Oakland A’s Choose Impact Cryotherapy for a Competitive Edge in 2017

March 28, 2017 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Just thinking about the competition gives MLB players a chill. And for the Oakland A’s, it’s about to get even colder. This pro team recently purchased a state-of-the-art whole body cryotherapy cryosauna from Atlanta-based Impact Cryotherapy. As the national leader in designing and manufacturing whole body cryotherapy systems, Impact’s cryosaunas are used nationally and internationally by a wide range of professional and university sports teams, athletes, fitness centers and wellness entrepreneurs and resorts and spasWhole body cryotherapy helps active people prepare for competition, recharge after workouts and train harder.

“After seeing our players use Impact cryosaunas off site at a private supplier, we felt as an organization we needed to provide cryotherapy at our Oakland facility,” said Nick Paparesta, Head Athletic Trainer, Oakland A’s. “Players see a noticeable improvement after Impact sessions. They have less fatigue and daily aches and pains from playing 162 games in 180 days.”

In choosing a cryotherapy business partner, Paparesta said, “Being made in America and their reputation throughout MLB were focal points of our decision to purchase an Impact unit over any other cryosaunas out there.”

Impact Cryotherapy has become the fastest growing whole body cryotherapy company in the world, through a combination of product innovation and excellence combined with the growing popularity of whole body cryotherapy. An athlete stands inside the cryosauna during a session on an adjustable riser to ensure their head remains outside the cryosauna. The Impact Cryotherapy cryosauna fills with nitrogen vapor, which drops the temperature to a range of (minus) -90°C to -120°C. This treatment lasts a maximum of three minutes. Once out of the cryosauna, the body immediately reheats.

“For decades, ice baths have been the only choice for collegiate and professional athletes,” said Richard E. Otto, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Impact Cryotherapy. “Rather than endure 20 minutes in an ice bath, they spend three minutes in our whole-body cryotherapy cryosauna to achieve better, faster results. Athletes love it!”

Impact Cryotherapy is the national leader in designing and manufacturing whole body cryotherapy cryosaunas, which are manufactured in St. Louis, MO.
