What Is EMS Training Used For


Strength is the foundation of all sporting success, and EMS has been found to enhance strength and improve performance in athletes across a variety of sports. Many professional athletes use EMS as it’s a safe way to enhance training, improve performance and facilitate faster muscle recovery. This technology is now available to athletes of all levels, from the aspiring amateur to the weekend warrior.

At 20PerFit, our team of professionals can tailor your workout to help you reach your individual athletic goals. Whether you’re aiming to increase speed, endurance or power, or are looking for an effective method to help your muscles recover faster after a race, a game or event, your certified 20PerFit trainer can create a workout that meets your specific needs.


20PerFit’s 20-minute workouts are designed to target your entire body to develop muscular strength and increase stamina, endurance and stability. EMS sends electrical impulses that target deep muscle fibres, and during each workout up to 90% of your muscles are activated. In just 20 minutes, you’ll undergo a full-body workout that’s equivalent to 3 hours of a conventional training session.

EMS can build overall muscle strength, but can also be used to target any areas of weakness or imbalance, reducing risk of injury and helping you to perform at your peak. Your 20PerFit certified trainer can create a workout that’s tailored to your specific needs, and can adapt your training as you improve, so you can continue to build strength, confidence and power.

Weight loss

EMS training helps you to build lean muscle, which in turn speeds up your metabolism, helping you to burn fat. You’ll also burn more calories during your functional EMS workout due to the increased muscle activity that EMS provides, and because more muscle fibres are activated during an EMS session than during a conventional workout, this also triggers an “afterburn” effect – which means you’ll burn more calories for up to 48 hours after each EMS session.

Through functional EMS training, specific problem areas of the body can also be targeted, including the abdominals, thighs and “love handles”. EMS can also help to reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving circulation, removing toxins, toning muscles and stimulating collagen production and blood flow to the skin.

To get the best possible weight-loss results, it’s recommended to combine your EMS training with a healthy eating plan. This will not only facilitate greater weight loss, it will also give you more energy to get the most out of your training.


20PerFit is ideal for anyone aiming to enhance their health and improve their quality of life.
Some health benefits of functional EMS training include the improvement of blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, weight loss and a reduction in the risk of disease. EMS can also enhance mental health by improving sleep, reducing depression and anxiety and boosting overall self-esteem.

At 20PerFit, we can help you to achieve and surpass your health goals through the support and guidance of our qualified fitness professionals.


Getting back into shape after pregnancy can be challenging for many women. 20PerFit offers you a safe and time-efficient way to achieve the results you want. Functional EMS can target any problem areas and activate muscles that can be hard to reach with conventional training. For instance, EMS can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles via stimulation of the adductor muscles of the thigh as well as the nerves that supply the pelvic floor muscles. This can help to prevent urinary incontinence associated with pregnancy and birth.

EMS also offers an effective way to build strength without the need for heavy weights or long, strenuous cardio sessions, and it allows you to train safely under the guidance of an experienced trainer, with no impact on your joints. And all you need is 20 minutes – perfect for time-poor new mothers. Our team of experts are also on hand to offer you nutritional advice to supplement your training plan and help you reach your goals faster.

Older adults

Muscle mass decreases with age, but many older adults find conventional strength training to be too taxing on their joints. EMS offers an ideal solution for older adults who are looking to build strength and balance and reduce risk of injury or falls. It’s been found to increase both muscle strength and mass in elderly people and can also help to maintain bone mineral density.

Because there’s no pressure on your joints or tendons, you can train safely and confidently, and your certified 20PerFit trainer will work with you during every session to ensure that you get the most out of your training. It’s a safe and easy way to boost strength, stability and confidence, allowing you to enjoy a stronger, more active, independent and healthy life.


Functional EMS training is ideal for rehabilitating your muscles after injury or a period of inactivity. EMS technology has been used by physiotherapists for decades, as it’s an effective way to target specific muscle groups without the risk of muscle or joint strain. EMS is also a great way to stimulate inactive muscles and rebuild strength when you’re not able to do so through conventional training, and it’s also ideal for muscle recovery as it promotes circulation, which aids in nutrient transfer through the muscles, accelerating the recovery process.

For people suffering from back pain, EMS can help to strengthen your core and correct muscle imbalances, and the technology has been found to reduce lower back pain and quality of life in adults.

No matter your rehabilitation needs, our 20PerFit certified trainers can help you to find the perfect solution. EMS is a safe and effective way to recover from injury and rebuild your strength, allowing you to recover faster and get back to enjoying your active lifestyle.
