We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
Racking our brains for ideas of what to buy someone as the perfect birthday or Christmas gift, scrolling through pages of uninspiring items on online shopping sites, but seeing absolutely nothing that catches the eye. It’s not a very good feeling, especially when the important day is fast approaching!
A wireless EMS bodysuit is the perfect gift for 4 types of people:
- The “I’m too lazy to workout” person
- The super-sporty fitness freak
- The busy professionals
- The frequent traveler
If you’ve landed here, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of, or are already using, Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) as a way of boosting your workout routine or seeing faster results at the gym.
And if so, it’s also fairly likely that someone else in your life would be interested in reaping the benefits of this technology too.
So why not consider a wireless EMS suit as that ideal gift?
In this post, I’m going to suggest four types of people you may have in your life who may be very happy to receive a piece of kit like that as a gift.
Let’s get going!
Person #1 – The “I do want to get into shape but I’m too lazy to work out” person
I’m willing to bet at least one person in your life sprang to mind just then! After all, many people want to get into better shape, but not so many are willing to put in the time and effort to actually achieve that.
And to be fair, especially after a day at the office, it can sometimes take a fairly heroic amount of self-discipline to choose an evening of squats, bench presses and rowing machines over one of sofa, pizza and Netflix.
But even the most avid series binge-watcher may well be persuaded to start getting into the gym and work out if they can start to see solid results in weeks instead of months, with shorter and more effective sessions.
On top of that, wireless EMS suits can also be used at home while not doing any exercise at all – a session of artificial muscle stimulation can continue to keep the desired muscle groups active can be done while:
- tidying your room
- reading a book
- doing the dishes
- shopping at the supermarket
All mundane daily tasks which would normally be the last activities you would associate with improving fitness!
Having said that, combining EMS with more traditional methods of exercise will deliver results faster. And indeed, many athletes and fitness training professionals recommend this low-tech and high-tech combination as the best way to reach your fitness goals.
Person #2 – The Super-Sporty Fitness Freak
Okay so here we are talking about the polar opposite of the person with the ‘couch potato’ tendencies mentioned above.
This is the person who takes their fitness very seriously, hitting the gym whenever they can find the time, or the athlete training every day looking for ways to gain an edge over their competition or shave those extra few milliseconds off their PB before the big event.
Well, an EMS bodysuit could be the ideal gift for this person too – many athletes incorporate EMS into their training routines, and numerous scientific studies have shown that sportspeople doing so on average gain measurable advantages over those who don’t.
Another huge advantage of EMS for this kind of person:
This is something that high-level athletes absolutely MUST take care to incorporate into their training programs. An injury that comes at just the wrong time can seriously damage your chances of winning, or even turn that big upcoming event into a write-off altogether.
Not to mention the fact that following routines that frequently push your body to its absolute limits over extended periods can take a heavy toll on your overall physical and mental well-being. So a good recovery strategy is key.
Common methods of allowing muscles to recover after heavy exercise include:
- a good old-fashioned sleep
- low-intensity exercise (such as a gentle swim)
- a massage.
This last one is where EMS comes into the picture – EMS bodysuits can be set to a low-frequency setting, effectively serving as a massage to get the blood circulating, reduce muscle stiffness and encourage psychological relaxation.
And, of course, there is no need to find a massage therapist – obviously that is not a service that will be available everywhere you go!
Person #3 – Busy Professionals
This has got to be one of the most common reasons for not exercising, or at least skipping sessions too often and so not seeing the improvements you want.
Work, childcare, struggling to make enough time for friends and family, the list goes on. This is where the time-saving aspect of EMS has such potential.
Your super-busy significant other, family member or friend whose fitness routine you want to help boost can bring EMS into their workouts to slash the time spent exercising while enhancing the muscle gain or weight loss they want to see.
Just two or three 20 minute-sessions are enough to get into shape – even without any other form of physical exercise – although as mentioned above, incorporating EMS into a conventional routine will greatly improve the results.
Person #4 – Frequent Travelers
Another big obstacle to establishing a regular fitness routine for some people is that they are always on the move, whether that is for business or pleasure.
For these people, it simply isn’t possible to have a regular gym, place to exercise or personal trainer to keep them on track and offer the crucial support and encouragement we all need from time to time.
Enter EMS (again!) – the portability, flexibility and ease of use in any location make a wireless suit an invaluable fitness aid for when you’re on the go – outdoors, indoors, in any place one might find oneself.
Especially in the troubled times the world is in right now, for those trapped in self-isolation or quarantine, a wireless EMS suit is the ideal tool to help keep those workouts going, those muscles strengthening and that figure looking good.
As always, it’s important to consult a health and/or fitness professional and develop a sound training program before going ahead with taking a new direction in your fitness regime. They are not suitable for everyone.
But wireless EMS suits really are transforming the way keen fitness enthusiasts, busy office workers, frequent travelers and reluctant gym-goers alike are working out and keeping their body in the best shape it can be.
If you can think of anyone in your life that falls into any of these categories, then just maybe a wireless EMS suit would be the birthday or Christmas gift that would put that big smile on their face.
If so, have a look at the AWI Powersuits available on awifit.com – one of these could definitely be the fitness boost your loved one or friend needs.
Either way, as always, we hope you stay active, stay fit and stay healthy. Enjoy and take pride in keeping your body in the best shape it can be!
