Which Fitness Trend Got You Moving in 2009?

Boredom can kill a workout routine. To keep us moving, new fitness experiences are forever being invented. Here are a few trends from the last year.

Reebok teamed up with Cirque du Soleil to create Jukari, a trapeze-based workout to entice you to move and swing. On the other end of the spectrum, everything old is new again with the Cross Fit phenomenon gaining traction this year and getting more women lifting big weights. There's also the techy side of things and all the iPhone apps to help you get fit, but many folks this year were suspended with the TRX system — it has been around a while, but I know so many people that tried it for the first time this year, me included. Fitness shoes, like Skechers Shape Ups and Reebok Easy Tone, continue to offer the promise of a workout with every step. Even the ancient practice of yoga is being reinvented with a circus twist — antigravity yoga offers a grounding experience while upside down.

Have you tried any of these trendy classes? If not, which class do you most want to try? Vote for your favorite fitness trend of 2009.

Holy crap, antigravity yoga?! Wow. Anyways I have to admit, the firmer butt and thighs thing Reebok had going on made me wanna run. :P Ironically though I just picked up some 50% off Pumas haha. The Easytones are expeeensive. Oh maybe some other time~

I do crossfit sometimes when I don't have any ideas and just want to have a workout planned for me. Those are hard core though! Yikes!
