These TikTok Fitness Trends Are Going Viral — And They’re Actually Fun

Scrolling through TikTok has become one of my favorite pastimes, and lately, there have been a ton of fitness trends circling the app. I’ve looked around in search of them and found that these are the most popular.


Weighted Hula Hoops

This trend is one of my absolute favorites because I’ve been doing this for years. When I first got a water hula hoop from Walmart in high school, I was hooked. There are two different types of hoops people are using on Tiktok: the weighted hoop and the smart hoop. Personally, I prefer a standard weighted hoop, and I would recommend you start at a low weight so you don’t hurt yourself or get unneeded bruises.

According to sports medicine professionals, this ab dance actually works, as long as you’re doing it safely. This is one I’m definitely going to be giving a try! Many people on TikTok who have tried this one have seen really great results, but professionals say to start slow and not to perform it more than 3-4 days per week in order to avoid injury.

Bretman Rock Abs-olutely Not Challange

This one is so hard to do on the first day unless you’ve worked up to it with other workouts. Don’t jump right into this and don’t feel bad if it takes you a while to get the whole routine down! Your abs will be on FIRE after the first few steps, so take breaks and don’t push yourself. It will be the best feeling when you finally get it all done for the first time!

This trend, which turned into a movement, was created by college student (now graduate) Mia Lind. To join in on the fun, you’ll have to go on a 4-mile walk outdoors every day and only think about three things when you walk: What you’re grateful for, how hot you are, and goals you want to accomplish. I love how empowering this one is, and I love Mia’s entire message on her TikTok, about embracing women and feeling powerful and confident. I think I will have to join in on this one on the treadmill because I live where it’s 110+ degrees outside, and a 4-mile walk in that doesn’t sound so empowering.

12-3-30 Treadmill Challenge

When I first saw this trend pop up, I was super excited! I prefer to walk on the treadmill instead of running, so I thought this trend was made for me! Then, I tried it… I couldn’t get to 30 minutes at all at first, I could barely get to 5! One major lesson I learned is that you need to build up your stamina for this one. I felt super discouraged at first, but I began to start small and really worked my way up. If you’re wanting to get to this one, I suggest walking at a 2.5 or 3 speed and upping the incline every half minute. That way, you can build up to a 12 incline slowly. Now, after a month, I can walk at 3 speed for an hour at a 15 incline!
