Basic Fitness Principles

Updated: Nov 3, 2021

With the huge amount of information on different training methods out there, there is no consensus on which is the right way to go. Understanding the basic principles of training will help to understand the differences you will find among training programs.


There are two simple acronyms for remembering the main principles of an effective training program.


  • Specificity - sport and individual needs

  • Progression - start at your level and gradually increase

  • Overload - work harder than normal

  • Reversibility - if you don't use it, you lose it

  • Tedium - keep it interesting


  • Frequency - how often

  • Intensity - how hard

  • Time - how long

  • Type - what methods of training
