Warm It Up!


Posted November 4, 2018

The warm up is one of the most important elements of an exercise regime. HOTWORX, the virtually instructed infrared sauna workout, uses a combination of heat, infrared energy and exercise to flush toxins from the body, while strengthening and toning the muscles.  Each 30-minute isometric workout within the HOTWORX consists of three phases, the launch phase, the flight phase and the landing phase.  The launch phase, which lasts approximately 3-5 minutes, utilizes low intensity movements that engage the muscles that will be used in subsequent phases of the workout. This warm up phase is critical to raising core temperature and increasing blood circulation, which in turn helps to heat the muscles and ligaments in preparation for more strenuous activity.

As a compliment to the heated exercise program and to help kick start the launch phase of the workout, HOTWORX has recently introduced Hot Exercise Gel.  This circulation-inducing gel contains warming niacin and anti-inflammatory vitamins. When applied topically to the body prior to your HOTWORX session, the gel improves pre-exercise stretching and encourages mobility and circulation throughout the workout. The ingredients are scientifically formulated to cause the blood to flow quickly, evenly, and without causing the heartbeat to increase. Circulation helps the body’s waste disposal system to more efficiently expel toxic waste and fluid.  When preparing for your HOTWORX Session, ensure you are fully prepared with your HOTWORX Mat, Towel & most importantly, the new Hot Exercise Gel.  Apply the Sweat Accelerator to the problem areas of the body, such as sore muscles or joints and get ready to warm it up!

Regardless of your exercise routine, never skip the warm up!  The warm up increases oxygen delivery to the muscles, helps prepare the nervous system and cardiovascular system for exercise, and most importantly helps get the mind right so that you can focus on the task at hand.  It’s often mind over matter, so give your brain a chance to transition from moderate movements to more intense exercise.  Join us for a HOTWORX session and pick up the new HOT Exercise Gel by visiting a studio or Planet Beach nearest you.  Visit https://hotworx.net/free-trial/ to claim your free session and start your new fitness routine.  Warm up those muscles, invest in yourself and join the HOTWORX movement today!
