FAQ’s

Is it possible I will be shocked during the EMS workout?

No, there is no possibility of receiving an electric shock during the workout as the equipment operates at low voltage, using an external battery. The maximum intensity of the pulses is 0.05 Watt RMS.

What should I bring with me to my EMS session?

All you need is a pair of socks and athletic shoes. We provide the rest!

Can I train at Lightning Fit more than two times per week?

At Lightning Fit, we put health and safety first. We do not recommend training with EMS more than two times per week because the workout is very intense and the body needs more time to recover than after a traditional workout. It is very important to have a sufficient resting period to avoid symptoms of overexertion. It is best to rest for two to three days between sessions.

Will training using EMS cause me to get sore?

Yes, soreness is most prominent after the first EMS session as it works the deep muscle tissues and activates up to 95% of your muscle fibers, normally impossible to target with traditional training. Muscle soreness can last from two to five days after training.

When will I see visible results?

Following Lightning Fit’s protocol of two quick 25-minute workouts a week, most clients notice a significant decrease in cellulite and an increase in muscle tone within 10 sessions.

How much weight will I lose?

Our goal at Lightning Fit is to change your body composition. We want to reduce fat, eliminate cellulite and tighten your skin all while we work on your 6-pack and lifting that booty. Many of our clients have reported significant weight loss while following our protocol. However, it is important to note that each individual’s body composition is unique and therefore, individuals respond to the protocol in different ways.

Who is prohibited from the use of EMS?

The equipment must not be used on pregnant women, people under the age of 16, people with heart disease, pacemakers or other electronic medical devices. It is also not recommended for those with a predisposition to epileptic seizures or convulsions, infectious diseases, high fever, blood pressure-related illnesses, skin related diseases, or those with metal body implants.

How will training at Lightning Fit affect my skin?

Aside from the fitness results, EMS tightens skin and can effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What is the history of EMS?

Emerging in the 1960s, EMS technology was first used by doctors and physical therapists to rehabilitate muscles after surgery or injury. In the 1970’s, Europe and Russia began to use this technology to train their world-class athletes, thus paving the way for how it is used today. EMS was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in non-medical exercise settings in 2014. Lightning Fit combines this cutting-edge technology with expert training programs to provide a customizable, one-of-a-kind workout experience, suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

Can I use EMS if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

No, EMS training cannot be used during pregnancy and during breastfeeding.
