Say Hello to the Top Fitness & Wellness Trends of 2020!
A new year means a clean slate and resolutions. Likely, some of your new year resolutions are related to diet, fitness, or health & wellness. We took a look around to find what the top fitness & wellness trends of the new year will be so you can get a jumpstart on your resolutions. Take a look below to find out what will be hot in 2020.
Health/wellness coaching: Health & wellness coaches have been around for awhile, but you’ll see a bigger trend towards them in 2020. These coaches are focused on giving you a better quality of life - they can help you manage stress, restore balance, make healthy lifestyle choices, and more. Be sure to find one who is certified - by IIN for example.
High intensity interval training: High intensity interval training (HIIT) has been big since 2014, but it will grown in popularity even more in the upcoming year. This workout involves short bursts of high intensity exercise followed by short rest periods and makes you fitter, less stressed, boosts brain health, plus helps you fight off chronic diseases. You can’t go wrong with HIIT!
Digital on-demand fitness: Who needs a gym these days? Now you can easily work out in the comfort of your own home by streaming a host of fitness classes & workouts. This will keep growing as more people work from home or on the road. You can even get a virtual personal trainer! And digital fitness costs a fraction of what you would pay for an in-person trainer & gym membership.
Wearable tech: Grab that smart watch & keep an eye on your steps and health tracker apps this upcoming year - fitness will be getting even techier! American College of Sports Medicine listed wearable tech as the #1 trend for 2020. From Fitbit to leggings that have sensors to improve your yoga flow, working out will be easier than ever.
Going meatless: There are plenty of reasons to go meatless - improving your health, helping out the planet - and 2020 will see more & better meatless options available. You’ll see more variety and new brands entering the market with everything from meatless burgers to “tuna” made from legumes. This year the sky is the limit. Plus, you can get your meatless vibes on with Top Chef Meals such as our Wild Mushroom Marsala Ravioli, Grilled Balsamic Tofu, Smothered Vegan Burger, and more!
Telehealth: Let’s face it, finding time to get to the doctor is hard. Factor in the drive, plus time in the waiting room before you actually see the doc and we’re talking hours of your day gone. Luckily, 2020 will see the roll-out of more telehealth services. Seeing a doctor & getting a prescription in 10 minutes from the comfort & privacy of your home provides a much better option!
Customized fitness: Fitness isn’t one size fits all - what works for you may not work for your friend and vice versa. Thankfully, you can customize your fitness experience these days. It may cost a bit more, but getting a customized fitness plan means you’re creating a program designed specifically with your health goals in mind which equals better health & quality of life.
Meet and exceed your new year’s fitness/health resolutions by taking advantage of these trends. In no time, you’ll be on your way to a healthier, happier you.
Happy New Year from all of us here at Top Chef Meals!
