Pastor Turned MMA Fighter Wins in #FightForGunnar

On Saturday, April 2nd 2016 Dave Bever, pastor at Crosslink Community church arrived at Ohio Cryo to get his final Whole Body Cryotherapy session. ‘Pastor Dave’ was no stranger to the #BlackOctagon; the two had met 11 times previous in the past 3 weeks. And although Dave was quite familiar with the cryotherapy process at this point, the energy that filled Loft #21 at Ohio Cryo that Saturday afternoon was different. It was electric.

About 4 weeks previous, Pastor Dave had embarked on a mission titled the ‘Fight For Gunnar’. Armed with loads of determination, faith and perseverance, Dave began an intense physical and mental training regimen to prepare himself for an MMA fight that was to be held on Saturday, April 2nd that raised money to support one of Dave’s dearest friends Gunnar who at 9 years of age was battling Cancer.

Training 6 or 7 days a week, Pastor Dave would come in with bruises, aches, soreness and the like, using cryotherapy to help him recover along his journey. Dave knew at the time that although he was banged up from an intense training regimen, the pain and soreness that he was experiencing from training was incomparable to what Gunnar had been going through during his battle.

With his friend in mind, Dave trained and trained and trained. And when fight-day Saturday rolled around, Dave understood what the fight meant to him, to Gunnar, to his faith and to his community. Dave knew that by telling Gunnar’s story, by helping to raise awareness for such an amazing cause, by giving all his faith to god and by gathering the community of supporters around himself & Gunnar that he had already won the Fight For Gunnar, no matter what the outcome of the fight would be later that evening.

The first time I spoke to Dave in person I was immediately captivated by his determination, his faith and how genuine of a guy Dave was; I also knew that Dave was an immediate reflection of Gunnar, representing Gunnar’s strength and will power to the best of his abilities.

Dave ended up winning his MMA fight that Saturday night, which was merely a dance that represented an entirely larger theme. A theme of helping others win in life’s battles using love, faith and community.

To Dave and Gunnar: Thank you for allowing your Ohio Cryo family to support you in your journey & fight. We will Never Stop Fighting along your sides.

Cure Jet Lag in Just 3 Minutes with Whole Body Cryotherapy

Jet Laq cryotherapy columbus ohio ohiocryo

There’s nothing worse than battling the lack of energy, stress, anxiety and blanket of detrimental symptoms that accompany a long, strenuous day of flying. Whether you’re flying for work, for pleasure, are a regular flyer or just taking a yearly trip, you’ve probably experienced Jet Lag to some degree. To say that jet lag is debilitating enough to disrupt your day would be an understatement.

In medical terms, “desynchronosis” is exactly what it sounds like — a temporary disorder of ‘de-syncronization’ incurred as a result of air travel across time zones that disrupts the circadian rhythm (or internal clock) that the body uses to regulate and maintain its vital processes. Almost all vital processes of the body are regulated by a circadian internal clock in the suprachiasmatic nucleus, or SCN. Located in the hypothalamus, the SCN contains thousands of nerve cells that are activated by light and send signals throughout the body that directly influence sleep-wake cycles, release of hormones, body temperature and other important processes.

When an individual crosses different time zones, the body’s internal clock becomes disrupted, which leads to disorientation and a number of other debilitating symptoms including lack of energy, mental fogginess, confusion, depression, etc. In fact, excessive disruption of the body’s circadian rhythm have been linked to obesity, diabetes, depression, bipolar disorder and seasonal affective disorder.

So how can you treat jet lag to ensure you don’t suffer from these symptoms? Whole Body Cryotherapy is your answer! During a Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment, internal resetting of the body’s immune and regulating processes occurs as a result of enrichment and detoxification of blood that occurs at the body’s vital organs. And how long does a Whole Body Cryotherapy treatment take, you ask? Only 3 minutes — that’s right… 3 minutes! Spending 3 minutes in the ultra-cool environment inside a cryosauna will help to reset your body’s internal clock and boost your physical energy as well as your mental focus.

So next time you step out of the airport terminal, grab your luggage from baggage claim, and start to feel the detrimental effects of Jet Lag, head to your local cryotherapy treatment center to freeze the bad symptoms away.
