Bodytec studio in Sandton
Positives:For someone who has the fitness level of a sloth, what a great idea!
Totally doable exercises aimed at toning muscles without getting completely out of breath
The Bodytec studio in Sandton is elegant and beautifully decorated and feels more like a spa than a workout joint. 20 minutes is really all it takes and what a pleasant workout.
The training was tailored to suit me and my body and I didn’t feel like I had been hit by a bus afterwards. The system uses electro muscle stimulation while doing low impact basic exercises. The process was explained comprehensively and the knowledgeable trainer made me feel completely at ease and not silly at all for my level of fitness. This caters for men and women, from body builders to couch potatoes.
The session begins with a discussion about your level of fitness and any pre-existing medical conditions. You then go into the spotless and modern changing room to get dressed into the provided workout gear.
You are then hooked up to the electrodes through a vest and strategically placed belts in front of what looks like a treadmill. The electrodes are then tuned to your comfortable intensity and the 20 minute workout begins.
I felt like I had just attended a pilates class on steroids! I would definitely recommend this to people with limited time on their hands and a desire to feel good for a change after using their bodies.
