Fitness Fads

CrossFit, Hot Yoga, Zombie 5K races, marathons… There are a lot of fitness crazes out there today. But isn’t it interesting that most of these trends are focused on those who are already (at least somewhat) fit?

According to abcnews.com, Mud Runs and CrossFit are in the top 5 fitness trends for 2013. Other popular fitness activities include Dance Fusion and Pound (essentially, air-drumming). Sound like some pretty cool activities to get in a sweat session with, huh? Interestingly enough, Zumba has dropped down on this list.

Just about everyone has heard of Zumba. This fitness craze involves whole-body movement to music with a quick tempo. This exercise does not require one to be fit before beginning a class. All you have to do is bring yourself and have fun! No training involved. This type of fitness craze that can include those of all fitness levels is one I hope to see more of in the future.

If you are fit and looking to become part of a popular fitness activity, any of the above activities could be for you. If you are a beginner looking to become fit or lose weight, Zumba could be a great fitness activity to get you started on your fitness journey. Just take the first step and search for classes taking place in your area!
