Douglasville Gym offers Sauna and Hot Tub for Relaxing Warmth.
The warmth of a soothing soak in our hot tub or steam room offers more than relaxation. These amenities, while immensely comforting – especially after an intense workout – also provide numerous health benefits. More than luxury, enjoying the hot tub and steam room at Gold’s Gym on Hospital Drive in Douglasville soothes muscles, eliminates toxins and improves circulation.
Let’s dive in for a look at the incredible healing properties of heat and water.
Aquatic heat therapy has been popular since ancient times. Even the early Romans boasted hot baths, though usually more for hygiene than soothing comfort. Today, hot tubs and steam rooms utilize hot water or steam for therapeutic benefit as much as relaxation.
Hot water relaxes muscles and eases pain. Individuals with sport injuries – or those with chronic health conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, neck or back pain – can find immense pain relief from a soak in the hot tub at our Douglasville fitness center on Hospital Drive. The buoyancy of water, allowing our bodies to float, eliminates stress and strain from joints. Your feet, ankles, knees and back can rest from carrying your body’s weight all day; your elbows, wrists and fingers can also enjoy downtime from movement and use. Buoyancy allows someone with a sports injury to perform light exercises while immersed in the warm water, which also loosens stiff muscles and increases range of motion.
A soak in the hot tub also improves circulation. As your blood vessels dilate (or widen), blood flows more easily. You’ll notice a decrease in blood pressure as you enter a relaxed state of warmth.
Similarly, a steam room uses moist heat to help you relax and detoxify. Steam also helps plump skin and balance oil production.
After your workout at our health club, why not take a few moments to decompress. You deserve special “me time” after fast-paced circuit training or calorie-burning cardio training. Hard-driven muscles will appreciate a few moments bathed in heat.
If you have a medical condition, first consult with your physician before trying hot tub or steam therapy. Soaking should be limited to 10-15 minutes, and remember to replenish the fluids lost by drinking plenty of water afterward.
From intense workouts to restful relaxation, Gold’s Gym on Hospital Drive in Douglasville has the services and amenities that take care of your mind as well as your body.
