Wellness is within reach because infrared’s healing light energy has been proven in many ways to help our bodies feel better. With gentler and more effective heat, Sunlighten’s infrared sauna benefits allow you to stay longer and reap more overall health benefits. Sunlighten has perfected infrared technology to bring you the safest, most efficient and effective infrared available.
Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum of light that has the ability to penetrate the human tissue. Infrared heat therapy uses these infrared light characteristics to heat the body directly rather than just the air. Infrared heat therapy has also been proven to assist with detoxification, pain relief, weight loss and cellulite removal, lower blood pressure, improved circulation, anti-aging, skin purification and rejuvenation, improved cell health and immunity, wound healing, relaxation, and stress relief.
GET THE OPTIMAL DOSE OF EACH IR WAVELENGTH
The most advanced infrared therapy available is Sunlighten's Solocarbon 3-in-1infrared treatment. The infrared spectrum consists of near (NIR), mid (MIR), and far (FIR) waves, each with distinct characteristics and health benefits. Sunlighten delivers the perfect wavelength of each infrared wave, like dialing in a specific radio station. You get precise near, mid and far wavelengths for optimal results, made possible with NASA-inspired tech. The SoloCarbon® coating delivers 99% effective infrared meaning your body absorbs it almost perfectly. You want to receive the infrared waves your body receives best so that you get the maximum health benefit.
Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared sauna use causes a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside.
LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
Infrared saunas induce a deep sweat to make the heart pump faster, which in turn increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and helps circulation. Only Sunlighten saunas arebacked by clinical research that shows a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Both are key factors in maintaining a healthy heart.
Near infrared saunas provide the most effective wavelength for healing the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
Near infrared sauna therapy stimulates the circulatory system and more fully oxygenate the body’s cells. Better blood circulation means more toxins flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface to improve cell health, aid in muscle recovery and strengthen the immune system.
Studies have shown that a far infrared sauna therapy session can burn upwards of 600 calories while you relax! As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causing the body to burn more calories. In fact, a 2009 study showed Sunlighten far infrared therapy to lower weight and waist circumference in just a three-month period.
A 2019 study compared participants’ cardiovascular effects in a sauna and on an exercise bike. The increase in heart rate was similar to a short, moderate workout. Researchers stated, "A sauna session is a physical strain. Its long-term positive effects are comparable to sports activities." The focus was on the benefits to the heart and cardiovascular system, rather than weight loss or muscle development. We call it a “passive cardio workout.”
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to relieve anything from minor aches and pains to chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, and speeds up recovery time. A 2013 study conducted at the Auburn University at Montgomery showed that Sunlighten 3-in-1 treatments can increase flexibility up to 3x. Combined with our flexibility routine, you'll be touching your toes in no time.
Near infrared therapy greatly enhances the skin’s healing process by promoting faster cell regeneration and human tissue growth.
Heat, in and of itself, is great for recovery, temporary pain relief and inflammation. Infrared light heats the body from within and penetrates the joints, muscles and tissues, increasing circulation and blood flow.
Good circulation is critical for proper healing. Red blood cells carry oxygen and nutrients to the site of the strain or inflammation, which helps to create new blood vessels and tissues at the site. The more red and white blood cells that can get delivered to muscles, the quicker they rebuild. Studies show NIR improves muscle mass and decreases inflammation and oxidative stress.
In the rare event that you experience pain or discomfort, immediately discontinue sauna use.
How do I get started?You have the choice of either booking a free 30 minutes consultation or a comprehensive fitness and movement analysis. The comprehensive analysis includes a full movement screening, evaluation of cardiovascular capability, resting metabolic rate analysis and measurements, and postural analysis. We recommend this to establish a solid baseline for your fitness journey and determine what training regimen would best suit your needs and goals.
How are Mavericks coaches different?We consider ourselves coaches who inspire people to succeed in every aspect of life by believing in themselves. By designing a specific exercise and nutrition program catered to your needs, and encouraging you every step of the way, we are going to help you reach your goals faster. How many times have you said to yourself, "I'll start my diet on Monday" or "I'm going to start exercising tomorrow?" The goal of our team is to keep you on track, and allow you to reach your greatest potential by pushing you beyond your comfort zone safely. We will motivate you, challenge you, and help you realize that you're worth more than you even know.
What should I expect in our initial meeting?The initial consultation is very important because it's a screening between a potential client and our team. Both sides need to agree upon specific goals, get to know each other, and feel comfortable. If you decide to work with our team, we will help you choose a package that fits your goals, budget, and schedule.
How frequently should I work out?If you are new to exercise or just getting back into it, we recommend a minimum of two sessions a week with additional physical activity outside of your training session. As a general rule, strength training at least two times per week is needed to make progress. The sweet spot for most clients is three times a week. For higher level athletes seeking to elevate their skills, frequency depends on the physical demands of your current sport.
How long will it take me to see results?Every person is different. Most people see results within 4 weeks. Everybody sees change within 8-12 weeks. With this expectation comes responsibility. We can only do so much - we are part of the equation but not the whole equation. When you go home, you need to stick to your plan because at the end of the day it's up to you to change. We teach you how to implement the positive changes so the at-home struggles are kept to a minimum. For people with a background in training, with certain tweaks to diet and exercise selection, we can achieve your goal sooner than you expected.
How long are training sessions?All one-to-one exercise sessions are 55 minutes. Health and nutrition coaching sessions are 50 minutes.
Can I use the gym own my own between training sessions?Yes. We offer private gym rental for current clients at a rate of $20 per hour. Contact Rock for scheduling.
Who is a great fit for Mavericks?A great fit is (or is ready to become): Self-aware Dedicated Positive Eager to learn Ready for change A great listener A great communicator Able to take responsibility for their decisions A poor fit doesn't communicate, respect our time, talk about their struggles as they arise, follow through, or want to do the work required to reach their goal. We're trainers, not magicians. You have to play an active role in your progress. If you aren't ready for real change, we can't take you on as a client.
What should I wear?Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely. We train barefoot to encourage balance and stability through the feet.
Why do you train barefoot?We've found that unfortunately, many people don't pay attention to their body until it hurts. By paying special attention to the foundation of our body, our feet, we influence the alignment of the joints up the chain, for example knees, hips, and shoulders. This has a huge impact to the wear and tear on the joints during exercise. We teach exercises that improve your overall health and well-being, not break you down.
Do I need a doctor's note to work out?Our team reserves the right to require medical clearance from a general practitioner for any client they feel may be at risk.
What is your cancellation policy?Please give us 24 hours notice if you are going to change or cancel your appointment, otherwise we will have to charge for the session. You can reschedule up to 12 hours in advance of your session.
What is the refund policy?If at any time in the first 30 days, you decide we aren't a great fit, we'll refund all of your unused sessions. Beyond that, all packages are non-refundable. They can be transferred to another person. Extenuating circumstances may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for eligibility of a refund.
What forms of payment do you accept?We accept cash, check, venmo, or credit card, including contactless payment.
Am I going to get bulky?No. Most women do not have the biological disposition to get bulky. Our training is based on building long, lean, functional muscle. You have to work really hard to get big.
Do you have female trainers?No. Rock is knowledgeable in women's concerns and has extensive experience helping women of all shapes and sizes get stronger, more mobile, and more capable. One of Maverick's core values is creating a safe space for all.
Will the program be adapted for me?Yes! No matter what your starting point is or what your goals are every program is customized to your individual needs.
What changes can I expect?You can expect a variety of changes including, but not limited too: improved confidence, sense of well-being, reduced body fat, lean muscle growth, perkier butt, flatter stomach, better posture, and more.
Does Rock understand strength training and mobility for me?Yes! Age is just a number when it comes to your health! You can always improve, no matter where you are on your journey. And that's where Rock comes in - he's an expert in working with all ages. He's got several certifications in exercise for seniors. Rock even developed a special balance training routine that helps older adults improve their stability and confidence when walking. Functional fitness is key! You need to be able to do all the things you love, whether it's getting out of bed, out of the car, off the couch, or off the floor. Rock can help you get there, safely and effectively.
I have difficulty moving. Can you help?Part of our program addresses movement issues. We can adapt your program to a seated or standing position. We routinely get referrals from physical therapists for additional exercises to improve general health, balance, stability, and strength.
I have a limitation (heart, eye, neurological, etc.)."We have no problem discussing your program with your health care providers to ensure it won't negatively effect you. We also work on controlling common illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, and joint instability. We will need a letter from your primary health provider ensuring you are ready for exercise.
