Is EMS training safe?

EMS is a well-researched technology that has been established for many decades. Sessions always take place in conjunction with a knowledgeable trainer, which helps to ensure safe operation. Trainers are taught using structures which have been specifically designed to ensure that safety is integrated into the programming from the very beginning.

Guidelines for safe use have been developed by examining practical experiences and combining them with scientific research. These safety-first rules are now the gold standard for all professional EMS providers, such as Gettfit.


During traditional strength training, the brain sends bioelectrical impulses which cause certain muscles to contract. However, not all muscles have a well-developed connection to the brain, and these muscles are not as easily activated, therefore they will not develop so well. This way we can never train with full force, even if we want to.

EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) however, with low-strength electrical impulses, directly stimulates our deep muscles thus deceiving our body’s natural reactions and training almost 100% of our musculature.

EMS training is a completely safe form of working out and as such, it has been used for medical and rehabilitation purposes for a long time


How it works 1

Saves time
You can save lot of time since the training only takes 20-25 minutes and trains the entire musculature at the same time.

How it works 2

Compared to the typically 1-1.5 hour-long sessions of traditional training, 15-20 minutes with Get Fit two or three times a week is enough to reach the same goal. While the results of traditional training start to show after 15-20 trainings, EMS gives you visible results after 4-5 sessions.

How it works 3

Fat burning
This is the most efficient calorie burning method that helps you reach the most optimal body fat percentage the quickest way possible.

How it works 4

Reaching the deep skeletal muscles with electric impulses improves our posture as well as our well-being.

How it works 5

Surprising as it may sound, EMS is effective in combating osteoporosis since the pulling effect of the tendons on the bones due to the use of muscles results in the strengthening of the bones.

How it works 6

Blood supply
The muscle pump effectively fights against cellulitis and improves blood supply in the tissues surrounding the muscles.

How it works 7

Stronger skeletal muscle
Back pain due to weak skeletal muscles can be relieved by strengthening the muscles next to the spinal column.

How it works 8

Protection of the joints
Joints are relieved due to the precise targeting of the electrical impulses in the muscles.

How it works 9

Perfect unity
Even the weakest points of the body can be strengthened perfectly because external impulses improve the balance of the musculature.


Being a very intensive form of exercise, EMS training must be dealt with a caution in case of medical constrains.

Electric stimulation cannot be applied under these circumstances.

Electric stimulation cannot be applied on the given body part if any of the relative contraindications exist. However, other parts of the body may be subject to electric stimulation and training.

Viral or bacterial infections

Cancer diseases


Arterial cardiovascular disorders, advanced arteriosclerosis

Haemophilia, bruising, haemorrhage

Complex neurological disorder

Valvular problems

Skin intolerance

Diabetes, type I.



Abdominal and inguinal hernia

Get Fit EMS training compared to conventional training methods

The EMS device is able to achieve what the human brain cannot.

Electric muscle stimulation (EMS) induces muscle contraction with the help of electric current. Such contraction is different from the one induced in traditional training controlled by the central nervous system.

The nature and intensity of the stimulus depends on the parameters configurated on the device.

Electric impulse provides the tools for engaging the muscles. This impulse is transmitted from the EMS device through the neurons and motoneurons to the muscle. Its role is to induce muscle motion.

This mechanic response is what we call a ‘twitch’. Every time an electric impulse is repeated, it induces a muscle twitch.
