Over the past year, several fitness trends have emerged. People are actually starting to give a damn about themselves a whole lot more.
One thing that’s certain? Fitness will remain the top extracurricular activity for millennials, and the future of technology will have a major impact on the top trends of 2017.
In 2017, specifically, we see the wellness experience becoming even more mobile, so on a phone, app, or tracker, to keep up with the everyday mans crazy schedule and life.
Your phone has become a big part of helping you get the most out of your workouts
Apps will become way more user-friendly
Apps are becoming easier to use and moving away from just counting calories or tracking fitness. Now allowing users to take pictures of their healthy foods and interact with other likeminded people. Motivating one another to reach goals, personal coaching and meal-delivery-service partnerships. Its much easier to build a community and stick your fitness goals now.

Accessibility – I love that word. More people are finding online workout programs that they can use no matter where they are. It allows people easy access on their time and at their level. People are actually finding these apps on their phone that gears them into exercising and becoming part of a community.

Adventurous Fitness App
Many are getting a little tired of the same old fitness apps. Finding adventurous ways to get your fitness on. Technology has opened up a whole new category of fitness besides just taking your workouts outdoors with bikes or hiking excursions. Now many apps are gamified and story-led, which keeps you entertained while you workout!

Now Im definitely not a big fan of the meditation thing – not that I don’t believe in it, its just that I like the word contemplation.
Whenever I feel like reflecting on life, on my goals, objectives or anything of that nature. I just find a quiet spot and just do just that. Im not sure how an app would help in that case but hey the tech world has it all!
