Fitness in 2017. What to Look Out For

New Year’s Resolution, long term habit, livelihood, etc. If fitness is in your 2017 plans, you might want to check out the predicted trends.

Using multiple sites, I cross checked and came up with the most common trends to see in 2017:

  1. Wearable technology
  2. Bodyweight training
  3. HIIT
  4. Educated and Experienced Fitness Professionals
  5. Strength Training
  6. Group Training
  7. Exercise is Medicine
  8. Yoga
  9. Personal Training
  10. Exercise and Caloric Restriction for Weight Loss
  11. Recovery

The first 10 of these come straight from the American College of Sports Medicine, and were also found in all of my other sites, as everyone credits the ACSM for the “new trends” list each year. There were definitely more categories from multiple sites that could have been included, but that list would have been well, exhaustive.

I did, however, want to add #11- recovery, as I think this is a HUGE up and coming area to focus on- as it needs to be!

For a look at both the ACSM and ACE Fitness lists (ACE not included as it had many differing trends, but still credible) you can follow the links here:
