The Top Fitness Trends Of 2020

Christmas is over, you’ve enjoyed a food-filled December and now you’re determined to shift that unwanted weight ready in time for the sun-scorching summer that is now not far away. Well, fear not because the Total Swindon team have put together their comprehensive guide to the top fitness trends of 2020 that will help you keep up to date with even the most modern gym-goers this new year.

1.) Micro-HIIT

We’ve all heard of HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training), but we can guarantee that you’ve not heard of micro-HIIT training. In the present day finding the time to commit to weekly gym sessions and classes is one of the most difficult challenges facing those of us striving for a fitter and healthier start to 2020.

Well now with micro-HIIT you can change up your training methods by enjoying short 2-3 minutes bursts of exercise throughout your day. Stood around waiting for the kettle to boil? Why not get down and do some press-ups. Got time to burn on your lunch break? Then how about doing some quick circuit training. We can’t promise that you won’t get some quizzical looks as you workout around the office, but this is a fitness trend that is here to stay in 2020.

2.) At-Home Training

Getting a great workout done from the comfort of your own home is an idea that has been flirted with in the past as countless fitness DVD's promise to leave you in great shape after just a few sessions. But in 2020 you can truly get fit from your sitting room with some of the most modern pieces of fitness technology available. 

Peloton is one of the most popular additions to the at-home training industry with the advanced Peloton Bike offering participants a chance to join in with over 90+ spin classes as you tune in to your class instructor on the interactive 22” HD Touchscreen syncing in with the millions of others at-home cyclist around the World. 

3.) Bespoke Supplements

The UK supplement industry in 2019 was worth over £400 Million, so it’s no surprise that manufacturers are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to capture a wider audience. Well in 2020 it is expected that bespoke-made supplements will be one of the hottest fitness trends around. 

We’ve already witnessed supplement companies getting more personal with products ranging from fitness trackers to DNA testing but organisations such as Bioniq arrange at-home blood tests where the results will then be used to tailor-make your monthly supplements. Bespoke supplements may not be everyone's favourite new trend but they are certainly set to take the fitness industry by storm in 2020. 

4.) Workouts For The Soul 

The focus on wellbeing has increased massively throughout 2019 with interest in wellbeing and fitness centres soaring throughout the course of the year. Now in 2020, workouts for the soul is going to be one of the biggest fitness trends of the year with a renewed interest in classes such as yoga, pilates, and tai-chi. 

Low-intensity exercises are also expected to be a trend-setter in the fitness industry next year with more people set to dust off their walking boots and hit the streets and countryside walking their way to a fitter and healthier you. 

5.) Group Workouts

Forget the typical after-work drink, roll on in the after-work group workout! Group workouts in 2020 are going to be one of the biggest fitness trends to hit the industry as more and more people choose to hit the gym with friends instead of taking it on by themselves. 

Motivating yourself to exercise frequently can be a difficult task but when working out in a group, studies have found that individuals are more motivated and are often less likely to quit going to the gym. So whether you’re wanting to take part in fitness classes or do an after-work fitness blast, going in a group may just be the perfect gym buddy for you in 2020.
