20,000 Crunches in 30 Minutes – It’s Possible

July 24, 2019

Toning the abs has been an exercise in inefficiency – and often disappointment – for as long as exercise culture has been part of our consciousness. The old mainstay, sit-ups, can turn out to be great for working the hips, unless your technique is perfect. When and if your technique is perfect, sit-ups still fail to reach obliques and the lower-region abs. Crunches for most people seem to be neck-wrenching more than trunk-challenging. We saw an exercise video from two Scotsmen the other day that said twisting the torso is the key to working the abs – but then those two were wearing kilts, too. Getting the toned tummy of your dreams shouldn’t be a mystery.

Along comes Emsculpt. Technology, for once, has offered us something that no feasible amount of hard work could accomplish – a focused form of exercise no person could do solo, plus a more direct route for fat loss than exercise alone could produce. Emsculpt removes fat and builds muscle in an altogether new, direct, efficient, and effective way.

High-Intensity Goes High-Tech

The field of exercise once held “high-intensity” to be largely the domain of “the groaners,” the gym-boys who grunt and drop their barbells and skip re-racking for the next person. No longer. Emsculpt introduces a new form of high-intensity exercise that no one could achieve on their own, using High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Energy (HIFEM). This is fundamentally unlike any earlier electrical stimulation method of firing muscles, because it goes deeper and stimulates more thoroughly.

The FDA-approved device behind Emsculpt produces “supra-maximal contractions.” That means the stimulus is significantly greater than that required just to activate the muscles. In fact, all the nerve and muscle fibers in the area are activated and 20,000 muscle contractions per session are induced. This produces muscle development beyond that achievable through working the muscles on your own.

The bonus beyond this unprecedented exercise is that the electromagnetic energy breaks down fat cell walls so that fat can be cleansed away by the body’s lymphatic system. While muscle-building and fat-burning were once held to be nearly separate – such as cardio and iso-exercise routines – Emsculpt puts both desired results into the same initiative.

Why Here?

Our clients and patients are committed to their best selves, outside and in. To support you in your goals, whether for fitness or appearance or both, we found Emsculpt to be a natural extension of our expertise in non-invasive ways to achieve body sculpting. The data we saw looked like this:

  • 16% muscle growth
  • 19% fat loss
  • 91% satisfaction with treatment results

A typical course of Emsculpt treatments consists of four, 30-minute appointments. Right for you? Come in and let’s talk it over.
