ICE IN OUR VEINS- THE BENEFITS OF COLD WATER THERAPY

cold plunge lake ontario- CITY SHRED

The benefits of cold water therapy have been circulating recently. From fueling your willpower to increasing your white blood cell counts, cold water can improve your daily life. Ending your shower with a jolt of frigid water has proven health improvements.

Cold showers, and just being outdoors in the cold can aid in increasing metabolic rate directly, stimulating the generation of brown fat. Brown fat is a specific type of fat tissue that in turn generates energy by burning calories. Cold showers or lakeside plunges can be an effective tool for people looking to lose a few pounds. It’s science!

LAKESIDE ADVENTURES AWAIT- ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE PLUNGE?

Between the brisk breeze and icy water, it’s a bold move to rock a bikini for this outdoor adventure. But the sudden shock gives way to an inner warmth. From the time you enter the water to the time you exit, it’s all over in a flash. Surrounded by a likeminded collection of wellness seekers, the day offers guided breathwork and socializing with the CITY SHRED crew.

The groovy citizens of Othership will be leading the event, with support from Unbounded and Jaybird studios. You’ll need a mat, warm dry layers for after, and a warm beverage. Bring a few towels to dry off and if you have water shoes you should definitely bring them!

Get your tickets before they’re gone- you won’t want to miss this blissful entrance to winter acceptance.
