What is EMS?

Electrical Muscle Stimulation, or EMS, is the stimulation of muscle contraction using electric impulses. By activating muscle contraction via electrical stimuli, EMS trains your muscles in a way that traditional physical workouts cannot. In EMS training, electrical pulses activate the muscles externally. For the targeted muscle, it makes no difference whether the electric stimuli originates from the brain or electrodes. In both cases the muscle contracts. EMS sessions help reach deeper muscle tissue and do not affect the joints and results in many lasting benefits!

Why EMS?

During EMS training, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with EACH contraction and the muscle contractions are stronger and more intense than a voluntary exertion can do alone. Compared to conventional weight training, deeper muscle groups are activated which leads to better intra and inter muscular coordination. Based on these scientifically proven facts you achieve highly effective results in a short period of time.



Training at FitTec20 EMS is the complete package for everyone. Depending on your own personal goals the training can be fully customised to reach this result. Through EMS, you will immediately have improved posture and feel energised. Training with impulse stimulation works on the deeper muscles too, for effective core strength. The blood circulation in muscular and connective tissues will also be enhanced, which leads to firmer, more toned skin. Bonus: EMS is also an effective anti-cellulite treatment, working to positively break down problem fat accumulation in the body.


FitTec20 offers for the first time in South Africa, Group EMS Classes. Join the new EMS technology within a group environment! Train with up to 5 people in the first of its kind FitTec20 Group Class - double the fun and cost effective! A full body workout to suit ANYONE'S need from athlete, to stay at home mom, business man and pensioner. EMS has JUST become more affordable at R190 per class, 4 people per group!


There are numerous advantages to having an EMS fitness program personalised just for you. For one, EMS helps improve your strength and endurance by increasing the intensity of muscle contractions during workouts to reach up to 90% of your strength potential. Aside from that, it can accelerate the muscle rebuilding process, which is essential in increasing muscle mass.

Those who are looking for an effective weight reduction method can also benefit from working out at our EMS gym. EMS workouts often produce high metabolic activity during – and even after – a training session, it encourages the body to burn fat and develop lean muscle. Finally, it can promote better blood circulation, which helps release muscle tension.


Our clients benefit from back pain relief! That’s because our EMS suits are lined with electrodes along the spinal column, which stimulates those rarely trained back muscles. The strengthening of these muscles via electrical stimuli often leads to less strain on the back, better posture, and relief from back pain.

 EMS training has its roots in the medical field. Initially used to help patients in their recovery from injuries or to help with the reduction of pain-related symptoms. EMS research from Germany concludes that electrical stimulus activates the major muscle groups and more importantly, the deeper muscle groups which are difficult to activate through conventional training methods.

 The research participants not only reported a reduction of back pain (88.7% of all participants) but also felt an improvement in their mood, vitality and well-being. FitTec20 EMS an effective and time saving way to improve your overall health!
