Judging by Google’s newly-released Year in Trends data, the fitness phenomenons that captivated us in 2014 included Insanity, the 7 Minute Workout and burpees (because clearly we are masochists when it comes to exercise).
Off the tops of our heads, we can also cite hybrid workouts (like Piloxing – pilates combined with boxing), Barre Body and aerial yoga as some of the movements that proved to be huge here in Australia.
So how will we be keeping fit in 2015?
We’ve taken a look into our crystal ball to find out. And by that, we mean we asked the people who actually know. Here’s what the experts predict:

1. Healthy workplaces
"Walking meetings, standing desks, hot desking and healthy vending machines will soon be common practice in all workplaces. We are consulting to numerous employers who are becoming more aware of the benefits to their bottom line if they have happy and healthy staff."
2. Tracking technology
"Fitness trackers like Fitbits and Jawbones have been very popular in 2014 and are now even built into your smart phone. These devices make your fitness, sleep and nutrition all easily measurable, they will soon start to have heart technologies built in, such heart rate variability to help track your day to day stress. Watch these devices evolve in 2015 to start to integrate into social networks, have in built rewards programs and gamify for that extra motivation. We are currently working with a number of companies who are white labelling this type of technology for their employee engagement in 2015."
