Aerobic Physical Activity is More Effective than Gym Workouts
And, according to a recent survey of the American College of Sports Medicine, the intensive interval of training (HIIT) will become a popular choice for those who want to improve their physical shape this year.
Health officials recommended that adults take part in 150-minute aerobic physical activity of average intensity every week, for example, brisk walking or playing tennis, or 75 minutes of intense aerobic physical activity, such as running or swimming. An equivalent combination of moderate and vigorous aerobic activity is also possible.
The World Fitness Trends for 2018 surveyed 4,000 fitness professionals to forecast fitness trends for the year. Following the HIIT complex, group training will also be a popular choice for 2018. MD, president of the American College of Sports Medicine Walter Thompson says that group training can be especially useful for those who need some support in achieving their fitness goals.
Establishing reasonable short-term and long-term goals, maintaining a training log and using a partner for accountability such as a spouse, friend or personal trainer will help to achieve fitness goals.
