Florian Jozefzoon says he and his Brentford team-mates are being given the ice treatment by the club's chefs as they battle through the heat of pre-season.
The Dutchman has been impressed with the Bees squad as they set our their targets for the new campaign, and he wants to be a big part of what they want to achieve.
Former PSV Eindhoven man Jozefzoon has certainly recognised the efforts of everyone behind the scenes, calling Brentford a "family club".
And there have been a number of gruelling sessions under boss Dean Smith and his management team so far.
"It's heavy, like it should be. It's painful everyday but we benefit later. We're suffering but have to get through it," said Jozefzoon, who came through Ajax's academy.
"I think it's really important that you come together and set your goals for the season and do everything possible to start well.
"Sometimes you don't want to do it but you know why. If a pre-season isn't hard you're going to be in trouble.
"It's good for us to train hard and set our focus. Hopefully we get a nice season.
"The rest of the squad is looking sharp, really sharp. We keep ourselves motivated. If someone is having a difficult time we help them through it.
"The cooks are helping us. It's hot so we get popsicles. It's a small club but it's a family and I like it.
"It's normal that it's hot in pre-season. It's normal. We get used to it."
