While we all know and love a traditional workouts, there are new technologies in the fitness world appearing in Lausanne that are making us approach our fitness sessions with a fresh perspective. Check out these three places in and around Lausanne that are providing innovative fitness solutions in 2022.
Recharge your fitness routine with Electrical Muscular Stimulation
EMS, or Electrical Muscle Stimulation, is a practice that provokes muscle contractions using electrical impulses placed strategically on your body. At Waaah, the idea is simple but the technology advanced; after getting a personalized analysis of your body composition as well as discussing personal goals with their team, you slip into an Electrostimulation suit and sweat it out in a HIIT workout (yes, while using EMS). The result? A short 30-minute session is the equivalent of 4 hours of conventional sport, plus you work 12 muscle groups at the same time while sparing your joints. Located in central Lausanne, near Bessières, their focus is on clients who don’t have a lot of time during the day but need effective and personalized workouts. With their maximum course group being only 4 people, it’s a friendly, familiar, and fast way to get results.
Step in and chill with Cryotherapy
If you’re looking to improve your immune system, expedite your recovery, increase the quality of your sleep, and bring some clarity to the brain fog that seems to settle in during adulthood, then you may want to try cryotherapy. A branch of physiotherapy popular amongst endurance athletes as well as treating rheumatoid arthritis and even prevention of dementia, it’s now available to anyone and everyone here in Lausanne via Hibernatus at TNCE. The process involves climbing into a futuristic pod or cryo chamber that goes up to your neck – then nitrogen and argon gas is released to create temperatures between -150°C to -180°C. Now, this is next-level in comparison with our cold-water swimming.
Ryffel Running at SportXX
Start your workout on the right foot with 3D foot analysis
You’ll never get more information about your feet, your stride, and your cadence than at Ryffel Running located in the SportXX stores in both Vevey and Crissier. This free service is guided by a professional analyst (who is usually an enthusiastic runner themselves) who leads you through a 3D foot analysis, and has expansive knowledge about foot formation, running postures, and the benefits of different shoe forms – all the way down to the specific textiles and materials used in the shoe. After going through a series of tests and a couple of questions, the computer system will propose several shoe options just for you, which you will have the chance to test out. Purchasing the shoes is not obligatory after the service, so feel free to book and try it out – no strings attached!
