Fitter, Faster, Stronger, Longer: EFX® Cardio Development Program

Cardio Foundations is a great starting place for new exercisers. Cardio Foundations is the first of three phases in a training journey that guides beginners toward improved cardiovascular fitness. This 6 week program includes three progressive training levels aimed at developing your clients’ aerobic fitness while training their bodies to burn fat during workouts.

Each training level includes a workout description and training template that you can implement and/or share with your client. 

Cardio Foundations: Level 1

A great starting place for new exercisers, this workout helps develop a client’s aerobic fitness base while training his/her body to burn fat during workouts. It emphasizes lower levels of intensity to achieve maximum fat burning, resulting in the foundation of aerobic fitness and endurance. This workout is the first step toward more challenging workouts.

This workout will help clients achieve the greatest rate of fat burning which will improve over time as they transition to Cardio Foundations Levels 2 and 3. It works by maintaining a relatively low intensity in order to allow the muscles to obtain plenty of oxygen from the circulation for optimal fat burning. By improving the fat burning capacity at low intensity, your clients will be able to burn fat at higher intensities as they advance through each phase of the Cardio Development Program.

Core Foundations: Level 2

This workout allows clients to continue to develop aerobic fitness and to train their muscles to burn higher percentages of fat during workouts. This workout cultivates the base established in level 1 by emphasizing lower levels of intensity to achieve maximum fat burning. The Cardio Foundations: Level 2 workout will help your clients achieve the greatest rate of fat burning which will improve overtime as they transition to Cardio Foundations: level 3. It works by maintaining a relatively low intensity in order to allow the muscles to obtain plenty of oxygen from the circulation for optimal fat burning.

In addition to increasing fat burning in the muscles, this workout also serves a foundation for the aerobic base that will further strengthen and develop during Phase 2: Cardio Fitness.

Core Foundations: Level 3

This workout allows clients to continue to develop aerobic fitness and to train their muscles to burn higher percentages of fat during workouts. This workout cultivates the base established in levels 1 and 2 by emphasizing lower levels of intensity to achieve maximum fat burning. It works by maintaining a relatively low intensity in order to allow the muscles to obtain plenty of oxygen from the circulation for optimal fat burning.

In addition to increasing fat burning in the muscles, this workout also serves a foundation for the aerobic base that will further strengthen and develop during Phase 2: Cardio Fitness.
