What's IN and What's OUT for Fitness in 2009

This is the time of the year when the gyms are crowded, vitamins are flying off the shelves and people are extremely motivated to get in shape. Health and fitness are at the top of 85% of most New Year's Resolutions. Style and Focus Lifestyle PR is bringing you some of what's going to get you moving for 09' in Fitness.

The fitness trend that is making it way OUT are the stripper dance/aerobics classes. They were very popular for a time but there has been a recent decline for these classes. What's IN are empowerment type classes such as martial art, kick boxing, boxing or a combination of those type of classes. I've spoken with several trainers and they said these classes seem to be popular again especially for women (who are signing up in record numbers) because it helps them to feel strong and a little in control as well as provides them with a great sweat secession.

What else is going to continue to be popular in 09' is techno-fitness with the huge popularity of the Wii and Wii Fit similar products are sure to be seen out on the market. Also popular are downloadable fitness exercise videos you can take to the gym on your mp3 player. Web training sites such as ($60 for 12 weeks) are helping busy and time consumed people get in shape. This website helps you create a customized weekly exercise and meal plans. Plus you are assigned fitness and dietary experts who will answer your questions (within 24 hours).
