5 Eco-friendly training trends

The word ‘sustainability’ gets thrown around a lot. It is important to work out functional ways you can integrate sustainable and eco-friendly practises into your life! 4Core fitness is interested in how our practise can go greener. Here’s our 5 top sustainable training tips!

1 – Train in a group

Training people separately uses separate resources. Come together in a singular space and feel part of something positive. The social aspect of group personal training brings people together with a common interest – to work hard and get fit. Group sessions create great natural energy and are an excellent introduction into fitness for beginners. Even those who usually enjoy solo workouts can benefits from group workouts. It can be challenging to sustain all your exercises when you train alone. Important training elements such as posture can be greatly improved using a second opinion. Take a break from relying on personal knowledge and discover something new. Create energy using less energy.

2 – HIIT and Body weight focused sessions


Ditch the fitness machines and make your workout more sustainable. Body weight and HIIT (High intensity interval training) focused sessions are not just energy-efficient, they are great for building strength, getting to know your body and improving functionality. Health benefits of body weight based exercises include stronger bones and improved blood sugar levels. 

New research by Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise suggests that body weight exercises can even lower your risk of colon cancer by 25%. The colon is found in the bowel and bowel cancer is the 4th most common cancer in the UK. A study published in The Physiology Society found that colon cancer cell growth in colorectal canter survivors was reduced immediately after a singular session on HIIT. Whilst much more research is needed into the benefits exercise can have on serious heath issues, there is no denying that taking the natural route and using what you’ve got as a means to building strong, toned muscle is a no-brainer. 

Check out some of the body weight exercises we get up to in sessions below.

5 – Style yourself sustainably


In 2018 the Fashion industry was dubbed the second largest polluter of our planet largely because of its destructive textile industry. Some of the main contributing areas are cotton production and toxic pesticides as well as company and consumer waste disposal.


Always buy your sports wear or accompanying kit with the intention of your product lasting. Once you are finished with a garment, give it to charity! This creates a sustainable cycle. There are many UK brands designing sustainable gym-wear. Always buy organic products that were made fairly for the person who created the garments. Making small investigations into what you buy into makes more of a difference than you might think.
