ACSM’s 2020 fitness trends
ACSM’s annual survey of worldwide fitness trends is now in its 14th year.
For the last 14 years, the editors of ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal® (FIT) have circulated an electronic survey to thousands of professionals around the world to determine health and fitness trends for the following year.
