    It is not a secret that serious weight loss can sometimes require a full-180 lifestyle. Without taking energetic measures both in your diet and in your exercise routine, it can be much harder to shed stubborn pounds. And if you wonder why you're not seeing the results of going to the gym two or three times a week, it's because it's not enough. If you are really looking to transform your body, there is a magic number when it comes to the frequency of the exercise. See where two coaches agree.

    According to Equinox's personal trainer, Erika Bonifacio, you should train five times a week and launch between two and three days of cardiovascular training. For his cardio-only days, he said that 30 to 45 minutes is enough. "For cardio, I like to use the Airdyne bike, ropes, rowing and curved tape," Erika told POPSUGAR. "For the strength, the free weights and the cables are great!"

    P90X coach Tony Horton shared a similar response and recommended an "equation five to six days a week." Your winning formula to change body composition? Three days of cardiovascular training and three days of resistance. Weight loss is really a full-time job since Tony compares it; appear only a couple of times a week simply will not.
