According to Tracy Anderson, when your body is put in heat, out thermoregulating system is challenged which will require other systems of your body to work.
“At the same time, you sweat and the muscles become warm, which means you have enhanced an ability to sculpt them, in a gentler way” (Tracy Anderson on Goop Clean Beauty). This is why, she recommends adding heat and humidity to the room in which you workout.
With time and after researching I have learnt that the best affordable tool to find this humidity is Conair compact upright fabric steamer. There are so many fabric steamers in the market that it can be very challenging to choose the one that works. You might find yourself asking: how much money should I spend? Is it worth purchasing one? Will I notice it during my workout? Well, the answer is YES. It will be a game changer. Your muscles will be able to work and move better and you will be less likely to injure yourself (during a challenging move). This post is in hope to help any of you that might be lost or hesitating about it. I usually work out in a 20 square meter room (215 sq feet) and this steamer works perfectly. My rule is: If you can’t see through the window…then the steamer is working, ha ha. ..
If you workout in a bigger room then you might want to get a more powerful steamer. I have heard this one is marvelous too, though more expensive. Check it here.
For an additional use: You will get wonderful results when using it on your fabrics, while saving money on professional dry cleaners.
Hope it helped!
