Fitness Trends for 2013

Hello everyone!

I came across an interesting article highlighting the newest fitness trends for 2013. 

1. Functional Training- these kinds of classes are meant to build strength, particular for real life activities.  Examples of these kinds of classes are P90X, Kettlebells, Bootcamps, etc.

2. Juicing- Nowadays, juices are big business- $5 billion in the US alone and expected to grow.  Be on the lookout for more juice shops.

3. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)- Short, quick, intense workouts are gaining popularity, and can be applied to most other activities (swimming HIIT, track HIIT, etc)

4. CrossFit- CrossFit now has a full line of products and has a Reebok-sponsored competition.   They plan on expanding even further into this year.

5. Online Fitness Studios- Pay for a live class or a monthly fee for unlimited access to these classes that can be done anywhere there is internet.  Examples: Ballet Beautiful, BBS (Body By Simone), and the ART Method.

6. Yoga festivals- The biggest one is the Yoga Journal Conference, but more and more are expected to form.

7. Weird 5K Races- Examples- a 5K being chased by zombies, Color Run (runners wear white clothes and get sprayed with color powder paint as they go) and more are expected this year.

Are any of you involved or would like to get involved in these? Check it out the original article here:
