Fitness trackers, other wearable technology expected to be top exercise trend for 2016

from Post and Courier

Some retailers will be happy to hear this holiday season that the top fitness trend for 2016 isn't an activity or demographic but something people buy.

For the first time in a decade, the American College of Sports Medicine's survey of fitness professionals says that wearable technology, including fitness trackers such as Fitbit and Jawbone, GPS and heart monitors, and smart watches such as the Apple Watch, will be the No. 1 trend for the new year.

In years' past, the survey usually featured activities such as this year's No. 2 and 3 trends, body weight training and high intensity interval training, respectively. Also making the Top 20 list was another technology, smartphone exercise apps, which came in at 17.

Results of ACSM's "Worldwide Survey of Fitness Trends for 2016" were based on responses from 2,833 fitness professionals based in mostly developed nations, but the trend is certainly being felt here in the Lowcountry. more
