Fitness trends can be tough to navigate. There always are some that claim to be the “newest” or “best kept secret” out there, there always will be negative reports to confuse us, and then once we’ve decided what we like…there will always be even more hitting the scene. Yoga, Pilates, and Crossfit – Oh My!
Here is a look into what trends have excited us. No if’s and’s or but’s about it.
Becoming a fitness class regular
Take your pick: Spinning, dancing, conditioning, yoga, Pilates. Being a regular in a fitness class, finding your favorite instructors, meeting workout buddies, and repping your studio’s apparel is all the rage. Getting your heart pumping in a group is a lot more fun than working out alone! Try out some of these classes: SoulCycle, Physique 57, CrossFit, Zumba and Bikram Yoga.

Fun and Fab Workout Clothes
Even though we do love our classic black Lululemon yoga pants, workout clothes full of color and pattern are filling up stores and our closets. If you’re fashion forward, or even just have an appreciation for clothes, why sacrifice looking cute while working out? We love all of the bright color and funky patterns that we have been seeing, and can’t wait to try some of the fashion collaborations for gym clothes. Stella McCartney for Adidas? Yes Please!
There is no stopping the yoga craze. Your practice may now include a Flashdance soundtrack and a DJ if you attend a Disco Yoga class. Why it works? Disco reminds people of love and freedom which is exactly what you want to find with every yoga pose. Plus, we aren’t opposed to wearing yoga pants with peace signs. The yoga hybrid is popping up across the country and we think that yoga will continue to diversify.
