Recovery plays a crucial role in any athlete’s training regimen. It allows the body to heal, recharge, and prepare for the next intense workout or competition. Bangtao Muay Thai & MMA gym is dedicated to providing the best facilities for its visitors and athletes, and has taken their commitment to recovery to another level. Visitors and athletes can now experience the benefits of cold therapy, on demand, in our new ice baths in Bangtao.
Ice baths in Phuket offer several benefits for athletes:
Reduced inflammation: Cold water immersion helps reduce inflammation in muscles and joints, promoting faster recovery from intense workouts or injuries.
Muscle recovery: Ice baths enhance blood circulation, aiding in the removal of metabolic waste products and reducing muscle soreness.
Enhanced performance: Regular use of ice baths can improve athletic performance by minimising fatigue and enhancing muscle function.
Injury prevention: Ice baths can help prevent injuries by reducing swelling and inflammation, thus minimising the risk of overuse injuries.
Increased mental resilience: The shock of cold water can provide a mental boost, improving focus, alertness, and overall mental resilience.
Speedier recovery: Ice baths facilitate the restoration of muscle glycogen stores and promote faster healing of micro-damage to muscle fibers.
Refreshing and rejuvenating: Immersing in cold water after intense physical activity provides a refreshing sensation, invigorating the body and mind.
Improved sleep: Ice baths can promote better sleep quality, allowing athletes to rest and recover more effectively.
Reduced post-exercise pain: Cold water immersion helps alleviate post-workout pain and discomfort, enabling athletes to bounce back quicker.
Psychological benefits: Ice baths can have positive psychological effects, promoting a sense of accomplishment, discipline, and mental toughness.
Whether you’re an athlete pushing your limits or someone looking to maximise your recovery routine, the ice baths at Bangtao Muay Thai & MMA gym provide an accessible and effective way to revitalise your body and mind.
You can book yours at our front office, for 100THB per bag of ice. We recommend pre-booking a select time for straight after your training session, so the ice is already on-site for when you’re finished and you can jump straight in and enjoy the instant benefits. We recommend submerging yourself up to your neck for 2 to 10 minutes but even starting at 1 or 2 minutes is okay when you begin to get yourself used to the ice bath routine. Do not exceed 15 minutes.
