OP-ED_ Water Royal Commission is the way forward

Water Royal Commission is the way forward

Leaving the Basin Plan will not solve the issues we have with the allocation and management of water in this State. It will not see any more water in our rivers, or return any water back to farmers.

The Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party have been calling for a Federal Royal Commission for over a year now, with the sole intent of untangling the mess water management is in.

The mismanagement of water is destroying our rivers, communities and industries. That’s why myself and Helen Dalton have been pushing hard on pausing the Basin Plan and conducting a Royal Commission.

Top Fitness Trends of 2019 Revealed

Published on Thursday, August 08, 2019

Top Fitness Trends of 2019 Revealed

Are You Ready To Get Physical?

The fitness industry is an immense, thriving, and multi-billion dollar global industry.

From open-platform gyms to sport-specific training studios, there is a seemingly endless amount of different types of training facilities around the world, all with their own perks and benefits.

As every year passes, trends involving fitness training change and as 2019 continues it is clear that a new set of fitness training trends is upon us.

According to meditation expert Jo Amor, “while fitness was previously considered a simple way to stay fit, lose weight and gain some muscles, this is no longer the case. Meditation is just one way that people are entering into fitness outside of traditional gyms or fitness plans.”

Audiences who would never have dared say the word ‘fitness’ is now jumping onboard thanks to the following top fitness trends of 2019.

Top fitness trends for 2019

#1 - Group Training

This type of training has been classified as having more than five participants and includes many types of classes, including cardio-based classes, indoor cycling, dance-based classes, step classes and boot camps.

Group classes are designed to be effective, motivational sessions for different fitness levels with instructors having leadership techniques that help individuals in their class achieve fitness goals.

#2 - Wearable Technology

Wearable technology includes everything from fitness trackers, smartwatches, heart rate monitors, and GPS tracking devices.

Examples include fitness and activity trackers like those made by Fitbit, Samsung and Apple.

These devices can track heart rate, calories, sitting time, distance, steps and much more. Wearable technology first appeared as a fitness trend in 2016 as the use of technology in fitness became more mainstream.

With technology only set to improve, it can be expected to be a major part of fitness for many years to come.

#3 - High-Intensity Interval Training

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) exercise programs involve short bursts of high-intensity bouts of exercise followed by a short period of rest and recovery.

The popularity of this form of exercise is most likely due to the maximal health benefits gained in minimal time, with workouts typically ranging from 10 to 30 minutes in duration.

#4 - Yoga

While yoga has been a feature of fitness for a number of years, different forms of yoga such as Power Yoga, Yogilates and yoga in hot environments have been recognised as growing trends for 2019.

According to the experts at Mukti Freedom Yoga, this reflects the need to find a relaxing break from daily life, saying “while technology has made fitness more accessible and engaging, it can also lead to stress when overused in personal or professional lives. That’s why more and more people are turning to Yoga for the release and relief they need.”

But don’t stress if you’re not a fan of yoga, beer yoga and wine yoga are also trending and may also be emerging as popular choices as the year goes on.

#5 - Active Ageing Programmes

Active aging programmes are for aged people and designed to live to help them live actively as they age.

According to the health experts at Shen Ko Vitality, “people today are living longer and staying healthy and active for much longer than in the past. Baby Boomers and their fellow generations are increasing their fitness activities, and facilities are seizing the opportunity to provide more programming and options catered to them.”

An increase in opportunities for older Australians to engage in healthy programs is not just beneficial to their individual health, but contributes to social skills and combats loneliness, showing how fitness trends of 2019 are more holistic than ever.

#6 - Body Weight Training

Bodyweight training has become increasingly popular over the years as it requires minimal equipment, making it a convenient and inexpensive way to train effectively.

Other benefits include the ability to carry out anywhere, the ability to build strength without investing huge amounts of time, and the effect of keeping the body lean.

#7 - Personal Training

Personal training includes fitness testing and goal setting with a trainer and working one on one with a client to prescribe workouts specific to each client’s individual needs and goals.

Personal training is termed as the most important due to the guidance, accessibility, and ability to correct important movements during each workout. While personal training has long been a popular trend in the fitness industry, it looks set to stay that way.

#8 - Functional Fitness Training

Functional Fitness training involves using strength training and other activities/movements to improve balance, coordination, strength, and endurance to improve activities of daily living.

This trend ties in with yoga and the aging population we have, with fitness being recognised as an important way to help maintain daily functions. In terms of the cutting edge of technology, Cryotherapy and Infrared Saunas are on the rise with passive recovery methods are another up and coming fitness trend.

Cryotherapy is certainly ramping up and it works by surrounding the body with a cold mist for 1-3 minutes. This is a particular favourite of Olympic athletes and models as it decreases cellular metabolism, inflammation, and pain. Infrared saunas, on the other hand, work by producing steam which provides heat which is then absorbed by the skin’s surface.

The infrared rays apparently penetrate skin tissue and heat the body from the inside out, burning up to 600 calories in 40 minutes.

Are you ready to get physical?

With all these great fitness trends, it’s a fantastic time to be engaging in a healthy and active lifestyle.

According to the health experts at Wellbeing Health Retreats, “the state of the fitness and health industry in 2019 has allowed people to start moving towards their fitness goals in a way they never could have previously. From the tech we wear to age-centric programs, an active lifestyle is a realistic goal for people who may have felt left out previously.”

So, however, you see fit to exercise make sure it’s fun as you’re more likely to maintain if you enjoy what you’re doing.
