Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of EMS training?
EMS training can be found in many facilities including gyms and wellness/beauty centres. Additionally, this technology is often used in competitive sport, rehabilitation and medicine. Elite athletes use EMS along with their training in order to improve their strength and speed.
Physical therapists make use of EMS for joint-sparing muscle formation and for targeted back exercises.
Personal trainers, gyms and beauty centres concentrate on the fitness and beauty aspects of this technology. This includes body shaping through muscle formation and catabolism of fat, stimulation of metabolism and the tightening of connective tissue. This results in the desired aesthetics of decreased cellulite and a more toned/defined body appearance.
When will I notice results?
Can EMS training be used long-term?
Yes it is encouraged! Just like with conventional strength training, you should continue to use EMS regularly. If you stop working out over an extended period of time, the muscles will be reduced to their original status.
Why is EMS training more effective than conventional weight training?
Because EMS activates the muscles fibres in a non-regular order, an intense level of training is enabled right from the start. This creates more muscle fibres at an accelerated rate and results in gaining more muscle. Therefore, the use of EMS training allows for a much more rapid effect with visible results, in less time!

Is the stimulation current dangerous?
How long has EMS technology existed?
Their experiments showed a 30-40% increase of muscular strength through this technology! These studies also proved that minimal physiological and mental efforts need to be utilized to see results in only a short period of time. Back then, EMS training was mainly used in therapy for the treatment/rehabilitation of muscle atrophy and muscle imbalance.
Additionally, it was used in professional sports to improve overall performance and muscle composition in athletes.Today, training with electrical muscle stimulation has become a proven training method which is gaining popularity all over the world.
