Ever made a new year’s resolution to get fit but given up a few weeks (or days) later?

You’re not alone. Thousands of people start the year with great intentions, but intentions aren’t quite enough. The magic ingredient is passion.

When you’re enjoying something and you become passionate about it, then it doesn’t get boring and you won’t want to give it up.

So, this year why not try one of the new trends in fitness to see if it sparks a passion in you?

Soul workouts

This year it’s not just about the body, it’s also about keeping the mind fit as well. Exercise that’s good for the soul! Think yoga, tai chi, qui gong, karate – any type of exercise that also incorporates mindfulness. Fitness studios are starting to prioritise spiritual wellbeing and mental health so that we can take a more holistic approach to our fitness.

Variety is the spice of life

Forget sticking to your regular swim, jog, cycle schedule. This year it’s all about switching it up so that you get some serious variety in your workout routine. Time to look at incorporating classes that you’ve always liked the look of but have never found the time for! From dance and HIIT to boxing and rowing, there are plenty of activities that you can incorporate into your workout to mix up your routine.

Team bonding

2020 is going to see the rise of group exercise – and not just in the form of your regular classes. These types of workouts are more likely to include your friends and family as opposed to your gym buddies. Studies have shown that working out together improves productivity and bonding, so more gyms are starting to offer classes where you can burn off calories with colleagues and friends.


Ok, this might sound like a weird way to exercise but hear us out! Sleep is the best way to help your body to recover from exercise. Without it, our bodies do not repair themselves as well and our minds can become cloudy from sleep deprivation. So, sleep is an essential component in ensuring that our minds and bodies function at their best. Make 2020 the year that you get the rest you need!
