Some of the questions we get asked often, we have compiled them here for you.
HOW DOES EMS WORK?
As you exercise, low level electric impulses are sent to pads positioned on your limbs and torso which trigger muscle contractions.
EMS mimics the brain’s pulses, only more intensively, providing natural muscle resistance much like you would get from weight machines.
IS IT SIMILAR TO AN AB BELT?Not at all. EMS is so effective because it’s a proactive technology developed for athletes, targeting the entire body to achieve optimal conditioning, burn fat, develop strength, tighten muscles, jump-start your metabolism and restore natural balance.
IS IT GOOD FOR STRENGTH TRAINING AND MUSCLE TONING?You bet! EMS has historically been responsible for a whole host of benefits, including: Strength enhancement Pain management Injury rehabilitation Toning of muscle Burning of fat Back pain free
IS WEIGHT-LOSS ONE OF THE BENEFITS?For sure! EMS has been shown to burn off layers of subcutaneous fat while you strength train, reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the higher your rate of metabolism and the higher caloric burn rate while the body is at rest.
HOW LONG BEFORE I START TO NOTICE A DIFFERENCE?Typically, it takes about 3 to 4 weeks before any real, noticeable improvement. But with continued use, you can expect to see a slimmer waistline, tighter muscle groupings, improved endurance, body composition, toning and better posture and overall balance.
ARE THERE ANY SAFETY ISSUES?If correctly supervised and administered by a professional, there is no danger inherent in this technology. EMS is a popular means of training utilized by many studios throughout the world. The low current has been approved by the FDA and there are no known cases of muscular injury associated with an EMS electro-stimulation session.
WHY DOES IT ONLY TAKE 20 MINUTES PER SESSION TO WORK?An EMS Ology session incorporates a wide array of different exercises in a short period of time. Your body will experience the same effects you would need in a regular hour and a half workout. On top of that, the EMS technology amplifies the experience to a level where you’re able to raise your muscle engagement from 45% to 95%.
