FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (PART 1)
1. HOW DOES EMS TRAINING WORK?
PhysioFix’s EMS training is a full-body workout that activates up to 90% of muscles simultaneously. With our technology, and the guidance of our certified trainers, muscle contractions are more intense and of higher quality than traditional body exertion alone. As opposed to conventional weight training, EMS training activates deeper muscle groups, which leads to better balance among the body’s muscles and increased core stability. The PhysioFix EMS device stimulates multiple muscle groups simultaneously, allowing for repeated activation throughout the body. Clients always do their EMS training under the guidance of a personal trainer who can activate eight muscle groups individually—the lower back, stomach, biceps and glutes, for example—depending on your goals and needs.
2. HOW IS PHYSIOFIX DIFFERENT FROM OTHER EMS PROVIDERS?
PhysioFix studios specialize in EMS training. We don’t offer other forms of training. We provide full-time personal training services, a major factor in enabling you to reach your training goals in less time. After consulting clients, our trainers use the most intense and effective EMS program that is suitable for each individual. A personal trainer guides every step of your training, ensuring you get the full benefit of every workout. Our EMS training expertise also allows us to work with a simple price and membership system, without any hidden or additional costs for extra services.
3. WHY SHOULD I ONLY TRAIN TWICE A WEEK?
Your body needs to recover from workouts to achieve effective muscular adaptation and physical functioning. In other words, more training does not translate to better results. Research shows that recovery and adaptation periods after whole-body PhysioFix EMS training sessions are significantly longer than for weight and resistance training. PhysioFix EMS training is so intense and effective that you only need one or two sessions per week depending on your fitness goals. This is 2 sessions for 20 minute per week.
4. HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You’ll feel a difference after your first EMS training session. As your body releases endorphins, and as most major muscle groups in your body are activated, you will experience increased physical awareness, resulting in improved posture. After a day or two, you’ll feel some muscle stiffness. This is normal and indicative of your body’s recovery process. You will feel stronger within about four weeks. And different muscles will improve to coordinate movements more effectively. After roughly six to eight sessions (or 6 to 8 weeks), you will see and feel a difference from the EMS training in the form of gradually increased muscle formation and a possible reduction in body fat (depending on your diet). As with conventional training, EMS training should be done regularly to ensure optimal results.
