Unit 6 Economy Will Drive Workout Habits

【中英雙語文本】

Money or the lack of it, changes everything, and that includes how people will be working out in 2010.
有錢或者沒錢能夠改變一切,這其中包括在2010年人們鍛煉身體的方式。

(1) In these belt-tightening times, cost-conscious workouts at home and at the gym topped the list of fitness trends for this year in a survey, followed by shorter, more time-efficient regimens, such as boot camp and circuit training.
一項針對今年健身流行趨勢的調查顯示,在當下需要勒緊褲腰帶過日子的時期,人們將在家和健身房用省錢的方法健身列為首選,其次是強力瘦身訓練和循環訓練這種更省時間的強化鍛煉方式。

"People are looking for ways to accomplish as much as possible with as little time and money as necessary," said Cedric Bryant, chief science officer of the American Council on Exercise (ACE), which conducted the online poll of fitness professionals.
美國鍛煉協會對健身領域的專業人士開展了這一在線調查。該協會的科技總監塞德里克·布萊恩特說:“人們希望能盡量少花時間、少花錢,達到最好的效果。“

"Last year "budget-conscious" was on the list but this year the majority of the respondents put it as one of the top," he added.
他說:“去年,‘預算’被列為需要考慮的因素,但今年大部分受訪者將其列為最重要的考慮因素之一。“

Bryant said some 600 ACE-certified fitness professionals responded to the annual poll, which the non-profit organization has been conducting for a decade.
布萊恩特說,約600名經美國鍛煉協會認證的專業人士參與了這一年度調查。這一非盈利機構開展該調查已有10年的歷史。

Other money-saving measures, such as the shift from personal training sessions to small group training classes and in-home workouts using smaller, more portable equipment, also made the list.
受訪者列出的其他省錢辦法包括從私教課程轉為集體課,以及使用更小更便攜的器材在家鍛煉等。

"Personal trainers are seeing they've got to respond to market needs. Working with two to four clients at a time they can charge less but still get their hourly fee," Bryant said.
布萊恩特說:“私人教練覺得必須跟上市場形勢。他們可以一次同時輔導2-4個客戶,這樣可以降低收費,但仍可以保證收入。“

(2) Boot-camp workouts and circuit training, both of which burn calories while building strength and endurance, will be among the most popular trends in 2010, as time-constrained consumers seek shorter, more intense regimens.
由于人們時間緊迫,耗時少、強度大的健身方式更受青睞,2010年最受歡迎的健身項目將是強力瘦身訓練和循環訓練,這兩種方式既可以燃燒脂肪,又可以增強力量和耐力。

One bright spot is the rise of exergaming-type systems, like Nintendo's Wii Sports, Wii Fit and the PC-based Dancetown. Bryant says the fitness-based video games are turning up in health clubs and senior centers.
健身游戲的興起成為其中的一個亮點,如任天堂的Wii運動游戲、Wii Fit平衡板和需在電腦上使用的Dancetown游戲。布萊恩、特說,健身類視頻游戲越來越多地出現在健康俱樂部和老人中心。

Functional training workouts, which are geared to improving the quality of life and the ability to perform everyday tasks, will remain strong, and the use of computerized tracking and online training and scheduling tools will increase in the coming year.
以功能性訓練為目的的健身將繼續保持強勁勢頭,這種鍛煉方式主要是為了提高生活質量和完成日常工作的能力,此外,計算機眼蹤、在線訓練和排程工具的使用在來年也會增加。
