PARK CITY, Utah — In the coming weeks, Park City’s newest workout option, HOTWORX, will open in Kimball Junction. The world-wide fitness business franchise provides 24-hour infrared technology.
Park City’s location actually is just catching up to the trend as one of 600 hundred HOTWORX studios across the country. A year ago, that number was only 150.
HOTWORX is a virtually instructed exercise program created for users to experience infrared heat absorption while completing a 30-minute isometric workout or 15-minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session. As the infrared heat penetrates the body causing sweat, the isometric postures, it’s said, further accelerate detoxification by physically removing the toxins from organs through muscle contraction.
Their patented sauna combines heat, infrared and exercise, what they call “3D Training.” Stationary bikes, rowing-type machines, resistance bands, yoga, pilates and more happen in front of the same screened network of virtual instruction as is taking place in many countries around the world, including in South America, Europe, and in Dubai.
The newest location in Kimball Junction will feature 10 sauna spaces, each holding up to three people.
HOTWORX Park City is a family affair. The owners and operators are a family from Utah county. Nate and Julie Taylor, their son Ethan, and his wife Tessa are excited to bring this company to fruition.
Nate told TownLift, “Imagine doing your fitness routine but with the infrared, you can get about the same calorie burn in half the time or twice as much for the same amount of time. So if you’re busy, you can pop in for a 15-minute session and you can burn about 300 calories in the session plus up to an additional 600 afterwards, so it accelerates all the fitness goals.”
