People are having more trouble making time to work out, and as with everything else, they want to get more from their precious time, says Marta Montenegro
, CSCS, NSCA-CPT, an exercise physiologist in Miami, Fla. Exercisers are more educated and know that endurance, strength, agility, power, balance, and flexibility are all important components not just to feel and look great, but also to be healthy overall. So, fusion workouts
will be hot this year, Montenegro says.
From personal trainers adding cardio in between strength workouts to ending with a myofascial stretching on the foam roller to group classes that combine Zumba, strength training, and even yoga, look for this trend to pop up on gym class schedules, fitness DVDs, and even in personal training sessions, Montenegro says.
