ACSM Announces the Top Fitness Trends for 2014

For the first time in seven years, a new trend has topped the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM) annual list of fitness trends.

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) was named the top trend for 2014, taking the spot from educated and experienced fitness professionals. The list was based on a survey completed by more than 3,800 fitness professionals, and the results were released in “Now Trending: Worldwide Survey of Fitness Trends for 2014,” an article published in ACSM’s Health and Fitness Journal.

Other trends that made the top 10 are body weight training, educated and experienced fitness professionals, strength training, exercise and weight loss, personal training, fitness programs for older adults, functional fitness and group personal training and yoga.
