Improve Your Health. . . Exercise with Oxygen
More oxygen helps you achieve a younger
and healthier brain and body
At Gym for the Brain you exercise with a specially designed oxygen system that boosts the oxygen delivered to your brain and body.
Help Your Body Repair Itself
and Function Better
“This is one of the best tools I’ve ever seen to enhance detoxification, improve blood flow and reduce inflammation. It makes your brain YOUNGER and stronger.”
Michael Cohen, Director

Benefits to your Brain
. . . people use oxygen exercise to help with:
- Brain fog
- More energy, less fatigue
- Improved mood, worry, and anxiety
- Better sleep
- Enhanced memory and concentration
- Slowing cognitive decline
- Reducing inflammation
Why do I want more oxygen?
Research shows that many health issues and chronic conditions can be related to not enough oxygen getting to the tissues, including:
- Alzheimer’s disease/dementia
- Concussions /TBI
- Heart disease
- Poor circulation
At Gym for the Brain, the amount of oxygen getting to the brain and tissues is increased. More oxygen helps the body and brain’s repair-and-renewal process and reduces inflammation. This results in aging more slowly and functioning better.
If you want to be healthier at all levels, oxygen is the best tool.
Three of the most powerful ways to get more oxygen to your brain and body are:
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- IV ozone therapy
- Exercising with oxygen, including intermittent hypoxic (high altitude) training
Any one of these can help you. How do they compare? To learn more click here.
How does the training work?
It’s easy. You pedal on a recumbent bike at your own moderate pace. You wear a personal oxygen mask. As you pedal, you automatically take in much larger amounts of oxygen than normal through the mask. Periodically, your trainer switches you from 86% oxygen (high-intensity) to high-altitude oxygen (14%) for short times to increase oxygen utilization.
Training typically takes 15 minutes two to four times weekly at our center. Results are usually noticeable within five to ten sessions.
Your program includes guidance by a trainer. Your trainer customizes your training protocols based on your goals, helps you learn how to train with oxygen, and monitors your progress to ensure you achieve maximum oxygen benefits.
- It’s safe. (Ride a bike. Breathe oxygen.)
- It’s fast. (15 minutes per session)
- It’s inexpensive relative to other oxygen therapies.
- It’s a game changer for mental and physical enhancement – far beyond just nutrition and physical exercise.
- It can speed up your body’s detox process (cleaning out toxins or metabolic waste).
- It’s non-invasive.

The Role of Toxins and Inflammation
Inflammation greatly exacerbates health issues for virtually everyone. Inflammation builds up over the years, becoming an ENEMY. This enemy presents a HIGH risk to our brain and body.
Inflammation can affect sleep, mood and energy. It can heighten chronic pain and contribute to autoimmune issues.
Did you know that Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are closely linked to long-term, chronic inflammatory processes? (research link)
We unknowingly ingest toxins every day. Toxins can be found in food, beverages, and our environment, which is contaminated by invisible chemicals, micro-plastics, air pollution, EMF, and beyond. These unseen elements contribute to chronic inflammation and other underlying health issues.
This sophisticated type of oxygen exercise is a very good tool for reducing inflammation and enlisting your body’s healing power, while helping you combat the toxic world we live in.
Dr. Lisa Koche explains the advantages of Live O2 over hyperbaric oxygen therapy for wellness.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why not just exercise or eat a high quality diet? Is this training really that different?
It is that different. Exercise and a good diet are both good ways to increase oxygen. But the special system of oxygen training we use has a much bigger impact on health – both physical and mental.
You benefit by increasing the amount of oxygen carried by your red blood cells to more tissues of the body and the brain. This has a huge impact on improving metabolic function, from gut to brain to overall circulation.
To learn more about the fundamental concepts of this unique oxygen training and how getting more oxygen to the body and brain is important, we recommend you watch this eight-minute video by Robert Rowen, MD.
How long does it take to notice effects?
Five to eight sessions are typical for full benefits to appear, but people frequently tell us they notice improvement after one session. By the way, we review your progress prior to every session and continuously revise your training protocol accordingly.
What is intermittent hypoxic training?
Our exercise program—sometimes referred to as intermittent hypoxic training—uses a proprietary system that alternates between high intensity oxygen (86%) and low intensity/high altitude oxygen (14%). Exercising causes your body to accept, disburse and absorb the oxygen more readily. (The air we breathe at sea level is comprised of 21% oxygen.) This is similar to the way we might strengthen a bicep with curling weights by stressing, relaxing, stressing, etc. There’s an excellent article that discusses this concept and its health impact by Michael Kummer. In addition, there’s a great deal of research on the benefits of high altitude (intermittent hypoxic) training.
