ICE, ICE BABY!
WHO KNEW THAT WITHSTANDING SUB-ZERO TEMPS WOULD BECOME MIAMI’S HOTTEST WELLNESS TREND? WITH A HOST OF INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL BODY BENEFITS, THERE ARE PLENTY OF REASONS TO GIVE CRYO A TRY IN THE 305.
Getting a Miami Beach bod without hitting the gym or cutting carbs sounds too good to be true. But Cryobody Spa’s popular Whole Body Cyrosauna is making it happen: The system shocks the outer layer of the skin by exposing it to extremely cold temperatures (-200 degrees), kicking your metabolism into high gear—that means you’ll be burning extra calories all day long. 5701 Sunset Dr., South Miami, 305-665-5688; cryobodyspa.com
Cryo Miami’s frigid facial (also referred to as freeze therapy) is a quick and painless 12-minute treatment that will leave you glowing like a glacier. How does it work? Vaporized liquid nitrogen takes your skin to almost freezing, tightening the microcirculation in the bloodstream. Translation: You’re fighting off wrinkles while firming up and smoothing out your skin… just in time for gala season. 430 S. Dixie Hwy., Coral Gables, 305-770-6670; cryo-miami.com
Trainer to A-list athletes David Alexander and his DBC Fitness (short for Dumbbells, Barbells, and Cables) have revolutionized strength training. But to train like an athlete, you need to recover like one, too. With DBC’S whole-body cryotherapy (LEFT, DBC’S Cryotherapy chamber), signals that stimulate healing are sent to the brain, so your body begins to rapidly reduce inflammation while relieving sore muscles and joints. You don’t even need an appointment—just walk in and chill out. You might even run into Dwyane Wade when he’s in town. 3841 NE Second Ave., Miami, 786-452-8964; dbcfitness.com
