First Time

A comprehensive guide to your first EMS experience

Step by Step

A roadmap to your first session


To keep in mind before first session

Check Your Health
Ensure you are in good health and do not have any of the contraindicated conditions listed in our Customer's Consent form before beginning EMS training.
Drink Plenty of Water
Stay well-hydrated before the session. It helps with muscle performance and recovery.
Have a Light Snack
Avoid heavy meals before the session, but don't come on an empty stomach either. Have a light meal or snack 1-2 hours before your training to maintain your energy levels.
Prepare Extra Clothing
You don't need to bring any training clothes, but do bring an extra pair of underwear, socks, and comfortable attire as you'll get wet and sweaty during your training session.


Recommendations after your training

Hydration, Hydration, Hydration
EMS training is highly intensive, demanding extra effort during recovery. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and consider replenishing with electrolytes to support your body's recovery process.
Skip the Alcohol
Consuming alcoholic beverages can hinder your recovery process and lead to unwanted implications. It's advisable to abstain from alcohol for the next 24 hours.
Eat a Balanced Meal
Enjoy a balanced meal or snack containing protein and carbohydrates to help support muscle recovery and replenish energy stores.
Avoid Overexertion
For the next 48 hours, steer clear of high-intensity sports like sprinting, powerlifting, or scoring goals in football. Your muscles deserve a break after all that hard work, so give them a chance to recover and recharge!
Cooldown and Stretch
Lighter activities such as light swimming, yoga, and stretching are recommended to help your muscles relax and reduce the risk of stiffness or soreness.

Frequently asked questions

How old do I need to be to train with EMS?
You must be at least 18 years old to train with EMS at our studio. Seniors are warmly welcomed, with no upper age limit, provided they have no listed health contraindications.
Do I need to be fit to train with EMS?
The versatility of EMS allows us to start at any fitness level, whether you maintain a sedentary lifestyle or are a professional athlete. We tailor the training routine to align with your specific goals.
Who should avoid training with EMS?
To train with EMS, it's important to have overall good health and healthy muscles. Certain conditions like Pacemaker, Diabetes, Epilepsy, Cancer, Blood clots, Hernias, Kidney failure, etc., might affect eligibility. Check the full list of contraindications by checking out the Customer's Consent page.
Is WB-EMS training safe?
WB-EMS activates skeletal muscles without affecting internal organs or the heart. It's been used in rehab since the 1960s. When used correctly under supervision, it's considered a safe treatment. Our certified trainers will ensure proper electrode placement and intensity levels tailored to your body's capacity.
Is there a risk of injury during EMS training?
Similar to any high-intensity training, injuries may occur. However, as we exclusively utilise your body's own weight or minimal weights in our training, the risk of strain and wear injuries are significantly reduced.
What do I need to consider before and after the training?
It's important to feel well before our EMS session. If you're sick, tired, or unwell, it's best to reschedule. Drink enough water before exercising and have a small meal a few hours beforehand for energy. After training, drink lots of water and have a good meal within a few hours for a better recovery and best results.
Do the EMS-generated impulses hurt?
The sensation of muscle stimulation has been likened to the massaging jets of a Jacuzzi, but how it feels can vary significantly from person to person. The intensity of the impulses must be sufficiently robust to activate your muscle fibers but should never be high enough to cause pain.
Will I get muscle soreness after EMS training?
Most people experience significant muscle soreness 1-2 days after their first EMS training session. Muscle soreness occurs when muscle fibers break down to rebuild themselves stronger than before. Soreness tends to be stronger when you challenge your body with something unfamiliar, such as heavier, more intense workouts or a new training method.
How often can I train with EMS?
Effective training consists of 1 to a maximum of 2 EMS sessions per week, tailored to your current fitness routine. After each session, it's crucial to follow a mandatory 48-hour break from intense sports activities. This ensures full body recovery and encourages muscle growth. Disregarding this guideline may result in muscle loss or, in severe cases, injuries.
Do I have to train EMS regularly?
Like any exercise regimen, EMS demands regular commitment. Consistent training is essential for developing, sustaining, and improving muscle strength. EMS is not only effective as a standalone exercise method but also serves as an excellent complement to other sports activities.
Can I combine EMS training with other sports?
Absolutely! EMS training can be seamlessly integrated with other sports and physical activities. It serves as an excellent complement to activities like running, football, baseball, golf, dancing, paddle, skiing, and more. The versatility of EMS allows it to enhance overall fitness and performance in conjunction with various sports.
For which sports is EMS training suitable as extra training?
EMS training serves as an additional workout for athletes across various sports, such as football, golf, winter sports, and athletics. It's particularly utilised by many professional athletes to boost explosiveness and endurance.
When will I see the first results?
Internal changes may become noticeable after 1-3 sessions, while visible transformations usually unfold within a few weeks of consistent training. The speed of these visible results is shaped by individual body composition, the frequency and intensity of your EMS sessions, emphasising the importance of dietary adjustments for achieving optimal outcomes.
What should one consider with breast implants?
After undergoing breast implant surgery, it's crucial to adhere to a standard recovery period of up to 8 weeks, potentially extending in specific cases. Given the diverse types and materials of silicone implants, consulting a health professional before initiating EMS training on the chest area is strongly recommended.

In the rare event of issues like capsular contracture or silicone leakage, doctor's approval is mandatory before starting any EMS training.

Taking into account your operation timeline and preferences, we will customise your training session to exclude exercises engaging the arms, as heavy arm loads may be impractical. Special emphasis will be placed on your abdomen, back, and lower limbs, adapting to individual healing progress. In most cases, the chest area is disabled due to the non-conductive nature of silicone but also developing muscle in this area may pose a risk of implant dislocation and yield undesirable results.
Do I need to bring anything to the training?
At the studio, we provide water, special EMS underwear, and functional suits. You can bring your own training shoes but it's not a must. It's advisable to bring an extra pair of socks and underwear, and consider bringing comfortable clothes for post-workout, as you will be sweaty and a bit wet after your session.
Why are the training suits sprayed with water?
Water is used in WB-EMS training as a conducting medium to enhance muscle activation, ensure proper electrode contact, provide comfort, and cool the skin during electrical stimulation.
