Have you ever heard of anyone detoxifying their skin and body, loosening up their muscles AND losing fat simultaneously all while sitting down?! There is only one place you can do all of that, and that is here at Hammer’s Gym in our very own Infrared Sauna!
We will start off with probably the most sought after benefit of them all, which is fat loss! As you sit in the infrared saunas heat, the energy penetrates your body at a much deeper level as opposed to regular steam saunas. This is radiant heat and is more effective because it warms you – not the surrounding air. Infrared waves vibrate at the same frequency as we do, which is why they are able to penetrate into the flesh and warm you up internally. Fat becomes water soluble at about 38°C, so it is at this infrared temperature that the fat begins to dissolve, move through the blood and finally is removed from the body, resulting in weight loss!
Unlike conventional saunas which pull sweat out of the body, Infrared energy penetrates up to 3 inches into the body and PUSHES sweat out of the body. As the body is heated from the inside, it forces toxins from under the skin out! This can in turn help purify your skin by eliminating toxins from your pores and increasing circulation, resulting in clearer, softer, and healthier-looking skin.
Have an injury? Countless studies have shown that infrared heat can induce heat shock proteins (HSPs). These proteins help reduce muscle atrophy (muscle breakdown) which can be the result of being immobilized for a prolonged period of time from an injury. So although you may be immobilized, you don’t have to be very mobile to sit in our sauna a few times a week to boost your HSPs! As well as HSPs, Infrared saunas also promote the increase of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) in our bodies which is vital for recovery and the building and repairing of muscle tissue!
These are just some of the many benefits of using our Infrared Sauna, but the best part is that you can use our sauna whenever you like, 24/7! So what are you waiting for? Come see our friendly staff here at Hammer’s Gym and sign up for a membership today!
