FITNESS ‘TRENDS’ OF 2019 – Surge Fitness

From group fitness to altitude training, we’re constantly after new ways to get our bodies moving. In fact, 2019 has seen a whole new wave of exercise trends. Here are the top fitness trends of the year:

HIIT (HIGH-INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING)

HIIT has been absolutely huge in the fitness world. As its name suggests, HIIT programs include bursts of high-intensity exercise followed by a short recovery period. As these typically go for 10 to 30 minutes and can be completed anywhere, HIIT is proving to be ideal for those on the go.

SIMULATED ALTITUDE TRAINING

At Surge Fitness, we are excited to say that we are the first health club in Perth that offers the exciting new method of simulated altitude training. The only difference from your regular workout? The change in conditions. Our state-of-the-art facility replicates conditions of up to 5500 meters above sea level to both challenge and enhance your body for better results.

VIRTUAL REALITY

New forms of virtual reality are crossing over into the world of fitness, particularly when it comes to home-based exercise. Think live-streamed workouts, video game workouts and stationary bicycles taking you through virtual worlds. Gone are the days where we’re limited to our physical surroundings. Either way, this trend is definitely one to watch!

YOGA

Yoga has been around for thousands of years, but only in recent years has it started to flourish and take on all-new colourful forms. Be it hot yoga, aerial yoga, doga (dog yoga), paddleboard yoga or even goat yoga… You name it, and it’s been done. Classes and retreats are Regardless, yoga has long been known for boosting one’s mood, muscle strength, posture, flexibility and overall wellness.

GROUP TRAINING

Not only are group fitness classes great for learning new forms of exercise, but they are also naturally more social and motivating – and hence, you might find yourself more likely to attend them. Who doesn’t want to rock up and make some new friends all while working up a sweat? At Surge Fitness, we’ve done all the hard work for you by coordinating a variety of high-energy workouts, so you have countless fun group classes to choose from.

FITNESS ‘INFLUENCERS’

While not necessarily a ‘fitness trend’, fitness influencers are gaining momentum in the digital space and becoming more revered – thanks to quick and dynamic workout videos posted on Instagram. Although this can encourage people to get moving after a scroll through their feed, beginners may be misled to think that such exercise regimes adopt a ‘one size fits all’ approach. While trying out new forms of exercise is always great, it’s essential to find exercises that optimise your body, goals and diet. Our trainers at Surge Fitness are, of course, here to help you achieve this.

Important Information Regarding Your Surge Fitness Membership.

Yesterday’s announcement from our Prime Minister ordering the immediate closure of Fitness Facilities across the nation is significant a blow to all of us across many Industries. We understand that this decision has been based on the best advice currently available to those responsible for our safety and with the Impending state border closures, and increasing community concerns, meant that this decision was unavoidable.

As such, it is with great sadness that we today announce that all Surge Fitness clubs will temporarily close, effective from 12pm today, Monday 23rd March 2020.

At Surge Fitness, we believe that we can make a difference, change lives and build healthy communities. As a brand, we still have a lot of work to do and we all believe that we can continue to positively impact our members and the local communities at large during this time of uncertainty.

Like many of you, our business is facing unprecedented impacts both on our people and our business and we will continue to work through the issues together as effectively as possible.

During this time of closure, all memberships will be placed on complimentary freeze until we are in a position to resume our regular services. Surge Fitness has been working on contingency plans throughout the past few weeks to provide ongoing services to our members such as online & virtual training platforms including numerous resources to help support our members physical and mental health well-being.

Further announcements will be made in the coming days with communications to be published both on our social media platforms and via email once the government has clarified their position regarding the forced closure directive.

On behalf of all of the team at Surge Fitness we would like to thank you all for your ongoing support over the years. As a team we have shared some memorable experiences with you all. Today's forced closure is just a minor setback in our Health & Fitness journey together.
