While we've started looking back at 2009 to determine the best of the best, the American Council on Exercise has already offered its predictions for what the fitness trends of 2010 will be. It's clear that saving money and time will continue to be guiding forces in people's fitness choices.
- Cost-Conscious Workouts - Though the recession is over, its impact will still affect how people decide to get fit. Gyms will create and promote discount programs for budget-conscious consumers, and many individuals will opt to work out at home using portable fitness equipment.
- Group Training - Instead of doling out on personal training sessions, more people will turn to group exercise classes for guided fitness instruction. To meet this demand, gyms will expand or alter group programs.
- Time-Efficient Workouts - The constraints of time will lead people to seek out shorter but higher intensity workouts like boot camps and circuit training.
