Perspire History

Perspire Sauna Studio began in Costa Mesa, CA back in 2010 with the sole purpose of bringing the benefits of infrared saunas to the community. Owners Lee Braun and Ken Arsenian experienced first-hand the benefits of the 40 minute infrared sauna session and knew the service would take off in the health and wellness environment of Orange County, CA.

Then called “SuiteSweat Sauna Studio” members quickly took to the unique and efficient spa service.  After 5 years of perfecting the system and growing the membership base, the newly renamed “Perspire Sauna Studio” began the process of opening the second location in Laguna Niguel, CA.  In only 9 short months the third studio was underway inside an LA Fitness in Huntington Beach, CA. In late 2016 the sauna studio within LA Fitness opened to an excited fan base. Perspire Sauna Studio had provided hundreds of thousands of sessions to Orange County but wanted more communities to experience the incredible health benefits.

In order to grow Perspire opened up to franchising in the first quarter of 2018 and on March 3, 2018 Perspire signed the first franchisee.  Newport Beach is slated to be the first franchise location, coming late 2018.
