Infrared Sauna and Fat/Weight loss:Whats the Connection?

Updated: Dec 6, 2022

How can incorporating Infrared Sauna in your fitness routine be the jumpstart to your fitness goals?

You've probably heard that saunas can have cardiovascular benefits, but did you know that they can also help you reach your fat/weight loss goals faster.

In this post we will explore the correlation between saunas and fat/weight loss, and how spending time in a sauna can help you achieve your health and fitness goals

How Saunas Can Help With Fat/Weight Loss.

There are a few ways in which saunas can help you with your goals. First, Saunas can help to boost your metabolism. When you spend time in a sauna, your body temperature rises and your metabolism speeds up in order to cool you down. This increased metabolic activity can lead to more efficient fat burning and weight loss over time.


Heart Health

Frequent sauna use improves cardiovascular function, reduces inflammation. A single session has been shown to lower blood pressure (after session is over), improve heart rate variability and improve arterial compliance. A study found that a sauna session is just as exhausting as moderate exercise. The researchers found that a 25 minute sauna shared similarities with a short bout of exercise on a stationary bike.

Additionally, saunas can help to reduce water retention by causing you to sweat out excess water weight. If you're carrying a few pounds of water weight, spending some time in a sauna can help you shed that weight quickly. High levels of stress have been linked to weight gain, so by reducing your stress levels with regular sauna visits, you can indirectly promote fat/weight loss. Stress is all around us and can lead to weight gain. So if a sauna session can reduce your stress levels, it would make sense to incorporate it in your routine. Also the heat increases circulation and thus decreases inflammation. So if you do push it really hard in the gym, a relaxing sweat may be just the thing you need.

What's stopping you. Sit and possibly be fit.
