EMS personal training: shockingly simple

EMS is a great way to give your PT revenue a boost; encourage your non-gym floor members or cardio-only users with EMS PT thus increasing yield per head.
– Phil Horton, Country Director UK & ROI

People's fitness goals are extremely diverse – ranging from an elite athlete focused on the next goal to someone who dislikes all activity due to chronic back pain.

Whatever the answer, electro-muscular stimulation (EMS) personal training is a perfect option. With its origins in high-performance training, this professional-grade technology has been routinely used by experts around the world for decades for everything from injury rehabilitation to elite sports performance.

In the late 2000’s EMS was embraced by PTs and studio innovators for more commercial, mainstream wellbeing and body sculpting.

miha bodytec’s iBody EMS device sends electrical signals to muscles, causing them to contract. It mimics the natural signal sent by the brain but is much more powerful. In fact, combining simple exercises like squats and lunges in a one-on-one PT session with the external stimulus of EMS activates up to 98 per cent muscle fibres, making it one of the most advanced, efficient workout tools on the market.

To reach their goals, most people try a traditional exercise routine consisting of cardio and strength activities. But, EMS PT provides an option that not only keeps things fresh and interesting, it can also help people reach goals faster and more efficiently.

Studies show that EMS training is as effective as HIT and requires far less time to achieve the same results. They both generate favourable changes in body composition and strength but EMS sessions are low impact, last just 20 minutes and only require a single session per week.

EMS is also a perfect tool for injuries and pain and is scientifically proven to speed up recovery for acute back pain and help prevent future back injury.

When operated by a certified EMS PT, EMS training can be used for every type of client from high performance to someone who is brand new to fitness.

EMS is a great way to give your PT revenue a boost; encourage your non-gym floor members or cardio-only users with EMS PT thus increasing yield per head.
