YouTube sensation DeStorm may be shifting his focus from fitness to music, according to a recent sit-down with VIBE TV, but not before flexing his muscles for another viral video stunt.
While recovering from a leg injury, the fitness guru is hitting what appears to be an Iron Gym to work on his upper body strength. What happens next is pretty hard to believe.

Spoga? Not really, but combination classes are one trend to look out for in 2013, according to <a href="http://www.infinitefit.ca/about/about.html">personal fitness trainer Jessica Zapata of Edmonton, Alta</a>. Zapata says people who love yoga and spinning, for example, can incorporate both types of exercises in one — something she has already seen at her own gym with a class called 'Spinyasa Yoga.' "Other popular ones are spinning class and pilates, those are wait-listed every week," she says.
Get ready to sweat! While already on the radar for the past few years, hot yoga will continue to soar in popularity next year. Composed of yoga positions performed in hot or humid conditions, for 2013, the experts at GoodLife Fitness say this kind of yoga, along with more accessible types, will allow <a href="http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1091325/top-10-canadian-fitness-trends-for-2013">consumers to both exercise and be zen with their minds, bodies and spirits.</a>
Sure, kids are cute, but you probably don't want them in your gym with you. The experts at GoodLife Fitness predict more demographic-specific programming for the year ahead, including targeted classes for older adults, <a href="http://www.goodlifefitness.com/teenfitness/">children and youth, and sport-specific classes for teens.</a>
Small Group Training
Think of it like one-on-one training with five other people. Zapata says small group training (with an average class of six people) will also be popular in 2013, as it will let fitness lovers focus on their individual strengths and goals, while being in a class with others to support them.
Sometimes, you only have 30 minutes to spare. In 2013 (and every year, we would argue) people are looking for the most effective and speedy workout, according to GoodLife fitness experts. Classes like <a href="http://www.lesmills.com/cx30/about-cxworx.aspx">CXWORX, for example, can burn up to 230 calories in 30 minutes,</a> and are being offered at all sorts of gyms. Focusing on the core, as well as the butt, these workouts are meant to hit as much as possible in a minimal amount of time.
TRX is a <a href="http://www.trxtraining.com/suspension-training#">suspension trainer program that uses your body weight to perform a variety of exercises</a> and allows you to control your own challenge levels. "TRX is already popular but it will grow even more in 2013," Zapata says.
Technology And Fitness
Your fitness goals will follow your every step in 2013 — at least if you want them to. Experts at GoodLife predict there will be more apps, computer programs and websites in 2013 that will help both beginners and fitness professionals track their progress levels. For example, <a href="http://www.adidas.com/ca/micoach/">Adidas's miCoach</a> collects cardio movement data and builds targeted training programs for users.
Back To Basics
Zapata also says that 2013 will have people going back to the basics. So yes, those sit-ups, push-ups and jumping jacks you hated in gym class will be showing up at your gym more often. "It's not just going to be about the trends. People want variety and they want results," she says.
It's time for Atkins and the <a href="http://www.dukandiet.co.uk/">Dukan Diet</a> to say goodbye for good. In 2013, people will more likely stick to healthier eating habits than relying on fad diets, says Brad Taylor, <a href="http://www.fitliving.ca/">fitness trainer and owner of Fit Living</a> in Regina, Sask. "People are beginning to see that dieting doesn't work and it takes a lifestyle change to get results."
Experts at GoodLife predict that in 2013, more and more <a href="http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1091325/top-10-canadian-fitness-trends-for-2013">offices will take the initial step to provide wellness and fitness programs</a> for employees both inside the office and out. "With a healthy and active workforce, <a href="http://www.newswire.ca/en/story/1091325/top-10-canadian-fitness-trends-for-2013">Canadian organizations will be able to increase productivity and morale</a>," they said in a press release.
