Ice cool Ronaldo: Real Madrid star buys -160C Cryotherapy chamber for his house
Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed the secret of his success – chilling out at home.
The Real Madrid star has had his own ‘ice-box’ Cryotherapy chamber fitted.
And with two three-minute sessions a week he has taken his already incredible strength and fitness to another level
Cryotherapy is the practice of exposing the body to extreme temperatures as low as -160C to provoke a process of muscle regeneration and immune-system stimulation.
The chamber is the size of a shower cubicle and is an update on the old post-match tub of ice cold water favoured by former Real Madrid captain Raul Gonzalez.
The chamber costs around €45,000 (£36,000) and according to Spanish paper El Mundo Ronaldo installed the equipment into his La Finca mansion on the outskirts of Madrid after using it in the luxury neighbourhood’s gym.
