FRANKLIN, Tenn. - What if you could get the same results you'd see after spending hours at a gym in just 15 minutes? A new studio in Middle Tennessee is promising that very thing.
Trainers at the Manduu Studio said spending hours at the gym is a waste of your time.
The new fitness studio just opened in Cool Springs, making it only the third of its kind in the country.
“I do have a medical background. I was a critical care nurse for over 25 years,” Wiley Robinson said.
Robinson is the Director of Operations for Manduu TN. He said this kind of high-intensity muscle stimulation is all about re-shaping your body and maintaining your overall health.
So how does it work? Robinson said it has to do with EMS or electrical muscle stimulation.
He said this type of EMS activates more than 90 percent of the body's muscle fibers in a single workout.
Participants wear special vests underneath the EMS suit, which is a lightweight antibacterial uniform that looks a lot like a scuba suit.
The suit is filled with electrodes and when they plug it in you feel it.
Mike Lincoln is on week seven of the program and said he's already seen results.
“I have in seven weeks. I’ll put on eight pounds of muscle, and the better part is, I’ve lost six pounds of fat,” Lincoln.
Manduu uses the only FDA approved EMS device in the U.S.
