FAQ's

Why only 20 Minutes?
By using EMS we stimulate all major muscle groups in every session instead just one or two as with conventional training. The muscle stimulation itself is deeper, more intensive and address more muscle fibers, which makes it possible to reduce time to 20 minutes per session.A 20-minute EMS workout in our revolutionary gym equals a 3 hours of conventional training in a regular gym.
How about hygiene?
You get for every session a fresh pair of EMS-specialized underwear, which you wear under the EMS- Suit. The electrodes are covered with a special anti-bacterial fabric for long and hygienic use. The electrodes are cleaned regularly with a special detergent and are replaced regularly. A hygenic surrounding while training is our highest priority.
Is it safe?
EMS has been researched for decades (local applied in physiotherapy), the electrical current used is low and completely safe . If you`re medically cleared to perform other types of workout, EMS is generally considered to be safe. Our EMS-Specialists are educated at Gluckerkolleg in Cologne, Germany (worldwide leading institute for education about EMS-training) to meet the highest quality and safety standards. The EMS device is tested and approved by TÜV Rhainland, Germany.
Does it hurt?
No. The experience will be not painful or uncomfortable in any way. Customer describe it like a vibration comparable to a shower head pointed at your skin from a short distance.
I tried to reshape my body in the past convetional, without having success. Does EMS help?
Definitely. EMS-Training a high intensive training which activates all muscles, burns about 500 calories per session and increase the calorie consumption in the following days after the session dramatically. The fast visibile results will keep your motivation up.
As a women I don’t want to grow big moun- tains of muscles, is EMS-Training suitable for me ?
Yes. Studies shown, women improved their performance, lost on waist and hips without building mountains of muscle (which is hormone related).
How will I feel after EMS-Training?
After an EMS session you have a powerful sense of well-being and should feel all the positive effects of having done a great intensive workout. Endorphins are released and you will experience greater physical awareness and improved posture.
Are there contra indicator for the training?
If you`re medically cleared to perform other intensive types of workout, EMS is generally considered to be safe. You should definitely consult your doctor and get medical approval if any of the following is relevant to you: • Heart pacemaker • Pregnancy • serious diseas such as Cancer, Tuberkulose etc.
 

Research studies from the Bayreuth University in Germany:

The effectiveness of EMS training is up to 18 times higher than a conventional gym work-out.
20 minutes of EMS training is as effective as 3 training sessions of 90 minutes of a general weight work-out.
88% of people tested reduced their back pain.
Over 30% of those reported their recurring back problems had disappeared.
75% showed improvement with incontinence problems, while 33% of those were cured of incontinence altogether.
Overall maximum strength ability increased by 12% while endurance/fitness levels improved by 69%.
On average, 85% of people tested felt an improvement of their body shape and 90% ranked the EMS training method as positive.

Research from the German Sport University Cologne (2009):

Strength and speed “Full body EMS training was the only training method that succeeded in improving the speed factor within the overall performance. In addition, the results achieved by this training methodology open up new possibilities for frequency and duration of training. The regular use of EMS training in combination with dynamic movement is a promising combination for improved strength, endurance and speed work.”

Research from the Sport department of Mahidol University Thailand (2016):

„Electrical muscle stimulation affects body metabolic processes, in that there is an increase in fat oxidation and may therefore be used as an alternative method for fat burning for people who have limitations in doing weightbearing exercise.“

Research from National Strength & Conditioning Association USA (2009):

The study shows that EMS may benefit pitching performance by aiding the recovery process. It stated that could potentially: reduce some injuries, enable the pitcher to throw more pitches each game, and mean less days are required between pitching appearances.
