The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the appearance and development of the Hungarian terminology of wellness, a young discipline which has become known and gained ground in Hungary at a remarkably fast pace. The appearance of wellness includes the spread of a specific vocabulary, full of international lemmata, the foundation of training centres for wellness specialists, and the appearance of the first wellness reference works. The fast development of wellness exemplifies and illustrates the current problems in Hungarian terminology in general. The new role of sports in people's lifestyle choices, interpersonal relationships, and economic progress is also profoundly reflected in language use. The new circumstances with special focus on healthier lifestyle choices and the maintenance of the individual's physical and mental health have resulted in the appearance of wellness as a new and complex discipline. Wellness, as a physical activity, is connected to sports in many ways. The swift integration of an array of various activities geared at lifestyle changes and choices have resulted in the appearance of new institutions with a focus on the integration of sports, recreation, healthy lifestyle choices, and therapeutic methods. Special centres for recreation, spa, tourism, sports, and rehabilitation have been established, which fulfil their mission with the help of specially trained staff, taking local resources into consideration. This multi­disciplinary and complex activity is referred to under the umbrella term 'wellness' world-wide.
