SaunaLite RedLight Workouts
About the SaunaLite System
The SaunaLite System is a new and revolutionary infrared exercise technology that reduces weight & inches twice as fast as traditional fitness equipment, increases energy, tones the body and promotes health. SaunaLite is the first system of its kind combining the time-tested benefits of cardiovascular exercise with the cutting edge technology of infrared to any cardiovascular device. By combing the infrared with any workout, you will greatly enhance the benefits of your workout.
How Does SaunaLite Work?
Sunlight consists of visible, UV and infrared light. Human cells, when exposed to sunlight, have certain chemical reactions. For example, when you are exposed to UV, you produce Vitamin D. A more recently discovered reaction is the affect of near-infrared light. When cells are exposed to certain wavelengths of near-infrared light, the mitochondria produces more energy, or adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This ATP is what powers every muscle in your body. If you exercise while exposed to near-infrared, you increase metabolism and burn more calories while having increased energy.
There are other effects of near-infrared. First of all, there is a mild warming sensation, not a hot sensation, as this would increase fatigue. This mild soothing warmth stimulates nitric oxide to dilate the microcirculatory system, meaning more blood and oxygen flows to the muscles without increasing blood pressure. This also brings blood closer to the surface of the skin, so if you use the SaunaLite just prior to tanning, you will have increased tanning results. The increased circulation will accelerate the body’s natural detoxification processes and will benefit the connective tissue in the subcutaneous layer, therefore, reducing cellulite. Infrared also increases flexibility and can significantly reduce pain from bad joints or a bad back when exercising.
The most important effect of the mild warming, however, is the release of growth hormone (HGH). HGH is an anti-aging hormone released by the pituitary gland that is critical in both increasing muscle tone and burning fat. The SaunaLite helps raise the body core temperature approximately 1°F which is necessary for HGH to be released, causing fat to be burned up to several hours after working out. The end result is the SaunaLite can reduce body fat 2X – 4X faster than just exercise alone.
So why would you not use SaunaLite when exercising… we can only think of two reasons. Either you have a medical condition restricting your use (see final question) or your fitness club, tanning salon or spa does not have one. At TNTU we have a bike in our SaunaLite so your can relax and watch a T.V. program while U peddle the pounds away!
What are the benefits of SaunaLite and Near-Infrared (NIR)?
- Boost Metabolism
The mitochondria (power plants of the cells) produce more ATP (energy currency of the cells) when NIR is in introduced.
- Reduce Body Fat
A group of 20 women riding stationary bicycles 3 times per week for 4 weeks exposed to NIR lost an average of 8 cm’s or 444% more as compared to 20 women doing the same exercise without NIR.
- Feel an Increase in Energy
NIR activates the color sensitive chemicals (chromophores & cytochrome systems) to depths of 23 cm’s stimulating the energy processes in cells.
- Increase Circulation to the Muscles
NIR causes the release of Nitric Oxide which stimulates vasodilatation of the microcirculatory system bringing more blood flow to the muscles.
- Better Endurance
Muscle fatigue was reduced by up to 42.2% when exposing muscle to NIR.
- Increase Strength
Growth Hormone release is induced by an increase in body temperature and not by exercise itself. Growth Hormone increases muscle mass, calcium retention, and lipolysis (the breakdown of stored fat).
- Faster Recovery Time
Microtrauma, tiny damage to the muscle fibers, is the basis of building muscle. Certain tissue regenerating genes including integrins, laminin, gap junction proteins and kinesin proteins have shown a two- to five-fold increase upon exposure to NIR.
- Workout in Less Time
Due to increased production of ATP and quick dilation of the microcirculatory system, a person can lessen warm-up time and work at a higher level of exertion without increasing blood pressure.
- Tanning Prep
SaunaLite brings blood closer to the skin surface which helps oxidize the melanin in your skin increasing the effectiveness of a tanning bed if used just prior to tanning.
- Detoxify the Body
Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Sweat is the only way to remove certain carcinogenic PCBs, dioxins, phthalates, and volatile organic hydrocarbons.
- Reduce Visible Cellulite!
Cellulite is exasperated by trapped fat and toxins due to poor circulatory system and visible by weakened connective tissue. NIR helps rebuild connective tissue and has been shown to reduce cellulite.
- Rejuvenate Skim!
DNA Synthesis of fibroblasts which affects the elasticity of skin can increase five-fold. The result is younger more beautiful skin.
- Lessen Joint and Muscle Pain & Increase Flexibility
Penetrating heat from NIR has long been proven to reduce pain and increase circulation to areas of discomfort. NIR has also been shown to significantly increase the range of flexibility.
