We’re a few short weeks until it’s 2019 and for gym goers, you know that means. Starting in January, your gym will be packed to the gills with people who have New Year’s resolutions about getting more fit and living a healthier lifestyle. Now before we all get super annoyed and judgy, let’s first stop and clap our hands for everyone making a solid effort to live a healthier life. I love seeing new faces in the gym working hard!
In 2019 there are a few really cool fitness trends to be on the lookout for – perhaps they offer them at your gym, and perhaps not. Topping the list of fitness trends to look out for in 2019 include an increase in HIIT (High Interval Intensity Training), Ninja Warrior Gyms, Group Training, and Cellular Function as it relates to our mind, body and soul. These trends focus more on the strength and power of our bodies and minds rather than simply losing pounds. Whether it’s reality shows about crazy fitness obstacle challenges, a focus on the science of fitness or the need to feel a part of a team, these trends are all coming from a more empowering and holistic perspective than ever before. And let’s be real – who doesn’t want to train like a NINJA?!
On average, adults gain between 7 – 10 pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas from over eating and drinking, and under exercising. It is to no surprise that fitness facilities see a large influx of members come January to help shed those extra pounds. Below are five creative and innovative ways in Winnipeg to get back to summer time bodies:
- Winnipeg Women’s Kickboxing
Winnipeg Women’s Kickboxing is hosting their first of its kind Boss Lady Bootcamp. Starting January 7, 2019, this program includes 6 weeks of body sculpting workouts, individualized meal plans and unlimited diet and weight loss support for $150 (including boxing hand-wraps). These three Indigenous Women, gym owner and two-time Canadian Muay Thai Champion Trisha Sammons, Nutritionist Ashley Findlay and IDFA Athlete Tanya Viner, promise to help your new year’s resolutions kick-start a great 2019.
