Fitness Technology Contracts Muscles In Hard-To-Reach Places

Personal20 Co-founder and Executive Director Connie Ruiz wanted to be one of the first to bring Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) fitness technology to America.

The Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training requires clients to wear a special suit with 10 pairs of electrodes. EMS has the ability to work all types of muscle fibers.

The EMS method is perfect for people with injuries, people preparing for hip, knee or shoulder surgeries, or people who are simply busy.

That’s why it’s called Electronic Muscle Stimulation (EMS).”
