Are you frustrated with trying to lose weight? You’ve stuck to your healthy eating plan and you exercise regularly but you’re not achieving results?

Want to know one of the coolest side benefits of Whole Body Cryotherapy? 
Whole Body weight loss! Coupled with Infrared Sauna these treatments can be a complete game changer for your weight loss efforts. 

During your Cryo session your body pumps blood to your core to increase your body heat, which increases your metabolic rate. Once you get out, that enriched blood rushes back out through your body, boosting immunity, cell renewal, healing everything in its path. This takes a lot of energy to heat back up and go through these processes. 500-800 calories of energy to be precise. That’s the equivalent of a 45 minute run. 

The process is called “non shivering thermogenesis” and it also turns our “white fat” into “brown fat”. White fat is is the standard fat that insultates us, and also leads to obesity and heart disease. Brown fat, takes up a much smaller space and is rich in iron and mitochondria. These mitochondria burn a lot of calories to create heat. A Dutch study concluded that because of this process, WBC may be an acceptable answer to the current obesity epidemic.

It gets better.  One of the biggest struggles people have (myself included) is cortisol. The stress hormone that we all produce too much of because we over work, over train and over stress constantly. This can put a huge roadblock in our efforts to lose weight. Regular Cryo sessions can help your nervous system chill out AND reduce your levels of cortisol. This also helps with fluid retention.

And if that’s not enough, we can’t forget the increase in motivation and energy people experience after their Cryotherapy sessions, which can very easily translate into more moving and training. 

If you really want to get the most out of it, spending some time in the infrared sauna can boost that calorie burn. With an average of 600 calories per hour, its a great way to keep that body burning hot even on your rest days. I recommend doing the Sauna before Cryotherapy for weight loss, to give your body the chance to work hard and warm itself up after the Cryo.
