EMF Fitness right for you?

Is EMS fitness right for you?

It’s a common question, and the short answer is that most people benefit from EMS sessions, but let’s dive a little deeper.

EMS fitness provides several benefits over conventional training that we covered in a previous blog entry called “Why is EMS so effective?”. In this blog entry let’s cover who benefits the most from this technology.

EMS fitness is great for you if:

  • You’re a busy person: if you don’t have time to devote several hours a week to exercise, EMS sessions are 20 minutes long with 5 minutes before and after to get in and out of the SuperSuit. You’ll be reclaiming hours of your life, yet maintaining as much intensity as you can handle, and getting similar or greater results as with conventional training according to research.
  • You have aches and pains: if aches and pains are making it hard for you to find appropriate exercises, getting on and off the floor, lifting heavy, etc. EMS fitness is an amazing option since it’s joint-friendly, low-impact, and can be as intense as desired.
  • You lack motivation: if you’re finding it hard to exercise consistently, or push yourself to exercise at your full capacity, our trainers are here to guide you along and gradually evolve your program to keep your workouts challenging but attainable.
  • You have a hard time activating certain muscles: if your glutes or mid-back muscles are difficult to engage, or hard to engage when needed (running, hiking, going up the stairs, etc.) then EMS workouts are an effective option to get them up and running again.
  • You don’t enjoy the gym environment: we provide in-home EMS personal training, so exercising becomes convenient in the comfort of your place.
  • You don’t want to invest in fitness equipment: are you mostly using your $2500 Peloton bike as a clothes hanger? If you want to train at home with conventional weights, whether alone or with a personal trainer, you will inevitably need to invest in some fitness equipment, especially as you get stronger. With EMS fitness, you don’t need to get anything other than your own undergarments ($35), which you can later hang on that Peloton bike.

Disclaimer: I have nothing against Peloton, I personally know a couple of their instructors, and their cardio classes are a great compliment to EMS fitness.

  • You just had a baby: if you are cleared to exercise post-pregnancy, EMS fitness is a great way to get back in shape while you adjust to your new life as a parent. You save time on your workouts, you get back into a routine, and you start regaining your fitness level.
  • You’re going through menopause: maintaining or losing weight may become a challenge. We know that maintaining muscle mass will help keep up your metabolism. EMS fitness is a great choice to meet all your resistance training needs.
  • You’re an athlete: if you want to allocate more time to practice your sport, then electro muscle stimulation can cover your resistance training needs shortly and effectively. EMS fitness also helps with muscle imbalances and strengthens weaker muscle groups. Watch Usain Bolt work on his core with electro muscle stimulation here.
  • You’re an actor/stunt double: if you’re preparing for a role, or you’re already filming, EMS workouts are great for you to get in shape and stay in shape throughout the shoot since you may be able to fit in sessions in-between scenes. Listen to Tom Holland talk about it here.

EMS fitness is beneficial to a wide range of people. I want to emphasize another few categories where I think electrical muscle stimulation is not just a great option, but indeed the best solution the fitness industry can offer:

  • You have arthritis/osteoporosis: if you have arthritis or osteoporosis, moving through full ranges of motion, or holding weights may already be painful. EMS fitness allows you to exercise with limited ranges of motion and without any weights. The SuperSuit has electrodes directly on the muscles, so you don’t even need to work against gravity. You will be able to do push-ups, crunches, and other common exercises while standing, instead of needing to get on the floor.
  • You have a herniated disc: if you’ve had a disc herniation, you will most likely need to pay close attention to your movement patterns, exercise choice, weight selection, and make sure you are engaging the right muscles at the right time. EMS fitness will be the best option to get your core stronger while preventing rotations or spinal flexion that could aggravate the herniation.
  • You are recovering from an injury: typically, if you’re recovering from an injury, healing and performing physical therapy homework will become your new exercise routine. EMS fitness, however, can allow you to still improve your strength and keep progressing, even though you are injured and recovering.
