The future of fitness in 2017 for me, and maybe you too.

Happy Friday the 13th!  In case you didn’t know, it’s not actually a full moon, that was last night, but it is Friday the 13th and the full moon is still visible and according to folklore that’s a good luck sign.  Or I just made that up.  Either way, Happy Friday the 13th.

It's Friday

Now, let’s talk fitness!

My first choice for fitness is always running but I also enjoy other types of exercise and the benefits that I derive from it which is why I mix it up with yoga, strength training and weight workouts.  I also, like a lot of people, have the attention span of a gnat and if I don’t change up my routine I get bored and exercise becomes a chore.  This is probably why we’re always looking for the next big thing.  It’s exciting, it’s new and it keeps you interested.


I think 2017 will be the year of Instagram and Pinterest WOD’s and HIIT Workouts.

We’re a busy society and these are quick workouts that we can do anywhere and everywhere.  We can do them at home or when we’re traveling.  We can even do them at the office.  They’re convenient and quick but effective.

2017 will also be the year that our work clothes and our workout clothes become interchangeable.   Some of you may be thinking that yours already are interchangeable, especially if you already wear yoga pants to the office on a regular basis, but in my experience most of the yoga pants that I own would never be a welcome sight in most offices.   Quite frankly unless I wore a very long sweater over them they would never look professional in a work environment, and even then it would be a stretch.

These pants by Betabrand are amazing. They are my favorite work to work out pants by far.  They have a Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s look to them don’t they?

Betabrand has a ton of options and any of them could easily go from the boardroom to the yoga studio, dance class or the gym.  These are going to be my new go to pants for travel in 2017 as well.  They are the most stylish, versatile yoga/work pants I have seen to date.

The biggest thing in fitness for 2017 that I’m looking forward to is also one of the smallest things, the Motiv Ring.

It’s not available until March but you can pre-order it now on the website.  I cannot wait to have one those rose gold beauties wrapped around my finger.  You can read more about the Motiv ring by visiting their website here .

What do you predict will be in your fitness future in 2017?

  1. I do three main sports all the time (run, swim, cycle)…I also row and weight train and do yoga. This year I need to get back to more yoga. Last year I tried to “bulk up” a bit and started weight training more seriously. Well, all that time and all that protein and honestly I didn’t look any different. So this year, I was like “screw it” and am going back to 2 days of weights and 2-3 days of yoga to balance out all the other cardio.

  2. I need a color printer. Dude has a nice chest. 😉

    I might look into those pants. I’d want to fly in them. Pants are hard for me. I’ve got too much ass.

    It’s been soong since I’ve ran. Cold weather, traveling have messed me up.

    • Cold weather only works for me to a point and by point I mean a point below 60 and then below that, I’m staying in bed, hehe. I think those pant would be perfect for big booty girls and that’s exactly why I want em. Plus the style, have you ever seen yoga pants that stylish? I seriously have never. By far, my favorite.
