Changing attitudes to fitness
in the early 20th century exercise and physical activity were not a common topic of discussion. People played sport generally for pleasure and it more increasingly became a career.
the technology revolution over the past 30years has had a major influence on our daily physical activity. e.g
in the 1950's was the first published research regarding the connection between physical activity and improved health.
in 1978 the American College of Sports Medicine conducted a study on the amount of PA needed to improve aerobic fitness and body composition. These studies led to the development of the FITT principles we use today and helped to trigger the fitness boom of the 70's and 80's.
the 'fitness movement' of the 70's recognised that we needed to pay more attention to our fitness for health reason rather than to stay thin.
the movement was driven by fitness classes 'aerobics'
people started to talk about the 'aerobic' concept : that is, that people could improve their health by improving the endurance capabilities of their bodies.
despite this more than 25% of the Australian population lead a sedentary lifestyle.
Fitness as a commodity
the 'fitness revolution' has lead to a gradual growth in the 'fitness business'
as the benefits of PA became more well known people started to realise it could become the source of monetary gain.
The 'fitness boom' became an industry
What products and services are available to consumers?
Through this development of fitness as a commodity people began to look for the 'quick fix'
consumers nee to be vigilant in the products and services they engage with and should use reputable sources, staying clear of fads.
