Pretty Cool

Health (USA) - - From The Editor -

While work­ing on our story on the ben­e­fits of ex­er­cis­ing in chilly tem­per­a­tures (page 58), I tested out two of the ser­vices we fea­ture. 1. Af­ter a work­out at

New York City’s Br­rrn with my in­struc­tor, Cait­lyn (“Cake”), I wasn’t sweaty—but not be­cause I wasn’t work­ing hard. They keep the temp at 45 to 60 de­grees, which feels great and means I may have burned more fat and calo­ries than in a warmer stu­dio.

2. Next up: cryother­apy at the Nordic Edge in Eastch­ester, New

York. You’re ex­posed to ex­tremely cold tem­per­a­tures (–250°F!) for three min­utes.

It’s said to re­duce in­flam­ma­tion and help with aches and pain.

With just one ses­sion, I can’t vouch for ma­jor re­sults, but the cold was tol­er­a­ble, and it sure feels good when you step out into a fluffy bathrobe!

Health and Mered­ith Cor­po­ra­tion, our par­ent com­pany, are team­ing up with the #See­Her ini­tia­tive in an ef­fort to elim­i­nate bias of women and girls in ad­ver­tis­ing, me­dia, and pro­gram­ming. The #See­Her mis­sion is to more ac­cu­rately por­tray women and girls in me­dia by 2020, the 100th an­niver­sary of women win­ning the right to vote. For ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion, visit See­Her.com, mered­ith.com, or fol­low them on Face­book, Twit­ter, and In­sta­gram.
