Respiratory Performance Video Course
Premiere Closed Balanced System for Mountain Athletes
ARE YOU A MOUNTAIN ATHLETE LOOKING TO OPTIMIZE YOUR PERFORMANCE IN A HIGH-ALTITUDE ENVIRONMENT?
Why this performance breathwork course is for you!
Every pursuit requires preparation, training, and planning. How well you breathe will determine how well you perform. This course is perfect for the Mountain athlete who not only wants to improve their overall performance but also increase their longevity through breath.
A CLOSED BALANCED SYSTEM
Optimizing Your Respiratory System
It is well known that high altitude has adverse effects on human physiology, compared to what is seen at sea level. These effects are largely due to the change in barometric pressure, which causes a decrease in the amount of oxygen in the body, leading to hyperbaric hypoxia. As Mountain athletes, how fast the body acclimatizes to the environment will be obvious in our Sport performance and Recovery and in our overall individual mountain pursuits.
Effects from high altitude depend on several factors, including the ascent rate to altitude, final altitude reached, altitude in which the athlete sleeps, and individual physiology. However, it is not well known that athletes can train the respiratory system to optimize performance.
The top three bio markers for respiratory performance are CO2 tolerance, force rate, and lung capacity. Mountain athletes who have hire CO2 tolerance will acclimatize much quicker and may not experience the negative symptomology of HA (high altitude). Developing a stronger force rate will result in an even exchange of O2/C02 and will maintain balance to the system. Also, developing proper breathing mechanics will result in the utilization of full lung capacity.
The Mountain Wellness® closed balanced performance breathing system is the premiere training program for mountain athletes and will give you the tools, tactics, and training methodologies to optimize performance and extend longevity for your mountain pursuits.

Emerging research has found that breathing is an integral part of human performance and longevity
Could you be underperforming at everything and not even be aware of it?
“A skittering mind, jumping from thought to thought, is a leech to productivity, creative endeavor, and quality of life. Having a focused mind is probably the greatest asset in every walk of life, whatever your occupation or lifestyle". - Patrick McKeown, Breathing Expert.
How long you live is how well you breathe
"Researchers crunched the numbers of a 70-year study. They extracted two decades of data to determine if lung size did correlate to longevity. They discovered after looking at 5200 subjects it was in fact lung capacity that determined how long you will live. Not diet, genetics, or even exercise. Smaller lungs became the quickest way people died over their lifetime. But larger lungs equaled longer lives. Even people with lung transplants that were given larger lungs lived longer." - James Nestor, Breathing Expert
"Over-breathing MAY be a cause of damage to the heart". - George Dallam PhD.
"Over-breathing MAY be a cause of damage to the heart seen in endurance athletes as a higher incidence of AFib….lowering of CO2 in blood (from over breathing) results in blood flow restriction, which may be a cause to a lack of blood flow (a lack of oxygen) to the heart. - George Dallam PhD.
SHUT YOUR MOUTH
Mountain Wellness athletes tested the closed balanced system on Mt. Whitney, The highest peak in the contiguous US at 14,505 feet to prove it works.
You can train for high altitude in the comfort of your own home. Training your entire body for a low oxygen environment like high altitude with our proven training techniques.
Mountain Wellness® Recovery Den
Home of the Mountain Athlete
The Mountain Wellness Recovery Den is nestled at the base of the Elkhorn Mountain range in Montana City, MT. Here is where we combined our knowledge of breathwork to create the closed balanced system, testing it in a variety of low oxygen environments and high stress situations. All of this testing, and our combined passion and knowledge, led us to one realization: that we had to share this revolutionary and profoundly life altering technique with you. The closed balance system changed our lives, and it can change yours too!
