We had to get extra creative this year with our Polar Plunges to provide a fun and safe experience for all. With the new ways to Plunge we wanted to demonstrate how each of these work but of course, socially distanced. Meet our newest Plungers, Barbie and Friends!

Here are some ideas to get you started!

  • Toss a bucket of ice water on yourself while doing your favorite TikTok dance
  • Take a chilly dip into a bathtub full of ice
  • Take a kiddie pool Plunge in your backyard
  • Swimsuit snow angels
  • Winter water balloon fight
  • Visit a local cryo-chamber, like our friends at Denver Sports Recovery for a real deep, therapeutic Plunge. Click here to see this Polar Plunger’s cryo-chamber experience to help you get ready for yours!
