Before this product, I always had a hard time keeping up with exercises and since using this I am surpassing others.

This is an Awesome tool and helps to make every training session even more challenging, and better. I have noticed better endurance on the ice, and at the gym. I will continue to use this, as I have a allergic reaction to neoprene, so will unfortunately not upgrade to the 2.0.

Love this product, seals on my face better than the 2.0. Plus the dogs in my neighborhood don't chase me when I run wearing this.

Straps and lenses

Avoid losing strap elasticity by loosening all the straps. Place mask on face. Pull the top two straps to firm tightness. Do the same with the bottom two. Check for a good seal by removing air restricting cap place palm of hand over the hole and inhale. If the mask caves in you have a great seal replace cap(s).
Avoid blurry lenses by spitting on the lenses inside the mask(now I'm not saying to hawk up all the lung butter). Rub the spit in the lens then a wick rinse under the sink. If that's too gross for you tooth paste works and so does the antifog drops in the swimming section of a sporting goods store. Spit is free divers and swimmers do it. And ask how a fire puts on his/her scba mask on
A must have !

I have had my elevation mask since it first came out .. I originally bought this product to prepare for my first Tough Mudder in North Star , Nevada where the elevation was pretty high and I was afraid that my asthma was going to suffer.. I have to say I am very excited and happy to have used this training product. My ability to run longer has increased and my use of my asthma medication has lowered a whole lot .. Give it a try !

As a fitness / cardio junkie I absolutely love this piece of equipment! Not only does it challenge you physically but it also challenges you mentally. The design is very aggressive and does provoke some questioning glances at the gym, but it is so worth it.
I used to think that my cardio was pretty good and then I picked up a training mask. Wow, this thing kicked my butt!
I have been utilizing this tool for just about a month and I can already see a difference. The last 2 weeks I have been doing 100 burpees for time every second day. I initially did an assessment without the mask and my time was just under 7 minutes. My first attempt with the mask I timed out at a little over 15 minutes. It took everything I had not to claw this thing off my face. The 4th time I did this with the mask I was already down to just under 11 minutes. That’s roughly 4 minutes difference in 4 sessions in just 2 weeks! I did a reassessment without the mask after the 2 weeks and managed to get my time a little over 4 minutes.
This device is torturous while being used, but the short period of discomfort is completely worth the results! I have, and will continue to, recommend this tool to anyone looking to up their cardio and take it to the next level.
