Colours can affect not just your mood, but your workout as well. With Pantone's colour of the year influencing the manufacturing of fitness and wellness equipment, Liezel van der Westhuizen says you may have been noticing a new trend in the products you're seeing and buying.
'Very Peri' - the 2022 colour of the year - was custom-made by Pantone's colour experts to represent their optimistic expectations for our brave new future.
The colour is defined as "a dynamic periwinkle blue hue with a vivifying violet red undertone," affecting an air of mindfulness and warmth.

While not Pantone's intention, the Colour of the Year often impacts a wide variety of industries, including health and fitness companies.
You may have already seen this colour in weights, yoga mats, athleisure wear, and more. But we're all different, and it's important to look around you and take note of how the colours in your space are affecting how you workout.
Listen to Liezel and Africa Melane talk about how colours shape your fitness world in the clip below.
