Professional fitness equipment is the fundamental need for any gym. Amongst the most innovative solutions for training methods are the devices using the EMS METHOD, in other words, the electro-stimulation. What is the EMS training, and how to introduce it into the gym’s offer? What are the benefits of using muscle electro-stimulation?
EMS training is a full-body workout type of exercises, in conjunction with a special device for the electro-stimulation of muscles. EMS devices are most commonly in a shape of vests, or suits, inside of which are the electrodes and accumulators. Electrodes touching the body, generate electric impulses of appropriate frequency, intensity and working length, which makes a large number of muscles parts contract at the same time. Thanks to which, it is possible to increase the efficiency of a workout and the number of calories burnt, as well as general improvement of physical fitness, improvement of blood circulation, reduction of cellulite, and decreasing the pain in lingering injuries of osteoarticular system. EMS training is always conducted under the watchful eye of a professional trainer and does not require additional devices or weights, which is why it is perfectly safe and can be performed by beginners of all ages.
When compared to traditional methods of training, EMS offers several benefits. Amongst the best of them, there’s a short duration of a workout – all you need are two half an hour-long session weekly, to start to see a positive change (in case of traditional training, it is usually required to train at least four to five time a week, for an hour and a half long sessions). Exercises in conjunction with electro-stimulation of muscles allow for an increase in calories burnt (by a lot), while also allowing for improvement of metabolism. A huge advantage of EMS training for people who do not have a lot of free times, and can not visit the gym too often. Workouts with EMS devices allow for even three times faster reduction in body fat and muscles building than the traditional methods of training. It is all an excellent solution for physical therapy, for the people recovering from injuries and accidents, as well as for the patients suffering from joint and spinal pains.
Innovative EMS devices are created in a form of comfortable, body tight suits, which can be washed after each workout Suits made for the EMS training are much lighter and more comfortable than vests used before them, which limited the range of motion and were harder to clean. Investment in EMS suits is a great solution for any gym and fitness club, which wants to widen their offer with innovative forms of training, aimed at the most demanding clients.
