Will I have to Follow a Special Nutrition Program?

Your HYPOXI-Consultant will give you personalized nutritional guidelines to help you achieve optimal results.

General overview:

HYPOXI days:
Before HYPOXI Training:
About 1 – 4 hours before the session, include in your meal complex carbohydrates such as wholegrain products (cereals, bread, pasta etc.) and brown rice.
No food intake for at least one hour before the HYPOXI session.
After HYPOXI Training:
For best results avoid any food intake for 1 - 2 hours after the session. For the rest of the day focus on portion control, avoid fats and carbohydrates such as sugar, bread, pasta, potatoes etc. 
Meals should consist primarily of lean proteins combined with non-starchy vegetables and salad.

Non HYPOXI days:
Stay on a nutritionaly balanced diet, avoiding alcohol, sugar, white flour products, animal fat and high fat dairy products.
Vegetables should be included in all meals. Integrate fruit at breakfast and lunch.
Remember sufficient liquid intake (about 2-3 liters of water or tea, with 0 calories, i.e. Herbal Tea)

Should I do Additional Exercise?

On Non HYPOXI days:
All types of exercise are allowed. Weight training is highly recommended.

On HYPOXI days:
Preferably no exercise should be done on HYPOXI days, particularly after the session. If you need to take other sport activities on HYPOXI days it should be done at least 4 hours before or 8 hours after your session.

What is the cost?

An individually designed HYPOXI Training program - supervised by a certified HYPOXI coach - in an authorized HYPOXI Studio - costos from as little as $30 to $70 per session. A free consultation and goals assessment is necessary to estimate how many sessions and which program you need to reach your goal.
Your HYPOXI Coach will analyze your health and weight history to estimate which results you personally should be able to expect.

After how many sessions will I see results?

Each HYPOXI session achieves a great amount of fat burning from the targeted areas. The cumulative effect of consecutive sessions is usually noticed after 3 to 4 sessions. Depending on your personal predisposition the inch loss in the targeted areas is about 3 times greater than that achieved with conventional exercise.

Most of our clients achieve their goal during a period of 1-3 months.

Is it possible to do HYPOXI if I have varicose veins?

Yes, the combination of intermittent changes of pressure and simultaneous muscular movement benefit the venous system and stimulates lymphatic drainage.
