Whatever your workout of choice, here are five fitnesswear trends that are set to take off in 2019…
1. Leopard Print
Animal print was a huge trend on the autumn/winter catwalks, and now leopard spots have leapt into sportswear collections too.
Matching a printed sports bra and leggings is a fierce way to work the trend, or you could pair leopard leggings with a neon top for a pop of colour.

2. Strappy Detailing
In an uber sweaty HIIT or hot yoga class, the aim is generally to wear as little as possible while still having a bit of support – strappy sports bras are perfect for this.
Multi-strap and lace-up details add interest to an outfit, so you can team an intricate bra with plain leggings for an easy activewear update.
Lorna Jane Renew Sports Bra, (AED 231 / £49)
Fabletics Devore Seamless Sports Bra, (AED 122 / £26) (£10 for members)
3. Ballerina Style
Ballet barre classes continue to be hugely popular (who doesn’t want a peachy ‘barre bum’?), and now ballerina style is trending too.
That means wrap tops for warm-ups and cool-downs, soft grey tones and lots of pale pink, so you can plié your way to the perfect derriere.

At the other end of the style spectrum, khaki and camouflage print are here to get you pumped for brutal circuits classes.
Bootcamp veteran? Go head to toe camo. New recruit? Start slowly with a dash of khaki.

Think floral print and sportswear don’t go together? You might change your mind when you see this season’s styles.
Rather than bright flower patterns, dark florals are blooming this spring, with graphic and abstract prints making these monochrome pieces easy to style with your existing separates.
