Bodystreet launched in Germany in 2007, when founding partners Emma and Matthias Lehner opened their first micro-studio in Munich. The experience they created is the perfect alternative to large mainstream gyms and leisure centres. Users love the small studio environment, the personalised training programme and the fast results.
With no other form of workout promising to deliver visible body shape improvements in just 20 minutes a week, it is obvious that the demand for EMS-led exercise boomed. The team at Bodystreet created a slick and affordable franchise system, meaning new studios can be launched in just a few weeks – tapping into consumer demand and giving franchisees a quick route to the market.
Bodystreet: the revolutionary new way of shaping up.
Gone are the days of spending hours in the gym each week. Bodystreet is an innovative workout studio that combines expert personal training with the buzz of Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS). The result: a highly-effective exercise programme that enables you to get fit, tone up and build muscles – fast!
A full-body workout
During an EMS Training session at Bodystreet, your individual needs can be suited by a wide range of training parameters. However, an important difference to other forms of exercise is that Bodystreet is able to activate all of the muscle groups simultaneously. This makes a Bodystreet workout much more timeefficient than conventional strength training or gym sessions that typically only work a few muscle groups at a time. EMS Training has also a quick and deep-acting tightening effect on all the core muscle groups. That means you can achieve the same strengthening of low-lying muscle fibres that we would normally associate with Yoga or Pilates, without any of the time-consuming holding moves (e.g plank).
Who is it for?
This is a fitness concept that is targeted at anyone who is interested in staying fit, improving their body shape or relieving muscular aches, but does not have the time to spend hours exercising each week. This revolutionary system is so effective that one 20 minute workout a week is enough.
What makes Bodystreet so special?
It’s simple: we combine the best in electro muscle stimulation (EMS) technology with expert personal training, to help you get the results you want. This amazing fitness technology originated in the fields of sports medicine and it is a completely safe, stressfree and effective way of super-charging the natural effects of exercise.
Forget training alone in a large gym, working your way from one bit of equipment to the other several times a week. With Bodystreet, all it takes is 20 minutes a week, in a small ‘micro-studio’, under constant supervision from an expert personal trainer.
We use bespoke EMS technology to target all of the hard-to-reach muscle groups that are so difficult to workout through conventional exercise. This means you can expect to see rapid improvements in all of your ‘problem’ areas, such as the waist, hips, stomach, bottom, chest, arms and legs.
Leading the way: where did it all start?
Bodystreet is Europe’s leading provider of EMS Training, so you’re in safe hands. Bodystreet launched with a single micro-studio in Germany in 2007 and after two years of proving the concept, then expanded as a franchise system. Just after one year Bodystreet already had 43 locations, 180 staff members, 4,000 members and 16,000 personal training sessions per month. In 2014 the Bodystreet branch office in Salzburg opened and in 2016 the first Bodystreet studio opened in the United Kingdom.
Ambitious growth targets
Bodystreet has spent ten years building a successful micro-studio business, delivering EMS based training to over 36,000 people in 250 studios across Germany, Austria and UK every week. It is a business model that has been tried, tested and perfected! Bodystreet is a game-changer. Bodystreet has developed a master franchise concept, so it is possible to expand internationally into any country.
