The cold is both brutal and spiritual. A fierce stressor, yet a valuable teacher. It can be without mercy, and—if you let it—will reward you with the warmest of hugs. It’s why we have an unstoppable quest to help people like you to get their cold on.
We’re here to support people, like you, in their every day journey towards building a stronger mind and a healthier body. As Wim Hof says, “This—Sh*t—Works”
Embracing the science
The science is growing and irrefutable - getting your cold on is unequivocally good form you, especially as we age. We keep our cold guide up to date here so that you can explore the latest.
Do you need a Brass Monkey® ice bath for the benefits? … no… go get a cold shower and stop procrastinating! They’re just here, looking all beautiful and shiny, if you want one.
We built the ice bath that we wanted to buy
It was mid 2020 and Dan, the founder of Brass Monkey®, converted a chest freezer into an ice bath. Was it safe? No! Was it problematic? Very. Did it help him at a difficult period in his life? Absolutely, invaluable. He felt like a different person to the one that climbed in only a couple of minutes before—jumping in whenever he got a moment. Then he wondered, how many other people could benefit from having a safe way of accessing ice cold water?
Nature is the best source of cold
The sea, a beautiful river, a serene waterfall, do it whenever you can (safely!), but most people don’t have that nearby, and neither did Dan. He also noticed that the “ice baths” in the market didn’t make ice and looked crappy. Shocking! That’s when the idea for Brass Monkey was born.
We’re at the start of our journey, we love what we do, and we’ll be happy to talk to anyone about it. Get in touch
