Is EMS training a long-term fitness solution?

Yes. EMS training can definitely be practiced long-term and we recommend that you continue a regular training regime in order to maintain muscle strength, as well as other positive results.

Check out our studio finder to see if there is a my30minutes studio nearby. Alternatively, you can enquire about our studio locations or EMS home service by emailing info@my30minutes.com.

Are there any special requirements I should be aware of before starting my EMS training programme?

There are no special requirements as such and one of the main benefits is that EMS is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, including post pregnancy. However, you should always discuss any pre-existing conditions and illnesses with your healthcare provider and trainer before embarking on a new routine to ensure it is safe to do so.

Safety

Is the current used in electrical muscle stimulation safe?

Yes. Only a low-frequency current stimulation is used during training. During the training with low-frequency current stimulation, this pulse is simply fortified by the additional pulse from outside. Therefore, the impulse does not seem foreign to the body.

Does the electric current have any side effects?

No. According to a number of official studies, there are absolutely no negative side effects for healthy individuals. On the contrary, there are a lot of positive benefits. Electrical muscle stimulation has been widely used as a physiotherapy technique since the 1950s.

Can the electric current harm my heart?

No. The low-frequency impulse exclusively activates the striated skeletal muscles, meaning it does not reach the organs or the heart.

Benefits of EMS

What benefits does an EMS full-body workout offer?

Electrical muscle stimulation technology offers all the advantages of a conventional intense workout, in a much shorter time. It is a fast, safe and effective way to build strength, increase performance, tone up and lose inches around those stubborn areas, plus the increase in blood flow can reduce cellulite and improve skin tone. At my30minutes, we believe that EMS training is the key to a fitter, healthier body and once you get started you’ll never look back.

How long does an EMS training session take?

You can reap the maximum benefits during a 30-minute session.

Is EMS good for weight loss?

Yes. During the first phase of training, you can expect to lose centimetres and in the second phase, the fat depots are broken down resulting in fat removal and weight loss. Due to the increased muscle activity, you will also burn more calories. EMS training is the perfect complement to a healthy nutritional plan for effective, long-term weight loss.
