Top 4 wellness trends in 2021
2020 left much to be desired to say the least. Finally, we can see some light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccine is being spread all over the world as we speak and hopefully, we’ll see the results of it soon enough.
A lot has changed in the world, where the wellness industry is not an exception. New wellness trends have gained traction and in some cases completely changed, possibly forever, the wellness and well-being industry.
In this article we’ll cover the latest health and wellness trends that are on the rise within the industry.
1. Touchless spa / Safe spas
The “touchless spa” is one of the wellness trends that has gained the most traction as of all lately. High-touch services are simply a very high concern. Instead, touchless services such as cryotherapy, compression therapy, salt caves, infrared saunas, IV drips, hyperbaric chambers and float tanks are becoming increasingly popular.
It’s a way for consumers to relax and recover without any additional contact during the pandemic.
2. Virtual fitness
In line with both with the development of our society and the current situation in the world, virtual fitness is one of the latest wellness trends that has taken the world by storm. Gyms, fitness studios, personal trainers and spas have started investing heavily in the virtual space to enable and help their customers stay healthy in their own home.
We also believe this is one of the health and wellness trends that’s here to stay. Virtual fitness is commonly offered at lower price points, requires no commute time and will be able to be performed wherever you are as long as you have an internet connection. We believe this wellness trend will continue to develop and very soon become a natural part of the wellness industry.
3. The “snack” workout
The “snack” workout refers to shorter workout sessions that’s becoming increasingly popular due to the fact that workdays are more fluid than ever before. Work, wellness and childcare are all happening at the same time, in the same space all throughout the day.
People are grabbing every chance they can to get a quick workout in before the next obligation rear its ugly head.
4. Outdoor workout
Calling it a “wellness trend” might be somewhat of a stretch, but outdoor workouts have become increasingly popular due to covid-19. No matter where in the world you are, we’re certain your government has issued some sort of formal restriction about public gatherings indoors. This includes everything from social gatherings, to restaurant visits as well as working out in the gym.
Gyms, spas and other wellness establishments have begun expanding their offering of outdoor services to allow their customers an option to be able to work out with others outside of your home without being at risk of contracting covid.
What’s next to come?
2021 has only just begun. New health and wellness trends spring up like mushrooms each and every day. The four above mentioned wellness trends are only just the beginning.
