XBODY is an electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) device that allows you to build muscle and improve strength in a safe and efficient way. A 20-minute Xbody training session is equivalent to at least 90 minutes of traditional strength training
Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS has been used by medical and health professionals for decades mostly as localized EMS. In more recent years it has been adapted to WB-EMS where we put on a suit and stimulate up to 12 muscle groups at the same time, while working through different movements to build functional muscle.
HOW DOES EMS TRAINING WORK?
EMS sends stimulation to the motor neurons which sends a signal to the muscles to make them contract. We are training the neural system and delivering treatment and training at the same time.
We can control different parameters that affect how intense or deep the stimulation is or even what type of muscle fibres we are activating.
During traditional strength training, you would normally activate about 35% of muscle fibres in about 1 to 3 muscle groups that are being targeted in any movement. With EMS training we can demonstrate that 90-95% of muscle fibres are activated in all major muscle groups in the entire body simultaneously.
And that’s WHY 20 minutes of EMS training is more than enough. We can demonstrate that it is equivalent to at least 90 minutes of resistance training in the gym. For the client, it’s the training time that they appreciate as the biggest difference to conventional training.
BENEFITS OF EMS TRAINING
EMS is the fastest way to build strength and grow muscles because of the massive muscle activation and huge hormonal response.
Using EMS can help improve your posture, as the special training programs contain exercises for the back, the lower back, the abs and even the shoulders.
ACHIEVE A TONED BODY
EMS strength training combined with EMS cardio, can help you tone up, burn fat and reduce cellulite. EMS will increase circulation through the skin and fascial tissue, which improves skin tone and reduce cellulite.
With EMS, you can acheive massive muscle activation without putting any pressure on the joints. This makes EMS a safe and highly effective way to train. EMS is ideal after joint replacements or anyone with restricted movement or mobility.
EMS is ideal for improving any muscular imbalances in the body by stimulating ALL of the muscles, including those with a weaker neural connection.
“Not enough time” is no longer a valid excuse. With EMS you can achieve the results of a 90-minute training in just 20 minutes, and the training can be adjusted specifically to help you reach your goals
