Whether it’s football, volleyball, running or mountaineering – every sport makes different demands on the athlete. These athletes also benefit from a high level of basic fitness, no matter what sport. This is also true for Joey Kelly, who is increasing this level with just 20 minutes of EMS training per week at “Körperformen”. Existing muscle imbalances and deficits can also be alleviated in the short term and balanced in the long term.

Bonn, 27 June 2019 | Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) has already been used for many years in performance sports to effectively enhance performance. The EMS target group of “Körperformen” includes numerous athletes including extreme athlete Joey Kelly. “In just 20 minutes a week, athletes can effectively increase their muscle strength and overall fitness, further improving their athletic performance. This is because the interval-like load and simultaneous activation of all the muscles can build strength, speed and endurance faster and more intensively,” says Sammy Pesenti, Managing Director of the Bonn EMS provider “Körperformen”. One-sided loading is avoided. Any existing muscular imbalances can also be rectified.

Increased strength and endurance thanks to EMS training

Muscle strength forms the basis for each individual’s performance. This is because it is only thanks to a sufficiently high level of muscular stability that high performance is possible in the first place. “Through improved synchronisation and recruitment of the motor units, EMS training stimulates and builds up deep layers of muscle at the “Körperformen” studios. Circulation and thus metabolism are also activated and the body’s cells are supplied with nutrients,” explains Marcel Kentenich, co-owner of the Bonn-based company. The resulting strength potential is greater, as a larger proportion of muscle fibres is available. One reason why extreme athlete Joey Kelly also relies on EMS training at “Körperformen” and supports us as a brand ambassador: “The professionally supervised and personalised EMS training at ‘Körperformen’ is an important part of my training plan and ensures an improvement in my stamina.”

Athletes use EMS training to compensate for muscular imbalances

Physical stress and imbalances can be compensated for with the EMS workout – in addition to improving performance. “My exertion-related pain, which I feel especially after demanding extreme sports events, has decreased significantly since starting EMS training,” Joey Kelly reports. Training without additional weights strengthens the muscles in a short time and is gentle on the joints. This noticeably reduces stress-related pain and ultimately also prevents injuries. In addition, the well-qualified trainers always pay attention to the performance of each person during the entire workout.
