FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1
How does EMS training work?
EMS is technically a full body workout using electrical stimulation. Our muscles are constantly being stimulated throughout the day with normal daily activities by Bioelectronics inside our bodies. Therefore, EMS training merely reinforces the body’s own effect through barely perceptible electric impulses from outside the body.
2
How long does an EMS training session take?
You can reap the maximum benefits during a 20-minute session.
3
How many sessions should I do per week in order to see results?
It is advisable to do either once or twice a week, depending on your goals. Three times is the maximum. However, a 48 hour rest period in between workouts is required. After 4 sessions you will feel initial results. After 10 sessions, along with a healthy diet, you can clearly see a major difference.
4
Do I have to move or exercise during the workout?
Yes, you do. Performing the right exercises in line with the rhythm of the impulses significantly intensifies the favorable effects of EMS training as opposed to exercising alone. Suitable exercises are given by our trainers

But it is crucial to consult with your physician first.
