When you put effort into increasing
physical activity, you want results!
Whether you are a beginner or have a
lot of experience, understanding the
F.I.T.T. principle will help you build your
physical activity program and improve
your health. F.I.T.T. stands for frequency,
intensity, time and type of exercise.
Frequency: how often you plan to
exercise. This can depend on a variety
of factors, such as type of workout,
how hard you’re working, fitness level
and your goals.
Intensity: how hard you work during
exercise. This can determine how fast
or far you should run, how many reps
you should do, and/or how heavy your
resistance should be.
Time: how long you exercise during
each session. This will typically
depend on your fitness level and
what type of workout you are doing.
Type: what kind of exercise you
do. If you want to improve your
cardiovascular fitness, then exercises
like walking, jogging and aerobics
are very effective. To improve your
muscular strength, try free weights,
machine weights and/or body weight
exercises, like push-ups, dips and
