• All about EMS

EMS – Electrical Muscle Stimulation. The EMS full-body workout activates over 90% of the muscles fibers simultaneously during each contraction!

EMS Explained

What exactly is EMS?

  • EMS stands for Electro Muscle Stimulation.
  • EMS can be described as a highly effective whole body training program that in a training time of less than 30 minutes per week can achieve a variety of muscular training goals
  • The combination of deliberate muscle tension, sport or everyday specific movements and at the same time activating all the major muscle groups creates a completely different stimulus and training is therefore shorter and more intense.
  • The EMS full-body workout activates over 90% of the muscles fibers simultaneously during each contraction!
  • As a result, EMS training produces an effect much more rapidly and effectively than conventional weight training.
  • The training effect with an EMS workout can be up to 18 times more effective than conventional weight training.

How does it work & is it dangerous?

  • During your training session, a machine delivers electrical pulses that stimulate muscle contraction.
  • EMS heightens those contractions, intensifying your workout in a way that your body could not do on its own.
  • Every day our brain sends electrical impulses to our muscles to achieve movement.
  • EMS uses the same natural principle to stimulate your muscles which makes your exercise even more challenging and can help you burn more calories.
  • No, there is no danger of the electric current. The use of low frequency impulse is widely used in training and rehabilitation therapy. EMS uses the natural principle of sending electrical impulses direct to the muscles. However, one should not do EMS if…read more

EMS Benefits

Weightloss

EMS promotes a high level of metabolic activity during, and for many hours after, a training session. The higher your metabolism, the better your body will burn more fat and build lean muscle mass. EMS also boosts the metabolism of intramuscular fat to fuel. As such, body fat levels tend to drop faster and over 650 Calories are burnt per single session.

Time Saving

Less time spent at the gym with more results achieved in a shorter time frame, only 20
minutes per week.

Sport Performance

Strength has a major impact on sport performance. EMS training maximizes the capacity and strength of the muscles. It is an incredibly useful, and time-efficient, program to run alongside conventional training for sports such as competitive cycling, athletics, football and swimming. Provides huge gains for all athletes of all levels, for all sport types as it is excellent for muscle building, toning and general overall performance.

Reduction in Cellulite

When muscles are well toned, they tighten the skins connective tissue lying above the muscle, giving it a smoother, more attractive appearance. Cellulite reduction is also enhanced by the compression effects of wearing the required EMS garments during your exercise program.

Anyone can do it

Easy on the joints, no known side effects with no risk to bone, ligament or tendon injury.

Balance & Core Stability

Improvement of posture and correction of muscle imbalances, EMS can specifically target and train these difficult to reach muscle groups, often causing a noticeable reduction in symptoms and an improvement in overall posture and flexibility.

Flexibility

You choose your time and days of when you want to train, you are not fixed to a specific timeslot. Fully customizable to reach your fitness goals.

Improve blood circulation & lymphatic drainage

This type of training supports blood circulation, as well as ridding your body of metabolic waste improving circulation and skin tone.

Pain Reduction

Back pain is the most common ailment among the general population. Symmetry EMS training targets and strengthens the deeper layers of the torso muscle group which helps alleviate back pain as these deep muscles are difficult to activate with conventional methods.

Post Pregnancy Training

Rapidly lose fat, tighten abdominal and core muscles and also alleviates back pain.

What to Expect with an EMS Session

The session itself is 20 minutes long, it is a full body workout equivalent to 60-90 minutes of high intensity training (it can be adjusted up or down in terms of intensity based on each clients fitness level and comfort-ability).

You put on a provided pair of EMS undergarments (cotton 3/4 sleeve shirt and shorts), over that you wear an EMS vest and shorts (looks a bit like a wet suit). In the suit are electrodes that are positioned in the equipment so that they contact your major muscle groups (abs, biceps, glutes, etc) the contact points in the suit are sprayed with a little water first to allow the current to pass through and activate your muscles.

The trainer will lead you through a series of basic exercises (lunges, squats, planks, etc). While you do this he/she adjusts the level of the EMS machine so that each muscle group is challenged.
