EMS Training Caters To People Of All Ages

The view that the quest for fitness is best left to the young is, sadly, one held by many of those who have passed what they perceive to be their prime.

This transition is commonly accompanied by an expectation that time will inevitably take its toll on the waistline and gradually lead to increasing physical limitations. Such beliefs, though widespread, have no foundation in reality. In practice. it is often the fear that the effort required to overcome declining fitness levels is simply beyond their capabilities which leads most to adopt this attitude.

Enter EMS

Until the advent of electro-muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, other forms of training failed to cater for the fitness needs of people of all ages. Based largely on challenging resistance exercises involving the use of weights and other specialised equipment, the effort involved is certainly beyond the abilities of some, and sufficiently daunting for others to choose to avoid the risk that they too would prove unable to cope.

Among those who chose to bite the bullet and sign up at their local gym, the many hours required in exchange for what is essentially rather slow progress continues to deter many from persevering long enough to achieve their intended goals.

Elderly need exercise

The truth is that it does become harder to meet the physical challenges of conventional exercise as one gets older, particularly since our more sedentary modern lifestyle and dietary choices do little to maintain the fitness levels typical of earlier generations.

Unlike bench presses and bicep curls, Body20 EMS Studio caters for all ages, as well as the limited levels of fitness that are the legacy of modern living, in combination with the advancing years.

Benefits for all

EMS offers a means for anyone to better define their existing muscle tissue, to lose fat, to build bulk and strength, and even to reduce cellulite, yet without the need to lift, push or pull anything.

Whether you are in your forties, fifties, sixties or even older, there is a programme suitable for you; one with which you will be able to cope safely, and that is well within your current physical abilities.

It achieves this by generating the same muscular contractions required for physical exercise with the application of pulsed electrical charges that provide 150 times the workout without using any weight. One 20-minute, personalised session weekly at a Body20 studio could produce impressive visible results in just a few weeks, for everyone from teenagers to pensioners.
