Why do I need it?

What are the top benefits of doing Cold Plunge?

There are a multitude of benefits you can experience from cold water immersion. Here are our favorites!

Improved circulation: Cold plunges can help improve blood circulation by constricting blood vessels.

Reduced inflammation: Cold therapy has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body, which can help alleviate muscle soreness, joint pain, and other inflammatory conditions.

Enhanced recovery: Cold plunges are commonly used by athletes and fitness enthusiasts to aid in post-workout recovery.

Increased mental alertness: Cold exposure activates the sympathetic nervous system, leading to increased alertness and mental clarity.

Boosted immune system: Cold exposure has been shown to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which play a crucial role in fighting off infections and strengthening the immune system.

Increased calorie burning: Cold exposure activates brown adipose tissue, which is responsible for burning calories to generate heat.

Enhanced resilience and mental toughness: Cold plunges can be mentally challenging and require discipline to overcome the discomfort.

My First Visit

What Should I Expect?

Your first time using the cold plunge at CryoFit Alamo Heights will be memorable as one of our team members will help you reach the goal of submerging yourself up to your neck in cold water for 2 minutes and up to 5 minutes. We’ll do some light breath work with you and talk you through the experience which helps tremendously in navigating your first session. The water will be around 45 degrees and we’ll have plenty of towels for you to use afterwards. After your first session with us, you can always ask us to be there with you to help with your session or feel free to plunge on your own with 100% privacy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does your cold plunge stay clean?

CryoFit Alamo Heights uses a RENU Therapy cold plunge that uses a 4-Part Purification System. Ozone, or energetic oxygen, is a powerful oxidizer, combined with a 10″ Filter System, surface Dirt and Oil Remover Buoy, and a Spa Sanitizer Mineral Stick that uses silver ions to destroy bacteria and algae. In addition to the 4-Part Purification System, CryoFit Alamo Heights replaces the water regularly to go above and beyond this comprehensive system.

Is there a maximum size for using the cold plunge?

CryoFit Alamo Heights’ cold plunge has a deep tank that makes it perfect for most shapes and sizes up to about 6’7″ and 280 lbs. We have a wood step to make entry and exit easier for people of all sizes. Other cold plunge tanks are too low to the ground and not deep enough. A shallow cold tank limits the cold therapy experience.

What do I need to wear?

CryoFit Alamo Heights requires that all clients wear a bathing suit inside the cold plunge. We’ll have plenty of towels available to help you transition and dry off afterwards. There are also small plastic bags to put your swimsuit in afterwards.
