2020 is here and many of us are busy making resolutions. While many of us are sure to include fitness goals in our resolutions, not a lot of us manage to take out time for such goals.

Take a look at what numbers say:

According to research on the topic, about 60 percent of us admit that we make New Year’s resolutions but only about 8 percent of us are successful in achieving them. Regardless of whether we achieved our previous resolutions, most of us go right ahead and make a new set of resolutions — hoping for the best.

Moreover, around 54% people are making the resolution to lose weight in 2020, and 65% want to exercise more, which means a large number of people have made fitness related resolutions. If you’re one of these people, and are scared that your fitness goals will go unkempt this time, as well, you’re at the right place.

Below are some of the top fitness trends for 2020 so you can have a little checklist of your own to help keep you on track:

Group Training:

The trend of group training is not very new, however, it is a trend that is here to stay. People generally feel more motivated when they attempt to achieve a mutual goal in a group as compared to when they try to do it alone.

It has a lot to do with the need to belong and feel accepted, while the end goal makes them feel accomplished and successful. Hence, the social aspects of group training appeal to consumers especially Millennial and Generation Z, which make up 80% of fitness club members.

So find yourself a fitness group to train with and start exploring your body and taking it to newer heights with your group members.

Hiring a Fitness Coach:

It is always wise to consult experts, regardless of what you wish to do or pursue. Especially when it comes to exercise and fitness, it is recommended to hire a trainer who can guide you throughout your fitness journey. If you try and embark on the journey yourself, you can cause yourself serious damage.

So trainers are in demand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of fitness trainers and instructors is projected to grow 10 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

Shear’Ree, for example, is a trainer you might want to consider hiring. The world’s number one renowned weightlifter, strength training coach, and even Presidential Candidate. Not only is he a renowned coach, but he is a humanitarian dedicated strongly towards community building and the betterment of others.

Backed by a long list of humanitarian credits that have been documented throughout his life, Shear’Ree works with disadvantaged people, welfare recipients, gangs, ex-gang members, and, so called, incorrigible youths, to enlighten them and help them achieve a more positive lifestyle.

What would be better than hiring a trainer who believes so strongly in helping people fix their acts and is determined to make people see the positive side of themselves and their lives?

Wearable Tech:

Wearable technology has been the craze for quite a few years now. Gadgets like smart watches, fitness trackers, heart rate monitors and GPS trackers are simply taking over, and for good reasons.

With the tap of a few buttons or a few touches of the screen, these gadgets let you create fitness plans, monitor your activity, track your progress, and even take phone calls. Here’s what a report published in March 2019 says about the wearable tech trend:

The wearable market is promising, as the number of connected wearable devices worldwide is expected to jump from 526 million in 2016 to over 1.1 billion in 2022, while the telecom technology changes from 4G to 5G.

So a good way to keep fit this year might be to invest in a good wearable technology item.

Now that you are aware of some of the top fitness trends for 2020, gear up for a year full of fitness and motivation. All the best!
