Confessions of a Hollywood Stuntman

Just one 20-minute session once a week is all that’s needed

Miha bodytec is a game-changer. With its innovative EMS technology (Electro Muscle Stimulation), the method is one of the best-kept celebrity success secrets in achieving a body that is tight and firm and ultimately flawless. Many high-performance athletes have also used the technology to supplement their usual training and to rapidly increase their strength and endurance. Far ahead of his time, Bruce Lee had toyed with EMS in increasing his muscle development, while Usain Bolt has been relying on the miha bodytec technique for a number of years.

The miha bodytec device triggers muscle growth via electronic impulses sent to the body which ensure in a unique way that 90% of muscle fibres are activated all at once, offering a full-body workout with contractions of roughly 85 per second. But its main appeal to many is its complete convenience.

Now even those less dedicated to exercise are able to make the time, without having to sacrifice other aspects of their life they might miss. In one 20 minute session, your body can burn up to an average of 500 calories and this does not even account for the calorific burn that continues three days onward from training during rest. Plus if using weekly, one’s muscle mass and metabolism rate will see a significant boost, burning excess fat all the more. With a technique that is fast and furious, the days of being a gym rat are no longer necessary.

‘Great discovery’
At just 23 years old, Bobby Holland Hanton found his first break as the double for James Bond in 2008’s Quantum of Solace. Since his film debut, he has played doppelgänger for the likes of Batman, Captain America and Thor to become one of the most in-demand stuntmen in Hollywood. Hanton is able to offer world-class skill and supreme fitness to every role and using miha bodytec has only helped enhance this incredible athletic ability.
“It is great for maintaining the body I need to film when I haven’t the time to get to my normal gym”. Hanton discovered the EMS trend through friends and then went home to read up about it online. As a self-confessed thrill seeker, he grew intrigued by the revolutionary method and since his first trial he hasn’t looked back: “It was a great little discovery” he says.

Having to contend with a busy schedule, it had been difficult to find a formula that works completely. “Staying fit is my job but balancing it with my lifestyle sometimes seems virtually impossible. Between plane hopping and being on set, it can be difficult to maintain a strict workout routine, not only in finding the time but just with how physically demanding it can be.”

What’s more, he is often required to morph his appearance into leading men and has to constantly change his physique, sometimes with limited time between roles. Miha bodytec allows one to tailor their workouts for personal goals so is effective in tackling specific muscle groups, also catering to body shaping, weight loss, muscle strengthening and many more. With the device, almost anything is possible, all with just one workout per week. “Miha bodytec provides me with an easy solution to maintain my physique all year round. Twenty minutes in the suit is the equivalent of a good three or four full sessions in the gym, so it can be the boost I need to stay on form”.

Acting out dangerous stunts comes with a degree of risk and during the rehearsals for the film Green Lantern, things almost went horribly wrong. Hanton had to perform a move where he landed and slid across a concrete floor, but upon repeating it several times he injured his back. He slipped two discs and his leg was near paralysed for a month, and he sustained serious sciatic nerve damage. “It took over a year to get back to full fitness,” he says.

New studio
As someone whose pay cheque hinges on them being at peak health at all times, this came as a real drawback. Miha bodytec would be wholly proficient as a method of rehabilitation to aid with recovery post-injury or surgery, applying zero pressure to joints or tendons. In fact, the device can be used specifically to alleviate back pain as it enhances your muscular balance gently and progressively and restores the area to better health.

As such a fan of the fitness method, Hanton has opened up his own gym, The Body Shape Studios in Surbiton, exclusively for EMS training. He is keen to spread the word on miha bodytec and to encourage others into getting fit – particularly those who would usually be opposed to the idea. In a 2014 study conducted by Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), it was revealed that 67% of men and 57% of women in the UK are either overweight or obese.

The main ambition with miha bodytec is to make a positive change and provide people with the confidence to fulfil a happy and active lifestyle. By introducing an easy and efficient method of exercise that is available for all, they are one big step closer to doing so.
