Fitness requires a state of mind, goals, and consistent actions. Fitness trends have come and gone, and come again. And for many years, fitness trends centered around gyms and gym memberships.
The idea that fitness requires heavy exercise equipment is fast becoming obsolete. True fitness involves flexibility, stamina, as well as cardio and resistance training. From stretching to working with the body’s natural ability to create muscular resistance with specific movements, the equipment provided at the gym isn’t always necessary.
Many gyms closed as a result of COVID-19, which further supported the idea that fitness doesn’t have to happen in the gym. Many gyms have reopened, and they will continue to reopen. Reopened or not, the mindset of fitness outside of the gym is here to stay, and the most popular 2022 fitness trend is in home fitness.
Comfort & Convenience
Wear what you want. Arrive when you want. Stay as long as you want, and work out on your terms in your space. The comfort and convenience of working out at home is unbeatable.
People also gravitate toward home fitness because strangers aren’t watching them work out, and they’re likely to feel the environment is cleaner than a gym. No matter how well a gym is sanitized, the environment with sweat, skin cells, and labored breathing from numerous people doesn’t sound or feel very sanitary or appealing.
Plus, in the amount of time it would take for you to get dressed and go to the gym, you could have already completed a workout at home. The convenience of home fitness doesn’t stop there. Consider:
- Not needing a babysitter while you workout
- Being able to exercise while you’re on call for work
- Working out between Zoom calls or other work tasks
- Fitting workouts between cooking dinner and family time
- Waking up early to workout without having to drive to the gym
Variety & Customization
The rows and rows of treadmills and ellipticals at the gym don’t provide variety. Weight-lifting machines also aren’t designed for customization. They tend to target one muscle or muscle group at a time. To get the full-body workout, stretching, and cardio you need at the gym, you’d have to make time to use all of the equipment and go to fitness classes.
In stark contrast, home fitness doesn’t pose any of these inherent limitations. Sworkit, the ultimate in-home fitness app, provides variety and personal customization. Choose from over 400 workouts and 900+ exercises to target, train, and enhance your fitness level at your pace.
Work out when you want and how often you want. Receive guidance and suggestions. Create custom workouts and receive the support of personal trainers, all at your fingertips, and all in your home. From one minute to ninety minutes, from stretching and yoga to cardio and strength training, Sworkit fits any timeframe, fitness level, and all fitness goals.
Designed to encourage consistency, the Sworkit app helps you make home fitness a habit. Instead of only making it to the gym once or twice a week, you can open the Sworkit app and work out regularly without the fuss of travel. Plus, you don’t need fancy, expensive exercise equipment that takes up a lot of space in your home. The new home gym simply looks like a room in your home where you have enough space to move around. That’s it!
Fitness doesn’t start and stop when you go somewhere outside of your home, or when you stop or start a membership. Fad diets don’t work for sustained weight loss, and gyms will never provide the true key to fitness because fitness is a state of mind. The fitness state of mind represents a commitment to lifestyle change. Are you ready?
