Yes. In fact, it is recommended. If you workout before your exposure, you must be completely dry, free of sweat. You can expect greater recovery due to the inflammation reduction. If you work-out after your exposure, you can expect a higher pain tolerance, more energy and greater flexibility.
How soon after my treatment can I expect results?
It depends on the results you are trying to to achieve. We generally recommend 2-3 treatments per week to see results. The Cryo Studio can not guarantee that any of our clients will see specific results, however we can tell you that you’ll likely feel great right away. After completing the first treatment our clients experience a release of endorphins, the body’s natural mood elevator, a lift that can last for several hours. Depending on your physical condition, you may feel immediate relief from joint and muscle pain, improved energy, and increased flexibility that can last for several hours or even days.
