What is HYPOXI
The simple 30 minute workout is safe, pain free and completely natural – helping your body to tap into stubborn fat stores while you work out. In just 12 sessions, clients can lose up to 30 centimetres from their problem areas – more than what you would generally see from conventional training alone.
Before HYPOXI, no training method could be shown to reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. However, an independent study has shown that a HYPOXI workout is significantly superior to a conventional workout when it comes to targeting fat and cellulite in stubborn areas. In fact, HYPOXI has been hailed the “natural alternative to liposuction” by Oxygen magazine.
HYPOXI has a cult following of users worldwide, including a raft of celebrities like Robbie Williams and Cheryl Cole.
Why HYPOXI works?
Short of going under the knife, exercise is critical for sustainable weight loss. But many of us don’t like the idea of going to the gym or having a personal trainer. And when we do try to exercise, we don’t see results in the areas that bother us the most. This is where HYPOXI can help.
HYPOXI is the brainchild of Dr Norbert Egger, an esteemed Austrian sport scientist. Over the course of many years working in the weight loss industry, he noticed that many women struggled to reduce fat in their problem areas of the stomach, hips, buttocks and thighs despite regular exercise and a healthy diet. As a sport scientist, Egger knew that good circulation, exercise and a healthy lifestyle are critical to achieve weight loss in a specific area. With this knowledge in mind, he set about developing the revolutionary training concept that is HYPOXI.

The registration of HYPOXI’s Patent Number E.P 0906774131 on 3 October 1997 marked a new era in the health and weight loss industry. HYPOXI is the FIRST and ONLY patented device to incorporate vacuum technology with exercise to achieve real targeted fat burning – making it a clear industry leader.
Exerts of just a few studies on the benefits of HYPOXI are set out in this section, so you can see the proof first hand.
Independent study at the Medical Prevention Centre Hamburg, 2010
In 2010, Professor Christoph M. Bamberger and his team from the Medical Prevention Centre in Hamburg set out to establish whether HYPOXI really is more effective at targeted fat and cellulite reduction than a regular workout.
Parameters of the study
Twenty women and sixteen men were enrolled in the study. All candidates were placed on the same nutritional programme.
Group A: Undertook HYPOXI S120 training 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time
Group B: Undertook exercise on a stationary bike 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time
Group A: Undertook HYPOXI Vacunaut training 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time
Group B: Undertook exercise on a treadmill 3 times per week for 30 minutes a time
SUMMARY OF FINDINGS
At the conclusion of 4 weeks, all candidates were subjected to rigorous measurement and analysis. Professor Bamberger and his team made the following findings:
Reduction in circumference (HIPS, BUTTOCKS AND THIGHS):
The total circumference lost by the HYPOXI group (an average of 13.1cm) was significantly more than for the participants in the control group (an average of 4.8cm)
Reduction in circumference (THIGH):
The circumference lost by the HYPOXI group from each thigh (an average of 2.9cm) was very significantly larger than for the participants in the control group (an average of just 0.7cm)
Reduction in circumference (ABS & HIPS):
The circumference lost by the HYPOXI group from the abdomen and hips (an average of 7.4cm) was very significantly larger than for the participants in the control group (an average of just 2.7cm)
Reduction in circumference (ABS & HIPS):
The circumference lost by the HYPOXI group from the abdomen and hips (an average of 9.4cm) was very significantly larger than for the participants in the control group (an average of just 2.9cm)
Professor Bamberger concluded that while both conventional exercise and HYPOXI can result in weight loss over 4 weeks, the effects are better with HYPOXI. He said:
“with regard to fat in the targeted zones, HYPOXI is significantly superior to a conventional workout. HYPOXI is a scientific method for fat reduction on problem zones.”
Independent study using MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
In a controlled study conducted by Landeskrankenanstalten Salzburg, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) was used to measure and visually demonstrate the fat reduction achieved with HYPOXI-Training.
The test was conducted over a two week period, over which time the subjects carried out eight HYPOXI-Training sessions in the L250. In order to reliably measure the fat reduction over this time, an MRI was taken prior and then subsequent to the completion of the HYPOXI treatments.
It is apparent from these MR images that the thickness of the fat surrounding the subject’s lower body noticeably reduced on the completion of the HYPOXI L250 training sessions.
These magnetic resonance images coupled with the table of average results below, confirm that the circumference loss achieved with HYPOXI is not attributed to fluid loss, but rather the result of real fat degradation.

Landmark study Into the effects of HYPOXI-Training, 1998
In 1998, a scientific trial was conducted to compare the results in targeted fat loss and cellulite reduction achieved with HYPOXI-Training against those achieved with conventional exercise.
The study comprised of 530 women between the ages of 25 to 55, and the average weight of the candidates was 65kg. The group was split in two, with half undertaking conventional exercise on a reclined bike, and the other half using HYPOXI. Both groups had to follow the same calorie controlled diet. The group was monitored for a period of six months.
From these results it is evident that those who participated in HYPOXI-Training were able to concentrate their circumference loss to the specific problem area of the body, in contrast to conventional exercise.
- those participants who undertook training with Vacunaut achieved up to 3 and a half times greater circumference loss around the stomach area than the controlled sample who undertook conventional exercise; and
- those participants who undertook training in the L250 achieved on average a 3 times higher loss of circumference in the area of the lower body than the controlled sample who undertook conventional exercise.
This study was the first to demonstrate HYPOXI’s ability to achieve targeted fat loss results for clients.
