Consistent weekly exercise is important to your long term weight loss success. Your exercise plan includes a cardiovascular warm up and a series of different conditioning exercises designed to help you build muscle while burning fat. As you build muscle mass, your body will become more efficient at burning fat. Muscle is where most of the mitochondria ("fat-burning furnaces") are in the body. That muscle mass may cause an offset or slow down in your total pounds lost, but your body will get smaller. The same amount of fat takes up much more space than an equivalent amount of muscle, but you'll have a higher level of metabolism, meaning you'll burn more calories even when you're relaxing.
It's important to keep in mind that the most effective workout program is the one you complete.

Your exercise plan consists of 3 different programs broken into three different 4-week phases: Start Up, Intermediate and Advanced.
Start Up is a 3 or 4 day per week program (depending on your level: A or B) created to allow people who are out of shape or just getting started to get active to start seeing results fast. Incorporating both resistance training and cardio, each day is slightly different than the one before it, ensuring you never plateau and your body keeps making serious and consistent progress.
After the Start Up program, you can progress to the Intermediate (12 weeks) and then Advanced (12 weeks) program if you choose.
