Workouts such as P90x and other DVD videos are popular along with high-intensity interval training style classes such as Tabata.

Nutrition Is Center Stage
People are becoming more aware of what they put into their bodies nowadays. According to Sandy Todd Webster, editor in chief for the IDEA Health and Fitness Association, ”if you can teach a person how to eat well and stop putting unnecessary additives and chemicals into the body, their system will breathe a sigh of relief and start metabolizing the way it’s meant to.” Therefore, there will be a good chance you will start seeing more nutrition-based offerings like food and diet coaching in 2014.
Gyms Go Digital
