Experts Say These 6 #Fitness Trends Will Change The Game In #2019
As we’ve kicked off 2019, a topic on our minds (as always) is movement. We’re wondering what will be the next revolutionary way to exercise and how can we take our exercise regimen to the next level in the new year. Here are ‘6 Fitness Trends Changing the Game in 2019’:
✅ Embracing ease.
The practice of ease of paving the way to a more sustainable wellbeing.
✅ Staying active while traveling is now easier.
There will be no excuses for staying fit and healthy while you travel. There is now a higher demand for increased streaming videos on-demand and in-app, which keeps you connected to your team, fitness coaches, and workout buddies—you never miss a fit-beat.
✅ Less is more.
Simplifying is in right now, and I think that’s going to continue to extend to people’s wellness routines. People want simple, easy, no-fuss wellness at their fingertips. We’re going to see more people this year discovering the joy of exercising at home and on the go; consuming less; and cooking with real whole-food ingredients… no adaptogens necessary.
✅ Self-care will be the new workout.
There is a growing general investment in self-care and an interest in slowing down versus speeding up …or taking a calming versus aggressive approach or acting from heartfelt intention versus physique-related ego. The collective community is shifting toward mindfulness and mind-body well-being—from Oprah to big-time corporations to small-town studios. Mental fitness (meditation, mindful lifestyle habits, etc.) will start to be realized as equally as—if not more than—important than physical fitness.
✅ Exercise creates community.
The advances in our digital platforms are great, though you can’t put a value on true connection. Connecting with other like-minded people with a cup of coffee after a workout is a perfect option as we are starved for primal human connection in today’s digital lives.
✅ Play and fitness will come together.
Introducing more ‘play’ into fitness—taking things outdoors, recreational team sports, and moving the way kids do will become vital. Us adults need more play in our lives, and these types of activities engage our neuromuscular system in a different way. It’s also a great way to relieve stress and spend time with friends while incorporating physical activity.
