What you need to know

In today’s health-driven society, commitment to exercise is universal, permitting year-over-year growth of the health and fitness club industry. As a form of exertion, exercise is inherently connected to improving and maintaining physical health. However, benefits outside of physical pursuits, such as mental/emotional wellbeing, are gaining traction as consumers place greater emphasis on multiple aspects of their health. The relationship between fitness and holistic wellness influences how people exercise, where they exercise and their motivations to exercise.
