DUBAI – A 20-minute workout that is equivalent to three hours in the gym? That’s what got former body builder turned fitness instructor Lazar Sretenovic hooked on EMS.
EMS or Electro Muscle Stimulation is a new kind of exercise that uses electrical impulses to stimulate muscles. The targeted workout allows you to tone up quickly, Sretenovic says.
How quickly? You only need to do 20 minutes, and within those minutes you can lose up to 600 calories, Sretenovic says.
Expat Media caught up with the fitness instructor at Treppan Hotel & Suites by Fakhruddin where his team is exclusively offering the service to in-house guests.
“With newer technology, EMS devices are now very mobile, making it possible for anyone to do their training virtually anywhere,” Sretenovic says.
The use of electrical impulses to heal muscles in not new, and the process has been used for years in physical therapy.
It has only been in recent years, however, that fitness experts have begun to also harness the beneficial effects of electrical impulses to build up muscles in high-intensity workouts.
“The good thing about it is stimulation of the muscle is 90 percent. Why? Because we only use muscle contraction. The electrical impulses are connected to the muscle,” Sretenovic explains.
The 26-year-old fitness instructor says EMS blends perfectly with the busy lifestyle of UAE residents. “Most people are very busy and I found that EMS is the perfect solution for them because not everyone has the time to go to the gym,” he says. ICA/Expat Media
