WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WORKING OUT

WITH EMS?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

Benefits of EMS training are endless.

For everyone from elite athletes to non-exercisers EMS is helping people bypass their natural limitations and build dense active muscle, burn serious fat, and feel stronger every day.

With continued use, EMS helps users to activate dormant or weakly connected muscle in their body and achieve maximum balance front-to-back, left-to-right, and top-to-bottom. Ensuring proper posture and strong mind-muscle connection.

EMS activates on average 88% of your total skeletal muscle mass each workout. In addition, EMS is more effective than conventional training as it recruits over 90% of the activated muscle compared to 30%-50% muscle activation conventionally. The customisable impulse replicates our brains natural electric impulse even bypassing weakly connected muscles allowing us to activate all muscle fibre types and deep-seated tissue while ignoring user error and/or possible nervous system issues.

WHAT MAKES EMS SO EFFECTIVE?

WHAT ADDITIONAL BENEFITS DOES WORKING OUT WITH EMS PROVIDE?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

When the muscle is working, the area is intensively stimulated. The increased blood flow has a positive effect on the skin and circulatory system as the superficial and deep fascial layer is stimulated, the body appears more toned, and this helps to reduce cellulite!

After your training, you will feel refreshed, energised, and flooded with positive post-workout hormones.

HOW MUCH MUSCLE CAN I EXPECT TO GAIN WITH EMS?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

Working with EMS allows us to build dense, active muscle mass 5x faster than conventional training due to high levels of muscle breakdown releasing the enzyme Human Growth Hormone (A.K.A HGH or youth hormone). During your 20-minute workout, HGH levels can reach 3x that of conventional training.

At Amped, we utilize effective hypertrophy techniques as well as customised impulse parameters to gain serious muscle mass.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

You can expect to feel results within 2-4 workouts!

After the first workout you will feel a strong muscle activation soreness that is activating dormant muscle tissue. As you get stronger and more fit you will notice a general soreness that lasts about 48 hours.

Your body fat % should begin to drop by week 6.

IS EMS SAFE?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

YES! 

The impulse begins and ends in the muscle fibre only effecting the peripheral nervous system and blood flow. Our technology is manufactured by XBody World and is the safest and most consistent system to work with on the market.

WHAT IS EMS?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

Electric Muscle Stimulation (or EMS) is a total body workout where voluntary movement is enhanced by involuntary contractions.

Our muscles naturally contract through electric impulses (bioelectronics) in conventional movement. EMS training makes use of this and maximises its effects by applying controllable external electric impulses directly above the working muscle. The natural bioelectronic response of the muscle is intensified creating ultra-effective muscle strain.

CAN EMS BE USED LONG TERM?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

It definitely can be!

Just like conventional training working out is a regular habit and should be made a priority long term to maintain good health and fitness.

Potential side effects from high intensity workouts such as high creatine release are managed by balancing strain and recovery 50/50

EMS allows us to get the most of our muscles in the least amount of time committed.

HOW MUCH TIME CAN I SAVE WITH EMS?

Leisure time is valuable- too valuable to spend with time-consuming and ineffective training sessions. Amped personal training combines the aspect of time saving without compromise. Only 2 times per week for 20 minutes is necessary to get you to your goals! Comparatively, 3-6 days in the gym lifting weights for 1-2 hours is expected for results based conventional training.

EMS allows us to save more time for what is important in your life!

HOW MUCH BODY FAT CAN I EXPECT TO LOSE WITH EMS?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

Absolutely! In the first phase of training you should expect to gain dense active muscle mass that burns mega calories. As that muscle mass is built and your metabolism increases you will lose inches and in the second phase fat deposits are targeted. After all, the more muscle mass you have the more body fat is burned at rest!

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

For your Consultation and Introductory Sessions you just need to bring water and running shoes the rest will be provided. 

For all workouts following you need shoes, water, your underlayer (cotton clothing) and lots of energy!

DO I NEED TO CHANGE MY DIET?

Device1_edited_edited_edited.jpg

When working with EMS you need to increase your water intake to 4L per day and increase your daily caloric intake to ensure you build dense active muscle mass that will eventually burn fat for you. Our version of metabolic reconditioning.

Ensuring proper nutrient timing, type, and portions are key to long term success.
