Up, Coming, and Here to Stay:
2017 Fitness Trends
Up, Coming, and Here to Stay:  

Trends don’t always stick around which makes it difficult to know what to pick up on and what to let lie. Shoulder pads? No, thank you! Skinny jeans? Yes, please! Like in the hair and fashion industries, fad diets and health trends flood the fitness market and then leave a few poor souls crushed in their receding wake.

How Becoming a Senior Fitness Instructor Will Put You at the Top of the Fitness Industry

Every year the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) publishes a forecast of rising fitness trends. In 2015 one of the biggest indicators of significant movement in the fitness industry was the sharp increase in older client participation in fitness programs as an essential component of physician-recommended longevity health regimens. In other words, professional medical advice for seniors is starting to concentrate heavily on exercise.
