Exertion Ouput Values

This is the effort you can expect to spend in each workout. It revolves around four key areas with a emphasis on output percentages and quality heart rate production, no matter the fitness level rating. It should be your goal to gradually progress to a higher RPE Intensity rating, and a high Fitness Level rating per workout.

1       Repetitions

The number of repetitions outlined for a set, multiplied by the expected days per week. We put a value on the rep count inside the type of workout, and add a higher value when more days are presented.

2       Conditioning

Centered around movement, we add a 50% percent value of what a competitive athletic would expect for an exertion output. The goal is build a wider base of anaerobic then progress to deeper aerobic effect.

3       Heart Rate

Knowing your heart rate zones is not mandatory, but beneficial, therefore our workouts are designed to provide an effective zone so your body can manage oxygen intake, carbon monoxide excretion and efficient recovery. Expect a range of 60 – 90% of your normal age's maximum beats per minute.

4       Max One - RM

Commonly known as a one rep maximum, there a numerous ways to value and depends on the type of activity or event you're planning for. We aim to keep you just below 85% of the normal maximum weight load for the average business professional, which is in a range of 40 – 50% of a competitive athlete.
