It was mid 2020 and Dan, the founder of Brass Monkey, converted a chest freezer into an ice bath. Was it safe? No! Was it problematic? Very. Did it help him at a difficult period in his life? Absolutely, invaluable. He felt like a different person to the one that climbed in only a couple of minutes before—jumping in whenever he got a moment. Then he wondered, how many other people could benefit from having a safe way of accessing ice cold water?
Nature is the best source of cold – the sea, a beautiful river, a serene waterfall, do it whenever you can (safely!), but most people don’t have that nearby, and neither did Dan. He also noticed that the “ice baths” in the market didn’t make ice and looked crappy. Shocking! That’s when the idea for Brass Monkey was born.
