The hottest new way to stay fit and shed pounds is ice c-c-c-cold.
Athletes are fans of the Cryosauna for sports injuries.
Stepping into the narrow, shoulder-high Cryosauna chamber at Orange Cryo Wellness with nothing more than a bikini and a special pair of gloves and socks on, you wonder how you’ll survive the -250 Fahrenheit nitrogen chill for three long minutes. The time goes much faster if you focus on the health perks enumerated by the specialist who monitors the treatment: reduced pain and inflammation, weight loss (a single session can burn up to 800 calories!), and overall mood-boosting courtesy of constricted blood vessels from the extreme cold.
It’s no surprise, then, that the world’s most famous athletes and celebrities—LeBron James, Usain Bolt, and Jennifer Aniston, to name a few—are fans of this frozen fountain of youth. Orange Cryo owner and Philly resident Robin Gupta discovered cryotherapy during a motivational seminar with Tony Robbins (also a fan) and decided to introduce the concept to his hometown.
“I wanted to bring what the stars and elite athletes have had access to for maintaining their vitality and health to the general public,” says Gupta. After your full-body freeze, stick around for the six-minute Cryofacial to boost collagen production. Trust us, your body will recover quickly from the sub-zero blast, but a hot cup of tea right after isn’t a bad idea. 444 N. Fourth St., 267-519-0028
