Health and Fitness Trends to Try Out this 2017

If you’re ever in need of prescription medication and over-the-counter medications, there’s a long list of drugstores in the Philippines where you can get them. That’s also where you can find various types of vitamins and supplements.

While you’re still motivated to adapt a healthier lifestyle, you should definitely also find which type of workout/exercise suits you. In other words, how do you plan to stay physically active?

Here are a few ideas you might want to try this 2017.

 

Livestream Classes

It’s time to say goodbye to all those DVD workout videos you have purchased in the past that either gathered dust or you’ve just simply overused. Social media platforms like Periscope and Facebook Live now make it possible to livestream workout classes.

This technological advancement will enable you to have your own solo sweat sesh in the comfort of your home. You no longer have to pay for gym membership fees, although some classes may require you to have certain equipment (or at least alternatives).

Workout Apps

POPSUGAR, an online magazine, is predicting that workout apps like NTC by Nike Women and Sweat With Kayla by Kayla Itsines will become really popular in 2017. These apps will work much like live-stream classes that you can easily do on your own time. Health buffs can expect Sworkit and Aaptiv to gain followers this year, as well as the introduction of even more workout apps.

Wearable Technology

The market for wearable technology like heart rate monitors, pedometers, and fitness trackers will continue to boom. In fact, they are not showing any signs of slowing down with their expected sales to reach $4 billion this 2017.

However, be warned as there have been reports of adverse results such as headaches and oxidative stress with continued or irresponsible use of some of these technologies.

Group Training

This exercise bike study has shown that some individuals are able to achieve a better fitness score when they are exercising with other people like their friend or their partner. Everyone is encouraged to bring a friend during their workout session to gain better results by the end of the day. If you don’t have a gym buddy yet, that’s what group training is for. Participants will be able to bring out a little healthy competition against one another.

Dance Cardio

Dance cardio has gained popularity because most people love being able to lose pounds while moving in a way that does not feel like exercising. POPSUGAR is also predicting that it will become even more popular in 2017 because they’ll make you feel more like a party animal than a gym rat.

Boxing

No doubt that boxing is already a big thing in the Philippines, but 2017 may be an even bigger year for this beloved sport. With the addition of beginner classes in traditional boxing gyms as well as the rise of boutique boxing studios, everyone now has the chance to give it a try. You won’t need to worry about being forced in the ring if you’re not ready.

 

Any of these sound enticing to you? If not, don’t worry, there are plenty of ways you can get exercise. All you have to do is find the right one for you and keep at it!
