In the wedding world, you’ve got to think ahead. Since you'll most likely be planning your big day months ahead, you'll of course want to stay on top of what's trending in wedding dresses and decor. But it's not a bad idea to also have the latest fitness trends on your radar. Luckily, ClassPass has already predicated what the top fitness trend will be in 2019!
Whether you’re a longtime fitness fanatic or just got a gym membership, switching up your workout routine is the perfect way to keep yourself—and your body—from getting bored. Thankfully, you can spice up your routine in the coming year with the latest fitness trends. ClassPass, the site that lets up book across fitness studios without having multiple memberships, recently released their breakdown of 2018 fitness trends, as well as their predictions for the new year. So, what's on the fitness forecast?
ClassPass predicts that class times will be shorter come 2019. “ClassPass users were 33 percent more likely to book a class under 45 mins (44 minutes or less) in 2018 than they were in 2017,” the company said in a release. “We predict this trend of shorter class times will continue to rise in 2019.”
This is a major win for busy brides-to-be who might find it difficult to keep up with their routines in the midst of juggling wedding planning with the rest of their hectic schedules. Between classes that last for less than an hour and the rise of streaming workouts, brides will have no problem squeezing in a quick workout.
In addition to shorter class times, some of the hottest workouts from 2018 might carry over as well. Strength training was the most popular workout genre for the year, notes ClassPass. For brides looking to tone up, it's the perfect place to start. "It builds lean muscle mass, which improves the overall tone of the body," Jennifer Dene of Mind Body Bride previously told Brides.
The use of treadmills is also making a comeback, says ClassPass. "Treadmill classes were the fastest growing across the U.S.," the report reads. "We saw an 82 percent increase in classes that incorporated in treadmills in 2018 vs. 2017." Boutique fitness classes like Barry's Bootcamp and Orange Theory have popularized full-body workouts that include interval training on the tread, with strength training on the floor, for a workout that will guarantee that sore-in-a-good-way feeling.
