At Bodystreet we are asked regularly about how our workout compares with that in a traditional gym. Using Electro Muscle Stimulation, as we do at Bodystreet means a direct comparison isn’t possible. However, what is easy to differentiate are the benefits achieved through working out at Bodystreet.
The first major difference is time efficiency: EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulation) workouts at Bodystreet are incredibly time-efficient. With just one 20-minute session per week, you can achieve the same results as several hours spent in a traditional gym. This makes it ideal for busy individuals with limited time for exercise.
A Bodystreet workout focuses on full-body stimulation: EMS workouts target multiple muscle groups simultaneously, providing a comprehensive full-body workout. Traditional gym workouts often require separate exercises or equipment to target different muscle groups: EMS training engages them all at once.
Increased Muscle Activation
Your muscles experience an increase in activation: EMS technology stimulates your muscles externally, intensifying their contractions compared to traditional exercises. This leads to enhanced muscle activation, resulting in quicker strength gains and improved muscle tone.
Low-Impact and Joint-Friendly
A Bodystreet workout has no additional load so is joint-friendly and low-impact: Our workouts are gentle on your joints, making them suitable for individuals with joint issues or those who prefer low-impact exercises. Traditional gym workouts, especially high-impact exercises like running or jumping, can put stress on your joints and increase the risk of injury.
All training is personalised at Bodystreet: Workouts are conducted in one-to-two or one-on-one with a trainer. This personalised approach allows for individual attention, customised programmes, and proper form correction, ensuring that you get the very most out of each workout.
More Efficient Calorie Burning
There’s a more efficient calorie burning: Due to the high-intensity nature of Bodystreet workouts, they can help you burn calories more effectively than traditional gym exercises. The increased muscle activation and engagement of multiple muscle groups during EMS training result in a higher metabolic rate, leading to greater calorie expenditure.
Greater Core Strengthening
You gain greater core strengthening: Bodystreet workouts are excellent for strengthening your core muscles, including the abdominals, lower back, and pelvic floor. The electrical impulses engage deep muscles that are often difficult to target with traditional exercises alone, leading to improved core stability and posture.
Rehabilitation and Injury Prevention
Helps with rehabilitation and injury prevention: EMS training can be used for rehabilitation purposes, helping you recover from injuries and improve muscle imbalances. Additionally, the low-impact nature of EMS workouts can help prevent injuries by reducing strain on joints and providing controlled muscle activation.
Convenient and Flexible
It’s much more convenient and flexible: Bodystreet offers convenient training options, allowing you to schedule sessions according to your availability. Whether you have a hectic work schedule or other commitments, our workouts provide flexibility by accommodating your needs and saving you travel time to the gym.
Friendly and Motivational
There’s a friendly motivational atmosphere: Bodystreet studios have a supportive and motivating environment. Working out in a small group with a trainer can boost your motivation and accountability. The positive atmosphere and encouragement from fellow participants can make your fitness journey more enjoyable and help you stay committed to your goals.
Here we’ve tried to highlight just a few advantages of using Bodystreet’s EMS workouts as a route to achieving your fitness goals: and there are also many more. However, we always suggest that the best way to see how we compare is to try Bodystreet for yourself: which is why every Bodystreet studio offers a trial.
