Soccer FIT Interval Test

The Soccer FIT Interval Test was created in 2005 by the Soccer Fit Academy, and initially named the CAP (Centers for Athletic Performance) Soccer Specific Interval Test (SSIT). It may also be referred to as the Fitness Interval Test (FIT). The test was designed for soccer, but is suitable for any sport that consist of periods of maximum effort following by periods of slower movement or rest. This test is unique in that it involves varied locomotive patterns, changes of pace, changes of direction and a recovery period. This test is promoted by the Soccer Fit Academy, and its use outside of this group may be limited.
