What is EMS?

EMS training is a holistic, highly efficient and time-saving method of whole-body training. 

EMS training has long been used in rehabilitation after injuries and in competitive sports. 

Up to 90% of the entire muscles are individually controlled with electrical impulses. In this way you can achieve considerable training progress quickly, in a way that is gentle on your joints and with little effort.

How does EMS training work?

During classic strength training, the brain sends impulses via the nervous system that create a contraction and stimulate certain muscles. However, not all muscles have a well-developed connection to the brain, and these muscles are not as easily activated and therefore not as well strengthened. During EMS training, all large muscle groups are stimulated at the same time and the motor nerve connections associated with muscle movement are promoted. By sending electrical impulses directly to these motor nerves, even weak muscles that have poorer nerve connections to the brain (e.g. glutes) are activated. Since EMS training can target all large muscle groups, especially the deep muscles, at the same time, more intensive training is possible right from the start, which builds more muscle fibers faster and more efficiently. More active muscle tissue requires higher energy intake, which means more calories are burned, even at rest after exercise!

1-2 TIMES a week is enough

This cutting-edge technology delivers all the benefits of a 90-minute workout in just 20 minutes. To maintain your muscles, it is beneficial to complete a weekly workout; to achieve a significant change, it is recommended to train twice a week. YESBODY sets no limits, but innovates, improves and advances EMS training to maximize the potential of this amazing method. The group fits are unique, offering FUN and community and still only lasting 20 minutes. YESBODY EMS training allows you to maintain and build muscle mass and burn fat, increases calorie burning and accelerates metabolism. EMS is particularly suitable for people with injuries or limitations.

EMS training will help:



EMS training starts exactly where there are possible problem areas. Intensive training boosts your metabolism and stimulates fat burning. The current pulses ensure a slim and toned body, especially on the arms, back, stomach, buttocks and thighs.



The muscle impulses not only train the superficial muscles, the stimuli also reach the deep muscle layers. In this way, imbalances can be balanced and tensions can be released. The development of the back muscles in particular ensures a reduction in back pain and an upright posture.



Pain in the supporting muscles of the back, stomach and pelvic floor often leads to poor posture, which can cause further pain. In order to counteract this cycle, regular training is essential. With targeted EMS training, it is possible to minimize pain and improve posture by building up the deep muscles.





It's not just recreational athletes who benefit from increased performance and strength through EMS training. People who train in high-performance sports can also Thanks to the diverse technique and tactic-specific training units from EMS, you can optimize your success in a short amount of time.


EMS training is extremely efficient when it comes to strengthening all muscles involved through targeted pelvic floor training. These are difficult to achieve through normal strength training. The effects are amazing - even cases of urinary incontinence can be cured through targeted EMS pelvic floor training. Studies by the University of Bayreuth showed that 75 percent of those affected achieved good to very good results with pelvic floor exercises during whole-body EMS training. That's because Training with electrical impulses strengthens the pelvic floor.


“Time is money,” as the old saying goes, and that’s especially important in today’s fast-paced world. With EMS you can achieve the results of a 90 minute workout in just 20 minutes, including strengthening and cardio training to your liking.
