Fitness Professionals

In its 16th year, ACSM’s annual survey helps leads the health and fitness industry in the right direction. They are the largest sports medicine and exercise science organization in the world.

They have more than 50,000 members dedicated to progressing evidence-based research to advance exercise science and sports medicine.

The ACSM advocates legislators for government assistance for the inclusion of physical activity as a priority in healthcare.

We Continue To Grow

As someone who has been in both the health and fitness industry for decades, I look forward to the industry expert’s forecast each year.

Home exercise is growing, we are happy to be in this realm (prior to Covid-19) with a focus on health!

Trend vs. Fad

Per ACSM Journals:

It is important to state that this worldwide survey of fitness trends done annually is based on trends, not fads.

Trend: “a general development or change in a situation or in the way that people are behaving.”

Fad: “a style, activity, or interest that is very popular for a short period of time.”
