Fitness predictions for 2020

Fitness predictions for 2020

Here it is! That time of year when we look forward to all the most innovative, whacky and unusual new fitness crazes.

We predict that 2020 is not going to disappoint!

Squad mentality

Group training is a big thing.

Studios around the UK are encouraging group training, following on from the CrossFit training boom that struck a few years’ back.

Think high-intensity workouts where people train in groups to motivate each other to burn more calories.

Working out together also means more socials together, so it’s a win-win.

Jiriki yoga 

Yoga is never far from the fitness world’s consciousness, and 2020 sees the rise of Jiriki - a Japanese yoga technique focussed on movement therapy.

Created by Yu Yagami, an acupuncturist, chiropractor and yoga practitioner, it aims to improve your power of self-healing and combines elements of shiatsu massage, yoga, chiropractic treatment and meditation.

Sounds like it's got all your aches and pains covered!

More mindfulness

We’ve all been thinking more about our own mental wellbeing throughout 2019, and 2020 sees more of a push on active mindfulness.

Developing more mental robustness in workouts, improving focus and productivity is the aim of the game, so expect more “conscious workouts” next year.

Surfing retreat

Surfing heads to the Olympics in 2020 when it makes its debut in Tokyo. Expect surfing retreats to be popping up all over the place. You'll see a lot of places combining surfing and yoga in a wellness retreat holiday in far flung exotic locations.

If you don't want to max out your carbon footprint and prefer to avoid flying, look no further than beautiful Wales for some world class waves. Grab your wetsuit and make a splash!
