I first heard about Gogo Muscle Training from a friend. He raved about this new technology that was such a great workout, so great that you only had to do it twice per week. Yep, that’s right, workout twice a week, that’s it. I was intrigued. He also said it was great for people with injuries and the best workout to focus on specific muscles.
The good people of Gogo came over to my house so I could discover what it was all about. They gave me a very thin cotton suit to wear and instructed me to not wear any underwear – things were beginning to get interesting…. Once I was dressed, uncomfortably shifting around in my almost sheer outfit (sans undergarments), they presented me with my Gogo suit. Looking like something out of a navy seal science project, complete with wires, straps and buckles, they strapped me in and hooked me up.
Gogo is an Electrical Muscle System that uses electric impulses to stimulate muscles. Combined with specific moves based on the HIIT method, your body is worked in such a way that maximizes output with intense short periods of effort. In your session a trained instructor guides you through your workout cuing you, making sure you’re on track.
The reason for the very thin clothing is that the suit must be as close to your body as possible. The suit is sprayed with water as a conductor but don’t worry, this isn’t electro shock therapy. Swear!
From the first move I felt immediately why this workout is different. You can feel your muscles engage in a way you could only wish when working out on your own. Though not painful, the feeling is intense and gets you going right away. Within 5 minutes I was sweating and once the workout was done I was completely spent. Twenty minutes and I was done!
This type of training used to be reserved only for the world’s elite athletes who couldn’t risk injury or whom had injury’s that stopped them from working out using traditional methods. I have pins in my hip and have been told for years to strengthen the area around my hip, but it’s incredibly difficult because I usually end up aggravating my injury. I told this to my Gogo instructor and she was able to stimulate the areas without any pain.
