Top 5 Benefits of Using a Sauna Suit

Author: David Sautter NASM CPT

Saunas have been a part of various cultures for thousands of years with an emphasis on Nordic countries such as Finland. Although the practice and environment of a sauna has changed with the times, going from holes in the ground to clean, modernized rooms, the benefits remain the same. Spending time in a sauna can improve your overall quality of health but it can enhance a specific fitness goal such as body fat reduction or muscle building.

Kutting Weight offers you the latest in fitness technology with the sauna suit. A proven way to get all of the benefits of a sauna from the comfort of your home or gym. Let’s review the top 5 benefits you can get out of your sauna suit.

1.) Allows for Proper Detoxification

No matter how hard you may try not to come into contact with toxins, your body is surrounded by pollutants, pollen, and bacteria. As the sauna suit triggers a profuse sweating in the same manner that a real sauna does, your body is able to expel these toxins, leading to increased energy, better performance, and an overall improved sense of wellness. (“Sauna-Induced Sweating Offers Many Health Benefits.” 2011. Para. 4.)

2.) Doubles the Benefits of Exercise

Simply sitting in a sauna is considered a form of cardiovascular exercise. Your heart rate increases and, as mentioned above, you begin to sweat heavily. The Kutting Weight sauna suit brings this benefit to the next level as you wear it while working out. This increased intensity is ideal for enhanced cardiovascular workouts and muscular hypertrophy sessions. (“Health Benefits of a Sauna” 2014. Para. 5)

3.) Boosts Immunity

Regular use of a sauna has been proven to boost immunity, resulting in fewer colds. In recent studies, those who visited a sauna on a weekly basis had fewer colds than those that didn’t. The Kutting Weight sauna suit captures this same amazing benefit without the hassle of having to pay for a spa pass. A boost in immunity means less time away from work, vacations, and the gym. (“Regular sauna bathing and the incidence of common colds.” 1999. Para. 1)

4.) Enhance Post Workout Recovery

The sauna suit, just like a traditional sauna, can help with acute muscle soreness. The lactic acid buildup in your muscles is responsible for the soreness you feel following an intense workout. Persisting soreness can take away from future workouts, resulting in fewer reps, less sets, and inferior results. The sauna suit supports your body in removing this lactic acid buildup, resulting in a faster recovery and greater results. (“Sauna as a valuable clinical tool for cardiovascular, autoimmune, toxicant- induced and other chronic health problems.” 2011. Para. 1)

5.) Amplifies Your Metabolism

The Kutting Weight sauna suit, mimicking the effects of a real sauna, can help to increase your metabolic rate. Just as your heart rate increases while in a sauna, your metabolic rate follows suit. Worn on a regular basis, the sauna suit can help to increase your metabolism by up to 20%! An increase in your metabolism is necessary for burning calories and fat, resulting in an improved weight loss or cutting phase. (“Sauna as a valuable clinical tool for cardiovascular, autoimmune, toxicant- induced and other chronic health problems.” 2011. Para. 1)

CONCLUSION

The Kutting Weight sauna suit is a convenient method to reap all of the benefits of a real sauna while sitting at home or working out in the gym. Above all, be sure to listen to your body. You don’t want to push yourself past your breaking point, especially when it comes to raising your internal body temperature and processes. Used correctly, the sauna suit can host a number of amazing benefits.
