A Better Way to Build Muscle

The last couple months of stay-at-home orders and the closing of non-essential businesses led to interesting effects on eCommerce. Not only were we shopping more online, but there was a noticeable change in what we were shopping for, according to a recent report from Stackline. One particular trend jumped out at us:

Weight training was one of the fastest growing eCommerce categories, as sales jumped 307 percent compared to March 2019. As a point of reference, sales of laundry supplies rose 200 percent, sales of yoga equipment increased 154 percent, and coffee sales rose 101 percent.

The message is clear: building strength was a huge priority during the quarantine. But just because the quarantine ended, the desire to cultivate muscle shouldn’t go away.

Here’s why strength training at Manduu is the perfect post-quarantine workout:

It’s Safer

Manduu offers a unique and proven Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) strength training program suitable for adults of all fitness levels and physical capabilities, as our clients will tell you.

So how does it work? Manduu’s EMS machine generates a mild electrical pulse that reaches nine major muscle groups.  Electricity creates the resistance, and by moving against the electricity, muscle is built.  Most of the movements involve stretching and flexing, with no jumping or bouncing. And because there are no heavy weights involved, nothing places strain on joints, tendons or ligaments. The ultra-low impact nature of a Manduu workout makes it the perfect muscle-building program for anyone for whom traditional weight lifting isn’t an option.

It’s Cleaner

In addition to the workout, Manduu studios are safer than the average gym.  Manduu studios have always employed stringent infection control standards, including the use of the most sophisticated air filtration system available today. This system uses ActivePure® technology to kill 99.9% of bacteria, viruses and mold in the air and on surfaces. In fact, it’s the same technology NASA uses.

Technical suits are sanitized after each use with a solution that kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, and workout clothing is sanitized to NSF Protocol P172 standards after every use. Our trainers are wearing masks, and we’ve built extra time into the studio schedule for thorough sanitizing throughout the day.

And at Manduu, your workout will always be private or semi-private.  With just you, your personal trainer, and at most one other person, you won’t be breathing the same air and touching the same equipment as dozens or hundreds of other people.

We’ve always gone above-and-beyond to ensure the health and safety of our clients.

It’s Faster

With a minimal commitment of only 15 minutes a week, Manduu maximizes your time while producing the results you’ve always wanted.

A Manduu session is far more efficient than traditional strength training.  The external electrical pulse reaches deeper into muscle tissue than your brain can send a signal, making one 15-minute Manduu session as effective as six hours in the gym.  While many people see great effects with just one workout a week, more frequent workouts yield better results. We recommend at least 72 hours between workouts to give your muscles time to rest and recover.

It’s Measurable

At each Manduu session you are encouraged to complete a scan on our InBody™ 770, one of the most sophisticated body composition measurement tools available today, and the same technology used by NASA and Navy Seals. The scan measures total body weight, skeletal muscle mass, visceral fat, basal metabolic rate, and many other biometrics to track your results and help you keep on track with your fitness goals.

If you want to build strength and muscle in the safest, cleanest and most efficient way possible, Manduu is the clear choice.  Get in, get fit and get out with Manduu.
