Recovery Suite

We know you give it your all when you come to class, so we built the Tough Temple Recovery Suite to give you access to top of the line, scientifically-proven methods of helping your body recover as quickly and efficiently as possible. Add on the Recovery Suite Package to your current membership, and have access to the following:

Cold Plunge

Our cold plunge is an excellent solution to your sore muscles. According to the Cleveland Clinic, incorporating cold plunges into your routine have several benefits, including: easing sore muscles; reducing your core body temperature (best for post-workout); helps you focus; improves sleep; and decreases inflammation.

If it’s your first time using the cold plunge, make sure to have a coach with you to guide you through the process!


Our new top of the line Sauna from Plunge is now running in the Recovery Suite! With a top temperature of 230 degrees, this sauna is ideal for maximizing recovery post workout. Use it separately, or after using the cold plunge. According to the Mayo Clinic, benefits may include:

  • Improved pain for people with conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Reduced stress
  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure and stroke
  • Reduced risk of certain types of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease
  • Alleviated common respiratory ailments like asthma

Normatec Compression Therapy

Normatec Compression is a recovery system that uses a compression device to massage limbs with compressed air. The device surrounds the arms, legs, or hips and pulsates between zones to improve fluid movement and speed up recovery. The pulsing action mimics a manual massage and is designed to mimic the body's natural muscle pump action. Some of the benefits include:

  • Flushing of lymphatic fluids and lactic acids, helping remove toxins from your muscles
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced water accumulation
  • Accelerated recovery and rehabilitation

Hypervolt Massage Tools

Per Hyperice, the producers of the Hypervolt: “The Hypervolt massage gun and accessories are used for various purposes, including sports recovery, pain management, stress reduction, and general wellness. It's an ideal tool for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, or anyone looking to enhance their overall muscular health… It is effective for both pre-workout warm-ups and post-workout recovery. It helps to loosen muscles, improve circulation, increase mobility before workouts, and aid in reducing muscle soreness to speed up recovery after exercise.”
