Fitness Trends for 2016 (and why Pilates is still going strong).
ACSM has released their latest list of Fitness Trends for 2016, and while Pilates is not named on the list, everything that Pilates does is listed.
Here it is:
With Pilates you get all of these Fitness Trends:
- Bodyweight Training
- Strength Training
- Certified and Experienced Fitness Professionals
- Personal Training
- Functional Fitness
- Programs for Older Adults
- Exercise and Weight Loss
- Group Personal Training
- Sport-specific training
- Exercise Apps
- Circuit Training
- Core Training
- Outcome Measurements
And considering that you can do Pilates Outdoors, as part of a Worksite Health Promotion strategy, and that many Pilates pros do Wellness Coaching - Pilates alone encompasses most of this list (16 out of 20).
Now, I am a little confused as to why some of these things are even called fitness trends.
Wouldn't it always be appropriate to have Outcome Measurements and Certified and Experienced Fitness Professionals? Is there ever a time when that is not called for?
If you live in NYC and are interested in trying a Pilates session to see if it really does what I say it does, send me an email and I will get you in!
