How is EMS training different from a gym?

In our previous blog post, we discussed what electro muscle stimulation training is, but you may be wondering how it differs from conventional workouts. EMS training offers a number of benefits that differentiate this type of workout with the workouts you might be familiar with in a traditional gym.

So, how is EMS training different from a gym?

Unlike traditional gyms where muscles worked are limited by the exercise, by wearing our Miha Bodytec EMS training suits, 8 muscle groups are constantly stimulated for the entire session. Instead of spending 4 hours working out individual muscles, sessions only need to be 25 minutes to give an effective full-body workout. It may be short, but it is intense as you will spend most of the workout working to keep your heart rate high! Instead of making daily visits to your local gym, a single weekly visit to an Iron BodyFit studio in London is all you need to make you stronger, fitter, and to start seeing visible changes to your body.

Gyms can be intimidating, so a big difference between a regular gym and the Iron BodyFit EMS studio is the environment. At most, only two other people will be working out with you, so not only will you get plenty of support and attention from your personal trainer, you’ll be able to relax and feel more comfortable when working out. 

Unlike working out in a traditional gym, when doing electro muscle stimulation, you will move to ensure a full range of motion, however the training suit will do most of the hard work and stimulate your muscles for you.

In a gym where you might use weights or machines for resistance training, or a treadmill or stationary bike for cardio training, in an EMS workout, all you need is your training suit and you’re good to go! Unlike resistance or cardio training, as it stimulates the muscles directly there is no stress on your joints, making it suitable for individuals with degenerative joint disease.
