So you definitely wouldn’t get through an airport in this get-up, but don’t let that put you off. The suit is part of the futuristic personal training with EMS (electric muscle stimulation), that is one part of Volo, which has been hailed as an ‘innovative hi-tech solution to body and health transformation’.
Founded by Roseanna Gorman, a nutritional therapist and personal trainer, with 20 years’ experience in the health and fitness industry, the system is available for the first time in Ireland, and involves just 20 minutes personal training a week, electrically enhanced workouts and 3D body composition scans, combined with nutrition and motivation coaching.
There is a lot of interest in the 40-plus age group, where commitment to hours in a busy gym, or complex low-calorie recipes has diminished. ‘Private one-to-one training to lose weight and build muscle, without a massive time-commitment, suits busy parents and professionals,’ Roseanna Gorman says of her new fitness regime.
Being a bit of a fitness fan myself (albeit one who indulged a little too much over Christmas), I had to give the EMS a go, and I can tell you, from the moment you are strapped into that suit, you feel like a bad ass.
