Frequently Asked Questions
EMS stands for Electric Muscle Stimulation. Technically, EMS is a total body workout with body current. In this context, it might be helpful to know that our muscles contract through electric impulses (bioelectronics) in normal state. The EMS training makes use of this effect. By employing external electro impulses, the natural effect is additionally intensified and an effective training can be achieved.
EMS training is used in gyms, wellness and beauty centers, as well as in competitive sports, rehabilitation and medicine. Elite athletes use EMS in addition to 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 centers concentrate on the fitness and beauty aspects: body shaping by way of muscle formation, catabolism of fat, stimulation of metabolism and tightening of connective tissue.
Yes. You should workout long term and as regularly as you would with conventional training. The strength of the muscles can only be maintained by training regularly. If you do not workout over an extended period of time, the muscles will be reduced to the original status. Just like with conventional strength training.
The EMS full-body workout activates over 95% of the muscles fibers at the same time during each contraction! As oppose to conventional weight training, deeper muscles are demanded. That enhances intra- and intercellular coordination. Therefore, the training produces an effect much more rapidly and effectively than conventional weight training. The training effect with EMS training can be up to 18 times better than with conventional weight training.
No. Training using low-frequency current stimulation is not dangerous. Why? Our muscles work constantly. During this process, small intrinsic electric pulses initiate every movement. During the training with current stimulation, this pulse is simply fortified by the additional pulse from outside. Therefore, the impulse does not seem foreign to the body.
You do not need any special requirements in particular. Every healthy person can make effective use of EMS. Just in specific cases of pre-existing conditions or acute sickness, which exclude heavier physical loads or sport, doing EMS training is not allowed. That includes acute febrile diseases or the wearing of a cardiac pacemaker etc. All possible contrary indicators will be excluded in a personal conversation prior to the training.
Leisure time is valuable – too valuable to spend on time-consuming and ineffective training sessions. EMS combines the aspect of saving time with effective training without any compromises. Only one 25- minute training session a week is sufficient for seeing results in just a few short weeks
While the muscle works, the local congestion is intensively stimulated. The increased blood flow has a positive effect on the skin, the body is toned and cellulite can be reduced effectively. After the training, you will feel relaxed and refreshed. EMS training also improves the physical performance: you feel more flexible, healthier, and you tire less quickly. Compared to conventional training, EMS offers the advantages of an intense workout in much less time.
Yes. In the first phase of the training, you will lose centimeters and in the second phase, fat depots are attacked. You will also burn more calories in everyday life because of the increased muscle activity, which means that the energy consumption increases. Thus, the training success is amplified and in addition size and weight are reduced. EMS training is a perfect complement to a dietary change in order to support weight- and size loss effectively.
You already feel energized and revitalized after the first training session. Visible changes, such as a better posture usually adjusts within just a few training sessions. Size loss, Strength increase and improvement of your skin’s appearance will permanently be measurable or visible within four or six weeks – of course always depending on the physical condition at the beginning of the training and nutritional behavior. We recommend one to two 20-minute training sessions a week at the most.
For almost every woman Belly Butt and Legs are usually a main concern. Gloss magazines promote a clear image of women with perfect skin, clear lines and a female silhouette that does not match most women. The EMS training offers a gentle and lasting improvement. It brings the trunk and leg muscles in shape, revitalizes connective tissue and improves or even eliminates cellulite
EMS training makes a lot of sense for couch potatoes. It encourages exactly this group of people to exercise again, who have not done sports in years; therefore, it is a good start to incorporate exercise and bring momentum and motivation into your daily life. You get to know your body better, the joy of physical activity returns and you feel how and when every muscle is activated.
Yes. You can achieve maximum success with EMS training that cannot be achieved with conventional training in such short time because many muscle groups are used at the same time and the joints are spared. Muscles growth (hypertrophy) is quicker to achieve. It is important to know that the hormone level is essential: training males build up muscles (hormone: testosterone) and training females tighten muscles (hormone: estrogen).
No, according to official studied, there are absolutely no negative side effects for sport-healthy humans. On the contrary, there are a lot of positive epiphenomena (by-products). Electro treatments are also a recognized part of classical techniques in physiotherapy since the 1950s.
No. The low-frequency impulse exclusively activates the striated skeletal muscles. Organs and the heart are not reached.
