The Power of Intentional Discomfort

For the last 5 months we’ve hosted a small meetup at our clinic, Alessi Functional Health - Tampa

What we love about this we invite guys to engage in cold 🥶
plunging, infrared sauna and functional training in the Florida heat.

About 8 years ago I started on my own path of intentional discomfort…

How did it start?

Cold showers for 30 seconds. I did that for a few years because someone introduced it to me. That has evolved over the years into many different micro routines, but that was the start. 30 seconds went to 1 minute…1 minute went to three over a period of time and now I’m plunging.

But here’s the story…

I used to have a very bad temper. I’d lash out and struggled to keep my emotions in check… It was an issue. I always felt that it was probably genetic and it was something I couldn’t control… I was wrong…

Today, I almost have 100% awareness of my emotions and most of the time I’m able to check them down and process.


The super power of exposing yourself to intentional discomfort…
You aren’t a makeup of genetics… You’re a makeup of habits.

Step into the uncomfortable today… I promise you, it’ll change your life!
