EMS is short for electric muscle stimulation. With the help of low-frequency electrictity, muscles are stimulated to contract. In combination with your own simultaneous active tension, this acts as an intense stimulus on your muscle growth.
One training unit contains for example the succession of four seconds impulse and four seconds break. When the impulse starts, you flex your muscles according to the instructions of your personal trainer. Your coach supervises the EMS-stimulus and adjusts it whenever necessary.
EMS training is highly intense. In a short time, all big muscle groups are trained simultaneously.
Low-frequency electricity, which is used in our EMS-training, has been researched in scientific studies and isn’t harmful when handled professionally and with due care. However, sore muscles and a feeling of exhaustion can occur after hard training (see studies of Prof. Dr. Kemmler, Institute of Medical Physics, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg).
No, it doesn’t. That’s why an additional unit for stamina training per week is recommended, such as running, spinning, Nordic walking etc.
We urgently ask you not to exercise when you have a fever, a strong headache, a strong feeling of weakness or a strong cough. Your body needs energy for its immune defense.
Contraindications to EMS training are: pregnancy, pacemakers, thromboses, heart problems (coronary disease, cardiac dysrhythmia, etc.), diabetes mellitus, neuronic diseases, liver- or kidney diseases, cancer, febrile bacterial/viral infections, strong inflammations, abdominal/inguinal hernia, tuberculosis, arteriosclerosis.
Units that you can’t take because of a holiday absence or an illness you can catch up with later, also by training twice a week. However, we can grant a maximum of three weeks per six-month-subscription to catch up with your units.
There is a maximum of two participants per training unit. This is the only way how we can guarantee the high quality of our training.
Yes, provided that your physical regeneration allows you to. Two to three units per week are basically possible. They’re counted as separate units and you’ll be charged accordingly.
