Top 10 Fitness Trends of 2010: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

BOSU Ball

10.  BOSU Ball – This balance training device literally stands for “BOth Sides Up”.  The BOSU Ball is an incredibly versatile strength training and cardio tool.

9.  Cardio Strip Tease Classes – The fitness crazies have finally combined hot bodies and hot moves.  Variations may include pole and chair dancing.  It’s not only the erotic nature of this dancing that will make you sweat, but the grinding hip, leg and ab work you’ll experience.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding

8.  Stand Up Paddle boarding – As much as it sounds like a cruel form of torture, it’s not!  Stand Up or SUP Paddle boarding has been  a huge rage here in the lowcountry and beyond.  It essentially involves standing on a board that is much longer, thicker and wider than the traditional surfboards.  It’s a great form of overall strength and balance training.

7.  Hot (Bikram) Yoga – Take some of the traditional Yoga moves and turn the temps up to 110 degrees in the room.  Sweat out the toxins, warm up your muscles, and get a good stretch.

Zumba

6.  Zumba – The Zumba program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program that will blow you away.

5.  Fitness Apps – Got an Iphone, Backberry or Android?  If so, you’ve got to pick up some of these fitness apps.

4.  High Intensity Workout Programs – This includes P90x, Insanity and CrossFit.  You’ve got to be strong-willed to give these a try, but the results are astounding.  The growing numbers of High Intensity exercisers swear by their program.

3.  TRX Suspension Training – Born in the U.S. Navy SEALS and developed by Fitness Anywhere, Suspension Training is a revolutionary method of leveraged bodyweight exercise.  Safely perform hundreds of exercises that build power, strength, flexibility, balance, mobility, and prevent injuries, all at the intensity you choose.

2.  Reebok Easy Tone and Sketchers Shape Ups – I am a bit skeptical, but many swear by them.  Read more here.

shake-weight

1.  Shake Weight – I can’t say that I’ve actually tried it, but sure has been the buzz this year.  To be honest, it just kind of freaks me out.  Don’t be fooled by the gimmick.
