There are currently 43.5 million caregivers in the United States ( Family Caregiver Alliance, 2016) who feel the effects of chronic stress. Many of these individuals do not take time out for themselves to de-stress and workout. Currently, 1 in 4 caregivers spend 41 hours on average a week providing care ( Family Caregiver Alliance, 2016) . Caregivers usually feel guilty about even the thought of taking time away from the person they are caring for. The good news is that fitness professionals can make a huge impact when working with this population by providing personal training and wellness services. Fitness professionals can effectively work with caregivers to become more resilient to stress through traditional personal training and implementation of health promotion techniques. Learn some of the signs and symptoms of chronic stress, Compassion Fatigue, and caregiver burnout. Fitness/ wellness programming for caregivers is very rewarding when you notice the positive changes that are made mentally and physically.
