FORT LEE, New Jersey, (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Personal training, functional fitness and group training are a few of the fitness trends to look for in 2013 according to a new blog from FitnessConnoisseur.com. The online fitness site reviews fitness recommendations for the new year just released by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
According to the experts at FitnessConnoisseur.com, the ACSM study’s focus on trends instead of fads brings the fitness-centric coming back to some tried and true standards. FitnessConnoisseur.com also unveils a few surprises – for instance, Pilates did not make the cut for 2013’s fitness standards.
One fitness trend that keeps coming back is the personal trainer. FitnessConnoisseru.com reports that experienced, educated, certified fitness professionals now top the ACSM’s trend list for the sixth consecutive year. Folks of all ages are hitting the gym today, and the market for fitness professionals is huge heading into 2013.
FitnessConnoisseur.com reviews other trends from the study, including:
Functional Fitness: for anyone who has ever pulled a muscle or strained their neck or back lifting a baby or bending over to collect a pair of shoes should be checking into functional fitness. These are exercises that train muscles to work together correctly to support every day activities injury-free. Fitness Connoisseur recommends a functional fitness regime for Baby Boomers who are as interested in avoiding injury as they are in staying fit.
Bodyweight training makes the ACSM’s trend survey list for the first time this year. The fact that it doesn’t require a lot of equipment, and that the exercises can be performed anywhere, people who travel a lot or are too busy to join a gym are drawn to it. Fitness Connoisseur says the only equipment that’s needed is body weight.
Strength training stays strong in 2013, especially for gym members who have become accustomed to using free weights, weight machines and even barbells.
Core training has expanded from abs-only work to include lower back and hip strengthening, which will ultimately help with spine support.
Group Personal Training is going to flourish in 2013 according to FitnessConnoisseur.com. Signing up with a personal trainer with a friend to share the cost and the pain makes many people more prone to stick with a routine.
Corporate involvement in fitness has been a growing trend in recent years, and large employers are offering a gym and nutrition services for employees to stay fit. The attitude that a healthy fit employee is more productive is one that apparently rings true, as this trend is expected to grow exponentially in 2013.
Baby boomers are hitting the gym in record numbers too. By retirement age, many people have the time and money to spend on getting fit and healthy.
