The phrase “Exercise is Medicine” has been well-known. American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) emphasizes the exercise prescription with recommendations of assessment for all occasions and for all. It includes the crucial concepts of FITT-VP, which stand for frequency, intensity, time, type, volume, and progression (pattern). When a physical therapist or trainer advises the subjects, the specific exercise goals would be set as feasible short-term goals. The formation of exercise habits would be more significant even if the goal cannot be achieved. From bio-psycho-social points of view, subjects will be supported by an adequate manner for a successful life with happy sports.
