How Athletes are using BODYTEC EMS to boost performance

Benefits of EMS training for athletes

As an athlete, your level of strength and performance is essential.

Strength does not necessarily mean muscle mass but rather your ability to utilise extra muscle fibre to generate powerful movements.

EMS intervention has played a significant role in the development of strength for all BODYTEC members, especially professional athletes who use in-studio training to enhance on-field performance. Read more about their stories below:


Boris is the founder of BODYTEC South Africa and owns BODYTEC City Bowl. He is a recreational rider who isn’t particularly focused on intensive training but more involved with staying healthy and enjoying his sport. He realized how important strength training is after a certain age. BODYTEC EMS allows your body to improve, or in his case, maintain good core muscles and posture.


Anthony is the owner of BODYTEC Atholl who enjoys the social side of golfing and chasing that elusive “hole in one.” Golf is a low-impact sport, which is why joints are not subjected to the stresses and strains of more energetic sports like tennis and running. That is why Anthony focuses more on maintaining his flexibility and core strength. Flexibility in Golf enables a full range of motion, and maximum strength through EMS training.


Kwetli completed his 3rd Comrades Marathon in 2018. He believes that running is both his fuel and outlet. Since starting BODYTEC EMS, he has become more toned and has noticed an increase in strength. BODYTEC goes hand-in-hand with his training at the Manoni Running Club – “they’re two sides of the same coin”, he said.
