I-Motion Thess EMS celebrates its first successful year as an official member of Imotion Club Greece in the Central and North part of Greece.
We own an 100m2 personal and small group studio based in Thessaloniki city where our athletes enjoy their training in a luxurious way.
Our experienced trainers specializing in use of i-motion ems software provide an evolutionary fitness program tailored to the needs of each of our athletes.
Additionally, the I-MotionThess collaborates with a graduate nutritionist who in combination with fat measurement gives to those who are interested diets that are perfectly in line with their needs and habits.
We also have a special cooperation with an exceptional physiotherapist for extra recovery needs.
The marketing department of I-MotionThess organized on July of 9th an outdoor event for celebrating the first year of our operation. Some of our existing athletes or other who were interested to join us had the opportunity to do group training and i-motion ems training in a beautiful foresty area near the city.
Outdoor training is a new kind of training that we just added to our gym routine. We are the first fitness center in Thessaloniki city who began outdoor trainings combining them with electrostimulation. The wireless i-motion ems contributed a lot in this project and differentiated us from the competition.
This first year of operation was a challenge accepted for I-MotionThess. We succeded by training people with imotion elctrostimulation and finally creating huge fans of it. Once they begin it they stay on it.
We strongly adapt our moto: One Team One Goal: Together we ‘ll make the difference!
Panos Moutousidis – Owner Imotion Thess EMS:
I am proud of being the owner of Imotion Thess and belonging in Imotion Club. There is a high level of satisfaction based in the fruitful and expanding cooperation with i-motion company. The fact that we use the evolutionary imotion training make our members feel really enthousiastic by the results that they see.
Vicky Moskofopoulou – Imotion Thess EMS athlete:
An excellent gym that meets the needs of even the most demanding client. Fully trained staff and organized neat space. It’s worth a try to understand that the right job is done from the very first time.
Electrostimulation is not only very popular with athletes; it is also very popular with physical therapists. We can study electro stimulation in a physiotherapy degree. This technique helps to the physiotherapist to improve and prevent a lot of injuries and pathologies.
Electrostimulation from treatment to prevention.
The main advantage of electrostimulation is its great versatility. There are two types of body tissues: muscle tissues and connective tissues (nerves). The electrotherapy sends electrical impulses through electrodes placed on the skin. For the muscle fibers, we will use an EMS electro stimulator for tone and enhance the muscles, and if we want to reduce pain, we must use the TENS electro stimulator technique.
The treatment of different injures or pathologies with electrostimulation allows relieving acute or chronic pain, retrain muscle functions, and prevent new cases in the future. We have scientific results of directs benefits of this technique, especially for treating back or in the rehabilitation processes of knee injuries.
Electrical stimulation, evolution, and training
To adapt treatment and patient care, the physical therapist can use the EMS or TENS technique, choose the frequency and power of the electrical impulses, and vary the electrodes’ placement. This technique taught in physiotherapy undergraduate courses has evolved significantly in recent years, thanks to technological advances and the improvement of programs and protocols.
As with sports trainers who use a training method that incorporates muscle electrostimulation, we recommend that health professionals receive regular preparation. Manufacturers of electro-stimulators can offer specific training adapted to their technology (“i-motion, the ideal partner to start a business”).
I-motion electro stimulator, the solution adapted to physical therapy practices.
The electrotherapy is a common practice and integrated into the various physiotherapy protocols.
Its operational implementation is evolving, progressing, and allowing better adaptation to the limitations of the methods. In particular, EMS wireless electrical stimulation simplifies use and improves patient autonomy. I-motion, the world leader in the sector, has developed electrostimulation devices that offer programs that adapt to each patient’s specific needs, simultaneously and painlessly mobilizing up to 300 muscles. Our teams have wireless technology with a range of up to 100 meters, creating an unlimited number of patients.
Experienced engineers, specialized in the design and manufacture of medical devices, develop our solution. Made in Spain, this technology has KTC certificates, the CE certificate approved by SGS, and the Invima quality management certificate that guarantees the quality of the products and their innovative character.

Many athletes get used to a routine, but there comes a time when they want to change and improve their performance in the gym. They ask their coaches for advice to find the most appropriate method for their interests and increase their motivation through a personal training. They are looking for something motivating that will allow them to get visible results as soon as possible.
For this reason, many personal trainers and physical trainers consider investing in electrostimulation equipment, a technique based on exercise through sequential impulses generated in a device and applied in the body through electrodes. This type of technique can be used in a personalized way in gyms to improve the performance of athletes.

Electrical muscle stimulation helps your well-being
On several occasions, we have shared with you the advantages and possibilities of electrostimulation in the health, sport and aesthetics sectors to achieve specific purposes (toning the abdomen, relieving the pain of a knee injury, improving the performance in swimming sports, etc.). However, EMS can also be used as a source of overall balance and well-being. It is what happens with regular sessions, which cause a positive effect on mood, stress-energy and quality of life.
Gyms in times of technology
Beyond the economic benefits of electrostimulation in gyms and specialized sports centers, we must look at the technological side. In times of digitization, companies have no choice but to accept that digital transformation is vital to subsist on the market, and EMS is one of the tools that contribute to its reinvention.
Technologies are the main allies of entrepreneurs, personal trainers and users. Sports facilities are gradually taking the step towards transforming their business models. And in fitness, muscle electrostimulation becomes an ideal complement to offer more up-to-date products or services.
However, there are other options to bring gyms closer to digitization. For example, mobile apps, virtual classes, big data, wearables, trackers, cardio connectivity, etc. They are the symptoms of digital transformation.
As a result, they attract a younger target and facilitate the booking of training sessions online, which increases users. We are facing the revolution of a new business model with a lot of future. Technology has made it possible for gyms and other companies to become more and more productive in less time.
Are you ready to help athletes improve their fitness? Do you need to develop a more efficient personalized EMS training? How do you help them regain their muscles?
Empieza 2020 y sigue creciendo la demanda de electroestimuladores año tras año. La principal razón se encuentra en las ventajas que ofrecen equipos como i-motion (reduce el riesgo de lesiones, aumenta el rendimiento de deportistas, permite los entrenamientos grupales y multigrupales, etc.). El crecimiento de la demanda lo hemos visto a través del número de negocios específicos que ofrecen esta tecnología y en los gimnasios que la están incorporando.
La electroestimulación muscular ya ha sido adoptada por grandes deportistas de élite y es el protagonista del entrenamiento para los Juegos Olímpicos de Tokio. La ciudad se prepara para recibir entre el 24 de julio y el 9 de agosto a los atletas que participarán en los 28 deportes de las Olimpiadas.
A lo largo de este post vamos a compartir contigo cuál es la presencia de la electroestimulación en los Juegos Olímpicos en la preparación de los deportistas para este evento deportivo, el más importante del mundo. ¿Nos acompañas?
EMS como método de entrenamiento y recuperación en los atletas olímpicos
2020 es un año prometedor. El mayor espectáculo deportivo del mundo volverá a Tokio este verano, reuniendo a millones de personas de todo el mundo. La antorcha vuelve a encenderse para recibir a los mejores atletas, y no podíamos obviar esta oportunidad para hablar de la electroestimulación como método de entrenamiento y recuperación.
Los Juegos Olímpicos solo tienen sitio para los mejores. Prepararse para llegar a la competición es un proceso largo y complejo que requiere un alto rendimiento. Incluso, en los días de competición, hay que estar preparado para recuperarse lo antes posible del esfuerzo que requieren deportes como la natación, el tenis o la gimnasia rítmica. Los equipos de electroestimulación en los Juegos Olímpicos se han convertido en una alternativa eficaz para estos deportistas por varias razones:
i-motion es el equipo que reúne todas estas características. ¡Y muchas más! Si quieres conocer más datos acerca del electroestimulador profesional de imotion-ems.com, que es el más avanzado en tecnología, contacta con nosotros.
El caso de Usain Bolt
Vamos a rememorar por un momento al ex atleta Usain Bolt. Este famoso jamaicano sufrió una rotura de grado 1 en el bíceps femoral de su pierna derecha en una de sus últimas competiciones en los 100 metros del campeonato de Jamaica. Estaba a pocos días de la celebración de los Juegos Olímpicos, así que podía perder su intervención, pero sus allegados estaban seguros de que el mejor velocista de la historia llegaría a Río de Janeiro en las mejores condiciones. ¡Y así fue!
Durante unos días, el deportista fue una duda constante y publicó en sus redes sociales el siguiente mensaje: “Después de sentir molestias en el tendón del bíceps femoral en la primera ronda y de nuevo en semifinales, fui examinado por el médico jefe del campeonato nacional y me diagnosticaron un desgarro de grado 1″.
Su recuperación y reducción de riesgos llegó con ayuda de trabajos de core y electroestimulación, combinados con su plan de entrenamiento habitual. Su recuperación fue poco después constatada para hacer frente a las 8 carreras que tenía en pocos días. Nadie se equivocó, ya que el atleta logró ganar de nuevo la medalla de oro en los 100 metros planos olímpicos en 9,81 segundos.
Breve resumen de la EMS en los deportistas olímpicos
Usain Bolt no es más que un solo ejemplo de todos los deportistas que se benefician de la electroestimulación muscular, bien para entrenar o bien para recuperarse de una lesión. En cualquier caso, ¡funciona! En i-motion trabajamos a diario para mejorar las características de nuestro equipo, y aunque ya somos el único equipo EMS inalámbrico, todavía nos quedan muchos retos por afrontar.
El entrenamiento y la prevención de lesiones son dos bases fundamentales en los deportistas, y la electroestimulación muscular ya ha sido catalogada como una técnica preventiva. Los deportistas experimentados saben que este método les permite reducir el riesgo de lesiones antes y después de sus esfuerzos intensos.
Ahora que se acercan las próximas Olimpiadas y el mayor evento deportivo vuelve a Tokio, es el momento de prestar atención a las técnicas de entrenamiento que se están utilizando con los deportistas. Recuerda que la mejor forma de llevarlo a cabo es combinando el ejercicio físico con el electrofitness, ya que su aplicación por sí sola no generará resultados.
No nos encontramos ante una técnica milagrosa, sino ante un método de entrenamiento completo que permite sacar el máximo provecho a nuestras capacidades y ayuda a mejorar el rendimiento general y específico. Utilizándola de manera adecuada, la electroestimulación en los Juegos Olímpicos puede impulsar a los deportistas al oro.

2020 begins and the demand for electrostimulators continues to grow. The main reason lies in the advantages offered by the different equipment on the market such as i-motion (reduces the risk of injury, increases the performance of athletes, allows group and multigroup training, etc.). The growth in demand has been seen through the number of specific businesses that offer this technology and in the gyms that are incorporating it.
Electrical Muscle Stimulation has already been adopted by elite athletes and it is the protagonist of the athlete’s trainings for the Tokyo Olympics. The city prepares to receive between July 24 and August 9 athletes who will participate in the 28 sports of the Olympics.
Throughout this post we will share with you the presence of electrical muscle stimulation in the preparation of athletes for the most important sporting event in the world. Are you ready to join us?
EMS as a method of training and recovery in Olympic athletes
2020 is a promising year. The world’s biggest sporting event will return to Tokyo this summer, bringing together millions of people from around the world. The torch is re-ignited to welcome the best athletes, and we couldn’t ignore this opportunity to talk about electrostimulation as a method of training and recovery.
The Olympics Games only have room for the best. Preparing to reach the competition is a long and complex process that requires high performance. Even on competition days, you have to be prepared to recover as soon as possible from the effort required by sports such as swimming, tennis or rhythmic gymnastics. Electrostimulation equipment has become an effective alternative for these athletes for several reasons:
- They allow active recovery after a great effort; therefore, the recovery time of the athlete is reduced.
- Improves results through 20-minute sessions, which equates to 3 hours of conventional training.
- As the muscles recover, a sequential impulse makes metabolism work.
- It reduces the fatigue of athletes.
- Trainers can make athletes work up to 350 muscles simultaneously and find it much easier to do group and multigroup workouts (without losing attention to each user). i-motion, for example, has no limit of participants.
i-motion is the equipment that brings together all these features. And many more! If you want to know more about the EMS device from imotion-ems.com, which is most advanced electrostimulator in technology, contact us.
The case of Usain Bolt
Let’s remember former athlete Usain Bolt for a moment. This famous Jamaican suffered a grade 1 strain in the hamstring of his right leg in one of his last competitions in the 100 meters of the Jamaican championship. He was a few days away from the Olympics, so he could lose his spot, but his close friends were confident that the best sprinter in history would go to Rio de Janeiro in the best conditions. And so, it was!
For a few days, the athlete was a constant doubt and posted on his social media the following message that he later deleted: “Sadly, I have tear of the proximal myotendinous junction of biceps femoris in my left hamstring with partial retraction. Three months rehab.”
His recovery and risk reduction came with the help of core workouts and electrostimulation, combined with his usual training plan. His recovery was soon established to face the 8 races he had in a few days. No one was wrong, as the athlete managed to win the gold medal again in the Olympic 100 in 9.81 seconds.
A brief summary of EMS in Olympic athletes
Usain Bolt is just one example of all athletes who benefit from electrical muscle stimulation, either to train or to recover from an injury. In any case, it works! At i-motion we work every day to improve the characteristics of our equipment, and although we are already the only wireless EMS equipment, we still have many challenges to face.
Training and injury prevention are two fundamental bases in athletes, and muscle electrostimulation has already been listed as a preventive technique. Experienced athletes know that this method allows them to reduce the risk of injury before and after their intense efforts.
Now that the next Olympics is approaching and the biggest sporting event is back in Tokyo, it’s time to pay attention to the training techniques used with athletes. Remember that the best way to do this is to combine physical exercise with electrofitness, since its application alone will not generate results.
It is not a miraculous technique, but a complete training method that allows us to make the most of our capabilities and helps to improve overall and specific performance.

Some say that this activity will be ‘the training of the future’, but the reality is that it is already the present of thousands of athletes. Electrofitness is an innovative training method that is performed with electrostimulation equipment connected to the body through a tight suit or vest. Who could have imagined that a suit could help us get in shape? All muscles can work at once, increasing the work during the session.
Throughout 2019, we witnessed its application in the field of sport, health and aesthetics; we discovered the i-motion EMS electrostimulator (the most advanced technology equipment); and we found that this technique was becoming a trend in countries around the world. Proof of this has been the presence of our equipment in the heart of Mexico in March, Dubai in April, Chile in May, Italy in June, etc.
Now, it’s time to look ahead and be prepared for what awaits us in 2020.
What will electrofitness bring us in 2020?
A few weeks ago, we shared with you the trendy sports of the moments, and it seems that electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) will continue to be one that reigns in the sector. Eco-friendly or sporty clothing, specifically dedicated to yoga, leggings, colors and brands always set the trend, it is not a novelty.
Electrofitness activity will continue to grow in gyms and sports centers, gain new fans and introduce improvements to its equipment. i-motion has already done so through:
- The quality of the equipment
Electrofitness is a very popular training method that is becoming increasingly fashionable in gyms. There are many equipment complements that are currently competing, but the only electrostimulation device on the market capable of providing pleasant sensations even during intense work is the professional muscle stimulator from imotion-ems.com. It achieves this thanks to sequential currents to control the flow.
- The comfort of its suit (Bio-Jacket)
The constant desire to innovate has led them to develop the Bio-Jacket, a suit that covers the whole body and guarantees comfort and freedom of movement. Its waves can easily access more than half of the 650 muscles of the body. In addition, their electrodes have been manufactured exclusively for EMS, they are made from rubber and carbon and they can be placed anywhere on the body.
- Wireless equipment
Its wireless technology allows group and multigroup classes anywhere, as well as adapting the session to each of the group members. There is no limit of participants and each of them can stop to rest whenever they want, regardless of the rest of the participants. It’s every coach and fitness coaches’ dream. Its system has 100 meters of range, making it safe and preventing any disconnection.
- Variety of programs
It includes 20 different training programs that have already been preset and adapted to the different needs of users. However, it has 6 other configurable programs that can be customized. Thanks to the i-motion Smart EMS Software, only an initial adjustment will be made for the equipment to automatically adjust the intensity parameters in the different programs of each training protocol.
Other alternatives to Electrical Muscle Stimulation
Electrostimulation can be an effective alternative to period pain. Its transcutaneous technique serves to soothe different types of pain thanks to the gentle impulses of the currents, and the control of intensity. Even a few years ago, this technique began to be seen as the ideal solution to soothe pain and anxiety.
In any case, electrostimulation continues to advance and incorporate improvements that make people’s lives easier. There are contraindications in its use, as it is not recommended to use it with pregnant women, children, patients with pacemakers or other disease. Therefore, it is always advisable to use the EMS with a professional.
Conclusions: electrofitness in 2020
Without a doubt, i-motion is already one of the most advanced electrical muscle stimulation equipment of 2020, and it will be a trend not only for the world of sport, but also for entrepreneurs who want to monetize their investment in a short time. It will be a perfect opportunity to optimize their time and multiply the revenue in the sports center. The EMS does not need a large space to train, 3 square meters are enough to perform any exercise.
Muscle electrostimulation will be strengthened as an innovative technique and current training method. The advent of its technology represents a turning point in the gym and sport market. So, to the question we asked you in the title of this post, we can only answer one thing: a lot of technology.
If you need training or any other help, i-motion specialist instructors will take care of providing you with what you need. Get the most out of your equipment and businesses!
Are you doing a muscle electrostimulation workout? How are you eating? Do you take the right nutrients? How much water are you drinking?
Thinking about our nutrition in EMS workout even before starting has sense. This workout involves a very high intensity that requires the intake of foods with the right amount of five nutrients of optimal quality: water, fats, vitamins and minerals, protein and carbohydrates. What’s the advantage? Your body will consume more calories and increase the calories you burn. In turn, basal metabolism increases due to the development of musculature, which causes the elimination of fat reserves and a better physical appearance.
Throughout this post we will give you some tips to have a healthy diet in your workouts with the professional muscle stimulator from imotion-ems.com.
4 things to know about nutrition in EMS training
To start, let’s talk about one of the most important components of the body: water. How much water do you drink? It is recommended for athletes or personal trainers who train with electrostimulation equipment to get used to drinking enough water, with little or no gas, and a high amount of nutrients. It is advisable to do it before, during and mainly after training, since the sessions make us sweat intensely.
From a nutritional point of view, it is important that the water has a good proportion of magnesium and calcium, and we can even add some slices of ginger and squeezed lemon juice. It will increase the regeneration effect due to its antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory capabilities. Another option is to add fruit to the water (kiwi, apple, banana…).
For many people, fats are the great enemy. However, not all of them are bad for the body. As with carbohydrates, you should distinguish between convenient and inconvenient. We can find four types: trans fatty acids (vegetable oils), saturated fatty acids (cheese, meat, sausages…), monounsaturated fatty acids (olive oil), polyunsaturated fatty acids (rape seed oil, flaxseed, fatty acids, etc.).
Neither all carbohydrates serve us nor can we take them at any time. It is recommended to do it about two hours before or during metabolic training with muscle electrostimulation to reduce fat. Thanks to carbohydrates, users can increase insulin secretion, which allows to reduce glucagon, “it is a hormone that is produced in the pancreas. Its main function is to increase blood glucose levels, using the glucose levels that exist in the liver”, as the Diabetes Association of Madrid points out.
What kind of carbohydrates can you drink? Although they tend to have a bad reputation, we find those that contribute to performance and those that delay it. Among the first we find: vegetables (onion, garlic, broccoli, potato, carrot, pepper…), salads (lettuce, tomato, radish, cucumber…), fruits (raspberries, banana, pear, peach…), mushrooms. With other carbohydrates we must reduce consumption, such as pastries, sweets or products with cereals, among others.
4. Minerals and vitamins
As mentioned in previous paragraphs, electrostimulation training involves a high intensity, so minerals and vitamins are a fundamental pillar in the intake of athletes. Ideally, a balanced diet with a lot of consumption of fruit, vegetables, selected fish, egg, water, etc.
We cannot forget the importance of Vitamin C, which is fundamental to the immune system; Magnesium, essential for daily consumption; Zinc, essential also for the proper functioning of metabolism; and Iron, responsible for transporting oxygen through the body.
Now that you have an idea of some nutrition tips for EMS workouts, it’s time to get started. And if you have any doubts, don’t forget to tell us.
Other things to consider when training with EMS
It’s clear that nutrition is one of the most important factors in a workout, but it’s not the only one. Personal trainers, as the highest responsible for the application of EMS to their users, should also consider the specific psychosomatic factor of EMS.
In the treatment and assistance of these, the psychological component is often underestimated, and therefore, from i-motion we want to emphasize its importance. Beyond sport, for many years, physiotherapy patients were treated with passive therapies filled with static exercises. However, over the years, the treatment has been adopting measures where activity predominates. And this is a great advantage that muscle electrostimulation provides, since its psychics can be seen at the origin of psychic pains.
In short, sports training offers much better expectations for the healing and recovery of the body.
In addition, training and treatment through current electrostimulation equipment also influence the satisfaction of relationship and proximity needs (greater trust between coach and client), greater satisfaction and joy (predominantly in this type of training), increases control (explains in detail, and without using too many technical concepts, the operation of the equipment and transmits the purpose of the training. You will see that the athlete will appreciate that control). And if you have a recognized coach license, such as the i-motion EMS technical certificate, much better.
Are you ready to become a reference coach? What are you doing to ensure quality training? How is the service you offer your users? Do you want to know more about i-motion technology? Contact us and do not hesitate to tell us all your concerns. We can help you!
Although it may seem like a utopia, it is the reality of all those coaches who have already using the i-motion EMS technology. Can you imagine training the specific muscles, with the right intensity and in the ideal time? With this equipment it is possible, and we will tell you why.
Working more than 300 muscles may seem crazy, but it is just one of the great possibilities of the electrical muscle stimulation of i-motion EMS. This equipment has 18 electrodes, which can be moved, placed in different parts of the body, depending on the muscles that the user wants to mobilize. If you are a high-competition boxer, you will be to apply higher intensities in biceps and triceps.
This design provides greater freedom to place the electrodes in specific places that you want to work and improve. The i-motion Bio-Jacket allows you to do an intense job, but more comfortable and enjoyable than ever before. In addition, it guarantees total freedom of movement. Electrodes can be placed anywhere to access more than half of our 650 muscles. The i-motion suit has been positioned as the best EMS sports equipment on the market: it is comfortable and flexible.
Enjoy your workouts and prevent your users from feeling static.
Increase training control with muscle electrostimulation
Thanks to the advanced technology of the professional electric muscle stimulator form imotion-ems.com, you can control the order in which muscle contractions occur. It is a new way of exercising them through the sequential EMS impulses that improves lymphatic circulation. Thanks to the precision of the training, athletes get better results and much faster than through conventional training.
The possibilities of electrostimulation in boxing
As we mentioned, muscle electrostimulation can be a beneficial tool for a boxing workout. This sport can be taken to another level thanks to the EMS, so we already talk about ElectroBoxing. So much so, that boxing has already become one of the most practiced sports and, in addition, it allows to work and strengthen different areas of the body, such as the arms, legs or back.
Thanks to muscle electrostimulation, this sport can an essential practice to increase endurance and physical strength. EMS and boxing are 100% compatible. The benefits of boxing and electrostimulation workout are made to meet your goals in a much more enjoyable and comfortable way. Its advantages are:
- It is easier to lose weight.
- It increases bone and muscle mass.
- It releases accumulated stresses.
- It can improve cardiovascular health.
- You can tone and define the body.
- It improves reflexes and balance.
All this is possible thanks to the characteristics of the Bio-Jacket, an antibacterial vest, odorless and totally comfortable with which the electrodes are relocated so that the muscles are better stimulated. With EMS, all these benefits multiply.
Did you know that a 20-minute electrostimulation session equals three hours of conventional training?
Coaches: Help to improve your performance
Both personal trainers and physical trainers have in their hands the possibility to invest in muscle electrostimulation equipment and help their athletes improve performance, boost the results of a typical sports training, prevent injury and damage of bones and joints, increase muscle tissue, help recover muscles and cure an injury faster, among other things. For this reason, we talk about the coach as the union between athletes and the EMS, as well as the consequent sporting performance.
Investing in electrostimulation means offering your users innovative technology and a modern training method, such as electrofitness. Optimizing the benefits of electrostimulation through active gymnastics exercises is in your hands. We are in front of an intense work, but with a great saving of time and energy.
Muscle electrostimulation allows athletes to recruit more muscle fibers and gain much more powerful contractions, so that elite athletes can increase their muscle strength and volume.
i-motion, the athletes’ electrostimulator
I-motion technology has already become the favorite electrostimulator of many athletes. In a conventional workout, to voluntarily contract one of your muscles, your brain sends a signal to activate the motor nerve. However, when you train with electrostimulation, the equipment sends a signal to the motor nerve of each muscle, causing a muscle contraction. This process is very similar to a natural workout, because the muscles do not differentiate these signals.
During the recovery process, i-motion EMS improves blood circulation of muscles and reduces muscle tension. Great athletes such as Mario Mola and Rui Goncalves have already put this technique into practice.
Gyms and sports centers are evolving over the years. They get new work tools, adopt technologies, etc. Electrostimulation, for example, has become one of the big bets, not only from gyms, but also for personal trainers, physical trainers and investors.
However, although it is an ancient technique, it is still novel for many. For this reason, i-motion has put together in a single list all the things you should consider before buying a muscle electrostimulation equipment (EMS). Pay attention!
What should your electrostimulator have? 6 things to keep in mind
Now that Electric Muscle Stimulation has become a popular tool, there are many investors, athletes, trainers and coaches who are interested in this equipment. But before you go shopping, you should be very clear the things your equipment should have:
The more programs you have, the better, because that means the equipment can work more capabilities: strength, endurance… The i-motion equipment includes 20 preset training programs tailored to the different needs of users and 6 configurable programs that allow you to create customized programs. Once you change programs, all parameters are preset, so the contraction and relaxation times correspond to optimal values.
2. Active recovery
The active recovery is one of the great advantages of i-motion. In each EMS workout there are different phases, and one of them is the resting one, where the muscle recovers in a few minutes. In this recovery time you are not going to overload the muscles and it can guarantee the success of the training session. In short, it has an active recovery system, provides specific impulses that do not overload the muscles and allows the metabolism to work more.
One of the great added values of i-motion is its wireless technology, as it allows you to train in group classes, anywhere and adapt the session to each user in the group. This is the dream of many gyms, and in addition, it allows you to do intense workouts, but safer and more comfortable than ever. The ergonomic and functional design of all equipment components allow the simultaneous work of muscle groups. i-motion consists of a central unit (tablet or screen) and the treatment vest where the electrodes are placed (Bio-Jacket). So far, it is the only electrostimulation equipment that allows multi-group workouts.
As in all physical activity, EMS should not be a technique applied in any way. On the contrary, several conditions must be considered when using it: medical examination, proper clothing, etc. At i-motion we pay attention to your safety, and therefore we have a technical team available to all our customers in order to avoid, prevent or solve any problems with the equipment. Our support is remote, so it’s done quickly, wherever you are.
Now what? This is the question that many trainers ask themselves when they purchase an EMS machine. At i-motion, we know that to optimize the implementation and use of our technology, knowledge is needed. That’s why we offer training on how to use the equipment (uses, parameters, programs). In short, we train people in the use of their equipment: we give advice on the exercises according to each need and offer audiovisual training.
Think very carefully about why you want electrostimulation to be part of your training tools. Do you want to help athletes increase their performance, improve fitness, reduce the risk of injury, etc.? Are you the physical trainer for a team of athletes and need to reduce their effort without lowering performance? Muscle electrostimulation may be the answer you’re looking for.
Can you think of any other features? If you need to know more about i-motion muscle electrostimulation, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Interest in electrostimulation grows
In recent years, Spain has experienced significant growth in the number of people going to the gym. According to data published by Palco 23, “Spanish fitness turnover has increased by 7.5% since 2015 thanks to the increase in the volume of customers. The sector closed 2018 with 5.3 million subscribers, 4,650 clubs and 11.4% penetration into society.”
This data matches that of a Gen X and Z increasingly interested in technology and body care. EMS brings these two goals together in a single equipment, so it has already established itself as one of the best to get in shape much faster and with less effort today. Some believe it’s one of those ‘miracle alternatives’, but it’s not true. Electrostimulation requires combining physical exercise with technique, always with the help of a professional.
The increased interest in EMS is due to several factors, as there is no single reason to implement electrostimulation. For example: many people who spend too much time at work and barely have time to go to the gym, reduce the time spent exercising thanks to EMS. An injured athlete who needs to recover quickly to participate in the next competition can reduce pain and recover much faster.
Many women even use electrostimulation to regain their fitness after giving birth. Many citizens look for the nearest electrostimulation center to train, recover much faster and avoid hours in the gym.
There are many moments in life where one can consider using a professional muscle stimulator from imotion-ems.com. If you have yours, but you don’t know very well if it can be effective, tell us. We’ll listen to you.
his is the reality that has been being in sports centers for some years now, and we are not just talking about treadmills, stationary bikes or rowing machines, but tools that have been the result of technological advances. The great example is muscle electrostimulation, a technique implemented through innovative equipment, such as i-motion EMS.
In this post we will not only tell you what it consists of, but we will also emphasize the importance and the reasons why gyms should be renovated with this type of tools. Let’s start!
Muscle electrostimulation training, a fashionable technique
Why this training and not another? Why is EMS more effective than conventional training? Would it be comparable to spend 20 minutes doing a traditional workout?
The answer to all these questions can be found in this technique. An electrostimulation workout does not equal the one we do in our usual gym, as we have to do more efforts in a traditional workout and we see slower results. In addition, EMS allows you to work several muscle groups at once, without the need to work the legs first, then work the chest, then abdomen and biceps, etc., as happens in conventional training. Therefore, you work with exercises perfectly designed by the trainers and save a lot of time.
The recruitment of fibers is also different in one session and another, since in a conventional training occurs from outside into the muscle, while a workout with electrostimulation adds to that recruitment the fibers that can result from within, because of the sequential impulses of the i-motion EMS device. In short, you work more muscles in less time.
The great benefits of EMS on the athletes’ body and performance have led many personal trainers and physical trainers to adopt this technique and acquire the knowledge they need to put it into practice. i-motion facilitates this process thanks to its training, with which you can acquire the technical EMS certificate and become a differentiated professional with new skills, competencies and working methodologies.
What advantages does i-motion EMS offer for investors?
Investors are often looking for new profitable business opportunities. Electrostimulation is therefore a technique in the spotlight of these professionals: it allows them to create new start-ups, specialized sports centers, etc., with great short and long-term benefits.
Are you an ambitious person willing to take risks to get great returns? Do you want to innovate in the world of fitness? Muscle electrostimulation may be the opportunity you’re looking for to:
- Innovate in a trendy technique, make profits and attract new customers easily.
- Apply EMS in diverse sectors and needs (sport, health and aesthetics).
- Offer an opportunity not only to coaches and trainers, but also to the athletes themselves.
- Have quality Electrofitness equipment (remote assistance, maximum security, smart and wireless software, professional technical service, advanced technology, comfort of use, maximum availability, etc.).
The body care market is in a process of development and growth, and therefore fitness is a clear investment opportunity. Being fit in a short time is the dream of many, but we could never imagine that we could apply a lot of physical intensity with very little effort. i-motion EMS stimuli cause muscle contractions to achieve an effect equal to or better than that obtained through conventional exercise.
This type of passive exercise has revolutionized the world of fitness, as athletes are increasing their muscle tone, volume, endurance and strength, among others, in a notorious way. Of course, we are not talking about a miraculous system, as many believe, but about the evolution of sports training with technology. So much so, that great elite athletes have already integrated it as part of their usual training sessions.
The challenge of digital transformation in gyms
Digital transformation has come to the gyms to stay. Although technology seemed a field away from this sector, sports discipline takes on the challenge through the integration of new tools. In this post we have seen how the muscle electrostimulation of i-motion is an opportunity that many investors are already taking advantage of, especially in an era when it is essential to approach our target.
The younger millennials and centennials have been born with technology. They need it to feel like they stay on air, so companies that need to attract them should know that EMS increases the chances of younger users also going to their gyms. Millennials have grown with the emergence of the internet and the growth of online shopping. Centennials came when the internet was already implanted in society and they are experiencing the boom of consumer to consumer commerce. So, what can we expect from them?
Don’t miss this opportunity. Success is on the other side of fear. Do you have any doubts? Call us, i-motion can help you.
