What Makes Infrared Saunas One Of The Most Popular Home Gym Room Ideas?

In recent times there has been a real shift from just focusing on physical health & wellbeing to taking a more holistic approach, focusing on both the body and mind. This is where infrared saunas come in!

Regular infrared sauna use has been shown to have many physical and mental health & wellbeing benefits making them an ideal home gym room idea. So, what are some of these benefits that make infrared saunas such a great home gym design idea?

Weight Loss

Infrared sauna sessions provide a gentle cardiovascular effect on the body which can help aid weight loss. Regular infrared sauna use has also been shown to lower stress hormones which can prevent fat storage and cravings. Because you can get thirsty during sauna sessions (it’s important to ensure you stay hydrated during your sessions!) many find their water intake increases which have also been shown to be beneficial when it comes to managing weight.

Infrared saunas also help to improve sleep. Sleep deprivation is known to increase the hormone ghrelin which makes us feel hungry and decrease the production of leptin, the hormone which makes us feel satisfied.

Top tip: follow your sauna session with a cold shower as this can activate cold shock proteins which may also help assimilate fat.

Sleep

As mentioned above, infrared saunas can help improve sleep. They do this by activating your parasympathetic nervous system (which takes us out of a stressful state helping us to relax). A good night’s sleep gives you more energy so you can take on the day and workout harder in your home gym.

Muscle Recovery

Infrared saunas are effective in aiding muscle recovery – another reason that makes them an ideal home gym room idea. Because infrared saunas can increase oxygen and blood flow into the muscles, this improves circulation, giving your body the chance to repair and rebuild. Better relaxation, better sleep and boosted energy levels can also help you in the recovery process.

Stress Management

If your mental wellbeing is not where it needs to be this can lower your energy levels, and your motivation to look after your body and can have negative physical impacts on your body too. Infrared saunas are great for helping you to relax, to switch off at the end of the day and are a great opportunity to meditate too – helping you to be a healthier and better you, inside and out.
