The Air is Awesome!

Posted November 11, 2016

There is a big difference in the environment of a typical hot exercise studio and the hot exercise environment in a HOTWORX sauna. The most important difference is the air!

Traditional hot yoga studios will attempt to recreate the climate of parts of India with 104 degrees fahrenheit and 40% humidity. While that might be a good re-creation of Indian climate, it is not necessarily the best environment for working out. Ironically, it is not really possible to recreate the outdoor climate of any region with old school hot air, or convection heating. Outdoor heat comes from the sun. The heat from the sun is infrared.

Infrared heat is far superior to traditional HV/AC heating because it is radiant and more natural.

I am amused sometimes when I visit hot yoga studios to try the workout and they are not able to tell me what type of heat they use. I was at a studio recently and asked the yoga experts at the front desk what type of heat they used for hot yoga…they looked at me like a deer in headlights! How can you provide hot exercise for clients without an understanding of the heat?! They were very friendly and the workout was good, but the heat was old school and loud, blowing out from the vents…not good.

Inside of a HOTWORX sauna you will have only radiant infrared heat and the heaters are totally quiet allowing you to focus on the instructions of the virtual trainer. The heat is very comfortable to the lungs.

Recently, HOTWORX was featured on an episode of The Doctors and on the show as they worked out in the sauna, one of the yoga professionals made the statement that, “the air is awesome!” Dr. Berman remarked that the environment of the infrared sauna was more motivating than traditional studios. The air is awesome because of the radiant infrared heat and it allows clients to train in 125 degrees with more effort in less time!

Consider providing HOTWORX for your clients and members. Give them radiant hot workouts with clean, low humidity air.
