Big demands are placed on athletes to stay in the game and win. Yet winning a game can be directly related to how fast athletes rehab from injury or recover after practice. Today’s athletic training room should include equipment that helps aid recovery and enhance performance. These six elite sports teams use plunge pools for successful training and recovery.
1. GREEN BAY PACKERS
CUSTOM PLUNGE POOLS SUPREME
The Packers athletic training room is all about function and performance. It features glass walls, team colors, logos, and top-of-the-line SwimEx hydrotherapy equipment. In addition to the custom hydrotherapy pool, Green Bay has three custom plunge pools: a 26’ cold plunge and two hot plunge pools (12’ & 18’).
2. CINCINNATI REDS
This smart design incorporates different floor levels for an extremely effective hydrotherapy room. There is an in-ground SwimEx hydrotherapy pool with SwimEx hot and cold plunge pools installed partially above ground.
