FITT PLAN2FITTness PlanImproving one’s health consists of having a balanced nutritional diet and improving their physical fitness. The combination allows for a maintained healthy weight and quality of life. Onemeasure to ensuring this concept is met from a fitness standpoint is using the acronym FITT (Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type). The criteria that make up what one needs to perform to achieve the principles of FITT are as follows; Frequency is described as the “number of times per week you need to engage in particular exercise to achieve the desired level of physical fitnessin a particular component” (Donatelle, 2015). Intensity described by Donatelle (2015), referred to as how hard the workout must be to achieve the desired level of physical fitness. Time is described as how many minutes or repetitions of an exercise are required at a specified intensity during any one session to attain the desired level of physical fitness for each component (Donatelle, 2015). The physical fitness components that the FITT principle should be used for consists of cardiorespiratory fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. Cardiorespiratory as stated by Donatelle (2015) is most effective by performing total body exercises involving the large muscle groups of your body. Muscular strength is generated by wayof resistance training which is the process of building and maintaining muscle in the body by using progressively heavier weights (“Getting FITT with Strength (or Resistance) Training,” 2014). Conversely, muscle endurance is “the ability to repeat muscle movement over a period of time without fatiguing” (Donatelle, 2015). Flexibility is the release of tension in muscle and pressure on joints. This form of training reduces the incidence and severity of lower back problems and muscle or tendon injuries.
