A Primal lifestyle is all about giving your body the inputs it needs to thrive. I intend to stay vibrant, strong, and active well into old age, and I want the same for all of my readers as well.
Appropriate hormetic stress is one of those crucial inputs. Hormetic stressors are things like exercise, sun exposure, intermittent fasting, and mild caloric exposure. They tell the body, “Hey, life is full of challenges. Better get as strong and nimble as possible so we can face whatever the outside world throws at us!”
Hot and cold therapy are also hormetic stressors that have become an indispensable part of my routine. They both offer an impressive array of benefits, including improved cardiovascular function and insulin sensitivity, but I appreciate them mostly for the mental boost I get. With cold exposure in particular, I feel a noticeable increase in focus and acuity after a plunge. Nothing beats cold water immersion for the rush you get from making yourself do something that’s difficult in the moment but that feels so good afterward.
I’ve recently stepped up my cold water immersion game with the addition of a Plunge (cold tub) from the company of the same name. This technology allows me to regulate the water temperature to my exact specifications. I like a little cooler in the morning and warmer (but still plenty cold) in the evening. Because it’s at my house, there’s no excuse for not getting it done.
I know a cold plunge tub isn’t something everyone is likely to splurge on for themselves, but now you don’t have to. Plunge generously donated a Plunge tub (a $4,990.00 value!) for me to give away to one member of our community to wrap up our MDA 16th birthday celebration! I’m throwing in a few of my books and a $100 gift card for PrimalKitchen.com to sweeten the deal even more.

Plunge was born out of optimistic vision during a challenging time. In March 2020, COVID-19 shut down founder Michael’s float spas and with his newly found free time, he looked at the cold plunges on the market and found them shockingly expensive. Enlisting the help of his dad, they were determined to create a more affordable option. After countless iterations and improvements, the Plunge was born.
A friendship turned into a powerful partnership when Ryan Duey came on board. Michael and Ryan have a common passion for cold plunging, floating, and building win-win relationships. After building the first 20 Plunges out of Michael’s garage, they have since opened multiple facilities in the Sacramento, California region and are sending Plunges all over the world!
The winner of this sweepstakes will receive a standard Plunge (dimensions below). The Plunge comes with installation and a 1-year warranty.
