Saunas are located in each locker room.

Some form of sauna bathing has been around since ancient times. It is a traditional heat therapy for the Finnish people. Saunas are everywhere in Finland and are considered a spiritual and social ritual, according to AAA's March 1997 issue of VIA Magazine. Saunas are enjoyed in most countries around the world for the many health and relaxation benefits.

Respiratory Benefits

Saunas are good for the respiratory tract. A study published in the February 2001 issue of the the American Journal of Medicine found that sauna bathing provides relief to patients with chronic bronchitis and asthma.

Cardio Benefits

Taking a 20-minute sauna provides the same cardiovascular benefits as aerobic exercise, according to the National Institutes of Health. Therefore, it is possible to get the same cardiovascular benefits without the sweat of exercise but with a good sweat in the sauna. For physically impaired patients, the sauna can be used as thermal therapy and an alternative to exercise training.
In a 1991 study at the Institute National de la Recherche Scientifique at the University of Montreal in Quebec, researchers found that 20 minutes of sauna bathing increased the metabolism equivalent to 45 minutes of bicycling or swimming.
