Fittaclub.Org, Sri Lanka (branch of fittaclub, UK), was established in 2006 and is an organisation primary focused on Education for Fitness & Wellness. Fittaclub.Org is currently managed by ScottishOrbit Pvt Ltd., and carries out its main objective through community development projects in several locations as well as diverse awareness workshops, lectures and seminars conducted in various locations and institutions throughout the country.

These target all age groups, all backgrounds both Males & Females. The current CDP coverage is approximately 1000 registered clients and another well over 5000 unregistered clients. Its interesting to note that ‘fitta’ is not merely a word but stands for one of the most vital elements of scientific fitness, i.e. f – frequency, I – intensity, t – time, t – type, a – action. The frequency of an exercise (how many reps), the intensity (what weight to go with the exercise), time used for a single workout (how long), type of exercise (eg; cardio, resistance etc.), and the action of the exercise (the way to do it) are key to a successful and beneficial workout. And that’s what fittaclub focuses on ….. Doing the right thing – the right way!
