Meet Faaiz…

BODYTEC Bassonia studio owner, Faaiz Tar, on his passion for superbikes


“I was bitten by the bug for superbikes when I was a teenager and I sat pillion on someone’s superbike. I was hooked!” recalls Faaiz. He began road riding (the tight and twisty roads of Mpumalanga were the ideal playground), but eventually his journey took him to the track. “This is where bikes and riders can be truly tested,” he says. His favourite tracks are Kyalami in Midrand and Phakisa in Welkom and he loves the freedom of superbike riding. “Once your helmet is on, worldly matters leave your mind. Your only focus at that time is what you are doing and nothing else.”

Whilst his hobby is challenging and fun, Faaiz says he was working in a corporate environment and he was struggling to find a balance between his active lifestyle and the demands of his work. He tried BODYTEC and this proved to be a turning point for Faaiz. “I was impressed that you can do a whole body workout in just 20 minutes a week, but also just how effective EMS training is. I decided I wanted to help others who struggle to find time to exercise so that they can live an active and healthy lifestyle,” says Faaiz.

From client to studio owner, Faaiz says he has also been excited by how EMS training has improved his superbike riding and endurance. “One relies heavily on your core with riding as well as overall strength in general. One BODYTEC session a week does the trick!”

How BODYTEC EMS does more for you in 20 minutes

Stronger and more intense muscle contractions

BODYTEC uses Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to achieve stronger, more intense muscle contractions than a voluntary exertion can achieve alone.

Focuses on specific muscle groups

Your personal trainer can control each muscle group by adjusting the training intensity of the various muscle groups on the EMS device according to your individual goals.

It activates up to 90% of the muscles

During EMS training, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with each contraction.
