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.

Love this thing!!!! Used it for the last month and my cardio has improved tremendously!!! It has also help with my career as a firefighter!!!! Recommend for anyone looking to take their training to the next level!!!!!!
Great Mask, definitely does what it's suppose to.
In terms of the fit. I weigh 179 lbs. mask is a little too small for my face. Sleeve is a little too big so I have to keep readjusting it. Even with this situation I still have incredible workouts and I'm only training at 6000 ft altitude.
This mask has gave me more stamina than I expected. It's difficult to get used to at first but after a couple of days my workouts have intensified and shortened at the same time. Highly recommended! As a firefighter I can say it's also helped me control my breathing.
My only regret about this product is that I didn't buy it sooner. It's crazy how over the past week of using this mask, I am able to catch my second wind so much quicker and I am able to focus more when lifting. Go get one!...Now!...What are you waiting on?!
When the box says it cuts your workout in half it's true. I usually take a while to get sweating and get my heart rate up, but with the training mask I get to that point in minutes. Definitely worth the buy
I bought this mask a few weeks ago after trying my buddies out for a run. I enjoyed the challenge it put on my cardio exercise and had to have one. I am currently training to become a fire fighter so I needed something to simulate the strain we are put under in full gear. This has not only improved my endurance in class but on the track as well. I notice my time and distance increasing when I do not have the mask on. I strongly recommend this product for anyone who wants to push past that plateau and build their strength.
Light, efficient, easy to use. Those 3 adjectives describes it best. It is simple, no matter what or how you are training, this mask will make your train more efficient both on the physical side and on the psychological side. A must-buy for all the real competitors out there, those who will always go the extra mile. In 2 weeks, this mask has become one of my best friends in the weight room and in the cardio training room.
I bought the mask to prepare me for a race in Montana (I'm from Louisiana). My pace and endurance has improved in just a short amount of time. I've also noticed that while I'm wearing my mask I have more strength in my weightlifting. It's odd how relaxing it is to wear it, even though it makes the workout more intense.
The biggest change I've noticed that while I'm running I've managed to train my lungs to take more deep, long breathes versus short, choppy ones. This has prevented my lungs from feeling like a deflated balloon, especially in the Louisiana heat.
You may look like Bane and sound like Darth Vader, but the benefits are worth it!
This mask ristricts your air way causing you to focus on your breathing and when you take it off you will notice a difference immediately. Builds endurance and you just have to try it for your self it's also fun and it's a conversation starter for sure.
I have been using this mask for a few weeks and it has made a huge difference in my cardio a couple weeks ago I couldn't walk a mile do to a recent Heart Attack now I'm running a 12min 1 1/2 mile.
I love my new Elevation Training Mask. It works great & showed up in a very timely manner. I'm very pleased with this product and this company.
I'm training for my junior year of high school football and I bought this mask as a way to up the intensity of some of my workouts. This is a great tool to use and after two months of use I've noticed a huge rise in lung capacity and not being as gases after sprints. My breathing goes to a normal level in a shorter amount of time. Best of all I can get warmed up and get my blood pumping faster than my normal warm-ups that usually put stress on my legs before a workout.
One of the best equipment anybody can have either for casual use or the serious athlete.
In the few weeks that I have been using this product I seen a big difference in my cardo conditioning. As a law enforcement officer and MMA Fitness training we know how important ones cardo conditioning is. This product is great. If you an athlete, gym rat, weekends warrior or one that just wants to improve their fitness level, this is for you.
I'm a collegiate football player and I also throw Javelin in Track and Field. This year I'll be training for the crossfit games as well. I'm in my off season training with football right now with spring ball starting in five days. Before using the training mask I was in what I considered to be the best shape of my life. In a week of using the training mask I am able to see gains in my endurance and stamina. I can control my breathing more directly after running sprints and my physical performance has improved. I hope to increasingly make gains to take my game to the next level as I continue to use the training mask throughout the year. If you're looking for a competitive edge over your opponent or looking to improve your breathing in general. I recommend this product because it works great.
I totally recommend this product. It truly does work for lung expansion purposes. It helps you learn to control your breathing in the proper way and definitely mays workouts more intense. I've recommended it to all of my competitive fighters to use for our strength and cardio training. It's a grade A product for sure.
It seals around your nose and mouth very well. Workouts are intense. Running is intense. It's almost relaxing focusing on the breathing sounds as opposed to my struggling legs when running. Highly recommended!
I have used it twice so far and it seems like it would really work.
I workout out with it yesterday and rode today and it seemed like I had a lot more oxygen.
Always looking for an advantage and this mask has helped elevate my fitness to a new level. I'm a police officer and my physical training is crucial to me coming home at the end of my shift. I've only had this tool for a few weeks but already see how it has increased my cardiovascular / respiratory ability. I'm sold. Need it, love it. Also, breathing is so critical under high stress situations for fine motor skills and clear headed split second decision making- this has become an invaluable tool for me. I will highly recommend this product to the police recruits I train to help them with that all important deep breathing. Just getting started with this mask but absolutely endorse this.
I have an ankle injury and can not run or play tennis until it heals. I have seen others with the Elevation Training Mask and thought it would be a good tool to help me maintain my aerobic conditioning during this time. I found my first workout to be challenging (using the least resistance). I have used it several times since and I like the aerobic challenge the mask offers. I feel that I am ready to increase the resistance already. I suggest using the head strap to keep the mask in a comfortable position, otherwise there is too much pressure on your nose. I plan to use the Mask after my injury has healed to cross train. I would recommend the Mask to anyone who is looking for another way to increase the intensity of their workouts.
