Periodisation and health-related fitness


Periodisation is not a necessity for health-related fitness; however, because physiological adaptation follows the model outlined by Selye, it is logical to suggest that long-term training programmes for health-related fitness would be more effective if planned in phases, or cycles.


The following table gives an example of how a periodised programme might look for a client just wanting to improve their health-related fitness.


Macro Mesocycle ‘Getting started’


Specific goals To establish a positive new exercise habit


6 months ‘Improving’


To gradually increase duration and intensity until ACSM minimum guidelines attained


‘Maintaining’


To maintain long-term adherence by using varied and enjoyable training
