These Are The Top Fitness Trends For 2019

Want to know what’s about to blow up in the world of wellness come 2019? Well, the American College of Sports Medicine has conducted its annual survey of health and fitness pros to find out. These are the people that saw HIIT becoming the next hottest workout and predicted that spin was well on the way out.
