Fitness is more than just a trend. It’s a lifestyle, and one that people are taking seriously. The rise of health and wellness centers, the increase in women taking part in fitness workouts and yoga classes, the focus on mental health among millennials – all these things point to a growing interest in overall well-being. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite trends to watch out for over the next few years:
Health and wellness are all the rage.
The health and wellness industry is booming. More people are taking care of their health, eating better and exercising more than ever before. It’s not just about looking good; it’s about feeling good too!
People want to live longer and healthier lives–and they’re looking for ways to do so. This trend will continue in 2023 as more people become aware of the importance of taking care of themselves physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally in order to maintain balance in their lives.
The rise of health and wellness centers.
These days, there are more than enough options for those looking to improve their physical well-being. If you’re interested in going to a gym but don’t have time for it, many gyms now offer virtual classes that can be accessed through an app or website. There are also many different types of classes available: yoga, meditation, weight loss programs and more! You might find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices available–but don’t worry! We’ve done some research so you don’t have too (we know how busy you are).
More women taking part in fitness, workouts and yoga.
The fitness industry is booming, and women are taking part in it more than ever before.
From using fitness apps to track their workouts to booking a session with a nutritionist, women are becoming more educated about their health and wellness. They’re also more likely to visit a gym or fitness center than men do–and when they do go out for an early morning jog or take an exercise class together with friends? Well that’s just another way for them to bond over their shared interests!
More people turning to nutritionists for help in managing their weight.
More people turning to nutritionists for help in managing their weight.
While many people are able to lose weight, keep it off and maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise alone, some need additional support from a professional. A registered dietitian (RD) or nutritionist can help you develop an eating plan that fits your needs and goals, whether that’s losing 10 pounds or gaining five pounds. In fact, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends working with an RD if you’re looking to lose more than two pounds per week or more than one percent of body fat per week–and these recommendations are based on research showing that those who work with RD’s see better results than those who don’t.*
A focus on mental health, especially among millennials.
As the saying goes, “You are what you eat.” But what about the mind? When it comes to your overall health and wellness, mental health is just as important as physical health. In fact, there’s been a growing movement within the medical community to consider mentality as an integral part of overall wellness–and it’s not just millennials who are concerned with this issue: According to The American Psychological Association (APA), nearly half of Americans have experienced some form of mental illness at some point in their lives.
That said, we’ve seen an increase in programs designed specifically for millennials that focus on mental health–a trend that shows no signs of slowing down any time soon!
Increased use of technology to track fitness levels and diet habits.
Technology has made fitness more accessible than ever before. We can use our phones to track our workouts, measure heart rate and set goals, all while enjoying a convenient app experience.
With this in mind, it’s no surprise that many people are turning to technology to help them improve their health and wellness. Apps like Runkeeper or MyFitnessPal allow users to log their food intake as well as exercise routines–allowing them to see exactly how much they’re eating and burning off throughout the day.
The rise of high-intensity interval training (HIIT)
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a form of exercise that involves short bursts of high-intensity exercise followed by short periods of rest. HIIT workouts can be done anywhere, from the gym to your living room floor and require no equipment other than yourself and a timer.
HIIT has been proven to be an effective way to burn fat and build muscle, which makes it an excellent choice for those looking for ways to get in shape fast.
The active fitness club trend is growing
The active fitness club trend is growing. More and more people are working out at health and wellness centers near me, as well as at gyms, health clubs and active fitness clubs. This is due in part to the rise of physical trainers who can help you get started with your workouts or train you for a specific sport or activity.
While we still see an uptick during the holidays when people set aside their daily routines to focus on themselves (and their loved ones), there’s been a steady increase over time since last year’s list was published.
The yoga trend has exploded in recent years
Yoga is a great way to stay fit and healthy, relieve stress, keep your body flexible, build muscle and improve your posture. Yoga involves a series of poses (asanas) that stretch different parts of the body. By doing these poses you can improve flexibility in your muscles as well as strengthen them.
The best thing about yoga is that there are so many different types available so whatever type of exercise you enjoy doing the most there will be something out there for you!
More people are staying fit than ever before
More people are staying fit than ever before. In fact, it’s estimated that the number of people who regularly engage in fitness and wellness activities will increase by 20% over the next five years.
This is good news! Not only does being active help us feel better about ourselves and our bodies, but research shows that regular exercise can improve sleep quality and reduce stress levels–which can lead to better mental health overall.
The active fitness club trend is growing as well: More than half (56%) of Americans belong to a gym or other type of health club, compared with 47% in 2017–and this growth isn’t limited just to urban areas; rural populations are also getting more involved in these types of facilities too.*
The yoga trend has exploded in recent years: According to Yoga Journal magazine (the leading publication devoted exclusively toward covering all aspects related specifically towards this practice), there were approximately 36 million Americans practicing some form thereof between 2017-2018 alone.*
We are all looking for ways to be healthier and live longer. The rise of health and wellness centers is a great example of this trend, as more people are turning to these types of facilities for help with managing their weight, getting fit or even just getting some relaxation time away from it all.
