"They say a picture is worth a thousand words...I want you to see the amazing results I've obtained by using Oxycise! I have been overweight for most of my life. I have been battling weight problems on various diets and exercise programs for years with very little success. In fact with the passing of each year my health continued to decline and I had pretty well given up all hope of ever losing weight let alone being thin again. I began to suffer from high blood pressure, asthma, allergies, high triglyceride levels, high blood sugar levels and worse yet I was suffering from severe GastroEsophogeal Reflux Disorder that was also causing panic attacks. I knew I had to lose the weight to rid myself of these problems.
"I started to go to a local gymnasium because I knew that the weight wouldn't come off as quickly if I didn't incorporate some sort of exercise program, so I decided to sign up for a "spinning class" (stationary bicycles). Unfortunately my heart rate would get up so high during the class that I thought I was going to suffer a heart attack and this would cause the panic attacks to start again. I was so frustrated because I wanted to exercise, but didn't know what I could do thinking that I had to exert myself to get any benefit.
"That's when I discovered Oxycise!
"At first I was skeptical, but I wanted to do something-anything-to lose the weight. I'm so grateful that I decided to order the Oxycise! Level 1 tapes. I was able to burn off the excess fat right away and didn't even break a sweat! The deep-breathing technique you have developed is so effective, so amazing. Not only has it helped me to lose weight, but more than anything I believe the deep-breathing has helped heal my body and restore my overall health.
"Since I've been doing Oxycise!, my chest measurement has gone from 50.5 inches down to 42.5 inches, but the amazing part is the fact that my lung capacity has gone from 425L/min to 620L/min. My shirt size has gone from a 5X to Large. My waist has gone from pants size 60 inches to 36-inch waist. Even my wedding ring had to be adjusted from a size 14 to 9.5. Amazingly my weight has gone from 410 pounds to 200. Oxycise! has helped me in losing more than half my body weight and I've never felt better. Oxycise! has brought about a mighty change and has given me my life back, now I can play with my children instead of being a spectator.
"I am so grateful for all that my wife, Francisca, has done to help me. Without her encouragement and support I wouldn't have been able to accomplish my weight loss goal. She has also had a great deal of success using Oxycise! along with me. She has used Oxycise! to go from 155 pounds to her current weight of 127.5 and she looks great!
"We both want to thank you for your inspired program and for helping us improve our health and quality of life."

"Jill Johnson's program is a lifestyle approach to fitness. It uses techniques that are easy to master, produce satisfying results, and can be incorporated into one's daily health and fitness. It combines isotonic muscle contraction with aerobic breathing to burn subcutaneous fat, increase heart performance, and strengthen major muscle groups.
"In three weeks I lost 1 ¾ inches off my waist. The muscle hardness in my abs is the same as when I do 400 sit-ups a day. I am pleased with the results of the program and am incorporating much of it into my normal bodybuilding/training workouts."
"I have been using Oxycise! program I and II for over a year now. I am an African-American male, age 48 and counting. I was once 203 lbs. then down to 170 lbs. I have been 175 lbs. now for about ten months.
"My only regret with using your program, is that I did not take before pictures. I did not think I would get the results I did without drastically changing my diet.
"I Oxycise! when I walk, and also when I am sitting at my desk. I laugh to myself when I hear the diet programs advertised on TV and radio. I say to myself, if they only knew what I know about Oxycise! Thank you for this fabulous program."
"This is incredible. I've lost 20 pounds in two months and am starting to see my abdominal muscles again! It feels good and makes sense. I love having a way to achieve and maintain my health in spite of my busy travel schedule. Please send more Oxycise! Systems -- I have several friends and business associates who are anxious to get started."

"Thanks for sending my Oxycise! package...I've been at it for 3 days and can already see the early signs of a reshaping of my upper body. Also notice a definite difference in the abs already, which is one of my main objectives. It is clear that this will replace sit-ups in my routine. Kinda funny - what goes around comes around. As I was doing some of the exercises, I had a flashback to the first workout routine I ever did in my teens - from a book written by Charles Atlas! The isometric and isotonic exercises he suggested are similar to your program....and it makes good sense. I guess we have "over-mechanized" ourselves, huh? I'll keep you posted as my program progresses!"
After losing about 5 pounds, Eli wrote again...
"I Oxycise! whenever I can and have been doing fairly well with that lately. One notable positive I thought I'd pass on...Softball season has started - a longtime enjoyable activity for me. However, especially as I've been pushing 40 over the past few years, the enjoyment has been tempered by numerous aches and pains and, in particular, back and neck injury. I'm very pleased to report that after two games, the aches and pains are noticeably lessened - and my back feels solid (and that even after some nut barreled into me at third base while I was taking a throw!)"
Rico started Oxycise after seeing the great results his wife had. (See Diana here) He lost 10 pounds and 2 pant sizes!
physical last July, my blood sugar level was high and my doctor challenged me to
lose 10 pounds or go on diabetes medication. I began Oxycising every day and in
my three month check-up had lost 10 pounds and my blood sugar level had dropped
to the normal range. I just had my second three month check-up and have lost an
additional three pounds and my blood sugar level is still in the normal range.
My doctor told me he didn't see any reason for any diabetes medication and
encouraged me to 'keep up the good work.' Even though I didn't lose as much
during the second three months, I still have noticed a reduction in body size.
My wife, Mary, who Oxycises every day also, says that she is beginning to see a
'defined' waistline on me now!
"I love Oxycise! because it doesn't take long every day, it is not strenuous,
and I always feel good afterwards. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. It
has certainly worked for me (and continues to)."

"Hi, I'm a regular user of Oxycise! and as a 48 yr old male can truly say that my abs have never looked better since doing it..."
"Hello all, I'm Barbara's husband. [See Barbara Schultz] Yes, I watched Barbara do Oxycise! for a year with considerable skepticism. I had seen her lose weight, but from my perspective 15 pounds was hardly losing weight. But she did keep it up and seemed to be fitter and that's what turned me around. Both Barbara and I have been taking Tae Kwondo for about three years and are now almost red belts (two levels below black belt). Tae Kwondo had helped me get in better shape e.g., flexibility. I also bicycle to work in the summer and generally drop five pounds every year, but then Christmas comes, and I'm sure you know the rest. So I started Oxycise! to get fitter with not much expectation of losing weight. Well, as Barbara has mentioned, I've lost almost 30 pounds (I seem to be at a plateau, but I am not in a hurry).
"I have to say it is great to be a thinner person. I have had to put seven new holes in my belt; I [went from] something like a comfortable fit at size 40 to a slightly snug size 34. My flexibility has improved greatly. At Tae Kwondo Class the acclaimed consensus is that I am the most improved adult in terms of flexibility. During our stretch warm-up I am able to stretch my side kick above my head. I have also beaten my record in bicycling home and am feeling fitter than I've felt for years.
"I was skeptical of some aspects of the breathing at first. Being a natural deep breather, I wasn't sure I wanted to try to 'sniff' in three times while I was tightening my abdomen. I think it took me some time to actually tone my abs enough that I could start doing it properly. I twigged on tucking the pelvis in, and lifting the abs. For the first two months all I could do was generally tighten my abs and hold my breath. Now however, I can feel the isotonic tension as I tighten and breathe....After about four months, I now feel that I have the breathing down pretty well, and am able to focus on making the positions more and more challenging.
"My experience of losing weight involved a focus on eating sensibly. I can't say I dieted, but I have been purposefully eating less. However, I have not denied myself in any extreme way. Oxycise seems to make reducing my eating and eating more sensibly relatively easy.
"In all, Oxycise! is great. It's only 20 minutes start to finish, no special equipment, I can do it every day (or almost 5/6 out of 7) comfortably, regardless of the weather. Best of all, I am fitter and more flexible....at 49 (and happy too) I think this is a very serious plus for a sense of overall well-being."
"Well, where to start? Around my 34th birthday my kidney decided to quit. After six years of suffering, I received a kidney from my sister, Florence, and started my road to recovery. My weight went down as the years passed, but I could never get my energy back or the fat off my middle. But this May of 2000, my wife and I were watching the program on TV and I called about ordering the program. May 23rd was the day I started the Oxycise! breathing program. I started with the basic positions, doing 30 reps a day for 30 days. It took me a week to understand the breathing technique, but once I got it my energy went through the roof. I have been waiting 14 years for my energy to come back; It seems that breathing has done the trick. Oh, by the way, I have lost four inches off my chest, one inch off my belly, and two and a half inches off my belt line. Lost ten pounds in 5 1/2 months. No diet for me, never again. My thought is: 'Breathe to Live'...."
