what is Ems training?

EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) is the stimulation of muscle contraction using electrical impulses. iFitzone offers EMS fitness training programs that can be used for reconditioning and strengthening of muscles.

Does it sound too scientific? It is actually quite simple.

The impulses are generated by a device and delivered through electrodes to the skin surface above the muscles to be stimulated. The impulses cause the muscles to contract, so the result resembles the actual movement and regular contractions of the muscles.

EMS workout uses electric impulses that are similar to the body’s natural processes. These additional impulses are stimulating muscles via the adjustable full-body Easy Motion Training Suit. This state-of-the-art technology gives all the benefits of a 90-minute workout in just 20 minutes! To achieve optimal results EMS exercises should be done 2x per week with 20 minutes per session.

IFIT ZONE EMS Training course will result in a reduction in fat while gaining more muscle mass, which boosts metabolism.

Benefits of EMS training:

Lose Weight & Build Muscle

EMS training is an optimal solution for lasting weight-loss and fat removal. Healthy eating alone is not enough – you need effective, regular training to reduce fat in problem areas. With EMS training you can focus on specific problem areas.

SAVE TIME 

“Time is money” as the old saying goes, and it is especially relevant in today’s busy world. With EMS you can achieve the results of a 90-minute training session in just 20 minutes, including strengthening and cardio sessions according to your preference.

ACHIEVE A TONED BODY

Full-body EMS strength training combined with cardio sessions can help you get your muscles toned, burn fat, and reduce cellulite. Circulation of the muscular and connective tissues will be enhanced which can lead to firmer and more toned skin as well as playing an important role in cellulite reduction.

RELIEVE JOINTS 

Unlike regular training with weights, EMS Fitness Training will not put additional pressure on your joints and with the help of a specialist, it can be used after an injury or with joint pain as well.

BALANCE OUT THE MUSCULAR SYSTEM

Tactical EMS can also be used if there are muscular imbalances or underdeveloped muscles in the body. Targeting the appropriate muscle groups is easy with the professional placement of the electrodes in the specialized EMS training suit.

IMPROVE POSTURE

Using EMS can help improve your posture, as the special training programs contain exercises for the back, the lower back, the abs and even the shoulders.

Health & Rehabilitation

EMS training has a therapeutic effect as it promotes a feeling of physical and mental well-being.

Pain reduction: Back pain is the most common ailment among the general population. One of the main causes is a muscular imbalance in the torso caused by poor posture and a sedentary lifestyle. EMS training targets and strengthens the deeper layers of the torso muscle group which helps alleviate back pain as these deep muscles are difficult to activate with conventional methods.

Rehabilitation and mobility: After an injury or an operation, your muscle volume and strength decreases. Training with EMS provides optimal support when it comes to gently rebuilding a specific muscle or muscle group. All exercises can be performed in either a horizontal or a standing position.

Incontinence: Bladder weakness is a common and embarrassing condition. EMS training can prevent and relieve incontinence by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles after just a few sessions. This is especially beneficial for women suffering from post-pregnancy bladder weakness.

The science behind EMS training

Prof. Dr. Fritzsche, a heart surgeon and chief physician at the Sana Herzzentrum in Cottbus, and his team have played an important role in developing and improving the Easy Motion Skin®.

Fritzsche recognised the weaknesses of the existing EMS technologies and developed the world’s first wireless internally connected EMS system as part of a project supported by the Federal Ministry of Science. He also patented the first dry electrode, thereby making EMS training possible without additional moisture.

During the development period he initiated and supervised more than 2000 training sessions with cardiac insufficiency patients at the Herzzentrum Nordrhein-Westfalen. The incredible results were described by him and his team in several publications.

The most important results included a significant increase in the absorption of oxygen and in patients’ strength, an increase in the cardiac ejection fraction, a drop in blood pressure and blood sugar levels, and (as a secondary effect) a reduction of lower back pain.

Prof. Dr. Dirk Fritzsche and his team, along with other experts who have carried out research into the medical effects of EMS training on patients with a wide range of symptoms, are considered to be the pioneers, inventors and trailblazers for the wireless EMS technology used in the Easy Motion Skin®.

Prof. Dr. Dirk Fritzsche has used this medical and scientific expertise to develop the world’s first wireless EMS training tool with dry electrodes: the Easy Motion Skin®. It combines state-of-the-art technology and medically proven knowledge in a totally new dimension.

safety

Before your train:

The muscle-building programs are limited to the maximum dosage recommended by doctors. The highly intensive muscle building power training sessions should only be done twice per week, with an interval of at least 36 hours between the 85 Hz-training sessions. However, you can take advantage of all the regenerating, as well as the endurance and metabolism-stimulating programs of Easy Motion Skin with more frequency. The limitation only applies to the highly intensive power-training sessions and is for your own protection.

Drink plenty of liquid (at least 0.5 liters of warm water or mineral drink) before training.

Health requirements:

EMS training should only be used after consulting a physician with the following medical problems:

  • Diabetes
  • Febrile illnesses
  • Acute bacterial or viral processes
  • Bleeding, severe bleeding (hemophilia)
  • Epilepsy
  • Cardiac history
  • Pregnancy
  • Severe circulatory disorders
  • Abdominal wall or inguinal hernia
  • Tuberculosis
  • Tumor diseases
  • Advanced arteriosclerosis, arterial circulatory disorders
  • Severe Neurological Disorders
