Now is the time to jump into a brand new way of exercising. Here are the top fitness trends for Summer 2023.
As we gear up to summer 2023, now is the perfect time to shake up your fitness routine and try out some of the workout trends taking the world by storm. From high-intensity activities like boxing, to the low-impact strength training of reformer Pilates, there are plenty of exciting fitness options to explore. In this article, we’ll take a look at the top fitness trends for summer 2023, so you’ll have all the information you need to get started.
Reformer pilates: for toning and injury rehab
Reformer Pilates is a form of Pilates that utilizes a machine called a reformer – pretty straightforward. A lot of fitness experts rave about the power of Pilates, which is a workout somewhere between Yoga and strength training. Pilates is particularly effective for toning your core, improving your balance, and rehabilitating injuries. It initially gained popularity around a decade ago, but it’s actually been around for over 100 years! Reformer Pilates is suitable for all ages and a good option if you’re looking for a fitness trend that exercises your body and mind.
Longevity workouts: for wellness and vitality
Longevity workouts are all about working out consciously to avoid health problems later in life, which seems obvious enough. However, with a continued focus on what’s going on within our bodies thanks to the pandemic, we’re much more self-conscious. Longevity activities should ideally stimulate the cardiovascular system. They include activities like outdoor swimming (perfect in the sun), aerobics, jogging, and anything that gets your whole body moving. These workouts are particularly effective at improving your endurance, heart and gut health, and building muscle.
Health trackers: follow your progress over time
Wearable health trackers like the Apple Watch, Garmin, and Oura Ring have revolutionized the way we track our workouts. By monitoring your heart rate, calories burned, and other metrics, these devices provide real-time feedback on your performance. You can follow your progress over time and see real improvement, which can be incredibly encouraging.
Recording for self-improvement: better form and technique
Although wearable fitness trackers are now the status quo, we don’t often think to check what’s going on on the outside of our bodies during workouts. Recording yourself can help you better your form and techniques. This is where Pivo Pod, our AI-powered 360 degree tripod mount, can come in handy. Through the power of it’s mobile app, Pivo allows you to record yourself from any angle, giving you a more comprehensive view of your workout. By analyzing your recordings, you can identify areas that need improvement and make the necessary adjustments. Perfect if you don’t have a training partner or coach to help you see where you’re going wrong (or right!).
Incline walking: good news if you’re not a runner
Incline walking has been popularized by the “12-3-30” method of incline treadmill walking, made famous by social media influencer Lauren Giraldo. As social media fads go, this one actually holds up, though – however, as it’s summer, there’s no need to be confined to the gym. Get out and enjoy the sun by taking a hike or just walking uphill. This low-impact exercise is particularly effective at burning fat, but it’s also a great option to improve your mental health. Spending time in the outside can be exactly what the doctor ordered.
Weight training: busting muscle-building myths
More people than ever before are focusing on strength and weight training rather than simply restricting their diet or doing cardio alone. Actually, research shows that strength training alongside regular cardio helps to burn fat and build muscle. This type of training also assists with increasing metabolism and improving bone density.
Boxing: clear your mind
Boxing has been around for centuries, and it’s still one of the most effective ways to get in shape. It’s a skill-paced sport that forces you to clear your mind of distractions and focus on the task at hand. Not only will boxing help you get fit and healthy, but it can also help you learn self-defense and boost your confidence.
Summer 2023 is going to be a great time to get fit and healthy. Whether you prefer traditional activities like boxing and Pilates or cutting-edge technology like wearable health trackers and Pivo, there are plenty of ways to improve your fitness. By incorporating these trends into your workout routine, you can achieve your fitness goals and have fun while doing it.
