CrossFit athletes are mimicking training tools used by many of the world’s leading strength and conditioning experts. The use of the KewlFit targeted 58°F/14°C Cooling Vests have begun to pop up in Boxes across the country. These vests are being used similar to how the USA Cycling Team, Alberto Contador and the Dutch National Soccer Team are using them, by keeping the core cooler before, during and after workouts.
CrossFit athletes are pre-cooling during their warm-up and keeping cool throughout the WOD with the help of the vest. They are also post WOD Cooling at a safe and targeted temperature allowing them to be quickly recharged for another workout or to take on the rest of the day.
The research behind keeping cool shows many benefits including increased endurance, better overall performance and the ability to push harder throughout workouts. This is music to the CrossFit Athletes ears as many push their bodies on a daily basis for that PR. The KewlFit Cooling Vest uses a targeted 58°F/14°C temperature which research shows is ideal to maximize the gradient to reduce heat storage without invoking any vasoconstriction response.

Cooling the body down, rather than building up a sweat, could be an effective way of losing weight, a new research from Harvard University revealed.
The Scientists concluded that brown fat – a “good” fat that burns calories – is activated by the cold. Brown Fat is found naturally in humans and consumes calories to generate heat. The activation of this tissue through cool temperatures is known as non-shivering thermogenesis and could be the key in the fight against obesity.
The team at the Joslin Diabetes Center at Harvard University was successfully able to activate brown fat with a 14°C Cooling Vest. They had also tested the effects of the over the counter weight loss drug Ephedrine but found it was not activating the tissue. Lead researcher Dr. Aaron Cypess said that “this was the first time a study revealed that ephedrine does not turn on brown fat”.
Dr. Cypess said harnessing the cold effects could help reduce calories without the side effects associated with ephedrine.
“Mild cold exposure stimulates (brown fat) energy expenditure with fewer other systemic effects, suggesting that cold activates specific sympathetic pathways,” he said.
“Agents that mimic cold activation of (brown fat) could provide a promising approach to treating obesity while minimizing systemic effects,” he said.
Dr. Cypess would conclude the article by saying one method to stimulate brown adipose tissue as we did in the study would be to design a cooling vest that people can wear to help them lose weight. We at TechNiche International have done just that, created and designed a Cooling Vest set at the same targeted 14°C and will maintain this temperature for 2-3 hours.

The KewlFit targeted temperature 58°F/14°C Cooling Vest by TechNiche International is changing the way athletes workout. Athletes from a wide range of sports are reporting increases in endurance, performance and workout intensity.
Athletes from a wide range of sports are turning to the KewlFit 58°F/14°C Performance Cooling Vest to help them throughout their training. Conditioning athletes are reporting increases in their overall endurance as well as improvements later in their cardio exercises. Strength training athletes are reporting bigger lifts and the ability to finish sets stronger than ever before. These reports coincide with the academic research that states cooling the body at a targeted temperature allows athletes to have increases in overall performance, endurance and workout comfort.
The KewlFit targeted temperature Performance Cooling Vest is changing the way athletes train both during the season as well as in the offseason. Athletes are now able to pre-cool before games and exercises at the recommended 58°F temperature which has shown to not invoke a vasoconstriction response like ice vests do. The research agrees that athletes that pre-cool are able to accomplish more before heat fatigue is reached than athletes that don’t. This results in better workouts, improved conditioning and an athlete that is more ready for competition.
The KewlFit Performance Cooling Vest also allows athletes to wear during actual exercise and training for improvements in intensity, workout comfort and overall performance. Keeping the core cooler during exercise enables athletes to keep a lower core temperature while allowing the working muscles to work through the training. This results in better overall workouts and the ability to finish cardio sets at a better rate.

The Las Vegas Sports Performance Gym recently wrote about their use of the 58°F KewlFit Performance Cooling Vest as many of their athletes are using it before, during and after training.
"As the temperatures climb in Vegas everyone is trying to stay cool. We’ve introduced a new tool to the gym, the KewlFit phase change cooling vest. These vests can either be worn as a pre cooling device before a game or race. Or as Bill and Jerry are using them here during a strength workout. Research shows that wearing the vest can increase performance levels by 10-20%. The vest use 4 cooling pads that are frozen and then place in pockets inside the form fitting vest. When wearing the vest you still have great range of motion and they do not impede you in any way. Both guys gave the vest a thumbs up.
