International Comparisons: ACSM’s Worldwide Survey of Fitness Trends
By Vanessa Kercher, Ph.D., M.Ed., BESS
Through the translation and utilization of the ACSM fitness trend survey, both China and Spain were able to investigate similarities, differences, as well as identify national fitness industry trends compared to the USA. The results show that there is a considerable match between the USA fitness sector and those identified in Spain and China, albeit with a few particular differences. In addition to reviewing trends from the USA survey, learning more about specific trends in China and Spain provides additional information from which one can extract programming guidance that may enhance the integrated approach to developing and delivering relevant programs for individuals, groups, and communities. We encourage Spain, China, and other countries to continue to study the ACSM fitness trends annually and look forward to learning about trends from within their countries in the years to come.
