Frequently Asked Questions
What is EMS and how does it work?
Electrical muscle stimulation or EMS is a full body workout targeting multiple muscle groups simultaneously. A traditional workout may only use 50% of your muscles whereas EMS engages up to 98% . This means EMS workouts are very time efficient, hence a 20-minute EMS workout can be the equivalent of a normal 90-minute conventional gym session.
Is EMS safe and does it hurt?
Yes, it is safe. EMS training has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective by reputable sports institutions. And no, EMS training is not painful. The sensation of electrical current stimulating your muscles is unusual but something most people get used to very quickly.
How many times do I need to train and how quickly will I see results?
The idea is to replace one of your conventional training sessions with one EMS workout. To see optimum results, EMS can either be used once a week in addition to one or two conventional workouts, or twice a week, if you are currently pressed for time. Changes can usually be seen after four sessions or less depending on your lifestyle. Scientific studies have shown the following results over a 12-week period using the E-Pulsive training program: 9% body fat loss, 30% increase in strength, 89% of people felt stronger and fitter.
Can I do EMS as an addition to my normal workout routine?
Yes, you can. Ideal additions to EMS training include activities such as yoga or Pilates as well as any type of cardio training. The recovery phase of an EMS session is typically 24 to 48 hours, similar to a conventional training session. High-intensity resistance training, e.g. lifting heavy weights, is another great addition to EMS training but should be avoided during the recovery phase. All other sports related activities can be continued as normal.
What is your cancellation policy?
A cancellation must be made at least 24 hours prior to the training session to be eligible for a free cancellation. For example, if the session is on Friday at 8.00pm, please cancel by Wednesday 7.59pm of that week. You also have the option to reschedule your appointment. In that case, a rescheduling fee of 20 GBP applies. Please notify us at least 6 hours prior to the training session to be eligible for a 20 GBP rescheduling fee. Please note that appointments can only be scheduled once. If you are unable to continue with the EMS training for any reason, you have the option to stop your contract early. Note that each purchased, completed and/or missed session will be charged at the price of a single session.
When do my sessions expire?
Studio sessions are valid for the given contract duration, e.g. 4 studio sessions are valid for 4 weeks, 13 studio sessions are valid for 13 weeks etc. whereas all home sessions are valid for 12 months. After that, an extension fee of £80 can be paid to extend the package for one month.
