Cold sweat

In the Moment - - Good News -

Move over hot yoga – there’s a cool new way of ex­er­cis­ing on the scene. Pulling on your ac­tivewear and head­ing out­side to get sweaty may not be your rst in­stinct when tem­per­a­tures drop, but it could be a much more ef­fec­tive way to ex­er­cise. Stud­ies have shown that cold work­outs can make our hearts stronger, make us burn calories more quickly, and help our mus­cles re­cover faster.

But there are not just bene ts for the body; the mind, too, can en­joy the cold. Re­search sug­gests that fac­ing the freeze when you ex­er­cise can im­prove men­tal re­silience and help you to nd fo­cus on your work­out, giv­ing your mind a break from wor­ry­ing about the stresses of your day. Jimmy Martin and Johnny Adamic are the founders of BRRRN, the world’s rst tness stu­dio spe­cial­is­ing in in­door cold work­outs (the­br­rrn.com). They’ve found that this is what their at­ten­dees most en­joy; they rave about feel­ing men­tally sharper af­ter a ses­sion.

Get out­side and make the most of the cooler climes – just have a hot bath on stand-by for when you get back!
