WARNING: once you start EMS training, you may not want to stop

A Q & A on Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training:
There are numerous reasons as to why we stall ourselves from training. Whatever the reason, Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is the antidote.
The benefits of EMS training over conventional training are copious. Work smarter, not harder is the perfect analogy to use when considering the benefits of EMS training.
What is Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)?
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) is an active, full body workout system. It involves a bodysuit and software that accelerates muscle stimulation. The software used stimulates electrodes that are built into the bodysuit, sending impulses into your body. These impulses impersonate electrical signals from the brain, activating both deep and surface muscle. This hastening of muscle activity means a 20 minute EMS body workout is equivalent to a 4-5 hour conventional one, delivering corresponding results in only a portion of the time.
Electrical? What!? Is Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) safe?
For many, EMS is not favoured over traditional training methods. Health professionals all over the globe have performed EMS training in various environments, using various subjects, and have concluded that the electric system is appropriately regulated and… SAFE!
EMS trainers regulate the intensity of muscle activation, meaning the session is tailored upon your capabilities and needs.
In any case, experts agree that EMS training is safe!
What is keeping me from training using Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)?
It is safe, it is convenient and now, it is mobile! Nothing should stall you from making the decision to train using EMS technology. The hustle of Sydney means that many of us are inclined to decline training due to over-committed, work-filled hours during the day.
With convenient EMS options, such as 20 PerFit, training can come to you. Yes, you read it right. EMS training is mobile and convenient as ever. This means there is absolutely no excuse now.
How many Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) sessions do I need?
Before you consider how many you need, it is important to understand that the maximum amount of times you can train using Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology is 1-2 times per week. This is to allow time for your muscles to repair and recoup before your next session.
Yes, you NEED that time to recover!
The question here is better answered by better considering how long it will take to see results. As with any other type of training, everyone varies. However, it is guaranteed that results will show at least twice as faster than a regular, conventional workout.
How hard will the Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training session be?
The beauty of EMS training is that the intensity can be modified without the discount of results. According to your fitness level, EMS training can be:
- Low intensity
- Moderate intensity
- High intensity
The ability to customise the intensity of your session means that there is a personalised workout for everyone. Whether an ‘office bum’ or a ‘fitness freak,’ EMS is for you!
That’s why EMS training is the perfect solution for you. 20-minutes is all it takes, all you need to do is set aside 20 minutes for yourself in your busy week for a single EMS session, and you will have done the equivalent of 4 traditional gym workouts.
Having young children keeps you busy and on your feet all day every day. This means you might not have any moments to yourself, let alone an hour each day set aside for a gym workout.
That’s why EMS training works well with the busy day to day lives that most parents lead. A single 20-minute session per week is all that is needed to achieve the same results as if you were to do 4x traditional workout sessions and you’ll get the weight off faster with better results!
EMS training is particularly useful for mums who have given birth to their child and want to get rid of the stubborn pregnancy weight but have almost no time to do so. In addition to this, EMS can assist in the activation and strengthening of the pelvic floor muscles postpartum.
Well, 20 minutes per week is all you need in a one on one EMS session with qualified trainers who will guide and motivate you to reach your goals and even provide a nutritional booklet, encouraging healthy eating, to coincide with your workout schedule.
People who travel frequently:
If you travel often for work maintaining consistent gym workouts every week will be very difficult and most probably, unlikely.
Our 20PerFit trainers will work around your busy schedule and put together a training program that will still get you your desired results, despite your frequent travels. Don’t let your busy schedule stop you from achieving your goals, EMS is your solution.
For injured patients, a therapist might resort to the use of Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) which can assist with pain relief, muscle memory as well as complete muscle activation.
EMS acts as a form of pain relief for patients who are unable to take anti-inflammatory tablets, whereby the electric pulses rub against the injured area.
It also aids the memory of the muscle, for example, for an athlete with an injured knee, the muscles will switch off and not function to their full ability. With EMS a therapist discovers which muscles aren’t working and engages EMS to assist them in functioning again.
I struggle to stay motivated. How will Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) make me want to train again?
- It is a 20-minute workout
- The results are faster and more noticeable
- It is a mobile service (for your convenience)
- A personal trainer is included in each session
- Do you need any more reasons?
