Portable Ice Baths

Are Portable Ice Baths Worth Buying?

Men on beach Breathing exercise in ice bath

Ice baths have had a wave of popularity in the past decade. The benefits of sitting 3 to 8 minutes within freezing waters are more widely known, and access to portable ice baths is also easier, thanks to online stores.

Why Portable Ice Baths Aren’t Great

As with any imitation of a true experience, portable ice baths are often a quick solution to experiencing cold therapy, leaving most people dissatisfied in the long run.

This is mostly because filling the portable ice bath for every use becomes a costly endeavour. Think about it. First, you need to drive to the service station. Then, you’ll need at least two big bags of 5kg ice. That’s around $10 or more for each use of your portable ice bath. Factor in that two to three uses of ice baths per week is an ideal aim for those looking to recover from frequent exercise, and all of a sudden, the cheap at home experience, ain’t so cheap.

As well, consider these two factors before adding to the portable ice bath to your online cart:

The majority of portable ice baths are created from polyester, nylon and PVC plastics. 

You likely can’t store this portable ice bath within your house, as it demands its own space away from electronics and other indoor hazards. 

As such, these portable ice baths will likely live outside, and the flimsy materials they’re built with will be exposed to the sun. This will not only degrade the material over time, but the portable ice bath will also be a haven for odours and bacteria.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our cutting-edge wellness centre proudly boasts premium built, brick and tile ice baths, meticulously managed to maintain temperatures between 4 to 10 degrees Celsius. Unlike conventional ice baths or the flimsy portable ice baths you’ll find online, our facilities provide a luxurious and comfortable setting to embark on your wellness journey.

The Benefits of Quality-Built Ice Baths

Ice baths at XTRA Clubs are sturdy, built from bricks and tiles. Unlike portable ice baths, our baths are clinically cleaned by our sanitisation team every day to ensure an experience where instead of testing your immunity, instead you’re building it via the natural benefits of cold plunges.

Perhaps the most significant difference you’ll notice between XTRA Clubs ice baths and portable ice baths however, is the regulated temperature! We know that a consistent temperature between 4 to 10 degrees is incredibly important to our members, and why so many have sworn away from using portable ice baths again.

Within the walls of XTRA Clubs, you will also be aided and monitored by our friendly staff. This is so that in the event of an emergency, our team is able to assist your exit from the ice bath. Your use of a portable ice bath at home will likely be unattended, which can be a dangerous experience if you’re a novice to low-temperature recovery.

Ditch the Flimsy Portable Ice Bath and Trial a Premium Cold Plunge Experience at Our Inaugural Location

It’s official, in 2024 XTRA Clubs’ first location will be in Bondi Junction, at Oxford St Mall! We’re so excited to be bringing a sauna, steam and ice culture that is accessible to every person in Sydney. At this location, there will be 8 ice baths adjusted at temperatures between 4 to 10 degrees, giving you the chance to compare the difference between a premium cold plunge to using flimsy portable ice baths.

This is one the better opportunities to access affordable ice bath therapy in Sydney, as our Starter Package at $23.95/week is more than half the typical cost of other wellness centres (plus, way cheaper than a portable ice bath). You will also be invited to use the XTRA Clubs app to track the progress of your wellness goals in real time.

Additionally, this app will feature advice from our team of wellness experts, sharing their years of experience through video and written tips on how you can maximise your time inside and away from XTRA Clubs. There will soon be wellness workshops focused on ice/cold water therapy and using the ice baths within XTRA.

A Variety of Health Benefits at Great Value

You have read about the health benefits that traditional and infrared saunas can provide you. Now, it’s about actually stepping into these saunas and starting or improving your path to true wellness.

Where you will do that, is within XTRA Clubs. As mentioned, we’re new to Sydney, and we’re affordable. $23.95 a week, affordable. That’s right, we’re not just exclusive to those with deep pockets or with a promising athletic career. We cater our equipment, staff support, locations and free coaching and workshops available on the XTRA app to everyone who wants to feel like the best version of themselves.

XTRA’s traditional and infrared saunas will be tremendously helpful towards your achievement of this goal, but consider that there are also steam rooms and ice baths across each of our centres! Combined services like these at other Sydney physical and wellness centres will likely cost you more than double XTRA’s $23.95 a week package!

The Home of Ice Baths and More

Now that you know some of the benefits of frequent ice bath therapy, you’re likely thinking – well, what will this all cost me?

In the past, Sydney recovery and wellness centres have locked access to their ice baths behind expensive memberships or one-time costs. Some businesses still charge their members over $40 per week, making the therapy unachievable for many.

Seeing this entry cost as an unacceptable barrier to what should be entitled therapy for all Sydneysiders, the founders of XTRA Clubs are providing affordable access to ice baths, saunas and steam rooms. Starting at $23.95 per week, XTRA Clubs is your best way to benefit from ice bath therapy.

Some key questions about ice bath Sydney

For a portable ice bath, you’ll typically need around 7kgs of ice to reach the 13 to 20°C sweet spot. You could have fun going from store to store looking for small bags of ice, or splurging on two 5kg bags of ice from the servo.

OR, you could use the ice baths at XTRA Clubs.

  • Regulated temperature
  • Sanitised daily
  • No BYO ice bags needed

 

Ditch the portable ice bath…

Frequent plunges in ice baths are beneficial for losing weight. Up to three days after using an ice bath, the body’s metabolism is given a significant boost, which in-turn, burns calories

We advise swimsuits. Here’s a few reasons why:

Formal suits can get really hot in there

Birthday suits don’t look hot in a public space

If you ever forget your swimsuit to our saunas, we keep a few for purchase. Just ask one of our staff for help!
