Technology is increasingly shaping the way we access fitness.
Apps and wearables, for example, are helping people to faster reach their goals by giving them greater insight into their training. Electro-muscle stimulation (EMS) takes the merging of fitness technology to a whole new level, using the very latest tech to ensure results sooner compared to any other workout.
For EMS qualified personal trainers a significant advantage is the mobile nature of the device. All the necessary equipment can be packed away into a suitcase and taken on the road. This allows PTs to target those without a gym membership and those who prefer to workout in the comfort of their own home, as well as keeping overheads and rent at a minimum.
EMS also affords PTs the opportunity to appeal to those clients don’t like the typical gym environment.
Sessions are conducted one-on-one or one-on-two, offering a personal aspect for those who find the gym floor or group exercise studio intimidating. And because just one 20-minute session a week is all that’s required to see results, EMS is a great option for busy professionals who can’t dedicate regular time for the gym. As Covid rules relax, and people return to the workplace, PT’s can also take the portable EMS device to offices and train clients during their lunch break.
Alex Parker is an EMS qualified PT who carries his kit on his motorbike. “Using miha bodytec has made me a more reliable trainer, I can be with clients in minutes and I’m never concerned with delays. It’s the perfect service to bring in more revenue but also support a healthy work-life balance. Because the sessions are short, I can see the same number of clients in half the time. It’s about working smarter.”
It’s time to stand out
With only one in seven UK citizens holding a gym membership, EMS really is the perfect solution to help trainers stand out and appeal to a nation who are calling out for alternative ways to keep active. This, coupled with the increasing interest in fitness technology, means the opportunity for personal trainers to succeed with EMS is huge. With retention rates for EMS sitting at more than 85%, there’s never been a better time to get on board.
