What's new with Training Mask 2.0?
** All Training Mask 2.0's come with the head strap
Training Mask 2.0 has been a work in progress for over 2 years. We have asked our customers of Training Mask 1.0 to give us their feedback and what they would want to see in 2.0. With great feedback from test marketing and direct responses we have made Training Mask 2.0 smaller, lighter and more comfortable. Training Mask 2.0 gives the end user a redesigned look and feel along with the resistance levels that they desire
Elevation Training Mask mimics the effects of High Altitude Training. When elite athletes want to improve their performance they go to high altitude levels to train. When they come back to sea level they perform much stronger, faster, and have increased endurance.
Training Mask 2.0 makes your work out more efficient allowing you to take your work out from 60 minutes to 20 minutes. From the average daily walker to the marathon runner, Training Mask 2.0 appeals to every athlete who wants to improve their overall health and performance.
We have changed the look!
It started with the first version made from an Israeli civilian gas mask and has been completedly revamped and remolded into Training Mask 2.0. We have gotten away from the eye pieces, hardened straps, and overall gas mask look. With reconstruction of an entirely new mask mould, and neoprene that is stretched over the rubber resistance mask, and caps give Training Mask 2.0 a smooth, sleek look and comfortable feel.
Training Mask 2.0 is held on the face with a comfortable neoprene strap that over lays the air tight silicone piece that rests against the face. The neoprene strap is held onto the mask by 3 "Resistance caps". The resistance caps make for a nice snug fit against the neoprene and hold the neoprene in place acting as a "post" against the silicone that rests on your face.
Training Mask 2.0 is a less aggressive looking approach to working out while still getting the aggressive workout that one desires. With Training Mask 2.0 you do not have claustrophobia like feeling nor will you have to worry about vision problems while training. Our snap and go resistance nose pieces are truely revolutionary as it makes the ease of use that much easier.
The science behind the mask!
After extensive research and clinical testing from the UNIVERSITY OF NAIT the Training Mask 2.0 has made remarkable advancement in the fitness and training industry. Training Mask 2.0 takes all the amazing "Diaphragm Resistance Technology" from Training Mask 1.0 and compiles it into a less obtrusive, amazingly comfortable silicone mask that fits over the nose and mouth.
Our multi-level resistance system reduces air flow through our patent pending flux valve system. Training Mask 2.0 promotes increased lung capacity by forcing you to inhale fuller deeper breaths. When your body adapts to the resistance your lungs will be trained to take deeper breaths and use oxygen more efficiently. A short explanation of how this works is simple. When you breathe against resistance the lining in the lungs essentially stretches out allowing the alveoli’s surface area to become "stretched" thus in return allows for more blood flow to the alveoli for more (oxygen transportation). When you increase "surface area" you increase red blood cell count that will be able to carry more oxygen out to the extremities
While using Training Mask 2.0 the conditioning of your lungs significantly increases along with endurance and diaphragm strength.
Training Mask 2.0 will benefit your respiratory system as your overall cardio and endurance will improve with continued use.
**There are many breathing devices and respiratory trainers used by hundreds of elite athletes for sports performance and by other users for health and fitness. Some of these devices are invented to increase strength of the respiratory muscles. Numerous clinical trials have found that these devices can increase endurance and VO2max (maximum oxygen absorption during most intensive exercise), improve lung function tests (VEF, PEF, FVC, and VEmax), lower heart rate for the same load, reduce medication (drugs) and symptoms, improve quality of life scores and lead to other beneficial health effects.
**Furthermore, with correct applications, breathing devices can increase body oxygen levels and produce profound effects on long term endurance, VO2max, duration of recovery from injuries and intensive training, together with life quality effects related to sleep, energy level and digestion. This review is focused on these oxygen-related effects of various breathing techniques.

I love it. Great for breathing exercises not Tried it doing any form of cardio or anything but I'm sure it'll be intense
This mask really works and helps u push ur limits
So I got this mask out of curiosity (and also did my homework) loved the idea of it and thought i'd give it a true. I workout during the week and use my weekends as my run days. Mainly use the mask for running and will eventually bring it into the gym with me during my workouts (don't care how they wanna look at me). Running 5K's with the mask on during my runs basically feels like I ran 6 and i'm only at 3K setting. I don't know when i'll eventually move it up but i'm in no rush. Love it and i'm a fan! Also can't wait to use it in the gym only during in-between sets periods like I've seen some others do during recovery time. Love the challenge this thing brings.
Since purchasing my training mask, I've noticed the increase of work being put into my workouts. This product is a motivation on it's own, and really makes you work for it. Finally, something that can without a doubt keep your cardio in check during the off season.
Took my elevation trainer on a run for 2 miles, I was running and walking and wanting to just stop. But I pushed through and realized that I feel extremely exhausted after running which I haven't felt in years. Great product
I've only been using this product for about a week and so far I am very pleased. The amount of negative pressure that has to be created to open the valves while breathing really forces me to take deep breaths, and engage all my muscles required for breathing.
It really does work--at least it makes my workout proportionally more difficult.
My only complaint is the sizing is difficult to get right.... I got a medium but I probably should have gotten a large. But, the medium works.
The Elevation Training Mask 2.0 is an excellent training tool. I am currently using it to get ready for an up coming Tough Mudder, and I began to see results within two weeks. Not only does the mask do everything it is supposed to do as stated on the company website, but it also had the added benefit of making me focus on how I breathe during my work outs. This focus in turn has made my breathing more efficient and has given me more endurance. I have nothing but praises for the Elevation Training Mask 2.0 and recommend it for anyone who wants to increase their endurance.
only usining for 4 days and i see the resolt that i always want it helps me to improve my body for my soccer games the only thing that i can say is that is the best product ever in the world thanks to the training mask im getting betther and betther
Without a doubt this has increased my endurance and my physical ability to assert myself in only a week. I've exercised with all the altitudes which you can adjust to using this mask, and I can't believe how real the results are. I will buy 1 or 2 more masks in the future for myself (when the one i have wears out) and definetely recommend this mask to my family and friends. Its unbelievable, you guys have created a one of a kind mask. Congrats!
Got it about a week ago and have already dropped 30 seconds or so off of my 2-mile run time.
Fairly comfortable except for where it fits on the bridge of the nose with glasses, but I don't think there's much they can do about it.
This mask can be a little frightening when first worn. I am a professional athlete and I decided to jump right into the mask and do some challenging cardio on level 2. I instantly felt claustrophobic and started to panic with my breathing. You truly have to practice good breathing techniques; for example focusing on slowing and controlling your breathing, and controlling your mentality when wearing a restrictive breathing apparatus.
Overall I had a challenging workout once I worked through the initial setbacks. I bought this mask as a gift for my fiancé, who is a Fireman. He wears the mask while he completes skills courses. He has numerous friends on the job who own the mask 2.0 and 1.0 and they absolutely swear by the experience, mocking the feeling of O2 bottles they wear while fighting fire, and learning to practice restrictive breathing and staying in Fire Fighter shape.
As a wrestler, runner, and a person who trains with soldiers, I'm used to what it feels like to put in work and come home tired; or so I thought. My very first day working out and running with the mask on, (Set to 6k I might add), I felt absolutely gassed, broke a sweat not even a mile into the warm up run, and slightly sore, when I normally would have just been sore. I felt like I had genuinely experienced a good, hard workout session. Not to mention the fact that I recovered quicker than ever before. Ever since that day, which was about 2 weeks ago, I've worn it during every session and I'm already seeing a difference in my VO2 max and diaphragm strength. If you want a good piece of equipment to help you push your limits even further and be better than you normally would, the Elevation Training Mask 2.0 will do just that, and is worth every penny.
I bought this after doing research and knowing WHY I was getting it. It wasn't for hypoxia training, as I understand the physiology of how that works. I got it because of the Avioli, Dyaphram, and Mental training this offers. Wow! After the first 2 days of using this, there is immediate difference. HOWEVER, for those just starting out in a training program, I'd suggest a good year of top Amateur training under your belt. This is a tool for those with a solid foundation. I hope this offers a bit of clarity. Email me if you have questions. Cheers!!
This Training Mask 2.0 has already improved my lung strength. I think that it should be incorporated into your workout. Even when I use it lifting weights, I break a sweat faster and have to focus on slow, deep breaths.
I never would have thought this mask was gonna live up to all the hype. I am distance runner that run an average of 6 miles a day and now I run 4 to 5 miles with the mask and it feels like I just ran 7 or 8 miles! This mask is the best altidude mask out there I can't think of one bad thing about the mask!
Im a division 1 soccer player and with only using it for two weeks I can already feel an increase in my VO2 max, it makes me train harder and the best part about the mask is that it decreases my recovery time. Love it
After a week of training with it , I can already see some improvement in resistance and stamina.
Getting better and better with time since it does need some adjustment time as breathing becomes more involving and elaborate with immediate and visible results.
Great product and well made.
The mask looks great, but I like it for the resistance and focus it gives you on your breathing. I love the feeling taking off the mask and being able to breath like a primed sprinter.
