5 Fitness Buzzwords You Need To Know About

Each year, the fitness world develops new trends to keep everyone on their toes and engaged with exercise and wellness. 2018 is no exception. Here are just a few of the latest buzzwords you need to know about if you want to stay on trend in the fitness world this year.


You can choose from plenty of diet programs on the market, but keto is one of the newest to consider. A ketogenic diet is similar to programs like Atkins, as you’ll be cutting out carbs in favor of protein and fat.

After lowering your carbohydrate intake, your body starts to compensate by going into what’s known as ketosis. In ketosis, your body begins to burn fat instead of sugar, helping you to lose pounds faster.

If you’re considering going on a keto diet, use an app like Lifesum to help you monitor your overall calories, protein, and fat intake. Generally, the ideal balance for a keto diet is 5 percent carbs, 75 percent fat, and 20 percent protein, and tracking what you eat makes it much easier to hit these goals.

Mermaiding is exactly what it sounds like. In this strange and mystical fitness trend, you’ll combine various exercises while swimming underwater with a mermaid fin covering your legs. These classes are popping up at pools across the country and offer you a fun full-body workout.

You’ll work your legs and core to stay afloat, while your arms pedal through the water to burn even more calories.


If jumping around sounds like a better choice than running a 5K, you’ll love trampoline workouts. This new trend involves you bouncing around on a mini-trampoline in your home, and it can help you burn up to 160 calories per half hour.

By bouncing, prancing, and squatting, you can sculpt and tone your calves, glutes, and quads with ease. Just hit the trampoline three times a week, and you’ll start seeing results before long.


While you’ve probably heard of (and maybe even tried out) high-intensity interval training, low-intensity interval training (LIIT) is the new way to go. Rather than pushing yourself as hard as you can go for 15 minutes, try stretching out your workout to 40 minutes and lowering the intensity. For example, instead of doing 100 burpees in a row, try walking around the block instead.

Just make sure you’re still doing activity in intervals. Maintaining a steady pace through your workout won’t be as effective as if you bump up the speed or switch directions every few minutes.


Working out can be hard on your body, and cryotherapy is the latest solution to ease your tired muscles. This trend involves exposing your body to extremely cold temperatures for a few minutes at a time.

This decreases inflammation and pain and promotes cell survival, which all helps you to recover faster.

Make 2018 your year to get fit. Enjoy these popular fitness trends to see real results with your efforts.
