Top 100 Sports Trends in 2019

From Sustainable Self-Massage Rollers to Adaptable Lifestyle Lines

— January 26, 2020 — Lifestyle
The expansive list of 2019 sports trends highlight a plethora of ways of athleticism, creating products, services, and experiences that make staying active more convenient, safe, and efficient. One example is by Forward with Design -- its new capsule is exclusive to Sportchek. The duo create a capsule that easily adapts to lifestyle including body wipes, deodorant wipes, scrunchies, blow dryer, gym towels, makeup removing wipes, and much more. Notably, these are made with mainly plant-based materials.

Another great sport trend of the year is the Warbler created by 42 Birds -- it is a self-massage roller made from eco-friendly cork materials. This helps athletes correct any muscle imbalance, relieve bodily stress, trigger points, and speeds up muscle recovery.
