    great info guys,
    as a matter a fact i asked one of the trainers in the gym about the same issue and it turns out that ALL OF U R RIGHT IN SOME WAY starting with Natedog::
    in his opinion she is out of shape !! straight out!! he also suggested to check her pulse manually by hand in 15 sec time...X4 to get her true rate,
    aslo he said that the machines might be off for her, to work her slowly for a while till she gets more into goin to the gym consistantly.....
    he even suggested for her to c a physician like the VIKING said......
    so it turns out that all of u were right ....which is great cuz i really didnt kno what the hell what up with her....not to mention that i never trained a girl.....
    and now its kind of a clear picture of what is going on......and im happy to inform that since mon she lost 2 pounds.....which is a good sign
    THANX EVERYONE ....FOR UR HELP AND SUGGESTIONS!!!

What she may have to do is throw THR out the window, and use the RPE scale. (rating of percieved exertion) On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being no effort, 10 being max effort, she should be working around a 6 or 7. She should be able to breathe comfortably and easily carry on a conversation. If breathing becomes heavy, her intensity is too high. In time, she should get a good feel for how intensly she is training. The minimum amount of cardio that should be done to effect weight loss is about 30 min 4x/wk. This is if diet is perfect and she has exceptional genetics for fat loss. Most people need more. upwards of 45 min to 1 hr 5 to 7 days a week. Hope that helps clarify things a little for you.

    Have her see her doc for a stress test. They will hook up real graphical HR monitors while she is on the treadmill. This will help determine if she has a heart related condition. She may have one and never been diagnosed before.

    Easily 80% of weight loss is Diet. I see people all the time busting their ass doing cardio all the time and never lose weight due to their diet. She has to be strong willed to do it with a lot of support from her friends and family. It is very hard to watch your diet when you friends and family are eating Krispy Kremes right in your face I hate that. She needs to get a detailed written diet plan and pre-prep her meals early. That is the only way I can follow my diet plan. Otherwise life gets in the way and when you are in a rush it is so easy to grab something not in the plan.

    One thing to consider is giving her an early wedding gift and pay for her as an internet client for BOBO. I have read plenty of great feedback from his other clients. It is one more thing to look at.
