For those already obsessed with the myriad wellness benefits of infrared sauna, good news: now you can work out in one. Welcome to HOTWORX, a 2-in-1 fitness and wellness experience that is not only a great workout, but also a highly rejuvenating and healing sweat session.

HOTWORX combines the benefits of an isometric or HIIT (high-intensity interval training) exercise session with the healing effects of infrared sauna for a calorie-blasting experience that is as rejuvenating as it is conditioning. Each HOTWORX franchise offers multiple infrared saunas that host virtually instructed movement classes to practitioners of all levels and abilities. Each sauna is equipped with control dials to customize temperature, sound levels and lighting. Choose from athletic-style yoga, strength classes that focus on core or lower body, barre-style fitness, Pilates, cycling, elliptical, rowing and their signature “Hot Warrior” class that consists of 30- to 60-second holds in strength building yoga poses for the ultimate detoxification.

Sessions are 15 to 45 minutes in length and are booked as stand-alone sessions or paired together for maximum strengthening and calorie burning. Because infrared heat warms up the body’s core, it stimulates deep detoxification. It also encourages quicker muscle recovery and reduced inflammation in the body, all good things post workout. Many people also find a sauna session deeply relaxing and often sleep better after a good sweat. All props are provided on site, including mat and towel, as well as resistance bands if dictated by the session booking. HOTWORX studios are well-appointed with communal stretch and weightlifting areas, water stations, showers and plenty of space to cool down post session.

With literally hundreds of locations across the U.S., as well as Australia and Ireland, finding a HOTWORX near you is as easy as entering your zip code here. And with the franchise operating as consistently as possible, you can be sure you’ll have an excellent experience visiting HOTWORX while on the road. Saunas can be booked online, via their mobile app or by telephone, and guests have the option of working out alone or booking with up to two friends for a playful and social vibe. Studios are open to members 24 hours, seven days a week. Stay hydrated and start slow; HOTWORX recommends setting the temperature to 115 degrees for those new to the practice. Once you know how your body responds, make it a habit; consistency is key for maximum benefits.
