High-intensity training a hot trend for 2014

HIIT and Tabata type of training are definitely popular.

At this time last year, when the American College of Sports Medicine released its predictions of fitness trends for 2013, high intensity impact training was nowhere to be found.
What a difference a year makes.
With the year coming to a close, the group has once again released its list of fitness routines that are expected to be big in 2014. And the No. 1 spot belongs to HIIT – workouts that involve short bursts of high-intensity exercise followed by a short periods of rest.
It’s a prediction that fitness professionals locally and nationally tend to agree with. After all, reasoned Shannon Fable, who is director of exercise programming for the international Anytime Fitness franchise and who serves on the San Diego-based American Council of Exercise’s board of directors, the workouts usually take less than 30 minutes and deliver “twice the results in half the time.”
