Using “The Oxygen Advantage”© program, your sports and exercise performance can be improved with two different approaches:
- By understanding how oxygen is released throughout the body, and by improving everyday breathing habits so that body oxygenation becomes more efficient.
- By practicing specially-designed breath hold exercises which provide the same benefits as high altitude training.
Both methods work by increasing the amount of oxygen that can be delivered to your muscles and heart during exercise, allowing you to become healthier, faster, fitter and stronger. The Oxygen Advantage program is based on research supported by over 350 medical papers and studies, and my aim is to raise awareness of this empowering information in the hope that it will make a difference to the well-being and performance of people at any level of fitness.
Author of “Oxygen Advantage”© (Harper Collins, September 2015), The proprietary Oxygen Advantage Program is an extension of McKeown’s extensive work, combining simulation of high altitude training and specifically-formulated exercises which empower athletes and non-athletes to improve their performance and exercise safely, legally and at no cost. For the first time, athletes are afforded a reliable and accurate means to measure their progress using the Body Oxygen Level Test, to address poor breathing habits, to understand in simple terms how oxygen is released to working muscles, and to practice breath hold exercises to naturally increase EPO production.
