JNH: Why did you want an infrared sauna?
Alex: I know the awesome benefits of infrared saunas are on recovery, mental health, and cleansing. I put so much emphasis on my muscles and body when I am training, I wanted some time to be able to give my body some love.
JNH: How often do you use it?
I use my sauna 3-4 times a week!
JNH: How long are your sessions?
Alex: My session time varies. I try to sit in it at least 10 minutes but upwards of 30 on days I really need it.
JNH: What results have you seen over the past year of using your ProSeries?
Alex: I have seen a serious improvement of my emotion and mood. 2020 was a roller coaster of emotions and we were stuck inside A LOT. I get pretty seasonally depressed and having the heat and being able to sweat was imperative for my sanity!
JNH: What has changed for you with regular ProSeries usage?
Alex: I can tell my recovery time has shortened immensely! I am not sore as long and if I am, nothing a good stretch in the sauna cannot fix.
JNH: What benefits have you experienced?
Alex: I've experienced so many benefits from my sauna usage! I love how quickly it can warm me up for a bike ride or yoga session. I also love how I can go in there and wind down after an intense workout. The sauna is so versatile and it truly sets the tone for my training.
JNH: Would you recommend infrared sauna usage?
Alex: YES! I think everyone should experience this lovely sauna and integrate it into their daily practice
JNH: What do you think about your JNH Lifestyles ProSeries sauna?
Alex: I love it so much! It feels like a warm hug that is ridding you of all of your toxins
JNH: How important has your ProSeries become to your workout? Daily life?
ALex: The ProSeries is vital to a great workout! Whether it is before and I am warming up or afterwards and I am continuing a great sweat, I feel that I get the most out of my workouts due to the ProSeries
JNH: Having it in your home, does this make a difference?
Alex: Absolutely! Having it in my home is a huge convenience factor. Not having to worry about traveling somewhere, getting to use it on demand whenever I want is huge
