FITT Principle is a personal fitness concept that requires the inclusion of frequency, intensity, time, and type of exercise as four elements necessary for a comprehensive and successful fitness plan.

What is Tabata Training?
Tabata training was created by a Japanese scientist named Dr. Izumi Tabata.

True Tabata workouts combine 20 seconds of vigorous activity with 10
seconds of rest in between each set.

We may adjust our timing and intensity throughout the module, but it’s
important to understand the history behind our workouts.

Dr. Tabata’s research showed that even 4-minute workouts using his timing
formula can have positive results on a person’s overall fitness.
