Travis Maddocks is a managing partner and product designer at KM Product Design, and is passionate about taking client ideas to manufacture and seeing them come to life. “The process of turning an idea into a tangible manufactured product and holding it in one’s hand is a feeling like no other,” he explains. “Extracting the necessary information from clients can sometimes be a challenge, but nothing we can’t handle.”
In his personal time, Travis enjoys anything motorcycle related. “Currently, I have six and a half bikes,” he says with a laugh. “The half is a project I am working on slowly.” Travis is also venturing into off road endure riding, which he has found to be quite the workout. After hearing that his friends, Kelly and Heinz, had begun training at BODYTEC Brooklyn, Travis decided to try it out at BODYTEC Bryanston in the hopes of conditioning his muscles to prevent any injury, and increase toning and fat loss.
“I used to play a lot of touch rugby, until an injury cut that short,” Travis says. “After three years of no running at all due to the injury, and attending BODYTEC for a year, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to take my friend’s Labrador for a run without pulling anything.” BODYTEC has helped Travis keep his body weight consistent, whilst noticing a drastic change in his body composition. “I love that I now have the ability to sprint in short bursts with no supplementary running training without injury,” he says with a smile. “And all this in just 20 minutes a week. It’s fantastic. It does also help that the Bryanston team is truly amazing.”

Because there is no strain on your joints as you don’t use any weights during your workout, EMS is used by physiotherapists to rehabilitate and maintain and improve fitness levels while you heal. It’s an ideal solution for those with joint problems or back pain.
BODYTEC uses Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) to achieve stronger, more intense muscle contractions than a voluntary exertion can achieve alone.
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.
During EMS training, 90% of muscles are activated simultaneously with each contraction.
