The Most Popular Workout
Let's start with the predictions for the most popular workout according to each major U.S. city.

However, it won't earn the top spot, since the workout that will far out-strip yoga is strength training. That's right; strength training will be the most popular workout of 2019. It makes sense considering the physical and mental benefits of consistent strength training are varied and significant.
