This is a great unit to use for all ages before fitness testing. (some stations may need to be modified) Students will perform at their highest level because the fitness goal becomes intrinsic, attainable and real. F.I.T.T. FACTOR is a unit that blossomed from a desire to find a way to get students more excited about fitness and all its wonderful benefits. I start by introducing the F.I.T.T. principle and explain how it relates to everyday life. The unit requires students to perform tasks in a station (circuit) setting. The unit usually lasts about 2 weeks and consists of three phases:
Familiarization (Practice each station) (day 1-3)
Formative (Trials AND QUALIFYING) (Day 4-6)
Summative (COMPETITION / RECORD SETTING) (day 7-10)
Each station has a set of parameters that are the same for every student. The stations also sprinkle in a wide range of other skills. Including but not limited to strength, balance, endurance, flexibility and rhythm.
This kit includes all stations for print and on each station the qualification for competition is stated.
This unit is also great to help students with teamwork and cooperation.
