Luan Nel, Artist


'For the last four years I have been battling to get back into a routine where going to gym was a matter of every day life. This was due to intermitant albeit serious health issues. I was diagnosed with A-Vascular Necrosis in 2013 and this changed everything.

I had both my hips replaced with brand new, ultra modern Titanium and porcelein prosthesis and could almost immediately walk again. This was within my reach but I found my mobility not exactly as it was before the disease struck and due to the long running nature of my ailment I suffered from terrible muscle wastage in my legs. No doubt this played an enormous part in my lack of flexibility and stamina. I had also gained no less than 23 kilos.

I went and did my first BODYTEC® session with a friend. I absolutely fell for this electrifying exercise hook, line and sinker that very first day. I signed up and have been going weekly like clockwork. In this time I have gained almost 100% of the use of my legs back. I can balance (which was impossible only months before) I rectified my muscle wastage and in fact am starting to seriously build muscle.'

How BODYTEC® EMS does more for you in 20 minutes

Stronger and more intense muscle contractions

BODYTEC® uses electro stimulation to achieve stronger and more intense muscle contractions than a voluntary exertion can achieve alone.

Focuses on specific muscle groups

Your personal trainer can control each muscle group by adjusting the training intensity of the various muscle groups on the EMS device according to your individual goals.

It activates up to 90% of the muscles

During EMS training, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with each contraction.
