General questions about EMS

EMS stands for Electric Muscle Stimulation. Technically, EMS is a total body workout using impulse currents. In this context, it might be helpful to know that our muscles naturally contract through electric impulses (bioelectronics). The EMS training makes use of this effect. By employing hardly noticeable external electric impulses, which optimize the body’s natural muscle contractions, EMS achieves a maximum result in minimum time. The electric impulses are delivered via electrodes using an electrode vest combined with conductive underwear, which will be provided by FiTin25.
The EMS full-body workout activates over 90% of the muscles fibers at the same time during each contraction. In contrast to conventional fitness training, EMS immediately activates the fast-twitch fibers in your muscles. Those fibers are normally activated only after long and intensive conventional training. Hence, EMS training produces a much stronger and faster result. The training effect with EMS can be up 15 times more efficient than training in a conventional gym.

Yes, a 25 minutes session equates to approx. 3 hours of conventional exercise According to various scientific studies. During a single training session EMS activates the whole muscular system of the body. In just 25 minutes EMS stimulates up to 10 muscle groups with agonist, antagonist and deeper lying muscles around 150 times in 4 second intervals. As the training is very intensive, we advise only 1 - 2 sessions per week.

EMS is suitable for users between 18-70 and all fitness levels, including post pregnancy. However, if you have any pre-existing conditions and illnesses, please consult your doctor before you start your EMS training program. In case of an acute febrile disease or if you are wearing a cardiac pacemaker you cannot exercise with EMS.

Safety of EMS

Low-frequency current stimulation as used in EMS is harmless. During the training with current stimulation, the human impulse is simply fortified by the additional impulse from the outside. Therefore, the electrical impulse seems natural to the body.

No. The low-frequency impulse exclusively activates the striated skeletal muscles, meaning it does not reach the organs or the heart.

No. According to a number of official studies, there are absolutely no negative side effects for healthy individuals. On the contrary, there are a lot of positive benefits. Electrical muscle stimulation has been widely used as a physiotherapy technique since the 1950s.

No. The low-frequency impulse exclusively activates the striated skeletal muscles, meaning it does not reach the organs or the heart.

EMS Benefits

Electrical muscle stimulation technology offers all the advantages of a conventional intense workout, but in a much less time. It is a fast, safe and effective way to meat your fitness goals such as toning your body, losing weight, build your muscles, improve your general fitness etc. EMS training is the solution for a fitter, healthier body with just 1 to 2 sessions per week.

You can achieve your goals with 25-minute sessions once or twice per week

Yes. During the first phase of training, you can expect to start shaping your body. During the second phase, the fat depots will be broken down resulting in substantial fat removal and weight loss. Due to the increased muscle activity during an EMS session, your body will also burn more calories. However, weight loss can only be achieved by a healthy nutrition plan combined with regular exercise. Therefore, EMS training is the perfect complement to a healthy nutritional plan for effective, long-term weight loss.

Yes, after a slipped disk event, exercising with EMS is recommended. The training helps you to strengthen the deeper layers of muscles, which helps to support the stability of the spine consequently relieving and stabilizing your back.

EMS training is specifically tailored to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, thus improving or eliminating the muscle weakness in that area as well incontinence issues. Furthermore, EMS is a gentle solution for your postnatal exercises to regain your pre-pregnancy shape. However, EMS cannot be used during pregnancy.
