This is not a review with “affordable” options. If you want that you can go to our other articles where we outline all the options that are out there. This article is strictly for those looking to spend at least $5,000 on a large cold plunge tub that is going to be used for commercial use.

The cold plunges in this article are top-of-the-line and have been carefully examined to make sure that they are in fact the best tubs for commercial use.

What we look for

In most of the cold plunge reviews we see on the internet, they overlook some things that we think are very important in the decision-making process. At the end of the day, the purchases are not small and you will likely be stuck with the decision you made for a while if you plan on financing out the tubs.

The things we look for in a top-of-the-line cold plunge are the following:

Best Cold Plunges For Commercial Use

Buying cold plunges for commercial use means the following:

  1. You plan on buying a cold plunge device that can cool fast and cater to a larger number of people during the day

  2. Want to buy a system that does not lose temperature (or has the ability to cool back down fast) when one person leaves the tub and another one comes in

  3. You want a high-flow rate system that gives your clients or athletes the best cold plunge experience and helps them reap the most benefits

  4. Do not mind making a larger investment into a device that you plan on sticking with for a longer period of time

  5. Someone that is looking to make a return on their investment in a wellness center by renting out space for your device

If you are someone that fits the use cases above this list is for you. The options listed below are investments and are considered the best cold plunge tubs on the market. We break down how we came to those conclusions in the paragraphs above.

Without any more hesitation lets jump into the list!

Best Cold Plunges for Sports Teams: BlueCube Modular System, CoreChill, or In-Line

The best cold plunge for sports teams has to go to the team over at BlueCube.

Bluecube is by far the most high-powered cold plunging device on the market and offers many options to choose from. If a sports team were to be deciding on what option to go with for the recovery of their athletes we would say you cannot go wrong with either the Modular System, CoreChill, or the In-Line 60/54.

The reason why we go with the following options is based on the assumption that a sports team is planning on buying more than one cold plunge to cater to more athletes and wants to invest in their athletes by getting them the best of the best cold plunge tubs to help them with recovery.

BlueCube Ice Bath: Modular System

Summary of Why This is the Best Option:

The modular system is great for a number of reasons the first being that it allows you to have one cooling unit to power multiple cold plunges at a time giving all the athletes access to the device when needed. With the modular system, you have the option of having one cold plunge linked to the cooling unit, two linked to the cooling unit, or three tubs linked to the cool unit.

The sizing of the tubs can vary to 60″ in length, 66″ in length, or 72″ in length so depending on the sport and the use-case for the tubs, sports teams have plenty of options to choose from with this cold plunge tub.

We have a complete breakdown for each of the options that can be found at BlueCube on our ‘Best Cold Tub’ list which can be found here.

Why it made the list:

The Modular system is great for those that need the ability to have multiple plunge devices being ran at the same time. Volume is the name of the game for people that make this purchase and the modular system is just the most effective way to get up to three cold plunge tubs to work off of one chiller rather than having three tubs and three separate chilling units.

Pros & Cons:

Pros:

  • Chilling Motor in 1 HP or 1.5 HP meaning fast cooling

  • High Flow rate (and ability to adjust flow rates) systems to get the most benefits out of plunging for the athletes

  • Unmatched convenience with the capability to have three tubs linked to one unit

  • Easy maintenance and setup

  • Sleek design that is built to last

  • Can run 24/7

Cons:

  • Most expensive option to go with ($21,000 – $75,000)

  • Must either pay in full or do a 50% down payment or in four installments (if you are buying the 1 to 3)

  • Shipping begins in the fall of 2023

BlueCube Ice Bath: CoreChill

Again, we believe that the highest quality units are going to be the ones coming from Blue Cube. Every cold plunge option we have looked at to date is not really batting an eye to what they have going on at this time, maybe you could throw MorozoForge or Renu Therapy at this time but we are really impressed when looking at the devices that Blue Cube has to offer.

This option is for those that don’t mind having separate units and want an enclosed system with the option of customizing the look of their device.

Summary of Why This is the Best Option:

The CoreChill complete breakdown can be found in our review of the options that BlueCube has to offer (here) but let’s look at this device a bit more closely!

Why it made the list:

The CoreChill has a really impressive chilling motor that sits at 1 HP which means that the device cools fast. Blue Cube devices have the highest flow rate on the market so athletes and those that plan on using the device will be able to break the thermal barrier and fully reap the benefits of cold plunging.

The tub is very easy to maintain being that it is an enclosed system. Much like other devices, these cold plunges get down to as cool as 36°F, have a washable filter, micron 5 filters, and come with a spa cover.

This device is most compatible to the cold plunge device at Renu Therapy.

The dimensions of the tub are the following:

Total Footprint: (LWH) 95″ x 39″ x 29″

Tub Dimensions: (LWH) 60″ x 24″ x 22″

Pros & Cons:

Pros:

  • Cheaper than the Modular System

  • Enclosed system

Cons:

  • Shipping begins in the Fall of 2023 for Pre-orders taken now

  • $15,000 (does have the option to finance or break down payments)

BlueCube Ice Bath: In-Line 60 & 54

The main difference between the In-Line 60 & 54 just has to do with the dimensions of the tub. The 60 is 60″ in tub length while the 54 is 54″ in tub length. This option provides teams with the option to add a nice wood-finished device to their locker room and provides as an excellent option that they could pick up today without having to wait till the fall to start the shipping process.

Let’s take a deeper look at the in-Line cold plunges from Blue Cube (review):

Summary of Why This is the Best Option:

This cold plunge device has a 1 HP chilling unit, micron 5-10 filters, runs 24/7, fits individuals up to 6’6″ (and 275 lbs) and adds a nice touch of wood finishing to the design of the tub. there is a spa cover that comes included in this device and unlike the above cold plunge devices you will not have ot wait till the Fall of 2023 for shipping.

Why it made the list:

This is the most readily available cold plunge device that would suit the Sports teams that are looking to buy a cold plunge tubs for their athletes. The Malibu 66 is a good option but if you are buying more than one you may end up paying closer to $100,000 on the devices.

Best Overall Cold Plunge Tub: Commercial Cold Plunge Tub XL

The cold plunge tub by Plunge is our choice for the best overall cold plunge for a number of reasons. When coming to this conclusion we looked at factors like price, flow rate, horsepower of the chiller, design, and branding. It is no doubt in our mind that Plunge is the most well-known cold plunge tub. While they may lack in horsepower in their system compared to other commercial units, they compete better on price.

Summary of Why This is the Best Option:

Now, there are two models that are available with PLunge for their commercial unit. You can go with the Commercial Plunge Pro XL or the Commercial Hot & Cold Plunge Pro XL, really the only difference in the units is one has the capability of getting warmer if you want to use the tub for a hot tub as well as using it for a cold plunge.

We have heard from people who bought the hot & cold unit that they wish they would have stuck with just the cold model since they did not buy this device to sit in it as a hot tub. Unless you see yourself using the Plunge device as something that you want to sit in and use as a hot tub it is probably best to just get the cold model.

This commercial plunge tub has a 1 HP chiller, can have 4 -6 people plunge per hour (on a 3 – 5 minute plunge), has Plunge’s best filter (20 Micron), and can be used for indoor or outdoor use cases. This cold plunge tub does come with an insulated spa cover, free home delivery, a 1-year commercial warranty (with the option to add on more years), and guided videos.

Why it made the list:

Plunge makes some of the best cold plunge tubs on the market to date. This option is great for those that are starting a wellness business and suit almost any environment. There is no mention of flow rate for the water so that is a bit concerning but this tub really does check all the boxes that we look for in a cold plunge tub. For a commercial cold plunge tub, they are pretty affordable too sitting at $7,500.

When compared to Blue Cube this model is great and is probably best for those that do want a high-powered cold plunge that still won’t break the bank. This cold plunge tub has a pump speed (flow rate) of 35 GPM so it has a fairly high flow rate.

The dimensions of the tub are the following:

Total Footprint: (LWH) 73″ x 47″ x 27″

Tub Dimensions: (LWH) 73″ x 32.5″ x 27″

Pros & Cons:

Pros:

  • Fastest time to ship (2 -3 weeks)

  • Free in-home delivery to the lower 48 states

  • 1 HP chiller

  • Can cater to many people

  • Durable and long-lasting tub

  • Sleek design that can match any studio, business, or home design

  • Can be financed

Cons:

  • Only comes in one size

  • No Color variations

  • No ability to adjust the flow rate like Blue Cube

Best For Hotels: Blue Cube Malibu vs Odin Plunge XL vs Commercial Plunge XL

Summary of Why These Are the Best Option:

If you have been reading up until this point you will notice that we have already broke down the models from Blue Cube and the Commerical Plunge from ‘Plunge’ but the new incumbent on the list is a company based out of Australia known as Odin Plunge (review). We are adding this to the list because we do think it is a viable option here if you are going to go with a cold plunge system for commercial use. First off, the design of Odin Ice Baths is second to none, they look nice with the cedar wood finish but does it have the chops to hand with the best?

Best For Communities: Inergize Health Portable Cold Plunge

At first, we were hesitant to even add a portable cold plunge device to this list but after doing our review on Inergize Health (review here) we were really impressed with what they have going for them. Today there are communities of people who are more mobile and provide a holistic experience including things like breath work, yoga, and other wellness practices. If you are someone who fits this camp Inergize Health Portable Cold Plunge Tub is by far the best to get more people to experience cold plunging and not lose the benefits of the temperature increase in water.

Summary of Why This is the Best Option:

Inflatable tubs are the best option for anyone who is going to see themselves wanting to be more mobile with their cold plunging experience. Along with the ability to be mobile, inflatable cold plunges are more compact and light when compared to the other models listed in this post. There is no doubt in my mind that Inergize has the best inflatable cold plunge on the market.

The material their tub is made of is similar to many other inflatable options on the market (polar monkeys review) but the chiller competes with some of the best cold plunges on the market. They have a 3/4 HP chiller which is a higher horsepower than the standard cold plunge from Plunge, Renu therapy commercial unit, and Morozko forges commercial unit!

Why it made the list:

The chiller and lightweight design of the portable cold plunge made by Inergize is unmatched in the inflatable market. This is the best inflatable cold plunge on the market for those looking to build holistic communities that practice things like yoga, and breath work, or want to build a higher level of consciousness.

A sweet add-on with Inergize Health’s cold plunge is that it is a brand that is focused on building communities and helping others form healthy habits. Today, Inergize Health is a global ice bath brand promoting optimal wellness practices for all users. Celebrities like Will Smith and Drake have purchased these cold plunges!

FAQs for cold plunges for commercial use

FAQ

Do I need to consult with professionals before using a cold plunge?

Unless you have an underlying health condition you do not need to consult a medical professional to start cold plunging. It should be noted that people who are elderly, pregnant, or susceptible to hypothermia should be cautious before just jumping into the practice. The experience of cold plunging is stressful on the body for some people and it does take some time to get used to it, the water temperature can be very cold.

If you have concerns, it does not hurt to ask but for most people cold plunging is completely safe.

What do you wear in a cold tub?

Men: It is safe to wear swim shorts and underwear in a cold plunge. Please wear underwear though. It is optional to wear a tight-fitting athletic shirt while plunging (something like a rash guard works) but it is not mandatory.

Women: It is safe to wear a swimsuit while going for a cold plunge. You can also wear a tight-fitting athletic shirt if that it what you want to do.

Is a cold plunge worth it?

The experience of cold plunging is worth it to most people that are looking to take their health to the next level and boost their mental fortitude. There are a number of benefits that you can get from just a 2-minute cold plunge each morning. We personally love the practice but understand that it is not meant for everyone, so try it for yourself and come to your own conclusion! You can plunge without having to buy one.

Can anyone do a cold plunge?

Just about anyone can cold plunge. If you are pregnant or have underlying health conditions you should consult a doctor before doing it.

What is the best cold plunge for commercial use?

The best cold plunge for commercial use is the tubs from Plunge (review) or Blue Cube (review). The choice of which one you go with depends on your budget and how particular about the specs of the system you want.
