Post pandemic, technology is increasingly shaping the way consumers access fitness. Apps and wearables are helping people reach their goals by giving them greater insight into their training, online and digital offerings grew exponentially during lockdowns and continue to hold their own.
Electro-muscle stimulation (EMS) takes the merging of fitness and technology to a whole new level for personal trainers, using the very latest in high tec fitness to ensure clients see results sooner compared to any other workout.
For EMS qualified PTs, a significant advantage is the mobile nature of the miha bodytec i-Body device, which allows you to take a high-tech, innovative exercise option on the road. All the necessary equipment can be packed away into a suitcase and taken wherever clients may be. This allows you to target those without a gym membership, those who prefer to workout in the comfort of their own home, or don’t like the typical gym environment and those who have been shielding and might not feel comfortable venturing out yet, all while keeping overheads and rent at a minimum.
EMS training sessions are conducted one-on-one or one-on-two, allowing you to offer a personal aspect for clients 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 to the gym. As Covid rules continue to relax, and people return to the workplace, taking the portable EMS device to offices and training clients during their lunch break is also an option.
With only one in seven UK citizens currently holding a gym membership, EMS training is the ideal solution to help you stand out from the very accomplished PT crowd, and appeal to a nation who are calling out for alternative ways to keep active. This, coupled with the increasing interest in fitness technology, and the fact that EMS sessions are only 20 minutes, allowing you to fit in more clients at a higher price point, 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.
