Body Weight Training is #1 Fitness Trend in 2015, Never Thought I’d see That Coming


As you might know or not know, I am pro-High intensity interval training. But low and behold, a study from ACSM has reported data that  body weight training has moved up to the #1 fitness trend in the New Year.

Body weight or otherwise known as Calisthenics has seen a huge spike of popularity in the last few years. With a spike of trainers incorporating it into their strength training repertoire.

Social media has been blasted with videos from the likes of Calisthenics Kings to Bar Brothers of sick pull ups, crazy hand stands, and even the planche push-up (which I still think is physically impossible for my 6’5 frame).

Body weight routines used to be more for the 9-5 worker who wants to get back into functional shape. But it has devolved back into a powerhouse of the most adored types of workouts.


Just for kicks, here are a few other other popular fitness trends of 2015:
