Sure, we are already 2 months into the new year but it's never too late to improve your fitness game! With warmer weather right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get your exercise on, but gym memberships are becoming stale and everyone's looking for new, hot fitness trends to try in 2018. Here's your guide to getting and remaining fit this year with these top three fitness trends.
Try the new yoga
While yoga has existed from ancient times, its popularity is sure to rule the charts in 2018 with its reinvented and refreshed styles. There are many new styles to try, such as Bikram yoga, power yoga or Iyengar yoga. Indulge yourself in yoga and see how your body gets transformed not just physically but also mentally.
With life becoming busier each passing day, nothing beats yoga when it comes to managing stress, gaining mental clarity and balancing work and life. Try yoga out in the open for that extra relief, endurance, and overall strength. But, after yoga class, don't forget to protect yourself from the sun using a good-quality Zinc Sunscreen.
Interestingly technology is touching all spheres of life today and fitness is no different. If you believe in numbers, try a new smartwatch, activity tracker or a heart rate monitor this year to help remind yourself of your fitness goals. These devices are great in giving you honest feedback about your exercising regime, so you know when to slow down and when to pick up.
And technology is moving so fast that Apple watches and Fitbits are already the talk of the past. The most recent devices to add to this bunch are the Motiv ring, smart fabrics, smart eyeglasses and the vibrational yoga pants. What more do you need to go hi-tech with your fitness goals!
Train in a group
Motivation only increases when you try to achieve your fitness goals in a group comprising like-minded people. Group training such as High Interval Intensity Training (HIIT) is rising rapidly in 2018 and becoming one of the top fitness trends for this year. Try joining a group with 10 participants at the most – all with different fitness levels and goals. In such a diverse group, you'll always be proud of what you've achieved along with others and look forward to what's next.
Also, group training doesn’t necessarily mean gym groups. It could range from dance cardio classes, classroom fitness classes, trekking or cycling classes. You have a big pool to choose from! Just remember, if you plan to join a class that takes place outdoors, you need to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays using a Zinc Sunscreen like our ZINC IT OVER® Fine + Sheer Sunscreen Facial Mist, which also doubles as an SPF makeup setting spray. This way you don’t have to compromise your makeup while working out.
There are many other trends rising this year, but these three are here to stay and boost to your fitness goals in 2018. So, say goodbye to the boring gym next door and try fitting the trends above in your fitness regime to see your mind and soul transformed to a whole new level!
