We tell all new clients that a safe “current” flows through their body during EMS training. EMS training has no risks when used correctly and is not harmful to the body. Nevertheless, there are some exceptions for when EMS can be a risk and to whom.
You should never do an EMS training when …
If you have a pacemaker
People with pacemakers should not do EMS. The electrical impulses could cause the pacemaker to malfunction or stop working.
If you are pregnant
During pregnancy, the risks of EMS training would be too high to participate. It would be better to wait until a few weeks after childbirth so start training. After that, EMS is excellent for regression and body firming.
If you are sick
If you have a cold, fever or a bacterial infection, you should also take a break from all workouts and EMS training.
Always consult a doctor to ensure that training is safe if you have any of the following medical conditions
- Cancer and tumor diseases
- Neurological disorders
- Cardiovascular diseases
Also people with an implant or complaints with physical strain should consult their doctor first. Training under therapeutic supervision would then be possible under certain circumstances.
As with any intensive training, it must be ensured that EMS is only performed in good physical condition and without pain. This includes avoiding alcohol, drugs, other substances or exhausting stress in advance.
Basically, the following applies:
Anyone who is healthy and able to do sports can also do EMS training without any risks!
