F.I.T.T Plans = FIT bodies.
If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve tried a variety of different workouts, exercise classes and 30-day challenges. All of which you’ve either become bored with or have fallen out of the habit of completing. The purpose of a F.I.T.T plan is to provide you with a structured exercise template. It needs to be re-evaluated every 6-8 weeks, ensuring you have an ‘off week’ to recharge and prevent yourself from becoming obsessed with an exercise plan, here’s how it works.
How often do you need to exercise per week to achieve your goal?
I = Intensity
How intense does each session need to be to achieve your goal?
T = Type
Which type of exercise/ class/ sport will you complete to achieve your goal?
T = Time
How long does each session need to be to achieve your goal?
Implementing your plan
A successful plan MUST be personalised to you to factor in 4 essential elements;
Your current ability.
Below is an example of a FITT plan we use to support our members. After 6-8 weeks on their plan, we will re-test to measure their progress and create a new plan to get them to the next level.
The importance of an ‘off-week’
An ‘off-week’ is a completely unstructured week providing our members with either; guilt free rest and recovery or the freedom to try a new class, or new activity – like nature hikes or open water swimming. This off-week is essential for mental as well as physical wellbeing. No-one, not even athletes train all year round. Every 6-8 weeks your body and mind need a break from structured training so that your muscles can fully restore and your motivation can recharge.
