Where is EMS training used?
EMS training has been used for years by health and wellness professionals. Physiotherapists use EMS for joint-sparing muscle formation and for targeted back exercises. Elite athletes and models use this equipment along with their training to improve strength and speed. Personal trainers, gyms and beauty centres use this technology focusing on the fitness and beauty enhancements it offers which includes simulation of metabolism, tightening of connective tissue, cellulite reduction, body shaping, and more.
Is EMS training safe?
Training and therapy using EMS is not dangerous. During your EMS training, you will experience small low-frequency currents contracting your muscles. Hence, the impulses do not seem foreign to your body and do not reach the organs.
Why is EMS training more effective than conventional training at the gym?
In short, EMS activates 300+ muscles (over 90% of the muscles fibres) at the same time during your 20-minute workout. This also includes deep muscles which are difficult to target at the conventional gym. Moreover, EMS training comprises of irregular muscle fibre simulation which results in an increased muscle fibre creation at a faster rate, allowing you to gain more muscles. All in all, you will see faster results!
Is EMS technology new?
No! EMS technology was first invented in 1902, has been used for years in physiotherapy, by athletes and models and through Spark is now available to you! At Spark we use the latest technology by XBody.

Can I lose weight with EMS?
