CRYOTHERAPY

FIND OUT MORE ABOUT CRYOTHERAPY

We take health and well being seriously.

Some of our facilities would not be out of place in a premier league football training centre or an elite UFC gym

We are Lincolnshire’s only full-body cryotherapy provider and are proud to provide treatments to Lincoln City FC and other teams that compete both nationally and internationally. That being said cryotherapy is not reserved for athletes, we are visited by a wide range of people from Lincolnshire and surrounding counties. People use cryo for a wide range of benefits from creative thought and focused clear thinking, to anxiety, arthritis, aches, pains and mood disorders. With amazing feedback and results.

We also have a floatation sensory experience pod, again used by a wide range of people for a wide reange of reasons. Floating is catching on fast with elite peformers and athletes as well as those interested in exploring inner realms of conciousness. This is quite possibly the calmest most blisfull place in Lincoln.

ASSISTANT COACHES

Our assistant coaches begin their coaching journey helping out with the little viper classes. Over time we coach them vital skills which will become very useful in adult life and future carrers. Most of our assistants by the age of 14 are fully capable and do run adult sessions as part of their ongoing development as well rounded human beings.
