It didn’t take long before I began to shrink…
“Hi! My name is Faith and I wanted to share my oxycise success story!
“I started my consistent Oxycise journey a year ago on April 5, 2019. My starting weight was 319.2 lbs. I’m 55 currently and 5’8” tall. I was wearing a size 26W at that time. I started doing O! Once daily six days a week and being more mindful of choosing healthier foods although I didn’t and still don’t count calories. I eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m satisfied. My diet isn’t perfect but it’s 90 percent clean I’d say. Probably one of the biggest things I cut WAY down on was processed sugar.
“I’d have to say I noticed a huge sense of well being with my very first O! workout! That’s a HUGE deal for me as I’ve suffered from depression for many many years. It didn’t take long before I began to shrink….was off cholesterol medication….my depression meds have been cut in half too! I wish I’d actually measured myself but I more or less use my clothes as a measuring tape. Fast forward to today April 8, 2020. I’m now wearing a misses size 12, down -132 lbs. I feel wonderful! I’m stronger then ever!
“I had my muscle mass tested when I started my journey and continue to do so periodically. I was told that with a lot of weight loss it’s normal to lose some lean muscle. They just didn’t want more then 20 percent of my weight loss to be lean muscle. I’m happy to say I’ve kept my muscle loss to less than 10 percent which is well within the acceptable range! I haven’t lifted a single weight in this past year! Oxycise has done wonders for my lean muscle mass! I started out at obese category 3 and am now officially out of the obese range and continuing to lose! I’ll be at goal before long!
“My biggest tip is: CONSISTENCY! Just do it! Each day!! Anyone can find 15 minutes for their health! Think about it….15 minutes is 1 percent of your day!!! My motivation to just do it is how good I know I’m going to feel when it’s done and it goes by so quickly. My motto is: JUST PUSH PLAY.
“Thank you for such a wonderful program! I have to say I live in a small 600 sq ft 1 bedroom apt. I just don’t have the room for abcizers, exercise machines, weights etc. I own every Oxycise dvd and they take up very little space!!! No special clothes (I often O! in my pjs each morning), no expensive workout shoes, no nothing!!! The only one thing I invested in ($10) was a yoga strap which tucks away in my dresser drawer.
“I hope my story can encourage others! And please….JOIN THE OXYCISE FACEBOOK GROUP! They are a bunch of LOVELY encouraging people!!!”
Faith another oxycise success!
Oxycise! is something I can stick with for the rest of my life.
“I am 31 years old and have spent half my life trying to achieve and maintain weight loss. The problem was that nothing was ‘do-able’ long term. Anyone can go on a fad diet, but you can’t stay on one for the rest of your life. And joining the gym turned out to be a joke for me. I spent more money than time in all five I joined; I just couldn’t stick with it. When I looked in the mirror 30 days before my last birthday, I said to myself, ‘One last time I’ll try. If I’m successfull, great! If I’m not, I’ll resign to be overweight for the rest of my life.’
“Well I’m happy to say that I found Oxycise! I have lost 16 pounds, lowered my cholesterol level and blood pressure and am in better shape than I was at 15. I feel great and am convinced that Oxycise! is something I can stick with for the rest of my life.”
I have lost 35 pounds
“I have been on the program for almost six months along with my husband. We are seeing great results. We are both in our 60’s and it takes a bit longer to shape up but this program really works!!
“People really do notice and comment on how we both look. So glad we came across this program. I got the book from the local library… let it sit on the table for a couple of weeks. I thought that something this simple couldn’t work. Read it for the last week before taking it back and had the program ordered within a couple of days. The plus is that my energy level is up. Also we both are getting back into clothes we haven’t worn for a while.”
“This is an update. I am still very delighted with the Oxycise! program. I was sidetracked with a health problem for a while but am back to doing my O’s. I have lost 35 pounds. I am now totally in my normal weight range. My doctor was delighted with that since he had asked me if I wanted 3 or 6 months to get the weight off. Six months worked. My cholesterol went down 65 points just by losing weight and doing Oxycise! Jill’s book ‘Fuel for Success’ is a wonderful help. I just received my order of Oxycise! Level 3 and Level 4. I am looking forward to doing those too after watching the instructions on them. It will be great to alternate these videos with Level 1 and Level 2 for the exercises.
“I still haven’t taken any pictures of ‘after’. Big change since the ‘before’ pictures though.
“My husband is also on the program. I know he will enjoy the new levels too.”
“My weight loss was accomplished without dieting. I just ate in a healthy way and used a lot of Jill’s suggestions in her book ‘Fuel for Success!’ I have Oxycise! Levels 1 through 4, plus Abs and Upper Body workouts. Those are invaluable…
“I have a very important reason for keeping my weight off and keeping fit. There have been people who have had strokes on both sides of my family including my mother and father. Being at high risk, I feel that keeping those risk factors down may keep me in good health. My blood pressure is normal, cholesterol is going down nicely and my bone density is high. To keep it that way is a very good reason to continue with Oxycise!
“My weight is 123 lbs. on the picture taken last week. The before picture shows me when my weight bounced around from 155 to 160 lbs.
My cholesterol was down and my blood pressure was great!
“I had some exciting news this last week. I posted earlier in this thread about having Hashimoto’s disease. I have been quite discouraged because I haven’t seen much in the way of results. I am 45 yrs. old and 5′ 8″. I was weighing 160 lbs and climbing until I got on thyroid meds. Since then I have stayed about the same as far as weight. I began ‘breathing’ on May 1st, 7 weeks ago. I have had many discouraging days because I could see no results. But finally this last week my pants seemed just a little looser. I usually only weigh on Saturday, but come Friday morning I couldn’t resist. So, I weighed and was 2 lbs lighter and had lost 1 3/4”. That may not sound like much, but it was a lot for me!!!! I also had my doctor appointment on Friday and when I weighed on his scale I was 4 lbs. less than I had been on my last visit 2 months ago. My cholesterol was down and my blood pressure was great! It has to be due to the Oxycise! because I haven’t changed my diet at all.
“I try to do O! twice a day, but don’t always make it. However, I breathe whenever I can – especially whenever I drive anywhere, even if it’s just for 5 minutes. I believe O! works and if those of us with health problems just keep persevering we’ll get to our goal. If nothing else, I certainly feel better and more energetic from breathing.”
I have lost the 10 pounds that needed to be lost and many inches
“I want to thank you for making Oxycise! available to me. I received your system in late October and feel tremendously better! I had become concerned after my doctor had placed me on blood pressure and cholesterol medication. I had to lose at least 10 pounds to be within the acceptable body mass index scale. I was only 27 years old when placed on this medication and thought that something had to change! There is a history on both sides of my family with heart problems and I did not want heart disease to rear its ugly head in my direction!
“I saw your promotion of Oxycise! on ‘The Shopping Channel’ in Canada and decided that I could spare 15 minutes a day. Although progress is sometimes slow, I have just recently lost the 10 pounds that needed to be lost and many inches. I would like to still lose more, but I am patient. I have also changed my eating habits to include more vegetables, less fat and to drink a whole lot more water. Your program seems to inspire other healthy activities…my husband and I have decided to try to become pregnant in the near future.”
They talked about their firmer abdomens, improved posture, flexibility and range of motion of their joints
“Dear Jill Johnson,
“I am writing to tell you about the program I am running using Oxycise! and the great success my classes have experienced.
“My name is Teri Havener and I am an AFAA certified fitness instructor. I have personally worked out for 20 years and have worked in the fitness industry 10 years. I currently run the fitness department at On Top of the World, a large retirement community in Ocala, Florida. We have 25 pieces of Nautilus equipment, 10 treadmills, bunch of bikes, some free weights and a large array of fitness classes to chose from including; Tai Chi, Aquasize, 3 different levels of aerobics classes, etc.
“I first heard about Oxycise! from residents last summer. They brought me the Oxycise! ad from the Parade section of our local newspaper; the Ocala Star Banner. It made pretty big claims about weight loss. People seemed interested, so I decided to put it to the test. I organized a class around the Level One Oxycise! Program. In November, I trained 150 people to do Oxycise!. Breaking it down into groups of 20-25, we weighed and measured everyone. I explained thoroughly the breath and we practiced it together. Next, we went through the positions slowly giving everyone a chance to ask questions along the way. Working with seniors, my guidance gave them a better grasp of what they’re doing and confidence. After the initial training, they had 3 opportunities daily to view the Level One workout tape. I usually do the class with them and help with the cueing. Some were discouraged by the quick pace and felt they couldn’t keep up. I encouraged them to keep trying and not to worry about getting every little sniff or puff.
“In February, we weighed and measured everyone again. The results were not dramatic, though almost everyone lost some weight and inches. Take into consideration we conducted this experiment through the Holidays.
“What’s amazing are the other health benefits. Included is a copy of our community paper. On page 8 is an article I wrote about our results from the Oxycise! program (phase I). It will tell you about some of our impressive results. [See article below]
“Because of that article I had to schedule 6 more training sessions, so far. That’s another 150 people and we’re already getting results from the February 20th training group. One woman hasn’t slept more than 2 hours at a time for 8 years. She has tried to get help from doctors, sleeping clinics, even hypnotists, but nothing has worked. Well, the night before last she slept for 6 hours, a new record for her. A diabetic man was taking 6 insulin shots a day. After one week of Oxycise he is down to 4 shots a day.
“I hate to start the day without Oxycise. It wakes me up and gets me ready for the day. I think clearer and definitely have more energy. I feel firm through the waist and lower abdominal area. The staff and the residents of On Top of the World and myself are truly enjoying your program. Thanks!”

Article by Teri Havener
I am very pleased to share with you the results of our Oxycise! experiment.
“Oxycise! experiment? What’s Oxycise?” Please allow me to explain.
Oxycise! is a new exercise program that combines a deep breathing pattern with relatively easy isometric, toning and stretching exercise. It’s a 15-minute program to be done daily. The exercise positions are standing, sitting on the floor and using the wall. The positions may be modified so you don’t have to get on the floor. There isn’t any aerobic activity involved—no running, jumping or constant movement. The idea is to increase the oxygen level in your system to speed up your metabolism, resulting in weight loss.
The advertisements made some incredible claims: “36 lbs. loss in two months, 15 lbs in three months.” One woman claims to have lost 142 lbs. Jill Johnson, the creator of the program, claims to have lost 45 lbs. in six months.
I was skeptical, but residents kept asking me about the program. I decided, let’s put it to the test. I trained almost 150 people to do the program through November. We weighed and measured everybody. On Feb. 6 we weighed and measured again. Unfortunately, only about 30 came back for the second measuring. Some chose to do the program at home. I’m not aware how they have progressed. Weight loss was not dramatic over all. Almost all lost at least a couple pounds, some more. I suppose that’s not too bad considering this experiment was conducted over the holiday season. I was more impressed by the inches lost, particularly in the lower abdomen and hip area. Even more impressive were some of the other health improvements. Everyone seems to agree that they have more energy. Some commented that they didn’t feel as good on days they skipped Oxycise! People with sleeping disorders or difficulties completely eliminated the problem or saw great improvement.
One gal with lymphodema saw a lot of improvement. Swelling in her arm had gone down. Her doctor wanted to know what she was doing. So, she demonstrated some of the Oxycise! program. A test revealed that her blood oxygen level had gone up. Scientific proof!
I listened as they talked about their firmer abdomens, improved posture, flexibility and range of motion of their joints. Someone said that her chiropractor noticed that the shape of her body was changing and wanted to know what she was doing. Singers and those with breathing problems were able to get more air. Someone else said she used to get cramps in her calves all the time. Not any more! It made me realize I used to get a cramp in my left food during a certain stretch. Not any more! Several people said their blood pressure went down. One man told me his blood glucose level had gone down from 130 to 103. Also, his cholesterol came down from 220 to 202. This has been the best report he has gotten from his doctor in years. Wow! I was amazed at what I was hearing. I asked the group if they were interested in continuing the program. A resounding “yes” came forth.
We both feel better than we have in years!
“My husband (age 66) and I (56) started Oxycising on January 1st. We have also been following the suggested eating plan and have lost 22 and 15 lbs. respectively.”
Update from Sandy:
“To date I have lost 20 lbs and reached my goal weight and have been maintaining. My husband has lost 25 lbs and is 10 lbs from his goal.
“The program works and the suggested eating plan is very easy to follow. My husband has been able to come off blood pressure medication he has been on for several years and his cholesterol dropped 40 points!
“We both feel better than we have in years! We tell everyone about Oxycise! because the change in our appearance is so noticeable they want to know what we have been doing.”
I never want to lose this feeling
“As an ACE certified fitness instructor who has taught up to 9 classes a week for over 12 years, I can tell you that Oxycise! works as well, if not better, than most ‘traditional’ aerobic workouts. When done properly, the Oxycise! breathing technique forces much more oxygen into the body than jumping around on steps, or floors. HDL cholesterol is the good cholesterol in our bodies which helps to rid our bodies of the LDL cholesterol. HDL is only increased through aerobic exercise. My HDL cholesterol is now 72, which is very good, and when I was teaching 9 classes/week my HDL was 61. For it to increase by 11 points is incredible and Oxycise! is the only aerobic exercise I have been doing for the past two years. Oxycise!’s abdominal tightening technique has also healed my “recti-split” that was caused by having two very large babies. I was never able to heal my “recti-split” with traditional abdominal work. I have also lost 12 pounds and kept it off in these last two years. Oxycise! energizes me much more than all those aerobic classes did and it has also controlled by rheumatoid arthritis. I have not had a bad flare-up since I have been Oxycising.
“‘Aerobic’ means ‘with oxygen’ and in order to burn fat a lot of oxygen must be present. In traditional aerobic classes, you don’t even start burning fat until about 12 minutes into the workout because you are increasing your oxygen intake at a very slow pace initially. And many people work at a much higher level than they should and end up working anaerobically, thus causing a shortage of oxygen and consequently not burning fat. Good luck to all of you who are making Oxycise! work for you. It can and it will work for everyone IF DONE PROPERLY.
“If this program didn’t work, I would have gone back to traditional aerobics a long time ago. Doing Oxycise! keeps me in good shape and allows me to be there for my family. They are the most important thing in my life right now and I am glad I don’t have to run off to the gym several times a week to work out. This program has been the greatest thing that has happened to me in the way of fitness since ‘sliced (whole wheat) bread’…”
Update from Sue:
“I participated in Jill’s infomercial and have always known that Oxycise is the best exercise to increase the quality of my life that I have ever experienced. I have done many other workouts, and taught for 12 years as a fitness instructor. I eat very healthy and walk my dogs almost every day but the weight doesn’t come off until I get serious about Oxycise.
“I recently gained weight and actually bought some larger clothes because mine were getting tight. I was so mad at myself, I promised myself I’d do oxycise every morning no matter what. Well, it’s only been about 3 weeks since I’ve been working out every morning and I’ve already lost at least 7 pounds and all the larger sized clothes I bought are too big and I’m back in some things I almost got rid of because they were so tight.
“I don’t know why I ever stop doing Oxycise. I know it works and I feel and look so much better when I’m consistent with the program. My muscle tone is coming back strong and I just feel great. I never want to lose this feeling and even when I was going to a gym working out 1.5 hours a day for 4 days a week I didn’t get these results. And this is just working out 20 minutes a day. Just amazing. Love it.”
I look like a different person
“I have been doing the Oxycise Level 1 for nearly two years now. I recently ordered the Level 2 and mentioned my success with the Oxycise! program to the kind woman at your Colorado office. I’m afraid I didn’t catch her name. But she encouraged me to contact you and share my story.
“I am a 49 year old male with Systemic Lupus. It struck me when I turned 40. I’ll spare you the long story, but it changed my life drastically. In fact, it nearly killed me before the doctors were able to come up with a diagnosis and thus treat the disease. For years I languished under heavy medication, particularly steroids. If you know about steroids you probably know that they have a bloating effect and increase the appetite. And the symptoms of lupus include arthritis so any kind of exercise was pretty much out of the question. Needless to say, I got huge. My bone density decreased. I was terribly fatigued. Cholesterol and blood pressure increased to the point where I had to take extra meds to keep them in check. I was a slave to dozens of pills a day.
“I had done some breathwork in the past and was a believer in Yoga. But not an avid practitioner. When I saw an ad for Oxycise!, I thought it made sense and I’d give it a try. After a week or two I noticed a slight drop in weight. After a month, I knew I was on to something. I kept up with it daily and it became such a joy to watch the pounds drop. It was only about 3lbs. a month, but I knew that a slow loss could mean a slow regain if I for some reason would stop. I lost 35 lbs. last year. I look like a different person. My blood pressure plummeted which I consider a direct result of Oxycise! I’m no longer on BP meds. My cholesterol also dropped significantly, whether it had to do with Oxycise! I’m not sure, but the loss of weight probably helped. That plus a newfound conscientiousness about overall health, such as eating better. My energy level has increased. Just doing the Oxycise! is uplifting. I still have lupus and its symptoms, am still on several drugs – there’s no cure for that I’m afraid. But what Oxycise! has done for me could help other lupus patients.
“I would like to the spread the word about Oxycise! in the Lupus community … Please pass this along to whom it may concern. I’m anxious to receive my level two video. I got an e-mail that it is on its way. Also, thank you for putting on the newsletter list. I wish I’d known about it in the past.”
Dramatic improvement of my cholesterol level
“The results were astonishing! I lost 8 pounds in three weeks, 3 inches off my “wasteland” in the same time and my stamina increased to where I was able to double my running mileage! The muscle definition was visibly improved also, and within two months my body fat composition decreased 7 percent. An unexpected benefit was the dramatic improvement of my cholesterol level which has gone down 80 points according to my last physical. Thank you for teaching me this!”
