Here’s how many calories a 150 pound person normally burns up in 30 minutes!

  • Marathon Running/593
  • Vigorous Racquet Ball/510
  • Swimming (crawl stroke)/300
  • Jogging/300
  • Tennis (fast game)/265
  • Cycling (10 mph)/225
  • Golfing (without a cart)/150
  • Walking (3.5 mph)/150
  • Bowling/120

Some weight loss authorities believe that our bodies use fat to dilute toxins. Since a Good Health Sauna is an unsurpassed expeller of toxins, it is also a great way to get rid of any fat our bodies are using to dilute toxins we are storing.

Burn Calories in the Sauna

When you are relaxing in our infrared sauna, your body is actually working. This passive cardiovascular conditioning increases heart rate and metabolism, produces sweat, pumps blood and burns calories, increases metabolism, boosts your metabolism and weight loss, as well as fight obesity, diabetes and heart disease!

Far Infrared heat generated in a sauna penetrates deep into your body (up to 2 inches deep) causing a heating effect deep in your muscles and organs. Your body then reacts by increasing your metabolic rate and raising your pulse as you start to sweat. As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. This profuse sweating helps to increase your basal body temperature, which also increases your metabolism to work. With a higher metabolism, your body converts food into energy at a faster rate. By having a slower metabolism rate the body starts to store the energy in fat tissues, which, if not released through diet and exercise, will remain in the tissue and weight will be gained.

Weight Loss & Cardiovascular Benefits of the Infrared Sauna: As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Your heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase, while diastolic blood pressure drops, for improved overall cardiovascular fitness.

As reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), August 7, 1981 “A moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off 500 gms. in a sauna, consuming nearly 300 kcal – the equivalent of running 2 – 3 miles. A heat-conditioned person can easily sweat off 600 – 800 kcal with no adverse effects. While the weight of the water loss can be regained by rehydration with water, the calories consumed will not be.”

Since an infrared sauna helps generate two to three times the sweat produced in a hot-air sauna, the implications for increased caloric consumption are quite impressive. In Guyton’s Textbook of Medical Physiology, we find that producing one gram of sweat requires 0.586 kcal. burns 600 or more calories in just one 30-minute session!
