🔥HOT🔥 Fitness & Diet Trends For 2020

2020 is fast approaching. Many of you are beginning to think of what 2020 will bring you in the new year. You may start a new years resolution or you simply want to continue your progress from 2019. Either way, you're not going to be able to ignore these fitness and diet trends of 2020.



Living in such an amazing digital era, we have a plethora of information at our fingertips. This sounds like it can be a good thing. However, too much information can be incredibly confusing. That's where I come in. I have been successfully personal training clients in Sevenoaks for nearly a decade. I've seen some crazy trends like the Atkins, carnivore and bulletproof coffee come and go. But there's always been a mainstay, an underlying anchor that keeps the best trends around for longer than Christian Grey's sausage staying in his pants.


Let me expose said trends.


Fitness Trend for 2020


Intense Yoga. Yoga has been around for 100's of years. It had a boom back in the 70's with Southern California kicking it off. It's had it's up and downs during the years, however, after returning from Goa 2 years ago there's a current bread of yoga teachers coming through from an array of different backgrounds.


Gone are the days where it would be a group of grey-haired ladies laying on the floor stretching. Now we have got professional sportsman using yoga as their cornerstone of training.


The foundational principles of yoga can be combined with any aspect of health and fitness. Take for example myself. I use yoga to keep my back condition at bay. I teach yoga to some of my clients that are runners. This helps them open up there stride so the can run faster. I know goalkeepers that do yoga to help them reach further. Whether it be from swimming to football the professional world is slowly tapping into this so-called "fountain of youth".


It's not just the movement of yoga that has such increasing benefits to your body. It's the breathing too. With the popularity of mindfulness during this decade ever increasing. This has led more people to yoga for its ability to calm and compose your mind during stressful times. Proper breathing techniques help lower your blood pressure and increases oxygen throughout your blood, thus helping your body recover faster.


What do I mean by "intense yoga". Typically a yoga session lasts between 1-2 hours long. In my eyes, this is far too long for someone in this modern-day to achieve. Our lives are hectic and we need something achievable.


With my clients, I condense 1 session into a strong, supple and relaxing 45 minutes. This is just enough for you to get all the benefits of yoga while succeeding in other aspects life throws you.


This approach gives you a powerful toned body while burning fat and keeping you super flexible. This means you can achieve the aesthetics of HIIT training while keeping your body safe from high impact exercises. It's a win-win. In my mind yoga is going to be HOT in 2020.


Diet Trends for 2020:


I may be biased with this one but there's ONLY 1 one part of the health industry that is growing RAPIDLY and that's the plant-based vegan diet,


I've been vegan over 4 years now and to this day it's been the best thing I could have ever given my body. The evidence is snowballing. Whether it be the World Health Organisation to The American Health Insitute. All the evidence shows that leading a plant-based vegan diet helps prevent 14 of the 15 leading causes of death. The one exception being suicide.


You now won't just survive on a vegan diet. You thrive on a vegan diet. And over the past years, many of my transitioned clients will testify to that. If you haven't read my health guide with a plant-based vegan diet then click here.
