FAQ

EMS stands for “Electro Muscle Stimulation”. EMS is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electrical impulses. Every movement in the body is produced by an electrical impulse sent from the brain to the muscle fibers. In conventional training these electrical signals cause muscle contraction and trigger movement. Through using this natural principle, EMS is able to intensify the process to reach deeper muscle layers which are hard to activate through conventional training. This is achieved by applying EMS electrodes directly above the muscles. Your EMS-technician can control each muscle group by adjusting the training intensity according to your individual goals and comfort level.
The benefit are increased muscle definition, strength and endurance. Body By Impulse uses electro stimulation to achieve stronger and more intense muscle contraction than a voluntary exertion can reach alone. Depending on intensity and individual goals, you can build muscle and achieve better definition while also making them stronger and more responsive.   With EMS training you gain rapid strength in a shorter period of time. In fact 20 minutes of EMS training is as effective as 90 minutes of a general wight workout according to research results.   EMS is gentle on your Joints EMS does not cause the high joint stress associated with mechanical training. There is no strain on your joints as you don't have to use any weights. The intensity of your training is regulated through electro stimulation. EMS training is not dependent on high impact training, therefore the risks of strain and injury are greatly reduced.   Compensation of muscular imbalance Harmful, one-sided strain is avoided since all of the major muscle groups are trained at the same time. Your EMS-technician can target specific problem areas and help strengthen weaker muscle groups to correct imbalance.   Smoother and firmer skin EMS contractions stimulate collagen production and encourages blood flow to the skin. We are able to calibrate the EMS device specifically to combat cellulite and firm up the upper tissue layers. This setting can regulate the depth to which the electric impulses protrude, keeping them at the upper tissue levels, thereby targeting the specific problem areas. Muscles visibly stand out with greater definition and firmness. As a result metabolism is quickened.
EMS targets all of the muscle connective tissue layers, from superficial to deep, with low -frequency electric impulses. During EMS training, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with each contraction. Muscle contractions are stronger and more intense than voluntary exertion.
Most people can do EMS training. If you have a health condition which prevents you from participating in conventional sport, please consult with your doctor first. the training can not be used by people with heart disease, pacemaker or other implanted electric devises, during pregnancy, and with predisposition to epileptic seizures.
No, there are no known side effects. EMS is based on low-frequency impulses and does not harm the body. The body needs electrical impulses from our central nervous system for each movement. EMS uses this natural principle in a more intense and effective way.
It is not recommended. The high intensity of EMS requires a 2-3 day regeneration period. It is important to have sufficient rest time to avoid overtraining and exhaustion.
Combination of a healthy diet and 2 EMS session per week will produce visible result after 8 sessions.
Your Initial workout session will cause some soreness, as the deep and hard to reach muscles are effected. However, this will gradually disappear with regular training.
At Body by Impulse we provide it all for your first session.
Yes you can as long as it is made of at least 75% cotton, tight fitting with 3/4 sleeve and 3/4 legs.
