Fall Fitness Trends

Fall Fitness Trends
  By Brian Housle, MED, MS – Senior Exercise Physiologist
If you’re trying to decide on something to ask Santa to put under your tree… or something you’d like to give someone for the holidays, think about what will probably be the hot fitness trends for 2016. Fitness trackers are NOT going away, and are predicted to be the Number One trend in 2016, according to the American College of Sports Medicine. The other continued hot topics for the upcoming year are high intensity interval training as well as strength training, which have been the center of attention recently. Boot camps are less popular, along with two very health-based topics – work based incentive programs and children’s weight loss. At a time when the raised awareness for sustainable and enduring lifestyle change have gained visibility, it is very disappointing to see these trends losing popularity. Hopefully, the continued growth of fitness trackers will take advantage of our increasing interest in integrating any and everything technology related into our everyday lives.
The holidays are supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but for those on a weight loss journey it can many times be extra challenging. That’s because you spend the five weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s navigating a dietary minefield, dodging festive yet unhealthy foods, like sugar cookies, pecan pie, and buttery mashed potatoes.
Do something different this year. Come spend the holidays at the Duke Diet and Fitness Center. Make new friends in a safe encouraging environment that will support your weight-loss goals. Enjoy a whole array of fun activities and healthy, satisfying, food prepared by our executive chef. Learn easily applicable workout routines and meal planning strategies so that you can continue working toward your weight-loss goals at home.
