Becoming one of Adelaide’s most sought-after health & wellness destinations, Fast Twitch is the home to state-of-the-art pieces of equipment that you wouldn’t find at most gyms. From contrast therapy tubs, red light therapy, and even a float tank, we recently sat down with Jeremy at Fast Twitch who shared with us how he and the team have worked to build a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about using science and evidence-based protocols to help improve their physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
Why Infrared Sauna?
At Fast Twitch, we are trying to build a community of like-minded individuals who are passionate about the same things we are. We love using science and evidence-based protocols to help improve the physical, mental and spiritual well-being of our members. When we heard about the benefits of infrared sauna, we knew this would be a perfect fit for our members.
We strive for innovation and growth at Fast Twitch. We are always up to trial new ways to train & recover. In fact, we have some state-of-the-art pieces of equipment that most gyms don’t, like contrast therapy tubs, red light therapy, and even a float tank. Our coaches have expertise in various training methods including rehabilitation, elite sports performance, strength & condition, and even Rumble Fit boxing.
The implementation of Sunlighten’s infrared sauna in Fast Twitch has been mostly seamless. Our members were quite intuitive and eager to start using our sauna, the minute it was installed. After advertising an infrared sauna to our local Adelaide community, we’ve had people reaching out to register their interest in not only using the infrared sauna but signing up for our group fitness classes.
We can confidently say that the implementation of the infrared sauna at Fast Twitch has helped us grow our member base substantially. A lot of our members were already quite familiar with far-infrared heat and technology as we have been using similar heat in our hot yoga classes. In particular, our yoga members have mentioned how they love to use the infrared sauna after hot yoga classes to keep their sweat going!
Most importantly, our members developed their passion for health and recovery. We found many of our all members chatting about the infrared sauna benefits on our Facebook group. This showed to create more of a sense of community amongst our existing members. During the colder months, our infrared sauna has been so popular with members after a workout, it's incredible to see the enthusiasm! For our members, the convenience of being able to go from the gym floor to the sauna, all in the same location has been really well received and appreciated.
We started doing research into the benefits of sauna and creating protocols for our members so that they can have a step-by-step guide to maximising their time in the sauna. We take the time to educate our members about the benefits of infrared sauna for the body, and regularly publish blog articles on our website helping them understand how their body interacts with the far-infrared heat. For us sharing the benefits of recovery through the utilisation of in-house modalities is vital. Not only from a perspective of gaining new members but also to ensure existing members realise what they have available to them.
