Using the F.I.T. formula will help you meet your fitness goals. F.I.T. stands for:
Frequency – Gradually increase your workouts and vary your routine
Intensity – Keep track of how hard you are working out. If you find that you are out of
breath and can’t talk, slow down.
Time – Keep track of how long each workout lasts. Begin slowly and increase gradually.
Once you have established your fitness program and started to follow your weekly
schedule, take some time to consider the following:

BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATING IN SPORTS
One way to remain fit is by playing sports.
Ask yourself the following questions before you choose a sport:
What do you like about sports?
Do you like the excitement of competing against another person or team?
Do you enjoy mastering a new skill?
Do you enjoy competing at all?
Individual and Team Sports
Individual sports are physical activities you can take part in by yourself or with another
person, without being part of a team. In individual sports:
You can set your own schedule.
You can determine your own level of commitment.
You don’t have to be compared to anyone else.
Team sports are organized physical activities with specific rules, played by opposing
groups of people. In team sports:
You have the companionship and encouragement of teammates and coaches.
Playing against another team may push you to excel.
Attending regularly scheduled practices can
help you become more responsible.
