Meet Michael…

How this Head of  BODYTEC Training Academy combined his love of sport and learning…

Michael Burbidge has completed his master’s degree in sports science at the University of Pretoria (Tuks) and previously completed his Undergrad and honours in sports science at UFS.

“I essentially came to Pretoria for work,” he says. “I have been with BODYTEC since 2015.” Michael’s hometown, East London, is not a big town and after his original studies in Bloemfontein, he now works and is furthering his studies in Gauteng.

Michael’s passion for both sport and learning opened the door for him to start his Master’s. “I started with the Master’s degree mainly because the opportunity presented itself to me and I wasn’t sure if it would ever present itself again, so I decided to grab it with both hands,” he explains. “I love discovering new information and learning, mostly I enjoy discussing ideas with my supervisors.”

Working and studying simultaneously was a challenge, but Michael has found that a good support system is integral. “Family was always there to lend an ear and some great friends, several of whom had also completed their Master’s degrees.” Michael became the Head of  BODYTEC Training after moving to Cape Town in 2021.

When asked what his favourite element of BODYTEC is, Michael replied; “What I enjoy most at BODYTEC is working with trainers and studio owners whom I assist with training.

Michael is the Head of Training Academy at BODYTEC head office.

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.
