Perfect Gift For Your Parents: Health, Fitness, and Balance with EMS

If you’re anything like me, you are now scrambling to buy gifts for your loved ones. What should you get? What do they want? What do they need? What would show them you care about them? 

Instead of browsing through the algorithm that Amazon has put together for you, here’s a healthier idea: The gift of strength, balance, and independence.

That’s right. Independence. 

The best predictors of a long life are strength and balance

Muscles are like the body’s natural armor. They help protect your body from falls, allow you to hold on to prevent a fall, allow you to get back up if you happen to fall, and are also a big component of balance. 

You may have seen your parents struggling with daily activities or getting groceries. 

Aging and falling can be difficult to deal with, but it doesn’t have to be. Fear of falling is often a symptom of aging, and it can be a frightening experience. With the right approach, these challenges can be overcome to allow living life to the fullest.

Here’s how to get started. 

1. Exercise: Regular exercise can help them stay strong and limber, reducing the risk of falls. It can also help improve their balance, coordination, and overall health. Specifically, strength training will have a huge impact on balance, and daily activities.

2. Stay active: Keeping their minds and bodies active can help them stay independent and engaged in life. Spending time with friends and family, going for walks, or joining a club or class, such as playing Petanque in the park with others can contribute to keeping their minds and bodies engaged.

3. Stay safe: Make sure their home is safe and free of hazards. Remove any loose rugs, keep electrical cords out of the way, and install grab bars in the bathroom. Choosing activities that are low-impact and joint-friendly is highly recommended to keep their bodies safe.

How can electro-muscle stimulation help? 

1. Strength: Whole-body EMS is a perfect choice for older populations because it is great at getting people stronger in a short period of time. With traditional weight-lifting, they would start at lower weights and higher repetitions to stay safe. This means it will take a couple of months before getting into real strength training. EMS fitness circumvents this issue by targeting strength muscle fibers directly from the very first session. 

2. Motivation: EMS workouts are guided by a certified personal trainer with a specialization in electro-muscle stimulation training. The personal trainer will make sure they stay engaged and choose exercises that are appropriate for them.

3. Safety: EMS fitness is a very safe exercise modality because it is joint-friendly and low-impact. We use light weights mostly as props to guide the movements. The stimulation is always adjusted to each individual and to each muscle group. We follow evidence-based practices and protocols based on peer-reviewed studies. Our Wiemspro SuperSuits are FDA-cleared. 

If you have already chosen all your gifts for this holiday season, keep us in mind for the next upcoming round of Valentine’s day, Mother’s day, and Father’s day. You can also choose to gift your loved ones the gift of health, just because you care.
