These trending exercise regimes are worth trying out, and the trendy Kappa athleisure collection will make sure that you burn those calories in style! Here are some of the most trending fitness styles that are here to keep you fit and fine this season.
Group Training is #goals
This fitness regime did not make the cut until mid-2017 but now its gaining popularity as fast as you finish the first slice of pizza. Group training basically means the workout session of five or more people led by an instructor. It’s a great way to meet new people as well as try a new routine. Whether its Zumba classes, aerobics or cardio sessions, doing it in a group ensures that you all get motivated by each other to hold that position for one more minute. Also, it’s the perfect opportunity to impress your fellow fitness enthusiasts with your amazing sense of athleisure style. Girls can opt for three quarter comfy leggings and pair it up with tank tops and sports shoes for a fun & fashionable workout session. Do not be sceptical of trying out bright and neon colors to go with those flushed cheeks as vibrant hues will keep you happy and energized as you stay fit with your workout buddies!
Functional Fitness in form
This category of training basically uses your strength to improve your balance and coordination skills, power as well as endurance to meet any daily task offered to you. This regime helps you to imitate the movements you do in everyday life and the strength required in it such as lifting groceries, walking up the stairs, moving the furniture around etc. Squat is a functional exercise as you use the muscles in such a way as if you dropped your phone or the deadlift which is nothing but using your entire body as in picking up a heavy box. Thus, functional fitness doesn’t only help you in gym, but it makes you feel strong outside it too. So all the men out there, get your muscle tees and exercise shorts on, and with those gym trainers, you are all set to get those muscles in action.
Bodyweight Training is back
This workout style has been sticking around for quite some time, the main reason for its popularity being its convenience. With no hi-tech equipment required and the ability to be performed in the most minimum of spaces available, this training is perfect for anytime-anywhere workouts. If you are one of those people who want to avoid pricey gym memberships as well as want to work out multiple muscles at once, then choose from the wide range of exercises such as push-ups, squats, planks, lunges and many more and do some effective muscle training. With boys and girls equally in bodyweight action, girls can go for dry-fit racer-back tees and shorts while boys can go for comfy joggers and dry-fit t-shirts for this fitness regime.
More of Meditation and Yoga
Though Yoga and meditation has been on the fitness trend list for long, this 2018 it’s moved up the popularity ladder! There is a variety of options to choose from such as power yoga, Bikram yoga, Iyengar yoga etc. and the benefits doesn’t just limit to build up your flexibility and muscle strength, but also relieves stress, improves heart health and clears minds. So, it’s a much needed regime for all the men and women out there, especially with your hectic and unhealthy lifestyles. So just get on those sweatpants and yoga tees, get yourself a yoga mat, and meditate your way to a healthy mind, body and soul.
High-Intensity Interval Training
This session involves a burst of max-efforts by the body – very hard and intense training, followed by a period of low-intensity recovery. These workouts are generally 30 minutes or less and the best part of them is that they are tremendously effective way to get your cardio done and lose a lot of calories without putting in a lot of time. But do remember that you can’t be doing this intense workout every day as it can lead to over-exhaustion of the body. So with the correct balance of HIIT and trendy exercise gear like shorts and tees or track pants and hoodies, you are definitely on the way to losing big numbers (of calories)!
There’s still chance of reviving your dying resolution of staying fit and healthy this year! So, check out the most happening workout styles, pick one that best suits your lifestyle and aim, get yourself some trendy activewear by Kappa, and set off on the path to a fitter you!
