FAQ

WHAT IS EMS TRAINING?

During normal every day life your muscles are continuously and naturally being stimulated by bioelectric impulses. It’s what causes your muscles to contract, so you can move.

Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is a method of amplifying this natural process to encourage your muscles to work harder. Extra electrical impulses are delivered to your body through a specially designed training suit containing electrodes. The extra stimulation creates stronger, more intense muscle contractions than from conventional training, making EMS much more effective in developing strength, stamina and improving body shape.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EMS TRAINING?
EMS Training is an effective way to improve your fitness level, body image and well being in far less time than conventional training. Only 1 to 2 sessions a week are enough to see results. It is also used for rehabilitation after injury, for joint-sparing muscle formation and for targeted back exercises.  

SHOULD I AVOID EMS TRAINING IF I HAVE CERTAIN HEALTH CONDITIONS?

Most people can do EMS training but if you have a certain health condition that prevents you from participating in conventional sport then you must get approval from your doctor. Unfortunately we are not able to accept clients with the following:

– Pregnant
– Heart Pacemaker
– Severe circulatory disorder & arterial circulatory disorder
– Epilepsy
– Diabetes mellitus

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS WITH LONG-TERM TRAINING WITH EMS?
No, EMS technology is based on low frequency impulses that do not harm the body. The equipment stimulates electrical impulses and sends them to the muscles in the same way as the central nervous system. There are no known side effects of EMS training.

DOES EMS TRAINING HURT?
No. EMS training is no more strenuous than a conventional workout. The equipment uses low impulse frequency so the experience of receiving the impulses may take a little getting used to, but it is not painful in any way.

HOW OFTEN CAN I DO THE TRAINING?
We recommend that our clients train once or twice a week. After each training session it usually takes around 36-48 hours for the body to recover and consequently, doing more than two sessions is not recommended.
