F.I.T.T. Principle

F.I.T.T Principle

The FITT Principle describes how to safely apply the principles of overload and progression: Frequency Intensity Time Type (specificity) Frequency. Frequency is how often a person performs the targeted health-related physical activity. For each component of health-related fitness, a safe frequency is three to five times a week. Intensity Intensity is how hard a person exercises during a physical activity period. Intensity can be measured in different ways, depending on the related health-related component. For example, monitoring heart rate is one way to gauge intensity during aerobic endurance activities, but gives no indication of intensity during flexibility activities Time. Time is the length of the physical activity. As with the other aspects of the FITT principle, time varies depending on the health-related fitness component targeted.
