(Charge Fitness)

What if we told you you could take charge of your fitness with only two 20-minute workouts per week?

At Victoria’s Charge Fitness, they can make that your reality, with a focus on less time, more energy, and quicker results.

Charge Fitness provides workouts through EMS (Electro-Muscle Stimulation) training, which works by stimulating the muscles to contract harder and longer.

In turn, this provides a more effective and complete muscle contraction, allowing gym-goers to contract 80% of their muscles versus a standard contraction rate of 30%.

Sound intriguing? If you’re interested in trying it for yourself, you’re in luck! We’re giving away 6 free sessions for you AND a friend at Charge Fitness – contest details are below.

The science behind EMS

In plain language, EMS training requires you to wear a special suit during your workout. The suit sends an electrical impulse to the muscles to create an involuntary muscle contraction. During a typical workout, your brain is sending signals to your muscles telling them to contract – this is called voluntary contraction.

(Charge Fitness)

The combination of voluntary and involuntary contraction creates a deeper, more complete muscle contraction.

During traditional strength training the brain sends impulses which stimulate certain muscles to contract. However, not all muscles have a well-developed connection to the brain and these muscles are not activated as easily and therefore they will not develop so well.

Training stimulates all the major muscle groups and in turn helps you get a better, more complete workout.

Why it works

Charge Fitness Training is a safe way to resistance train without putting added stress on your body and joints, while taking up little of your precious time.

With Charge Fitness you can achieve the results of a 90-minute training session in just 20 minutes, and because it is so effective in building muscle and burning calories you only have to train 2 days a week.
