    PowerLung BreatheAir

    Fitness & Active Lifestyles

    Breath Control & Endurance

    People who find the BreatheAir optimal are moderately active and exercise at least 2 to 3 days per week. They prefer regular low intensity activities like walking, fitness swimming or low- intensity styles of Yoga, Pilates or martial arts.

    Performing artists will use a BreatheAir to condition or improve breath control and muscle memory.

    Choose This Model If

    • You are moderately active, working out 2-3 days a week
    • You walk or swim for fitness regularly
    • You practice Yoga, Pilates or martial arts
    • You want to change to deep breathing from shallow breathing
    • You want stronger vocal resonance, projection and breath control
    • You are a student musician and want to learn good breathing form and support for your sound
    • You prefer to train for a more open breath for your instrument
    • You regularly play a low pressure instrument

    PowerLung Trainer

    Training & Exercise Activities

    Advanced Performers

    The Trainer model is the most appropriate for those who are looking to improve performance in sports or other rigorous activity. The Trainer is excellent for the advanced student or amateur athlete to help them in their competition and recovery. If you have been exercising for many years but find it harder as you have aged, the Trainer helps you restore some of the muscle tone and breathing ability. Resistance training in this model is the highest level of resistance in breathing training for most people.

    Advanced or professional performing artists specializing in high pressure instruments or professional singers with high lung volume will improve endurance and breath-control.

    Choose This Model If

    • You are in good physical and aerobic condition and desire to improve your performance
    • You exercise or train for running, cycling or sports at high intensity almost daily
    • You want to train in your Target Heart Rate Zone for longer and train easier at high intensity
    • You want to train breath management for better sports or music performance
    • You are a professional or advanced musician who wants to play, sing or perform more relaxed for longer periods of time
    • You play a high-pressure instrument but don’t always have time to warm up before or between performances

    PowerLung Sport

    Elite Athletes

    Top Performance

    The Sport Model offers the highest levels of resistance available in a PowerLung. If you are an advanced athlete or in a physically challenging job and already perform at the highest levels, but you want to improve or extend breath control or muscle tone, the Sport will be a value-add to your training regimen.
    The resistance controls on the Sport do not adjust lower to include the resistance of any other models.

    If music is your primary reason for using a PowerLung most music teachers do not recommend the Sport model due to its high range of resistance.

    Choose This Model If

    • You are in excellent physical and aerobic condition.
    • You would consider yourself an elite athlete on the conditioning level of someone in Navy SEALs, Special Ops or SOCOM community.
    • You want to assure every breath gives you the most your body can give.
    • You want to perfect managing your breathing to improve your performance for racing or performing well in your job.

    This model is not meant for the casual user or even those who activity is moderate to high.
