Electro-Muscular Stimulation, or EMS, is a training system based on the electrical stimulation of a large number of muscle groups (8 or 10 muscle groups).
It stimulates muscle mass providing benefits such as resistance, strength, energy expenditure and increase in muscle mass. The impulses are generated by a compact device and then transmitted to the desired muscle groups via carefully located electrodes. By mimicking the signals sent via the central nervous system, EMS impulses cause muscle contraction. When combined with exercise, EMS creates up to 40% more strength.
Yes, it provides you with greater energy expenditure, therefore, fat burning will be higher. Training with electrostimulation transforms moderate training into high intensity training.
Yes, it improves the quality of muscle contraction, so the stimulus will be greater and there will be a greater increase in muscle mass.
With electrostimulation you can achieve muscle hypertrophy.
We tell you here all the benefits of EMS.
Yes, Wiemspro is an FDA approved device. Low-frequency electrical impulse is widely used in training and rehabilitation therapy. Muscles are electrochemical organs and receive electrical impulses from the central nervous system to contract. EMS technology adheres to this natural principle – simply intensifying the contraction by applying electrodes directly above the muscle.
It varies according to the person. However, studies show that just after 8 weeks, muscle and strength is improved by 31%. When accompanied by a healthy diet and lifestyle, you should see a noticeable difference after your first 4 weeks.
We recommend training 2 times per week with 48 hours in between sessions.
EMS equipment should not be used on people with heart disease, cancer history, pacemakers or other electronic medical devices, Rhabdomyolysis, or during pregnancy.
EMS is also not recommended for people with a predisposition to epileptic seizures or convulsions, infectious diseases, prone to hemorrhaging or heavy bleeding (hemophilia), an abdominal wall or inguinal hernia, arteriosclerosis, high fever, blood pressure related illnesses, skin disease, or people with metal body implants.
Here we tell you all the benefits and contraindications of a electrostimulation workout.
EMS workouts can be tailored to anyone, from a novice to a professional athlete.

“Whole body electrostimulation (WB-EMS) has recently become an innovative training modality, allowing simultaneous exogenous muscle activation of up to 18 regions with a total area of 2,800 cm2 covered by electrodes. It allows the configuration of different intensities in each region”.
F.J. Amaro-Gahete, 2018.
“The WB-EMS has evolved technologically during the second decade of 2000, both at the hardware and software level. In a few years we have gone from a basic technology, where the client had to be connected to a large electrostimulator performing isometric exercises, to achieve wireless systems that allow functional training.
The most interesting aspect of this evolution resides in the ability to completely configure the electrical wave and create an infinity of electrostimulation programs since. When it was created, this technology was very limited in terms of available programs as well as the control that the trainer had of the system”.
Abraham Carlé, 2020.
“A trend in the fitness world based on the use of WB-EMS as the primary or sole training method. This trend is strongly associated with a business model based on training boutiques or studios and the creation of franchises.
In this business model, the main or only service offered to customers is electrostimulation training. Typically, methodologies specific to the trend and the leading brands are used, which are not connected to the conventional training methodology based on scientific evidence.
This training methodology is known scientifically as WB-EMS Classic Methodology”.
Abraham Carlé, 2020.
“Research concept and application of full body electrostimulation based on the integration of this technology with scientifically proven training methodologies.
It is not intended to be a business model itself. Trainers and fitness entrepreneurs can adapt this technology to several business models.
This concept can be integrated into various business models in the fitness industry. Therefore, it can be understood as a supplement to the services offered in a business model; either as an independent service within the center’s cross-selling catalog or as a tool that is integrated into the services already offered by the center before acquiring the technology”.
Abraham Carlé, 2020
