My name is Mayra and I’m your EMS Certified Training Instructor and Certified Personal Trainer. My goal is to help you achieve your goal such as losing weight, gain muscle, learn to exercise correctly, master working your abs, legs or glutes. My passion for fitness has allowed me to connect with amazing people who want to be healthy at any age.
In 2014 I decided to get in the best shape of my life. As a mother of 2, former Army soldier and long distance runner, I decided I could do it alone. I did some running. I did a few at home training programs and I got some results, but not what I was expecting. I exercised day in and day out only to find the scale going down a few pounds, but not looking like I worked out 5 to 6 times per week. I didn’t have any muscle definition considering how frequently I was hitting those dumbbells and various machines at the gym. I started doing research about training techniques such as crossfit, yoga, pilates, weightlifting, kickboxing, boxing, plyometrics, endurance training, high intensity interval training (HIIT), low impact training, band training, etc… It became clear to me that a combination would work better than just one style or type of training. I decided I would try everything I liked. And I liked almost every style of training I just mentioned! Until I tried EMS training.
With a new decade starting, I want to usher in and normalize the use of EMS as a safe way to train your entire body during short 20-minute sessions. Technology and fitness have come together to help us live a healthier life.
Many times we train without knowing if we truly exercised a desired body part/area in the correct way. The term “muscle/mind connection,” used by many professionals in the industry, is often a concern for many who have difficulty improving a desired body part. EMS removes the guessing. A muscle/mind (neuromuscular) connection is fortified during exercise because at all times 12 muscles are stimulated while doing simple movements, such as lunges and squats. My objective is to help you maintain proper posture and movement during every moment of exercise with EMS.
According to XBODY WORLD, EMS training has been used by Physiotherapists for decades. Electrodes are strategically placed within a training suit over all major muscles groups resulting in a simple muscle contraction. A total of 12 muscles will activate during a 20 minute training session resulting in an amazing fitness experience.
We wont force you to look at a scale for measuring improvements. In fact, using a weight scale a one is a poor gauge for measuring your health and fitness level. It just gives you a point of reference. With EMS training your point of reference will be the intensity of your previous session. You can actually measure your improvement not just by soreness, but also by percentages utilized during EMS training.
