Fitness Introduction Training (FIT) is a basic bodyweight conditioning program separated into three levels of training, each level is four weeks in length and builds upon the previous one for maximum effectiveness. 

 

FIT is designed for beginner-level individuals who lack the necessary strength and fitness required to begin the Foundation training series. The purpose of this preparation phase is to adequately lay a general foundation of strength for each of the major muscle groups of the body by utilizing the most basic but effective bodyweight exercises available. FIT is the perfect program for those who are currently unable to perform Pull-ups/Chin-ups, Push-ups, and Bar Dips without assistance.
