Spotlighting fitness trends
2018 is just round the corner and once again it is that time of the year to make a resolution never meant to be broken! Fitness is the most important areas one makes a resolution in, and with that starts the hunt for ways to keep fit. The coming New Year promises to have many new fitness trends such as:
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
Each year, as we progress professionally and get busy, our health and fitness regimes take a backseat. The need of the hour is for a form of exercise that takes less time and is resultoriented. HIIT is an interval training having cardiovascular exercise alternating with short periods of intense anaerobic exercise and less intense recovery periods. One can easily benefit from it in terms of improving cardio vascular conditioning, strengthening, core stability etc. So in the coming New Year, HIIT should be a part of the must try list.
Yoga has been topping the chart each year but this New Year the trend is shifting to more modernized forms such as vinyasa, yang and ying, glow and sound yoga: Glow yoga is practicing yoga under neon and black lights keeping the basics of yoga intact. Sound yoga believes in the ideology that everything that exists in the cosmos including human beings consists of sound vibrations, and so with continued sound, focused mind and controlled breath, one can listen to their inner sound and heal progressively. Vinyasa flow yoga involves synchronizing breath with continuous flow of postures. This is a more popular form in the west and is gaining popularity in India too. Yang Ying yoga is performed with slow, steady moves with a sense of core softness in ying, while yang is more mobile and builds apex before calming down along with building core strength.
