The Intense Health Benefits of Saunas (ft. Zach Rowland of SweatTents)
Today we talk with Josh Rowland of Sweat Tents - a company dedicated to amplifying the remarkable health benefits of saunas through their innovative portable sauna tent, heated by a wood stove. Their goal is to put a sauna in every home in America. We talk about the holistic advantages, as well as well-established sauna health benefits including improved circulation, reduced inflammation, lower blood pressure, boosting metabolism, detoxify, stress relief, improving mood, sleep, and let's not forget HANGOVERS. Well that last one might not be proven yet, but saunas are hot, and this episode is in tents.
Shower Before or After Bed?
There is only one right answer. And everyone has a different one. Shower before bed... or shower in the morning when you wake up. Does a hot shower help you sleep better? Does a hot shower help you wake up? How gross is it to get into bed without getting clean? Whether it's your morning routine or bedtime routine... Someone is wrong.

I’ve listened to this podcast from the first episode. Two genial hosts, numerous interesting guests. It’s definitely a winning combination.
Wrap your lug holes around this podcast!
I genuinely look forward to each new episode of this podcast.
Max and Ali cover a lot of different topics and have a wide range of guests. When they ask questions it feels like they are asking not because they have a list of pre written questions but because they are actually interested in what their guest has to say and because they care, as the listener it makes you care about what they have to say too. That’s why I’m now drinking coffee with mushroom powder and waiting for my water bottle/foam roller to arrive.
Fitness, lifestyle and diet all discussed not in a preachy way but as a journey of discovery.
If you think less is more, you’re wrong. More is more! More Max and Ali, more new topics and more episodes in the future please.
