My name is Luke and I am the Chief Plunger here at Tucson Cold Plunge. I started learning about the benefits of cold water exposure about 3 years ago from “Own the Day” by Aubrey Marcus. After a little research and accomplishing my first plunge, I was hooked. As a jiu jitsu enthusiast, the recovery benefits were very appealing not only for the physical, but for mental training as well. I began making my own ice baths at home with a plastic tub from Home Depot, eventually graduating to a large tin horse trough. I fell in love with this experience and sharing it with friends.

 

Plunging has made me a better, more resilient human and that’s why I’m passionate about sharing it with the Tucson community. The plunge is challenging but the feelings of accomplishment, strength, and resiliency are well worth the small amount of work. Stay cold Tucson!

Two Lukes are better than one! I'm a Tucson native and U of A alumni currently serving in the Air Force. I first heard of cold therapy from Wim Hoff and was impressed by his ability to spend over 60 minutes in an ice bath. I began implementing the Wim Hoff Method breathing, cold showers, and soaks in natural cold pools to sharpen my mind, increase resilience, and decrease stress. 

I'm passionate about cold plunges because in just a few minutes, you can completely reset, recharge, and be ready to engage the next challenge. The cold is a brutal teacher that has helped me tune into my inner wisdom and given me the courage to do what is right, not what is easy. Getting into the cold water is now something that I crave and helps me slow down from the busy chaos of life as a modern human. Much love, stay frosty!

I was born and raised in one of the iciest places in Arizona, aka, Flagstaff. I came to Tucson to go to U of A for a business degree, but after some 3 years of soul searching, I realized a business degree was not the best to make the lasting impact I wanted to, so I shifted my focus to something I believed could make a difference for people and the planet; mushrooms!

While I was going to school for microbiology and organic chemistry (on the way to mycology) I was diagnosed with cancer in my pineal gland, which caused sudden loss of consciousness and double vision. After one year of extensive treatment, I kicked cancers ass! After a brief time of celebration, I realized my fight was only beginning. A few months after my treatment, I noticed that, despite regular physical therapy, I was having greater and greater trouble doing everyday things like stepping up on to curbs and even walking. My nerves were starting to die. No doctors could tell me why this was happening, so I knew I needed to take my health into my own hands. Mushrooms, diet and exercise definitely helped, but they only seemed to slow the progress of my degeneration.

 

Finally I discovered Wim Hof, and the success he’s had with helping people no one else new how to help. I did his breathing practice first thing in the morning for two weeks, and while I was playing with my dog, I noticed my condition was finally improving! It was only a matter of time before I tried ice baths, and quite obviously, I am a huge fan! While I’m still on my healing journey, I can definitely say that exposing my body to the stress of the ice not only makes me feel alive, but it helps me get more out of a life I can no longer take for granted. I am so excited to be able to share this feeling with you!

My name is Vanessa. The passion for care that exists within this community is truly unencumbered. Personally, I found that really living meant giving what I had to offer to others. However, I realized performing acts of service could easily be removed by an inability to do so. Life is funny like that, forcing us to slow down, shed false ego and find balance. That’s when I began investing in my own health, in order to advocate for others. 

 

For me, cold plunging came at a time in my life when I was overcoming PTSD. I fell in love with the clarity I gained and the focus that helped me in meditation and performance of Bhakti yoga. Mentally, the cold was all I could ask for. There was so much I could share, so suddenly. Sometime after this discovery, I was hit with another shock from reality. After nearly losing my life in a car wreck by a drunk driver, the sobering sensation that cold plunging provided was completely profound in my recovery and still is.

 

Bhagavad-Gita 6.7 

For one who has conquered the mind, the Supersoul is already reached, for he has attained tranquillity. To such a man happiness and distress, heat and cold, honor and dishonor are all the same. 

This experience is truly special and I hope to see you share it with your loved ones.
