Diversity in workouts can mean the difference between success and failure. The desire to keep things fun and fresh is always existent, and these four exciting trends can add some serious spunk to any workout routine.

4 Unique Workout Trends

Workout routines can quickly become monotonous, and this can have an adverse effect on both mind and body. Studies have shown that one of the best ways to maximize calorie burn and keep your metabolism firing is by mixing up your fitness routine. Your body adapts to exercise over time, which causes your metabolism to fall into a lull. Adding variety to your workouts will help you break through plateaus so you continue to see results.

New workout routines can get you excited and keep you motivated, and this translates into more calories burned. For fitness enthusiasts that want to switch up their typical workout programs, here are five unique up-and-coming workout trends.

Surfset Fitness

Surfset Fitness is a unique surf-inspired workout that draws from the real movements of surfing to create workouts that build balance, enhance core strength, improve agility, and build lean muscle & improve coordination. Performed on a Surfset board (an enhanced surfboard designed to simulate the physical demands of surfing without the ocean), these surf-inspired movements come together to create an engaging and energetic workout that can accommodate everyone, from the experienced surfer to a first-timer.

Pound Rockout

Pound Rockout is a full body “jam session” that combines light resistance with consistent full body drumming. Rock, rap, dubstep, pop and old school music fuse to create the Poundtrack series, and lightly weighted drumsticks are used in conjunction with easy-to- follow (and not complex or embarrassing) cardio moves and strength training. This 45-minute class torches calories in an extremely fun way.

Cy-Yo

Cy-Yo fuses cycling and yoga and helps spin and yoga enthusiasts alike in efficiently blending the two popular and beneficial workouts. You warm up with 10 minutes of yoga, then get your blood pumping with 40 minutes of spinning speed which is followed by another 10 minutes of yoga to cool you down and stretch you out. Another class called Cycle In/Yoga Out fuses the two together, but only in two parts (30 minutes of spin followed by 30 minutes of yoga). In these fusion classes there are options, and which one you choose is all about personal preference.

Hoopnotica

Hoopnotica is perhaps one of the most nostalgic workouts around, bringing us all back to our carefree childhood hoola-huping playground time. While adulthood and fitness are most often fused together to make “workout time,” Hoopnotica and other hoop fitness movements reintroduce the concept of playtime, making workouts fun and energizing. Hoop fitness aims to make a refreshing and joyful impact on fitness.
