Fitness Innovation

NOVA Fitness Innovation is a burgeoning network of boutique fitness studios that raises the bar by combining cutting-edge technology and fitness. Nova customizes one-on-one personal training with Electrical Muscle Stimulation (“EMS”) to provide a streamlined, safe, and highly effective path to achieving and surpassing fitness goals. Founded by fitness entrepreneur and Certified Personal Trainer, Jackie Wilson, NOVA's EMS technology allows clients to reach up to 90% of muscle activation by targeting the entire body simultaneously. With roughly 40 micro-contractions per second, a conventional 60- minute workout can be accomplished in 30 minutes or less. NOVA has studios in Midtown Manhattan and Tribeca, with a combined 9,000 square footage of functional space.

NOVA's EMS technology is for those of all fitness levels. Our elite level trainers create proprietary training programs that deliver unprecedented results in shorter and more efficient periods of time. Nova’s one-on-one and small group training guarantees that you will have a unique workout experience that is tailored exactly to your needs.

Is NOVA for me?

Athletes such as eight-time Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt and Major League Baseball (MLB) Triple Crown Winner Miguel Cabrera have incorporated EMS technology in their workouts.

There are tremendous benefits to EMS training! Shorter bouts of exercise with nearly double the amount calories burned than conventional exercise. EMS increases blood flow, decreases muscle fatigue and soreness, and quicker metabolite removal. Other benefits include:

  • Aid in pain management
  • Reduced joint and back pain
  • Faster recovery time
  • Increased strength within 2-3 weeks
  • Increased exercise capacity
Additionally, a large segment of the population suffers from various physical, yet preventable, ailments that often limit individuals from exercise. NOVA's EMS technology enables people to improve function and achieve optimal movement for activities of daily living.

Regardless of whether you are new to working out or are a weekend warrior, NOVA Fitness Innovation will help you get to where you WANT to be!!
