No-Sweat Way for Seniors to Shape Up
All You Need is a Chair – And the Air You Breathe
Jill knows what it’s like to be fat. She was chubby as a child, hefty-size as a teen, very plump in her school teacher days and jumbo as a new mom.
The former 200-pounder had been searching for years for a weight-loss program that would work until a health crisis forced her to create her own. Jill was facing back surgery due to her weight, and – after months of research – she developed a remarkably simple 15-minute-a-day fitness system of deep breathing exercises.
“To my amazement, I lost 45 pounds in six months without giving up the foods I loved but by merely increasing my oxygen intake,” said Jill, 45 who maintains a slenderific 125-pound figure.
Jill’s program follows a simple fact of life that allows anyone to lose weight. Simply put: Breathing in high doses of oxygen kick-starts your body cells into burning more of the food you eat – and even stored fat – for energy. But most people, especially heavy people, don’t breathe in enough air.
“Although our lungs can hold two gallons of oxygen, most of us breathe in only two pints,” said Jill, whose system lets your lungs fill with fat-burning oxygen.
Her system was hailed by experts as a breath of fresh air in a world of body-jolting exercise routines and diet fads.
Now Jill has created a new two-DVD package, especially for seniors and for all those who have a hard time bending. With these techniques, no on is ever too old to shape up.
In fact, you can start losing weight and feeling great right now, while you’re sitting in your chair reading this article.
Place your hand on your abdomen. What do you feel? Not a whole lot of movement, is there? Now, take a deep breath and exhale. Did you feel your abdomen expand and contract? Increasing the oxygen to your brain is really invigorating and healthy. This time, when you exhale, I want you to purse your lips (like you’re blowing through a trumpet), and feel what happens to your abdomen.
Inhale, your stomach should be expanding. Now, exhale with pursed lips. Do you feel your abs tighten? Isn’t that wonderful? It’s almost like doing sit ups without hurting your neck or back. In fact, that’s exactly the result of this simple breathing exercise… flat abs without pain.
In Jill’s DVDs, she teaches you a few extra tips to really tighten and tone, but you can start doing this right now, on your own.
Do this simple beginners breathing whenever you remember and your abs will begin to tighten and strengthen.
Are you ready to add one more touch to the basic breathing exercise?
Try lifting your legs while you’re breathing. This will expand the exercise to strengthening your quadriceps, and help tone those abs even more. Go ahead and get creative. Try different positions, lifting your arms, twisting, flexing or pointing your toes, stretch your legs in diffierent directions. Wahoo! You are getting a great exercise while sitting in your chair.
Make sure to listen to your body and do slow stretches that help you increase flexibility and strength.
Take Bill S., who’s 81. Bill crows that the rewards of the “Oxycise!” system “have been terrific.” Not only has his energy increased, he boasts that his body looks so good, “I would not be reluctant to pose nude alongside many of the average 35-to-50-year-old men.”
That would come as not surprise to the residents of Colonnades at On Top of the World, a Florida retirement community. Not only did inches melt away from their tummies and hips – thanks to “Oxycise!” many of them report they are sleeping better or are experiencing improved blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A diabetic now takes less insulin. A woman plagued by foot cramps is cramp-free. People who were experiencing breathing problems find they are breathing better.
“I was amazed,” said Teri Havener, Colonnades at On Top of the World’s fitness director, who started the seniors on the “Oxycise!” system at their request and monitored their progress.
Teri admits that at first she was skeptical that a system so simple could work. But when the seniors in her class reported increased energy, felt healthier and sported measurably slimmer figures, she not only became a believer – she now uses “Oxycise!” herself.
With “Oxycise! Easy Does It” you don’t have to follow a sugar-free, low-fat or low-carbohydrate diet, take pills or drink shakes. And you don’t have to jump up and down to disco music. All you have to do is gentle deep-breathing and toning exercises in the comfort of your own home. And you don’t need fancy or expensive exercise equipment – all you need is a chair and the air you breathe, which is free.
|“Testers found that Jill’s painless 15-minute program burned 140% more calories
than the same time spent on a stationary bicycle.”
In the first “Oxycise! Easy Does It” video, Jill teaches the deep breathing routines and the simple stretching and body-squeezing exercises done in combination with them. The second video takes you through the 15-minute daily workout that helped Colonnades at On Top of the World seniors increase their energy, lose inches and feel healthier.
At 74, Lila Babbidge lost inches off her stomach and thighs in just a few weeks. “I look wonderful,” gushes Lila. Her husband was so proud, he took pictures of Lila in a two-piece bathing suit and hung them on the wall.
Jill’s program is praised by participants and healthcare professionals alike. Says Dr. Robert W. Rigg, Jr., M.D. from Canoga Park, CA. “I have seen the positive and permanent results from “Oxycise!” and definitely recommend it for anyone who desires to lose extra weight in an effective and safe manner.”
What’s more, a recent exercise-science study at nationally known university has given the “Oxycise!” system a scientific thumbs-up. Testers found that Jill’s painless 15-minute program burned up 140 percent more calories than the same time spent grunting away on a stationary bicycle.
Incredibly, Debbie Stancil, 48, who was so heavy she was virtually trapped in her recliner, lost a mind-boggling 157 pounds the “Oxycise!” way. “I feel like a new person and like I have been let out of prison,” writes Debbie.
So, what are you waiting for? With the “Oxycise!” system you have everything to gain but unwanted weight.
“Since I’ve been doing Oxycise! I feel like a young chick! I’ve been inviting some of my friends to our home to do the program and we’re getting so many people we may need to go to the community center. I feel so much better it is just amazing. I’m hooked!” Shirley Booth, age 64
“I used to wear size 44 pants and am now wearing size 34. I now can race my granddaughter around the park instead of sitting on the bench. Wow!” Smokey Martin, age 52
“I am already down to the size I want and look wonderful. I feel better and have a nice, tight tummy and thighs. People think I’m in my fifties. I’m so grateful for Oxycise! I have fought weight all my life and tried everything, but this is the best and easiest yet and it makes you feel so energized!” Lila Babbidge, age 74
"Last summer I saw one of your ads in the Grand Forks, ND paper. I cut it out and when I got home I ordered the video tape, book and cassette tape. I'm 67 years old and wanted to lose about 5-7 pounds and couldn't take it off. I have been so happy with the Oxycise! ["Easy Does It"] video level one. Since August last year I've only missed about 15 days of not doing the level one. I have lost the 7 pounds, 2 inches off my waist and 2 1/2 inches off my hips. In November I was diagnosed with emphysema so the benefits are double for me... I can do the breathing easier since I'm short of breath. ...I think the slower rate is better for people like myself with lung disease. I'm so grateful for the Oxycise!, I'm breathing easier and I'm maintaining my desired weight. It is great. Thank you." Sincerely, Jo Ann Riewer, Nebraska, age 67
"I love my 'Easy Does It' Oxycise! and I have all three tapes. A year ago I couldn't walk or do any of my regular exercise because I had a stroke in May of 2001 and my left side is affected, that is weak. I started Oxycise! in September 2002 and have been doing it faithfully ever since, 5 to 6 times a week. I was about 125 and now stay a comfortable 115 or 116 and can wear my size 10 slacks comfortably. Thanks to Oxycise!" Gratefully, Joan Groff, age 74, Ohio
