It's the latest fitness craze sweeping the city

Does the thought of rock hard abs and killer pins through just 20 mintues exercise three times a week sound appealing to you? Yeah, we thought so. Luckily the lovely people at new German fitness export My30Minutes are offering just that with their EMS-based PT classes. Health Ed Naomi popped down to give it a shot...

Located on Al Wasl Rd in Jumeirah 1, I'd been meaning to try out My30Minutes for a while and now I've finally got round to it, I'll definitely be going back! A cute little centre set up so that each client has their own personal training centre with shower and changing room, there's an air of luxury to this toning temple. Once you're in, the first step is to don a black lycra outift before being plugged into the Miha Bodytec - a machine that delivers electromuscular stimulation to your limbs. It's attached all over to your legs, arms, back, stomach, bum and waist so you truly get a 360 degree workout. You then go through simple, low-impact exercises such as squats and ski-lifts while tensing your muscles as hard as they can while being, well, shocked with electricity at the same time.

As it was my first time, I just had a trial session of 10 mintues while a full session lasts for 20, with a five minute warm up and a five minute warm down. Painful as it sounds, the sensation is strange but not uncomfortable and they say just 20 minutes of working out is the same as 2-4 hours exercise in the gym! Score! The next day i'm stiff but in a good way, like i've just gone and done a great workout. It's the perfect lazy girl's (i.e. me) guide to working out! Eat your heart out Kendall...
