Kathryn Butters: Founder, CryoVigor

My NativeAdVantage:


Kathryn Butters is an entrepreneur and the founder of CryoVigor, one of New York City’s premier Cryotherapy clinics. Offering both whole body and spot cryotherapy treatments through the use of our state-of-the-art equipment, our trained staff offers white glove service to ensure your safety and comfort, and answer any questions you might have about cryotherapy.

What do I do best?

I am passionate about my profession and it carries through to my team and my clients can feed off of my energy too.

What makes me the best version of myself?

My mother always said I’m a fighter and survivor and I guess that is true. You have to have grit and determination in the business world and although there will be bumps and some failures along the way, success is ultimately the only option. Setting goals and driving towards them, then setting new goals, never settling. Always open to learn new things. I surround myself with smart people with integrity and learn by observing them. Being in the health and wellness industry is a win-win, I get to help people help themselves and we all feel good in the end.

What are my aspirations?

I want everyone to live the healthiest life they can by being proactive about their own health. We have so much knowledge now about the human body, we can really do so much to affect our own health outcomes. If we feel good inside of our own bodies we live a better life.

My Biggest Success?

I love my family. I was just at the 100th birthday party of my aunt. There was so much love in the air that I was completely energized. Maintaining close personal relationships has been the backbone to my success.

My Most Challenging Moment?

I had experienced a lot of success in business and help a startup become very successful, yet I felt unfulfilled. Even though I was successful on paper, I knew I had to make a career change. When I shifted my focus to helping improve the lives of others, everything clicked.

My Motto?

Always act with integrity. If you live your life with integrity, most things will turn out well.

My Favorite People/Role Models?

Mom and Dad. They raised 7 kids together and instilled in me a hard work ethic, to be respectful, honest and have integrity. My aunt---as mentioned above, she just turned 100 yo and still a hoot. Tom Brady. He is simply a winner. People doubted that as a 6th round draft pick that he would even make a professional football team, but he worked hard and is now arguably the best quarterback to have played the game and still playing at 40 yo.

My Favorite Places/Destinations?

Too many to mention. I love to travel and see new things. Love big cities (NYC, London, Paris) Country (Berkshires, Lakes, Napa, Tuscany) and remote islands (Maldives). Love to be near water, whether a lake or by the ocean. But also love getting up on Saturday mornings and going to my local farmers market…sad the season is almost over.

My Favorite Products/Objects?

My grill.  I love to grill just about anything and everything all year round. When we looked to buy a condo in the city it was a number 1 requirement.

Various apps for the iPhone. It amazes me that I can virtually run my business from my phone (but not sure that’s really a good thing lol).

My Current Passions?

Well since CryoVigor is still in its infancy, this is my current passion. Making sure I deliver a product and service that people enjoy. I still enjoy seeing first timers take their first plunge in the -200F Cryo Sauna. On the more personal side, I love sports, right now football, scuba diving, skiing (water or snow), Yoga, and enjoying good food and wine with friends and family.
