Workout and chill
Hate getting hot and sweaty when you work out? Well, this cold gym concept may be for you.
Brrrn is a studio that opened up in New York City earlier this month and the whole idea is that it’s cold in the classes and workout areas.
Not just air conditioned cold … wintertime cold.
The chilly temps aren't just for your comfort either. Research has shown that the body burns more calories when you exercise in the cold. Not only that, but when you are working out and not getting overheated you can work out harder and longer. That means you burn a whole lot more calories.
You just have to be prepared to feel really cold when you first walk in. Brrrn offers three types of classes:
"First Degree," a yoga class taught at 60 degrees
"Second Degree," a circuit-training class taught at 55 degrees
"Third Degree," a circuit-training class with battle ropes that's taught at 45 degrees
