Sweat + Glo, an Infrared Sauna Studio Opening Monday in Hoboken

Sauna lovers, this one’s for you. Maridian Properties announced the opening of 16 new businesses in Hoboken in its commercial rental property locations, including Sweat + Glo, a new infrared sauna studio coming to Hoboken in April. Sure, Hoboken’s no stranger to a good sauna, but this would be a studio that specializes in the sauna experience. We had a chance to chat with the owners about what locals can expect — and it will be opening Monday, April 19th. Read on to learn what we know about Sweat + Glo opening in Hoboken at 80 River Street.

Sweat + Glo’s Journey to Hoboken

Hoboken’s first infrared sauna studio, Sweat + Glo, was founded by Hoboken residents Rachel and Justin Helfman. Rachel works in the advertisement industry and Justin works for the federal government. Sweat+Glo has been a dream of theirs that they’re now making a reality.

“I have always been passionate about utilizing infrared saunas as part of my health and wellness routine. I quickly recognized a whitespace in Hoboken when I was driving to Jersey City that could be utilized as an infrared sauna. Hoboken has some of the best fitness studios, nutritionists, and med spas, so we wanted to open Sweat + Glo to complement one’s wellness journey,” Rachel told Hoboken Girl.

While there isn’t an official opening date as of yet, Rachel said they plan on opening in mid-April of 2021.

The Services

Sweat + Glo offers two specific sauna experiences. The first is the “Quickie”, which is a 30-minute express sweat session that still allows you to experience all of the benefits of an Infrared session within a shorter amount of time.

The second is the “Power Hour”, which is a 60-minute session that aims to rest and recharge your body in a personal sweat suite. Burn up to 600 calories, sweat out toxins, and elevate your wellbeing with this session.

Customers can book one-off sessions or purchase one of the packages. The “New Client Special” offers three Quickie sessions for $99. For a one-time sesh, a Quickie costs $40 and a Power Hour costs $65.

Real sauna-goers can opt for the package of 20 Quickies for $600 or 20 Power Hours for $975.

Sweat + Glo has two types of saunas in-house. The “single-user”, designed for a single user, the sauna is a cozy little oasis to cash in on some me-time. The “dual-user” is designed to fit up to two people. Guests have the option to enjoy the sauna session with a partner or take advantage of the extra room to lay back and relax. All packages {besides the special intro offer} expire 1 year after the date of purchase.

The studio does not have showers but does have products on-site to give you an express refresh once you’re finished.

If you were wondering about what to wear, Sweat + Glo explains, “Whatever you’re most comfortable in! You can either wrap yourself in the towel provided, wear your swimsuit or underwear, or wear nothing at all.”

COVID-19 Precautions

In regard to COVID-19 safety protocols, Rachel explained, “Upon entering the studio, your temperature will be checked with a touchless thermometer. Each room will have an air purifier that will filter and cleans the air between each appointment. During the 15 minutes between each appointment, the saunas will be thoroughly disinfected with a UV wand and cleanser.”

Additionally, Sweat + Glo is an appointment-only studio, with no walk-ins permitted.

Benefits Of An Infrared Sauna

Sweat + Glo shared some of the benefits of an infrared sauna, including positive effects on the body, skin, mood, and sleep.

Body: Increased circulation, detoxification, weight loss, and immune system boosting are all benefits of infrared therapy.

Skin: Infrared therapy stimulates collagen production while healing your skin from the surface to the deeper layers, leading to long-term skin benefits.

Mood: Using an infrared sauna provides stress relief in numerous ways. It’s a warm, private space that allows for minimal outside distractions.

Sleep: You can hack your body’s thermoregulation process by warming your body in an infrared sauna then allowing it to cool down after. This quick cool-down speeds up the process for your brain to fall asleep.
