In this episode, we take a deep dive into breathing techniques, cold exposure and heat exposure. While new health and fitness trends are always popping up, we’re taking it back to the basics with our guest, Kimmy Moss. Kimmy is a coach and leads the Breath & Exposure program at Deuce Gym. “You can go weeks without eating food, days without drinking water but how many minutes can you go without breathing?” - Kimmy Moss. Kimmy really challenges us to think about something we haven’t paid much attention to on the regular: our breathing patterns.
Kimmy is also a huge advocate for cold exposure. From her college soccer years, she had naturally been drawn to the benefits of incorporating cold body dunks into her routine. Now as an XPT Level 3 Certified Coach, she teaches students how to conquer their fears of the ice bath using breath as a tool to get their bodies and minds through the stress of cold exposure.
