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.

We’ve got everyone on your list covered … with Whole Health!

It’s that time of year again — time to make your holiday shopping lists. We’re here to make the task less daunting, because there’s nothing easier, nor better, than getting and receiving the gift of health.

Products by PURE are just right and they don’t require a trip to the mall, nor will their novelty wear off. We’ve listed some of the folks who may be on your holiday shopping list and we’ve paired them with products by PURE that are most likely to elicit a ‘Yes!’ from them on Christmas morning.

  • The person who loves the outdoors – If you have a camper in the family, make sure they have clean water wherever they go with the H2O Filtration System and the Daily pH Plus Filter
  • The fitness enthusiast – Give them a product from our GPS line or the full System! No matter what their activity, help them navigate to their peak performance before, during and after with quality nutrition.
  • The recent graduate – Introduce them to the PURE business to get a head start on developing their income.
  • The traveler – Airports, planes and trains are hubs for germs. Help them keep their immune system strong from the inside with Immune6 and Silver* and from the outside with Skin Defense.
  • The veteran – Let them know how much you care by donating to DAV (Disabled American Veterans), our philanthropic partner, through livepure.com/giveback.
  • The women in your life – Surprise them with the Ciello Advanced Skincare System. This unique airbrush technology delivers peptides and botanical ingredients to minimize signs of aging. Organic Sulfur is another great idea as it may help promote healthy skin and hair.*
  • The health enthusiast – Introduce them to CORE4. These four foundational products — GoYin, HealthTrim° Cleanse, Daily Build and ENERGY — work together to help cleanse, balance, build and focus the body to maximize health.*
  • The PURE Independent Business Owner – The more sales tools, the better! Check out livepure.com for our new GPS Playbook, updated Product Guide for winter, GPS sampling sleeves, and more, and get their business on track for the new year!

  • The chef – They’re always baking up something delicious. Give them a bag of Mila, a bottle of GoYin or perhaps some ENERGY sticks in different flavors. They’ll have fun experimenting with new recipes using these versatile products.
  • The insomniac – If you know someone who has trouble sleeping, they would appreciate some SleepTrim. The unique ingredients will help them fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up refreshed, all while helping to burn calories. CalciuMK+ is also a good choice as it contains ingredients that promote restful sleep.*
  • The artist – Not only will they love the taste of our delicious superfruits and GoYin, but once the beautiful bottles are empty, they’ll enjoy finding creative ways to reuse them.
  • The teacher – Germs can’t stand a chance against Skin Defense, a unique spray that defends from the outside against elements in the environment, like the classroom. It also hydrates the skin while it manages minor wounds. Available in bulk, too, because there’s always more than one favorite teacher.

There’s no better way to show your love than with the gift of health. Products by PURE offer the best of science and nature and deliver real results. They are also convenient for every day use. Looking for must-have stocking stuffers? Place a few ENERGY sticks in every flavor, or some GPS Hydrate or GPS Energize. Give everyone a 2oz. Skin Defense.

Habits that sabotage your weight management goals

Do you feel like you’re making lifestyle changes, but not seeing the results you’d like? There could be many reasons why the scale won’t budge or your clothes aren’t fitting well.

Simple habits like not drinking enough water or not getting adequate sleep can throw off your best intentions. Read on for some common habits that could sabotage your health goals.

Skipping meals: A common misconception is that skipping meals saves calories. Studies suggest that skipping meals is linked to abdominal weight gain.1 People who end up skipping a meal may be already hungry and may not always reach for the healthiest option.

Some people may choose to replace a meal with either 360 Complete Shake or Matcha Vegan Shake. Each 160-calorie serving of 360 Complete Shake features proprietary Craving-Control Technology to help support weight loss. Matcha Vegan Shake is a lean plant-based protein shake that contains 180 calories per serving. Ceremonial matcha, sacha inchi and chlorella offer a nourishing, protein-rich, drink that helps support weight management and sustained energy.*

Try making this Summer Protein Shake for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

Poor sleep habits: Sleep is essential for overall health. It allows your body to rest and repair itself. Poor sleep raises cortisol levels and affects hormones regulating hunger which can affect your ability to lose weight.2 Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep a night. SleepTrim sleep and weight-loss support is a combination of melatonin, herbs and a metabolic-boosting blend that help the body burn calories naturally while sleeping.*

Too many liquid calories: People who drink sugary beverages do not feel as full as if they had eaten the same calories from solid food.3 Calories from pre-made smoothies; coffee with cream and sugar; and sweetened sodas, teas and waters all contribute to weight gain. Consume liquid calories in moderation. Switch from calorie- and sugar-laden drinks to ENERGY drink mix which contains antioxidants, botanicals and natural sources of caffeine, or drink plain or fruit-infused water. If you choose juice, make sure its 100% fruit juice.

Not drinking enough water: Hydrating with water always does a body good. Drinking adequate water helps boost your metabolism, cleanses your body of waste and helps you feel full, which suppresses appetite.

Poor stress management: Healthy living and weight management are not only about a clean diet and exercise program. Chronic stress can undermine health and weight loss efforts. Stress affects your cortisol levels, blood pressure, heart rate, immune function, digestion and hormones and may lead to emotional eating.4 L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, combined with adaptogenic herbs in Metabolic ONE can produce a calming effect, helping to alleviate stress eating. In addition, the ingredients in Metabolic ONE help your body utilize insulin more effectively, helping to curb appetite.* Find different ways to manage stress such as taking walks, doing yoga, calling a friend or seeking support.

Opting for low-fat or fat-free foods: You really aren’t making healthier choices when you purchase these items. As manufacturers create low-fat versions of foods, they have to increase the amount of sugar in them so we still enjoy their taste.5 Manufacturers also add artificial flavoring and processed ingredients. Instead, focus on eating whole foods that contain healthy fats, like yogurt, salmon, raw nuts and avocados.

Check out some healthy recipes here.

Fueling up with energy bars or sports drinks: If you snack on these during exercise, know that many of them pack in the calories and added sugar and are not necessary. Instead, opt for any of our GPS sports performance products which provide energy and support before, during and after your workouts.

Try making these Complete Shake Protein Bars or Lemon Blast ENERGY Granola Bars, for a healthy, filling snack in between reps.

If you are trying to lose weight, and falling short, it’s time rethink your habits and incorporate some of the above tips. And, don’t be fooled if the numbers on the scale aren’t moving down. You may be likely losing inches, and gaining lean body mass, which is a move in the right direction!

  • “That’s a tough one, as I have several! Probably Daily Build. About 10 minutes after drinking it, I can feel it!” – Teena Story, Diamond
  • “When asking to pick a go-to product, and only one, it’s like choosing a favorite child! Each has its amazing qualities; however, I would not go a day without GoYin because it simply makes me feel balanced, helps decrease the morning stressors of getting out the door and helps relieve my tension. It tastes delicious!” – Heidi Taphorn, Diamond
