How Many Times Should I Train A Week to Lose Fat?

People are often asking me how many times a week should I be exercising to lose fat?
A study conducted by Buck et al (2009) looked at the effects of exercise frequency using a subject group of 90 subjects ranging in age from 22 to 74.
The 8 week study compared the fat loss results of the exercisers adhering to exercise frequencies of less than 2 times per week, 3-4 times per week, and more than 4 times per week, with each exercise bout lasting 30 minutes.
The results showed that whilst fat was lost across the board, only those who exercised 4 or more times per week showed a significantly higher change in body fat percentage, with no significant difference between ages or genders.
Whilst this study only examines one variable in reducing body fat, it does indicate the importance of frequent physical activity. Add in a healthy eating diet, the right exercise intensity and type and additional duration and you have the answer to optimal fat loss.
If you are looking for an effective, fun and varied programme that will help burn fat, tone up your muscles, boost your energy levels and improve your strength and fitness then get in touch today at either or
