Whats’ Hot for 2011 Fitness Trends?

Posted: November 3, 2010 in Riverside News

While I was wrapping up Thanksgiving, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) had already predicted what fitness trends will be hot in 2011. While a lot of things on the list are a continuation of past trends — think Group Fitness and Fitness Technology —  For those of you who know me…I’ve been in the The Fitness Industry since I was 19 years old and gained my Personal Training certification at 21 years old. So…now that was 28 years ago. (So I guess you can do the math)! I’ve been teaching Small Group Personal Training for more than 15 years! Holy…talk about a slow trend! Group Training is not new to me…but it’s NEW to Fitness. Absolute Body Fusion’s Core Business was based on Small Group Training and now you know why we got the reputation of being more costly than other facilities that simply just didn’t offer what we offered. The second Fitness Trend is Fitness Technology! People are more interested in techy stuff that provides them with vital tools of losing fat and gaining muscle! Believe me when I tell you…if you haven’t experienced our Suunto Training System…then you’re really training in the dark. The Suunto system is a tool that gives you edge to your group training. Once you have your training belt on, Suunto will help to keep your heart rate in a fat burning zone. If you fall below a certain zone, then you need to pick up your pace. If you go over your training zone…you simply need to slow down! We will be installing 6- 48 inch LCD screens throughout our new facility, so no matter where you’re training, be  the Gym, Fitness Studio or Pilates Studio you’ll be able to train in your Fat Zone. Our next techy tool, is  our New Composition Scale. This scale will  print out total body composition readings including: Weight, Fat %, Fat Mass, Total Body Water, Muscle Mass, Basal Metabolic Rate, Bone Mass, a unique Visceral Fat indicator, Body Mass Index, and much more. Talk about cool fitness tools…hmmm can’t wait for that Scale to come in. Well, can’t say Riverside isn’t  Hot on those 2011 Fitness Trends!  Read my Blog tomorrow to get the scoop on more 2011 Fitness Trends.

      We hope it arrives into our Studio by the end of November. We thought that would give us plenty of time to figure out how it works before we move to our new location! Generally there is a $25.00-$40.00 charge for it, but our members use it for FREE! We recommend to weigh in on it once, every 3 months. We have a regular scale that is ordered from the same company that gives you the basics, if you would like to weigh in weekly. Hope that answers your question.
