Remember a time when people were exercising and weren’t trying to look for ways that they can look like models without doing any work and without even breaking a sweat? Yes, never. This exact strive to accomplish the impossible has given rise to many fitness trends over the years, some of which are flat out dangerous. The following list is in no particular order.
People in the ‘60s were falling for the myth that you can do very little and be lazy while you are exercising. This is how the craze over vibrating bells came about. Maximum results for minimum effort is still a lie many people fall for. The best you can hope for with the belt is a light massage.
Nordic Track machine
The 1980s were a booming time for the fitness industry. This machine is just another trend from back then. You probably don’t have to think for too long to remember someone who had the Nordic Track. This cross-country skiing device basically became the top fitness machine to own.
Not eating a lot of carbs was a popular trend for years in the ‘90s. The body needs a combination of carbs, fat and protein to function properly. Too little of one and too much of another will throw its equilibrium off, resulting in malnourishment, weight gain and muscle loss. Carbohydrates are the body’s No. 1 go-to for fuel. Without it you will eventually lack energy, experience brain fog, and feel depressed and moody. This is not to say you have to eat pasta every day. Opt out for vegetables, fruits and whole grains as the best sources of carbs.
