HOW DOES IT FEEL?

EMS is completely and utterly painless – you will begin each workout with a low-intensity impulse that we will increase as you and your muscles warm up and become accustomed to the EMS sensation.   

 

 

IS EMS SAFE?

Yes! The strength of the current used in EMS training is in the lower mili-amp range. This is not disruptive to your normal electrophysiology, and the risk of other injury is remote. Our training principles are in line with the general principles of strength training. Your session will always be at an intensity level that meets your fitness needs—whether you are 19 or 80 and in good general health.


WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM EMS TRAINING?

If you are above 19 and you can physically participate in exercise you may be a candidate for EMS training.

  • Training for Weight Loss – The more muscle you have, the more calories your body burns—even at rest. EMS turbo charges this natural metabolic process!
  • Training for Athletics – Watch your performance improve as you activate deep muscle tissue 
  • Older Adults – Muscle mass starts to diminish after 35 and rapidly after age 60. Slow down this natural process, improve your balance, reduce pain, and greatly improve your overall strength and stamina through EMS technology

WHY IS IT SO EFFECTIVE?

EMS is so effective because the external stimulus activates more muscle fibers than you would otherwise engage during a traditional workout. You can also train all the major muscle groups at the same time. It also can be performed without placing much stress on your joints.  The workout increases the body's production of human growth hormone which naturally declines with age– HGH boosts your youthfulness!

 

 

WHO IS EMS SUITABLE FOR?

EMS is a great way for many 19 and up and who can physically participate in exercise to tone and shape their body, and/or to build muscle. If you have a known medical condition, it is always mandatory that you seek approval from your qualified health care provider prior to starting any fitness activity; exercising with EMS is no exception. 

EMS is not suitable for pregnant women. However, it’s a superb way to tone up again postpartum!


WHAT ABOUT CELLULITE?

Effective anti-cellulite treatment means activity and stimulation – not expensive gimmicky creams. Instead of only treating the surface, EMS activates the muscular and connective tissue in its entirety which leads to better circulation and the reduction of fat cells. The result is a firmer, tighter looking body.

 

 

IS QUICK MUSCLE GROWTH POSSIBLE WITH EMS?

Yes! EMS is effective at rapidly developing muscle mass because it activates 90% of your muscle loop and recruits your deep muscle fibres.
