Speed - Only 20 Minutes
People in today's society lack the time to exercise due to work and family activities.
Electric Muscle Stimulation training only requires 20 minutes, which is why this method is so popular.
The workout is the equivalent to a 90 minute conventional training, thus shortening the time spent on getting in shape.
Total Body Workout
During the workout, the entire body is stimulated simultaneously. Inside the technical clothing there are pairs of electrodes located by each major muscle group. The impulses occur virtually at the same time within each muscle group.
Depending on the body part the intensity could be separately adjusted, while the original pulse intensity is maintained in the other areas of the body. This is one of the keys to the effectiveness of this technology, as even when we focus on training the arm our thighs are also being developed.
Compared with conventional strength training the EMS technology is significantly more effective. About 40 micro contractions are created per second, which is equal to 36,000 contractions during the 20-minute workout session. This corresponds to about 15 series of workouts per muscle group, which is hardly feasible in the gym.
Fat Burning Effect
As in all trainings, the fat burning effect does not happen in a direct way. Due to the intensity and efficiency of the E-Fit trainings, fat loss and muscle formation occur quickly upon following a proper diet plan.
While your Personal Trainer helps you train intensely, you will take in extra oxygen in order to recover. This extra oxygen will cause your metabolism to rise. The scientific name for this fat-burning effect is called excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC).
When you're done with your workout and your body begins returning to its normal resting metabolic rate, it burns fat to recover since you've exhausted stored carbs during your workout. Understand that it takes a lot of energy and a lot of calories for your resting metabolism to return to "normal."
And the best thing about EPOC is that your body will stay in fat-burning mode for up to 48 hours.
The EMS devices are equipped with a special program that effectively treats the symptoms of cellulite. Cellulite is developed by the weakening of the connective tissue; and as fat cells accumulate between the skin and the muscle tissues, visible bulges appear mainly on the thighs, gluteus and abdomen. These tissues can be stimulated with lower pulse depth, which is increasing circulation and stimulating the escape of waste products from the problematic areas. Due to the involuntarily increased muscle work and metabolism, the energy consumption of cells increases and with proper diet weight loss and body shaping can be achieved.
Back Pain Relief
One of the most important effects of the electric stimulation is the capability to reach muscles located deeper within the body. Some of these muscles are the deep back muscles and the muscles located next to the spine. They are responsible for our body posture, but have been weakened by the modern sedentary lifestyle, leading to back complaints. Electric Muscle Stimulation helps to strengthen these muscles and re-enable them to perform their functions, which is to hold the spine properly. As a result of the re-instated posture, back pains can be eliminated efficiently.
Easy On The Joints
Many people in the general population have sensitive joints. A major benefit of EMS training is it is done without using additional weight, as the load is produced by the intensity of the impulses. Therefore the overload and injury to the joints can be avoided. In the hands of a qualified Personal Trainer, workouts are tailored to appropriate levels for sensitive joints.
Adaptable Regardless Of Age & Fitness Level
Depending on the fitness level of the individual, very small loads can be induced. By slowly increasing the load, very unfit individuals and people of elderly age can develop so called muscle consciousness, which helps to improve muscle condition quickly and efficiently.
Athletic Training & Body Building
There are muscles that are difficult to develop, but by choosing the appropriate training program these muscles can be targeted during the workout. Asymmetrical muscle development can be caused by the nature of the sport played and the nature of daily work activity. Even body builders can experience this problem.
With EMS, programs can be designed for muscle gain and for the maintenance of muscle weight without putting too much stress on the joints. This training is similar to weight training, as it is focusing on the development of muscles. Throughout the duration of the program, low-frequency muscle tensing and complete body exercises should be performed, focusing on one muscle group at a time with greater intensity and pulse width. According to the customer’s needs, the length of contractions and the resting period between these contractions can be varied.

FAQ's WHY Personal20®
Are there any contra-indications that would prevent me from doing an Electro Fitness workout?
This training isn't recommended for people with heart disease, pacemakers, or other implanted electric devices, during pregnancy or breast feeding period, or people with a predisposition to epileptic seizures or fitting.
Can I get an electrical shock during the workout?
No, there is no way you get an electric shock during workout as the equipment operates at low voltage using a battery. The intensity of the generated impulses is max.0.05 Watt RMS.
Do I need to have any particular training equipment?
No. At Personal20® we provide you with everything you need. You just need to show up. We provide you with the appropriate undergarments. Then we will dress you in the suit with electrodes that is light and made with antibacterial breathable material.
What is the difference between E-Fit and other muscle stimulators?
Most home use and other muscle stimulators are designed to be applied on passive muscles. During E-Fit sessions muscle stimulation is applied on active muscles, combined with a sequence of trainer-instructed exercises.
How many sessions should I do per week in order to see results?
It is advisable to do either once or twice a week, depending on your goals. Three times is the max however a 48 hour rest period in between workouts is required. After 4 sessions you will feel initial results. After 10 sessions, along with a healthy diet, striking results will appear.
Do I have to move or exercise during the workout?
Yes, you do. By performing the exercises suited to your capabilities and demonstrated by our Certified Trainers. Performing the right exercises in line with the rhythm of the impulses significantly augments the favorable effects of Electro Fitness workout as opposed to exercising alone.
