Pregnant, Pacemaker or Sick? ‒ When You Should Not Do an EMS Training!

Health & Fitness

Many people get scared when they hear that “current” flows through the body during EMS training. The word “current” actually gives the wrong impression because EMS training has no risks when used correctly (!) and is not harmful to the body. Nevertheless, there are some groups of people for whom EMS can be a risk and who should therefore better do without it.


You should never do an EMS training when … 


… you have a pacemaker

People with pacemakers shouldn’t do EMS. The electrical impulses could cause the pacemaker to malfunction or stop working. 

… you are pregnant 

During pregnancy, the risks of EMS training would be too high to participate. It would be better to wait until a few weeks after childbirth before training. After that, EMS is excellent for regression and body firming

… you are sick

If you have a cold, fever or a bacterial infection, you should also take a break and do without EMS training.


No EMS training when pregnant


For some illnesses, a doctor should be consulted to ensure that training is safe. 


This includes:


Also people with an implant or complaints with physical strain should consult their doctor first. Training under therapeutic supervision would then be possible under certain circumstances.

As with any intensive training, it must be ensured that EMS is only performed in good physical condition and without pain. This includes avoiding alcohol, drugs, other substances or exhausting stress in advance.


Basically, the following thesis applies:

Anyone who is healthy and able to do sports can also do EMS training without any risks!
