Every week, ILQ features a different Qatari startup in our ‘Startup of the Week’ segment. Qatar has some of the most creative, unique, and impactful startups in the region, and we cover them all across a variety of industries in Doha, from fashion and beauty, to food and dining, health, education, and more! 

This time, we're handing the reins to My 30 Minutes (M30M) -- Qatar's first and only fitness studio specializing in Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) training. Scientifically-proven to achieve more effective results in a shorter period of time, EMS allows you to target all of the muscle groups individually with the help and guidance of a M30M personal trainer who will adjust the impulse intensity according to your fitness level and training goals.

"As an EMS session is only 30 minutes long, with the actual training only being 20 minutes. It's very convenient for people whose work and/or family life doesn't give them the freedom to visit a gym on a regular basis," said M30M's trainer supervisor Tim Newnham.

"It's also a very low-impact form of training that can be effectively used by people with injuries who are unable to undertake conventional weight training."

Tim also shared their brief history: "We actually started in Doha over 2 years ago, but began very slowly, only operating a home-visit service for a small number of clients. We now operate 3 different studios around Doha while continuing our home-service for clients who don't have the time to travel to a gym."

By signing up at M30M, you can easily reap the unique benefits of EMS during an incredibly effective full-body workout, in only half an hour. M30M provides EMS fitness training and there’s no time to waste as you’re guided by a fully-qualified instructor who pushes you to the limit.

Highlighting the major effect of a client's lifestyle and diet on the outcome of practicing EMS, Tim mentioned that they don't guarantee any specific results, as every individual client progresses at their own pace. "But we do let them know that they will not see the desired effects, if they cannot control their negative eating habits," he continued.

Because EMS targets the muscles directly, it's more intense than conventional training and there's no limit to the percentage of muscle fibres being activated. One 20-minute full-body workout can train more than 90% of your muscle fibres at the same time during every contraction.

"M30M's EMS training is a very effective and convenient training method, with numerous positive benefits. We have three different studios based in West Bay and Abu Hamour, and people can get in contact for a free trial session to fully understand the training method," concluded Tim, who also cited that they didn't ask for help and assistance from either the Qatar Incubation Center (QBIC) or Digital Incubation Center (DIC) to establish M30M.

"We were actually brought over here by our local partner, so QBIC was not required."

Come and train in M30M's studio in Doha. Book your training today and enjoy the benefits of their EMS training session! To find out more about My 30 Minutes and to help support this unique startup, check out their details below!
