Some of the common scenarios that I often come across is trainers doing group cardio-type training. It is becoming trendy to combine weights and cardio in every session so the trainees get a balanced workout.

Next year, fitness studios and health clubs will introduce more group strength training sessions in order to meet peoples demands for coach-led training sessions for more motivation and fun. Most of them have planned to divide training programs into different activities ranging from short (HIIT) to lengthy sessions. This will help address the needs of people in advanced, intermediate and basic levels.

There are tons of wearable technology gadgets that one can use to track their fitness workouts. The gadgets range from smart wristbands to activity trackers and heart rate monitors. Hence, wearable technology is all about using gadgets to track a wide range of fitness activities that directly affects a persons fitness condition. Over the past couple of years, the concept of wearable technology has helped many people achieve their health goals.
