Have you ever watched a baby breathe? As in really watched the way it moves and how effortlessly it breathes into it's entire body? (Lately I have babies on the brain-;-)
We all start our lives knowing how to effortlessly and fully breathe. But as time goes on, for one reason or another, we subconsciously tighten-up all the muscles that help us breathe deeply.
Many of us hold our breath throughout the day... whether it is to cope with pain, suppress our feelings, or brace ourselves in the midst stress.
The result is - we end up taking short shallow breaths that rob our cells of the oxygen they so desperately need for optimal functioning. It's like we unconsciously put our brains and our bodies on a perpetual dimmer switch.
And that can affect all aspects of our lives - our performance, our happiness and even our relationships.
So, the question is... what can we do to reverse that trend and get back to breathing deeply and fully like a baby?
Being pregnant and experiencing a lot of changes in my body I have had to change my workouts. These changes have led me to incorporate a breathing system that is making a big difference in the way I feel both during and after my workouts.
It's true! And the benefits are awesome.
In a nutshell the MetaZone System is a technique that uses deep nasal breathing, akin to Ujjaya breath with your your exercise of choice!! Seems pretty simple right? It is and here are a few of the benefits;
- Increased power and endurance by maximizing your lung capacity and respiratory efficiency.
- Increased performance levels at lower heart rates and breath rates
- Recover faster for greater gains

My husband and I both are using the MetaZone System in conjunction with a TRX training system and they seem as if they were made for each other!
Here is what my husband, Camp Boswell, has to say about it: "I like using MetaZone and TRX together because the focus and attentiveness they each require creates an even, steady workout flow that results in a calm meditative state while giving me more power and energy!" -Camp Boswell
