XPT: Breathe, Move, Recover, Fuel, Connect

XPT Performance Breathing

Breathing is the foundation of life, influencing every system and cell in the body. Proper breathing patterns can improve health, cognitive function, motor skills, mobility, overall fitness, longevity, reduce pain, mitigate injury, enhance sleep quality and change psychological state. However, due to the conveniences of modern society and lack of knowledge in current medical and fitness professional education, the vast majority of people breathe sub optimally.

XPT takes a multi-dimensional approach to breathing to allow health and fitness professionals to assess, correct, prescribe and adapt training to fit any client’s needs. We arm fitness professionals with the knowledge to understand breathing for basic human function and to create context for application across a wide spectrum of goals and activities. XPT Performance Breathing coaches possess the tools to correct breathing dysfunction and create optimal breathing patterns for every client.
