Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT)
What is Maxx O2 Oxygen Therapy?
Exercise with oxygen therapy is when we breathe in higher concentrations of oxygen during exercise. Oxygen generators are devices that take room air and compress it before removing argon and nitrogen from its content as a method for delivering four times the level of O2 gas into your lungs while you’re working out!
What is Maxx O2 Altitude Therapy?
This system also offers an altitude simulator that allows the user to switch from 94 percent oxygen to 14 percent (which is adjustable from sea level to 25,000 feet), producing enhanced benefits from the body’s adaptation to exercising at Altitude.
Is Maxx O2 altitude therapy for you?
If you are looking for altitude training, then the Maxx O2 altitude is for you, offering oxygen levels as low as 14% for those who want the experience of how it feels to train at 25,000 feet of Altitude and as high as 94% oxygen for those who want the benefits of pure oxygen cardio experience.

Health Benefits of EWOT Altitude Therapy
Improves Physical Performance
Altitude training can produce increases in speed, strength, endurance, and recovery by maintaining altitude exposure for a significant period of time. For example, a study using simulated altitude exposure for 18 days, yet training closer to sea level, showed performance gains were still evident 15 days later.
Increases Oxygen Circulation
Exercise with oxygen therapy is a great way to get your body healthy and feeling good. It increases the amount of blood circulating your veins, arteries, and even into smaller capillaries that make up 74% of our circulatory system, creating more O2 in cells processing millions upon millions of biochemical reactions every day.
Increased Aerobic Capacity
The high altitude training can also increase your maximal oxygen intake or VO2 max. This is the highest amount of oxygen that your body can consume during intense exercise. A higher level will help improve endurance levels so you can train with more intensity and push harder when you need to.
Restores Blood Flow
Restoring the flow of oxygen-rich blood and optimizing your capillary function can be very beneficial for those looking to get more out of their workouts. Oxygen therapy, such as EWOT (Exercise With Oxygen Therapy), increases circulation while reducing swelling in constricted capillaries, promoting greater efficiency within our cells.
Inflammation is the natural defense of your immune system against tissue damage. When you exercise, inflammation serves to protect your body from injury and can help you recover faster. Oxygen therapy (EWOT) also decreases inflammation, speeds up recovery time, and prevents future damage.
Increases the Production of ATP
Exercise with oxygen therapy allows every cell to receive the life-giving molecule, oxygens. Exercise with Oxygen therapy increases the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which acts as a source of fuel within cells and is vital for cellular function.
What Experts Are Saying About EWOT Therapy
“My name is Taryn, I’m a Naturopath and recently I have been suffering sciatic pain running the length of my leg caused by a bulging disc in my lumbar spine. I have also experienced sluggish energy levels impacting my cognitive function. I have heard a little about oxygen therapy before and was intrigued to try it out to see how I would feel. I was unsure as to the amount of exercise I needed to do as I have not been exercising on a regular basis since the injury. However, to my surprise the 15 minutes on the exercise bike wasn’t taxing on my body at all, it actually made me feel extremely energized. The session consisted of short 30 second sprints on high altitude air followed by a recovery period of 90 seconds receiving high oxygen air. I instantly felt better after the session and this light energized feeling has lasted all day! I didn’t feel a slump in my energy levels throughout the afternoon and felt switched on all day. More so, I had negligible amounts of pain in my back and leg and was able to move freely in ways I haven’t been able to lately. I can’t wait for my next session!”
“I am a Psychotherapist and University Lecturer with over ten years experience in the mental health industry. As a mental health professional, It’s vital that I maintain a balanced mind to be of genuine assistance to the clients I treat. When I tried the EWOT machine this morning, I was there predominantly to test the EWOT’s effects on my physical body. I suffer from chronic sinus and reoccurring joint pain cause by multiple vehicle collisions. However, what surprised me the most and was undoubtedly the most satisfying outcome was the effect the EWOT machine had on my mental well-being. After 15 short minutes on the bike, interchanging between high altitude sprints and 100% pure oxygen recovery, I was and still am blown away by the subsequent positive effects the EWOT machine had on my mind and body. I felt an instant clarity of mind; it felt as though the world was moving in slow motion, and the calming effect this had on my body cannot be understated. My mind chatter almost vanished, my worries about the day ahead were gone, I felt relaxed, calm, and totally in the present moment. I am still rather overwhelmed by the EWOT’s ability to do this. It’s like doing exercise and meditation wrapped into 15 short minutes. The energy and clarity it gave me to see out the rest of my day and evening was impressive. I managed to run a lecture, see patients and fit in a grueling leg workout, which I rarely have the energy to do after a long day. The EWOT machine’s effect on my sinuses was extraordinary. After the 15 minutes were up, my sinuses were draining naturally and I felt cool air reach the back of my throat through my nose, which is extremely rare for me. I get tension headaches regularly and had one before I used the EWOT machine today. By the afternoon, my headache was gone, my mind was clear, I was breathing better, and the extra energy meant that I got so much more done.”
