Burning calories consistently proves to be tough in a world where we mainly live a sedentary lifestyle. Going to the gym or jogging around your neighborhood are excellent ways to burn calories, but require an extensive amount of mental energy.
Life is all about alternatives and the infrared sauna provides you with the easiest alternative to burn calories quick.
What is an infrared sauna and how is it different than a traditional sauna?
Your traditional saunas at the gym work very simply. They heat up the air around you to increase your body temperature. An increased body temperature triggers your body to keep itself cool. We call that sweating.
Infrared saunas use a slightly different technology to increase your body temperature. They use natural infrared heat which is able to penetrate your skin to directly heat up your body temperature. This allows you to achieve a deeper sweat at a much lower sauna temperature.
Typically, traditional saunas are around 180-195 degrees. A lot of people find this temperature to be borderline unbearable. Infrared saunas sit at a comfortable 140-155 degrees while providing seven times more benefits!
How do I burn calories in an infrared sauna?
Because infrared saunas are able to heat up your body temperature, this causes a lot of metabolic processes to kick into high gear. A 40 minute session increases your heart rate and stimulates your endocrine system to burn calories and fat.
The average person will find that a single session burns 500-800 calories! All while not even moving a muscle. Just sit still and allow the infrared heat to do the work for you.
The infrared sauna is the perfect tool to add to your arsenal if you are looking to begin your fitness journey or already many years deep into it.
What else can the infrared sauna do?
Burning calories is not the only benefit from sitting in the sauna. Many people are unaware that consistent sauna use can lead to a more efficient immune system, improved muscle recovery, and an overall better sense of wellbeing.
