Every year the American College of Sports Medicine creates a list of top fitness trends for that year. It is no surprise that since the beginning of the pandemic the trends have included outdoor activities, home gyms, and online exercise classes. Guess what made the list this year?! Drumroll please …. Health/Wellness Coaching! You can check out more information about all of the current trends here: https://www.acsm.org/education-resources/trending-topics-resources/acsm-fitness-trends
In that article they define Health/Wellness Coaching: “This trend integrates behavioral science into health promotion and lifestyle medicine programs. Health/wellness coaching uses a one-on-one (and at times small group) approach with the coach providing support, goal setting, guidance and encouragement. The health/wellness coach focuses on the client’s values, needs, vision and short-and long-term goals using behavior change intervention strategies.”
I’m so excited that more and more people are enjoying the benefit of having a qualified health coach in their corner supporting, guiding, and encouraging them as they establish new health habits. I consider it an honor to have been able to play a small role in the health transformation of so many individuals. I look forward to seeing this trend continue to rise!
