While working on this new exercise and mental strengthening program 75 Hard I have been looking for ways to mix up my workouts and still have fun doing it. My wife Savannah and I go to Mesa Fitness but she is also a member of their Sunkissed Tanning and Wellness, and told me while she was there she heard of this new Cocoon Deluxe Fitness Pod that was free to try out this weekend. She asked if we could make time to do it this weekend, and you know how the saying goes, happy wife, happy life.

On Saturday morning we visited the location in Clifton and jumped in the Cocoon Deluxe Fitness Pod. It uses red light therapy and shakes you throughout the 20-minute session where you are laying down with this cocoon-shaped object around you pumping in heat to make it feel like a sauna experience.

Here is what we loved about the Cocoon

You're laying down and burning calories, what is not to love. You're first instructed to strip down completely and lay on the surface on a towel. Then you start the session and you are able to make changes to massage level, temperature heat, and if you want a light fan on your face to keep you comfortable. Both Savannah and I burned between 170-200 calories within our session and it was relaxing.

What we (I) didn't love about the Cocoon

While the experience was nice, Savannah loved it a whole lot more than I did. While I thought it was nice I was hoping for more of a massage than just the shaking motion that it performed. But really if that is my only complaint, I should go get a massage if that is what I was looking for.

Savannah absolutely would and is excited to use the Cocoon again soon. I would probably use that 20 minutes and sit on the hydro massage chairs offered at Mesa Fitness right next door and get more of the massage feeling that I like. But again, I still enjoyed my first session in the Cocoon Deluxe Fitness Pod. I really feel like this machine will be a big hit with ladies
