  • Boxing for fitness@ boxing gloves one over another

The trend became so popular on the back of some of the most distinguished models in the world. Who else but the famous Victoria’s Secret models Gigi Hadid and Jourdan Dunn who are managing to keep themselves in perfect shape as a result of boxing!

Whether you are just hitting the bag or sparring with an actual opponent, boxing involves numerous parts of your body and is also the perfect stress relief for those of us who need to get rid of some tension sometimes. It’s most famous in the USA and now getting into Europe.

You want to follow the trend but don’t know where to go? Don’t worry folks we got your back 😉 TrainAway app will guide you to the nearest gym!




  • Rock climbingA woman practicing climbing on a rocks

Climbing has always been around, but in the past few years it made its way into the world of indoor workout, and in what a way! From something you would do on a summer holiday or a birthday party, it turned into one of the trendiest workouts for the health seekers, especially in the German-speaking countries.

A great benefit of the climbing is the physical strength growth it provides us with. Due to the use of so many muscle groups it is a perfect full-body workout, especially for the abs. Yes, folks, it is the perfect opportunity to turn our bellies into strong, well-shaped abs!




  • Wearable technology

Technology is essential in our everyday lives, and of course, it is becoming as important in our fitness routine. We predict it will become even more of a must-have for the upcoming 2020.

Professional athletes use wearable technology to carry out as optimal a workout as possible. No matter if you are a professional athlete or just a health seeker the wearables are perfect for maintaining your workout and health!



  • Yoga

Yoga is an ancient practice that can be tracked back more than 5000 years. Yoga has many benefits for us both physically and mentally, it helps us keeping our body in shape and making it more flexible but is also used as stress relief.

Its proven physical and mental benefits keep reaching new audiences every year, over and over again, and not surprisingly it looks good on pictures for our favourite social media, the one and only “Instagram”!

On account of that, we predict its boom as a top fitness trend in 2020.



  • Group classes6 beautiful girls wearing yoga pants practicing group exercises

Groups classes have many benefits and we all know that. First of all these classes keeps us being continuously motivated to workout and gain some sweat on the way by awakening our competitive side. Second, the opportunity of being taught by professional instructors. Third and most important the group classes are the perfect opportunity to socialize with the right people. Yes, you know what I am talking about!  : )




  • Indoor cycling A gym room with many Spinning bikes

In addition to the physical benefits, indoor cycling also builds mental health.

Why indoor and not outdoor cycling? We all hate these long and exhausting hills while going on a bike trip, whereas indoor cycling gives us the advantage to control “where” are we biking. Pretty cool right? It seems like health seekers in 2019 also think like this, which makes us believe indoor cycling will be a huge trend in the short future.



  • AvocadoAvocado sliced in half standing on a cutting board

We are all getting as much avocado as we can,  and its also the TrainAway team’s favourite lunch ingredient. Either making a toast, avocado smoothie or just eating it fresh. It is one of the most discussed superfoods on social media with over 2.4 million posts. The rising trend of eating healthy and taking care of our body and new abundance gave life to the avocado.

All that makes it probably the biggest trend among fitness and health enthusiasts.



  • Hiring a Personal TrainerA woman training in the gym with the guidance of a Personal trainer

Working out together with a fitness trainer is beneficial for athletes and enthusiasts from all backgrounds. Whether you are new in the gym world or a regular user, hiring a personal trainer will help you get the job done as fast and efficient as possible. Apart from creating a fitness routine for you, the personal trainer also provides you with the safest possible training, to prevent you from injuries.




  • Sumo squatPeople doing sumo squat

If you haven’t been sleeping under a rock for the past year you must have heard of the famous sumo squat exercise. It’s a great lower-body exercise which gives an extra challenge to your balance, but unlike the basic squat here you leave the knee issues behind by creating an anabolic environment that engages the legs to handle the weight and the core to stabilize the trunk. Which makes it the perfect lower-body exercise and huge fitness trend!



  • Mobile exercise appsA woman getting ready to do Yoga, using mobile exercie app

With the technology ruling over our everyday lives, it makes perfect sense that mobile exercise apps will be a massive fitness trend in 2020.

They are super accessible, all you need is a smartphone and internet connection.

You can use your smart device to buy a professional work out session with a real-life instructor or just do yoga classes when you can’t go to the gym.
