Is Your Favorite Workout on Trend? The Top 10 Fitness Trends for 2018

from The Huffington Post

This article highlights ACSM’s 2018 fitness trends forecast.

What will the hottest workouts be in 2018? And, more importantly, will you be doing them?

Every year the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) releases a survey of thousands of fitness professionals and I report on them. The survey authored by Walter Thompson, PhD., FACSM asks a sample of fitness professionals to choose their top picks for the biggest fitness trends for the following year. This year’s survey had a record number of respondents at 4,000. See if your favorite workouts make the list.

Dr. Thompson said he was surprised HIITs moved back to top spot. “Typically, as a trend starts to fall on the list it continues to fall, like Pilates and Zumba a few years ago, until it no longer trends.” more
