Trail Runs & Marathons 2020

BODYTEC offers both amateur and professional athletes the opportunity to build strength for endurance events like half marathons and trail runs with just 20 minutes of training a week.

The challenge for many runners is that although they understand and acknowledge the need for strength training, many prefer the running track, open road or mountain trail as opposed to the confined walls of a gym. EMS training with BODYTEC is a great alternative for runner’s who do not enjoy the time-demands of conventional strength training. EMS training with BODYTEC only requires 20 minutes per week, furthermore, no additional weights are used which reduces the impact on the joints and associated injury risk.

The BODYTEC EMS device is able to stimulate multiple muscle groups simultaneously, allowing for a repeated activation of the whole body. Under the guidance of a personal trainer, specific muscle groups can be individually targeted according to your goals and needs. 

We’ve handpicked some exciting races, trail runs, and marathons coming up soon (for all fitness levels) to put on your to-do list.
