Why does it work?
When you submerge in cold water, your blood vessels constrict, pushing blood to your organs, where it picks up oxygen and nutrients. When you get out of the cold water, your blood vessels expand, sending oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to your tissues. This improves circulation, helping to remove metabolic waste products from the muscles and decreasing tissue inflammation.
Para tu resiliencia mental
Cuando te sumerges en agua fría, tu cuerpo experimenta una respuesta de lucha o huida, lo que libera ciertas hormonas (adrenalina y la norepinefrina). Estas hormonas son las mismas que se liberan en situaciones de estrés. Al exponerte repetidamente a este estrés controlado a través de los baños en hielo, tu cuerpo se adapta y aprende a manejar mejor las respuestas al estrés en general (tanto a nivel deportivo, como en las situaciones del día a día).

Frequently Asked Questions
How easy is installation and removal?
We design all the components of our Ice Bath - Cold Plunge to be easy to install and quickly to dismantle.
No tools required; simply inflate the tub with air, connect the hoses to the cooler and plug the power cord into an electrical outlet, and fill with water.
Disassembly is just repeating these steps in reverse order. On average, this takes 15 minutes for setup or removal depending on the water pressure to fill.
How is the water kept clean?
Keeping your water clean is a breeze with our 2-step water filtration system.
The filter makes sure any contaminants are removed before entering the tub and the water pump fully circulates the water every 15 minutes.
In addition, it has a UV ray system to disinfect the water.
If you want to keep your ice tub in a fixed place and for an indefinite period of time, you can use pool products to disinfect the water and you do not have to change it every 2 weeks (contact us).
What temperature does the refrigerator keep the water at?
The refrigerator will keep the water at the constant temperature that you program, the minimum is 3°C.
The water is recirculating, filtering and maintaining itself at the desired temperature.
Is it necessary to leave the system on?
We recommend leaving the system on when the ice bath is not in use, so it can filter the water and keep it cool.
The cooler will automatically shut off when it reaches the desired temperature, making it very energy efficient.
Always turn the cooler off during your ice bath session.
How fast does our Ice Bath - Cold Plunge get cold?
The actual cooling time will depend on the amount of water, the initial temperature of the water and the ambient temperature.
In our tests, we have found that the refrigerator will cool the water at a rate of approximately 4-5ºC per hour, allowing the bathtub to cool from an initial temperature of 20°C to 12°C in approximately 2 hours.
If desired, the cooling process can be sped up by adding a bit of ice when filling the tub with water.
When should I use it and how long should I stay?
This is a point of debate in the cold water immersion community and will also depend on its intended use (sports recovery or going further and pushing the mental limits).
Some prefer to take an ice bath immediately after exercising, others wait about an hour.
Many users use ice baths in the morning to help wake up and start the day energized.
Studies show that benefits can be seen in as little as 30 seconds. We recommend starting with 2 minutes at 10°C and lowering the temperature while increasing the duration as you become more comfortable.
If it is to be used for recovery after training, the best are sessions of 10 minutes at 10 °C.
If you want to strengthen your mind, we recommend submerging for 3 minutes at 3 °C (expert level).
Check with your doctor before beginning your cold water immersion routine.

What does science say about the Ice Bath or Cold Plunge?
Speeds up recovery and relieves muscle soreness
A scientific study conducted in highly trained athletes sought to investigate the effects of cold water immersion on muscle damage, perception of muscle pain, and recovery of upper and lower extremity muscle power after jiu-jitsu training.
The results showed that athletes who underwent cold water immersion had better measures of post-workout recovery. This was because lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) enzyme levels were lower 24 hours after recovery, compared to those who did not perform a cold bath session.
In addition, less perceived muscle soreness and greater perceived recovery were observed at 24 hours post-recovery.
These findings suggest that the use of an ice bath may be beneficial for athletes by lowering LDH levels, decreasing perceived muscle soreness, and aiding in the recovery of muscle power within 24 hours of recovery.
Increase your well-being and reduce stress
In this other study, we sought to determine the effects of bathing in the sea during winter on psychological well-being, stress and other types of diseases. 228 people participated, between 19 and 88 years old, including 107 winter bathers and 121 who did not bathe. Questionnaires and physical examinations were conducted to assess mental and physical health, as well as the presence of respiratory tract infections.
The results indicate that winter bathers reported lower stress levels and greater well-being compared to the other group. Medical examinations revealed no signs of respiratory tract infections in the winter bathers.
In conclusion, winter bathers (even the older ones) reported a perception of greater well-being and better health, suggesting that they may be taking advantage of the stress induced by exposure to cold water to improve their health.
Strengthens your immune system and reduces the risk of catching a cold
A study investigated the cumulative effects of a (hot-cold) shower on health, quality of life, and work productivity.
3018 participants were used between 18 and 65 years old, without any type of serious disease and without previous habits in cold showers. 4 groups were studied, one of them did not shower in cold water, the others had to shower between 30, 60, 90 seconds and for 30, 60, 90 consecutive days (respectively).
The primary outcome was the number of sick days and work-related absence. Secondary outcomes were quality of life, work productivity, anxiety, wind chill, and adverse reactions.
A 29% reduction in sickness absence was found in the showering (hot-cold) group compared with the non-cold showering group.
Fall asleep earlier and get a higher quality rest
When you take a cold shower or spend a few minutes in your cold water bath, your body temperature will drop drastically. As a result, your body will release chemicals, such as melatonin, the sleep hormone.
A scientific study found that daily use of cold water immersion, during a typical week of training, may be beneficial for perceived sleep quality. Participants who did the cold water immersion after their training session reported better sleep quality compared to those who did not.
This result may be of particular interest to athletes or anyone looking to improve post-exercise recovery and achieve better sleep quality.
In summary, cold water immersion appears to have a beneficial effect on parasympathetic activity and perceived sleep quality in highly trained athletes.
For this to be effective, you should not take a cold shower just before bed, but rather 1-2 hours before bed.
Improves performance in cyclists
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of post-exercise cold water bathing on heart rate variability (HRV) and performance in cyclists over several consecutive days.
Two groups of cyclists who performed two training blocks of three days each, followed by two days of recovery training, were compared. After each training session, the cyclists recovered by cold water bath or passive recovery.
Results showed that the cold water bath allowed better maintenance of mean sprint power, cadence, and heart rate during exercise compared to passive recovery. Also, HRV immediately after the cold water bath was higher compared to passive recovery.
In conclusion, cold water bathing can help maintain sprint performance over several consecutive days of training in cyclists.
Improves performance in soccer players
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of a single cold-water and hot-water immersion session after a soccer match on muscle damage and performance in soccer players. Twenty players completed a match and were randomly divided into 2 groups, one in cold water immersion for 10 minutes at 10 °C, and the other in hot water immersion for 10 minutes at 35 °C.
Muscle damage (creatine kinase, myoglobin), inflammation (C-reactive protein), neuromuscular function (jumping and sprinting abilities and quadriceps maximal isometric strength), and muscle soreness were assessed before, within 30 minutes of the end of the match, and 24 and 48 hours afterward. After the match, both groups showed increased plasma creatine kinase activity (30 min, 24 h, 48 h), myoglobin (30 min), and C-reactive protein (30 min, 24 h) concentrations.
Differential alterations were observed between the hot and cold water immersion groups in creatine kinase (30 min, 24 h, 48 h), myoglobin (30 min), C-reactive protein (30 min, 24 h, 48 h), quadriceps strength (24 h), and muscle soreness in the quadriceps (24 h), calf muscles (24 h), and adductors (30 min).
The results suggest that immersion in cold water immediately after a soccer match reduces muscle damage and discomfort, possibly contributing to faster recovery of neuromuscular function.
