5 Fitness Trends on the Horizon | adidas

Back to Trending

There are many health and wellness fads that come and go, we’ve seen them pop up on every fitness enthusiast’s radar and quickly disappear. Others though, have longevity. adidas predicts these top 5 trends for what the future of fitness will shape up to be through an intricate, first-ever, wellness poll that surveyed 3,000 men and women.

1. FITNESS WILL BECOME JUST ONE PIECE OF THE HOLISTIC WELLNESS PUZZLE

Movement, mindset, rest, and nutrition: These are the four pillars that make up the collective you.

2. OUR DIGITAL AND REAL LIVES WILL MERGE

Just as with the first prediction, this one has to do with balance as well: In the (near) future, we’ll seek a better balance between our fitness-related social and IRL networks.

3. WE’LL RECOGNIZE THAT WELLNESS IS NO ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL

According to the wellness poll, active people are almost 20 percent more likely than inactive people to say that, when related to fitness and wellness, there is no universal right or wrong.

4. DATA WILL HAVE REAL-LIFE MEANING.

Your 15-minute HIIT workout = 30 extra minutes you get to spend with your friends and family. Doing a meditation session on your app = the patience and insight to have a more productive argument with your partner. Eating a better breakfast = feeling more in-charge in your morning meeting. Soon, all that data you collect via apps and wearables will actually mean something, well, human.

5. YOU WILL BECOME THE EXPERT OF YOUR OWN BODY

In the future, the experts say, we’ll start to curate our own wellness arsenal of “experts,” such as trainers and health professionals, but also our very own friends and like minded individuals.
These are the top shoe styles to start you on your own fitness journey, check them out below.
