Freeze the Fat Away!
The buzz around Cryotherapy continues to grow, and with it comes the commentary on the numerous benefits it can provide for your body. If you’ve googled Cryotherapy – then you’re probably aware of the recovery benefits it can provide for athletes. But what about us regular people? What about those of us who can’t devote our entire day to working out – but rather the mere 30 to 45 minutes we have free to jump on an elliptical and sweat out what we can?
You may not know it – but Cryotherapy can help boost your metabolism, which can aide in weight loss. So how does it work? How can Cryotherapy affect our waistlines?
When the body is exposed to extreme cold temperatures it increases the body’s metabolic rate to produce heat, and in turn helps burn anywhere from 500-800 calories in just a short 3 minute session! When coupled with physical activity, and more healthful nutrition, these numbers increase rapidly.
The chart above showcases the many different factors that play into weight loss. Anyone who has struggled and conquered their weight loss journey can tell you there is no magic pill, no quick and easy fix. It takes hard work, and dedication, and a plethora of information, and a little trial and error. Every body is different, and therefore every body will respond differently when factors of life vary.
The great thing about Cryotherapy for weight loss – is the many areas it can be a supportive benefactor.
METABOLISM: After multiple sessions, the accelerated metabolic effects last longer, resulting in a loss of 200-300 calories per day, burning 2 punds of body fat per month.* Regular use of a Whole Body Cryotherapy sauna will elevate and maintain a higher basal metabolic rate.
MOVEMENT AND EXERCISE: A Cryotherapy session helps to burn calories, which then enables a caloric deficit, which leads to a reduction in fat. It also helps improve blood circulation and increases muscle tone, resulting in a passive weight loss. It helps release endorphins which boost one’s mood and sharpen a person’s cognitive abilities.
SLEEP: Another huge factor in weight loss is sleep. Cryotherapy helps create extra oxygen in your bloodstream, which helps you body and brain to relax and have better night sleep. A night sleep that influences your weight loss. With stabilized sleeping patterns you’ll achieve a faster weight loss and feel reenergized to follow through you weight loss routine.
STRESS: Regular utilization of Cryotherapy helps to reduce the levels of cortisol in the body. When a person has an overproduction of cortisol (the stress hormone), it can impede their weight loss results by remaining stagnant, or even gaining weight due to stress.
It’s clear to see the many benefits a Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment can provide for weight loss. When combined with a steady workout plan and a balanced diet, it can help you burn extra calories in just a single 3-minute session.
