Predicting The Top 10 Fitness Trends Of 2016
2015 is wrapping up and we have an entirely new year ahead! Wait a minute! Where did all the time fly? Most of you must be feeling the same. Well, time waits for none, it just keeps flowing. It is like a river; you can’t touch the same water twice. So keep the memories of 2015 in your heart and welcome the New Year. It is resolution making time filled with hopes of a fresh start.
New Year resolutions are usually related to weight loss and health. Every one resolves to lose weight each year regardless of their previously failed attempts 😛 There are some like me who resolve to gain weight but we are a minority in this weight loss obsessed crowd. So back to weight loss! You can’t lose weight at the drop of the hat. You need to work towards it with a solid plan in front of you. You can now seek the help of technology in your weight loss pursuits. In the recent past, wearable technology has taken over the fitness world by the storm. They help in tracking calories, mileage and even the quality of your sleep.
In a survey conducted this year in the US, wearable technology has surpassed activities such as body weight training and HIIT (High intensity interval training) and has been able to claim the number one position. The interest in consumers in fitness technology signals that the low-cost, do-it-yourself exercise trend is slowly vanishing.
Innovations in technology have created a revolution in the fitness industry. It has been able to enter the everyday lives of people and enabled them to track and share their progress real fast. It can be helpful in letting doctors track their patient’s progress. Not only that, even personal trainers can document the progress of their clients. Wearable technology can help individuals attain their fitness goals even outside the gym!
Technology is central to our daily lives and has completely changed the way we manage our workouts. Wearable devices are known to provide immediate feedback that helps in making the wearer aware of their level of activity and can motivate the individual in achieving their fitness goals.
