The Truth About Wellness: Why Brickhouse Gym Chooses Infrared Saunas Over Steam Rooms

When it comes to wellness amenities in modern gyms, there’s often a debate between the efficacy of steam rooms versus infrared saunas. As the CEO of BrickHouse Gym, a facility committed to real-world fitness and proven wellness solutions, I’m here to debunk myths and shed light on why we exclusively offer the best infrared saunas in our gym.

What’s the Draw of Steam Rooms Anyway?

First, let’s address why steam rooms have a fan following. The immediate feeling of relaxation and supposed detoxification often make them a crowd favourite. However, it’s crucial to note that these claims aren’t backed by scientific evidence. Immediate satisfaction should never be confused with long-term health benefits.

The Steam Room Fallacy: A Bottle of Vodka Analogy

Steam rooms can be likened to a bottle of vodka — both offer temporary satisfaction but no lasting benefits. In fact, the humid environment of a steam room can be a breeding ground for bacteria and germs.

The Weight Loss Illusion in Steam Rooms

A prevailing myth is that steam rooms contribute to weight loss. While it may be true that you see a minor drop in your weight immediately after, this is only water weight. The minute you rehydrate, the lost weight comes right back.

Why Brickhouse Gym Chooses Infrared Saunas

At BrickHouse Gym, we opt for evidence-based wellness, which is why we have installed top-of-the-line infrared saunas. Unlike steam rooms, infrared saunas offer a multitude of proven benefits:

  1. Reduced Inflammation: Infrared saunas use heat that penetrates deeply into your muscles and tissues, reducing inflammation effectively.
  2. True Detoxification: Sweat it out and detoxify genuinely, not just feel like you’re detoxing as in a steam room.
  3. Improved Blood Flow: Experience enhanced blood circulation, aiding your recovery and boosting your overall wellness.
