Weight-loss regimens can be rewarding and renewing—but for most, at one point or another, they’re frustrating. You may have put a lot of effort into eating healthily, and a lot of time into your new cardio routine, but the stubborn pounds will simply not budge. You need a boost—something new that will give you an edge to overcome this weight-loss plateau.
Everyone talking about Cryotherapy!
A cryotherapy chamber reaches -140 degrees Celsius, or -284 degrees Fahrenheit. Using very—very—low temperatures, cryotherapy can reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation, facilitate regeneration of healthy cells, reverse muscle damage, boost metabolism, and even reverse aging.
Professional athletes and celebrities swear by it. Kobe Bryant, Cristiano Ronaldo, Demi Moore, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston, and Mandy Moore can all attest to its curing properties and superpower abilities. Mandy Moore even said she was “obsessed” after a cryotherapy treatment (https://www.instagram.com/p/ydIej1jXSy/?modal=true&utm_source=partner&utm_medium=embed&utm_campaign=photo). Hugh Jackman recently posted a short video of himself dancing inside a cryotherapy chamber in -211 degree Fahrenheit conditions (https://www.instagram.com/p/BVFC8khDl5y/?tagged=cryotherapy).
The Cryotherapy Cure
So, here’s how it works. You step into a cryotherapy chamber (where your neck and head are above the chamber, thus spared the low temperatures), and your body is sprayed with a light mist of nitrogen to lower the temperature even further. Then your body kicks into high-gear—into survival mode—and furiously pumps blood to your core organs, increasing your body temperature. All that blood in your core becomes oxygenated, and rushes back out to the rest of your body, repairing any damage it might have.
All that action going on inside your body increases your metabolic rate, burning up to 800 calories per 3-minute session and immediately following. You metabolism will be increased for up to 24 hours following the cryotherapy treatment.
Burns Calories while you relax!
One 3-minute cryotherapy session is equivalent to an hour-long run on the treadmill—only, effects last longer. It is a perfect way to burn calories, shed fat, boost metabolism, and flush out toxins. People have even reported finally ridding their bodies of stubborn cellulite that had been present for years before they started cryotherapy.
Not only that, but cryotherapy will make your other workouts much more effective. It’s anti-inflammatory and pain-managing components will allow you to push harder—and for longer—in your next cardio session, achieving maximum results.
If you’re frustrated about those few extra pounds, and your body could use a nudge, cryotherapy along with a healthy diet and exercise may be just what you need. This fat-blasting method is sure to burn you a few hundred calories in no time at all (or, 3 minutes, to be exact).
