#WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: 2016 Wellness Trends

Today, your quiet war wages on.

Your daily, weekly, lifelong fight against the mundane, the expected, the ordinary continues with no end in sight.

And while I know you must solider on alone, a little help looking, feeling and achieving the part in your personal quest to live the unexpected life can’t hurt.

I introduce to you: wellness trends of 2016 for the workout inspiration or fitspo you require to keep you in gear all year long.

You already know that more people are wearing athleisure on a regular basis, and the super trend is on the rise with companies like Fabletics, an online subscription retailer that sells sportswear and accessories for both men and women. You can choose from a huge variety of styles, fabrics and colors based on your lifestyle and fashion preferences. Ready-to-wear, at your door pieces that go easily from studio to street.

All outfits start at $49.95, and include free shipping. The orders are processed quick within two business days, and returns are easy.

For years, you’ve been turning to sports drinks to replenish those lost electrolytes. But stop…Just stop. Klean Athlete has a better way. It’s the Klean Electrolytes, and they replace the sugary sports drinks with a single pill. Take it with water before, during or after your workout to help prevent cramping and fatigue.

Fitness reboots aren’t just for January resolutions. Wearable tech is getting increasingly popular as a way to ramp up and recommit to health and fitness, with the added gratification of achieving measurable results. OMsignal smart bra is the most comfortable sports bra you’ll ever wear, that will also push your performance to the next level. The data is recorded through a sensor-filled black box that snaps into the lower band of the sports bra, along the rib cage making it twice as accurate as your average tech device. The data is wirelessly shared to OMsignal’s mobile app OMrun such as; breathing rhythm (number of footsteps you take with each foot while breathing in or out), pace, and fatigue levels during running workouts.

The full kit is $149. It will in June on their ecommerce site OMsignal.com, and hits major stores in spring.

Consider the provocative scent of serenity, nonconformity and the good life and you’ll start to have an idea of what YUNI is all about. The 100% all natural yoga-inspired beauty brand was designed to add some zen to your everyday life. After a few applications the idea is that your brain is going to start to evoke the sensation of how good you felt during your workout with the scent of the product. It’s meant for days when you’re headed off-course. The days when others zig, then you zig harder before zagging.

Two of my favorites are the Rinse Body Cleansing Foam $19, and the Muscle Recovery roll on Gel $15 YUNIbeauty.com

BackBeat FIT wireless headphones from Plantronics are all about getting music to your ears without relying on wires. Lightweight. Durable. Free from the annoying shackles of wires. These workout ready, sweat-proof earphones are sturdy as they are small, and you can use them all day because they pack eight hours of playtime on a single charge. There’s a mini microphone embedded in the side. Use them for hands-free phone calls, too. Then use your hands for other things, like high-fifing other people with equally impressive headphones.
