Pros of Cold Plunging
We like to always start off with the good news first. Here is a list of Pros of doing the practice of cold plunging or just owning your own:
- Health Benefits Associated with Cold Plunging

There have been many studies showing the health (both physical and mental) benefits of cold plunging. Cold Plunging is a great way to take your health to the next level and is perfect for athletes or even people who just love to work out.
Cons of Cold Plunging
The cons that are associated with cold plunging, in general, are the following:
- Most Tubs are quite expensive
- Not Handicap Friendly
- Because of the cost, most people do not even give it a try
- There is a lot of research that goes into the buying process
The cons that we have seen from many devices mainly have to do with price. The vast majority of people do not have $1,200 – $5,000 to invest right away into a cold plunge. Many people do decide to finance the tubs that they purchase but it is still a pretty costly thing to get into.
If you wanted to avoid buying your own cold plunge you can always support local businesses that have them inside their centers! Typically, a recovery session is somewhere around $50 so if you want to just give the practice a try before deciding if it’s something you want to bring home, you high encourage yourself to do so.
Whatever it is you decide to do, you should do your homework behind cold plunging. It is something that is actually really cool to learn about. The process of writing all these blog posts has really deepened our knowledge of the subject. You can find everything about cold plunging right on Grapplers Graveyard!
