Fitness trends this Summer

Everyone wants that summer body, right? What’s in is constantly changing but we can tell that these 2018 fitness trends are going be all the rage as the warmer months start rolling in.

From our old favourites making a comeback to new trends making big waves. These are this summer’s trends that everyone will be talking about. Kit on, let’s go!


You might think that jumping up and down on trampoline is more of a child’s play activity but it is actually an excellent full body workout. So why is it good for you? Well, for starters it’s gentler on your joints than running, it is full body cardio exercise and it gets you all sweaty – oh and it helps with cellulite. Sign me up! The perfect trend to get on board with and get that body, summer ready!

Want go to a class? Some of London’s top fitness studios are jumping (get it) on board and running rebounding classes, including FRAME and Virgin Active – classes are set to music with an instructor to keep you bouncing all throughout your session. Let’s bounce!


While HIIT is not technically a new trend – it’s been around for a while now and we all know how good it is for us but it is such a good workout and should definitely be in your exercise regime for summer. It is short bursts of High Intensity training with short recovery, yes, it’s hard work – but the reward is worth the effort. It boosts your metabolism so you’ll be burning fat long after you’ve finished your HIIT session.

If you want to mix it up, try a mashup of a few different things. Another Space do a HIIT boxing class, or HIIT and Chill at FRAME, hardcore HIIT to start followed by a lengthy stretch and chill session to finish. Head to some of London’s best studios for the best HIIT classes, like Barrecore, Blok and 1Rebel – time to book in and get sweaty!
