Health and wellness can be achieved with a proper diet and maintaining an active lifestyle. Fitness is key to having a healthy lifestyle. Fitness trends this year are abundant. You have a ton of options to choose from to ensure you keep off the extra pounds in order to stay lean and in clean shape. Ideas about products and programs to be used to keep fit can be shared amongst friends and acquaintances. Here are a few trends to keep up in better health and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Walking

If you work nearby, choose to take a walk or cycle instead of using public transportation like cabs, buses, and subways. This will involve you in more physical activity keeping you more fit and feeling much more energetic since you got to squeeze in some exercise early in the morning. Thanks to wearable technology that keeps track of your heart rate and the number of steps taken in a day, you will be able to count the number of calories burnt just by walking or climbing up the steps to your office or place of residence.

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

High-Intensity Interval Training is a decent way to get in some much-needed exercise in a short span of time. Do sets of exercise for sessions of about 20 to 30 minutes with short breaks in between to burn calories faster. This type of exercise also helps in building endurance.

No Equipment Training

This is an easy way to workout and can be done anywhere and at any time. These types of workouts are quite popular, can be modified to suit anyone and can be done for free. Take your pick from Pilates, squats, lunges, pushups and pull ups. All you need is an instructional video over the internet or television and you are good to go. Even phone apps nowadays make sure you get the right amount of exercise needed to keep fit and stay healthy. Note: If you have never taken these type classes before it's a good idea to take one class instructed by a professional or with a trainer before going out on your own. This will help to avoid injury and help with proper form. 

Group Training

Trying a new exercise alone may not be as much fun as doing it in a group. This will keep you motivated and will be a much more fun experience. Get an experienced trainer, bring along a friend and get to work. This will allow you to train for even longer periods. The friendly competition will keep you going.
