miha bodytec EMS-PT: an irresistible way to boost your in-club offer

By

Post pandemic, technology continues to shape the way consumers access fitness. Apps and wearables are helping people reach their goals while digital offerings – which grew exponentially during lockdowns – continue to thrive.

Electro-Muscle Stimulation Personal Training (EMS-PT) takes the merging of fitness and technology to a whole new level, to ensure members see results sooner than with any other workout. For clubs looking to improve revenue generation, EMS-PT creates an innovative exercise offer either on the gym floor, in a studio or as a shop-in-shop model. The miha bodytec i-body device has a small footprint and is fully portable; all it requires is a plug socket.

EMS-PT will ensure your facility stands out from the crowded fitness sector, as it appeals to a nation calling out for alternative ways to keep active. Sessions are only 20 minutes and always trainer led on a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio, allowing you to fit in more clients without altering hourly PT rates.

EMS-PT is great for the avid gym goer, accelerating their outcomes and enhancing performance. On the flip side, EMS-PT is great for members who don’t thrive in the typical gym environment; it’s a non-intimating, zero weight bearing and involves slow, controlled moves whilst muscles are simultaneously being stimulated. As well as the obvious body sculpting benefits, EMS-PT is especially effective for lower back pain, postnatal recovery and pelvic floor strengthening.

A survey of EMS users showed 38 per cent also have a regular gym membership, proving it doesn’t compete for revenue generated by membership. With EMS-PT retention rates sitting at 85%, there’s never been a better time to get on board.
