Thirty minutes of boxing in a ring torches 400 calories; 30 minutes of punching a bag burns 200 calories; and 30 minutes sparring with a partner blasts 300 calories. So, compared to running at a steady clip, boxing burns more calories in less time besides it is a blessing for those looking for flat belly. Besides, boxing can be a safer alternative to some of the riskier heart-pounding workouts out there. The body moves exactly the way it is intended to move, just at elevated speed.

The latest trends mentioned seem not just effective in terms of elevating your fitness game but also seem to be loads of fun. They’re worth a try with your fitness buddies, who knows, you might just end up loving the experience. You can easily transform your body with these fitness routines!
