F.I.T.T. Your Code for Success

These four letters can help you remember the key components of a physical activity program and keep you on track.

Frequency:

Measures how often you are physically active. Usually measured in days per week.

Intensity:

Measures how hard your body is working during physical activity. Often characterized as light, moderate or vigorous. It depends on your current fitness level and the difficulty of your workout.

Time:

Measures how long you’re physically active each day. You can do all your activity at once or spread it out in multiple sessions throughout the day.

Type:

Refers to what kind of activity you choose to do. Walking, gardening and playing golf are examples of different types of physical activities.


Always consult with your health care provider before beginning a particular physical activity to see if there are limitations you should consider.
