BUILDING A FITNESS PLAN
F.I.T.T. Principles is a excellent way to build a workout plan for any one who is trying to start or currently has a workout plan. This tool can be easily adjusted according to a person fitness level as well as their goals.
F.I.T.T. stands for frequency, intensity, time and type, which boils down to how often, how hard, how long and which type of exercise you are doing. This tool is used for those who have a decent workout schedule to those who seem to just cant find the time to get to the gym.
We always use that time line of a 168 hours in a week and just deduct your weekly tasks such as work, commute, sleeping, etc. and there will be at least five or more hours left in the week for exercise.
We tend to always make time for something that it is that we want to do, right?
I cannot stress enough how this whole thing called exercise is a science and you need to have the correct program and someone to hold you to it.
Your trips to the gym will be less time consuming and you will have a good idea of what you are doing and how you got there so you are not making the same gains and losses year after year. After 30 days are done for the month how many times per week have you exercised?
What you put into your exercise program is what you will get out of it. The most popular question is always, “how long will it take me to lose ten pounds.” You are out of shape and have gained weight, so as long as it took you to get to where you are now then that is how long you need to give yourself to correct it.
