THE EMS TECHNOLOGY
Electrical Muscle Stimulation or EMS uses low-frequency electrical impulses to stimulate those muscles that are often ignored by conventional training methods. It is the best scientifically proven training tool for weight loss and muscle toning. EMS training stimulates up to 90% of the muscle fibers, increasing strength, and endurance.
Using German technology ensures the highest quality standards. EMS Technology is efficient, scientifically proven, and more importantly, safe.
SCIENTIFIC & HOLISTIC EMS EXPERIENCE
Our unique EMS training approach is designed to promote your cardio, strength, endurance, and mobility. We will train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. During EMS Sessions we will raise your heart rate into your target heart rate zone, where you'll burn the most fat and calories. During the session, your trainer will adjust the EMS impulse level throughout the workout according to your level of comfort and fitness goals.
Is EMS safe to use?
Yes, EMS is safe – it is a well-researched technology that has been used by physicians, physiotherapists and chiropractors for many years. With the help of our knowledgeable and experienced trainers the electrical current stimulates your muscles and feels more like a vibration.
Is EMS good for weight loss?
Yes. During the first phase of training, you can expect to start shaping your body. During the second phase, the fat depots will be broken down resulting in substantial fat removal and weight loss. Due to the increased muscle activity during an EMS session, your body will also burn more calories.

How many times do I need to train and how quickly will I see results?
Replace 2 of your conventional training sessions with 2 EMS workouts. To see optimum results, EMS can be used twice a week in addition to one or two conventional workouts. Changes can usually be seen after ten sessions or less depending on your lifestyle. Scientific studies have shown the following results over a 12-week period using EMS: 9% body fat loss, 30% increase in strength, 89% of people felt stronger and fitter.
Is there any special training required to use EMS?
EMS training is an excellent workout for people of all ages and fitness levels. It is user friendly and done under personal supervision with a professional that has undergone a certified training course.
Can I do EMS as an addition to my normal workout routine?
Yes, you can. Ideal additions to EMS training include activities such as yoga or Pilates as well as any type of cardio training. The recovery phase of an EMS session is typically 24 to 48 hours, similar to a conventional training session. High-intensity resistance training, e.g. lifting heavy weights, is another great addition to EMS training but should be avoided during the recovery phase. All other sports related activities can be continued as normal.
Can the electrical current harm my heart?
No. The low-frequency impulse exclusively activates the striated skeletal muscles, meaning it does not reach the organs or the heart.
Is EMS good for post pregnancy?
Yes, EMS is specifically designed to tighten and tone slack muscles (post natal bulges). EMS training is specifically tailored to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, thus improving or eliminating the muscle weakness in that area as well incontinence issues. Furthermore, EMS is a gentle solution for your postnatal exercises to regain your pre-pregnancy shape. However, EMS cannot be used during pregnancy.
Does the electric current have any side effects?
No. According to a number of official studies, there are absolutely no negative side effects for healthy individuals. On the contrary, there are a lot of positive benefits. Electrical muscle stimulation has been widely used as a physiotherapy technique since the 1950s.
