Former Grand National Winner Champions Mental and Physical Wellness with Chill Tubs Partnership

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The UK’s leading ice bath brand, Chill Tubs, has partnered with Scottish jockey Ryan Mania, who clinched the 2013 Grand National on his first attempt at Aintree with 66-1 outsider Auroras Encore. Ice baths are a crucial element of Ryan’s routine, aiding his recovery post-training and boosting his performance.

Ryan competed in Friday’s Grand National meeting at Aintree aboard Empire Steel, trained by Sandy Thomson. That morning, he had already used the Chill Tub to cool down following a treadmill session and time in the sauna.

Ryan said: “Just before I head to race, I use my Chill Tub. It’s excellent for maintaining my muscle condition and clearing my head for the journey ahead.

“I also use it after races to ease aches and pains and improve my sleep. I’ve been using the Chill Tub for some time now, and it’s absolutely brilliant.”

Sarah Elphick, head of marketing at Chill Tubs, expressed her enthusiasm about the partnership: “We are thrilled to support Ryan Mania’s training and recovery regimen. The advantages of using a Chill Tub include diminished muscle soreness, enhanced recovery times, reduced inflammation, and better circulation.

“For those aiming to lessen muscle soreness, cold water immersion is effective in reducing symptoms by constricting blood vessels and decreasing inflammation. This can lead to quicker recovery times, preparing you faster for your next workout or competition.

“In terms of combating inflammation, cold water immersion proves beneficial not only for individuals with chronic inflammatory conditions, like arthritis, but also for boosting blood flow and improving circulation, which aids recovery and minimises injury risks.

“Additionally, there are numerous mental health benefits. It helps clear the mind, enhance alertness, and boost productivity. It also instills a sense of calm, reducing stress levels, anxiety, and symptoms of depression. Cold water therapy has been shown to improve sleep quality by triggering the release of melatonin.

“However, it’s not just for athletes or competitors. For instance, office workers or parents constantly entertaining children can find relief in a Chill Tub, experiencing a reduction in stress and an increase in mood-enhancing chemicals like endorphins and dopamine.

“Chill Tubs are generally safe for most people; however, we recommend that those with limited mobility or sensory and cognitive impairments use the tub only under supervision and with proper knowledge to ensure safety.

“As Ryan mentioned, the Chill Tub has been a godsend.” The Chill Tubs Essential, dubbed the world’s most affordable ice bath, will soon be available on our website.

Launched in 2023, Chill Tubs has quickly become a favourite among elite athletes, sports teams, and individuals focused on health and well-being.
