How safe is it to take an ice bath?

An ice bath should always be taken with precautionary measures in mind and if you have a pre-existing condition, you should consult a doctor and get the OK as to whether you are allowed to take an ice bath.

We would also like to refer to our general warnings:


Before using it for the first time, you should read the instructions for use carefully.

  • Wash the ice bath with water only before use. The insulated lid (air ring) should not be over-inflated to avoid inflation and damage.
  • Do not use the ice bath if you are drunk, sleepy or have taken narcotics. This poses a danger to life.
  • Also, do not use any electronic devices during this time.
  • Do not fill with hot water over 50 degrees. The water level should not be more than 2/3.
  • Not accessible to small children; applies to older people, children or people with special restrictions.
  • Hot bathing can cause increased blood pressure, dizziness, vomiting, etc. in different body types.
  • People suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure and other illnesses, as well as pregnant women, should consult a doctor before using the ice bath.
  • Anyone who has difficulty entering the ice bath should seek assistance.
  • Do not use sharp objects, as this may cause damage to the product.
  • It is best to drain the water after use; you can also leave it in an ice bath, but in the long term you should change the water every now and then.

How long should I stay in the ice bath?

The recommended time varies depending on experience and body condition, but many experts recommend staying in the ice bath for between 5 and 15 minutes.

To start with, water should not be used below 10°C and for no more than 15 minutes. Generally the magic time is 15 minutes, research has shown that the beneficial properties diminish and diminish after 15 minutes.

How do I prepare the ice bath?

First of all, you should of course fill the ice bath with water (cold water). You should find out the ideal temperature for yourself; the more often you have done the ice bath, you can use even colder water. The body has to get used to it.

How often can I take an ice bath?

It always makes sense to take an ice bath after a hard workout. The muscles can then regenerate better. However, you shouldn't take an ice bath too often: too many ice baths reduce their effectiveness
