EMS Trainer Course

More and more, EMS training is becoming a popular workout method – and it’s not hard to see why! With the growing demand for this type of training, so too will jobs for EMS trainers. So, if you’re a personal trainer or someone who wants to break into the fitness industry, doing an EMS trainer course is a very good idea.

What Is Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training is a kind of training that utilises a wearable device that attaches to the body and stimulates your muscles via tiny electrodes that accelerate your workout and enhance your body-toning results. EMS training is a good way to improve a person’s overall fitness, tone their body, and strengthen their muscles in less time than regular exercise.

There are many benefits of EMS training. Some of these are:

  • Weight loss and fat reduction
  • Muscle building (hypertrophy)
  • Better posture, stronger back

The amazing benefits of EMS training mean that there will be many clients who are keen on taking this type of training up. The fact that they will be able to see tangible results in 20 minutes will mean that this form of exercise will be very popular among busy executives.

This means that studying EMS training, particularly in South Africa, is a great idea. The best EMS trainer course on offer is the one offered at Trifocus Fitness Academy.
