Warmth may be best known for its comforting and relaxing properties, but heat therapy provides pain relief for sore and injured  muscles and can expedite the healing process.

Applying heat promotes healthy blood flow that increases the oxygen and nutrient flow to muscles, relieving pain, decreasing recovering time and improving overall performance.

Health Benefits of Heated Clothing for Athletes

Heat for Painful Joints and Arthritis

Heat therapy isn’t just for muscles.  Stimulating blood flow and increasing circulation increases the range of motion and reduces stiffness in painful joints.

Benefits for Athletes

Winter athletes have to perform in cold temperatures, but when the body is cold it tends to be slow, sensitive and tight, which can give the feeling of being uncoordinated. 

Keeping warm is one thing, but heating the body will help you perform at your best.  Keep warm and: 

  • Increase Overall Performance
  • Increase Muscle Efficiency
  • Increase Flexibility and Range of Motion
  • Decrease Stiffness
  • Decrease Sensitivity
  • Decrease Likelihood of Injury or Soreness
  • Decrease Recovery Time

Winter Competition Pro Tips

Keeping warm will help you stay loose, limber, agile and less likely to get injured or feel sore later.  Being warm also BOOSTS PERFORMANCE compared to performing while cold, so here are some best practices to make you perform better.

  • Warming up serves two purposes- to enhance performance and prevent injury, so always keep warm.
  • Crank the heat on the chairlift. Don’t let those rides cool and stiffen your muscles. It is a lot harder to bring up the core temperature after it has dropped.
  • Before you drop in, turn the heat off and conserve the battery while your body generates its own heat.
  • Feel free to laugh at your friends when they start to shiver on the chairlift.
  • Warmth brings a Positive Attitudewhich breeds Confidence allowing you to overcome those pesky mental barriers.

"You can undermine a lifetime of training if your muscles are sore or stiff during competition."

"Besides the health benefits, the biggest benefit of heated gear is the ability to just stay comfortable. Heated apparel offers an opportunity for people, sensitive to the cold weather, to be able to go out and enjoy all the things that life has to offer and be comfortable while doing it. This opens the door for folks to go places and do things that they would not have normally done without the comforting warmth of heated clothing."
