What is Studiotec?
Studiotec is the first fitness concept of its kind in North America. It is the perfect fitness solution for the busy professional who values his or her time. Build core strength and a slimmer, more toned body without the hassles or loss of time associated with traditional fitness centres.
Our EMS workout targets all muscle groups simultaneously and amplifies effort. In just 20 minutes with one of our qualified trainers, you’ll have accomplished more than you would after hours at a traditional gym.
Build and tone muscles
The EMS suit covers all major muscle groups—even the ones you might have missed at a traditional gym. As you train, your muscles work against their own contractions, building muscle strength and tone. It’s easy, and you can’t go wrong.
Balanced all-body training
The built-in electrodes target, stimulate and develop all the muscle groups, even if you don’t. Our trainers scale and adjust the level of each group separately so the otherwise “weaker links” of the body can be strengthened. Optimal core strength is a major benefit of EMS training!
No joint stress
The electrical impulses work on the muscles directly; there is no pressure on the joints, so they are not overworked—which is often the case with weight workouts.
Relieve back problems
As there are electrodes built into the training suit along the spinal cord, those rarely trained muscles get worked as well. Muscles therefore get stronger, which can lead to the relief of back problems.
Achieve optimal body fat
Since it is an effective strengthening workout, it transforms how the body uses up calories. It is a very effective tool for weight loss and fat removal. EMS has been shown to attack and reduce problem fat accumulations.
Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) technology is not new. Physiotherapists have been applying EMS therapeutically for decades in cases of muscle rehabilitation. XBody has simply taken this proven technology to the next level! Imagine a full body suit that applies the power of EMS across all of your major muscle groups simultaneously while you work out. XBody amplifies your own efforts. The effect is a better, more balanced workout that accomplishes in only minutes what would normally take hours at the gym. XBody works your core like never before and tones and strengthens all of your muscle groups at the same time.
XBody technology has been widely used across Europe for a number of years now and is currently distributed across thousands of EMS studios in France, Germany, Spain and 27 other countries worldwide.
THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF EMS
Training at Studiotec is the complete package. Through EMS, you will immediately feel improved posture and that energized feeling of having positively taxed your body! What a feeling—it’s electric! Training with impulse stimulation works on the deeper muscles too, for effective core strength. The blood circulation in muscular and connective tissues will also be enhanced, which leads to firmer, more toned skin. Bonus: EMS is also an effective anti-cellulite treatment, working to positively break down problem fat accumulation in the body.
How many times have you gone to the gym only to join the crowds in line for your preferred machine? At Studiotec your trainer takes you through your personalized session at the time you reserved.
Intimidated by the body fashionistas and gym rats at more traditional sweat-shops? At Studiotec you’ll be pleased by our clean, intimate studio surroundings and private showers/changing areas.
No gym bag required!
We have everything you need all ready for you when you arrive. Leave the gym bag at home. We'll even do the laundry when you are done!
Is it safe?
Yes. Our product has been evaluated and approved by the CSA Special Inspection Service as per the guidelines for Field Approval of Health Care Equipment.
When can I see results?
You already feel vitalized after the first training session. Visible success, such as a better posture usually sets in after three sessions. Reshaping of your body, power increase and improvement of your skin’s appearance will be visible after six consecutive sessions within a period of three weeks.
Can I lose weight with EMS?
Yes. In the first phase of the training, you lose centimeters and in the second phase, fat depots are attacked. You also burn more calories because your muscle activity is working five times more, which means that energy consumption will increase.
Why is XBody’s EMS technology much more effective than conventional weight training?
The EMS full body workout activates over 90% of the muscle fibers at the same time during each contraction. As opposed to conventional strength training, deeper muscles are used, as well. Therefore, the training produces a much greater effect.
Can you do EMS training in the long term?
Yes. Just like with conventional strength training, you should workout regularly. If you do not workout over an extended period of time, the muscles will be reduced to their original status.
What should I bring?
Since your specialized workout clothes, water, towels, access to showers and parking are available on site, just bring running shoes and a smile.
Is the stimulation current dangerous?
No. Training or therapy using XBody’s low-frequency current stimulation is not dangerous. During this process, small intrinsic electric pulses initiate every movement and exclusively activate the striated skeletal muscles. Therefore, the impulse does not seem foreign to the body nor reach the organs or the heart.
Who is EMS useful for?
In general, EMS training is suitable for almost everyone – man or woman, 16 years and older. Contraindications are as follows:
- Heart disease
- Extreme blood pressure
