Who is Patrick McKeown?
Patrick’s book, The Oxygen Advantage (published in fourteen languages) combines the simulation of high-altitude training and specifically-formulated exercises which empower readers to improve their corporate and exercise performance. For the first time, individuals are afforded a reliable and accurate means to measure their progress using the Body Oxygen Level Test, enabling them to address poor breathing habits; understand in simple terms how oxygen is released to working muscles, and to practice breath hold exercises that naturally increase aerobic and anaerobic capacity. A summary of the science can be found at http://oxygenadvantage.com/science/
