Top 5 Fitness Trends 2014

Looking to inject a little fun into your fitness regime? Make the most of your gym membership and try a new training approach. We see these 5 fitness trends making a major impact in 2014. 

1. Tabata

This high tempo interval training approach sounds simple, but it challenges your body by pushing you to new extremes. Plan out a series of exercises like burpees and squats that can be performed for 20 seconds with 10 second rest intervals between sets. Repeat the circuit as many times as necessary to suit your goals and time frame. 

2. Kinesis

If you've ever checked out this wall-based machine with its loop cable system and wondered how it could possibly work, you're not alone. This is one of the gym floor's best kept secrets - which is why you'll so often see the most dedicated body builders toning their muscles with an endless series of dynamic exercises all performed on the Kinesis. It's the ultimate functional training approach - no matter what muscle group you're working, you'll be building core strength at the same time. 

3. Bootcamps

There's no arguing with results - or bootcamp instructors - which is why this is one of the best ways to make great gains in a short timeframe. We've finally caught the bootcamp bug with 2014's new addition to the class list on your MYLA Memberzone. Book in for an LA 20 Bootcamp session and get ready for an addictive full body workout you're guaranteed to feel the next day.

4. Crossfit

Crossfit challenges even the most experienced fitness fanatics by combining gymnastics, weight lifting and callisthenics. Each workout of the day (WOD) is truly gruelling, based on the principle of competing against yourself to improve on yesterday's results. For a taste of the Crossfit challenge, book an LA 20 Med Ball class and see how you can test your whole body with just one piece of equipment.

5. Group indoor rowing classes

If you like the music and motivation of spin class, you’re going to love indoor rowing. We’re channelling this high tempo trend with LA 20 Rower. It's a more efficient approach to exercise, maximising results with a full body workout and minimising time in the gym with just 20 minutes of cardio.
