Rebuilding Energy and Endurance at Any Age

Yes, it’s true, you can, literally, breathe new life into your body. Every cell in your body is dependent on oxygen to create energy. And the amount of oxygen available to every cell in your body and brain is dependent on the quality of your breathing pattern and function. This class will train you, and your entire respiratory system, to be more efficient at delivering blood, oxygen, glucose, and nutrients to all those cells. Whether you’re an athlete or not, the secret to greater strength and endurance starts, and ends, with the strength of your respiratory system. 

Course Outline

Week 1; Breathing Pattern Awareness

Developing an awareness of common breathing pattern dysfunctions. 

Learn optimal breathing and begin awareness of your own breathing patterns. 

Several activities will be included to establish your own fitness baseline.

Week 2; Respiratory Muscle Training

Learn how to improve the strength of the respiratory system and inspiratory muscles. 

Learn how inspiratory muscles are responsible for doing ‘the work’ of breathing when drawing in fresh air and oxygen. When these muscles tire, your whole body will tire.
