FAQ

How much time can I save by training at Body Symmetry?

A general gym workout, including a warm-up, averages 1-1.5 hours per session. To see and feel results, you need to train at least 2-3 times a week which adds up to six hours or more per week. Many people cannot afford to spend this required amount of time getting fit and keeping in shape. With Body Symmetry you only need 20 minutes per week to get comparable results to several hours of conventional weight workout.

Is EMS dangerous?

No. The use of low frequency impulse current is widely used in training and rehabilitation therapy. Muscles are electro chemical organs and need electrical impulses from the central nervous system to contract. EMS technology uses this natural principle but is able to intensify the contraction by applying electrodes directly above the muscle

Are there any side-effects from EMS?

No. With Body Symmetry, the EMS training is based on low frequency impulses and does not harm the body. The body needs electrical impulses from our central nervous system, which leads to a muscle contraction and EMS only uses this natural principle in a more intense and effective way. There are no known side effects of EMS training.

What does Sports Science say about EMS?

       

Numerous studies at the University of Bayreuth (2002 – 2003) and Erlangen-Nürnberg (2009), at the German Sporthochschule Köln (2008), as well as the heart clinic in Bad Oeynhausen (2010) have shown the effectiveness of EMS training. Trained and untrained people achieve visible and tangible results in very little time. As a matter of fact, not only general muscle-building is achieved: EMS-training works excellently for increasing an athlete’s speed, due to the fast twitching (FT) muscle fibers being activated first by the external impulse. EMS also works great when certain areas are targeted: for example buttocks, stomach or back, especially for reduction of backpain. Furthermore and most importantly: EMS – unlike conventional training – puts no stress on the joints
