What is the newest workout routine? Being a personal trainer, I always try to keep up on the latest workout routines that are available. I’ve been working out since, well, I don’t want to give away my age, but, let’s just say that I’m very familiar with retro step class! I’ll go over some of my favorite new workout routines!
Sometimes, workout exercises can be just the latest workout craze. It may last for a little while, or it may just completely catch on! Being into martial arts, I had trained with a very popular cardio kickboxing guy in California. That craze caught on, and it’s sort of stuck! Step class was really popular in the 1980’s, and now, they have transformed that step class to make it new and exciting. However, you will see the term ‘retro step’ in some gyms. This refers to the step aerobic classes they used to teach in the 1980’s.
Two years ago, I went to one of the big fitness conventions. You can walk around and see all the latest workout routines, as well as new fitness products. I saw these big body building type guys all doing a workout routine in synch on little miniature trampoline’s. It looked fun, but, that workout craze never really caught on.
Some popular workout craze’s that have started to catch on this year have been hula hooping, hip hop, power yoga, boxing, and even hula dancing. But, others that have become super popular are in the video game arena. The workout Wii has been reported by lot’s of people to not only work, but, they have said that it is really fun! I haven’t personally tried all the different workouts that Wii offers, but, being that I love boxing, I tried that out, and it was actually a lot of fun.
TRX training is the newest workout routine that people really like, which is suspension training. It is used a s a system by itself, and sometimes it is incorporated into some bootcamp style workout routines.
Crossfit has also gotten really popular, but, I feel it’s not for everyone. Crossfit incorporates lot’s of different exercises, which can really be a lot of fun. It even includes some gymnastics type movements such as hand stands and L-sits. It’s a heck of a workout! It is used by many of the police and firemen, and it can be really intense!
I’m excited to see what new trend 2011 brings about for the latest in workout routines!
