We're bringing in the heat AND the healing.
Announcing our NEW ultra low-EMF infrared saunas equipped with carbon fiber heaters. We'll provide an access key fob for the sauna room allowing members 24/7 access.

Saunas are a WHOLE BODY treatment that is completely natural and incredibly safe from head to toe. A sauna makes the body react as if you were doing a moderate aerobic exercise causing vigorous sweating and an increased heart rate.
Infrared waves are part of the invisible EM (Electromagnetic) spectrum. These waves are measured in microns. There are 3 different types of infrared waves: near, mid, & far. Near infrared waves fall between .7 - 2 microns, mid infrared waves are 2- 4 microns, far ranges a broad 4-1,000 microns.
Gateway Fitness Gym's saunas are low EMF Far-Infrared meaning they put out infrared waves that fall very low on the EM spectrum. With this said, Gateway's infrared heaters fall between 7-14 microns.
Humans naturally absorb infrared waves between 6-20 microns. This puts the low EMF far-infrared heaters the closest to the human body's most absorbable energy. Not only that, these waves in particular also penetrate 1.5" - 2" further into the skin.
FAR Infrared saunas are clinically shown to raise core temperature making them effective for natural, non-invasive cellular detoxification through your sweat glands. Your skin (nickname "the third kidney") can rid large amounts of toxins by sweating.
Our far-infrared saunas provide all natural benefits you'd get naturally from the sun but without the damaging effects. The light waves penetrate the skin's fat cells causing vasodilation (dilation of blood vessels + lowering of blood pressure)
During vasodilation, the fat cells vibrate to get rid of toxins. This is one of the best ways to detoxify and greatest ways to stimulate your metabolism for weight loss. Here you are also burning more calories.
Deeper penetration results in more toxins removed from the body. The heat speeds up blood flow reducing time the body is holding on to toxic metals The speedy blood flow aids nutrition flow by effectively moving more nutrients throughout the body. This also leads to warmer hands & feet.
With better blood circulation, toxins are now led closer to the skin away from the cellular level. In turn, your cells are now getting healthier, your muscles can recover faster, and your immune system is stronger.
Infrared heaters put out waves so similar to your body's natural radiant energy that they are able to absorb as much as 93% of the waves that reach your skin.
This is why the direct infrared heat benefits you more versus other saunas that only heat the air around you.
Gateway Fitness Gym's infrared saunas are environmentally friendly by heating up quicker than conventional saunas and needing less energy to operate at their best.
Lastly, infrared rays lead to energetic feelings of rejuvenation and balance helping with fatigue, mood, and overall mental wellness!
Saunas offer incredible benefits and pair ever BETTER with a workout. Improve your muscle recovery, exercise your cardio vascular system, and increase your performance and overall health by using a sauna 3 or more times a week for about 20 minutes a day!
If you have any current health conditions, we encourage you to speak with a doctor about proper sauna usage for you.
