Onnit Academy Gym, also known as Defranco’s Gym at Onnit Academy, is an innovative new fitness facility that combines cutting edge technology with a modern version of ancient training techniques using steel maces, steel clubs, and kettlebells. To recover from the high intensity training methods taught there, members and outside customers are invited to use Whole Body Cryotherapy to recover and reduce soreness.
“While cryotherapy has been around since 1978, the method we use is much more advanced,” stated John Wolf, manager and Director of Education at Onnit Academy Gym. “Most people are familiar with sitting in bathtubs full of ice to reduce inflammation after tough workout sessions; what we have is a much friendlier 2-3 minute session that does the same thing.”
Onnit Academy Gym offers Whole Body Cryotherapy using a cutting edge Cryosauna unit. This high tech, single person chamber exposes the users body to extremely low temperatures (approximately -200 to -240 F) in order to stimulate receptors and rapidly decrease skin temperature.
Onnit Academy’s cryotherapy chamber has already been used by a variety of NFL athletes and hopefuls that have taken part in the gym’s Combine Preparation Program developed by Joe Defranco. Professional athletes are acutely aware of the benefits of cryotherapy to reduce recovery time, muscle soreness, and joint pain.
Austin Gym’s Cryosauna Cryotherapy Unit
The Cryosauna unit used at Onnit Academy was developed by Jonas Juehne, M.D., the first physician to bring non-medical cyrotherapy treatments to North America with his company Cryohealth. The research behind cryotherapy is decades deep and covers a variety of topics, including the effects it has on depressive symptoms, inflammatory response, anti-oxidative status, and thermal, circulatory, and neuromuscular responses.

“I can personally attest to the results of cryotherapy,” said Mark de Grasse, Chief Fitness Officer of Onnit Labs. “The Onnit Academy Gym workouts can be pretty tough when you’re throwing around kettlebells, maces, and clubs; after a long week of training it’s always good to boost your recovery for the weekend with a quick 3-minute session in the tank.”
