Top fitness trends for 2019

Be adventurous in 2019 and try a new exercise class or a new way to work out. According to the American College of Sports Medicine,1 fitness trackers and group exercise classes will be the top trends of the year. Wearable technology has been among the top trends since 2016 and will be the number-one trend of the new year.

The editors of ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal® conducted their annual survey to determine health and fitness trends for 2019. There were 40 possible trends on the survey, including 25 trends from previous years. The survey was sent to health and fitness professionals all over the world.

The top 10 predicted fitness trends for 2019 are:

  1. Wearable technology. Smart watches, fitness trackers, heart monitors and more, have ranked among the top trends every year since 2016. Get ready to track and monitor your workouts from day one.
  2. Group training. This is defined as any workout with more than five participants. Grab your accountability partner and get moving.
  3. HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training). A HIIT workout, according to ACSM, involves “short bursts of high-intensity bouts of exercise followed by a short period of rest.” They’re usually 30 minutes or less, though they can be longer. You get a quick and very efficient workout, and you can do it from home if you prefer.
  4. Fitness programs for older adults. Exercise is a great way to maintain bone density, making programs like these beneficial for the older population.
  5. Bodyweight training. No equipment necessary; all you need is you! Think push-ups and planks, exercises you can do anywhere.
  6. Certified fitness professionals. Individuals who have been accredited through “educational programs and certification programs” will be first to be hired in the industry.
  7. Yoga. This ancient practice keeps growing, from goat yoga and power yoga to yogalates and hot yoga. What’s next?
  8. Personal training. This is usually done in a gym, but you can also work out with an online personal trainer.
  9. Functional fitness training. This is using exercise to improve balance, coordination, strength, and endurance to make activities of daily living easier.
  10. Exercise is Medicine. Exercise is Medicine (EIM) is ACSM’s own global health initiative that encourages healthcare providers to get their patients to exercise and then analyze their activity as part of their check-ups.

Other fitness trends include exercise health/wellness coaching, exercise for weight loss, mobile exercise apps, mobility devices, worksite health promotion and workplace well-being programs, outcome measurements, outdoor activities, licensure for fitness professionals, small group personal training and post-rehabilitation classes.

GPS performance products are Informed-Sport Certified

If you are an elite or amateur athlete, a coach, a nutritionist or anyone who faces drug testing, you can now be assured that GPS Circulate, GPS Energize, GPS Hydrate, GPS Rebuild and GPS Reset have been Informed-Sport tested and are free of banned substances.

These products have been validated to be free of banned substances through LGC, an anti-doping laboratory organization and are certified through their Informed-Sport program.

Look for the Informed-Sport Certification logo 
on each individual product page on shop.livepure.com and  know you can trust that our products have the highest level of quality assurance behind them.

What is Informed-Sport Certification?

The Informed-Sport program was developed to minimize the risk of banned-substance contamination within sports supplement products. Certification involves:

  •  Completion of a Manufacturing Assessment Questionnaire
  • Pre-certification testing of an agreed number of samples
  • Post-certification testing of every batch of product
  • Additional “blind” independent testing

For more information and explanations of the testing process, visit https://www.informed-sport.com/#view_video.

What substances does Informed-Sport screen for?

Products tested for Informed-Sport certification are screened according to substances listed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). WADA was founded by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to curb the use of ergogenic aids, which would give athletes an unfair advantage. This list includes dozens of substances put into seven categories: androgens, peptide hormones, stimulants, diuretics, narcotics and cannabinoids.

At PURE, we pride ourselves on providing safe, effective, top-of-the-line products to support your personal health goals.

 

In the fast lane with Gray Gaulding

Gray Gaulding, a professional race car driver and PURE Independent Business Owner (IBO) takes his nutrition seriously. You could say he puts it in the driver’s seat.

At the age of 20, Gray is one of the youngest NASCAR** drivers in the field. He combines his love of racing with entrepreneurship, as he started using products by PURE in August 2018 and hasn’t turned back. He represents the PURE brand both on and off the track each week through the Number 08 Chevrolet team. He will do so for the entire Xfinity season and select Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races throughout 2019, debuting at the Daytona 300 next February.

Gray knows the importance of nutrition and hydration to help him perform at his peak. Racing for hours inside his car, which can get very hot, requires a lot of liquids before race time. On top of that, he’s wearing gloves, a helmet and a leather jacket. Gray takes GPS Hydrate to keep those vital fluids, electrolytes and nutrients flowing, a product that also helps him focus and ultimately drive faster.*

Along with the mental aspect of driving a race car, it requires physical strength, too. When you wrestle a car around a track at high speeds, you need focus. There are other cars going just as fast right next to you and things can happen very quickly. To help him withstand these conditions, he puts himself through intense physical training. The mental strength to focus on everything in his car and on the track at the same time is vital to his performance.

“I start off each day with a shot of GoYin in the morning to give me the daily nutrients I need and to get my mind and body balanced before I get started,” he said. “I enjoy the 360 Complete Shake after a nice workout in the evenings. It’s a great product to provide me with protein after breaking down my muscles from intense workouts. But the best part is that the shakes taste amazing!”

In addition to GPS Hydrate, GoYin and 360 Complete Shake, Gray also consumes ENERGY and the entire GPS product line.

Daren Hogge, PURE CEO, shared, “We are thrilled to have Gray join the PURE family as an IBO. It is an amazing opportunity to support such a great young man developing his businesses both on and off the track. Our partnership with Gray will focus on our entire line of nutritional supplements, specifically Gray’s favorite GPS performance products, ENERGY and GoYin superfruit juice.”

Santiago Ramirez, PURE IBO and veteran, has a servant’s heart

Meet Santiago, a PURE Independent Business Owner and Navy veteran. He joined PURE in August 2018 because he liked the products, but he was even more attracted by the company’s philosophy of reaching out and helping others.

Santiago grew up in Miami, Florida. After graduating high school, he did basic training and boot camp, spending time in Virginia Beach training to be an Operation Specialist. He then went on to join the Pre-commissioning Detachment crew in San Diego, California to commission the USS Essex (LHD-2). On board this massive amphibious ship, Santiago operated radar, navigation and communications equipment in the combat information center and on the ship’s bridge.

At the end of his naval career, Santiago was deployed in the western Pacific where he got to visit Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and Australia. After serving four years in the Navy, Santiago returned to civilian life attending school to study marketing and advertising.

Santiago and his wife both enjoy helping others with the PURE opportunity and products, especially veterans, first responders and families who are currently serving in the U.S. Santiago said, “If you are a veteran and enjoy helping others, I would recommend talking to a PURE IBO about trying the products and/or becoming an IBO themselves and joining the community to reach others.”

One important lesson he learned during his time in the Navy was the importance of physical fitness in daily life. To stay fit, Santiago meets up regularly with other veterans and civilians to participate in ruck hikes, marching long distances over varied terrain while carrying a weighted (40-60 lbs.) pack. He is also involved with GORUCK, an organization that leads coordinated events led by veterans of the Special Operations community to help transition military to the civilian world.

To support his health in addition to physical exercise, Santiago uses the GPS product line. He states, “The events offered by GORUCK require a high level of fitness and endurance, and products by PURE have given me the edge to participate at my age. My favorite product from PURE has to be GPS Adapt. It helps me combat mental and physical fatigue.”

Santiago, and other veterans, have given so much and deserve that type of support in return. Here at PURE, we proudly support all veterans and active military. Help veterans and their families by going here where you will find resources to offer support.

Have a “berry” happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving dinner wouldn’t be the same without the cranberry — that quintessential fall fruit that combines a bit of sweet with tasty tartness. Cranberry sauce just might be my favorite dish at Thanksgiving, atop a slice of turkey. I love the smell of cinnamon and citrus that comes from cranberry sauce bubbling on the stove.

Cranberries are only available October through December, but you can freeze fresh cranberries up to a year. Stock up now. You can also enjoy them dried, canned or in juice form (100% juice). Not only are cranberries delicious but they are packed with nutrients.

  • Cranberries are high in fiber.
  • When it comes to fruit, cranberries have the least amount of sugar.
  • They are loaded with vitamin C, a rich source of antioxidants.
  • They have natural detoxifying properties in that they help balance bacteria in the gut.1
  • They contain proanthocyanidins, which may help ease urinary tract infections. 1

These two recipes incorporate products by PURE and are a great addition to your Thanksgiving dinner.

Cranberry Goji Sauce

  • 1 pound of fresh organic cranberries
  • ¼ cup Goji superfruit juice
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 orange, juice and zest
  • Raw honey (add to your desired sweetness)

Rinse cranberries and place in a slow cooker with Goji, water, cinnamon and allspice. Cook on low until the berries soften and break open. Add orange juice and zest and continue to cook until the sauce is the desired consistency. When the sauce is nearly the consistency you want, add honey to taste. Add a little more water as needed. When ready, remove from heat and serve cool. Refrigerate leftovers.

Matcha Cranberry Scones

  •  2 cups flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Matcha Vegan Shake (Vanilla)
  • ½ butter (cold/cubed)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk substitute
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips (optional)
  • Sliced almonds and sanding sugar

Preheat oven to 400°. Sift and whisk the dry ingredients together. Add the butter to the dry ingredients and cut until crumbly. Whisk the wet ingredients together and add them to the dry ingredients along with the cranberries and white chocolate, until a soft dough forms.

Divide the dough in half. Flatten each to about ¾-inch thick. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and place on a greased baking sheet, flattening the sides. Dab the wedges with milk and top with sanding sugar and almond slices. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.

Other ways to enjoy raw cranberries are to add them to cereal or stir into scrambled eggs. Try making relishes with them or make a trail mix with dried cranberries.
