EMS Personal Training stands for electrical muscle stimulation and is a highly effective and whole body workout done in only 30 minutes. It is a specialized training method in which electrical impulses target distinct muscle reactions. EMS Training has a wide variety of applications, from professional athletes at their physical peak to people who suffer from physical injuries, in their rehabilitation and progression into full mobility. This unique feature of our personal training gives clients the ability to stimulate muscles in a way that only their central nervous system would otherwise be able to. This can make training sessions more specified in the evaluation of muscular capacity, and help clients who lack or want to expand their current mobility potential.
A 30-minute training is split into strength training and HIT-cardio which simultaneously stimulates your muscle growth and cardiovascular system, whilst fighting cellulite and strengthening your back in no time. Gain and burn more in 30 minutes!

“Whatever your goal is, it is about finding an emotionally compelling reason why you want to do it, why you must do it, and why you will do it! It is about taking responsibility for the authorship of our stories and having stewardship over our internal lives. You do not want to push yourself to do something because pushing implies going against resistance. What you want is a pulling reason, that will pull you towards achieving the desired outcome especially in the times when you do not want to do it. This is what flow is”. As an advocate for paradigm shifts in health and thinking, Gary’s purpose is to change lives by leading through an example of what is possible through transformation. “Transformation is 80% mental or mind over matter, and the other 20% is just doing it. The most important thing I learned on my own fitness and health journey was that reality can be warp according to our will and that if you want something bad enough, you will find a way to make it happen no matter what impediments and obstacles may come in your way.”
