Haley Shaw is a wellness specialist and public speaker for her company, Amp Up Fitness. Here, she shares her insight on health and wellness trends 2019.
With 2018 quickly coming to an end, we’re already looking forward to all the fitness and wellness trends awaiting us in the new year. Trust us: You’ll want to keep these buzz words in mind come 2019 – prepare to see a lot more of them in the near future. We’re talking collagen, mind-body connection, and virtual training experiences and equipment. See what 2019 has in store for us.
It’s time to get creative with your workout regimen. Affordable virtual reality fitness games and equipment are a thing (seriously). One of the leading exercise equipment companies based in Cesena, Italy and Fairfield, New Jersey continues to provide the best fitness equipment, services, content, and programs for each end-user. Technogym calls this the Connected Wellness Experience because everyone can find their own content, training programs, and compete with others on any Technogym equipment and personal device.
Peloton has changed the industry with its at-home exercise bike, which brings the studio cycling experience to your home, on your time. Peloton helps make every workout effective thanks to its engaging, personalized technology. The social aspect of each ride will have you coming back for more.
No surprise here: It’s looking like collagen will continue to reign supreme in 2019. Around the age of 25, our body’s natural collagen production begins to decline. That’s where collagen comes in, specifically Vital Proteins. Our products help to promote stronger hair, skin, nails, joints and gut. Haven’t tried collagen yet? Vital Proteins boasts a lineup that includes hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides, Matcha Collagen and Collagen Creamer.
Prioritizing Recovery Training
Training and recovering like a pro athlete will become easier in 2019 as gyms, health centers, and apps continue adding features like cryotherapy, infrared saunas, and the power to chat with a health coach, or licensed therapist virtually any time of day. We’re already seeing recovery studios pop up in New York, L.A., and Chicago.
The Mind-Body Connection
Lastly, our wellness trends for 2019 would not be complete without four apps you can take advantage of right now. Whether you have a tracking device like Fitbit or an Apple Watch, or simply want to download an app onto your smartphone, you can do it now!
