Hottest Trends in Working Out Outside the Gym

As new trends hit the market on a regular basis, convenience continues to be a focus of most weight loss products. Those looking to lose some weight and get more fit are finding this once very difficult task a bit easier to accomplish. While all the latest fitness trends aren’t solely focused around working out outside of the gym, many offer an alternative to the traditional membership based gym.

At Home Options

The continual increase of wearable technology available on the market was originally questioned for accuracy when they first hit the market. But, wearable technology, like fitness trackers and smart watches, have upped their games when it comes to accuracy and they are only getting bigger. Tracking distance, heart rate readings, GPS route tracking, and move reminders are a few ways that these devices help with your weight loss goals. In addition to wearable technology, the market is filled with DVDs and videos that offer suitable workout routines that can be done from the comfort of your living room. And, as technology continues to rise, fitness apps and live video streaming programs give you a routine to follow on the road to keep you from missing a workout when you are away from the comfort of your home.

Popular Programs

Programs like Cross-Fit, HIIT, and Body Weight Training bring fitness fans together in a way that leaves the traditional gym behind. Focusing on using body weight to increase strength, no equipment is required for body weight training. The moves are easy to learn, they can suit any fitness level, and most can be done anywhere. Another great advantage of doing pushups, pullups, squats, lunges, and planks is that there is no cost involved. High intensity interval training, also known as HIIT, is another popular program that uses bursts of high intensity exercise alternated with short periods of rest. The great advantage is that workouts can be done in twenty to thirty minutes and can also be done mostly anywhere. In addition to do it yourself workouts, programs like CrossFit transform old warehouses into the perfect workout space for teams to come together and get in shape.

While some trends come, and go, it is likely that technology based fitness trends will continue to be on the rise. Finding a way to work out is easier as the market continues to adapt to the trends of the times. Convenient and time efficient workouts leave you with no excuses!
