  • What is EMS training, and how does it benefit the body?
    EMS is a low-impact, highly efficient strength and conditioning training program that uses a small current to stimulate muscles. EMS aims to strengthen movement patterns instead of pushing gravity like conventional training.
  • Can EMS training be used to target specific muscle groups?
    During EMS training, we can control intensity levels for each muscle group. For example, we can decrease the intensity level on your legs and increase the intensity on the glute muscles.
  • How does EMS training compare to traditional strength training methods?
    Our brains are very good at interpreting a stimulus and activating the muscles necessary to perform a movement. In conventional training, if we lift lighter weights, we get a certain amount of muscle fibres recruited; if we lift something heavier, we get more muscle fibres recruited. We can activate 90% of the muscle fibres with EMS without impacting the joints.
  • What precautions should be taken before starting an EMS training program?
    Before each EMS session, you must be well-hydrated and not train on an empty stomach. For more tips about a healthy diet, please visit the link below.
  • Are there any contraindications for EMS training?
    As with any physical training, there are contraindications, and EMS is no different. If you are unsure about those contraindications, it’s best to speak with one of our experienced EMS trainers and ensure that EMS is right for you.

  • What should I expect during my first EMS training session?
    During your first EMS session, you will be introduced to how the EMS machine works and will set up a baseline set of intensity levels for each muscle group which will then be improved upon in each subsequent session.
  • How does the intensity of the electrical stimulation during EMS training affect results?
    The intensity of the electrical stimulation determines the amount of muscle fibres engaged during each contraction.
  • What kind of results can I expect from an EMS training program?
    EMS training has various benefits, from burning fat to building lean muscle. Other results that you will see are the improvement of posture and strength and endurance gains.
  • Is there any downtime required after an EMS training session?
    Downtime is required after your EMS training session! EMS training is recommended twice weekly and at least 48 hours between sessions to help your body recover.
  • Can EMS training be combined with other forms of exercise for maximum results?
    EMS can be combined with other forms of exercise!... If you are completing other high-intensity training forms, doing a single 20min EMS session is recommended, as it is considered high-intensity exercise. Ems can be used more frequently with those who complete activities such as yoga and pilates.
  • What is the recommended diet for someone undergoing EMS training?
    After each EMS training session, high-protein meals are recommended to help your muscles recover faster. For more tips about a healthy diet, please visit the link below.
  • Are there any side effects associated with EMS training?
    EMS has the potential to make you dehydrated as a result of its high-intensity nature. It is essential to stay hydrated before and after training.
  • How does EMS training affect recovery from injury or surgery?
    Once cleared by a medical practitioner, EMS can be utilised as a recovery method. EMS is a controlled exercise that activates inactive muscles that lost strength post-injury or surgery and can’t be activated by conventional training at the gym.
