‘If you have been forced to quit regular exercise due to an injury, bad back or uncooperative knees, EMS training could provide a curative way to get you restarted. I had a serious motorbike accident and doctors wanted to do corrective surgery on my left shoulder due to a muscle tear and injury. The injury was so severe that I could not lift my arm straight up above my head.
I love to exercise and keeping fit is an important part of my life. I gym every day and every second day I do cardio. I heard about BODYTEC and I thought: “It’s the same quick fix nonsense as seen on infomercials. A patch, a belt and a little box with knobs and lights and lots of wires that you strap around your waist, and then a magic genie will pop out and grant you a six-pack, while you sit and watch your favourite soapie!”
But then a friend told me about BODYTEC in Ruimsig and I booked a trial session. The personal trainers welcomed me in a very professional way, gave me a proper introduction to the BODYTEC technology and explained what I could expect. I was very impressed with the modern studio and high-tech devices, but deep down still a bit sceptical.
Juan, my trainer, connected me to the device and I did some lunges, arm curls and a few other exercises. Boy oh, boy did I quickly change my perception about BODYTEC training. After 10 minutes I was already sweating as I’d just finished a two-hour spinning session, yet still managed to finish my 20- minute session. I felt really post-exercise muscle soreness for the following two days. Nevertheless, I booked another session and once again, experienced the same professionalism and same results, but a lot less soreness, which meant the following week I could continue with my normal gym programme. I will go back to BODYTEC every week until I have reached my goals.
Twenty minutes a week may sound crazy, but do yourself a favour and go and try it. You have absolutely nothing to lose except maybe a few centimetres!’
