From wearable tech to shorter workouts, these are the next fitness trends coming to a gym near you

The majority of new year's resolutions are based on getting fit or losing weight.

With that in mind, there are so many different trends for how to get fit that it seems we'd struggle to choose just one.

We debunk a few of them here.

Wearable tech

FitBits and Apple watches have become a staple in the gym for many, but they're also perfect to use outside the gym too.

They track your steps and add an extra fitness boost for those who have less time to hit the gym.

Link yours up to a food eating app to check how many calories you've eaten in a day and you'll be fit in no time.

HIIT

High-intensity interval training has been making waves with fitness buffs.

The activity involves quick, intense bursts of exercise followed by a short pause.

The process is perfect for people who workout with limited time.

Boxing

Throwing a punch makes you feel fierce and strong.

So, why give it up just yet? Studies show that more women are spending their exercise time boxing as it provides a great way to get fit and strong.

Live-streaming classes

This is perfect for a workout on the go, or if you're short of time.

By streaming a class, you get all the benefits of feeling motivated and part of a class but without the pressure to be there on time.

We predict this will really take off in the next year.

Shorter workouts

Like HIIT, shorter workouts can be more effective.

If you workout for less time, but using heavier weights the effects are the same as doing a long, lighter workout.

Try for yourself!
