SAUNA’S IMPROVE PERFORMANCE DURING ENDURANCE SPORTS
Our body has a certain level for heat tolerance. Regular use of saunas increases the heat tolerance threshold. This leads to significant improvements in endurance sports as regular sauna users have a higher heat tolerance level and thus feel less fatigue and can maintain their energy level over a prolonged period of time, improving performance.
Another one of the major benefits of sauna’s are that they help create a STRONGER immune system. Sauna sessions help produce white blood cells. The white blood cells of the body are its medium to fight against attacking infections and ailments. As the regular users of sauna’s have higher count of white blood cells, they stay healthier and, if illnesses occur, they heal faster.
Sauna therapy is GREAT for weight loss, with minimal effort. During a sauna bath, the heart rate increases substantially due to the dry heat. Scientific calibrations suggest that a 20-minute session at around 170 degrees Fahrenheit burns over 500 calories. The body’s metabolism speeds up similar to the way it does from physical exercise and is a great method to maintain weight.
