Traditional hot yoga programs heat up the studio using HVAC systems or by using space heaters to heat up the room. This type of heating technique simply heats up the air in the room which can make it difficult to breathe. Infrared heat is far more comfortable and is more easily absorbed by the body. As a result, the infrared heat waves penetrate the body instead of just heating up the air.
Infrared heat is a more natural way to heat up the body during exercise, causing you to sweat toxins out of your body. Thus, a 30-45 minute HOTWORX® program is a more efficient hot exercise method than a 60 or 90-minute traditional hot yoga routine.
Here’s how it all works:
The infrared heat enters your body as you perform the HWX isometric postures, causing your body to release toxins through muscle contractions. The program offers a great cardiovascular workout while also helping you gain strength and flexibility.
Infrared sauna therapy provides tremendous benefits to the body including pain relief, accelerated recovery time from workouts, a stronger immune system, lower blood pressure, improved cellular health, skin purification, improved circulation, collagen repair, and the appearance of cellulite reduction. Additionally, isometric exercises are great for growing and strengthening muscle, burning fat, boosting the metabolism, weight loss, and lowering cholesterol. Incorporating HOTWORX® into your weekly workout routine will give you the best 30-45 minute exercise program available today!
These virtually instructed infrared classes from HotWorx are some of my favorites. They’re based in isometric postures (which we don’t often focus on in other fitness modalities) and are so great for detoxification! The infrared heat, coupled with isometric movements, cause you to go deeper, faster. You start sweating almost immediately and you can really feel the toxins flushing from your body. I also love that you're able to take these classes at your own pace. Challenging yourself as much as possible but also resting when needed. All while still keeping your sweat on! If you're looking for a low impact yet challenging heated class HotWorx is for you.GingerACE C.P.T
"I am so pleased that I became aware of the wonderful facility at HealthSPORT By-the-Bay and the unique resources that are available at that site. I began with a Pilates reformer class and added the Hotworx sessions to my workout. After 2 weeks of attending reformer and Hotworx classes, I felt many positive benefits. I felt like I had more energy and was sleeping more soundly. It also seemed easier to lose weight and my skin looked healthier. I felt an overall improvement in the way I felt. I look forward to incorporating the Pilates and Hotworx classes into my regular workout when I am in the area, and then consistently when I move back in 2018."Barbara - By the Bay Member 2017
