What are exercise fads? Should I hop onto these trends? What are some possible exercise fads that I could possibly get ahead of the game on? Don’t you worry your little head. I have the answers to all your questions. Exercise fads have come and gone through the years, with some managing to stick around longer than others. CrossFit is an example of a fad that stuck around so long that it has become a permanent part of the fitness world. People are always trying their best to either stay ahead of the current fads by being the first of the friends to adopt the new ideas, and this article will help you be the “Dude” or "Dudette" of your friend group.
Some of the past fads have been something short of comical with inventions like the infamous “Shake Weight,” which had its own episode on the cartoon TV show Southpark. The entire 20 minute run time focused on how ridiculous the motion that one has to make to get the workout from the device. Sauna suits were another fad that brought more comical value than actual health improvement. The Sauna suit was something that would cover your entire body except for your head, and the suit resembled more of a trash bag than a suit.
Let’s talk about the 2020 exercise fads so far. The beginning of the year was much like any other year with people flooding gyms with their New Year’s resolutions, then people began exercising for the possible World War that America almost started in February. This evolved into at-home workouts leading the charge thanks to A WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC.
Luckily for you I have a pretty good idea on what the next exercise fad that will sweep the nation. This fad will see a lot of
people exercising their “Right to Vote” later this year in all levels of government. This fad will be great for those people who want to see a total change in the health of the community rather than just their own physical health.
Thanks for reading guys and gals, and always remember “Lift Heavy and Grunt Heavier."
