Powerhouse Students Get to Try New Chill N Out Innovation for Just $10
Are the holidays not chilly enough in San Diego? (When we can still hit the beach…?)
Chill N Out is offering Powerhouse Pilates students an incredible opportunity. The owner is receiving a new cryotherapy machine: The first of its type in ALL of San Diego. It’s going to be at the Sports Arena location.
You, Powerhouse students, can try the new machine for the first time for just $10.
Cryotherapy has become popular with a variety of celebrities and influencers around the globe, from Tony Robbins to Mandy Moore.
Here’s why – and what cryotherapy is.
It happens in a cryosauna. The purpose is to help heal and strengthen the body. It has similar effects as an ice bath would, except (thankfully!) cryotherapy is WAY more comfortable. In the process, your blood becomes intensely enriched then, after the session, that healthy blood is pulled back through the body in order to target injuries and critical areas. This process also triggers the release of anti-inflammatory molecules and endorphins.
This new machine is fully electric and walk in, which is different experience compared to the other version that uses nitrogen and one’s head sticks out the top! It’s an even more advanced way to enjoy the amazing benefits of cryotherapy!
Learn more and register for your appointment at Chill N Out Cryotherapy.
P.S. To confirm, the PB location is closed until further notice. This machine is at Sports Arena!
