Better hygiene 

The coronavirus made us all pay better attention to our hygiene. This also happened in the gym and it will still be very important in 2022. You can help gyms with this by cleaning equipment after use, washing your hands often and not going to the gym if you don't feel well.

Online apps becoming even more popular

Online fitness options have been extra widely used this year, and it will not be much different in 2022. Apps, such as MyFitnessPal or Lifesum, allow users to monitor their progress. There are also many apps with workouts and tips for a healthy lifestyle.

Outdoor sports

Outdoor sports have gained more appreciation in 2021 and will continue to do so. A run, group classes in the park and bootcamps will be done more. Have you ever exercised outdoors? If not, give it a try! Exercising in the fresh air makes you feel great.

Mind/body connection

2021 was a hectic year for everyone, which meant we all had to pay a bit more attention to our mental health. Many did this in combination with fitness. 2022 will also focus on this. The popularity of yoga and pilates has already strengthened, but next year will also see other ways of fitness that are more focused on mental relaxation.

HIIT workouts

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is among the most important fitness trends of the past year. You can burn a lot of calories in a short time, with little equipment. There are many work-out videos on YouTube with HIIT workouts for every level. People with busy (work) lives can still get some exercise this way. And if you prefer not to exercise outside, this is an effective way to sweat.
