Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training is a type of training that uses a wearable device that attaches to the body, stimulating your muscles through tiny electrodes that accelerate your workout and enhance your body-toning results.

Yes. For a healthy and sportive lifestyle, you should integrate sport in your life in the long term. Regarding EMS, it is the same as conventional training. To ensure the full performance of your muscle is only possible with regular practice. If you substitute the training over a longer period of time, the muscle develops back to its original state. As with conventional strength training also.

No, EMS training replicates the fundamental mechanism of muscle contraction, which occurs as a result of the interaction between the brain and the central nervous system. Fitness Journey uses a low frequency stimulus to activate intense muscle contractions and your personal trainer will ensure that your training levels are customized to meet your individual needs.

EMS training with Fitness Journey is a highly intense workout and it is therefore important to have a sustainable meal (carbohydrate and protein-based) 2 to 3 hours before training. We also recommend drinking at least 500 ml water an hour before training to ensure proper hydration.

Over the last few decades, an extensive amount of research has proven the effectiveness and scientific validation of EMS training. Amongst others, areas of improvement include:
  • Maximum strength
  • Strength endurance
  • Speed, responsiveness and agility
  • Perceived physical well-being
  • reduction of back pain

EMS I-shape and I-motion technology that have spinal cord stimulators helps to effectively treat chronic back pain.

Yes. EMS has been shown to be safe and effective in the long term since the strength of the muscles can only be maintained by training regularly.

Yes. In the first phase of the training, you will lose centimeters and in the second phase, fat depots are attacked. Due to the increased muscle activity, you will also burn more calories. EMS training is a perfect complement to a dietary change in order to support weight-loss effectively.

While the muscle works, the local contraction is intensively stimulated. The increased blood flow has a positive effect on the skin, the body is toned and cellulite can be reduced effectively. After the training, you will feel relaxed and refreshed. EMS training also improves the physical performance: you feel more flexible, healthier, and you tire less quickly. Compared to conventional training, EMS offers the advantages of an intense workout in much less time.

No, according to official studies, there are absolutely no negative side effects for sport-healthy individuals. On the contrary, there are a lot of positive effects. Electro treatments are also a recognized part of classical techniques in physiotherapy since the 1950s.

You do not need any special requirements in particular. Every healthy person can make effective use of EMS. Just in specific cases of pre-existing conditions or acute sickness, which exclude heavier physical loads or sport, doing EMS training is not allowed. All possible contrary indicators will be excluded in a personal conversation prior to the training.
