What’s your forecast for next year’s top Health & Fitness trend? Cast your vote in AUSactive’s 5th Annual Health and Fitness Industry Trends survey before 31 July.
AUSactive CEO Barrie Elvish said the Health and Fitness Industry Trends Report is based on global data and insights from people working in the industry and this survey is a chance to contribute to a national and international research piece.
“The survey is about identifying trends across the whole health and fitness industry, from what people are actively doing themselves at home to what new classes and programs bigger gyms and studios are introducing,” Mr Elvish said.
Australia has been at the forefront of many of the trends in recent years thanks to the growth of different modalities and this year’s survey is a chance to vote again for your anticipated hottest trend of 2024.”
Mr Elvish said the top trends in recent years have varied greatly from fitness programs for older adults to COVID-friendly strength training with free weights.
“Fitness programs for older adults was the top trend last year in Australia and this was also featured in the top 10 of other regions. This reflected exercise professionals and businesses better understanding the importance of catering for the ageing population and developing suitable programs designed to improve their health and quality of life.”
“Functional Fitness Training came in second, thanks to the unique mix of balance, coordination, strength and endurance training, while strength training with free weights rounded out the top 3 in Australia.
“We are looking forward to seeing what the top trend of 2024 will be and are urging all business owners and managers, exercise professionals, allied health professionals and medical professionals involved in the active health & fitness sector to cast their vote.”
