World-class athletes

World-class athletes including LeBron James and Cristiano Ronaldo use cryotherapy to help their muscles recover and to heighten their alertness. Self-help guru Tony Robbins also told us he used the treatment on a daily basis. We decided to try it for ourselves.

We went to KryoLife, the only cryotherapy treatment center in New York City that is available to the public. Each three-minute treatment costs $90, and it exposes the subject's entire body to temperatures as low as minus 264 degrees Fahrenheit.

moto G4

If you gotta ware boots & gloves what about ones privates?

SuperAlfaDogg

I had to try this. If LeBron and Steph Curry and Tony Robbins do this what the heck. They're elite performers like myself ?. My experience? I felt psychologically intimidated by the temp. It felt like maybe being in a walk in freezer. The net result was ZERO soreness from DOMS and amazingly zero arthritic discomfort.

Rather expensive for some of us mere mortals but I would look into it for those who do marathons and extreme training. BTW I really didn't check my shrinkage but my favorite organ seems to be back to normal.

Thumbs up experience.

awa es

I think about the people who freeze there body's after they die of cancer in the hopes they will find a cure in the future but after these people get their money for this they fail to till them first you have to get around brain damage from a lack of oxygen sad, JUST BELIEVE IN THE LORD

Sruthi

This type of stuff works
Cause when your body is basically freezing , your body has to burn fat to bring up your body heat

Your body produces natural brown fat which helps to burn fat

Matti2609

Now that I saw it, I'm equally curious about and scared of doing this myself

Gary Berry

Sophia Jacob

I'm so happy, i never believe i will be this happy again in life, I was working as an air-hoster for 3years but early this year, i lost my job because of this deadly disease called Herpes virus (HSV), I never felt sick or have any symptom, till all workers were ask to bring their doctors report, that was how i got tested and i found out that am HSV positive that made me loose my job, because it was consider as an STD and is incurable disease, i explained to a friend of mine, who always said to me a problem share is a problem solved, that was how she directed me to Dr Abumere , that was how i contacted him and get the medication from this doctor and i got cured for real, for similar issues contact this herbal doctor via [email protected]gmail.com you can also WhatsApp/call +2349021975055...

In this video we will

In this video we will introduce you to Cryotherapy, which we tested in the Athletic Room in Houston, Texas! Whole body Cryotherapy or cold therapy is a short sharp temperature shock. Usually, you stand in a chamber at sub zero temperatures, which is in my case -120 degrees (i.e. -85 Celsius) for like 3 minutes. This treatment is very popular for professional athletes because it’s supposed to help with quicker injury recovery and overall better athletic performance! Please let us know your feedback and questions in the comment section below. We will make sure to answer all of your comments! ►SUBSCRIBE for 3 new videos per week: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiJxNRBw3b5Uhe9rkOnOXUg?sub_confirmation=1 Location we visited in the video: The Athletic Room: https://www.theathleticroom.com Instagram: ► Sandy’s Profile: https://www.instagram.com/sandylpal/ ► Sean’s Profile: https://www.instagram.com/sean_dev_/ Music: Music by Joakim Karud http://youtube.com/joakimkarud
