The Shock Therapy gym offers a twice-a-week 30-minute workout that helps people lose weight by shocking them during exercise workouts.
Gym-goers wear an electrode-studded bodysuit that uses Electronic Muscle-Stimulation Technology (EMS), notes WCBS.
Before a workout, the bodysuit is dampened to conduct electricity.
Mini-power packs on the bodysuit transmit tiny pulses of electricity that cause muscles all over the body to involuntarily contract.
While people are getting shocked they engage in strength-training and aerobics.
Shock Therapy’s founder Esra Çavuşoğlu told WCBS that the $50 session only lasts 30 minutes, but gets the job done:
That’s why we only suggest twice a week, so it will be equal to six days working out and take a day off to enjoy your family.
