Year on year more of us join the gym, often with good intentions to make a change but if we are being honest, it loses its appeal after a few weeks. Fitness means something different to everyone so whether you’re a fitness fan or eager to learn about new food trends let’s have a look at the fitness fads we expect to see in 2022 according to Elle Magazine.

  1. Mushroom Madness

When we think of all the healthy fruits and veggies we love Mushrooms might seem like an odd choice. However, it is believed that Mushrooms are going to be the key ingredient of 2022. “The fitness industry is waking up to the ‘mushroom effect’, with several well-known brands selling mushroom supplements to aid performance and post-workout recovery.”

2. Did someone say… Reverse Running?

This trend surprised me too, but Reverse running isn’t a new trend! According to a recent PureGym survey, there has been a 50 per cent increase in online searches for reverse running in the last year. It has become increasingly popular with those wanting to improve rehabilitation after injury, such as hamstring, low back and knee joint damage.

3. Cleaning Craze

This trend seems appropriate after what we have experienced over the past couple of years. With the emergence of Covid variants, once gyms reopened gymgoers have started to have a healthier attitude towards gym hygiene. Since the gyms have re-opened, they have implemented safety measures to prevent the spread of the virus. These changes include a reduction on class numbers, compulsory sanitising of equipment and the wearing of masks during demonstrations.

4. Hula Hoops

This trend seems appropriate after what we have experienced over the past couple of years. With the emergence of Covid variants, once gyms reopened gymgoers have started to have a healthier attitude towards gym hygiene. Since the gyms have re-opened, they have implemented safety measures to prevent the spread of the virus. These changes include a reduction on class numbers, compulsory sanitising of equipment and the wearing of masks during demonstrations.

“Looking ahead to 2022, the recent PureGym survey found searches for weighted hula hoops have doubled since this time last year, while the hashtag #weightedhulahoop now has over 198.8 million views on TikTok.”

Whilst it is a low impact exercise, the benefits of weighted hula hoops are certainly ones you don’t want to miss out on. “According to Lucy Usher, a personal trainer at FLEX Chelsea, hula hooping is an incredibly popular workout as it not only improves one’s aerobic health and core strength, but can help burn up to 400 calories in an hour and reduce stress levels.”

With constant cycle of new trends and fads, these are just a few of the trends that are anticipated to surge this year.
