Here then are the top 10 fitness trends expected for 2023: 

1. Wearable technology  

Wearable technology includes fitness trackers, smart watches, heart rate monitors, and GPS tracking devices and includes fitness and activity trackers that can monitor heart rate, calories, sitting time, sleep, and much more. Wearable technology has been the No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3 trend every year since 2016.

An Apple Watch like this one comes with a host of fitness-related features, including a step counter, calorie counter, heart rate monitor, GPS tracking and more.

These devices are used to count steps, monitor heart rates and can track body temperature, calories, sitting time, sleep time and more. Over the past decade, the accuracy of these devices has significantly improved. New innovations on upper end devices include blood pressure, oxygen saturation, body temperature, respiratory rate, and electrocardiogram, among others.

The all-in-one Tonal strength-training system, which is endorsed by Serena Williams and Lebron James, enables people to work out at home.

2. Strength-training with free weights 

Focusing on proper movement and lifting technique, this activity incorporates the use of barbells, dumbbells, and/or kettlebells to improve or maintain muscular fitness by manipulating repetitions, sets, tempo, load, and exercise selection to reach specific muscular fitness goals. People of all ages and baseline fitness levels can benefit from strength-training.
