Benefits of Working Out in a Heated Studio

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

It's no secret that High Intensity Interval Training is one of the most effective ways to both burn fat and build muscle. But adding in the element of heat takes work to new heights. The classes at Hot Phiit Greenwich are heated using state of the art FAR Infrared Technology. Exercising in a heated environment, like those offered at Hot Phiit Greenwich, offers a range of benefits that can significantly enhance your fitness and recovery. 

Increased Flexibility: Exercising in a heated environment can help improve flexibility by increasing blood flow to muscles and connective tissues. This can enhance your range of motion, allowing for deeper stretches and potentially reducing the risk of injury. This benefits goes well beyond the workout studios and can have a huge positive impact on your overall mobility and back health. 

Heightened Caloric Burn: Heat increases your heart rate and metabolism, leading to a higher calorie burn. So that means if you're counting calories in an effort to lose weight, Hot Phiit studios have the perfect workout for you. Hot HIIT workouts performed in a heated room can help you torch calories at a faster rate compared to traditional workouts. The increased intensity also enables an afterburn effect, where your body continues to burn calories post-exercise.

Detoxification: Sweating profusely during Hot HIIT workouts aids in the elimination of toxins from your body through your skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and one of the most important to regulating our everyday health. This process of sweating with a high heart rate can help deeply cleanse your body and skin, promoting a sense of rejuvenation and flushing out toxins.

Improved Cardiovascular Health: Studies have shown that a combination of weight training and cardio leads to improved cardiovascular health. Exercising in FAR Infrared heated studio challenges your heart and cardiovascular system, making it work harder to cool your body down. Over time, this can lead to improved cardiovascular endurance and a stronger heart through your everyday life. Improved heart also means better blood flow throughout your body, aiding in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscles.

Mental Toughness and Stress Relief: Enduring a challenging workout in a heated environment can also build mental resilience and toughness. When your body is tough, your mind can be tough as well. It teaches you to push through discomfort, which can translate to increased mental fortitude in other areas of life. Additionally, the release of endorphins during exercise helps reduce stress and improves mood.

Since you'll be sweating more in a heated environment, it's essential to drink plenty of water before, during, and after the workout.
