BENEFITS :

 

The effect of exercising in this heat raises one’s body temperature since the very beginning of the training session which means :

Weight loss: in each 30 min session, between 600 and 900 kcal are burnt, (depending on the morphology of the person and the exercises done), so encouraging fat-burning.

Body detox due to significant perspiration
results confirmed by the analysis of sweat show a composition of approximately 80% water and 20% toxins (including heavy metals toxics1). In comparison the perspiration analysed after a traditional work-out or a sauna session shows a composition of 97% water;

 Toning and muscle building;

 Performance improvement (highly trained athletes):                        Training in the heat (5 to 10 days2 between 37 and 42°C / 98 and 107°F) improves the physical level of performance of 4 to 8% both in hot and neutral environments3. Training in the heat also optimizes and increases the usual work-out load (cardio training, toning, stretching...) in shorter session than in a neutral environments.

Heat acclimation :                                                                                In preparation of international competitions in hot weather countries (10 training sessions4);

• Prophylaxis :                                                                                      Optimizes your sessions dedicated to injury prevention. Reduces the risk of muscle, ligament and tendon injury. Helps to prevent back injury.

 Physiotherapy, functional re-education and sports rehabilitation :      Accelerates post trauma or post injury recovery and return to fitness thanks to the IR long waves.

 Boosts muscular recovery (hot-cold alternating method).

Why 37°C TO 42°C ?

 

Because several recent scientific studies have shown that training in the heat improves performance. More over at this temperature, associated with a humidity level of 40% to 60%, one can still exercise aerobically breathing through the mouth or nose without discomfort. 

The cabin is heated with medically approved (CE 0297) infrared panels (IR-C long waves) similar to sunlight heat but without UV rays. The air does not dry out. The atmosphere stays healthy, soothing to allow the practise of sports.

-----

This specific infrared ray heats homogenously the human body at 80% while the air only at 20%.

The humidity level (adjustable with the ventilation grids) is crucial. Maintaining enough water in the air means the surface of the lungs are not irritated, so breathing remains comfortable and normal oxygenation of the blood is maintained.
