Health and Fitness Trends to Look for in 2017

Over the years, health and fitness gurus crack their heads with new methods, and ways of making an impact within the fitness circle.

Some of the ‘new’ stuff are merely ‘remakes’ or ‘repackaged’ goods. They are not necessarily bad. In fact, they are beneficial for the most part — particularly for beginners. Many trends would fail and lose steam but many would last and even become ‘regular’ of health, wellness, and fitness if they are found to be effective by the masses.

So as you say good bye to the old, unhealthy you last year and start embracing the upcoming year like a breath of fresh air, let’s look at the health and fitness trends expected this year 2017.

Organic Gym

This is a very unique gym equipped with nature-effect interiors and handcrafted gym equipments made of wood, cotton, and rope. This concept was inspired by a fitness guru named Matt Aspiotis Morley, and it’s starting to thrill fitness buffs in Notting Hill especially for those who have a heart for nature.

This is a transformational new approach which reduces stress; boosts calmness and promotes general health. It’s worth a try especially if you’re getting bored with your routine steel-gym sessions.

Wearable Fitness Trackers

Millennials are into the latest technology when it comes to fitness. Most would love to keep track of their improvement and beat their previous records. This is why fitness trackers are the best thing in fitness in this digital age.

A lot of these are available in the market – from strap-on trackers (watches, fitbit blaze, Microsoft band etc), to dri-fit clothes, to shoes, and even smart phone fitness apps. This tech measures heart rate, speed, running time and pulse rate.

Many have become dependent on these fitness tools that they can’t go to the gym without them.

Hotpod Yoga

This is an interesting fitness concept that will surely provide a new experience to yoga fanatics. Hotpod yoga is considered as one of the best hot yoga across UK today.

Classes are inspired by vinyasa flow and it takes place in a giant inflatable, cocoon-like studio. It is heated at 37 degrees, guaranteed to make you sweat, wear off a hangover, or simply to feel relax.

As you emerge from the pod, you feel refreshed, relaxed and with a different kind of strength ready to face the world again but this time with a smile.
