FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS KATALYST?

Katalyst is a Full Body EMS (Electronic Muscle Stimulation) personal home training system for enhanced conditioning, cardio,  and recovery that provides better results with less wasted effort.

It will help you achieve your goals; whether in recreational sports performance, aesthetic development, or everyday fitness.

Unlike most other forms of strength training, it’s low impact, and won’t stress your joints.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Instead of using weights, cables or bands to provide resistance for your muscles to work against,  Katalyst  amplifies your natural ability to help you engage your muscles.

As you work out, pads in the suit mimic the bioelectric impulses your body uses to engage your muscles.

Your muscles tense and contract - just like they do when you lift a physical weight in the gym. You perform  bodyweight movements against this resistance.

And no, you can't just sit there while the suit does the work!

WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?

It's hard to put an unfamiliar feeling into words, but here goes...

At first you’ll experience a light “massaging” pressure. As you increase the intensity you'll begin to feel a real contraction in all your muscles as though you were flexing them in preparation for action.

Katalyst stimulates your muscles for 4 seconds, then lets them relax for 4 seconds. Before the end of your first session, you'll grow accustomed to this rhythm; even to look forward to it!

Don't take it from us. Here's what some of our early customers  say:

I could feel that it had activated muscles near to where my hip injury had been; muscles I've not been able to engage. It was as though I was bringing them back to life!

Nancy

It was really cool how I could feel my muscles
contracting without any movement!

Clara I

Having a workout that is 20 minutes and can target every muscle that would normally take multiple workouts to hit is absolutely incredible. My body has never hurt so good!

HOW EFFECTIVE IS IT?

The effects of Katalyst training have been proven by scientific research - but more importantly by experience. There are now more than 12,000 Full Body EMS studios in the world and the number is growing fast.

In controlled studies, EMS has been shown to:

  • Increase overall strength and endurance
  • Strengthen core and abdominals
  • Improve body composition (muscle mass) 
  • Increase muscle tone and definition
  • Improve posture, relieve back pain, and address muscular imbalances

WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?

Conditioning and strength training are just one of three key changes you need to be making when you decide to reduce body fat and improve body composition.

Healthy eating and increased activity level are also essential to achieve your goals.

If you're already following a weight-loss program, it’s essential that you strength train to hold on to (or even increase) the lean muscle you already have.

WILL I GET STRONGER?

Yes. Katalyst is a conditioning and strength program. Benefits may include:

Improved body composition, definition and toneImproved endurance and performanceImproved posture and balance

  • Improved body composition, definition and tone
  • Improved endurance and performance
  • Improved posture and balance

WILL I PUT ON MUSCLE OR GET BULKY?

You can develop a toned and athletic look, but Katalyst certainly isn't your best route to looking like a bodybuilder.
