What the Plunge team are listening to

We asked some of the Plunge team which tracks they have got on repeat right now to prepare them for a cold-water plunge.

It Only Takes a Minute (Take That) picked by Hansa: “It’s the perfect song to listen to when you’re in cold water. Cold-water plunging only takes a minute!”

Love Spreads (The Stone Roses) picked by George: “No matter what mood I’m in, the iconic guitar intro always gets me motivated to tackle the cold water.”

Stop the Rock (Apollo 440) picked by Tommy: “I’m still new to cold-water plunging so I need a song that’s going to get me dancing on the way to the tub, and this does just that.”

All these songs and more are included in our ‘Plunge Team Picks’ playlist which you can listen to here.
