The American College of Sports Medicine just released what they believe to be the top 20 fitness trends for the New Year. To summarize, it seems to be more of the same -- body weight training, HIIT, Yoga, etc. I don't disagree with their analysis. There's only so much you can do to give your fitness routine some variety. I like all of the activities they list, most of which can be combined with others listed.
In my opinion, I think 2015 will be a year when people decide to try something different. Between hearing stories from customers at Garry Gribble's running store or from my friends, everyone struggles here and there with overuse injuries. Up until this year, my only experiences have been running-related. Now that I'm doing multi-sport events and cross training during the offseason, I can't believe how foolish I have been for the past decade. I've run more miles than God and stretched less than my grandpa.
If you find yourself in a single- or no-sport world, you are first in line to have a breakthrough year in 2015! Start looking ahead at fitness trends you are most interested in and seek out ways to engage in those activities. Not only will you accomplish something you thought you'd never do, but you never know what you will learn and who you meet along the way.
