It’s great that people around the world are getting more interested in their health and physical activity, especially because the sedentary lifestyle has almost become the norm. Due to this interest surge, there are more and more innovative ways to exercise, too. No one knows what the future will bring, but one thing’s for certain – the future of exercise is bright, sweaty and fun!
1. Cardio for drummer-wannabes
When it comes to sweating out those extra pounds and shaping up your body, nothing can beat cardio. However, there are plenty of different cardio exercises available nowadays. You can literally find an activity that’s most enjoyable to you personally. In that respect, dance cardio is gaining in popularity. But, modern trends in workout routines are getting even more specific; in that respect, mimicking the moves of a drummer with special lightweight “drumsticks” seems to be all the rage right now. And the popularity of this routine only seems to grow. You don’t have to be a musician in order to work your body and drum your way to perfection!
2. Pole workouts
Practicality seems to be one of the most important aspects of the modern lifestyle, and the future makes practicality all the more relevant for daily life. In that sense, you shouldn’t be surprised that pole workout routines have been gaining in popularity rapidly. This doesn’t mean you have to practice striptease – unless you want to – but pole workouts effectively challenge your body, muscles, and core. You get to tone up and strengthen your entire body thanks to this space-saving pole which provides a full-body workout. Not only that, but it’s also a great exercise to help you accept and celebrate your own body.
3. Full-body workout gear
Speaking of practicality and the need to save space, exercising at home is also gaining momentum. After all, not everyone has the time to go to a gym or fitness center, and some people just feel more comfortable exercising at the comfort of their own space. Because of that, equipping your own home gym has become a trend of its own. Of course, since you’re working with limited space here, it’s no wonder that versatile full-body gear has hit the market. That said, you can’t go wrong with getting the popular vibrating exercise machine, which is perfect for every space, offers great results, in less time, for a more affordable price overall.
4. Art and exercise with ropes
Using battle ropes to improve the strength of your body and carve out your muscles is a rather trendy workout routine that can make a difference for your health, endurance, appearance, and metabolism. Thanks to its low impact, it has secured its place on the top favorite list of celebrity workout routines and now it’s making its way to the future. Of course, you can always opt for something similar yet different and try out rhythmic gymnastics, too. Apparatus manipulation provides similar results yet the combination of dance, ballet and aerobics in rhythmic gymnastics might be more attractive to some people compared to just using weighted ropes.
5. Fly through your workout routine
Aerial fitness and using aerial silks to get in shape is definitely a routine many people have been thrilled to discover, especially once the celebrities all over the globe made it more popular and readily available. Essentially, you’re doing aerobics or yoga in the air, hanging from the suspenders that are attached to the ceiling. Not only is this a great way to get in shape and up the challenge of your exercise routine, but it’s also rather fun and innovative. If you generally enjoy aerobics and/or yoga but need more excitement, definitely consider going aerial.
The more people take up exercising in their everyday life, the more options for workouts become available. After all, it’s important to cater to everyone in this case, and make sure that exercising can be viewed and experienced as something fun and not just a chore. Just like many other things today, the future of exercise lies in the individual; it’s the creativity to do your own thing and make the most out of your efforts by working to better yourself every single day.
