Welcome to Fit For Footy’s Preseason Training
We thought we would teach you a bit about the app so that you can get the best use out of it.
We designed your running programs to replicate how players train at the AFL and AFLW level. The programs build up during the week and then build up across the 12 weeks of Pre-season. Our goal is to develop your running ability to be able to perform well during the season, but also to ensure you do are less likely to get injured.
The app can be broken down into three parts – Footy, Fitness and Fuel
We have planned which skills are best for you to practice on the various days of the week, based on your running programs.
Fit For Footy have a special section called “Like a Superstar” where on your main training day, you will be taught by a Superstar player of the game.
Click on the instructions shown below your different skills videos so you can read exactly how to do the drill, how to make it harder and the key coaching points you need to ensure you are doing to get the most out of this drill.
The majority of Pre-Season conditioning is focused on running, but there are some bike, swim and elliptical sessions over the next 12 weeks.

It’s important to warmup as instructed. You will do a 5 min jog and then a series of 60m runs at building intensity
For the running sessions it is important to run at the instructed time and intensity. We explain the intensity you need to run at (RPE Scale) below.
At the end of the running session you can measure how far you have run and then compare yourself to AFL and AFLW players.
