With 2020 just around the corner, fitness enthusiasts and personal trainers all over the world are already looking at how the new year will bring innovative, fresh approaches to working out.
With the pace of life ever-geared towards speeding up, technology taking up a little bit more of our world and the emergence of a slew of new ways of looking at exercise; next year is promising to be an exciting one for those looking for innovative, effective and fun new ways of working out.
So what will 2020 bring to the world of fitness?
Let’s take a look at some of the most impressive coming trends:
Technology Will Play a Larger Role in Fitness
While we see technology edging closer to being a critical part of working out each year, 2020 is looking to be the year where technology, particularly wearable tech, becomes a pivotal part of fitness.
We are looking at the introduction of more sophisticated tech for measuring performance, keeping up with schedules and even assisting with motivation.
The rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) will also be something to keep an eye on, as it permeates almost all fields of life.
2020 will be the year that AI is used extensively to help people uncover their exact needs when it comes to reaching their health goals, and providing a roadmap for getting there.
Expanding on Age Groups
Fitness isn’t just for the young and competitive.
Even right now, consistent research is pointing to a link between working out and increasing longevity and improving quality of life.
We are starting to see a wave of understanding of the importance of staying physically fit at all points of life, which means we will start seeing an expansion of interest across all walks of life and age groups.
This means that there will be a call for qualified health professionals who are specifically trained to work with different age-groups, whether they be younger athletes, or the elderly.
Scientifically Sound Approaches to Fitness
People are becoming more and more aware of the importance of not just engaging in frequent exercise, but performing routines correctly to get the best benefits out of them, while reducing the chance of injury.
The average person, however, doesn’t have the right understanding of exercise and physiology to ensure that they can do this.
Because of this, more and more people looking to enhance their health through fitness, will be looking for the assistance of coaches and trainers, who have the skills and understanding to take a scientific approach to exercise.
Out of the Gym & Into the Open
You hear it more and more each day, people are getting tired of the drabm ‘go-to-gym’ routine. People are looking for more enjoyable, rewarding and exciting ways of working out, which means that different approaches to fitness are being developed by the industry all the time.
We are seeing a lot of movements towards outdoor Bootcamps, people attending group sessions or Cross-Fit training to meet their goals.
A Reliance on Professional Trainers
All of the above points mean that people are taking more specific approaches to fitness training, and are looking to get the most out of them through the assistance of professionals in the industry who can help their clients meet their goals more effectively.
Because of this, the demand for personal trainers is likely to rise in the following year, making not the right time for those looking to become personal trainers, to get the appropriate accreditation.
