Top 10 Fitness Trends for 2009...

...according to ACE Fitness.

I was referred to a link in a newsletter for an article from ACE Fitness outlining the top 10 fitness trends for 2009.

They are as follows:

1. Boot Camp-Style Workouts
2. Budget-Friendly Workouts
3. Specialty Classes
4. Getting Back to Basics
5. Circuit Training
6. Kettlebells
7. Boomer Fitness
8. Technology-Based Fitness
9. Event or Sport-Specific Exercises
10. Mixing It Up

It made me happy to see these as the top 10 as Stroller Strides fits into a number of them and there are some locations that do offer classes that fit into all of the trends!

How cool is that?!

Hi Valerie,
I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm a busy mom like you and a fitness pro, too! I saw the "Trends" article in my ACE magazine and, like you, I was excited to see that what I do for a living making the list (boot camps and boomer fitness).

I was happy to see some of the items on the list because I like the idea of group workouts like your Stroller Strides and my boot camps (we reach more consumers, and consumers get better value), as well as "getting back to basics". Keeping workouts simple may encourage sedentary folks to get off the couch :-).

If folks like you and me can get the obese and sedentary population moving through participation in activities on that Top Ten list, we'll be a healthier nation.

Warm regards,

Becky Williamson
