Science behind electro muscle stimulation
Step into the world of physiology and innovation as we unravel the scientific principles that underpin the effectiveness of Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS).
Harness the power of EMS & reclaim hours in your week.
Electrify your workout with electro muscle stimulation.
Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) traces its beginnings back to the 18th century when Italian scientist Luigi Galvani first discovered the concept of using electrical impulses to stimulate muscles. Over the centuries, EMS technology evolved and found applications in various fields, eventually becoming a revolutionary fitness and rehabilitation tool.
Today, EMS works by delivering controlled electrical impulses through electrodes placed on targeted muscles. These impulses trigger involuntary muscle contractions, similar to those during natural exercise, making it an efficient and customizable workout tool for strength training, rehabilitation, and recovery. EMS is often used in conjunction with specific exercises to enhance its effectiveness.

How does EMS training work?
EMS Training is a new scientifically proven kind of personal training. Different exercises are enhanced with an electric impulse which helps to contract up to 90% of the muscles at a much deeper and intense level as one could do in a regular training. Our EMS training is so efficient, that when working out with us once a week for 20 minutes, it can allow you to reach the same goals you would normally spend hours in the gym for.
Absolutely nothing. We have the undergarments and device, so you do not need to wear a certain outfit. Please just be sure to drink plenty of water!
During EMS training different full-body systems, such as the one of world market leader miha bodytec (which is used by MYOCYTE), are used. Up to 10 large-area pairs of electrodes are integrated into a sophisticated vest and belt system, thus enabling the stimulation of almost all large muscle groups. The stimulation happens through an electric impulse. This is a natural process as every muscle contraction is an electrical impulse from the brain to the muscle. The muscle or the nerves of the muscles do not differentiate whether the impulse comes from the brain or from outside – it reacts with contraction.
If you combine the body’s own contraction of the muscle with the contraction caused by the electrical impulse from outside, you achieve a significantly higher training efficiency – especially in regards to the time expenditure.
There are no age restrictions. EMS training is low impact (easy on the joints) and each muscle group can be separately targeted.
If you feel uncertain, please give us a call and we can discuss your questions further.
Training with us usually takes 20 minutes- Yep that’s it! The time may vary a little depending on the training goal. The first training takes about 90 minutes because we want to know exactly who you are, what training experience you have and what goals are really important to you.
With effective EMS training, you will feel results after just a few weeks for which classic strength training requires many hours of training!
Regular EMS training promotes general muscle building and improves posture, general fitness, speed and endurance. Targeted strengthening of the back muscles and the reduction of weight as well as shaping and toning problematic zones is possible as well. The advantage of the EMS method is that all muscle groups in the back are addressed at the same time. Even the deep muscles, which are difficult to activate during conventional training, are reached.
Yes, because EMS training only targets the skeletal muscles, the organ muscles or the heart are not reached. In addition EMS training does not require to use heavy weights, which makes it safer for the joints.
The advantage of EMS lies in the enormous stimulation of the fast twitching muscle fibers, which are particularly involved in building muscle and generating strength. In classic strength training, these are only included towards the end of a set, with correspondingly high intensities. This creates great stress on joints and ligaments that does not occur during EMS training due to the lack of additional stress.
Because we are the only EMS Studio in Wisconsin and conveniently located in Milwaukee and Brookfield.
Our members receive a regular body analysis on our high end body analysis device (InBody 570). This allows us to see the body composition from the beginning to specifically address problematic regions. In the long term, the successes that we can achieve together will also become visible.
