With TikTok fitness trends, you feel that you are part of a much wider community.
On top of that, there is music to catch your interest, quite often they can be funny, creative and artistic.

Best TikTok Fitness Trends
There is so much going on with TikTok that all you need to do is search #fitness on TikTok.

The best part of TikTok fitness trends is that they are definitely one of the best places to get people talking about fitness and give a unique way to engage with health and to get people staying active in a fun way.
Let’s take a look at some of the best TikTok fitness trends of recent times.
1. The Grumpy Girl Stomp
A viral TikTok fitness trend that involves walking around in as relaxed and casual a manner as you can, whilst dressing down.
It’s the opposite of the ‘Hot Girl Walk’ trend, encouraging people to throw on whatever they can find to wear and just go out for a good old stomp of a walk.
In terms of its benefits, the Grumpy Girl Stomp trend improves your heart health as a simple cardiovascular exercise that gets the heart pumping, it helps to reduce stress and anxiety through the release of endorphins and gives you great energy levels.
Walking is a great way to get into exercise as it is a low-impact exercise that is easy on the joints.
Going out for a walk also gets you out into the fresh air, which helps you to clear your head from any struggles you may be having.
2. The 75 Challenge
There are two 75 challenges on TikTok, the soft and the hard, both involve following a set of rules for 75 days.
The soft challenge is a good starter as it isn’t as strenuous as the 75 hard challenge.
It includes working out for 45 minutes per day for 75 days in total, with one day dedicated to active recovery, only drinking alcohol socially, drinking three litres of water every single day, and eating a healthy diet.
The 75 hard challenge includes completing two 45-minute workouts every day, following a specific healthy diet, drinking one gallon of water every day, ten pages of a self-help book every day, and taking photos every day to keep track of your progress and to show gratitude.
The 75 hard challenge will help increase your confidence, enhance your overall fitness levels and give you something to realistically measure over time, as you can see how much fitter and stronger you are becoming.
3. The TikTok Treadmill Model Walk
The #modelwalkchallenge is the TikTok treadmill model walk where you strut yourself on a treadmill like a fashionista on a runway at Milan Fashion Week.
Change your posture and move your arms to create more muscle control, whilst it is a fantastic way to improve your balance and coordination as you need to learn how to walk safely in a pretty silly way.
It’s a lot of fun and adds some spice and variety to your workout routine if you include a treadmill.
It also boosts your confidence, and it gives you a great way to focus on improving your posture, throwing your shoulders back and swaying your arms.
For those of you who have found your time in the gym going a little stale and boring, try the treadmill model walk challenge and add your own video to TikTok.
4. The Ab Dance
Another fun way to put some fun into your workout is to look at the TikTok fitness trend the ab dance, it’s a really creative way to do some crunch work.
All you need to do is put on some music and then stand and push your pelvis forward, crunching your abs and tilting your bum back, whilst swinging your arms wildly.
Keep this up for around 20 minutes every day, making it one of your core fitness playlists to do at home.
It helps to work your core, to burn off some of those calories and have loads of fun whilst working out!
5. Primal Movements Workout
This is loads of fun as far as TikTok fitness trends go as it is all about mimicking the movement patterns that have been part of the human race for thousands of years.
The idea is to participate in natural movements, following the 7 primal patterns, including:
- Pushing against an object, like a push up or bench press.
- Pulling an object towards you.
- Squatting as if you were going to sit on a chair.
- Lunge forward with one leg as you lower your body down like you are about to do a split.
- Rotating your body in such a way that you feel the stretch.
- Bending at the hips, movements like a deadlift or kettlebell swing, like a hinge movement.
- Locomotion, such as walking or running, sprinting, or walking lunges.
By incorporating these primal patterns into your fitness regime help to improve your balance and posture, whilst helping build core strength.
It is also a good way to connect your body and mind, removing the sedentary lifestyle that many of us can easily fall into and becoming generally stronger and more mobile.
