O2 Trainer Testimonials

Bas,

Asthma has ruled my life since childhood keeping me from playing any type of organized sports. In my adult years, with daily maintenance medication and 4 inhaler puffs a day I had gotten it under control well enough so I could live a normal life. Now I've replaced the inhaler with my O2 Trainer and am experiencing the strongest cardio of my life.

I decided to try BJJ right before turning 43 and found I couldn't even do the simple 10 minute warm-up without my inhaler, then another puff after technique drills, then yet another for rolling. Despite all the puffs, I would still gas out within 2 minutes sparring and looked like a fish out of water trying to get my breath. Anyone who has asthma attacks knows how scary and embarrassing it can be. Yes, I was out of shape, but class after class my jiu-jitsu was improving but my endurance wasn't, until I got my O2 Trainer.

I started with 1 set of 12 inhalations/exhalations on level 1 twice a day. Honestly, I would get light headed so I did it sitting down and was smart enough to know when to take a break. After a week I moved to level 5, 4 sets of 12, twice per day, and I began to see the change. I didn't need my inhaler until a few minutes into rolling. Now, two months later, I use level 13, 4 sets of 12, twice a day instead of my inhaler! I train the full hour class without taking a puff, and can roll for 15 minutes without an asthma attack. Sure, I gas out like anyone would, but my recovery is much faster.

I'm taking baby steps with my cardio because I know my body and the fear of losing my breath is still there, but eventually I'll start using my O2 Trainer during warm-ups. For now, I am ecstatic with the results I'm experiencing. The O2 Trainer is a permanent part of my daily asthma treatment and maintenance routine, replacing my inhaler completely.

Thank you Bas and to your team who put the O2 Trainer together! Without it, I really don't think I would be enjoying BJJ nearly as much and may have even quit. Godspeed sir, and party on. OSSSSSS!

Hey, i am 15 years old and my name is Ron. I was diagnosed with Exercise Induced asthma when i was 6. i was not able to breathe and i would get asthma attacks and start wheezing whenever i ran or worked out with my friends at school. i tried out kung-fu when i was 7 and i loved it, but i would always use my inhaler at least twice during training and i would take several pills, but i continued on with it for 2 more years. i then got into Muay Thai kickboxing when i was 12 and it became my life! i loved i! but my asthma kept me from being the best i could be. i stayed with it though for 3 years and i am still doing it! Just one month ago i saw a O2 Trainer being used at my gym and i wanted one so bad. so i saved up for it and bought one. i have now been using ut for a month and haven't used my inhaler at all during trainng which for me is 3 hours of Interval training, cardio and bag work with of course a couple breaks. i have been able to breathe a lot better and have my life again. It really works! I am so happy with the O2 Trainer!! Not only does it help me breathe again but i also play a little guitar, and i sing just a bit, and it helped a lot with my voice! I love it! Thank You so much Bas!!

“I noticed a difference with the O2 Trainer after the first few times I used it. The O2 is like walking up hill with weights on when I train and then racing downhill with ease when I play.  I didn't think my lung capacity could get any better but the O2 Trainer has taken it to a whole new level.  I'm able to put a lot more air through the horn and effortlessly hold notes longer. I would recommend this to all wind instrument musicians, vocalists and any professionals who rely on their lungs.”

I've been using the O2 Trainer for a few months now and have found it
extremely helpful with cardio vascular indurance and lung capacity.
Incorporating the O2 Trainer into my bicycling and running routine has
had great results and allows me to maximize my cardio conditioning so
I can get the most out of every workout. I would definitely recommend
the O2 Trainer if you're looking to improve and get that extra boost
when it comes to cardio and conditioning!

About a month ago I was gifted with a set of Bas Rutten's O2 trainers, one for myself and one for my husband.  At first we looked at the little holes kinda funny and spent much of our first couple workouts laughing at each other with this thing in our mouths. It did not take long for either of us to realize what a difference it was making.

I have been overweight after having my kids and trying very hard to maximize my workouts with something to show for it. I take Zumba Dance 3 days a week and weight train the other two. As soon as I added the O2 trainer to my regimen, my results have really started to show. The lung stamina that I now have has made a world of difference!  The fact is I am not only dancing, I am laughing and singing at the same time! It's a far cry from the huffing and puffing I was doing just to keep up! Now it's more like shimmy-shimmy Boom! Boom! Wooo! HA! I am so happy with the new vigor the O2 Trainer has allowed me.

My husband is a life long Asthma sufferer and he was extremely skeptical of any restrictions to his breathing. At first it was really uncomfortable for him but before long he was working his way down in sizes; Strengthening his lungs just like any other part of his body.  His breathing is now as much a part of his workout as the weight lifting itself. Always knowing breathing was important, but never really being able to take a deep breath has always been a hindrance.  He gets more out of his workout now with the breathing under control.  More repetition, more stamina, more control and more results.

We are both so happy with our O2 Trainers and highly recommend them.  The difference it has made shows not only in our varied workouts, but also in our every day life.  Brilliant Idea, Thank you.

This device is quite interesting, and it works. It is surprisingly well made, and is simple to figure out how to use it. One must try it a few times, to get used to the feel, but that happened pretty quickly with me. I compete in short distance running and climbing events, and the ability to process air is of paramount importance when racing. This device does what it says: it strengthens the lungs and diaphragm. It is not for hypoxic / altitude training, but then the maker does not claim so.

After a few weeks use, I have noticed an increased ability to push myself in anaerobic training, and I believe that the Trainer is responsible for the improvement. Finally, I lost a few of the pieces, and customer service promptly responded and agreed to send me those pieces free of charge. Can't ask for more!

I recently used the Bas Rutten O2 Trainer during two workouts. On the 3rd day, I trained without the device. To my surprise, my breathing seemed more relaxed and efficient. I was not looking for this to happen, and I was really surprised to experience positive results after only two days.  As a result, I had to ask myself how this could happen. After some serious thought, I came to the following conclusion...

For me, using the O2 Trainer for those first two workouts prompted me to breath deeper during the 3rd workout when I did not use the device. It was like having a coach make an adjustment in my running form so that my technique could be improved and my training could be a little more efficient.

Furthermore, the O2 Trainer was comfortable and simple to use. I also know that Bas designed it so that it will be easy to adjust as I become even more conditioned. So, now I look forward to continuing to use the O2 Trainer – and seeing what other surprises its use will have for my training.

I used to get lung infections and have really bad asthma attacks. When I got out of the hospital in the beginning of this year (Feb. 2011) I swore I’d never allow me to get a reason to go back. I spent 10 days there, gained weight and got weak. As soon as I was healthy I joined an MMA gym (Viet Le's Team Assassin) and bought the O2 Trainer.

I use the O2 Trainer every day, and every day my stamina gets better, my work outs last longer and my lungs are stronger - I haven't had to use an inhaler since April. Within the first couple days I immediately felt better. I talk louder, run faster and work harder with less fatigue and I feel great.

I went from being able to work out for maybe an hour to having almost unlimited stamina. My muscles give out before my lungs or my mind quits. I have a confidence that I didn't know I needed in knowing that I’m not going to gas out. It helps me as a bouncer and in everyday life.

Thanks Bas for one more round and thank God for one more day!

For the last 4 to 5 weeks before the use of the trainer I lost 1 lbs. The week that I have implemented the O2 Trainer I lost 3 lbs. I noticed more calories being burned, higher intensity on workouts, more sweat, and longer periods for heart rate to come back down. After creating a base line and looking at my numbers doing the same workouts I do see an increase of calories burned and so on. I am down to 209lbs from last week’s weigh in. Only 10lbs more to break under 200 again.
