The Science Behind A FIT Bodywrap
Claims of fat loss and treatments for cellulite are everywhere. A FIT Bodywrap is different. There’s actual science behind our system, and it works! We’ve seen the results. What are you waiting for? Get fit with FIT Bodywraps. Still not convinced- check out our actual client testimonials!
What is Infrared Heat?
Infrared heat is “radiant” heat. Radiant heat is a form of energy that heats objects directly through a process called conversion, without having to heat the air in between. Radiant heat is also called Far Infrared Energy (FIR). Infrared rays in the electromagnetic spectrum cannot be seen, but are felt as heat. Like sunshine, you feel the heat but you can’t actually see the rays!
Far infrared (FIR) energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight, and is actually naturally produced by the body!
Your body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates skin, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to rid your body toxins and metabolic wastes by causing you to sweat.
FIR heat also stimulates the dilation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, relaxing stiff muscles, and even speeding the healing of sprains and strains. The increased blood flow helps aching and injured muscles recover faster because of the stronger blood flow and the quicker metabolic and toxic waste production being purged from your body by sweating.
How It Works
A FIT Bodywrap is a dual-action system. The first action is caused by the far infrared heat of the FIT Bodywrap. This heat does not make fat leave your body. Instead, the heat from a FIT Bodywrap actually breaks stored fat down and converts it into fatty acids that are used by your muscles for energy. As the FIT Bodywrap heats your body, you begin to sweat to cool down. This sweat is fueled by the energy from the converted fatty acids.
The second gut-busting action is caused by the proprietary FIT Booster mineral spray that you apply before you start your wrap.
This special spray creates a barrier on your skin so that your body has to work harder than it normally would (meaning you will burn even more calories) to produce sweat.
FIT Booster was designed to work with the FIT Coat that client’s wear during their bodywrap session. This coat works in conjunction with the mineral spray to create another barrier that enhances the effects of both the FIT Booster and the far infrared heat itself.
Most people don’t sweat enough.
Sweat not only cools your body, but it acts as a garbage collector. Antiperspirants, artificial environments, smog, synthetic clothing, and a relatively idle physical lifestyle will clog skin pores and inhibit the healthy flow of sweat. As you will learn, sweat can reverse all of these detrimental side effects!
Sweating is good for you.
Relaxing in a FIT Bodywrap could be the most vigorous activity you’ve had all day! The heat produces an artificial “fever” and every organ of your body jumps into action. While you look and feel relaxed, your inner organs are as active as though you were jogging or swimming. At the same time, your body is being cleansed from the inside out by your skin, which is busy sweating to get rid of all that waste.
Ninety-nine percent of what sweat leaves on the surface of your skin is water. The remaining one percent is that undesirable waste.
Sweating is such an effective de-toxifier that that it even draws out lactic acid which causes stiff muscles and contributes to general fatigue.
Sweat also flushes out toxic metals such as copper, lead, zinc, and mercury, which your body absorbs in polluted environments. Sweating can remove the daily build up of heavy metals from your body that would normally take your kidneys 24 hours or more to eliminate.
