With new devices, training methods and expanding fitness chains, the industry stands to evolve very fast and the best part about it is that we are the ones benefiting from these advancements. Here is a list with some of the most promising fitness industry trends throughout the year so far:
This type of training is inspired by gymnastics, parkour, and yoga. Expect to be seeing more people making use of anything they find to build their own fitness regime in parks, gyms and even hotel rooms. The best part about bodyweight training is that everyone can easily customise their routine and thus achieve the specific results targeted.
These intense workouts have become more and more important in the fitness industry the past few years. Being able to fully work out your body at the highest intensity possible for 20-30 minutes in time sensitive lives is now integrated as a lifestyle trend beyond just a fitness trend!

This was a trend predicated a few years ago and in 2015 we have seen a huge push for the group training movement. For fitness enthusiasts it means saving money, increasing social interaction and group motivation perks, and still working with a fitness professional that will guide and assist in basically the same ways as one-on-one training. In 2015 we have seen group training emerge in all facets of the fitness industry and many existing businesses change their business models to cater to the mass demand.
