7 Wellness And Fitness Trends Expected To Be Everywhere In 2024

In an era where wellness culture is constantly evolving, there’s always a new trend promising a path to optimal well-being. From the food we eat to how we move our bodies, it’s clear that there’s more than one way to better ourselves from the inside out.

Thanks to the internet and social media trends, we’ve gained more access to varying types of workouts and wellness techniques than ever before. Whether you spent the year locking in on HIIT workouts or giving Pilates a spin, it seems that the days of one-size-fits-all fitness are a thing of the past. And as we enter the new year, it’s the perfect time to upgrade your self-care and workout routine to one that not only matches your lifestyle but fits seamlessly into your “new year, new me” vibe.

For 2024, we’re all seeking innovative ways to enhance our physical, mental, and emotional health. That’s why we’re delving into some of the hottest wellness and fitness trends for the forthcoming year so that you stay on top of your goals and ahead of the curve.

1.Going Deeper

Leave the small talk for the elevators because 2024 will be the year of conversations that go beyond the surface. In a recent report by Pinterest, “Big Talk” will be the latest way to form deeper connections with friends, lovers, and family. The platform states that “Gen Z and Millennials will drive this trend, searching for new conversation starters and intimate questions to help couples reconnect.” So when it comes to your mental well-being, the more vulnerable you’re willing to go, the better.

2.Mobility Exercises for Longevity

We know, stretching can sometimes feel like the more monotonous part of your workouts, but what if we told you that it could be the key to unlocking a better quality of life? Mobility workouts are exercise routines designed to enhance the range of motion and flexibility of your joints and muscles. These workouts focus on improving the ability of your body to move freely through dynamic stretches, controlled movements, and joint articulations.

In 2024, the incorporation of these movements is set to be the top priority for those looking to increase flexibility, reduce stiffness, and enhance overall functional movement — so don’t skip the stretches.

3.Social Sports 

It’s time to rally up your girls because next year, we’re taking our workouts from solo acts to group activations. Group sports are looking to pick up in popularity, with low-impact activities like badminton, golf, and pickleball becoming all the rage. The need for community is at an all-time high as many individuals seek third places and immerse themselves in a post-pandemic world. With the increasing need for in-person connection, people will find more enjoyment in joint activities than flying solo.

4.Kicking Into Action

When it comes to staying active in 2024, the boxing ring may be what you’re looking for. Pinterest reports that the next great stress reliever will come in the form of taking a few punches and kicks with activities like karate, kickboxing, and jiu-jitsu. Just imagine breaking a sweat all while relieving some pent-up stress — sounds like a win-win scenario to us.

5.Bungee Workouts

If you’ve felt your day-to-day exercises getting a little stale, this new trend might just be what you need to bring the life back into your routines. Bungee fitness is a high-intensity cardio workout that requires individuals to engage their core and legs to maintain control during the airborne and downward phases from a mix of ballet, Pilates, and yoga movements. Bungee classes are popping up all over, so it’s the perfect time to add this new exercise to your fitness bucket list.

6.Digital Detox and Slow Living

It’s safe to say that everyone’s a bit burned out and tired. If it’s not the weight of our everyday responsibilities beaconing for our attention, it’s inflation, global conflicts, and more asking for it. And as the pendulum swings towards mass distraction, it’s bound to swing back in the direction of inner peace and unplugging. That’s why 2024 will be a big year for booking trips that focus on true relaxation and slowing down with little to no noise from the outside world.

These trips aren’t for exploration, they’re for introspection — taking time to recharge and embracing a lazy morning or two. For your next staycation, keep your mental health in mind.

7.Power Pilates 

Pilates was everywhere this year, and in 2024, it’s bringing an even more dynamic routine to your reformer. Power Pilates provides a low-impact, full-body workout that not only strengthens the deep core but also fosters mobility, body awareness, and improved posture while enhancing the mind-body connection. So, if you’re looking to take your Pilates routine up a notch, give Power Pilates a try.

​Tour Interior Designer Annisa LiMara's Organic Modern Meets Midcentury Modern ATL Abode

In xoNecole's series Dope Abodes, we tour the living spaces of millennial women, where they dwell, how they live, and the things they choose to adorn and share their spaces with.

Annisa LiMara has called this space her home for two years. Her Atlanta sanctuary, which she aimed to give the look and feel of something you'd see in the glossy pages of Architectural Digest, embodies her vision of "stunning, yet functional and cozy."

"My home is a reflection of my brand, The Creative Peach Studios, and I am the 'Creative Peach,'" Annisa explains. "It was so easy to reflect who I am and my personal story in my space. When you walk into my home, you know that it is Annisa’s home. I’m so proud of that. So grateful."

Beyoncé at 2024 Grammys

If you followed Beyoncé’s career, then you know how hair has played an important role in her journey. Her mom, Ms. Tina Knowles, owned a hair salon when the multi-Grammy award-winning artist was growing up, and she has shared on several occasions how it impacted her life. We’ve also witnessed her many hair transformations throughout her career, from braids to her signature long, straight honey blonde tresses. However, it was her pixie cut in 2013 that had everyone talking.
