Floating is one of the most extraordinarily beneficial recovery tools that I can utilise as a highly driven, hard training, internationally competitive CrossFit athlete – of over 45 years of age!
To be able to absorb a heavy training load 6-7 days a week, 2-5 hours per day, I have to be 150% on top of quality recovery practices. Floating is a miracle recovery tool for my body!
Weightless meditation, utter stillness, withdrawal from the stresses of the world, deep muscular relaxation, a profound sense of calm and the absorption of mineral salts through the pores of my skin – it is everything my body, mind and soul needs to heal and regenerate.
Floating demands nothing from my system and gives so much in return! I float twice per week and have done so for over 5 years; with a regular routine of floating I am able to recover more quickly and completely, which means I can train harder sooner, which translates into better overall athletic performance and progress.
I cannot recommend floating highly enough to athletes wanting to gain an edge and support their long-term recovery and performance goals.
I simply could not do what I do without floating – and nor would I want to! I absolutely love it.
“I was very sore and stiff from hitting golf balls the day before floating. After the float, I felt great and the soreness and stiffness was gone.”
“I have a condition with my hip where there’s a pinched nerve and it makes my quadricep a little numb from time to time. … At the end of the float I noticed that I could actually feel the quadricep a little more than I had been able to prior to the float. It turns out that the pressure on the nerve had been released and it stayed that way for a good couple of weeks afterward.”
“What a great experience! Totally ‘back to the womb’ and cozy. As a fibromyalgia patient, I always feel pain somewhere. Everywhere, that is, except in the float tank. The relief was amazing and so much appreciated! Thanks!”
“I love it. I’m telling everyone about it. It was relaxing and fun. Best of all, it relieved my chronic back pain.”
After my first float session, I knew it would become a regular part of my fitness and recovery regimen. I’m constantly finding myself craving that state of relaxation. The isolation tank has been an incredible asset to relieving soreness, tension, and stress. As an avid martial artist, I’m always open to ways of enhancing both my body and mind. As I float, the world’s chaos disappears and I’m left in a state of pure meditation. With that being said, the sessions have strengthened my willpower and helped me see the world in a more positive light. I highly recommend floating to anyone wishing to improve their quality of life.”
