Cold therapy for post-workout recovery is widely used as it is extremely effective in improving recovery, sleep, and overall stress. The Cold Plunge takes this form of therapy to new levels as it uses powerful cooling, filtration, and sanitation to provide cold and clean water.

The Cold Plunge claims it is far superior to any ice bath so you no longer have to lug buckets of ice to your bathtub or barrel. Instead, with the Cold Plunge, you simply plug in the tub, fill it with a hose, set your temperature and get in. But, costing a whopping $4,990.00, this bad boy is likely above most budgets.

Product Summary

Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve heard all about the benefits of cold water immersion therapy for post-workout recovery. Professional athletes have been using it for years and it has steadily become more popular. If you are looking to add this recovery therapy to your routine, look no further as the Cold Plunge may just be for you. 

The Cold Plunge is an ergonomic tub measuring slightly over 2 feet high, 3-feet-7-inches wide, and 5-feet-7-inches long.  It weighs 150 pounds empty and 1,000 pounds when filled with water, so be sure to set this up in an area that can support that weight. The plug-and-plunge design makes for a very easy set up. Simply find a supported area to keep it and plug it into a GFCI 110 outlet. Filling the tank is seamless with the added water hookup that works with any standard garden hose. Additionally, there is a hose filter that removes any impurities from the water.

The Cold Plunge features a cell phone holder, built-in under-water light, ozone sanitation, circular filtration, and a 20-micron filter. It also comes with an insulated spa cover and skimmer net to keep it clean and minimize maintenance costs. It’s backed by a 1-year warranty, and you can also purchase an additional three or five years coverage. 

While this tub is amazing, it is pricey. It is less expensive than other cold tubs on the market, but not many of us have close to $5,000 to drop. If you have the means and are in the market for a cold tub, however, The Cold Plunge is a phenomenal choice.
