From Doormat-Sized Home Gyms to Boutique Rowing Studios

 - Feb 26, 2017
Whether it is workout equipment that can be used at home or boutique gyms for niche exercise classes, the 2017 fitness trends reveal that getting in shape remains a popular New Year's resolution for many people.

One of the biggest innovations highlighted by the 2017 fitness trends is exercise equipment that can be used at home. These devices not only allow consumers to save money on costly gym memberships, but they also offer the flexibility of fitting a workout in any time of day or night. Some examples of these at-home exercise machines include the collapsible BodyBoss 2.0, the wall-mounted Portable Pullup Dip Bar and the travel-friendly Kumo Board.

For those who prefer to hit the gym than exercise at home, there is a significant rise in the number of boutique fitness studios. Many of these studios cater to niche activities, such as the hybrid rowing and pilates workouts offered at Toronto's Nucleo Fitness. Similarly, Clip n' Climb is a climbing gym that turns a popular workout into a family-friendly activity.
