30 Day Study Starts For Chill Tubs
Rob Carlin, Managing Director at Superior Wellness will be taking part in a 30-day study to assess the benefits of using one of the company's Chill Tubs in his daily routine.

A Chill Tub and ice baths in general can have many different benefits on the body including; reducing muscle soreness, improving recovery time, decreasing inflammation, improving circulation and more.

Health, fitness and wellness company TransformNow are working in partnership with Chill Tubs to assess what happens to a body after using the ice bath every day for 30 days prior to Rob’s daily workout.

Imran Khan, founder of TransformNow which was launched in 2013, has over 20 years’ experience in the health sector on both a practical and academic level and is supporting this study. Based nationwide, they are proud to have won UK Fitness Awards in 2019 for Science and Innovation.

Before starting this 30-day study, Rob travelled to their Birmingham office to see Dr Imran Khan at TransformNow to undergo different assessments to measure body levels including the following:
  • Inflammation Levels: C-Reactive Protein (CRP), Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) and Interleukin-6 (IL-6)
  • Testosterone Levels: Total Testosterone Test and Free Testosterone Test
  • Additional Markers: Cortisol Levels, Complete Blood Count (CBC), Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and Creatinine, Liver Function Tests and Lipid Profile
  • Subjective Markers: Energy Levels, Sleep Quality and Mood
  • Body Fat Percentage
  • Expiration Lung Volume Test
  • Advanced Epigenetic Test
  • Blood Pressure Test
  • ECG
Before he started this study, Rob Carlin said: “I want to see how daily ice baths change my body and health. I’m going to track this with blood tests and by checking my body fat. This will help me understand if ice baths can make me healthier, and I’ll share my findings with others interested in trying it too.”

Rob shared his expectations ahead of the study: “At first, I think the ice baths will be tough and uncomfortable but I hope that my body will get used to them over time. I’m expecting to see improvements in my health markers, like lower inflammation and increased testosterone levels. I also hope that I’ll feel better overall with more energy, better mood and better sleep.

“I plan to take ice baths daily. It’ll be a key part of my daily routine for becoming healthier and stronger.”

After the 30 days, Rob will have the same assessments done by Dr Imran Khan again, to see whether the Chill Tubs has had an impact on his body levels.

Dr Khan said: “It is great to be working with Rob on the impact an ice bath will have on his body by daily use for 30 days.

“I am really excited to see the results. TransformNow can offer a number of different assessments and can provide therapy, nutrition and training plans tailored to your body.”

Look out for further updates on how the study is going on the Superior Wellness website and social media platforms. A full report will be shared after the study is complete.
