TAMPA, Fla. – One Tampa gym claims it has new technology that can shorten a whole-body workout in just 20 minutes.
Mireille Fernandez loves to exercise and recently decided to try a new fitness routine called EMS or electro muscle stimulation.
“After that one session, I can see it in my physique and I feel more energy,” Fernandez said.
Tummo Studios within Tampa’s Powerhouse Gym recently began offering the technology. It claims to be able to reduce the amount of working hours to just 20 minutes.
“The way this suit is designed it’s a closed circuit of electricity that activates 92% of the body’s skeletal muscle and then you work against that resistance which is actually 10 times your results,” says owner of Tummo Studios Joe Palano.
There is a tingling sensation felt by the user that can be raised or lowered.
“People are always worried the first time, it will hurt or feel like a Taser. It’s never. Most people crush their first session and say next time I’ll do more,” he said. Palano.

Palano said it’s perfect for all types of training, from athletes to weekend fighters with no time to spend in the gym. He also said it is easier on the joints, which makes it great for the elderly.
Fernandez plans to combine this with his normal workout routine.
“Don’t get me wrong, I did both, but I feel like it gave me faster results in a shorter period of time,” Fernandez said.
So, whether you’re an old school lifter or someone looking to be up to date, EMS training can be for you. At the very least, you get an idea of what it feels like to be Tony Stark.
