A 2019 Mindbody Wellness Index Report

Americans have welcomed new types of exercise into their fitness routines for years, and 2019 will be no different. But what specific workouts are Americans excited to try this year? What other fitness trends should we expect to see in 2019?

In the 2019 Fitness in America report, we explore a myriad of workout types, including yoga, strength training, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), Pilates, indoor cycling, CrossFit®, and many more.
