WHAT DOES FITT STAND FOR?
Every workout takes the FITT Principle into consideration to build a strategic functional program backed by science:
By strategically varying these elements, we can train better for daily life.
GIVE ME THE SCIENCE:
Strength training is technically defined as lifting 60% or more of your 1 rep max, aka the heaviest weight you can perform an exercise at once. For the purposes of at home training, we will focus on traditional strength exercises coupled with endurance to challenge both the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems. Some health benefits of strength training include stronger bones, increased muscle mass, and a higher BMR. Functionally, strength training isn't just for body builders! Think of strength training as your retirement fund. As we age, our bodies naturally lose muscle mass and bone density. This increases our risk of falls, broken bones, and unwanted injury. So by continually putting into this fund of strength, we decrease those risks immensely.
