Many of the businesses which are using Cocoon PODs do not offer showers on site. Many clients choose to use the Cocoon Fitness POD after a workout, weight management, or a wellness exercise session service and prefer to simply towel dry and wear sweat clothes after their sessions before returning home to shower. Many businesses also offer clean towels for clients to wipe down, and some even offer a spray bottle with citrus scent or tea tree oil to enhance their wipe downs.

We recommend beginning with lowest active-exercise programs and lower temperatures and shorter sessions.
It is recommended that a clean towel (bath or beach-towel size) or disposable towel be used and laid on and a 2nd towel over the body when using the Cocoon Fitness POD System. This helps maintain a more hygienic environment users can use and wear typical comfortable work-out exercise clothes. Users should be instructed to self-clean and wipe down the Cocoon Fitness POD at the end of each session (i. e., appropriate cleaner and paper towels should be provided to users, who should be cautioned to refrain from spraying the cleaner directly on the unit heaters near the foot area).
With the Cocoon POD almost all features can be turned on-off and used separately or in personal, customized combinations together. By example, you can use the active-exercise system with or without the heat sources. This allows you to experience the different modalities for the ultimate in healthy lifestyle wellness exercise activities, synergy and efficiency.
