Entries in Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index (2)


Introducing the Global Well-Being Index Report

To be a successful advocate for healthy lifestyles, you must know the facts and figures surrounding the issue. On September 16, Gallup and Healthways released a first of its kind report on the health and well-being of people worldwide.  

The "Global Well-Being Index Report" is based on more than 133,000 interviews in 135 countries and contains country and regional rankings, analysis of the five elements of well-being (purpose, social, financial, community, and physical), 50 well-being profiles of countries across the globe, industry perspectives on well-being improvement, and recommendations for well-being improvement.

For more insight into the report and its findings, read the Gallup-Healthways press release or download the free report.

IHRSA's weekly web feature, This Week in the Fitness Industry, provides a great service to its readers by whittling down the top news of the week - or, sometimes, couple weeks - into four succinct stories.

Sometimes the story is about one of IHRSA members, while often there are entries on exercise, health, wellness. And, often we will run follow-ups to stories we had run previously.

This week we have a little bit of everything:

  • Panama thriving in Gallup-Healthways ‘physical’ category
  • 10 finalists named in Life Fitness trainer contest
  • No child left inside
  • Are supersets the next big thing?
