What Do You Wear When EMS Training?
22 January, 2021
Many things set EMS training apart from a regular gym workout. There’s the targeted muscle stimulation, there’s the certified EMS trainer who checks that you’re on track, but also – perhaps more importantly – there’s the suit you have to wear.
You probably have a lot of questions about the suit.
The good news is at 20PerFit we know that many of our clients are just trying out EMS training for the first time, so there is no question that we aren’t happy to answer!
It’s All About the Suit
The 20PerFit bodysuit is at the cutting edge of scientific innovation.
The electrodes in the suit target and stimulate the muscles, which means that all the different muscle groups activate simultaneously. This means that an EMS workout is more intense than a regular workout because while you’re wearing the suit, your muscles will contract over 150 times more than in a typical training session.
What’s more, a pulse generator is incorporated into the suit, so your certified trainer can use the 20PerFit app to control each electrode’s intensity. You can trust our trainers to tailor each workout to you, your body, and your fitness goals.
But, the best part is that the suit we use is fully wireless, so there will be nothing holding you back from giving it your all when you’re training. This also means that we can be flexible and come to you for your sessions, making it convenient and easy to start EMS training. You won’t even have to leave the house!
What Else Do You Need to Start EMS Training?
Nothing else! EMS training is all about convenience, so you can choose what else you wear.
Some people wear just the EMS suit and nothing else, but some women choose to wear underwear and a sports bra with no underwire. If you’re body-conscious, you can wear anything you’re comfortable with on top of the suit; under the EMS suit should be kept bare. It’s really up to you.
When wearing nothing underneath the suit, you don’t need to worry about any hygiene issues. The suit has 2% silver material which is antibacterial and washable. Plus, it will be for you and nobody else, so you can rest assured that if it’s sweaty after a workout, it’s just because you’ve been working so hard in it and not because someone else has.
The choice is yours when it comes to footwear. While some people prefer to wear trainers when working out with weights for safety reasons, this is no concern for EMS training, because EMS workouts are based on bodyweight exercises. That means that for EMS training, you don’t need to wear any footwear at all, and in fact, some clients prefer to go barefoot because it helps with stability, muscle alignment and balance.
So, you don’t even need to have any workout clothes or shoes to start EMS training, so what are you waiting for? Find out more about how to get started with 20PerFit.
