Top 100 Sports Trends in September

From Luxurious High-Tech Gyms to Diamond-Studded Soccer Balls

— September 30, 2015 — Lifestyle
These September 2015 sports trends range from high-tech gym concepts to jewel-encrusted gaming accessories. Following in the footsteps of fashion labels who are embracing luxe sportswear concepts, gym owners are also blending sports with luxury by opening fitness facilities that feature hotel-like amenities. In addition to elegant decor, these facilities are tech-integrated and appeal to millennial consumers.

When looking at the month's emerging fitness fads, drum stick workout classes and millennial yoga schools are just some standouts. Following last month's pet yoga craze, ambient, family-friendly and even nightclub-inspired fitness classes are replacing traditional workout sessions and are encouraging a collaborative fitness experience.

These September 2015 sports trends also include tech and fitness wearables that aim to enhance athletic performance and precision while monitoring one's overall health.
