“Founded in 2020, our aim at Unbounded is to provide an unparalleled experience of living. Unbounded Well not only gives people the opportunity to interact with the outdoors, but our aim is to bring nature into the city and motivate people to step out of their comfort zone in a healthy and safe way,” says founder of Unbounded, Nick McNaught.
The seasoned entrepreneur shares more about the first-hand mental benefit of the existing therapies. “There is a sense of confidence and courage that comes with embracing the full experience. It is an exhilarating challenge to overcome the discomfort and remind yourself that you can do hard things. Besides building one’s sense of self, other physical benefits include reducing global systemic inflammation, releasing cold shock proteins that repair synapses in the brain, mobilizing brown fat (BAT), improving circulation and respiratory function, activating up to 300% norepinephrine and 500% adrenaline, among other things.”
Nick explains further. “Although there are many benefits, there are also contraindications and if someone has any heart or blood pressure issues, or is pregnant, then it is advisable that they see their doctor first and get clearance before trying cold exposure.”

You will get to enjoy traditional Scandinavian Spruce saunas, firepit lounges, A-1 cold plunge wells, the geodesic dome studio in the form of supported sessions and exclusive member events.
It was certainly a thrilling adventure for us. We visited the serene location and cycled through the cold tub session and sauna, gathered at the outdoor fire pit lounge, and relaxed in the dimly lit meditation dome complemented with soothing live music. Let’s just say your energy levels will get boosted and the relaxing outcome is certain. It was so absorbing taking part in the breathing exercises, mindset, and focus training with cold exposure.
