5: Bodyweight Training
A combination of variable resistance
bodyweight training and neuromotor
movements using multiple planes of
movement, this program is all about using
bodyweight as the training modality.
Bodyweight training often uses minimal
equipment, which makes it an inexpensive
functional way to exercise effectively.
Bodyweight training appeared for the first time
in the trends survey in 2013 (at #3) and was in
the #2 position for 2017 and #4 for 2018.

this survey in 2008, fell out of the top 20 in
2009, but made a great comeback in the 2010
(#14) and 2011 (#11) surveys. In 2012, Yoga
was #11 on the list, falling to #14 in 2013, and
up to #7 in 2015. In 2017, it ranked #8 after
occupying the #7 spot in 2015 and #10 in
2016. Yoga was ranked #7 in last year’s
