Top Fitness Trends For 2017
If a jog along the same route every day or a self-led session at the gym just isn’t quite cutting it, it’s probably time to mix up your exercise regime to keep things fresh and fun! Buy activewear from HyperLuxe’s extensive range of, luxe clothing and accessories and get motivated to move by trying something new.
Read on for a wrap up of 2017’s biggest fitness trends to keep you on track with your health goals.
Given our penchant for all things digital, it’s no surprise that wearable technology continues to be the top fitness trend for 2017! Whether you’re a swimmer, a runner or a cyclist, HyperLuxe is home to an array of wearable tech that will help you to get the most of your workout.
If a pre-work swim is part of your daily ritual there’s no going past the Garmin Unisex Swim Watch. Water resistant up to 50m, this amazing piece of tech tracks your distance, pace, stroke count and more, sending the data direct to Garmin Connect for online analysis.
Runners will love the Garmin Forerunner 35 GPS which counts steps, calories, distance and intensity while also monitoring your sleep patterns. Slim and lightweight, this sleek design automatically uploads your data to Garmin Connect - a free online fitness community where you can join challenges, receive insights and share your progress as you meet your goals.
Sport junkies who prefer to jump between running, cycling, swimming and golf won’t be disappointed by the Garmin Vivoactive HR GPS. Boasting a high resolution colour touch screen and a rechargeable battery that lasts up to eight days, the Vivoactive HR GPS will track your activity during the day and your sleep patterns at night to ensure you’re getting enough rest.
Dance Based Classes
Work out while you twerk out with a dance based exercise class! Perhaps one of the most enjoyable fitness trends for 2017, dance based classes help you to burn calories while getting your boogie on to summer’s hottest tunes.
Here at HyperLuxe we’ve fallen in love with The Jungle Body’s Konga classes. Available at countless locations across WA, Konga is a high intensity mash up of boxing, cardio and dance set to the hottest tunes by babes including Beyonce and Rihanna. Suitable for all levels of fitness, Konga is the funnest way to burn up to 700 calories in 60 minutes!
Another great dance inspired workout is Xtend Barre. Fusing ballet, pilates and sculpting exercise, Xtend Barre offers a whole-body workout for women seeking a long and lean physique without added bulk. There are a wide range of Xtend Barre classes available in WA - check out the Green Goodness website for a rundown on classes across the Perth metro area.
Ensure your feet keep up with all of the fancy footwork in Konga and Xtend Barre with a new pair of sneakers from HyperLuxe. Built for maximum comfort, the Adidas Cosmic Sneaker offers superior ventilation and a cloud foam midsole which provides responsive cushioning with every step.
Or, add sparkle to every dance move with the Adidas X Stella McCartney Barricade Sneaker. Designed for ultimate agility, this style also boasts 360 degree engineered support for improved comfort and maximum flexibility.
Ditch your expensive gym membership and exercise in the comfort of your home with bodyweight training. Designed to be done without the need for any gym equipment, bodyweight training uses your own weight as a resistance against gravity.
Most of us are already doing bodyweight training without even realising it - common exercises include push-ups, pull-ups, squats and sit-ups.

High Intensity Interval Training
Time poor fitness fanatics have been raving about High Intensity Interval Training (otherwise known as HIIT) for some time now. Rather than exercising at a moderate pace for a longer period, HIIT prescribes quick bursts of exercise with a higher heart rate to burn more calories in a shorter period.
Not just good for you while you’re doing it, HIIT boosts your metabolism so you’ll feel revved up for up to 48-hours after you’ve finished your workout.
As HIIT will get your ticker going faster than usual, it’s a good idea to speak to your GP before undertaking this style of exercise regime. It’s also important to remain hydrated while doing HIIT - fend off thirst and look good doing it with a S’Well blondewood water bottle.
Want a rig like Kim K? Then it’s time to tackle to the Megaformer!
Touted as the first machine to combine strength, endurance, balance, core training and flexibility in one device, Megaformers are basically pilates reformers on steroids!
Available at LA Fit Studio in Northbridge, Lagree Fitness is total-body conditioning method that uses the Megaformer to burn up to 800 calories in 45 minutes (no wonder Kim looks so good)! Using a system of springs and pulleys, the Megaformer works your entire body to effectively stimulate your muscles.
Find out more about classes involving the Megaformer via the La Fit Studio website.
Ensure you’re primped and preened for a Kim K worthy workout with a new active outfit from HyperLuxe. Match a stylish pair of shorts of leggings - we’re currently loving the new Nimble Swift Woven Run Shorts in Mono Jungle - with a hot crop top, like the Nimble Emily Racerback Crop to stay cool while working up a sweat.
