What happens after taking an ice bath every day for 30 days? Rob Carlin, managing director at Superior Wellness, will be taking part in a 30-day study to assess the benefits of using a Chill Tub in his daily routine.
A Chill Tub can have many different benefits on the body including reducing muscle soreness, improving recovery time, decreasing inflammation, improving circulation and more.
TransformNow is working in partnership with Chill Tubs to assess what happens to your body after using the ice bath every day for 30 days prior to Rob’s daily workout.
Imran Khan, founder of TransformNow, launched in 2013, has over 20 years’ experience in the health sector on both a practical and academic level and is supporting this study. Based nationwide, they are proud to have won UK Fitness Awards in 2019 for Science and Innovation.
Before starting this 30-day study, Rob travelled to their Birmingham office to see Dr Imran Khan at Transform Now to undergo different assessments to measure the following body levels:
• Inflammation Levels: C-Reactive Protein (CRP), Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) and Interleukin-6 (IL-6)
• Testosterone Levels: Total Testosterone Test and Free Testosterone Test
• Additional Markers: Cortisol Levels, Complete Blood Count (CBC), Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and Creatinine, Liver Function Tests and Lipid Profile
• Subjective Markers: Energy Levels, Sleep Quality and Mood
• Bodyfat Percentage
• Expiration Lung Volume Test
• Advanced Epigenetic Test
• Blood Pressure Test
Before he started this study, Rob Carlin said: “I want to see how daily ice baths change my body and health. I’m going to track this with blood tests and by checking my body fat. This will help me understand if ice baths can make me healthier, and I’ll share my findings with others interested in trying it, too.”
Rob shared his expectations ahead of the study: “At first, I think the ice baths will be tough and uncomfortable, but I hope that my body will get used to them over time. I’m expecting to see improvements in my health markers, like lower inflammation and increased testosterone levels. I also hope that I’ll feel better overall with more energy, better mood and better sleep.
“I plan to take ice baths daily. It’ll be a key part of my daily routine for becoming healthier and stronger.”
After the 30 days, Rob will have the same assessments done by Dr Imran Khan again, to see whether the Chill Tubs has had an impact on his body levels.
Imran Khan said: “It is great to be working with Rob on the impact an ice bath will have on his body by daily use for 30 days.
“I am really excited to see the results. TransformNow can offer a number of different assessments and can provide therapy, nutrition and training plans tailored to your body.”
Further updates on how the study is going will be available on the Superior Wellness website and social media platforms. A full report will be shared after the study is complete.
