In the event of non-compliance, the manufacturer accepts no liability for any resulting damage.

Meaning and function

Training using electromuscle stimulation (electromyostimulation), also known as EMS training, is based on the targeted activation of striated muscles using electrical impulses. This simulates natural muscle activation. This activation causes the muscle fibers to contract without receiving a signal from the central nervous system (CNS). Normally, the commands for a contraction come from the brain. During physical exertion, these electrical impulses are sent to the muscles via nerves. Because the impulses in EMS training are so similar to the CNS impulses, the muscle cannot distinguish the origin and a contraction occurs, i.e. the contraction command to the muscle comes via the electrodes incorporated in the eaglefit® EMS PANTS. During the EMS application, rhythmic stimuli or impulses act on the muscles to be trained, resulting in targeted tension and relaxation. In physiotherapy, only individual muscles or muscle groups are usually trained using electrical stimuli, without performing any additional movements or fitness exercises.

While no movements are performed in addition to the electrical muscle stimulation, full-body EMS training is combined with targeted exercises. In this way, you also train your coordination and the increase in strength can be translated into targeted movement. In addition, the holistic training strengthens the agonists, antagonists and stabilization muscles, which are difficult to reach and influence with conventional training. This prevents muscular imbalances, which can occur with one-sided training of individual large muscle groups.

Furthermore, the simultaneous muscle activation can prevent or train away postural restraint, which avoids incorrect loading. Thanks to the possibility of incorporating additional exercises during EMS training, intra- and inter-muscular coordination and motor skills can be improved. Another positive effect of the additional exercises is the adaptation of the tendons, ligaments and joints to the increase in muscle strength achieved. As no heavy weights are required for muscle contraction, this form of whole-body training is very easy on the joints.

Another advantage is the time saved compared to conventional forms of training:

  • only 20-60 minutes a week are enough

Positive effects of EMS training

  • Reduction in waist and abdominal circumference
  • Loss of body fat
  • Increase endurance and performance
  • Reduction of back pain possible
  • Improving endurance during back strain in everyday situations
  • 15-20 minutes of EMS training burns approx. 400-500 kcal with appropriate intensity and execution of the exercises
  • Increase in maximum performance (movement speed + strength)

Specific effects of EMS training
EMS and exercise

  • In contrast to the static method, dynamic muscle work leads to improved blood flow and circulation of the lymphatic fluid
  • Physical activity improves the tensile strength of the tendons and the supply of joint cartilage
  • Tendons, ligaments and joint cartilage are strengthened, mineral content and bone circumference increase
  • Eccentric strength training in particular affects the connective tissue (tendons and ligaments)
  • Tendon and ligament damage can be repaired more quickly through targeted activity
  • These changes make the body more resistant and protect it from injury

EMS and functional training

  • Training the whole body (muscles, tendons, ligaments)
  • The focus is on learning and performing the movement
  • Based on stabilizing the body and especially the core muscles
  • Can be supported with different training equipment (e.g. sling trainer, balance pad, kettlebell, exercise ball)

EMS and sling training

  • Exercises for the whole body and isolation exercises for individual muscles
  • The load intensity can be easily varied by adjusting the angle to the anchorage point of the sling trainer
  • Stabilizer training using unstable grip ropes, which is further intensified by a pulley
  • High exercise variance thanks to the pulley
  • Low space requirement
  • Easy assembly and disassembly

EMS and outdoor training

  • The focus is on training and outdoor exercise
  • Exercises for the whole body
  • The intensity of the exercises is varied using your own body weight, the shape of the terrain or everyday objects
  • Additional psychological effects of outdoor training
  • Motivation through variety

Whole-body EMS training offers the opportunity to train in a highly effective and time-efficient manner. It is therefore a very good way to increase strength, build muscle and reduce fat. It can generate higher stimulus intensities than conventional training methods.

For these reasons, some important conditions must be observed during training.

Training preparation

  • Whole-body EMS training can only be carried out if you are in an appropriate physical condition
  • It is important to replenish your carbohydrate stores before training, as the high metabolic load results from the very large muscle mass involved
  • You should also make sure you drink plenty of fluids before, during and after training

Training course

  • You should never overload yourself in the first few training sessions. The training should be carried out with a reduced training time (approx. 12-15 minutes) and an appropriate intensity. Subsequently, the training time should be continuously increased to 20 minutes
  • In the first 8-10 weeks, a training interval of at least 4 days should be maintained. This is the only way to ensure regeneration and positive adaptation
  • Generally avoid training at too high an intensity

First use of the EMS PANTS POWERBox and the app

Charging the EMS PANTS POWERBox

Before you can start training, please download and install the eaglefit® EMS System app from your app store by searching for “eaglefit®” or “eaglefit® EMS System”.

Before using the EMS PANTS POWERBox for the first time, you must charge the battery for at least 3 hours. Our batteries have overcharge protection so that you cannot “overcharge” them. Use the supplied USB cable and the 220 V mains adapter for charging. During charging, the EMS PANTS POWERBox indicator lights up blue. When the battery is fully charged, the indicator lights up green.

First start
When you start the app, you can initially choose between the EMS BELT, the EMS PANTS, the HOME EMS suit and the PRO EMS suit. If you are using the app for the first time, create a profile for the training. You can save all your settings later under “Select profile”.

If you have already created profiles, these will be displayed. Select an already saved profile or add a new profile, under which you can save the settings (pulse strength per muscle, etc.).

After pressing “Confirm”, you will be taken to the training interface with the preset settings of the profile highlighted in green. Changes are also saved there if you leave this page later with the button .

First of all, please establish the Bluetooth connection to the EMS PANTS POWERBox. Switch on the charged EMS PANTS POWERBox (place a finger on the recess for approx. 2 seconds) and search for it via “Bluetooth” in the top right-hand corner by clicking on “SCAN” in the next window. After selecting your EMS PANTS POWERBox (e.g. “eagle_pants000”), you will return to this view.

In the training interface, you can set the strength of the individual electrode pairs, switch individual electrodes on/off and access the menu for parameters using the menu symboln at the bottom left. To start training, please press the start button .

Explanation of the app

The app is designed so that you can create as many profiles as you like on each end device. All settings and parameters of a pulse type (fitness/metabolism/relaxation/individual/fat burning/HIIT/fast strength) are saved in a profile. Assign a suitable name to each profile.

The name can be “Relax1” or “Muscle building”, for example. Your data is only stored on your end device in accordance with the GDPR. You must therefore create separate profiles on your iPhone and iPad, for example. The app saves the last settings used under the logged-in profile as soon as you leave the training interface with the button .


Communication between the app and your EMS PANTS POWERBox is established when a Bluetooth connection is established.

To establish the Bluetooth connection, please tap on “Bluetooth” at the top right when using the device for the first time.
In the following view, select “Scan”.

You will receive a list of the Bluetooth devices available in the vicinity.

Requirements for a Bluetooth connection

  • The EMS PANTS POWERBox must be charged and switched on. You can recognize this by the green/blue LED lighting up brightly
  • Switch on the EMS PANTS POWERBox by pressing the button (a slight indentation in the middle) for 2 seconds. The LED goes on
  • Your location must be shared with the app so that the Bluetooth signal can be processed correctly
  • You will NOT find the EMS PANTS POWERBox via your usual Bluetooth settings in your cell phone, as we use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)

Navigation and settings of the EMS pulses

Setting options under “Parameters”

The parameters are already stored with start settings. If you click on + or -, you can change the parameters highlighted in black.
The following programs (“modes”) are already pre-installed on the eaglefit® EMS system app:


Please select the “4/2” setting, i.e. a pulse duration of 4 seconds and a 2 second break. Ideally, you should tense your muscles for 4 seconds and relax them for 2 seconds during training.

The fitness program is ideal for building up the large-volume white skeletal muscles. It is best trained with 5-12 repetitions per muscle group at approx. 80% of maximum strength. The impulses are applied to the respective muscle group at a frequency of 85 Hz without placing high training weights on the joints, ligaments or tendons. The pulse depth in this program is 350 µs.

Fitness training should be combined with exercises and can be supported well with sling training, HIIT training or our core and beginner training on YouTube, for example.


Please select a pause time of 0 seconds for continuous pulse. How the pulse duration is set is then irrelevant.

The metabolic program, which trains the red endurance muscles, can be used specifically for muscle toning. The activation of the slow-twitch muscle tissue reduces fat and increases the definition of the muscle. The training frequency is 7 Hz with a pulse depth of 350 µs.

This program is ideal for warming up and improving circulation and metabolism. Metabolic training should ideally be combined with endurance exercises such as:

  • Nordic Walking
  • Jogging
  • Cycling
  • Exercises on cardio equipment


Please select the “1/1” setting, i.e. a pulse duration and a pause of 1 second each.

This program generates gentle muscle twitches and ensures muscle recovery, faster regeneration and is also used for functional recovery after illness. At a training frequency of 100 Hz and a pulse depth of 150 µs, tension is released and the muscles are supplied with nutrients.

You can use the relaxation program for 5-10 minutes after an intensive workout (with or without EMS) or after a strenuous day for 10-30 minutes at a moderate intensity, for example simply on the sofa.


Select the settings individually according to your preferences or according to therapeutic recommendations.
Advanced users can freely set all parameters (pulse frequency, pulse depth, pulse duration, pause and training duration) with this program. A frequency of 1-120 Hz and a pulse depth of 50 – 400 µs are possible.


With this program, you can use the illustrated body to complete a preset workout and do the exercises directly, or you can use it as a placeholder for your own individual workout. The special feature is that you can select a different frequency and pulse depth for each workout. Simply hold your finger over the desired exercise for 2-3 seconds until the preview image rises, then you can drag it into the row below and arrange it. You can also remove exercises from the row in the same way.

You can use this function ideally to take part in many of the workouts offered on YouTube. The pulse duration of 30 seconds and 15 seconds pause is often used for group circuit training. The training frequency is 85 Hz with a pulse depth of 350 µs.

Fat Burning

Please select the setting of “4 / 2”, i.e. a pulse duration of 4 seconds and a pause of 2 seconds. In this special program you combine the benefits of the fitness and metabolic program. During the active phase you train at 60 Hz for maximum strength and in the passive phase (pause phase) the endurance muscles are stressed at 7 Hz. This allows you to work both muscle fiber types in one program.

Pulse depth

With “Pulse depth”, you can set how long the pulse that you have set under “Frequency” lasts. This value can only be configured in the “Individual” parameter. A single current pulse can last 50-400 µs.

The higher this value is set, the deeper the pulse goes into the muscle. For example, you can optimally address large muscles such as the thigh muscles, the gluteal muscles or the back muscles with a pulse depth of 350 µs.

Pulse duration

Duration of the pulse in seconds (symbolized by a green number that runs backwards during training).


Length of the break during training, 1-30 seconds (symbolized by a red number that runs backwards).


Duration of a training session; 1-40 minutes.


The number of impulses during one second. For example, in the “Fitness” training program, the muscles are tensed and relaxed 85 times per second.

Dressing and undressing

of the eaglefit® EMS PANTS.

The eaglefit® EMS PANTS are available in sizes XS to XL. It is important to choose the right size so that the electrodes fit close to the body. The EMS PANTS are put on directly on the bare skin, without underwear or other (sports) clothing. The electrodes do not need to be wet, they should be placed directly on the muscles to be stimulated. The close contact with the skin ensures optimum transmission of the current to the muscle.

A wafer-thin film of moisture is required so that the electrodes in the PANTS can transmit the energy to your nerves and muscles via your skin. For some people it is enough to wear the pants for 2-3 minutes, others have to do jumping jacks, burpees or sit-ups for 5 minutes before the strength of the impulses can be increased. If the moisture film is missing, you may experience an unpleasant, slight stinging sensation on the surface of the skin. In this case, reduce the pulse strength on this muscle group and do a few more jumping jacks or squats before increasing the intensity. If you have a lot of body hair or very dry skin, the stimulation may be impaired. In this case, you can lightly moisten the skin in the relevant areas with a cloth or use our electrode gel.

The eaglefit® EMS PANTS should ideally be turned inside out to put them on. Step into the eaglefit® EMS PANTS with your feet and roll them upwards above your knees so that the electrodes are already in the correct position on your body. After training, roll the eaglefit® EMS PANTS away from the body from top to bottom so that they are turned inside out again.

Always take care to avoid pulling hard on the EMS PANTS when putting them on, wearing them or taking them off, as this could damage the cable connections.

The training/exercises

As a general rule: if you feel unwell, stop training immediately and consult a doctor if necessary. Never train if you do not feel well or are ill.

Training must also be interrupted in the event of problems or faults with the eaglefit® EMS PANTS system. Contact the manufacturer in the event of technical faults.

1. Warm up
Before EMS training – as before any fitness training – the muscles should be prepared for the upcoming exercise. A warm-up has the following effects:

  • The conductivity between electrodes and skin increases with light perspiration
  • Increase in core body temperature
  • Improvement of the energy supply processes in the muscle
  • Increased production of synovial fluid
  • Increase motivation and focus on the upcoming training session

We recommend a short endurance session to warm up, for example a few jumping jacks, burpees or 3-5 minutes on the bicycle ergometer.

2. Training/exercises

In general, you can use the eaglefit® EMS PANTS to perform all movements and workouts both indoors and outdoors in dry weather. There are no limits to your imagination. Jogging, boxing, yoga, sling training, functional training, HIIT or training with your own body weight. Only wet conditions (e.g. rain) should be avoided with the suit.

The eaglefit® EMS PANTS come with an exercise poster that shows possible exercises for the whole body using your own body weight.

3. Stretching

StretchingAfter the exercise session, you should stretch – possibly in combination with the “Relaxation” program.

Stretching has the following effects:

  • Reduction of muscle tone
  • Improved breakdown of metabolic products
  • Improved muscle regeneration
  • Promotes mobility – also of joints, tendons and ligaments

Washing and hygiene instructions

Before you wash the eaglefit® EMS PANTS, please remove the EMS PANTS POWERBox.

Proceed as follows:

1. Open Velcro fastener

2. Pull the POWERBox upwards

Please only clean the EMS PANTS POWERBox with a soft cloth.

We recommend hand washing the eaglefit® EMS PANTS. Alternatively, you can wash the pants in a laundry net in the washing machine on a delicate cycle at 30 °C. Close the zipper and all Velcro fasteners beforehand.

We recommend using a mild washing powder (e.g. ECOVER or Frosch Color). Never use corrosive solvents/scouring agents, disinfectants or detergents with additives such as chlorine or bleach. If the trousers are still too wet after washing, you can spin them on the spin program at max. 400 rpm. To dry, simply hang the trousers on a hanger and allow them to air dry – preferably with the electrode pairs facing outwards. Never dry the eaglefit® EMS PANTS in a tumble dryer and never expose them to direct UV radiation. This can damage the material.

The following washing symbols can be found in the eaglefit® EMS PANTS and should be observed:
