Training Mask 2.0 has been a work in progress for over 2 years. We have asked ourcustomers 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.
The Elevation Training Mask 2.0 is the ultimate respiratory training device.
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.
Altitude resistance and Training Mask 2.0 ?
There are various "Resistance Breathing" elevations with Training Mask 2.0 "BreathingResistances" are simulated
resistances that are "maching" how hard it would actually be to breath in
(3,000 | 6,000ft | 9,000ft | 12,000 | 15,000ft | 18,000 Ft. in "ALTITUDE RESISTANCES".Training Mask 2.0 does not "change on the o2 molecular level" however your body does make adaptations for this "Simulation" to be considered "Altitude Training" also known as the "BOHR EFFECT"
Training Mask 2.0 is completely washable!
We have constructed the Training Mask 2.0 out of high grade neoprene as well as high quality printing that is able to with stand outdoor training, rain or shine, or any other weather condition that may have been keeping you away from training at your peak performance.
Why Choose Training Mask 2.0?
The Elevation Training Mask 2.0 is the ultimate respiratory training device for breathing and controlling the flow of air delivered in to your body. Our Multi level resistance system creates a Resisted air flow through flux valves into the Training Mask 2.0.When your body adapts to the resistance of Training Mask 2.0 your lungs will be trained to take deep beaths that use oxygen more efficiently.
While using Training Mask 2.0 breathing and conditioning of your lungs significantly increases and so will your endurance while strengthening your diaphragm. Training Mask 2.0will help Your respiratory system as your overall cardio and endurance will improve with continued use.
What benefits does Training Mask 2.0 resistance breathing have?

I've been using my mask for a week now and love it! its great for running and you can instantly tell a difference when you take it off. In the gym it forces you to breathe properly

Product works as described. I can feel a difference after a week of using the product! Thank you!

Think you're hardcore? Slip this bad boy on & you can make anything you do feel like a fight gone bad. Defines "embrace the suck". My only qualm with the mask is the exhaust; its restrictive exhalation vents result in face/mask interface resonance. Regardless, you too can channel Frank Booth from the David Lynch movie "Blue Velvet" lol.

I have just started using the mask during my workouts and it has worked extremely well. It has only been a week but I can already feel my 'wind' is improving.
The only issue I have with the mask is that velcro strap in the back slides down which causes strain on my ears. A relatively minor issue to an otherwise great product.

I used it during my regular leg workout today, I usually superset everything to keep my heart rate up, this mask takes supersets to another level! I havent even tried running with it yet and am very impressed, great product!
BJJ/MMA/Weightlifting & Cardio - It's all good!
Posted by Brian on 21st Sep 2012
I've had the mask for a week now and tried it out doing BJJ/Judo, MMA, Squats in the gym & Cardio.
It's hard to tell what the long-term effects will actually be but from what I can tell now, it's going to be amazing!
On the mat I am forced to focus on my breathing which; in turn, makes me focus on the movements much more.
At the gym, the cardio is much more challenging which I like. And doing some high rep squats, no problem!!
Glad I got this. I don't mind the "wtf" looks I get, most people have been quite good about it in "public"(ie the gym)
I'm also very happy I bought it here. I bought it at 3pm on a Friday and it was on my doorstep the next Monday after work!!

Couldn't wait for it to arrive! Almost tackeled the delivery man when it did. Flipped through the pamphlet to get familiar and on it went. I can say it is better than the expected results. From experience in a MC-2 (mickey 2 gas mask) this is a thousand times better for the benefits of lung training. Thanks!
Great Deal Cant Wait for Mine to Arrive

My wife and I trained for Tough Mudder races, and Spartan Races with the original Elevation Training Mask. I truly believe it shaved minutes off of our time and helped out in our general fitness. Thanks Nj Fightshop
