How the BODYTEC brand was born

Having worked for most of his life in the European soccer industry, Boris Leyck came to South Africa in 2007 to work in the lead-up to the Soccer World Cup 2010. Boris first experienced Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training in Germany in early 2010, which inspired him to pursue his passion for health and fitness and change his career path. Instead of moving to Brazil to prepare for the next Soccer World Cup, Boris made Cape Town his home and launched the first EMS studio in the country in 2011.

Many of the BODYTEC franchise partners are former clients who have been so impressed with the business concept and personal results that they’ve experienced due to the EMS training, that they’ve been inspired to open their own studio. Others heard of the benefits that EMS can offer potential customers and decided to partner with BODYTEC because we are the only South African EMS provider that is accredited by the Franchise Association of South Africa (FASA).
