“Our second son, Mekan Charles Mashakov Macdonald, was born at 1:39am after a very fast labor. He is 7lbs and 18.5 inches long and very healthy. Selby was amazing and is feeling great. We are still in shock that he’s finally here.”

Sometimes we carry more than what we bargain for.  The torpedoes can be loaded to over 400 lbs each.  Give it a try.

“Jen with random strangers.”

“Hey Steve – Glad I made it to the bay to breakers… I had a great time and was able to run the 7.5 miles without any training! due to the fact that I get a lot of cardio at the IC… pretty nice.  But hey! someone had already detached the t-shirt stub on my ticket… I mean you really gotta run the race in order to wear the t-shirt….  but I’m fine with it… just thought it was funny….  next year I will run in my IC crown and evening gown.

See you soon,
Jenny”

I first started coming to the Ice Chamber about 2 years after our twins were born (2009 or so); IC was near the train tracks, and hadn’t yet moved to behind CostCo.

My partner & I harbored a lot of guilt, at least since our twins arrived, about not working out enough. But guilt did not lead to action, it just compounded paralysis. Out of the blue, we met another couple that relied on Ice to stay fit. We simply copied our friends’ solution, which was to sign up and show up.

I am continually amazed at what Ice trainers manage to squeeze out of me in 45 minutes. They are expert at structuring the time, and the only decision I have to make is to get on the rocket. I show up, and 45 minutes later, it’s almost unbelievable that I’ve exerted myself so much in such a short time.
I’m trained as an experimental psychologist, and I’ve worked for decades in Silivalley as a “behavioral economist.” In brief, the sorts of things I pay attention to are all the non-rational aspects of human choices. Emotions, motivation, habit, unconscious patterns, that’s my beat.
Ice Chamber is an amazing place. Steve is truly a master of physical training. He’s attracted great trainers, loyal students, and created an awesome 21st century version of the ‘gym class.’ Now that I’m grown up, it’s so excellent that gym has became one of the most fun hours of my day.
