We recently had the opportunity to visit Primal Fit 360 Personal Training Center where people go to get SMART with Systemized Movement And Recovery Techniques. Personal training and group sessions are available. I was intrigued by the non-cookie cutter philosophy and the services offered, especially the RecoverME options.
The recovery section is the newest addition to the gym featuring Cryo Therapy, Compression Boots and Infared Sauna/Heat therapy. Professional athletes (local and training in Miami in the off season) use these services and now they are available to everyone!

“We treat the average Joe, like a pro,” says PF360 owner, Matt Pack. “In other words, the training, conditioning and especially the recovery professional athletes receive is what we offer at our unique gym where most of our classes include one coach for every four clients.”
Primal Fit 360 focuses on six pillars of success which include: Mindset, Coaching, Nutrition, Strength, Conditioning and Recovery.

I attempted the full body cryo therapy chamber then I did some localized spot treatment with the cryo therapy machine on my face and lower back. I say “attempted” because I didn’t quite do the therapy in a way that maximizes results. I wore a robe in the chamber over my bathing suit. Ideally, you should not wear a robe so that the below zero nitrogen vapor comes into direct contact with your body. As a Floridian, this is an especially difficult task. But, I did stay in for the maximum 3 minutes. They recommend at least 1 minute and a half. If you’re apprehensive, I recommend easing into the the full body chamber by first trying the spot treatment. It’s also a great option if you know that you want to target a specific area of your body that is in need of healing.

When it comes to fitness, it’s not just about “working out” but also “working IN” says the owner. In other words, we must heal and repair the body to keep moving forward toward our fitness goals.
