An Infrared Bonfire for Fitness

There are those who train and there are those who train harder. This blog post is for those who train harder…those who want even more. Always remember that you get out what you put in! If you put more into your workouts, you will get more results from them.

When we opened the very first HOTWORX location in Oxford, MS, we wanted to offer something beyond the already unique infrared workout schedule. That is why we created the “Bonfire Workout”.

We all know what a bonfire is, right?

A bonfire is a controlled, open air fire that is used as a part of a celebration. The Bonfire Workout is a celebration of physical endurance. Let’s keep the fitness bonfire burning!

A bonfire is meant to be a spirited event. When I think of a bonfire, I am reminded of high school days and football pep rallies. At least once per football season, the cheerleaders would hold a bonfire rally to raise the energy level of the entire school in an effort to bring about a victory against a rival.

So, what constitutes a Bonfire Workout? Simply put, it is elevated cross-training.

HOTWORX wanted to give a name to a single session infrared cross-training workout. By that, we mean a workout that consists of back-to-back training sessions done without rest or time in between and inside of an infrared sauna. For example, a Bonfire might be Hot Yoga immediately followed by Hot Cycle, or Hot Pilates followed by Hot Iso and then Hot Blast. A true fitness warrior might start with Hot Warrior and then go straight to Hot Bands and cross-train to Hot Row for a third session without a stop.

Bonfire cross-training is a great way to condition the body with multiple workout types. The variety of workout movements strengthens alternate muscle groups to make your body more efficient for multi-purpose tasking. Because of this multi-workout type approach, greater strength can be gained for the body as a whole.

Greater levels of endurance can be the result from a Bonfire workout too. Multiple workouts back-to-back and acclimation to an infrared heat environment promotes greater levels of endurance. The endurance training through a Bonfire Workout can make your body more durable to defend itself against injury.

You can always do more than you think you can. Add another workout.

Try the Bonfire!!!
