Personal Training Los Angeles


Intensity is defined as something concentrated that tends to strengthen or increase. At IFC, you may have noticed that many trainers train their clients for a half hour and then the client does a half hour on a piece of cardio of their choosing. From time to time we are asked if a half-hour of weight training is enough? Many trainers and facilities provide appointments that are one hour in length, so why the decrepancy?

At IFC, we feel that in order to provide the client with a well rounded exercise program, that truly provides them with the opportunity to succeed in achieving their goals, we must prescribe an appropriate amount of exercise, and exercise intensity, as well as a time frame for the workout that ensures that 30 minutes of cardiovascular work can be accomplished without any shortening of the weight training prescribed. By cutting down on the social aspects of the trainer-client relationship, we can maximize the amount of work accomplished.

The human body has about 30-35 minutes worth of anaerobic energy stored and at the user's disposal. Any longer than that time spent actually exercising can greatly reduce the participants ability to recover from the workout. Remember that it is the recovery process that allows us to improve. Without a proper amount of time for recovery, injury of illness can follow a high intensity workout. This can and usually does set us back from reaching our goals. So in conclusion, If we provide clients with a proper, high intensity workout, we are allowing them to set the framework in place to achieve all their fitness goals.
