Everything you need to know about EMS Training
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 hardly noticeable external electro impulses, the natural effect is additionally intensified and an effective training can be achieved. I had my first EMS training experience at OxFitness Lab what is located at the Gate Mall, West Bay. I truly loved it as the workout is only 20 minutes but quite intense depending on your level.
The EMS full-body workout activates over 90% of the muscles fibers at the same time during each contraction! As oppose to conventional weight training, deeper muscles are demanded, as well. 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 18 times better than with conventional weight training.
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.
Three important facts you need to know about EMS
- IT DOESN’T HURT
The electrical current is low impulse and completely safe. Whilst the sessions can be intense, the actual feeling of the current is gentle and non-invasive.
- ANYONE CAN DO IT
EMS will help you to achieve your fitness goals and target shape. So whether you are a professional athlete, or someone that hasn’t exercised for years, it can help you.
- PROGRESS STATUS
Will set you achievable training goals, and track your progress on a monthly basis. If you stick to our programme, there is no reason why you won’t achieve your target body shape in a short period of time.
HOW CAN YOU BENEFIT?
Fitness and Personal Training
EMS training is scientifically proven to achieve fast, sustainable results that will start to boost your levels of fitness from the first time you use the equipment. The electrical impulses will spread to each part of your body, exercising each muscle group.
- More energy
- Improved speed
- Increased strength
- Improved endurance
- Higher mobility
- Ability to carry larger loads
- Avoid injuries
- Compensate for age-related loss of strength
Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy
Electric muscle stimulation is commonly used to repair and strengthen your muscles and joints. It is very popular with those recovering from injury, because it places no strain on your joints or tendons. It can also help improve brittle bones.
This benefit is unique to EMS as it targets the muscle groups independently, and the impulses themselves are transmitted directly onto the targeted muscles, bypassing the joints entirely.
- Reduced backache
- Improved posture
- Improved blood circulation
- Prevents bone fracture and osteoporosis
- Improves mental ability
- Boosts your immune system
Beauty and Appearance
Let’s be honest, most people go to the gym because they want to look good. If you want to tone up, lose weight , gain muscle or reduce appearance of cellulite, then we can help. With conventional training, it takes a long time, not to mention effort to achieve the results you want.
Think of all the runs during dark winter nights, pull-ups, or weight exercises that need to be done. You should start to feel fitter and experience visible results within four sessions of using EMS. Not only that, but you’ll also start to feel good too. However, the longer that you use the equipment, the better the results will be.
- Rapid toning
- Reduced cellulite
- Improved skin
- Rapid fat loss
- Improved flexibility
- Increased stamina
Quick and lasting results
In 6 weeks: The average body fat will decrease by around 4%.
In 10 weeks: Women achieve a reduction of between 1.5 – 2cm in the waist and hips.
Men achieve a reduction of between 2 – 2.5cm and increase their muscle size in their legs, chest, and arms by 1 – 2cm.
In 12 weeks: Achieve weight loss of between 3-4kg.
Reduce your body fat ratio by up to 10%. Reduction of around 6-7cm in the waist, and 2cm in the upper arm.
You already feel vitalized after the first training session. Visible success, such as a better posture usually adjusts within few training sessions. Girth loss, power 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.
