How Electronic Muscle Stimulation Can Create More Effective, More Efficient and Safer Gym Workouts
Jackie Wilson, founding partner of Nova Fitness Studios in New York City, Manhattan’s first, only, and largest fitness technology facility joins Entrepreneurial Fit Radio.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Jackie Wilson discuss the following:
- Electronic Muscle Stimulation, or EMS, has been used quite successfully for a number of years to help rehab patients recover from injuries and chronic pain. How does EMS help people who aren’t in rehab, but are looking for a new way to enhance their exercise regimens?
- According to Quora.com, the average gym goer spends three to five hours per week working out. How do these conventional exercise regimens compare to the time that it takes to get a comparable workout using EMS, and how is an EMS workout safer?
- Your website says that Nova Fitness Studio aims to serve the unique fitness goals, needs, and challenges of women. What is it about Nova’s approach that makes your exercise services the right fit for women?
- EMS is used by elite athletes in their workouts, including professionals, Olympians, and top college athletes. Can EMS also be useful to people who aren’t top athletes, or may not have any much experience in the gym?
- You began your career as a General Counsel and player agent at All Pro Sports & Entertainment in Denver, which is one of America’s top independent agencies for professional athletes. You then left All Pro to open your own fitness consultancy, where you trained professional and Division 1 football and basketball players. When in your legal career did you realize that you had a passion and a calling to become a certified fitness trainer – and now, a founding partner of a fitness technology studio in Manhattan?
