Why exercise isn’t always the best way to build body definition
Are you dreading that 6am wake up call to get on the treadmill before a long day in the office?
We’ve all been there – that continuous slog to try and reach the ideal body, as drummed into us every day by pop culture.
Just forget that many celebs probably haven’t touched a carb for ten years, generally undergo intense workout regimes (usually with a personal trainer) on a daily basis and are more likely to dream about cake when they go to sleep.
Thing is, many of us may not have the time or energy to maintain such an intense lifestyle.
Or maybe we do and it’s just not working for us.
And isn’t that just the thing? Because, it turns out, exercise might not be as helpful as we think it is.
Research has indicated that without a dedicated diet to go with it, it’s probably not going to make much of a difference, anyway. (https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/exercise-not-lose-weight-help-diet-gym-fitness-study-a7727556.html)
Before we get into it though, we’re not telling you to quit exercise altogether – it’s still one of the most powerful ways to protect your body against things like heart disease, strokes and Type 2 diabetes.
But when it comes to shedding those pounds, the problem is that the daily run only accounts for a very small amount of calorie loss.
Take, for example, a two-hour bike ride. This may only help you drop 500 calories – and that’s less than two cupcakes.
It’s true that in today’s market, there are a number of ways to make the body battle that little bit easier, though. From non-surgical fat freezing to invasive lipo procedures, more and more people are turning to the professionals.
However, that doesn’t mean it’s always working; in fact, particularly with non-surgical procedures, the fat might just be moved around, rather than destroyed.
Don’t worry, though, it’s not all bad news. We’re big on innovation here at the S-Thetics Clinic and have finally found a treatment that we think is worthy of smashing those body goals – without the risks that come from going under the knife.
Step in… EMSculpt.
This state-of-the-art treatment has just arrived in Europe, meaning we can now reduce fat and build muscle for our patients at the same time.
And we’re one of the first clinics in Europe to launch this innovative, clinically proven treatment.
The EMSculpt is all about body contouring, destroying fat cells to make those hard-to-reach areas firmer and creating more definition.
That means goodbye fat bulge and hello six-pack – the quick and easy way to that perfect stomach.
Using High-Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM®) technology, the EMSculpt penetrates through the skin to impact muscle tissue, increasing muscle density and volume.
Each treatment (completely pain free) is the equivalent to 20,000 muscle contractions, with four 30-minute treatments required in a two week period for optimal results.
It’s also the first FDA-approved treatment for the non-invasive butt lift – and you can read more about that in our previous blogs.
Results can vary depending on the person, but each patient will undergo a thorough, medical consultation before treatment.
