The Principle of Individual Differences is a principle that states that, because everyone is unique, each person experiences a different response to an exercise program.[1] Some of these differences may be related to body size and shape, genetics, past experience, chronic conditions, injuries and gender. For example, some people need longer recovery time than others.
