From cycling to barre to boxing and group classes, fitness trends are ever-changing. Gyms and other exercise spots near your Darling Homes community in Dallas and Houston help residents stay fit indoors during the hot summer months.
This article from Self helps break down the results from the American College of Sports Medicine’s survey that identifies some of the top exercise trends of 2018. One of which is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Companies like Orangetheory Fitness focus on high intensity workouts in a group setting, providing an effective and efficient way to get fit.
Classes at local gyms and boutique fitness hotspots, provide a fun and upbeat way to exercise indoors. Group fitness classes are a big point of interest this year, including everything from yoga to barre and kickboxing to spin.
Bodyweight training and strength training are also seeing a surge in popularity this year. Because bodyweight training doesn’t require equipment, it’s an easy way to stay fit at home with push-ups, crunches, squats, lunges and more. Strength training helps boost muscle mass and provides a fairly simple way for fitness fans to stay in shape in the gym or potentially at home. Darling Homes has a variety of home designs with flexible spaces that could be converted to become a personal gym.
Personal training is also seeing an uptick in interest, with people hiring trainers to help them reach their goals and train them on the best exercises and practices for indoor exercise.
Another fitness trend that continues to grow is to follow progress and activity on wearable tracking devices. With well-known options including Fitbit and Apple Watches, more and more technology is being developed every year. Items like the Motiv ring, an activity tracking ring, and technology in your clothing to track heart rate, motion and more, continue to gain traction.
