Top Fitness Trends: Strength Training, Bodyweight Training, and more…
This year, three types of strength training have genuinely taken the wellness world by storm. Strength training with free weights, bodyweight training, and functional fitness training. The best part? At the FASTer Way, we do them all!
Strength training and bodyweight training are both forms of resistance training, which is a way of building strength by using either the extra resistance that comes from free weights or simply the resistance your body provides. A free weight is defined as any object or a weighted object that you have complete control over its movement, pace, and purpose while using it. In other words, anything that isn’t a machine or attached by cable such as dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, barbells, etc. As for bodyweight training, you don’t need any equipment since your body does all the work. This can be in the form of squats, pushups, planks, and more.
Both types of resistance training offer a slew of benefits including:
- Promoting lean muscle build which helps you to perform everyday tasks with ease
- Maintenance of stability, flexibility, mobility, and balance so you can remain independent as time goes on
- Increased muscle-to-fat ratio, allowing your body to burn more calories at rest through an improved metabolism
- Increased stamina and energy so you can live every day at full throttle
- Increased bone density and strength as well as decreased risk of certain diseases like osteoporosis
At the FASTer Way, we take the time to implement both these strategies so we ensure the success of your health and wellness journey!
Functional Fitness Training
Functional fitness training is slightly different and has also recently found popularity in the fitness world. Though it’s a type of strength training, it focuses more on implementing basic movements you do almost every day when putting your workouts together. For instance, bending, twisting, lifting, loading, pushing, pulling, squatting, and hauling. These may not sound like movements you do on the daily but think about what it takes to sit down and stand up…or how often you have to bend to pick something up off the ground? In reality, we move a lot more and in many different ways just to get through life than we realize!
Implementing functional fitness training, as we do at the FASTer Way, allows you to improve both your range and ease of motion. Also, by focusing on exercises that involve your knees, hips, spine, elbows, wrists, and shoulders you’re able to take on daily living with a new sense of energy, dexterity, and confidence!

Top Fitness Trends: Programs For All Ages
Fitness isn’t just for people in their 20s - fitness is for everyone, regardless of the year you were born. More and more people are realizing the importance of getting fit. And guess what? The FASTer Way was on this train before it even left the station!
This means we don’t believe in one size fits all. Everyone is beautifully unique in their own way and this includes their needs or what works for them when it comes to burning fat and building lean muscle. We bring the idea of customization and personalization to a whole new level with a program that allows you to sweat with the best of them while accommodating physical limitations, medical conditions, personal metabolic rate, and more!
For instance, we offer modifications to create low impact workouts for those with bad joints or previous injuries. If your metabolism is slower you can guarantee you’ll find just the right whole foods to speed it up with us!
The FASTer Way is also the premier program for women aged 50 and over. We even hold speciality 50s and Beyond rounds regularly, where we specifically work with women in the throes of menopause and provide invaluable tools to make this time in your life a celebration of a new you instead of something to fear or simply get through.
Top Fitness Trends: Online Personal Training
One of the most effective and efficient ways to get fit is taking on a personal coach, and for that reason this is a swiftly growing trend within the wellness industry. Not only does one-on-one coaching help keep you motivated and increase accountability, but it also helps create a fitness plan that's specifically designed with your unique traits in mind. Though easy enough to find at your local gym, the cost is often high and the time constraints are inconvenient for your schedule.
At the FASTer Way, we provide highly qualified wellness experts to guide you through your journey and establish a plan that works for YOU! Gain direct coach-to-client access through our new app platform so you can contact them at any time with questions or concerns. Work together to create health and wellness strategies that fit flawlessly into your daily life and never feel like just another number again!
