WHAT IS EMS?

Welcome to the Future of Fitness

Let’s start by talking about what Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training is NOT. It is NOT a quick fix. EMS training is NOT a sweat-free experience. And, EMS training is NOT based on false promises or gimmicks. Our clients will tell you their 20-minute session a week is tougher than hitting a regular gym – and gets equal or better results.

EMS allows for 90% of muscles to be activated simultaneously, with the contractions reaching a much higher intensity than those done voluntarily. These impulses are combined with traditional low-impact exercises for an intense full-body workout supervised by a qualified personal trainer. The all-over, high-intensity, low-impact muscle activation makes this a muscle strength and endurance exercise, not a cardio workout.

EMS training also offers a training programme that is supported by extensive research. In short, we use a medically approved device that has the capacity to contract your muscles via an electrical current passed through your muscles for maximum strength training in minimum time.

HOW DOES EMS WORK?

EMS training from BODYTEC is a full body workout that doesn’t only target one specific muscle group. During EMS training, up to 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously and the muscle contractions are of higher quality and more intense than a voluntary exertion can do alone. Compared to conventional weight training, EMS training activates deeper muscle groups which leads to better balance amongst the muscles in the body and increased core stability. The EMS device is able to stimulate multiple muscle groups simultaneously, allowing for a repeated activation of the whole body. You’ll always do your EMS training under the guidance of a personal trainer who can activate eight muscle groups individually (such as the lower back, stomach, biceps and glutes) according to your goals and needs..

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

You’ll feel a difference after your first EMS training session. As your body releases endorphins and as most major muscle groups in your body have been activated, you will experience increased physical awareness, resulting in an improved posture. After a day or two, you’ll feel some muscle stiffness, which is normal and is indicative of your body’s recovery process. Within a period of about 4 weeks, you’ll feel stronger and different muscles will improve to coordinate movements more effectively. After roughly 6 to 8 sessions (6 to 8 weeks) you will not only feel, but also see a visible difference from the EMS training in the form of gradually increased muscle formation and a possible reduction in body fat (depending on your diet). As with conventional training, EMS training should be done regularly to ensure and maintain optimal results.

CAN ANYONE DO EMS TRAINING?

EMS training has been scientifically proven to be effective for people of different age groups and different fitness levels. This means a performance athlete with many years of training experience can train next to a person who has been physically inactive for many years. However, certain medical conditions are known to be contraindications and EMS training is not recommended in certain cases. For some medical conditions, a doctor’s consent might be needed and suitability for the training needs to be assessed on an individual case-to-case basis. Medical conditions* requiring assessment include the following: Circulatory disorders, acute stroke, stent, thrombosis and cardiovascular diseases (i.e. arteriosclerosis) Bleeding, bleeding tendency or hemophilia Diabetes mellitus Abdominal wall hernia or inguinal hernia Severe neurological disorders (i.e. epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis etc.) Acute operation (within 8 weeks, depending on individual case) *Please note: the above list is not exhaustive and if you have any medical condition which could be affected by EMS training, it is your responsibility to inform your trainer and doctor so an appropriate assessment can be made.
