Ice Barrel CEO Wyatt Ewing shares his favorite health and wellness products.

Wyatt Ewing Health Stack

Welcome to Health Stack, a series where founders, operators and experts share their favorite health and wellness products, gear, apps, and routines…

Wyatt Ewing founded Ice Barrel in 2017 after realizing that a 60- to 80-hour work week in corporate aviation was taking a toll on his physical and mental well-being.

Now, as CEO of Ice Barrel, Wyatt leads a “fast-paced life” that is “demanding” and requires him to be focused and achieve optimal performance every day.

Though the structure and times of his workouts may change day-to-day due to family and work requirements, certain routines are a must. “I strive to be consistent with them so that I can live a meaningful life,” says Wyatt, who is currently on a mission to complete every CrossFit workout ever prescribed and record them all. “This year, I participated in my first CrossFit Open and am currently working towards completing all the Hero workouts,” he adds.

Wyatt’s current wellness goal is to spend more time in the sun and get grounded in nature. “I like to have my morning coffee outside, walk the kids to the bus stop, and spend time outside with the animals. We raise chickens and beef to eat as organically as possible,” Wyatt explains.

Here’s Wyatt to share his Health Stack:

Ice Barrel

“I practice contrast therapy each evening using my Ice Barrel and Sisu Sauna. The session consists of three rounds, with 15 minutes in the sauna, followed by 4 minutes in the Ice Barrel. I always end on cold.”

Sisu Sauna

“Sisu Sauna is a great product for an entry-level sauna experience. It is made in the USA from high-quality wood, is easy to install, and utilizes a HUUM heater. I prefer a HUUM heater over a wood-burning sauna, so I don’t have to start the fire before each use.”

Max Effort Muscle Tri-Blend Protein with raw milk

“My favorite protein shake is the Max Effort Muscle Tri-Blend Protein mixed with raw milk. The Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate Peanut Butter flavors are my favorite. It tastes great and aids in muscle recovery and performance.”
