Cubs fans are still glowing from the team's recent World Series win. For 108 years, the Cubs had been unable to return to the World Series and win. For over 100 years, the team had struggled while their fans dealt with the disappointment. So what changed?
In 2016, the Cubs opened up a new state-of-the-art training facility and clubhouse that included upgraded training and recovery facilities. Among the new amenities is a float tank that the players have been using for relaxation and injury recovery.
Time spent in a float tank has long been found to help athletes relax and recover. Allowing the body to spend time weightless helps relieve pressure on muscle and joints -- speeding up the healing process. The tank also aids users in finding a meditative state -- something that can make athletes smarter and more effective on the field.
So is the float tank the secret to the Cubs breaking the Curse of the Billy Goat?
Of course, we can't attribute everything to the tank. But we can certainly assume the benefits were helpful in the preparation for the Cubs legendary 2016 season. Congrats Cubs!
