The Body Lab studio specializes in EMS training. This allows us to provide a full-time personal training service, which we consider to be the major factor in enabling you to reach your training goals in a faster and efficient way. Although the format of each session will vary, we wanted to give you an idea of what to expect.
Your EMS training session starts with a pre-workout consultation with your personal trainer. You’ll discuss the structure of the session as well as any particular objectives you have or areas of the body you wish to focus on. This will also give you an opportunity to flag any injuries you might have so that your trainer can adapt the exercises accordingly.
2. GET INTO GEAR
After changing into specialized base layer clothing, your trainer will help you into the suit. The suit consists of a vest, shorts as well as arm and calf straps. The electrodes within the suit can all be individually adjusted for your body shape, in order to ensure an optimal fit.
3. WARM UP
Once you’re ready to go, your personal trainer will slowly raise the intensity of the electric impulses, keeping them low at the beginning while performing warm-up exercises with you.
4. READY, SET, GO!
The EMS training lasts 20 minutes and each session is different. We use all kinds of equipment but the majority of exercises are performed with your bodyweight only. The resistance you experience during your session will be much greater than with conventional training due to the effect of the electric impulses. This means that you can train with much lighter weights than you are accustomed to, and the training will still feel much more challenging and be much more effective than what you are used to.
5. RELAX AND STRETCH
The EMS training winds down with a special muscle relaxation programme as well as guided stretching exercises with the assistance of your trainer.
