BENEFITS OF THE HEAT?

Benefits of a heated studio:

1. Assists weight loss

Exercising at the hot studio will ensure you work up a sweat! Your heart rate and metabolic rate increase, burning more calories and importantly improving your cardiovascular fitness and endurance

2. Better blood circulation

Increased body temperature and a quicker heartbeat means that your heart pumps blood faster to your body tissue. Better circulation = better blood flow. Thus muscles recover faster, and  more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to your tissues.

3. Sweat the toxins

There’s something about sweating it all out that feels so rejuvenating, and science has evidence to back it up. Sweating helps remove harmful toxins that reside in our bodies, like heavy metals and environmental pollutants. This release in toxins strengthens your immune systems and digestive system, so the gift keeps on giving.

4. Your muscles love it and better flexibility

Everyone in the fitness world stresses the importance of warming up and stretching before exercising. When you’re in the heated room, the heat loosens your muscles and warms up your body much faster. The heat greatly increases your flexibility in moves, and you’ll be less prone to injuries. This heat can heal aching muscles and joint pain by reducing inflammation and speeding up recovery process.

5. Great for your skin

The heated studio stimulates the production of collagen, which is the most abundant protein in the body. More collagen means less wrinkles, better skin tone and stronger skin elasticity. When you exercise in the heat, your skin will look healthier, softer, clearer, younger and more radiant.

6. Improves mood

Everyone seems to be looking to reduce stress levels and feel more Zen. Exercise, movement and the heat boosts our serotonin levels, which makes us feel happier. We also focus on mindfulness and breathing, listening to the body and increasing your lung capacity. Deep breathing calms the nervous system and the heat will add to your endorphin flow. You’ll leave the studio feeling amazing and well accomplished.

7. It's the X-Factor

It is EXTRA! The heat is an added challenge, it will make your heart pump way faster, because it needs to push more blood toward the skin in an effort to keep you feeling cool. Improving the cardiovascular system and upping the training intensity, mind and body. Train both, they both go hand in hand, strong body strong mind.
