2020 marks not just a new year, but a new decade. And a lot has changed. Ten years ago the fitness world was new to the idea of high intensity workouts. Fitness trackers were in their infancy, as was social media. Working out at home meant a DVD. And Hussle had just launched!
With ever evolving tech and trends, what will be the fitness ‘must-haves’ for the first year of the ‘twenties’?
In the UK around 80% of the population now have a smartphone. Most of us would never go back to life without this miracle device.
As well as using your phone to book your Hussle sessions, you can stack it with apps to get you fitter. You can connect to wearable monitors to track progress. You can get real world ideas for food and recipes, and order all the kit you need in moments. Make your phone work for your workout!
Staying fit and strong is about more than looking good. We all need to preserve our bodies to give the best chance of not just a long life, but a healthy one too. Expect 2020’s workouts to be geared towards giving you the tools to deal with everyday life. Get to the gym to bust that urban stress, and give some new classes a try.
They are calling this ‘the decade to save the planet’. London now has three ‘eco-gyms’ where the exercise bikes power the lights, very sensible. There’s also a trend towards recycled materials, efficient lighting and generally treading more lightly. Do your bit with reusable drinks containers, care with purchases and good old turning things off when you have finished.
One way to reduce our eco footprint is to travel less. With modern high-speed internet, you can join a class without passing through your front door. Expect ‘virtual group’ workouts to grow, along with space-age ideas such as mirrors that show both you and your instructor.
Getting excited? We are – keep an eye on Hussle to see what else is coming up!
SO much change in the fitness world. I can't imagine where we'll be in 2030/40/50...I reckon we'll all have immediate feedback on our body's chemicals and reactions to exercise so be able to tweak what we're doing to get the best results.
I haven't thought about working out from home via apps as being environmentally friendly before, but of course it's less travelling so should be encouraged.
using the power from the exercise bikes to power things is so obvious when you think about it! What a great concept.
Love the 'decade to save the planet' movement. Every business has a responsibility to make themselves as eco friendly as possible so hopefully more gyms will follow the eco example.
