EMS stands for “Electro Muscular Stimulation”. It is a full body training system that utilizes the latest technology to deliver electrical impulse currents to train your muscle groups. EMS is safe as the electric impulses are very much alike to the bioelectric that activates the muscles generally – only stronger – and can be adjusted accordingly to the individual’s desire.
In conventional training the central nervous system internally stimulates the muscles with electrical impulses for it to contract the muscles. In EMS training electrical impulses stimulates the muscles externally. There is no difference to the muscle whether the electric stimuli resulted from the central nervous system or from the electrodes: the muscle reacts with a contraction.
In EMS training, all muscle groups can be activated together by means of an electrode system. Agonist and antagonist are stimulated at the same time in which specific exercise positions enhance the contraction of the voluntary fixed muscles. Muscle contractions stimulated by EMS can be more intense compared to those stimulated in traditional strength training and it easily reaches deep muscle tissue.
EMS is suitable for all age groups and fitness levels. The training session is joint friendly, impact free and lasts for only 15 minutes each time.
Most people can use EMS training but if you have the below particular health conditions, check with your doctor before you commence training:
- Diabetes mellitus
- Advanced arteriosclerosis
- Fever, acute bacterial or viral infections
- Neurological disorders (epilepsy, multiple sclerosis)
Also, individuals who are pregnant or have a pacemaker are not allowed to train with EMS technology. If you are unsure on whether EMS training is suitable for you, please consult your doctor to obtain medical approval before starting with EMS training.
My15minutes uses mihabodytec equipment, which is revolutionary in Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS). Designed in Germany, it is one of the fastest growing fitness devices globally. Mihabodytec combines the right ingredients for a revolutionary system: the latest innovative technologies with maximum benefit and utmost convenience. The control unit is the same size as a laptop, making it easy for mobile training. The functional waistcoat is just as convenient to use, it only takes one movement to connect it to the training device: plug & play.
The way mihabodytec works is revolutionary: the agonist, antagonist and deeper-lying muscles are all simultaneously stimulated with electrical pulses. This enables users to gently and effectively train both specific muscle groups as well as their whole body. The effect can be seen and felt in no time at all; mihabodytec is an all-round training device for different applications.

Increased muscle formation and definition - EMS training delivers stronger and more intense muscle contractions than voluntary exertion. You can train muscles and achieve better definition while also making them stronger and more responsive.
Increased maximum strength and endurance - With EMS training you gain rapid strength in a shorter period of time. Individual adjustment of intensity, duration and frequency helps achieve personal training goals quickly, effectively and consistently.
Increased speed and power - While conventional methods only make possible maximum performance by boosting strength, training with My15minutes EMS also increases speed of movement! Electrical pulses control the fast-twitch muscle fibers especially effectively and directly – no small advantage to the performance-oriented athlete! Up to 30% more muscles are being used, in other words more muscle fibres are being recruited.EMS technology can be effectively combined with traditional training techniques & fitness programs to build muscle strength, power, endurance and speed without stressing tendons or joints.
Eliminate back pain – Back pain is a common problem that affects most people at some point in their life. Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that makes it hard to move. It can start quickly if you fall or lift something too heavy, or it can get worse slowly. With EMS training you can target specific problem areas and help strengthen weaker muscle groups to correct imbalances. With possible enhancement in dysbalances and reconstructing body symmetry, the strengthened muscle corset stabilizes the spine. This results in significant reduction of back pain.
EMS is gentle on your joints - The intensity of My15minute workout is regulated through electro stimulation. The risks of strain and injury are greatly reduced which makes EMS training the ideal workout for older people or people with joint problems and injuries.
Improved circulation - EMS training enhances circulation through all connective tissue which helps improve skin tone; the removal of metabolic by-products and toxins in the lymph glands.
Weight loss/Fat Reduction - Muscles play an important part in lifting our metabolism and losing weight. Our muscles are like an engine that is constantly burning. Therefore, the larger the muscle mass, the higher your basal metabolic rate (BMR) or resting metabolic rate will be. With a higher burning rate more calories are used, resulting in better regulation of body mass and shape. My15minutes EMS training can totally tone your body, giving you beautifully toned triceps, a flat stomach, firm thighs and lifted bottom, and a toned chest & upper body.
Cellulite reduction - Instead of only treating the surface, My15minutes EMS activates the muscular and connective tissue in its entirety which leads to better circulation and the reduction of superfluous fat cells. A well trained muscle group also tightens the skin which can help reduce cellulite appearances.
Visible body contouring - EMS effectively and deeply stimulates your muscles, increasing muscle mass, tightening connective tissue, improving circulation and skin tone - positively influencing your metabolism and burning fat. The result is a beautifully contoured, lean firm body, top-to-toe!
With My15minutes EMS training, the electronic stimulation enables large muscle groups to be trained simultaneously, with a high level of intensity. This results in fat stores from the hips, waste and buttocks being effectively reduced making EMS a highly efficient body sculpting workout.
