4 Fitness Trends That Will Be Huge in 2019
The wellness industry is obsessed with the latest and greatest in healthy-living practices and products. From gyms for your face to throwback workouts making a comeback, here are four fitness trends we think you’ll be seeing a lot of in 2019.
Once the least sexy piece of equipment in any gym, treadmills are experiencing something of a renaissance. Between group fitness classes that incorporate treadmill runs like Mile High Club, Barry’s Bootcamp and Orangetheory Fitness and Peloton’s new and very high-tech tread (which you can have right in the comfort of your home), indoor running has never been hotter, and we don’t expect to see the trend slow down any time soon.
Not content to work out just their bodies, wellness-obsessed folks all over the world have been turning to face gyms. Huh? A face gym is basically a spa-workout hybrid. During a session, a masseuse will use his or her hands and some tools (like flat jade) to stimulate blood circulation and collagen production to give the illusion of a face-lift without the needles. If you’re in the U.K. or NYC, check out FaceGym. Also stateside are Skin Fit Gym in Santa Monica, California, and Face Love in NYC.
Just because you’ve gotten your workout routine down pat doesn’t mean you’re getting the most out of the experience. To make the most of your workouts, think about incorporating recovery training into your schedule. Whether that means cryotherapy, infrared saunas, float tanks or lymphatic drainage (shown above at Shape House), focus on keeping your bod in tip-top shape so you can perform better at the gym.
Inclusive Sizing in Activewear
Fashion brands are finally catering to customers of all size, and activewear labels are following suit. Brands like Outdoor Voices, Old Navy and Nike have all amped up their plus-size offerings, and we’re banking on more retailers following their lead in the new year. And why not? Everyone should be able to look and feel their best while working out.
