Working out is a great way to improve your health, wellness, and your fitness. While many people think that going to the gym is good enough, there are those who are always striving to do more for their bodies. At Inner Strength Asheville, we provide you with a new, innovative way to improve your fitness with our ARX machine. This fitness machine uses adaptive resistance, meaning that every rep that you do is at the highest level of intensity that you can handle. If you’re looking to take your workout to the next level, we also have an infrared sauna that will provide you with numerous health benefits. If you want to learn more about our sauna and our ARX machine, contact Inner Strength Asheville to schedule your appointment today!

In part one of this multi-part series, we went over some of the basics for our infrared sauna. In part two, we will continue to discuss more about the sauna so that you have a better understanding of how this sauna has a positive effect on your health and wellness. Once you’ve finished reading, if you’re curious about how the sauna can work for you, contact Inner Strength Asheville!

Determine Your Goal

While many people choose to use the sauna because the warmth is a relaxing way to end their workout, the true purpose of using an infrared sauna is to help your body detox. Because of this amazing health benefit, it’s a good idea to start by determining what you want to get out of your infrared sauna experience. If you’re looking to get the most out of your sauna experience, we also highly recommend combining sauna usage with exercise, massage, or another health and wellness practice.

Using the sauna every so often will still provide you with benefits, however, you will see better results that last longer when you use the sauna on a regular basis. Using an infrared sauna regularly is especially beneficial for those who suffer from chronic pain, are undergoing weight loss, or those who live a stressful lifestyle.

Spread Out Your Time

If you are a first-time sauna user, don’t be surprised if you can’t handle the heat for a very long period of time. In fact, it’s recommended that you start slowly and work up to longer periods of time spent in the infrared sauna. For example, during the first few weeks, you should only stay in the sauna for about 20 to 30 minutes at a time. As you become more used to the heat of the sauna, you can gradually increase your time.

What To Do While Using The Sauna

In this blog, we’ve mostly talked about all the benefits that you can receive while using an infrared sauna. But, what do you do while you’re actually using it? Ideally, during your sauna session, you should move around every few minutes to expose different parts of your body to the infrared light. That being said, your sauna experience is up to you. Whether you feel like sitting, lying down, or even practicing your meditations, it’s up to you!

At Inner Strength Asheville, we want to help you get the most out of your workout experience. Using our innovative ARX machine combined with a session in our infrared sauna will leave you feeling great! We offer a variety of subscription plans for both our ARX and the infrared sauna.
