The rate at which I lose weight is astounding!
I love Oxycise! In my youth I was a gym junkie, doing pounding workouts that were high intensity. Now at age 57, those kinds of workouts do not appeal anymore, but I still want all the benefits of increased energy, feeling good and burning fat that the gym used to give me.
Enter Oxycise! The rate at which I lose weight is astounding! It literally falls off me! I burn fat at a FAR, FAR greater rate now at 57 than I did in my 20s, 30s and 40s. Who says that weight is hard to lose as you get older?
I used to go to the gym 5 times a week, do weights, circuits, boxing classes, spin classes and would get LESS benefit and lose weight at a slower rate than I do now just by doing this beautiful breathing workout. I love that I no longer have to go anywhere, wear special clothes and spend a lot of money on memberships. I love being able to do it from the comfort of my own home at a time that suits me. I love that I no longer have to set aside 2 hours a day for the gym, because doing a full Oxycise workout takes less time than just the drive to the gym.
I have lost 26 pounds and have good tone in my muscles without lifting weights. When I first started I could only do a couple of exercises, then I’d have to stop because I felt dizzy or nauseous. I would rest for a bit, then continue. Each day it became easier and easier as my lung capacity increased and I became stronger, so now I do a whole routine, no trouble at all! My energy has increased, I feel happier, fitter, more positive and so motivated and stretching daily keeps my body flexible and supple. I went on holidays recently and even did it at the resort!
I also love that it’s no impact so my body is not suffering from torn ligaments, sprained ankles (can’t tell you how many sprained ankles I got at the gym!) or any sore muscles. I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars over the years on losing weight. You name it, I’ve tried it. From expensive gym memberships, to every diet that ever came out, to gadgets, pills, shakes, going to health retreats, hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, Overeaters Anonymous, acupuncture, Tapping for weight loss, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and so many other things. You can imagine the time, the energy and the $ investment!
Then I stumble onto Oxycise one day while surfing the internet and voila! I find something that takes a small amount of time, that has a minimal cost and actually works! Truly, Oxycise is the BEST thing I have discovered for my health in years. It is not a fad diet, it is not a scam, it just teaches you how to breathe properly and deeply so that you turn your body into a fat burning machine. It’s amazing how great you feel by breathing fresh oxygen! I bought Level 1 and O in the car to start with, then I signed up for the online streaming so I could try them all. I absolutely love the Upper Body Flexibility and just want to do it every day. It feels soooooo good!
I wanted something I could do in the comfort of my home without having to join a gym…I have found it!
“Since starting Oxycise! I have lost 10 pounds and 11 inches…Plus, I have had a ton of other benefits. My skin is brighter, my eyes are brighter, I have a lot more energy, and I feel so much thinner! I actually see muscles for the first time since high school. (I was on the swim team in high school and swam or worked with weights every day.) It’s hard to believe that I have only lost 10 pounds…it feels like so much more! 🙂 My clothes are actually loose! I have gone from a size 14 to a size 12 in jeans and pants (I am 5’11”). For the first time that I can remember, I actually bought a medium shirt instead of a large! The dresses in my closet that were tight are now loose. I will be visiting my mom soon, and I am taking some of my clothes so she can tailor them for me…they are just too loose! 🙂
“My ultimate goal is to get into a comfortable size 10. However, I am not in any hurry. I know that slow weight loss is the best weight loss because your body adjusts as you get there. Plus, it is much easier to maintain if you lose slowly. I am 28 and my husband and I plan to start a family in the next year or so. I plan to continue O! throughout every pregnancy and throughout life. While my friends are out walking in the heat of summer, I will be O!ing in the comfort of my AC. And yes, I have told them about Oxycise!, but they haven’t really caught on yet. I plan to be a living example of how it can work when done consistently.
“My mother-in-law is visiting right now and can’t get over how good I look…She is going to try Oxycise! tonight when I do my workout. Then, we plan to look at the website so she can order the L1 tapes!
“Thanks for all your help and your tips. And thanks to Jill for creating this wonderful program…AND sharing it! Oxycise! is the first workout video I have ever ordered…boy did I hit the jackpot!! I now own L1, L2, L3 and B&T1.
“I’m sorry for the ‘book’, but I am just so excited about O! and what it has done for me so far. I wanted something I could do in the comfort of my home without having to join a gym…I have found it!
Later Cherisse was featured in a First for Women article about Oxycise!:
Posing for family photo after her daughter’s baptism, Cherisse Smyser felt on top of the world. With her beautiful baby, family and friends by her side and wearing a new outfit, she was beaming. But later when she saw the developed pictures, she was shocked by how she looked. “Months had passed since the delivery, so I could no longer blame those pounds on baby weight.”
Deciding she finally needed to get healthy for her family, Cherisse turned to Oxycise. “I was skeptical that breathing could help me lose weight, but I needed a workout I could do at home without a lot of equipment,” she explains. So she did the techniques every evening and in the car during her morning commute. Soon, she dropped 40 pounds. “I never would have thought something so simple could help me lose weight, but it did!”
I have lost 40 lbs. I am a true believer in this program.
“I’ve owned some of the Oxycise works for the last 16 years. I remembered when I first started using the workout 16 years ago, I noticed the definition in my legs immediately. I knew they worked at that time. I have been off and on over the years in using these workouts. When I use the workouts I always have success. I hate to say it but I am like others and get off track and I don’t stay with the program.
“December of 2015 Oxycise had a sale and I purchased all of the DVDs. I had the old VHS copies and only a few of them. January 2016 I decided I’ve had enough and started with the workouts again. Thank you for creating these workouts. I love them. I have been consistently doing the workouts for the last year and I have lost 40 lbs. I really think it is because of these workouts.
“I am a true believer in this program. I have more energy and I never get sick. I’ve done my own studying on the increase of oxygen and when you have an oxygenated body there’s no room for illness and disease. I also sleep way better. I wake up feeling energized and refreshed. I am more positive and it helps my mood. I am forever grateful for this program for so all of these reasons. These only take 20 minutes and I know I can always fit them into my day. I’m always glad I do!!!😊”
Thanks again Jill,
A satisfied and over the top happy customer
I’m a real mom with a real life and a real body. This program works. Period.
It took me almost a year after Kelly told me about Oxycise before I bit the bullet and started it. In that year I joined a gym and I worked out 3-6 days a week, huffing, puffing, lifting weights, and participating in the different classes the gym offered. I was determined to shed those extra pounds and inches that were making my clothes tight and killing my self-confidence.
Frustrated, disappointed, and completely discouraged all describe how I felt after 9 months of hitting the gym. All that work and I could barely tell a difference in my body. Where were my results? I’m a busy, work-at-home mom with two active little boys. The two hours I was spending at the gym everyday seemed pointless. I felt defeated and thought I would have to just accept my new shape and size as the “new me.” I hated it.
Out of desperation, I ordered Oxycise. After spending 2 hours at the gym, 15 minutes a day seemed worth a shot. I was shocked at how quickly I began to see results. Within a week of doing Oxycise for 15 minutes a day I lost 2.5 inches and was starting to see more muscle tone that I did in 9 months of lifting weights at the gym! And it was lean muscle, not the bulky muscle I got from the gym. That was all the motivation I needed to become totally committed to making Oxycise a part of my daily life. And I knew I could keep that commitment because it was only 15 minutes a day! After three months of doing Oxycise (almost) everyday, I lost 10 pounds and 10 3/4 inches!
Now, 10 months later, I’ve shed 31 lb and 34 inches! I never thought I would have this kind of muscle tone and get rid of the bumpy cellulite. But I have! I had abs hiding under that squishy belly! And in another month or two, I might actually be the weight listed on my driver’s license.
I tell all my friends, if I weren’t seeing these results for myself I would think it was a scam. But it’s not! This is the real thing! No pills, no weird diets, no crazy workouts that leave you so stiff you can’t walk for a week (and what mom can afford that?), and I don’t have to spend hours at the gym getting all sweaty. Just 15 minutes a day of breathing and squeezing.
I feel more energetic, my skin looks better, and my clothes are all getting too big. I never thought I would have that problem. Time to go shopping for new skinny jeans! I couldn’t be more pleased with my Oxycise results. I have told all my girlfriends and just about anyone else who will listen to check this program out. There is nothing else like it! I’m a real mom with a real life and a real body. This program works. Period.
UPDATE: Five years later and I am STILL doing Oxycise (almost) daily. I just love it. It saves me from migraines and it keeps me fit and toned. It fits into my schedule and my life. I’ve never stuck with an exercise program longer than 30 days, much less 5 years. That says a lot! Breathe and squeeze for life, Baby!
I don’t have to do any cardio at the gym any more, it saves a lot of time!
“I’m a personal trainer and I’ve had such great results with oxycise! I basically don’t do regular cardio anymore because hours of running would always leave me only hungrier and very tired. I only do weight lifting and oxycise and I love the results! Oxycise energized me too so much, even though my 2 year old daughter isn’t the best sleeper and I often felt tired after a bad night of sleep, I’m now always energized and able to do so much in my day.
“I started doing oxycise when I just got pregnant and I had very healthy and easy pregnancy. Even though I’m not very pain tolerant I was able to give birth all on my own without any medications because I learned how to breathe properly. Then I stopped doing oxycise for some time and gained some fat a few months after stopping, despite working out at the gym 6x a week. In my opinion it was because regular exercise especially a lot of cardio really tired me out and I was hungry and tired all the time, especially as a new mom.
“I started doing oxycise! again and went down by 5% body fat in just 3 weeks which is amazing, and lost about 7 lbs without overtraining and without a need to leave my baby with someone else to workout. So total it’s been about 3 years of doing oxycise. I have pictures attached, thank you again for sharing it!
“Without oxycise it would take a very strict diet plus a lot of cardio to support low body fat percentage but with oxycise I can let myself indulge where I want and I don’t have to do any cardio at the gym any more, it saves a lot of time!
I felt like I would never be comfortable with my body again
“Hello! My name is Tiffany. I am 30 years old, and a mother of two. After two very difficult and high risk pregnancies (the majority of them spent on bed rest), I was frustrated with my weight. I was not obese, but I was overweight, and did not feel good about my appearance. I grew up as a swimmer, and played water polo in high school. I have always had physically challenging jobs in the past which helped keep me fit, and I LOVE to be active, so not being able to exercise during my pregnancies was awful. I gained well over 50 pounds with each pregnancy. When I got pregnant with my second baby, I still had not lost 20 of the pounds I gained with my first. My second baby was 9 lbs 11 ounces at birth, and I had to have a c-section. The c-section caused me to lose a lot of strength in my stomach muscles. My tummy felt very stretched out, and I felt like I would never be comfortable with my body again.
“When my second baby was about 5 months old, I discovered Oxycise. I went to the website, read the testimonials, and read the history of how Jill came up with the system. The whole thing just made sense to me, and I was eager to give it a shot. I’m so glad I did. I went from a U.S. size 14 jeans, to a size 10 and lost 23 pounds within a few months time. I now am wearing a size 8, and have a goal of a healthy size 6. I feel great, and every time I Oxycise I feel so much energy afterwards, and it immediately boosts my mood. My skin feels firmer, my cellulite has faded, and my tummy muscles are stronger than they were before my c-section. I am so grateful for this system. Yoga is great for your body, and I think of this program as yoga with a twist, because adding the unique oxycise breathing technique, along with the positions is such a huge fat burner, and works way faster than anything else I have ever tried. Thank you so much Jill, Aubrey, and the rest of the Oxycise! team. I am a huge believer in this system, it is tried and true in my book, and I recommend it to all my friends when they ask me, ‘What have you been doing?’
“The first photo is me right before my c-section with my 9 lbs 11 ounce son, who is now almost 2. The second photo was taken a few days ago. I know the before photo is crazy, but I wanted to show others who are having body issues after pregnancy, that you can go from feeling totally hopeless, to having the results you want, and loving your body again.”
Nothing I’ve ever done got rid of the cellulite until Oxycise! came around!
“I was introduced to Oxycise! by my mother-in-law, as my husband’s Aunt Jean is the older lady on the video tape. I was very skeptical until I watched the tape and realized what Jill was saying is true.
“I started doing Oxycise! in January and in two months lost 36 lbs. I notice my energy level going up, lower back strengthen, my outlook on life better and all the cellulite I had on my thighs and butt is gone! Nothing I’ve ever done got rid of the cellulite until Oxycise! came around!
“I also have 4 young kids and I don’t take I time to spend on exercise and with Oxycise! I can take 15 min out of my day. I will never go back to exercise again. Oxycise! will always be a big part of my life. I have gone from a size 18 down to a size 12.
“Thanks to Jill and Oxycise!”
Lynnda was later featured in the First for Women magazine:
Lynnda had banned full-length mirrors from her home, so the sight of her body in a photo was a shock. “I didn’t even recognize myself,” Lynnda recalls. “I thought, There’s no way I’m that fat, but pictures don’t lie. I knew then that I had to change.”
So she bought an Oxycise video. “My first impression was that it could never work. The people in the video weren’t even sweating.” But she fave the program a try and felt a difference immediately. “I realized how shallow of a breather I was.”
Lynnda Oxycised six days a week, and in five months she lost 68 pounds, 31 inches, and three pant sizes! “I have tons of energy now,” she says. “I even sleep better!”
I feel happier and healthier than I have been in years!
“The reason that I love Oxycise! so much is that over 13 years ago I was in a car accident that left me with trauma to my muscles, tendons, ligaments, whip lash and a ruptured disk in my lower back. I was in pain and agony all of the time.
“I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. The doctor said that I had to do aerobics every day but I wasn’t allowed to do sit-ups, so I tried just about everything that was out there. I own over 26 workout tapes that left me exhausted and still maintaining the weight of 163 lbs.
“I always thought that aerobics meant running, jogging and jarring but after doing Oxycise! I realized I don’t have to do any of that and I love how it makes me feel. I immediately slept better and my energy skyrocketed. The biggest part of my pain has subsided. I have lost and am maintaining a 40 lb weight loss. I went from a size 13 to a comfortable size 7. The benefits are endless.
“Oxycise! gives me everything that I need in a workout, all in 15 minutes a day. There is no more jarring on my bones, joints and back. I get a complete aerobic workout with a full body stretch, muscle toning and complete ab workout. No more sit-ups to irritate my lower back and neck.
“I am now 42 years old with a family and I feel happier and healthier than I have been in years! No other program has worked for me the way Oxycise! has and that is why I love it so much and do it every day. I look forward to doing Oxycise!”
I’m an Oxycise convert for life!
The results I’ve had so far are wonderful and I’m an Oxycise convert for life! I’ve lost 22 pounds since 1st January this year, lots of inches all over and I have really increased my energy levels. My lung capacity has also increased as the other day I walked up this very, very steep hill and was barely out of breath. When I first began the breathing in January I could only do a couple at a time and would have to stop to catch my breath before continuing. Now, I do the entire routine without stopping once. I feel happier, more motivated and my thinking is clearer. I’m also wearing smaller size clothes which is so great!
I feel much better at 42 than I did at 32.
“Hello all my name is Margie Schulz and I would like to share my story with you. If it will help one person make the decision to do Oxycise! it will be worth the effort!!!
“I purchased the Oxycise! Program and it collected dust for quite a while. I would pull out the books and then they quickly got put away in a safe place. It was not until I read ALL of the ‘Success Stories’ on this web site that I really got the inspiration to get busy. I am a life time member of Weight Watchers, I have lost 45 lbs, but still needed to lose about 15 more and tone up my body so I made up my mind to do the Oxycise! Program for REAL. I was able to lose 6 lbs during the Holidays and my clothes were getting looser!!!
“I feel much better at 42 than I did at 32. I have more energy, my immune system is stronger and the best part is I was wearing a size 20, now I am in a size 12. I still would like to drop a few more lbs and keep the toning process going. I am dedicated to doing my O!, at least 5 days a week and I know that if I fall behind it is something I can just get right back to. AND there have been weeks and months that I have been MIA. Nothing is easy and you have to make a lifetime commitment and you can succeed. Also, the daily threads [see OxyChat Message Room] are the BEST way to get support and the needed kick in the pants…”
I lost 41 pounds
Lori gained 50 pounds during a difficult pregnancy and went from 140 to 190 lbs. Three months after her baby’s birth she still weighed 190 lbs. She began using Oxycise! and has taken off 41 pounds.
I asked Lori to send an email listing any other benefits she has noticed…
“Increased energy, less mood swings and moodiness, much more patient with kids and husband,” increased self esteem and image, much better flexibility, better performance in other forms of exercise (I do jazzercize now too), easy to do at home with/without kids, doesn’t cost anything, and eases PMS symptoms. Whew!! I didn’t realize how long the list would be!”
This is something I can do FOREVER!
“I think I have a unique story which involves Oxycise! & my ability to MAINTAIN my shape & health.
“I am 66 yrs young, 5′ 6½”, approx.136 lbs & I can NOW manage to stay a size 8 & totally pain free after many years of severe back pain. My body fat is 15% which is WAY below the average for this age.
“I have been doing Oxycise! now for about 1 yr. & after having a top weight of 235 lbs in my youth, I’ve been fighting all my life to keep it off.
“Before discovering Oxycise!, I found STAYING at a size or weight at this time in my life much more difficult from all the years of drastic diets, fasting, diet doctors with pills, injections — you name it!!!
“Now, I eat whatever I want but in moderation, of course, and as long as I Oxycise! I can stay & look the same. No doubt ‘O!’ has become a routine part of my life also because of the flexibility, strength and energy that I have at this old age. I really do not feel as well, in every way, on days when I unavoidably miss my ‘O!’ workout.
“NOBODY believes my age because I do not have that ‘mature’ body so I can’t get my Sr. discounts anywhere unless I show I.D. !!!!!
“I love the way I look & feel and only wish that the others out there from my generation would realize there IS something you can do to increase your quality of life—- it’s never too late!!
“I truly believe that the many people of my generation really NEED the Oxycise! system because its easy for them to do if they happen to be physically challenged.”

Update from Jane:
“Well, just an update—–been doing the ‘buns& thighs’ workout & can’t believe the definition, tone & shape.!!! Being in Vegas, people (women!) stop me on the street & ask if I’m a dancer! At this age? (but they don’t know that)
“I LOVE THIS WHOLE PROGRAM !!!!!!! This is something I can do FOREVER! Feel better now than in my 30’s—honest!
“Feel TERRIFIC!!!! NO medications, Rx or over-the-counter (just vitamin supplements)!!!!
“TOTALLY PAIN-FREE!!!!! (& I’ve got a bad back) or DID have. Jump outta bed like a 30yr old (in fact, I don’t think I even did it at 30!)
“Oxycise! helps me to center myself, de-stresses me emotionally & also, just as important, it feeds my soul! Thank you, Jill & God bless you for giving us your program.
“Does this get any better? don’t think so at 67yrs. I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!!!!!!!”
Keeping the Momentum Going
“Dear Oxycise, I have enthusiastically used your products for decades. Last week I measured my fat %, and the result was 18% body fat. Not bad for someone who is heading into her 60s in the next couple of years.
“I combine Oxycise with other forms of exercise, especially walking and biking. One aspect of Oxycise that is seldom promoted is that each exercise video is delivered with a card that outlines the exercise routine. When I am on vacation, I pack those cards. I can’t take my bike with me on vacations. Sometimes I get vigorous walks in. Sometimes the walks don’t work out. But, I can always do Oxycise while my husband takes his shower.
“This effort to keep doing the Oxycise, even on vacation, means that I don’t have to pick up my bike workouts from a dead start. If you have ever experienced the dreaded dead start, you know what I mean. I guess you would have to say that I have a love / hate relationship with the biking because of the sore muscles and fatigue I experience. Oxycise gets me past that first hesitation after a break.”
If I feel this good at 75 then anyone can do it and succeed
“I’m totally blown away. It’s been just under 2 weeks that I’ve been doing the Oxycise! program, and already 4 pounds and 2 inches around my belly are gone! My whole goal was to fit comfortably in my jeans, and already there is such a difference! 3 years ago I managed to lose close to 30 pounds just by changing some eating habits, but I also lost a lot of muscle as well. I got all excited and bought a bunch of 32 jeans since the 33’s I had were falling off.
“Well, it didn’t take long for those pounds to come back with a vengeance. I was so incredibly disheartened, which is how I’ve been for the past 2 years…beating myself up for gaining the weight back. I’m a pretty sedentary person, spending most of my time sitting behind a computer screen, so I knew I’d never stick with a rigorous exercise program, but the Oxycise! system appealed to me, so finally after tossing it around for about 4 months, I ordered the system for my wife and I.
“Which brings me to my 2 inches lost. But it’s not just that! I actually have biceps again! AND, there is abdominal definition where there has NEVER been before. I’m totally sold on the system. While I stumbled around for the first 2 days trying to get all the moves coordinated, by the 3rd day, I had it down and it’s just great! I find my lung capacity and endurance during physical activity has increased dramatically. I can’t imagine how things will be in 2 MORE weeks! I’ll definitely be referring all the ‘tough cases’ in my life to Oxycise! I wouldn’t call it a walk in the park – it’s real work! But it sure beats anything else I’ve ever tried! I don’t have to leave home, I can do it anywhere, anytime, and I do feel really good afterward!
“…Thanks for a stellar program! So happy I stumbled onto it!”
Update from Bob:
“Thanks for doing the exercises every day with me. I do them on the video with you and it has turned out to be the best thing I have done for myself.
“I started the Oxycise! program I think about last January 2004. I really didn’t think it would work, I thought I was too old. Age was my problem. I was tired and run down and felt just plain lousy. I was about 50 pounds overweight and was wearing a tight 44 pants. …I saw an add for the Oxycise! program and decided it was time to stop and try and do something. I thought I was too old to do the weight thing.
“Much to my surprise I started and I felt a lot better after the first week. My breathing was good and my energy level was on the rise. In fact I fired the lawn man and am now doing all of the yard work and singing again in Church, and the breath is good. I have so many rewards for doing your program I can’t believe them all. I am contemplating going for the next level as I feel so good on this one and am able to do them at the right speeds with you on the video. Well I have lost 50+ pounds and have lost 6 sizes and have the energy of being about 20 years younger. Thanks again for the program and believe me, if I feel this good at 75 then anyone can do it and succeed. May God bless you and yours and may America join in to fitness.”
When I told her I hadn’t as much as lifted a weight in a month, she almost fell over
“I have been doing Oxycise for about 2 ½ weeks now. Being a Personal Trainer, Assistant Manager, and the club Aerobics Coordinator, I stay in pretty good shape. But I quit doing all forms of cardio and weight training… I wanted to see just how good it worked, so I became my own experiment…
“After doing it for just 2 ½ weeks, I went from 111 lbs to 109, from 25″ to 24″ waist, from 35″ hips to 34 ½”, and from a 21″ thigh to 20 ½”. But even better than all this was having members and one of my fellow trainers notice the difference. She walked by and squeezed my arm and did a double take because of the way it felt. She said, ‘What have you been doing? Your arms feel great.’ When I told her I hadn’t as much as lifted a weight in a month, she almost fell over. It’s been little comments like this that have encouraged me and proven that others notice too!
“It has also helped me with my hypoglycemia and my energy level. I was diagnosed about 2 months ago and I get terrible shakes and fatigue if I don’t eat every 2 hours. I no longer get the shakes every 2 hours. I find that I can go longer before my symptoms begin to surface. This has made a world of difference at my job because I stay so busy.
“I’m so excited about this program and just can’t wait to share it now that I know FIRST HAND how great it works!”
I lost 41 pounds
Lori gained 50 pounds during a difficult pregnancy and went from 140 to 190 lbs. Three months after her baby’s birth she still weighed 190 lbs. She began using Oxycise! and has taken off 41 pounds.
I asked Lori to send an email listing any other benefits she has noticed…
“Increased energy, less mood swings and moodiness, much more patient with kids and husband, increased self esteem and image, much better flexibility, better performance in other forms of exercise (I do jazzercize now too), easy to do at home with/without kids, doesn’t cost anything, and eases PMS symptoms. Whew!! I didn’t realize how long the list would be!”
Lost the last stubborn weight
“I used Body Flex for about one year and lost 12 pounds and three inches off my waist. No matter how diligent I was I couldn’t lose any more inches in my lower abs. I started Oxycise! about three weeks ago and lost the last stubborn weight and inches I wanted to lose. I feel energized and really toned. Thank you so much for a great system!”
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 basement is an exercise machine cemetery!
“I wasn’t overweight before I started Oxycising. Still, gravity does take its toll! Even with my years of exercising, I’ve noticed diminishing muscle tone. I’m so pleased with the results I get from Oxycising! I do it every day.
“I’m 46 and have been doing a daily aerobics routine for the past 18 years–running, walking, step-aerobics, NordicTrack, Health Rider, aerobic dance, whatever. (My basement is an exercise machine cemetery!) In February of this year I read about Oxycise! in Woman’s World and decided to give it a try. My energy level was so low; I thought Oxycise! might give me a little more pep. I really didn’t expect to lose much in the way of inches. I started feeling more energetic almost immediately.
“I continued with level one for a couple of weeks, and then decided to buy tapes 2 and 3. After doing tape 2 for a week or two, I noticed a definite change in the way my body looked and felt. Dramatic? Maybe not, but I’m very pleased with the results. I’ve been using tape 3 for the past few weeks, and have noticed that my body is becoming even more toned. Now I have all of the tapes plus the commuter tape, which I started using yesterday. It’s a great energizer. I haven’t used my latest exercise machine since February, although I’ve been careful to dust it once a week.
“Another added benefit: I’m sleeping better! Exercising in the morning has never worked for me, so I do my routine a couple of hours after dinner. The leaping/running/ pedaling/stepping regimen gave me a ‘second wind’ I didn’t really want. I’d go to bed every night feeling a little ‘wired.’ Oxycise!, while invigorating, doesn’t put me in overdrive. It actually has a bit of a calming effect–although that may sound like a paradox.”
I haven’t worn a size 8 since before I was married!
“A few years ago, I tried a different breathing/exercise video program, with little success. About two months ago, I pulled my videos out again in hopes that perhaps ‘this time’ things would be different. Maybe I needed to do something differently to get different results. I decided to surf the Internet to learn more about how oxygen affects weight loss. That’s when I came across your website!
“After spending about 2-1/2 hours at your website, learning about how Oxycise! works, reading some of the testimonials, reading Jill’s story and seeing Jill’s before and after photos (I want to look like that!), the seed was planted to try Oxycise!
“The next day, I wrote an e-mail message to Oxycise! to ask more about the program and was pleasantly surprised to see a response within less than 24 hours from Nancy and Julie–“real people” who sounded very down-to-earth! I think that’s what finally sold me on ordering the Oxycise! program–the great service and the caring responses I received.
“I ordered the Oxycise! Level One and Level Two videos, the audio tape and the Oxycise! book near the end of May. They were in my mailbox by May 31st and I started the program on June 1st. (Ironically, it was June 1st, 1983, when I met my husband for the first time! I was a size 5-7 then and very happy with my weight and appearance.)
“I usually do either Oxycise! video at least once a day, sometimes both, and at least six days a week, alternating each video for variety. (I haven’t used the other program since starting Oxycise!) When I’m driving in the car 15 minutes or more, I do the Oxycise! audio tape. When I started the Oxycise! program, I marked my measurements in red marker on one of the measuring tapes provided so I could clearly see my progress.
“As of July 1st, (one month later), I had lost over 5 inches in total (I have been measuring myself in six areas), with the majority in my waist and my arms. It’s wonderful to see the new marker line moving away from the old measurement–in the right direction! My hips and thighs have been more stubborn with very minimal inch loss. However, my cellulite in these two areas has noticeably improved. My legs look more toned and they are starting to show better definition–I’m on my way, anyway.
“I have not lost any weight yet, in fact I have gained two pounds, but I recognize that I have been eating more calories than usual and, as confirmed by Julie at Oxycise!, muscle weighs more than fat. My abdomen, especially my waist, is much more toned and looks flatter than it has in some time–my husband has also commented that he’s noticed a difference.
“The best part is that I went to the store to buy a pair of shorts and I have lost one size! I even tried on a different pair of shorts in size 10 to make sure it wasn’t just a different fit. I can’t tell you how thrilled I was! I have been wearing a size 12 for the last two years and this is the first time I was able to wear a size 10 in probably ten years! (The clothes that I am wearing now are probably going to soon need to be taken in or replaced. Darn, I hate to shop–just kidding!!)
“When I came back to work from the store, beaming after buying my new shorts, I told some of my co-workers and they wanted to know what I was doing! I explained the Oxycise! program and demonstrated the Basic Breath. I told them how easy it is and how little time it takes to do each day. They were asking how to visit your website. One of my co-workers explained the concept to her aerobics instructor who believes it makes sense as she uses deep breathing for healing.
“Another benefit has been the increased energy level. When I feel really tired at the end of the day, I do one of the Oxycise! videos and feel energized and ready to go again!
“Over the years I have tried many other programs with very little long-term success, some with no success–if I lost weight, it came back with a few extra pounds. In fact, when I told one of my sisters that I was starting Oxycise! she said, ‘It’s just another flavour of the month. You’ve tried the Jane Fonda workout, aerobics, the stepper, Body Flex, etc., and now this. Well, let me know if it works.’ Well, IT DOES! I am amazed at how simple it really is and how little effort and time it takes. It’s hard to believe something this easy works! This is something I KNOW I can stick with!
“I only did the other breathing program when no one was around because of the strange breathing technique and facial expressions needed to do it as it is taught–I found it was just too embarrassing to do in front of or within earshot of others. With Oxycise! I don’t feel embarrassed or self-conscious, I ‘just do it!’ Jill is down to earth and explains everything so well and the other participants on the videos are easy to relate to.
“One of the things I have found that keeps me so motivated is to read the testimonials on your website. Everyone’s success level is different but encouraging. I have spent more time at your website visiting each section, enjoying all I have read. Your website is wonderful and very well organized! I also enjoy receiving your OxyChat! newsletter. It’s nice to keep in touch with you! It’s also neat to read the e-mails sent in to the OxyCenter with questions/answers, and words of encouragement.
“It’s exciting to be doing something that offers so much hope to shed these unwanted pounds I have carried around for years. I want to feel really good again about how I look and enjoy shopping again for new clothes and not feel embarrassed to try on or wear a bathing suit. I know in another month that I will have lost more inches and hopefully some weight, and if not, then I know it WILL happen in time! I want to look the way I did when I first met my husband, and I believe I will. Regardless, I feel more energized and encouraged than I have in years!
“Thank you, Jill, for making your program available to the public. I will continue to tell others about Oxycise! and look forward to more successes. Meantime, I will continue to ‘keep on breathin’!’
Susan’s Update from the Message Board (Including Congratulations and Comments from Jill)
“This is THE BEST program!!!!”
“Well, Oxycise! has done it again for me!!! Today, I went to the store to buy myself some new jeans since all my other jeans are too big now, and lo and behold, I’ve dropped another size. I actually got to buy a Size 8 pair of jeans–I haven’t worn a size 8 since before I was married! That’s two sizes I’ve lost in just 2-1/2 months! I swear I was almost touching the ceiling when I left the store!
THANK YOU, JILL!!!!!!! YOU’RE AWESOME!!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
Comments From Jill Johnson
Isn’t it fun??? I remember the first time I fit in a size 12. I tried on several 14’s and they were too big, so I started looking at the size 12 rack.
I kept thinking the the sales clerks were staring at me thinking, “What is that fat girl think she’s doing trying to fit in a size 12.”
I took 2 or 3 pairs of jeans into the dressing room, and they fit! I didn’t trust the size yet, so I literally tried on 25 pairs of jeans in size 12 before I admitted to myself that I was actually that size. It was amazing to me.
Keep on breathin’
Subject: Thank you, Jill!
“Yes, it was amazing to me, too (and fun!) I had to tell the clerk why I was so excited about trying on jeans!!! I told her all about Oxycise! and what a FANTASTIC program it is! I tried on a couple of size 10s before I realized it wasn’t the make, it was ME! I had SHRUNK!!! I couldn’t believe I was actually going back to the racks for the smallest size they sold! I still have more inches to lose and toning to do, but I’m still on a cloud thinking about it!
“If I can do this program, ANYONE CAN!!!
“Thank you again, Jill!!! (Can’t thank you enough!!!)”
I knew if I didn’t do something, I would never be able to lift grandchildren up into my arms
“I learned of Oxycise one night last summer when I was unable to sleep and was watching infomercials. I have tried many programs, diets, and exercises and have remained overweight most of my life. This sounded painless, low key and the people who had found success with it seemed so sincere.
“I thought ‘why not’, I already had wasted a small fortune on videos and programs, and I had enough deserted equipment to open a gym- what’s one more. But yet in my heart I really wanted this one to work.
“I was not as concerned about my size as I was concerned about my health. I am only 42, yet I had noticed more and more that it was difficult to fill my lungs with air. My heart also seemed overstressed. I had difficulty walking the two flights of stairs in our school, and I often felt sluggish and lethargic. I had lower back pain so severe that I often had to hang on to the headboard to roll over in bed. I knew if I didn’t do something, I would never be able to lift grandchildren up into my arms.
“I started Oxycise! in September. I did the level one workout every morning-five days a week. At first I didn’t really notice anything other than the fact that I had more energy and was less lethargic, which is really important as I teach first graders. For this reason alone I continued to do it. Soon I started to notice other benefits. My results are not as drastic as some, but they were fun to see. People started to ask me if I was losing weight. I no longer needed a nightly nap before I tackled my school papers. I was able to buy jeans in a smaller size. My back didn’t hurt. I no longer had chest pains and I felt like my lungs were getting the air they needed. I am a song leader in my church and my breath support and control was improved. I had the agility to do several things I had not been able to do for a while. Soon people really began to notice and wondered what my secret was. Now several colleagues at school have ordered Oxycise! All this, and I have not changed my eating habits at all. I have a real sweet tooth and I indulge it every day. I eat sensibly, but I don’t deny myself. I know my results would be greater if I did change my eating habits, but I have to do something that I will be able to live with for the rest of my life. If my progress is slower because I still have fudge, then so be it! I do not feel one bit deprived. I feel elated and exhilarated!! I know I will continue Oxycise! the rest of my life!
“Here are my official results in 7 months of Oxycising 5 times a week
Weight Lost 20 lbs
Inches lost 17 inches
Pant size from a 24 to almost an 18
Dress size from a 22 to a 16
“Again, while these results are fun to see and it is fun to get compliments, for me, the real benefit has been how much better and healthier I feel.”
One of the greatest benefits I’ve experienced is the increase in energy
“Monday is measuring day for me and I thought I would share that in two months I’ve lost a total of 18-1/4 inches and maybe 6 pounds (don’t know how accurate the scale is).
“I have a long way to go, but I’ve never had such great results so quickly and one of the greatest benefits I’ve experienced is the increase in energy, with three children. I know have the energy to keep up with them and I’m actually finding myself wanting to go out and play catch, jump on the trampoline and just play.”
I would have guessed that it would have taken more than 15 min of breathing to get such results.
“Hi Everyone, I have been doing Oxycise every day now for two weeks and didn’t have a change in measurements yet; but, I went to work today and saw someone whom I haven’t seen for two weeks and she wanted to know what I have been doing–that I looked slimmer in my face and tighter somehow. What a great surprise. I love the way O! makes me feel and sometimes fit it in twice a day. I couldn’t believe what an effect it had on my muscles. I had been doing kick-boxing every other day and aerobics and yoga on the alternate days everyday (but 8) since the beginning of May. So when I starting Oxycising, I was shocked that my muscles felt a bit sore the next day. I would have guessed that it would have taken more than 15 min of breathing to get such results.”
Update from Chris:
“This past May I started an intensive exercise program with kickboxing/weights/yoga (60min) and alternating with aerobics/yoga(45-60 min) alternate days. From May until now I have only missed eight days. During that time I tightened up and felt more conditioned and limber, but no changes in inches lost. Then six weeks ago I started Oxycise! I love this program and combined it with my other routine because I like the routine that I got in to. I Oxycise! at least once a day and on many days do Levels I and II and also in my car when I am driving. What a surprise when I measured this morning. I still weigh 145, but am so much tighter and toned and my face is firmer. I lost 1/2″ from my back (as measured under my bust); 1/2″ from my waist; 1/2″ from below my navel; 1/2″ from my hips; and 1/2″ from my thighs. I am absolutely amazed at these results. I find the breathing easy and enjoyable and am energized by this. Thank Jill for this wonderful program.”
I have been taking the ‘magic pills’ for years to lose weight and nothing ever worked. This works.
“I have been doing Oxycise! for about a month and have seen major changes in me:
1. Better complexion and strong nails and hair.
2. I have energy.
3. I am not depressed and have a lot more happy thoughts.
4. My fat is not jiggling as much.
5. I can fit into jeans that are straight out of the dryer and not have to
lay on the floor to zip them up.
6. I bought and fit into a smaller size skirt.
7. I feel my muscles and see them.
8. I have very little or no cramps or bloating when I get my period (ever
since I was 9 yrs old I have had extremely bad periods).
I sometimes still have to get myself motivated to do my O!ing but once I start I am happy and very proud of myself. I have been taking the ‘magic pills’ for years to lose weight and nothing ever worked. This works.”
I’ve gone from a Size 16 jeans back into all those Size 12’s I saved
“Just wanted to let you know my Oxy-results at this point. I’ve been doing Oxycise! for about three months now and I’ve gone from a Size 16 jeans back into all those Size 12’s I saved. My 10’s are still waiting, but hopefully not for too long. I’ve been combining Oxycise! with the ‘Fit for Life’ way of eating (which is pretty close to Jill’s ‘Fuel for Success’), and not only am losing weight (20 pounds), and inches, I have much more energy and feel much better. Also am not getting sick NEARLY as much. I really am enjoying Oxycise!…thanks so much for sharing it with us all!
“Also wanted to say I love Jill’s ‘new look’ (on Level 3, Buns & Thighs, etc.)… Thanks also for the newsletter . . . it helps keep me on the course, and the suggestions and tips really help.”
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.”
Feeling more energized, sleeping like a baby, my arms are getting toned…
“I’m pretty sure I’m seeing and feeling results from Oxycise! I feel a whole lot better (must be from the endorphins), feeling more energized, sleeping like a baby, no more bad dreams, my arms are getting toned (dumb-bells weren’t doing it), my legs are looking shapelier and feeling a lot harder and stronger, my chest and shoulders are shaping up and my butt is getting hard as a rock. I’ve had back pain for the past 6-8 months and now it’s totally gone away. I think my nails are growing too. My stomach/waist still needs a lot of work though but I’m really contracting my abs good during the workout so something positive must be going on underneath all the fat. I still need to work on my eating habits. This is all from just a week and a half of Oxycising. If I see even better results in another week than I’ve already had, I’m definitely throwing out all of my old aerobic tapes. Thank you so much Jill!!!!”
I decided to put O! to the test…
“Hi! I have known about Oxycise! for about 2 years and have done it off and on (okay mostly off). I have posted on this board before, but mostly lurked, but right now I am so excited I had to share! We just went on a 2 week, 6000 mile trip and when we travel (more than a half hour) I can’t usually stay awake and I miss all the beautiful scenery, so I decided to put O! to the test!!! I did 2 Basic Breaths every half hour. It did amazing things. (1) It kept me awake; (2) It controlled my snacking; (3) I had taken a pair of shorts along that I could not fasten and after 6 days I could and did wear them (it did help that no one knew me, LOL); (4) I had so much energy my family couldn’t keep up; (5) I have lost 3 pounds since we left; (6) I didn’t snore in the hotel rooms!! (7) My legs didn’t ache from being cramped in the car for 8 hours a day!! All in all it was truly amazing!!!”
I have lost 16-18″ from my body and it feels great
“Hi Jill and gang:
“I was just going over my measurements this AM, and went back to the records I kept when I started doing Oxycise in November.
“I bought Jill’s book and commuter routine from the Shopping Channel in Canada and at first only did the breathing. I finally got brave in January and have been making progress since then. I now have Levels 2, 3 and Abs and Thighs. I have a routine which incorporates all my videos.
“I realized this morning that I have finally lost that 10 lbs I have been working on since Nov. I had some of it off but O! showed me that oxygen was a great friend and that smoking was robbing me from oxygen. I gained back about 5 lbs when I quit smoking.
“It wasn’t the weight that really caught my attention today but my measurements. I have lost:
3″ from my waist,
3″ from my hips
3″ from my chest
1 1/2″ from each arm
1” from each thigh and
1″+ from each calf (my calves have affectionately been called cows so I’ll take all the help I can get).
“So I have lost 16-18” from my body and it feels great. Thank You! Thank you! I love to O! when I first get up in the morning. It wakes me up better than coffee and gives me the edge to keep on going all day. I also use O! when I go for my walk at lunch. It really works well on those abs.
“I don’t plan to stop O!ing any time soon. It just makes me feel so good. I know that my body is still a work in progress, because it hasn’t stop changing yet.
“I just had to let you know that I am another happy customer.”
I’m grateful that at last there is a simple and very doable and effective way of getting in shape and staying that way
“I ordered the Introductory Set two years ago and have been enjoying the information online. Something clicked a few weeks ago, and I started actually doing Oxycise! regularly. Suddenly, I got the hang of the breathing (especially ‘the lift’) and didn’t consider the positions too challenging. I thank God for this miracle! And I’m grateful that at last there is a simple and very doable and effective way of getting in shape and staying that way.
“I have gone from a size 14 to a size 12. I see muscle tone and definition now and have energy enough to sail through the day (even running up a long flight of stairs at the end of my work shift!).
“The heel spurs that had me walking like a crippled person in the past months hardly have any effect on me now. I can even put aside my orthotics and go barefoot for a little while.
“My goal is get down to a size 8, where I was in my early twenties, and to stay energetic. My hope is that my husband will decide to try it some day soon!”
I don’t look like I am constantly pregnant anymore
“… I have experienced the most remarkable pain relief from doing Oxycise! I purchased my computer back in April 1996. I immediately began experiencing tremendous pain in my right shoulder. Massage never helped at all. The pain persisted. Then last year my right mouse clicking finger began to hurt. The pain got so bad that I was trying to figure out a way to become left handed!!
“Well, of course I began using Oxycise! for weight loss. Yet, the most amazing thing happened without me even realizing it! The pain in my right ‘clicker’ finger was gone! along with the pain in my shoulder. I know it’s the Oxycise!, because if I don’t do my exercises the pain comes right back.
“I have also lost 5 inches on my stomach – really wonderful and amazing! I don’t look like I am constantly pregnant anymore. I also see some lovely results in my face and over my body. I have been a slow loser, however, I did not realize how deprived my body was of oxygen until I started Oxycise! I was barely even breathing before, it’s a wonder I was even alive!
“I love that I can do Oxycise! anywhere at anytime, even taking a few sniffs and puffs anywhere and everywhere! We are getting ready to move and I was doing my Oxycise breath while I was packing, so even though I may not get through a whole 15 minute routine, I still try to get in my 15 minutes of breathing to keep my tummy tight and trim.
“And I finally began breathing while driving. I have been challenging myself to breathe through a whole song or red light. I now have to commute between our two homes every week and it’s a 164 mile drive one way. God Bless Oxycise!
“I have lots and lots more energy now and I love the way my face tingles and some body parts when they are flooded with Oxygen! Thank you for listening.”
I actually have rediscovered my jawbone and shoulder blades again!!!
“I would like to share my Oxycise! results with you. I have struggled with weight for several years and gained about 50 additional pounds with my pregnancy 3 years ago.
“In the middle of February, I started Oxycise! and had a starting weight of 260 (a size 24) I should also mention that I am 6′ tall so I always told myself, ‘I’m tall, so weighing in at 260 is not that overweight for my frame’, which was a huge misconception on my part.
“Well I am happy to say that in 12 weeks I have lost 48 inches (I measure in 8 different places), have gone down from a size 24 to almost a size 20, and have lost roughly 20 pounds. I am looking to drop two more pant sizes to ultimately fit into a size 16 by Christmas. I actually have rediscovered my jawbone and shoulder blades again!!!
“Family members have definitely noticed the change in my appearance and overall personality!! (I hope this doesn’t sound vain, but I wish my co-workers would comment more, some days I wonder if you can truly notice??)
“Oxycise! has definitely been a blessing for me, I actually have the energy to work full-time, play with my daughter and spend much more quality time with my family!!
“Words cannot describe how thankful I am to the Jill for creating this wonderful way of maintaining a healthier lifestyle. Also, I love the weekly newsletter as it always really motivates me!!
PS: “One more little tidbit, I usually measure on Mondays, but I measured today and in the past 5 days lost another 6 inches to make my total 54 inches. I measured about 3 times to make sure I was in exactly the same spot as the week before and sure enough. Needless to say, I am stunned with these results. I have recently added more ‘Rip the Floor’ and ‘Torpedo One’ reps and I think this has really helped.”
I suddenly lost about 12 inches and was just blown away…so exciting
“I have been Oxycising! for 3 weeks now. The first week, I actually gained several inches. (So discouraging.) Then, the second week, I suddenly lost about 12 inches and was just blown away…so exciting. This week, I lost another 5 inches, which puts me about 9 inches below where I started. This is good. I have been keeping up with my body fat percentages since the end of January and so far it has gone from about 42% to 36% as of today. Pretty impressive.”
Lisa mentions these additional results:
1. I have to walk to 4 flights of stairs to get to my office (we’re on the 3rd floor.). I used to have to stop half-way up and rest, but now I don’t. I’m still slow, don’t get me wrong, but my recovery time is much, much quicker already.
2. My skin has begun to clear up and looks “fresher”.
3. My breath support when I sing has improved and I can hit notes now that I haven’t been able to in years!
4. I can actually feel that I am forming real abdominal muscles under my fat (I have quite a bit to lose).
5. I use a treadmill at the gym that my family and I are members of and I have had to increase the intensity to get a good workout because the lower program wasn’t challenging enough any more. (P.S. my mother-in-law bought my family a membership to a gym for Christmas and it was really expensive. Telling her I’m not going to the gym because I am only Oxycising would be familial suicide. So, I enjoy the treadmill while my family does other activities.)
6. I have noticed an increase in my libido (much to my husband’s delight.!)
7. I have some mild insomnia, but I’ve noticed that even if I don’t get enough rest, using a couple of “Oxybreaths” (is this a word?) or doing the commuter tape really helps me make it through the day.
My body refused to budge any more no matter how hard I tried
“My name is Rhonda Williams, I’m 34 years old and have been doing Oxycise! for approximately one and a half years. I’ve lost 20 pounds with not much change in my eating habits. I’ve eaten healthy for a long time since losing 50 pounds 9 years ago but had gotten down to a comfortable weight and my body refused to budge any more no matter how hard I tried. Since doing Oxycise!, I’ve managed to drop another 20 pounds slowly but surely. It’s well worth the 15 minutes a day to have the reassurance that the weight will stay off. I just found out I’m 6 weeks pregnant and will continue to do Oxycise! throughout my pregnancy for the added energy and so I won’t gain any more than I need to for the baby. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell my story.”
“My original weight, way back when, was 200 lbs. Dropped to 155 lbs…with diet and exercise. Vigorous exercise!!!! and more vigorous exercise to keep it off until Oxycise! Now I’m at 132-137 depending on the time of the month. My only exercise for the last 1-1/2 years is walking the dog and Oxycise! and Voila! no more worry…”
We feel better, we’re more energized
“Good morning! We live in a low-income senior complex in Stanwood, WA, and exercise to your Easy Does It Level One video. This has helped us not only to lose some weight, but more importantly, to breathe properly. We feel better, we’re more energized, and we’re getting more people to come out of their apartments – a big plus for us seniors!”
Thank you for a new lease on life at this age!
“I am 83 years old and was turned down at Curves so have been doing your Oxycises for 6 weeks and notice a feeling of well- being, more energy, never have trouble sleeping anymore and my clothes feel looser. I look forward to every day immediately after breakfast doing my exercises.
“I would like to say that we musn’t be impatient. It is the steady routine of at least 5 days a week ( I prefer 6 or 7 ) that produces results. Thank you for a new lease on life at this age!”
I look trimmer, my jeans are a little looser, and I feel more energetic!
I have had the ‘Easy Does It‘ starter set for about a month and recently received the Levels 2 and 3 tapes to provide me with a little variety.
I weigh 140 lbs. and am 5’6″ tall with very good carriage. I’m not looking to lose much, because I think at age 82, I am at my best fighting weight. Have never thought scrawny old ladies were particularly attractive.
My arthritic knees decided about 6 years ago that I should stop my Jazzercise classes. If I hadn’t had my yoga (been doing it for over 45 years and still attend two classes a week) to fall back on, I may have really gone to pot (small play on words there!). I’ve always used deep yoga breathing to get that oxygen in and to help me sleep, but it’s not as energetic as your method.
Having said that, may I now say that after doing Oxycise! for a few weeks, I am beginning to notice a definite tightening of the areas that needed it. No, I’m sorry, I haven’t been measuring, but I look trimmer, my jeans are a little looser, and I do feel more energetic!
For some of the stretching positions, I have been substituting yoga postures that I feel best utilize the areas of my body that I want to tone. And I love the commuter routine! I visit a shut-in friend about once a week, and she lives 20 minutes away, so I get two of its workouts on those days!!….
You’re more than welcome to use my email if you’d like. I’m hoping in the next several months to have more exciting news to share. Fortunately I have a healthy heart and my blood pressure is fine. It’s just my knees ….. after all that jitter-bugging I did!!
I’m not a small woman (a comfortable size 14), and have never had a protruding tummy. I’m well proportioned, have excellent posture, but have noticed recently that I was getting a little thicker around the middle. I’m certain that Oxycise! is going to take care of that!
BTW about 7 or 8 months ago I was introduced to a bit of incontinence. For some reason, I also had a little difficulty in remembering to do my Kegel exercises daily. Now I simply incorporate them in the ‘lift and tuck’ and Bingo! …. better bladder control!
In these three ‘Easy Does It’ tapes, after I learned the routine, instead of just waiting to start, while Jill explains the position, I go ahead and sneak in a couple of extra breaths. I’m sure I do at least 40 reps per tape! And it’s so easy to do just the diaphragmatic breathing at any time or any place!”
Happy breathing to us all,
This is and will continue to be a great program for us, pushing back the clock for us.
“Just wanted to let you know that we are still breathing, and very gratified at the two month results we have achieved.
“We got the ‘Spring Special’, and have started Level 2 exercises. My husband, Roger, only does a few of them, or substitutes Level 1 exercises, or just breathes, because of his osteoporosis of the spine. At any rate, he continues to derive benefit.
“I find I have dropped 2 pounds this past month, even though I am within normal weight guidelines. The weight loss has come out of my legs and abdomen. What I really find great, is the increased flexibility in my legs and hips. A slight pain in my left hip when bending, has left since starting Level 2 exercises.
“I am pushing age 71 hard, and Roger is 82. This is and will continue to be a great program for us, pushing back the clock for us.”
Update from Roger and Bea:
“Dear Fellow Breathers,
“What a joy to hear from you. I had intended to write a couple weeks from now, March 15th to be exact, and share our first O! anniversary with you. Yes, we’re still at it and doing well. There was a period of several weeks when I was unable to exercise, and I really missed it. I noticed the pick up in energy and muscle tone again almost immediately on starting again. Also, of course, it’s so much easier to maintain a stable weight. This came in handy over the Christmas holidays. I couldn’t resist some of the special goodies.
“Roger and I intend to stay on this program as long as we are able. The benefits for both of us are enormous, and it’s so simple to do. We alternate Level One through Level Four. Levels Three and Four are especially good for my legs. Roger just breathes and does those reps he can comfortably do. Roger had another birthday since I last wrote. He’s 83.”
This is something I will be able to do for the rest of my life
“I’d be glad to share my story.. I am 67. I really wanted to do Oxycise! to strengthen my back, since I have a disk problem. I have suffered with this for years.
“I have been doing Oxy since Feb. I still have back pain but not as bad. My stomach is tighter which helps the back. I have lost at least 4 inches, and 8 pds. I don’t really need to lose that much. I feel better also. I have my sisters doing it and my Daughter-in-law.
“One of my sisters broke her leg, and she still does Oxy in the positions that she is able to.
“This is something I will be able to do for the rest of my life. I am still working as an assistant to a Speech Therapist in an elementary school. I think this will give me the energy to work a long time in the future.”
Nothing has worked for me over the long haul until Oxycise! came into my life
“I have been using the Oxycise! system for a year now. As so many have, I tried diet programs, exercise and even the dangerous Phen-Fen drug combination to lose and stabilize my weight fluctuations. I am a retired Home Economist and university professor and know all the weight-loss ‘theories’ that don’t work. I have found the Oxycise! system to be soundly based on the physiology of the body and its needs to function at an optimum level for good health. As a 69-year old woman I have seen and done it all and nothing has worked for me over the long haul until Oxycise! came into my life. It has changed the way I manage my body and my health. It has proven to be a gentle, steady and unfailing method of weight-loss combined with a feeling of well-being and energy that became its own motivation to make it a lifetime solution to my age-old problem. The weekly newsletters are an extra plus.
“Thank you, Jill, for making Oxycise! an important part of my day.”
Lost ten pounds and feeling much more energy
“I have got my grandmother, who doesn’t have much mobility right now, hooked on Oxycise! When she first awakes in the morning, she does several repetitions in bed. She does this both with her legs stretched out in front of her and with her knees bent. She finds that this also helps her to have enough energy to get out of bed. Then, later on in the day, she Oxycises once again while sitting in her chair, with different arm positions, or sometimes just breathing and sitting in an upright position. After one month, she has lost ten pounds (she is about 80 pounds overweight) and is feeling much more energy. She has found that this is the perfect exercise program for her since she is not able to walk, and finds lifting weights very difficult.”
I have never felt better or had more energy!
“Last February my daughter told me about an exercise tape she had been using since the birth of her third child. She had done a great job of losing her pregnancy weight. Since I was approaching my 60th birthday in six months I decided it was time to do something about the 20 pounds I needed to lose. By the time my birthday rolled around in August I had lost fifteen of those pounds and have kept them off…even through business trips with my husband and family vacations! Oxycise is GREAT!! I have never felt better or had more energy! Thanks, Jill, for helping me. I miss you on the days I do not do the exercises.”
“I still love doing Oxycise! daily (except Sunday)!
“I feel better and have more stamina than ever. I walk every morning with two friends, one seven years younger than I and the other 20 years younger. I have no trouble keeping up with them while we walk and talk! Thanks to Jill!”
I am 74 and look wonderful
“I am crazy about Oxycise! and have so many of my friends doing it too…
“I am already down to the size I want, feel better and a nice tight tummy and thighs and I am 74 and look wonderful, I have only been doing Oxycise! for three weeks.
“People do not believe me till they try it. I’m so grateful for Oxycise!. I have fought weight all my life, tried everything, but this is the best, easiest yet and makes you feel so energized! People think I am in my fifties. Makes you feel good!
“Thank you, thank you,”
The results I have achieved in my energy make the program well worth the money!
“I admit, I bought the Oxycise! program and let it sit on the shelf for a few months. But I finally tried it last week and I don’t know what took me so long! After a week I lost 1/2 inch in my waist, hips and each thigh. Not as great as some of the other people who have written in, but good enough for me. The real difference, though, has been in my energy level. You see, I work in a theater, and I was previously unable to get through a day without a nap. Even then, I was dragging so badly by the time I left (usually at 11:30 or 12) that I would frequently fall asleep on the subway. Now I am alert, focused, and able to make it easily through a day
“I hope that I continue to lose inches, but the results I have achieved in my energy make the program well worth the money! I thank you profoundly for this program, and give you my Best regards,”
In 1 month, my daughter has lost 9 inches and I have lost 7!!
“My 14 year old daughter and I have been doing Oxycise! now for about a month. At first I, too, was obsessed with the scale. But I know from belonging to a health club for a few months last winter that muscle weighs more than fat. I also know that teenagers are constantly growing taller and will fluctuate in weight often. So I have encouraged them to measure instead of always going by the scale.
“In 1 month, my daughter has lost 9 inches and I have lost 7!! Even though she would like to weigh less, I tell her that in time, the numbers will go down and to concentrate on her successful inch loss!
“This is a workout we can do together and it is not strenuous. I have both Level 1 and 2. I like Level 2 better for the constant work on the legs. I have toned up a lot of cellulite and my daughter’s is virtually gone! We have more energy and I feel much better and more dedicated to this than I ever was at the gym! I have now given a friend my videos to see if she likes them. I know she will. She has twin 3-year-olds to chase around and doesn’t have time to do a long workout, so this is perfect for her too.
“Thank you for this fabulous program! It will become part of my everyday routine for a lifetime!”
I had tried every fad diet and exercise gimmick
“Okay, you’re cruising the web and you ended up here. You’ve already been to every other site concerning exercise and weight loss, and your brain is a blur. You ask yourself: ‘Is this different, or is it just another marketing ploy designed to separate me from some more of my money?’
“I was right where you are two months ago. I had tried every fad diet and exercise gimmick to come down the pike and the only times I had ever actually lost weight were when I was sick. By the time I saw the infomercial on Oxycise!, I was resigned to never being anything other than what I was. (Okay–I’m not THAT bad a person, but what looked back at me from the mirror was a sack of flour tied in the middle.)
“Was I skeptical? Yes, and heartily so! In fact, except for the fact the Jill Johnson seemed like such a NICE person, I can’t imagine what it was that compelled me to order. (I generally watch infomercials to be amused. Ron Popeil never fails to make me giggle.)
“I ordered and decided to give it two months of effort. After all, what’s fifteen minutes a day? BUT–I was stubborn and skeptical, and refused to do ANYTHING else. I wasn’t going to change my eating habits, I wasn’t going to add any additional activity or take any supplement other than what I generally take. It was going to be the 15 minutes of Oxycise! working or nothing.
“The first couple of weeks I didn’t lose an inch because I wasn’t doing the breath right. I was SURE I was, but I was sneaking exhales on the three sniffs and inhales on the three puffs. I WAS getting a lot more oxygen than I was used to, though. I had swollen lymph glands in my neck from trying to get the flu, and they disappeared in the first three days. I also increased my water dramatically, to 96 oz. Previously, water was merely a vehicle for turning ground beans into coffee.
“Near the end of the second week, I found this site. It’s WONDERFUL! The people are friendly and encouraging and helpful. And Julie, the Patron Saint of Oxycisers, is always there to answer questions. She also forwarded a tip sheet on breathing that got me on the right track.
“What a difference doing the breath right made! I could FEEL it when it was right. It wasn’t so much being sore–like with other excercise–it was a good feeling.
“Okay, so what happened? It’s been two months. And really, that’s not counting the first two weeks–and not counting a four day period when I couldn’t breathe from allergies …and another four day period when I kept putting it off and never got around to it. Here goes:
“I measured my rib cage, waist, hips, upper arms and thighs. From these I have lost 16.75 inches in what amounts to six weeks of regular Oxycise! AND that is Oxycise! ALONE, once a day. The only other thing I did was add drinking water (and running to the toilet until I got used to it).
“In addition to the inch loss (I do not weigh…EVER) I have noticed a dramatic increase in energy. My concentration has improved (Oxygen is actually getting to my brain now). And I know I am increasing in muscle because the ‘Squush Potential’ is almost gone. (You know what the ‘Squush Potential’ is? You measure the right way, then measure again, squushing your innards until you almost cut off your circulation. Right before you lose consciousness, you have your ‘Squush potential.’ I used to could get a good three or four inches of potential–now I can barely squush an inch.)
“So, to anyone out there wondering ‘Does this really work?’ I can tell you this: it is sure working for me. And I am not even the model Oxyciser. As far as I am concerned, it is a miracle.”
My muscle tone is amazing – my biceps and my tummy and legs are really firm
“First I want to thank you for your wonderful Oxycise! program. I have suffered from depression, anxiety, lack of focus and irritability for over a year now. Oxycise! has helped me to have more energy, to remain much calmer when things get hectic and I am able to focus on work so much better. Instead of being irritable around my 3-1/2 year old son, I find myself spending more and more quality time with him. In general I’m happier. I actually find myself walking with a little skip now. I love all these benefits and will continue to do Oxycise everyday (I just ordered the level II)…
“…My muscle tone is amazing – my biceps and my tummy and legs are really firm…”
“…Thank you again for this wonderful program and I do look forward to new workouts you may put out in the future.”
It is a great way to spend time together before he goes to work
“I was watching TV one day and nothing good was on, of course. Well, as I was flipping through the channels I came to an infomercial (another one?!). Well, I thought, I am always up for a good laugh, so I watched. To my surprise, and delight, this actually looked interesting. I watched the whole thing, and wrote down the number, something I never do. I watched as real size women, from small to large, talked about their DIFFERENT results and benefits from Oxycise!. I was convinced and wanted to order, then I remembered my husband, the skeptic. Still, I ordered it. It took me a couple of days to tell Brian I ordered a video from the TV. He, of course, said ‘whatever, another $35 down the drain.’ Well…….. only 4 or 5 days later the package came in the mail and we were both home, we popped the video in and watched it, as we were watching we did the basic breath. Brian said ‘I can’t do this, I am a chest breather.’
“Well, to make a long story short, I pushed him, he resisted, I pushed some more, and now he LOVES it!!!!!!!! He says he feels stretched out, energized, and basically great all over. As for me, I love it, too. It is relaxing, yet energizing, and I feel better after doing it. We get up in the morning and do it everyday. It is a great way to spend time together before he goes to work, and a great mutual routine. You would laugh to see us in our tiny living room, him at 6’1″ and me at 4’11”! We just breathe and sniff, breathe and puff. It is great. We aren’t really measuring because we just like the energizing and stretching results. We hike every weekend and walk every night, this is a great addition to our routine. I just have to laugh sometimes to see my big, strong, masculine husband doing Oxycise!
“Now my mother-in-law wants to try it. I can’t wait to hear what she has to say about it!
“Thanks for another way to spend quality time with family!!!!!!!”
“P.S. We have only been doing O! for 5 days and I can feel the difference in my body shape. I really, really, love it!”
I have MUCH more energy
“I have now been using Oxycise! for almost six weeks. While I still haven’t lost any weight, I have lost 2 inches in my waist, 2 in. on my hips and 2 in. in each leg. I have MUCH more energy. I do drink lots of water and am trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. I LOVE Oxycise! and I love the message room. It helps to have encouragement and support from others.”
“The program is great and it works. It’s so much easier than going to the gym.”
My face looks like it did when I graduated high school twenty-some years ago
“I’ve only had the videos for a little under four weeks now…my face looks like it did when I graduated high school twenty-some years ago (to the dismay of the cheerleader I ran into the other day :0). My muscles don’t cramp like they used to, and when they do, I find that the basic breath makes the cramp go away immediately. My arthritis doesn’t bother me much, even with the spring weather. I don’t ‘purr’ when I take a deep breath, anymore. AND, I feel different. I don’t mean ‘alive’ and ‘Energetic,’ although I do feel that, too–I mean when I poke around on my body, it feels different. Even my stubborn hips and lower abdominal (I hesitate to say) muscles. I feel harder, firmer. I am assuming this is muscle. (Would someone PLEASE confirm this for me?) Like you, I haven’t made many changes in my diet–meaning some days I eat right and some days I lose my head completely. So who knows? If I had watched what I ate during the past three weeks (darn those chicken livers, anyway) maybe I WOULD have lost 15 inches instead of 7 or 8? I made the choice. But when I ordered the videos, I promised myself I would do them faithfully for 2 months and then evaluate the results or lack thereof. And you know what? I’ve already made my decision. If you FEEL that much better after doing something, it is worthwhile. (Unless it’s illegal.)”
I have tried aerobics, weight training, diets, you name it
“Hi! I’d just like to say a huge THANK YOU to Jill Johnson for the Oxycise! program. I started the program a week ago; I received it for my birthday, as I wanted to give myself the gift of good health and energy. Well, in a week’s time, I have lost 1.25″ from my chest measurement, 1.5″ on my waist, 1″ on my hips, and 2” on each thigh. A total of almost 8 inches in a week!!! I have tried aerobics, weight training, diets, you name it in the past, with not near this much success in a month or more, let alone a week.
“My energy is skyrocketing, and my vocal performance has never been better! I take voice in Nashville with hopes of being a recording artist, and my breath support is astounding!
“Again, thank you so much. This program is a life saver!”
Oxycise! is the best thing I have ever found for weight loss and energy!
“I had gained about 40 lbs. in the last 4 years and kept having to buy bigger clothes. Although people told me I didn’t look like I weighed as much as I did, I knew that I was uncomfortable. I tried different diets but wasn’t really willing to do much exercise. My energy level was very very low and I suffered from depression. I found Oxycise! on the internet and decided I had nothing to lose.
“I have to say that Oxycise! is the best thing I have ever found for weight loss and energy! In one week, I lost 5 lbs and could just about fit comfortably into my one size smaller pants. Also, I realized immediately that I didn’t crave sugar or chocolate anymore. And believe me that’s a miracle! After 3 1/2 weeks, I can fit into the pants I wore 5 years ago! I have lost a total of 10 lbs. but I know I’ve lost inches all over. I also have a much higher energy level and have no more depression. I’m so excited that something this easy can really work. I think I’ll be doing this for a long long time. Thank you so much for helping me attain my goals! I’ve told lots of friends about it and they’re amazed at my results and are excited to try it for themselves.”
I know this is a program I can do forever
“I have been using Oxycise! along with BodyFlex that I bought and began using before I heard about Oxycise! I love both programs, and they compliment each other well for my schedule. I have lost a total of over 5 inches from my waist, upper abs, lower abs. and thighs in about 6 weeks. The toning is wonderful. I really did not have weight to lose, although I may have dropped a pound or two. I am 41, married and have 3 children. I want to be able to enjoy all of them for a long time. I was thin, but not necessarily totally fit. I have always been very active with sports, and such, but could not discipline myself to do the traditional aerobic exercises faithfully. I look forward to my Oxycise! and BodyFlex breathing ‘workouts.’ And, I am energized. With my youngest being a very active 2 year old, I need to be. I know this is a program I can do forever and not be tuckered out when that 2 year old is 20, and Mom is 60!
“My husband is a United States Marine, who of course needs to stay in shape as part of his commitment to the Corps. He doesn’t mind those 3 to 6 mile runs daily, but he is interested in learning the Oxycise! program. He sees how it has helped me tone and feel energized and sees real benefits to this program. Stress reduction alone makes it a goldmine! Tell Jill she may just be helping our military force to stay fit someday! (It may be a tough fight, to convince them that all that grunting and groaning isn’t needed!) But my husband is open-minded enough to give it a try it, and you need to start somewhere.
“I sent for the report to backup my testimonials to the program working. As you all know, people like scientific ‘proof.’ Thanks for the great program and the great access to yourselves.”
Tighter muscles, changing my shape and better breathing!
“I have been using Oxycise! for a few months, mostly the commuter routine. Though I haven’t really lost any weight, I am definitely reaping the benefits. Tighter muscles, changing my shape and better breathing! … Everyone at work wants to know why I have the energy to make it through the night shift. I tell them about Oxycise!”
My neck is smooth and there is NO double chin!
“Hi – I started doing Oxycise! Level One about three weeks ago. I did the level 1 for two weeks and now have being doing Level 2 for one week. I haven’t lost any weight but my pants are looser. But the best part is my face! I was beginning to have a little pad of fat under my jaw and my neck was getting wrinkled (I’ll be 58 in three weeks – eek!). Well, my neck is smooth and there is NO double chin! I know these exercises work and will do them forever! I am so much more limber and have a lot of energy. I’ve started back to walking (currently at four 15 minutes a week) and have added light weights a few days a week. I’m so healthy it’s disgusting and I love it! … 15 minutes a day! Come on, just do it.”
I have never been able to lose weight and keep it off with such ease
“I’ve been using Oxycise! for one month. I have lost 15 lbs. and a total of 12 inches. Three of my friend have ordered the Oxycise! tape and I have ordered it and sent it to my mother & father. This program is remarkable.
“I have never been able to lose weight and keep it off with such ease. I am watching what I eat, but I have done that before and not lost anything. I also feel so good and have so much energy. I’m hooked for life.”
Immediately after I started Oxycise! I got my joy for living back
“I’m one of your ‘successes’ and spoke to you on the Shopping Channel (Toronto) in September to tell you how much difference your program has made to my life. I’ve not only lost 14 lbs (August 15th to November 12th) and am down to my goal already but I ‘got my life back’. A hysterectomy two years ago had left me feeling ‘fit’ (just 10 or so lbs overweight) but emotionally ‘flat’.
“Not any more. Immediately after I started Oxycise! I got my joy for living back. No more down days. And to be able to lose weight so easily too….Incredible. I’ve shared my ‘secret’ with all my friends and colleagues and many of them have begun the program too. Now if only I could get my husband going too – he’s seen the results with me and he has digestive problems and extra weight around his middle that I KNOW Oxycise! would resolve……
“Thank you doesn’t begin to express my gratitude…”
Update from Gillian:
“Almost to the one year mark since I started your program, and I thought I’d give you a little update as encouragement for anyone who is skeptical. I bought the level 1 and the cd and book last August…I needed help learning the breathing technique and was amazed at how quickly you responded to my email. With your help I quickly mastered the breathing technique and I’ve never looked back.
“About 6 – 8 weeks later I bought the level 2 (I alternate them but I prefer the level 2 exercises). It’s so easy to incorporate 15 minutes of exercise into my morning before I dress for work – even when I’m on holiday I will do what I can remember of my favourite positions.
“Not only did I lose the 20 lbs which I had gained over the past 10 years (in a hurry 2 – 3 months) but for me the biggest benefit is the increased energy and joy for living that I feel when I do the program faithfully (4 – 5 times a week).
“Prior to starting Oxycise! I was struggling along with an extra 20 lbs and feeling quite ‘flat’ after surgery (hysterectomy) two years earlier. That’s just a dim memory now and the last year has shown me how to take control not only of my weight and energy level but also my feelings of well-being.
“Even when I’m sick (not very often these days) I still do my Oxycise just with with less Gusto 🙂 I’ve talked to all my friends about this program and even my family doctor has been made aware of the benefits I have experienced.
“Thank you Jill from one more of your grateful adherents.”
Today, I am 52 years young and not afraid that each day may very well be my last.
“This is my testimony. I have struggled with weight on and off for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried it all, as have so many. My mother died of a mild heart attack at the age of 53 … (and she also had struggled with weight for years without any real success) last summer I was coming to the end of it fast … I had gained and gained without really overeating . . . I was so tired and feeling sicker physically by the day…I went to the doctor, sure that the high blood pressure medication was making me sicker than I needed to be. So, he told me to take an aspirin a day to prevent a heart attack or stroke…he also told me to double up on my blood pressure medication and come back when I was finished and he’d put me on estrogen as well…at this point I weighed 250 lbs and was a tight size 46…but he also told me when I questioned him about the pills that I might as well forget about losing weight because this is what happens to women over 50. Needless to say I didn’t feel very victorious…I tried doubling up on the pills and really felt sick so I quit that.
“…My husband and I go out mushroom picking in the fall and I was finding it a struggle to walk across the yard. And can you imagine how hard it would be to drag 250 lbs up the mountains to pick mushrooms. I had also taken to hiding out more or less at home because I felt fat…forget the mirror! Amen! Then as it was so incredibly hot here this fall, we couldn’t go picking because the sun dried up the mushrooms…(not that I was in any shape to go anyway) so I had taken to viewing the shopping channel now and then and caught you on in September. At one point you either read or talked about someone over 50 losing weight on the Oxycise! Program…and I felt the Lord as ‘this is for you’…you also gave a demonstration of the Oxycise! Basic Breath and I ordered the program. As it takes 10 days for us on the west coast of Canada to get stuff from the Shopping Channel I started deep breathing from what I had seen you do on T.V.
“Since I got my videos I have gone from the tight 46 down to a 42– in some cases 40– as far as sizes go. I have lost fat from all over … when I started my waist had gone somewhere…now I actually have one back. My face, which had disappeared into a mass of chins more like one fat blob, has actually taken on bone structure once again. I’ve lost about 3 inches off my bust, at least 4 off of my hips…thighs and buns and arms about 3 inches…I even lost a ring size…and I’ve not changed anything I eat…
“My husband who took early retirement this past January is 55 and started doing it too…he has lost his middle pouch, and also lost off his face and neck. Now, we do it together in the morning and I do it again at night …
“At first I ordered the program because I didn’t care how or why it worked, I just wanted to get doing it. But now people are coming up to me and asking, ‘What have you been doing?’ and when I tell them ‘Breathing’, they look at me like I’m nuts. So I ordered the book and commuter tape this time.
“The other best part about this is that for years my weight has driven my husband nuts (we’ve been married for 34 yrs 8 months) and for the first time in ages he is hopeful I’ll keep losing and so am I. I feel good and am climbing up the mountains getting mushrooms. Today, I am 52 years young and not afraid that each day may very well be my last…last summer when my granddaughter was visiting with us she said to me one day, ‘Gramma, Mom says that you’re getting so fat you are likely to die anytime, so can I have your rings when you die?’ Well, praise God for Oxycise! and you! This is one Gramma who is energized and enjoying every minute of losing unwanted lbs and inches.
“… I get tears in my eyes when I think of how much Oxycise! has done for me.
“God Bless you Jill,”
All the cellulite I had on my thighs is smoothing out and becoming toned
“I bought your program about a month ago, and just let me say, it’s absolutely wonderful! I do it faithfully every day and my energy levels have skyrocketed. The energy I get from doing Oxycise! lasts all day long, not just for a couple of hours. In the three weeks I’ve been doing the program I have seen such amazing results. All the cellulite I had on my thighs is smoothing out and becoming toned. The pouch in my stomach from having a baby is starting to go away. I love your program and I know this is something I can do for the rest of my life. I’ve said goodbye to the endless diets I’ve been on and working out at a gym. Thank you for giving me my life back. You are a godsend.”
Beth A. Wagner
(Beth’s second letter)
“I’ve written to you before to tell you how much Oxycise! has changed my life. But I just want to let you know that I recently purchased a Richard Simmons heart monitor watch, and wore it yesterday during my Oxycise! workout. And my heart rate went up to 145 during the workout. (my resting heart rate is 95.) I now know that I am truly getting an aerobic workout as well as burning fat. I didn’t realize my heart rate went up that much while doing Oxycise! I now know that I’m in my target heart range and getting a great workout without sweating.
I figured I was just going to have to accept the fact that my body was aging
“I have always thought of myself as being physically fit; In fact my family and friends have always considered me to be an exercise fanatic. Health and fitness have always been a top priority for me. My father is a doctor. I studied nursing and received an LPN certificate and my husband is an RN. For the past twenty-some years, exercise has been an important part of my life. At least 3 times each week I completed an hour-long session. My most recent exercise routine consisted of the following: 15 minutes of ballet stretching and warm-up exercises, followed by 30 minutes of aerobics, and ending with another 15 minutes of cool-down stretching. By the time I set aside part of my day for exercise, then spent the hour on my routine, followed by a shower and changing clothes, it took about 2 hours from start to finish.
“I have never been overweight. In fact, I have always been 5 to 10 pounds underweight for my 5’9” height, according to all the charts I have seen. But as I reached my 40’s, I noticed that I was not able to maintain the same muscle tone I had when I was younger, even though I have faithfully continued to exercise. I felt like I was already spending a lot of time exercising each week; I didn’t want to spend more time, but I didn’t know what else to do. When I increased the length of my workouts my muscles became sore. I figured I was just going to have to accept the fact that my body was aging.
“Then, a few months ago, my sister told me about Oxycise! Since the middle of October, I have been doing Oxycise! 6 days a week and I LOVE it! It’s just so easy and convenient. My husband has joined me on most of the days I do Oxycise! He has lost 12 pounds. (He even lost 1-1/2 inches from his neck alone.) I have toned up all over –I have actually gained five pounds! My legs and calves and arms feel much tighter and more toned. The ‘jiggle’ in my buttocks has tightened. Even though I gained weight, which is probably muscle gain, my waist is smaller– the pants I used to wear fit looser around my waist now. Another thing that has changed is my complexion. I have always had trouble with acne, since my high school days. My skin is clearer now. I have even noticed that the whites of my eyes look whiter. I feel more healthy now than I have ever felt with ANY exercise I have done in the past.
“When I finish an Oxycise! session I feel invigorated, and yet relaxed at the same time. I feel good, not worn out. I find that I am able to do Oxycise! even when I have a cold (something I was never able to do with aerobics) and I actually feel better afterwards. In fact, I often tend to feel a little ‘down’ in my mood and sluggish in the afternoons; but if I plan to Oxycise! around that time I feel so much better afterwards.
“I’m so happy to have found something that is so easy to do and takes so little time. Oxycise! leaves you free to do other things you would like to do. It lets you be fit without having to worry about a fitness program!”
I’m hooked on Oxycise!
“Yesterday was my one-month marker for doing Oxycise! I weighed and measured and entered it in that terrific chart book you get. [“Chart Your Success”]
“I have lost 4½ lbs (12½ since the end of July) and have lost a total of 8 inches — that’s counting chest, waist, hips and both thighs. I lost 3” off my waist!
“I’m starting to fit into clothes I haven’t been able to squeeze into for a while and I’m standing straighter and taller. The best part is how wonderful I feel. The extra oxygen is energizing. The stretching positions feel wonderful. I’m hooked on Oxycise!”
I WILL NOT BE REINSTATING MY GYM MEMBERSHIP!!!
“I really must be honest, I thought these OUTRAGEOUS claims of inches lost had to be a farce! Here I was working out 6 days a week, over an hour at a crack — how could ‘breathing’ be any more effective?!!
I WAS SO WRONG!!!!
“I have had such instant gratification with this. I feel like it cannot be real. I have done nothing but Oxycise! (sometimes I do Bodyflex in the morning — it unstuffs my nose) and check out these results:
“October 4 measurements:
upper abs: 27″
lower abs: 33″
each thigh at widest point: 21″
each upper arm at widest point: 10.5”
“October 26 measurements:
upper abs: 25.5″
lower abs: 31″
upper arms: 9.5”
“That totals 13.25″ lost! I am tight and energetic. I WILL NOT BE REINSTATING MY GYM MEMBERSHIP!!! I feel like I have a fuller life, with more time and a better attitude! My husband worries I will lose too much — but let me tell ya — WHO DOESN’T WANT A 23” WAISTLINE? Well, I do and I think it’s gonna happen.
“Jill — you have produced a miracle and I am eating my words (those nasty little doubts).
“My advice to all — KEEP BREATHING!”
It was very important for me to have an exercise plan that was easy on my joints
“I wanted to write and tell you how thrilled I am with Oxycise! I have been using it for just one week now but am already feeling the benefits. Some of the things I am pleased with are:
1. First, it arrived so quickly. I ordered it on a Monday and it arrived that Friday. This is a world’s record for Canadian post! It made me feel that my order was handled quickly and efficiently. Thank you.
2. I love that there is such great internet support for Oxycise! I really enjoy reading the oxychat site — people write in questions that I have had too, and it’s great to read the answers and to post myself. I also enjoy the newsletter. Terrific to have that kind of support!
3. The actual exercises are wonderful. I feel so energized. It took me a couple of days to feel that I could really coordinate the breathing and the positioning. But it’s becoming a much more natural feeling already.
4. I had tried another breathing exercise program but it was way too noisy! I like to do the exercises in the early morning, and the other program was waking my kids up — not something I want in the early hours! One of the first days I did that program, one of my daughters woke up and came running out — she thought I was choking and dying. Oxycise! gives me an excellent workout and it’s nice and quiet! I was also hesitant (i.e., didn’t do it!) to do the other program when I was visiting relatives this summer. Just sounds too odd. I can do Oxycise! at anytime, anywhere and no one needs to know. I frequently do positions while I work on the computer.
5. I have been focusing on eating healthy foods for a few weeks now and have lost 10 lbs. I have also been trying to do some other form of exercise every day — walking with friends, playing tennis or following an exercise tape. I had been following this program for 2 weeks before receiving Oxycise! so it’s hard to say what benefits are from Oxycise! and what are from the others. Actually, I’m sure it’s a combination of all of these.
6. I did notice after the first few days of Oxycise! that my abdominal and buttock muscles were really sore! Oxycise! gives them a great workout — better than the other exercises I have done. Since adding Oxycise! to my day just one week ago, I have lost 2″ around my waist! It’s much easier for me to hold those muscles in throughout the day, too.
7. I think Oxycise! also really energizes me for the day. I have so much more energy than before.
8. I have also noticed an improvement in my posture. I think some of this is due to the tightening of those muscles used in standing tall through Oxycise! and some through just becoming more aware of those muscles.
9. I’m closing in quickly on 50 and have been feeling my age in my joints. Therefore, it was very important for me to have an exercise plan that was easy on my joints — not a lot of jumping around, etc. Oxycise! is terrific for that. It is gentle yet strenuous at the same time — you really feel like you get a good workout. I like the way Jill demonstrates how to modify the positions if you have trouble with particular joints. I can do all the exercises now but am pleased that it is a plan that can be modified to last me the rest of my life.
10. I love the Oxycise! Chart Your Success booklet. Really fun to fill in all the different parts — food diary, measurement charts, Body Mass Index, etc. I love the little increments you use for charting so that the feeling of success is easy to achieve!
11. I shouldn’t forget one of the best parts of Oxycise! — how little time it takes. I’m a single mom of two who works full time and my time is precious. Oxycise! takes just 15 minutes a day and I feel like I get an excellent workout. So it’s very time efficient.
12. I’ve been so excited about Oxycise! that I already ordered the Level II tape. I’ve heard great things about it on the oxy list and the OxyChat, so am excited to see it.
Thank you so much for Oxycise! I absolutely love it and am very pleased with my results in just one week! This is a plan I will use forever!
I’m so excited, I haven’t felt this good for years
“I’ve been visiting this site for the past three weeks or so, and I’ve started Oxycise! One week later, the results I’ve experienced are tremendous. I have so much energy, I’ve lost a total of 10 inches but I’ve not gone on the scale. I’m so excited, I haven’t felt this good for years.
“Since I started Oxycise! I also have less craving for cigarettes and I’m down to only 1 a day, soon to stop completely. Also I noticed that I don’t drink as much alcohol. I went to the Club on Friday and only had 1 drink for the whole night and no cigarettes.
“This O! is wonderful! It’s the best!”
After 20 years of hell, I can actually see a light at the end of the longest, darkest tunnel anyone can imagine
“To make a 20 year story of hell short, I weighed in at 317 pounds early this year. Both my doctor and I had reached a point where we were frustrated with my problem. I could see no happy future for me. You name it, I have either tried it or bought it. I have joined probably every fitness place in the city, but it’s impossible to do aerobic exercise when five minutes into the routine, you’re dead!
“In my neverending search for a healthy way of losing weight and keeping if off, I had read some articles on how proper breathing during exercise was the key to increasing the body’s metabolic rate. (This is what the specialist I had seen said I needed to do.) This is all fine and dandy, but I couldn’t find out how to achieve this. So I was back to square one… frustrated and desperate. Then one night Jill was on the Canadian home shopping channel. Between what I had been reading and what Jill was saying on TV, I figured I had nothing to lose and purchased the tapes. I had spent a darn sight more on many other gimmicks, so what was $30. That was four weeks ago and have not looked back!!!!
“I have lost at total of 17 inches (measured at the bust, waist, hips, thighs, and arms). I feel energized and ambitious. I have an appointment to see my doctor for a weigh-in at the end of October and I can hardly wait to see her expression. I cannot believe what has happened. After 20 years of hell, I can actually see a light at the end of the longest, darkest tunnel anyone can imagine.
“All I can say is that if anyone is hesitant about trying this method, don’t be; and if you aren’t seeing results, maybe you need to review the introduction again and follow slowly. I don’t do each position exactly the same way that Jill demonstrates, simply because I can’t get my body into some of those positions, but I have found a happy medium and will continue to work at it till I’m doing them just like Jill.
“Jill, if they could canonize a person for making people healthy, happy, and hopeful, then you get my vote. I have spent many long hours crying myself to sleep, begging for a miracle by the morning. Nothing ever happened until you came into my life. Both my husband and son can’t believe the difference in just this short a period of time. They both have been pillars of strength for me in the past and now I can finally pay them back with a happier, healthier mom and wife. I tell everyone I can about you and what you are doing. Please accept my sincerest and deepest thanks for making a miracle happen.”
Update on Gail:
“This is an update to my first message sent 4 weeks ago. I have been on the program now for just over 2 months and have lost 16.5 pounds and 28.5 inches. I was so excited after the first 4 weeks when I had lost 17 inches that I wrote my first message in the Oxychat and Jill actually read my story on the Canadian Shopping Channel. I said that I had a doctors appointment at the end of October and would update my progress. Well, as you can see, there is a miracle in progress here. My doctor was pleasantly surprised and confessed ignorance about the program. I have to see her again in 2 months (just before Christmas) to see if this is all really working.
“If there is anyone still skeptical about doing Oxycise!, don’t be. I didn’t think anything could be this easy. I want to do the Oxycise! routine, and not because I have to, but because I feel better and I know it’s making me healthier. I have more energy now than when I was ‘skinny’ (over 20 years ago). I have a long, long way to go, but I’ll tell you this, I look forward to doing my breathing. I do it in the car, I do some after lunch at the office, and in the evening I do a full routine. Don’t let the dust settle on those tapes… plug them in and Keep on breathing….”
Another Update from Gail:
“Oxycise! is addictive…it’s a way of life, it’s a happy feeling—IT’S GREAT.”
“It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my progress. I am very excited to say that since September, I have lost a total of 39 pounds and 38.5 inches. For the first time in about 5 years I will be looking at a summer weight under 300 pounds.
“After Christmas the progress became even more noticeable. I have cheek bones, you can actually see my jaw line, I have a more defined neckline, my calf muscles are noticeable (not just big blobs of fat), my upper arms are starting to firm up, and so much more. For the first time in 20 years, I find I can’t wear my rings and not because they are too tight, but they are so loose I’m afraid I’ll lose them. I just wish I had a machine that I could walk into and measure all the inches all over the place. Since starting with the Oxycise! program, I feel so much better and have more energy than I have had in a long time. And to my surprise, I also found that without really thinking about it, I have improved my diet and in general eat more sensibly.
“I attribute these changes to Jill and Oxycise! When you feel good, you think more positively, and and as a result making changes seem to be effortless. I do the Oxycise! routine a minimum of 5 times a week without complaining or thinking of ways to get out of it. I have even added some of my own positions. I did find that there are periods where it seems like instead of losing, I’m gaining inches, but I continue to persevere then suddenly whoosh, more inches and weight come off! Oxycise! is addictive…it’s a way of life, it’s a happy feeling—IT’S GREAT.”
More from Gail:
“Please use my message as you see fit. I think it’s important for everyone to know that you can accomplish your goals, just don’t expect miracles to happen overnight. It took me 7 months to lose the 39 lbs. and 38.5” (March 17), but I know that those pounds and inches won’t be coming back. ‘Slow and sure wins the race’!’
“I am not adverse to you publishing my name, etc. Sometimes people just need to hear about someone who has experienced living with 150+ pounds and is finally finding success in a health program.”
I have noticed a tremendous difference in my energy level and body tone
“I have been Oxycising for the past two months and have noticed a tremendous difference in my energy level and body tone. I have lost over 7 pounds and over 10 inches. That’s not too bad for someone primarily using the commuter routine twice a day.”
I even do them on weekends simply because it makes me feel good
“I love it! I do the exercises first thing in the morning before I go to work. It helps to wake me up and energize me for the day. I notice a definite difference when, for some reason, I don’t get to do them in the morning. I even do them on weekends simply because it makes me feel good.
“I had lost about 12 pounds before I ever started Oxycise!, but then I seemed to plateau. I couldn’t seem to lose those last 3-4 pounds that I wanted to. Since using Oxycise! consistently for the two and a half weeks, I’ve lost a couple of pounds. I think if I would take my measurements, that is where I would notice a big difference. My clothes are loose on me. I like loose, but a lot of things are now baggy!
“I love it! I even had to buy new jeans.”
Who would have ever thought that just by breathing I could get rid of the cellulite on my thighs
“I’ve been using the Oxycise! program for a total of 6 weeks and I have seen a big difference in the cellulite on my thighs. It’s absolutely unbelievable. Who would have ever thought that just by breathing I could get rid of the cellulite on my thighs that jogging 3 miles couldn’t do. This doesn’t even include the tremendous amount of energy, overall feeling of well being and great looking skin that I now have as well!!
“I’m very excited because I’ll be attending my 10 year class reunion in October and I’m well ahead of schedule.
“Well as I used to say in junior high school , Oxycise is tubular!!!!!!”
I feel great and have lots of energy
“It’s been four weeks for me and my progress is like a turtle. I am working out every day and getting better at it! I lost 1 1/4″ this week and 1 pound. That brings my total up to 6 1/2″ and 3 pounds. I feel great and have lots of energy. My chiropractor says my lower back is getting stronger and better! I feel much less pain in that area. I’m developing muscle tone and can even sit up from a prone position with little effort! I’m very pleased with my results. I just keep reminding myself that ‘slow and steady wins the race!’ ”
“Keep on breathing!”
Oyxcise! is the best thing since sliced bread . . . (whole grain of course!)
“Love OXYCISE! My approach is a little unorthodox and I hope that’s OK – I concentrate and just do the Oxycise! breathing – refreshing!
“I find it so relaxing, energizing and centering – I do it 15 minutes in AM to music and 10-15 while walking my dogs (we walk about 35 m.p. wk) I still do Body Flex ’cause I really enjoy it and it provided me w/lovely results. The combination gives me variety and focus. No gym, no contraptions– just me, air and my breathing is the great part about Oxycise! I love your position ideas in the workout and use them and so I am really looking forward to the intermediate workout.
“Oxycise! has given me (in just 7 days):
FAST WEIGHT LOSS IN AB AREA
FACIAL DIFFERENCE (I’m 48)
GREAT POSITION IDEAS
INCH LOSS!!!!!!! (Almost immediately)
“Sooo . . . Oyxcise! is the best thing since sliced bread . . . (whole grain of course!) Also love your newsletter – it’s great seeing info and ideas and inspiration from others! GREAT JOB!”
“P.S. It’s just amazing to me why all my friends sweat and strain and still complain about their weight. They spin, lift and though jeans are tighter and scale is higher – I tell them and they just make fun – wish they would just try Oxycise! – I eat lots of lovely, whole food and they count every calorie and grain. Oh and that’s another Oxycise! plus . . . you can do it after you eat. It DOESN’T have to be done on an empty stomach (and mine rarely is!)”
Update from Kasey:
“I LOVE your Level II tape — it reminds me of a lovely stretchy ballet class.”
“I got a real kick out of seeing my letter from a month ago to you in print and so I thought that I would give you a update (and feel free to print!) Have been Oxycizing since April 15 when my videos arrived and I still love it! I combine it with a body flex workout, one in the AM and one in the PM.
“I am slowly losing but I FEEL GREAT !
“I loved your recent suggestions to lower my set point.
“Whenever I get a headache I do a little Oxycise! breathing and away it goes. I thought that maybe this could help some other breathers. Breathing also seems to put the kabosh on my occasional hot flashes…it makes them go away in a FLASH. I LOVE your Level 2 workout — it reminds me of a lovely stretchy ballet class.
“Thanks and thanks and thanks,”
I know Oxycise! works, because it worked for me
“It’s no secret that I’ve had my own battle with unwanted inches, and I’ve tried so many things to try and slim down. Jill has developed a remarkable program that is so simple and produces real results. I know Oxycise! works, because it worked for me. Within six weeks I lost nearly 4 inches from my waist, 4 inches from my hips, and 2 inches from each thigh! But my favorite change is my increased energy — and I notice I sleep better, too. Oxycise! truly changes lives.”
It’s not a depleting type of workout…it sort of ‘restores’ you physically and emotionally
“It was such a treat to have your package waiting for me when I returned from North Carolina. At the time I had been doing Body Flex for two weeks, and now have done two weeks of Oxycise!
“I didn’t take my body measurements when I first began either program. Basically I don’t have a lot of inches or weight to lose; I just wanted to tone up and feel better and maybe get rid of some cellulite if that’s possible. (Also, I’m going to my 30-year high school reunion in July and it would be nice to be looking good if you know what I mean!)
“Both programs offer the flexibility to do them when you are traveling and can be done in any room so they are convenient. You don’t get all sweaty and exhausted from doing either routine. I actually look forward to doing the Oxycise! workout and so I don’t postpone it or dread it. Always I feel energized after doing the exercises…it’s not a depleting type of workout…it sort of ‘restores’ you physically and emotionally.
“I was enthusiastic about the Body Flex program when I began it. But now that I have been doing Oxycise! for a couple weeks, I honestly feel it is far superior. It is remarkably simple and certainly easy enough for anyone to master if they focus on it . . . Body Flex seemed almost ‘too easy’ for me and I didn’t really feel I was getting a complete workout. I just feel that I am doing a more complete, well-thought-out workout with Oxycise!”
I have found muscles!
“Hi! I have been Oxycising for about 2 weeks now. I have lost around 3″ so far, but no pounds. But, I know why–I have found muscles! I was sitting at my keyboard wearing a sleeveless shirt–looked down and saw a bicep without flexing! Now, where did I get that? Over the weekend I was flinging bags of mulch into our van with no real effort at all–this is unheard of for me! I am trotting up the stairs at work with little or no exertion, and my quads are really hard when I flex them. I have energy to spare, and I feel so healthy. This is simply incredible–I still want to lose almost 75 pounds (I had lost around 75 when I began Oxycise!), so I am no ideal specimen, but I am probably in my best shape in over 15 years! I never thought I would be able to see such rapid and fantastic results from exercise. Jill, I know your wonderful program will help me be in better shape now, at 41, than I have ever been in my life! I have already started down the road–and the goal is in sight.”
Looking forward to wearing a bathing suit this summer!
“I’m on my second week of Oxycise! and have lost 4 lbs and 3 inches. I normally go to bed around 10 PM and this week I’ve been able to stay up past the 11 PM news.
“Looking forward to wearing a bathing suit this summer!”
It is simply amazing to me, but my results have dramatically improved since I began your program
“I am also one who has ridden the weight loss roller coaster all my life, including the phen-fen diet. Like most, I lost weight on these diets. Also like most, I gained it all back and then some. I decided that I had had enough with the fad diets so I started looking for something that didn’t require me to put a foreign substance into my body.
“My most successful weight loss experience came when I started walking regularly, so that is exactly what I did. My husband used to work out with weights a lot also, actually something we enjoyed doing together, so we both decided to sign up with a personal trainer. I was working out in some fashion at least seven days a week!! Somehow, though, the weight wasn’t coming off. It seemed as if I was building muscle through the weight training, but it was beneath all the fat. I figured that I had seriously messed with my metabolism with all the fad diets.
“Then I saw you on QVC. Your program made logical sense to me. I initially started the program just to boost my fat loss. I also sing and play instruments so I figured that it would help me there as well.
“It is simply amazing to me, but my results have dramatically improved since I began your program. I am actually starting to see some fat loss now. The most dramatic places are my face and stomach. I have lost 1 1/2 inches from my waist in two weeks! I am so pleased that I have decided to do the level one workout twice a day. I am doing the workout in the morning and in the evenings. In the morning, I taking a break while at work to do the workout. I enjoy doing the exercises during work because they help me keep my energy up during the day.
“Thanks for your wonderful discovery!!! I am spreading the word.”
That’s a total of 11 inches in 4 days
“Hi! Well I had been on body flex for 4 weeks (doing it twice a day for about three weeks) and I saw no results, only one inch in my thighs. I was upset. I found this website and thought, ‘OK, I’ll give this a try.’
“. . . I got it last Friday and studied the program on Saturday and started doing Oxycise! on Sunday. Today is Wednesday and I had to measure just to see if it was working . . .well, here are the results: 4 inches off my chest, 1″ off my waist, 4″ off my hips and 2” on each thigh!!!! That’s a total of 11 inches in 4 days. I’m on a low carb diet [prescribed by my doctor]. But I was on the same [diet] with body flex and did not see the results. I will never stop [Oxycise!].
“Hubby even told me this morning he could see a change!!! I love it!! Now I need the commuter routine and level 2. I hope those of you not seeing results will give it a little longer. I’m very over- weight, so maybe some of us see results faster. Also, I lost 4 pounds and talk about energy!!!”
I am free of the diet shackles and the guilt ridden meals
“I just wanted to e-mail you and let you know how great the program has been for me. I’m sure at this point people are really catching on and you are swamped with mail but since I told you I would keep you abreast of my results, I will…
“In 3 weeks (I took one week off and I regret it!) everything has changed for me. I have lost 11 inches and 4 pounds, I lost 5 inches the first week! I feel better about myself because I don’t feel like such a failure anymore. I used to run every day and I would get on the scale and it went nowhere and I felt helpless. Now, I do my Oxy once a day and the inches just pour off… it takes less time and I get better results.
“On top of the inch loss, I have had more energy, my menstrual cycle has been uneventful (no cramps, no bloating…), my nails are stronger and nicer looking, my hair is growing faster, and my complexion is rosy and bright!
“I must admit to you that I have been eating terribly. I am a full time college student who lives on Pizza and Taco Bell and while I would NEVER suggest that people eat like this I am amazed that in spite of it I still continue to lose. It is a wonderful feeling. I am free of the diet shackles and the guilt ridden meals… I am free of the constant exercise routine that gets me nowhere… I am free to look to the future with happiness rather than dread.”
“Thank You Jill Johnson!”
I love how I feel — renewed — after doing Oxycise!
“I have Grave’s disease, and since my thyroid has been 100% destroyed I’ve had no energy and put on 30 pounds in one year. I had been taking a 2 hour nap during the day, and I would force myself to make it to 9 pm at night.
“Since Oxycise! I have so much energy. I feel like cleaning my house and cooking dinner. I now stay up with the kids and help them with their homework until 10:30 pm. I was always winded going up and down my stairs, and now it doesn’t bother me. I’m sleeping better — I usually have such a hard time. I’ve noticed that I feel satisfied at meals and don’t crave sweets — it seems that oxygen has affected my taste buds.
“Best of all, I got into my jeans last night that I haven’t been able to wear for so long! (I couldn’t even pull them up over my rear end.) My clothes look nicer. My mid-section has felt so bloated for so long, and that is going away. With so many exercise programs you don’t see results for so long, but with Oxycise! I see results now and it keeps me motivated to continue.
“This is the first thing I’ve done (I even cry) that doesn’t destroy my energy. I can feel changes every day — even my lungs getting more capacity. I feel like the old Jan is back!
“All around I feel healthier. We just really love it. It’s only been a week and I feel so much better about myself.”
Jan Worthen, mother of four, Pine, Colorado
Jan’s 16-year-old daughter, Angie:
“I love how I feel — renewed — after doing Oxycise! I can fit in my pants and look so much better. I’ve had to wear wide leg jeans all my life, and now I can wear regular ones. The minute I get home from school I put Oxycise! on. I love that I don’t have to change my clothes, and it hardly takes any time from my schedule — and I can visually see results. I never, ever thought I could do anything to affect my body size. I’m ecstatic!”
Comments from mother (Jan) about daughter (Angie):
“I recently talked Angie into buying some tight-fitting jeans (you couldn’t fit a finger between her skin and the fabric) and as she was leaving for school, I asked her, why are you wearing your baggy jeans. It turns out that those were the new tight jeans, but they are now baggy! Angie is on Cloud 9. Angie was getting a cold last week, but she started Oxycise! and never came down with the cold.”

Waist: 1 inch
Hips: 1 inch
Thigh: 1/2 inch
Rib Cage: 1 inch
Waist: 1-1/2 inches
Hips: 2 inches
Thigh: 5 inches
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!”

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.
I welcome the program to improve gas exchange, mobility, endurance and reduce pain and discomfort
“I am a physical therapist of 20 years and was just recently introduced to Oxycise! by one of my clients. I am thrilled with the program and I am utilizing it in the following ways….
1. Pain patients often hold their breath and shallow breathe which contributes to their pain. Improving their gas exchange reduces their acidic state and promotes an alkaline state thereby reducing pain. They report reduced pain and improved mobility with the 15-minute Oxycise! program.
2. I have cardio-pulmonary patients who lack energy due to poor oxygenation. They report improved energy and endurance after completing a 15-minute Oxycise! program.
3. Wheelchair bound patients who need to keep their lungs clear to prevent pneumonia have benefits from this program. I am in the process of introducing it to an Assisted Living Facility for their group exercise.
4. After a strenuous training program, I enjoy Oxycise! with my husband and report no muscle soreness and pain when using Oxycise! directly after strenuous muscular activity.
“I know that Oxycise! has been developed as a weight reduction program, however, as a therapist, I welcome the program to improve gas exchange, mobility, endurance and reduce pain and discomfort. Our Physical and Occupational therapy staff welcomes this program as an asset to our rehabilitation facility.”
Husband just commented on what a curvy waist I now have
“I have been doing oxycise now for nearly 2 years in that time I have increased energy and flexibility, a lot more mobile at only 54 years old then when I started, I felt like a 90 year old and was having trouble keeping up with our grandson. I have also noticed improved skin conditions and a firmer face.
“I realized that I was not breathing out as forcefully as I should have been doing. Jill was right I was actually pushing the abdomen out on the inhale which made it hard then to pull it up and in on the 3 sniffs and exhale. This in turn seemed to make the stomach muscle stick out and so I always had a stomach. Now I really feel the stomach tighten as I forcefully breath out. Wow what a difference it makes when you do things properly and of course I have made a real conscious effort to eat only in the A and B group as discussed in the Fuel for Success Book.
“What I did was to practice breathing with my hands on the lower rib cage so I was filling up the lungs and abdomen without pushing the lower abdomen out. With this breathing technique the lower abdomen just naturally extended with yummy oxygen and thus I was able to successfully draw the abdomen in when it was required.
“I am now experiencing a much flatter stomach which is making me feel younger.
“I also went back to using the Level 1 DVD which I am finding the whole body is firming up especially the torso. Husband has only just commented on what a curvy waist I now have and how am looking quite taut.
“Thanks Jill I don’t know what us humans would have done if you did not search, establish and share your knowledge on the ease of looking and feeling great. I will also mention I did grab one of my old exercise DVD’s which I used to love to do but found some of it hard to do. It was easy to do because of how flexible I have become through Oxycise but after the exercise instead of feeling exhilarated and alive I felt drained and sore.
“So Oxycise really does work giving you a great workout and helping us lose weight, become flexible and feel fantastic, as well as looking younger.”
Thank you for a new lease on life at this age!
“I am 83 years old and was turned down at Curves so have been doing your Oxycises for 6 weeks and notice a feeling of well- being, more energy, never have trouble sleeping anymore and my clothes feel looser. I look forward to every day immediately after breakfast doing my exercises.
“I would like to say that we musn’t be impatient. It is the steady routine of at least 5 days a week ( I prefer 6 or 7 ) that produces results. Thank you for a new lease on life at this age!”
It’s like getting a runner’s high without the pain of running
“I’m a pretty active person, I like doing aerobics and power walking, and I’ve recently started jogging. Six months ago I added Oxycise! to my repertoire of workouts, and immediately saw an improvement in muscle tone and definition, and an increase in flexibility.
“It took a while for my stubborn body to let go of inches: A few months ago I could barely button my black jeans and they were too uncomfortable to wear. Today I feel like they’re going to fall off my hips!
“My body is a work in progress – I’m still in the process of losing inches and resculpting my body. I feel so invigorated after doing an Oxycise! workout, it’s like getting a runner’s high without the pain of running. I’ve also seen an improvement in my asthma, my hair and nails are growing like crazy, my skin has improved (although I’m still working on getting rid of the wrinkles). As long as I can breathe, I will keep Oxycising!”
I have more energy than ever before, even with traditional exercise which always left me tired
“I am an avid Oxyciser. I have been doing Oxycise! for about 6 months now. I started using Bodyflex 1 year ago and have tried to acquire every book ever written about oxygen and breathing techniques. I found the Oxycise! website during my search about oxygen and converted to this program. I feel that I made more progress with the Oxycise! program. I also have sinus problems that often keep me from breathing through my nose. However, I have seen great improvements with my sinus’ using Oxycise!
“I am 34 years old and a mother of 2 small children. I am a size 8 average and have always exercised. My children keep me very busy and I don’t have time for the 30 minutes – 1 hour per day traditional exercise. I was so excited to find Oxycise! as it does the trick in 15 a day. I also have more energy than ever before, even with traditional exercise which always left me tired. I’m not looking to lose a lot of weight, instead I’d like to maintain my weight and improve my overall health and fitness. I’ll be doing Oxycise! for the rest of my life and I always try to pass the word along.”
After a lifetime of being obese the weight is finally coming off
“A thousand thank you’s to Jill. I began Oxycise! 58 days ago with very low expectations of actually finding something that would work to take off the weight and give me some energy.
“There are few products I have not tried…I was becoming desperate to find a way to get the weight off. Even my husband was skeptical and said it would not work. Two weeks later he started Oxycising with me each evening.
“I have lost 18 pounds and gone from a tight size 18 down to a loose size 14. I have lost 10 3/4 inches off four points. What a difference this has made to both my husband and myself. He is in the Army and must maintain a certain weight. A few months back he was put on the fat boy program and was being threatened with a discharge. Now he has lost 10 pounds and two pant sizes. No more threats because of his weight now. We are more active now and healthier than ever before. Even my face has a less round look and is becoming more defined. All I can say is Thank You so much to Jill Johnson for a product that really works. After a lifetime of being obese the weight is finally coming off. God Bless.”
I lost 26″ and 34 pounds
“I started Weight Watchers weighing 172.2 lbs. age 39…About a month later I saw Jill on TSC and ordered Oxycise!. I started Oxycise! along with my Weight Watchers program…
“I now wear a size 5 or 7. Wow, I feel like a new person. Oxycise! has done wonders for me. I have so much more energy, more stamina, I sleep better and deeper. I have just a general sense of well being that wasn’t there before.
“Recently I have been competing in x-country ski events. I felt a little wiped out after but on the drive home I decided to do my commuter routine. What a great idea that was. By the time I got home I felt absolutely wonderful.
“I would like to thank Jill once again, for her wonderful program. It has changed my life for the better. Recently I introduced a friend to Oxycise! and she is down 4″ in two weeks. Now she is becoming an Oxycise! faithful. I really attribute Oxycise and Weight Watchers for the wonderful changes in my life. Even my husband says my attitude is better.”
I was so tired all the time, stressed out and felt ‘weighed’ down
“I am a 30 year old single mother of twins. I started Oxycising at the beginning of the year and I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful breathing program. Not only have I lost weight and inches thanks to Oxycise!, but I have given my children the best gift I could….ME!!!
“I was so tired all the time, stressed out and felt ‘weighed’ down. As soon as I started Oxycising I felt the difference, probably in the same day. Oxycise! gives me a great boost of energy in the mornings and really lifts my spirits.
“I can take a few Oxycise! breaths while I’m feeling stressed and it helps clear my mind. I’m able to tolerate my toddlers better, I find that I have more patience with them and they deserve that.
“Of course, having the weight come off is definitely a plus! To date, by just Oxycising and changing my eating habits to incorporate lots of fresh foods I have lost over 25 lbs. and over 20 inches!!! That has definitely given a big boost to my self esteem and overall health.
“My sons and I say Thank You, Jill Johnson!!!”
My energy is up, my appetite is less, I’m sleeping better, and I just FEEL better
“I’m totally new to this method, but already — within just a couple of days of breathing correctly (the Oxycise! way), my energy is up, my appetite is less (no real cravings, that is), I’m sleeping better, and I just FEEL better.
“…I’ve been stuck at the same weight and size for three years now, and I can’t wait to get this little 5′ 4” frame back into a size 10 instead of a size 14-16. I’m very impressed with Oxycise! and feel confident I’ll see results.
“Thanks for a great product!”
It’s been an emotional roller coaster until I found your program.
“I am a professional, single woman who does not have a lot of time for exercising. Plus, it’s not like I’m very out of shape or overweight. Some people look at me and say, ‘You are so small, what do you have to worry about?’ But, with my age and height (5′ ½”) I have to to work on keeping in shape. Almost everyone I know does. Your program has still made a difference for me. My energy level has greatly increased since I’ve started your program, plus my abs are really starting to tone up through your breathing technique. It’s great!
“As I wrote to you a couple of weeks ago, I’m 34 and in fairly good shape with about 10 pounds to lose. I was using ‘the other’ breathing program with no real results. But, after starting your program and getting your level two and the books, I’m starting to see a difference in my clothing and flexibility. I used to teach in a health club and work in diet centers- I understand the ups and downs of weight gain and loss. It’s very frustrating. Personally, I have all the equipment, ‘fat loss’ pills, and exercise tapes to prove my quest for remaining trim. The $$ I’ve spent on this quest to be thin is unbelievable! It’s been an emotional roller coaster until I found your program.
“Since I have started your program, I have bought your product and sent it to people as gifts. I have loaned my videos out to friends and family. Keep up the great job! In a nut shell, Oxycise! has done the following for me: increased my energy level and flexibility, my cellulite is improving, my abs are tighter, and my waist is smaller. And, I’ve only just begun!! Thanks so much, Jill!”
Oxycise! has changed my life!!
“I saw you on QVC and thought — what the heck — who doesn’t have 15 minutes and the cost was nominal.
“Well, Oxycise! has changed my life!!
“My daughter was getting married and although I had over 18 months to lose the 50 pounds I was still overweight. I used pills (I hate to admit it Phen-Phen) and lost nothing but my short term memory. I bought over the counter diet drugs to help me, I went on low fat/high carbos; whatever — nothing helped. I tried on dresses (it was a black tie affair) and nothing in size 16 fit. I was ‘freaking out!’
“I got your program about 4 weeks before March 19th. I started on February 17th. I went to try on dresses again on February 18th and found one I liked. It was a little tight. By the wedding, I was down to a size 14 (I just turned 51 and that’s not easy to achieve) and the dress fit perfectly. I no longer hate to go try on clothes. Everyone at work as well as my husband and my family say I am starting to look like my old self.
“I exercise every morning. I feel better, have more energy and I look so much better! I have lost 3 inches from each thigh! My arms are finally getting firmer! My waist and back are firming up and the cellulite on my thighs is fading…
“Thanks Jill! You have made me feel good about myself again.”
I could never lose weight as fast and as easy as I am with Oxycise!
“I have been dieting off and on since I was in high school. A friend of mine introduced me to Oxycise! I started out doing it here and there and saw results. I got excited!!!
“I have just recently started Oxycising everyday, and I am already receiving great results. I have lost 7 pounds and 7-3/4 inches. My goal is to lose another 29 pounds (my weight when I got married), and to get into a pair of Guess jean shorts that I once wore when my husband and I were dating. I know with Oxycise! I WILL achieve my results. Also, I am to be a bridesmaid in my brother’s wedding next month – I can’t wait to see what I will look like in another three weeks!
“I am a very ‘all-natural’ person. I own an alternative healthcare company, sleep on a magnetic bed/pillow, wear magnets in my shoes, only take herbs and vitamins (no over-the-counter or prescription drugs), and watch the ingredients in everything that I eat. My children also follow my lead in all of these areas. Still though, I could never lose weight as fast and as easy as I am with Oxycise! When I friend of mine told me about Oxycise!, I was extremely interested due to the fact that it truly was ALL NATURAL. You can’t get more natural than breathing! The concept totally made sense to me. Also, I thought to myself, if you can’t exercise for just 15 minutes a day that is pretty sad! So, everyday, I religiously do my Oxycise! when my children take their 11 A.M. nap. Afterwards, I have so much energy and feel GREAT.
“I have told my family, all of my friends and many of my business clients about Oxycise! They are now, of course, seeing the results that I have had in just a short period of time. Two of my friends and I get together once a week to Oxycise! while our children play. Then, of course, we each do our own daily Oxycising also.
“As you can tell, I just can’t say enough about how great Oxycise! truly is…. Thank you Jill for discovering my ‘all-natural’ solution for a long-time battle with my weight. You truly have made a difference in this world.”
“My current stats are that I have lost 10 lbs and 24 inches – pretty cool, huh!!! I am SO excited. We leave for my brother’s wedding this week, and I have to say that I look pretty good in the bridesmaid dress. I had to have major alterations to take in the dress – WAY to big!!! Although I didn’t like spending $50 on alterations, I was really excited that the dress was too big!!! I have also lost 2 (almost 3) dress sizes! I was wearing size 18 jeans after I had my daughter and now my size 14 jeans are getting big. I was able to zip up my size 12 shorts today although they are still a little tight. My goal is to get back into my size 8 clothes. Thanks for caring and asking me about my current results – it really means a lot to me. :)”
I can’t shop at the plus sized stores any more!
“I am happy to report that I have lost about 45 lbs. and almost 30 inches since June and have gone from a size 24 to about a 14. Also, I had suffered from depression and was going to schedule an appointment with my doctor to be put on antidepressants, but since Oxycising, I have not suffered from the symptoms of depression that plagued me for over 15 years.
“My family and friends have all commented to me that I am a completely different person now, and I know that Oxycise is a big part of that change! Several of my Oxycising friends and I have even noticed that our PMS symptoms have virtually disappeared as a result of using the tapes! (I know the men in our lives thank you for that!)
“As a professional singer, it has even improved my singing. I am experiencing more breath control and can sustain notes much longer than I could before. I encourage all of my voice students to purchase the tapes as a way to increase their lung capacity and to tone up their abdominal muscles (which get used a lot in singing). I want to send a great big thanks to everyone at Oxycise! for providing such a wonderful, natural way to lose weight and feel better about yourself. Keep up the great work!”

Kathy’s Latest Results: 75 Pounds, 40 Inches!
“It’s been a while since I’ve written in with my results and I wanted to give you an update. Since I started Oxycising in June of last year I have lost about 75 pounds and 40 inches. It is amazing how much more energy I have! Almost everyday people comment to me on how much weight I’ve lost. I look and feel like a totally different person!
“I still have about 50 pounds to go to reach my goal, but it is so encouraging to me to know that I’m more than halfway there. I couldn’t even imagine being as far as I am now, if it were not for Oxycise! And best of all, I can’t shop at the plus sized stores any more because all of their clothes are too big on me! I love being able to shop almost anywhere!”
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 love life again, and I can’t remember being so in love with life as I am now
“I’ve been meaning to e-mail you, but I wanted to be sure of what I was seeing before I did! Believe it or not, I’m losing a pound a day, and I promise you, I AM NOT STARVING MYSELF!
“I’d be lying if I told you that the first day was a piece of cake, but in addition to my regular Oxycise!, I added 20 minutes of aerobic dancing…that worked great in the blood sugar control department. (Keep in mind, the experts say you have to keep up aerobic exercise for at least 45 minutes to reap benefits). I did that with my Oxycise for a few days, and then I thought, ‘OK, I know the promises of Oxycise!: let’s put it to the test.’ I dropped the 20 minutes of aerobic dancing and have been doing Oxycise! exclusively…the results are the same…so far, 2 inches are off the waist, an inch off the hips, the scale is down 5 pounds. My husband is so impressed with my change in attitude.
“Well, since I started Oxycise!, the change has been dramatic — and that’s an understatement! The little things that used to just wreck my day don’t even bother me now! I feel hopeful — healthy — fulfilled in my role…and placid…which leads me to tell you, you REALLY ought to tie into the mental health community with this one in your clinical studies. As a former nursing student, I can tell you that psychiatric patients are taught deep breathing…but not like this!
“I’m thrilled out of my mind with this — I just can’t tell you. I have tried so hard to take off the thirty pounds I gained since Mara was born. I’ve tried the healthy ways — and the not so healthy. . . . INCREDIBLE is all I can say! Looking forward to hearing from you. God Bless You.”
Update from Lesleigh – Size 16 to 12
“I still think it’s too good to be true, but the proof is in the pudding. My question is for you, how is this possible that I’ve gone down from a size 16 to a size 12, and I’m losing inches, yet the scale has only come down 6 pounds? (I’m not complaining at all, but my past experience has been that even with exercise, I had to lose 10 pounds before I went down a size). By the way, I was thinking,’OK, these are designer pants, and designers tend to cut larger because we American women don’t want to face the truth of how fat we really are.’ Well, I went to a department store and tried on clothes ( I need a new outfit for a party on Sunday) and across the board, I’m wearing size 12, albeit some of the items were a tad snug. Oh, how wonderful it is to shop again!”
Love and Hugs,
Another update – Oxycise! as a Mood Lifter and Immune System Booster
“I have been using Oxycise! for seven weeks and to date, have lost 11 pounds and 10 ¼ inches! I have tried conventional aerobic exercise and dieting, and got absolutely nowhere. I take medication to control my heart rhythm, but I tire out before I really get into an aerobic range…not with Oxycise! I get into an aerobic zone immediately…but the benefits haven’t stopped at weight loss…I simply don’t recall a time in my life where I felt this good, for this long…and I was one of those people that would literally wake up in the morning, wishing the day would end. I feel alert and awake and creative. I find that little things don’t bother me anymore …I’m so much calmer, and I deal with the problems of everyday life so much better. If you don’t use this program for weight loss, then use it because it will lift your mood, and give you a true sense of well-being.
“I have even found that using Oxycise! during respiratory illnesses – colds or allergies seems to shorten the duration of the problem! PMS has vanished. . . In leading an Oxycise! lifestyle, my skin looks fabulous.
“I have given this program to my friends as gifts: I feel it is so vital, and has changed my life so drastically. I love life again, and I can’t remember being so in love with life as I am now. Who would think that deep breathing for 15 minutes a day could have such a profound effect on a person?”
I have lost 33 lbs. and 11 inches in one month!
“Like many of you, I’ve struggled with my weight since I can remember. I’ve tried shakes, fad diets, starvation, vomiting, weight loss clinics, exercise programs, low fat, high carb, high protein, and many diet pills including prescription appetite suppressants only to either lose then gain back or gain more out of frustration. I’ve always been obsessed about my weight and constantly on the lookout for some new miracle for weight loss. I have virtually NO WILL POWER and absolutely NO PATIENCE. I want results yesterday or I’ll quit.
“After giving birth to my son, I couldn’t bear to look at myself in the mirror. At 5’2″ I weighed a whopping 226 lbs. – the most I have ever weighed in my life! I knew that something had to be done. There was no way I was going to be a plus size for the rest of my life. My mother loaned me her Oxycise! videos (they were still unopened in the box), and I began a program that has virtually changed my life. Keep in mind that I detest exercise – but I have done O! at least once a day and sometimes twice a day at least 5 days a week. I created my own weight loss chart on my computer complete with my goal weight and inch loss. I have been measuring every 2 weeks and have had amazing results! I have lost 33 lbs. and 11 inches in one month! I didn’t realize what 11 inches lost looked like until I looked at pictures of myself taken a month ago. What a difference! I have more energy despite the sleep deprivation that comes with a newborn. I have more flexibility, and I can tell that my muscles are more toned even under all that fat. I still have 50lbs. to lose before I reach my pre-pregnancy weight, and I want to lose an additional 20. Whatever you do, don’t give up! Have you read all of those success stories? I have – that’s what keeps me motivated. Hundreds of people have lost inches and pounds with O! How many other programs have you tried that have that many successful customers? Besides, who can’t spare 15 minutes a day? You’ll be 15 minutes closer to being able to fit into those size sixes!”
In a separate note, Cece added:
“Just measured two days ago and couldn’t believe it. I thought that I had measured incorrectly until I got my pictures back from the developers. There was a picture of me taken from the side holding my little boy and I was HUGE! My stomach, buns, and thighs are considerably smaller now. I had no idea how big a difference 11 inches can make…All I had to go by was the measuring tape until I saw that picture. Even my husband noticed the difference! I want to thank you for your breathing techniques – it makes all the difference in the world. Once you get the breathing right the inches just come right off!”
I have started to get comments about the way I look
“Hello Jill, Julie and the Oxycise! world,
“I must admit I have had the Oxycise! tapes for about 2 years and after my wife left I realized that I must do something for myself. So on June 28th I made a pledge that I would try Oxycise! for 33 days in a row and today I am at day 30. I thought I’d share although I haven’t reached my goal, yet I am now on my way.
“I have started to get comments about the way I look from my wife and the people I meet. I have no idea if Oxycise! has anything to do with it but I will not stop to find out. I do not have a scale but I know I have lost weight because my stomach doesn’t hurt anymore when I button my pants.
“I have a goal to lose 3 inches off my waist by end of August. I started at 40 waist and would like to get it to 37 in 30 or so days…
“I am so energized. I am even changing the way I think, phew !!! Wow!!!”
“Thanks a mil.”
I have steadily observed results
“I ordered Oxycise! a few months ago and have steadily observed results. I don’t take weight measurements or tape measurements or do any statistical records. Instead I just do it and make sure that I am doing it properly by judging how my body responds while doing O! I am seeing that my abs and pecs have become tighter and toned and that I have increased energy. The tension I feel in my head (from stress) is reduced. My forehead, shoulders and lower back feel a lot more easy because I am more relaxed (they are not as tense).”
My daughter is excited to have a grandpa who will race her around the park
“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know about the success my father has had with Oxycise!
“My father is 52 years old and has been about 120 lbs overweight for most of his adult life. This year for his birthday I ordered Oxycise! for him. His birthday was in January and as of yesterday he is wearing a 34 inch pant!!! He refuses to weigh but I know the last pair of pants I bought him were a 42”. I am amazed at his increased energy. He looks great and my daughter is excited to have a grandpa who will race her around the park now.
“Thank you for Oxycise! I am starting it today and will let you know how I do. I wish I had started in January with Dad. I’m sure my extra 30 lbs would already be gone. I’ll keep you posted on our progress.”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
I never cease to be amazed at the results
“I am a seventy year old male, and would like to express my thanks for the Oxycise! program.
“I am now working on Level Three of the ‘Easy Does It’ part of the program. I have been ‘breathing’ since December of ’02, and have lost thirty pounds, and many, many inches.
“Not only have I lost many inches and pounds, I feel much better, and my blood pressure has dropped from several points high, to almost normal.
“Every one at my church has asked me about the weight loss program. I have recommended your program highly. You should be receiving several request and orders from zip code 37122 very soon.
“I will be watching for the newsletter every week.”
Another happy breather,
Mt. Juliet, TN
Update for John:
“Just wanted to keep in touch, and let you know that I am still breathing. I never cease to be amazed at the results that I am getting from your program. I have not only lost weight, I feel great, and have more energy. On top of that, my doctor has lowered my blood medication from 10mg to 5mg with a possibility of not having to take any at all.
“Thank God for Jill!”
Your Oxycise! system is truly amazing
“I must say your Oxycise! system is truly amazing. I can’t believe you only sell it for $30.00! I started about 6 weeks ago and have already lost 2 inches off my waist. All of my clothes fit better and I have a ton of energy.”
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.”
My abs have never been stronger
“Hi… my wife and I just started the level 1 program a couple weeks ago and my abs have never been stronger. We judge weight loss by percentage of body fat and in a couple weeks we’ll be getting that checked. Man . . .I was tired, about ready to take a nap, did the program, and felt wide awake; Fascinating. Thanks for giving my wife and me hope for healthy toned bodies.”
Fresh and energized
“I have been doing Oxycise! off and on, but have still seen my body tone up. I also feel fresh and energized afterwards. Thank you, Jill, for making my life easier.”
I am REALLY amazed
“…I must admit I am REALLY amazed at how efficient this program is. Being a scientist-at-heart, we must always rely on facts, etc., and I knew the importance of breathing in both longevity of life as well as the sports areas (which was my immediate concern for investigating the program). My stomach is firming up, and I am starting to lose the fat 🙂
“As a sidebar, increased energy, better moods, and overall better disposition on life is probably an intangible asset to Oxycising that most people may or may not realize.
“Once again, thanks for everything and I will look out for level 3.”
No diet for me, never again.
“Well, where to start? Around my 34th birthday my kidney decided to quit. After six years of suffering, I received a kidney from my sister, Florence, and started my road to recovery. My weight went down as the years passed, but I could never get my energy back or the fat off my middle. But this May of 2000, my wife and I were watching the program on TV and I called about ordering the program. May 23rd was the day I started the Oxycise! breathing program. I started with the basic positions, doing 30 reps a day for 30 days. It took me a week to understand the breathing technique, but once I got it my energy went through the roof. I have been waiting 14 years for my energy to come back; It seems that breathing has done the trick. Oh, by the way, I have lost four inches off my chest, one inch off my belly, and two and a half inches off my belt line. Lost ten pounds in 5 1/2 months. No diet for me, never again. My thought is: ‘Breathe to Live’….”
We have never seen the immediate results that Oxycise! has offered
“We would like to compliment you on your exercise program, Oxycise! Charles has been doing the program for 3 weeks and has lost 15 pounds. He lost 2″ off his midsection, 1″ off his waist, and one-half inch off his thighs. Jackie has been doing the program for 1 week and has lost 3 pounds. She has lost 2″ off her mid-section; 1″ off her hips; and 1” off her thighs.
“We have done walking and aerobic exercises for years, but have never seen the immediate results that Oxycise! has offered. The results have never been as dramatic either. The best thing about your program is the added energy that we feel. What a lift! Keep up the good work!”
I lost weight and started looking better and feeling better
“I have to credit a psychic for my start in Oxycise. I went to get a reading and she said I needed more oxygen. I thought that was odd and I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it or what to do about it. As synchronicity would have it, right after that I saw an Oxycise infomercial and realized that was what I needed to do to get more oxygen. If I hadn’t had that reading I might not have paid any attention to it. This was somewhere around 98/99. I started doing Oxycise and lost weight and started looking better and feeling better.
“I have done it for so long that I have permanent level 1 hand prints on the wall! I stopped for awhile at some point but then I remembered how good I felt when I did it and started again. I added some levels and other tapes to my collection for variety. Level 1 is still my favorite. Other than a period of Pilates, I have used Oxycise and walking as my main form of exercise with occasional yoga thrown in.
“Oxycise helped me want to eat better and when I did it I had more energy and felt better, which helped my whole life in general. I definitely lost weight and tightened up. I was so happy with Oxycise that I actually volunteered to be on an Oxycise Infomercial back then. What I can tell you is that since I do Oxycise regularly my weight has only vacillated by a few pounds in winter over the years.
“Also, I wanted to mention that there are some days that I absolutely hate exercising and I really don’t want to do it, but I can always talk myself into 15 minutes. This is something that is so crucial to the wonderfulness of Oxycise and why it has been with me so many years. I actually do it! Other things have fallen by the wayside, but Oxycise sticks with me. It isn’t overly strenuous. I don’t get too sweaty. I know I am going to feel great afterwards. I can stay in shape and get great benefits that other programs take lots of time to achieve and it only takes 15 minutes. Thank you for that!
“Most people I meet never believe that I am over 50. My body is not perfect and never has been, but I can consistently feel comfortable in my body and good in my clothes and that is what matters most to me.
“Thank you for Oxycise!!”
Oxycise brought QUALITY of life and health, and emotional wellness back to me
Hi, I just wanted to say in 1996, after my Dad died, I suffered from bad anxiety attacks for 3 years on and off, my Dad died of bone cancer, in a quick five months he was gone, the images of his suffering affected me, I saw Jill s infomercial and heard Oxycise is good for anxiety and stress, so I ordered….. Level one VHS Tapes,It did WONDERS for my anxiety attacks, vertigo, and insomia…it ll be 18 year tommorrow December 30th….that my Dad passed away,,,, I still do Jills tape now transfered to a CD, about 3 to 4 times per week for stress, tiredness,and for ENERGY….. As for weightloss which I was NOT seeking, I lost 31 lbs…..over the years….So you see my Oxycise friends and NEWBIES….. oxycise Level One…. brought QUALITY of life and health, and emotionally wellness back to me. God Bless Jill and now her Daughter for bringing us Oxycise….THE POWER OF OXYGEN!!! And still today….when I get tired I get light headed, like around this Christmas season….rushing and running around…. I go back to my work outs to give me my energy and balance, 2 workouts the fatigue and dizzyness passes. I LOVE MY OXYCISE TIME…. Forget weightloss the health benefits are HUGE…..
So much better than going to the gym
I just took my two Oxycise Dvd’s with Aubrey out last night and I am starting on them today. I don’t know why I stopped because I was seeing results and feeling so much better and I was losing inches. Not so tired. I have a lot of weight to lose and I am back on my journey. So much better than going to the gym and I see results quicker. So much better for my asthma as well.
It is truly unbelievable!!!
In 2 months’ time I have lost 9″ and the sort of haggard look that was reflected in my mirror is also gone! I do the exercises every day and will definitely continue because the benefits and rewards are so great. Weight-wise I haven’t lost much, but that isn’t important to me, as long as I see something (whether it is the scale or the tape measure) for my efforts. As a woman in the throes of menopause, weight reduction is very difficult. So when I see the numbers go down, I am ecstatic, to say the least! Jill’s program is the best. It’s easy and I absolutely love the short amount of time it takes to complete the series of exercises. Afterwards, I feel rejuvenated and renewed and ready to attack the day. Previously, I must have walked from the moon and back with no results—rolled myself in exhausting and time-consuming positions with no results—and now, with just 15 or so minutes a day–the results are IN!! It is truly unbelievable!!! Another great part is the fact that I am not forgotten. By buying the videos, I became a customer but with the wonderful support I have received, and the motivating feed-back, I have become a friend. Please continue to e-mail me the up-dates….Many thanks for your prompt attention to letters and wonderful network of support.
I only did the breathing exercises laying down on my bed
I love Oxycise.
What I’m going to say though is going through the exercise, looking at it, and how it’s presented- does appear tedious and silly. But do not let appearances deceive you. Put your all into in and the effects are amazing. You will not be disappointed. Many people make the mistake of thinking that exercises should be exciting and that if they are not – they are useless. When they do that – they pass up gems like this video that explains everything and that anyone can do. I’m so lazy I only did the breathing exercises laying down on my bed and yes I do hate exercising.
I’m not a very disciplined person. But for my health, I’m going to try again. Yes I have used oxycise before. And though I didn’t feel (bodywise) the effects was having on my body. It did work. At the end of the first month I lost 4 inches in my waist. I couldn’t believe it. It wasn’t a mistake. I’m very meticulous when it comes to measuring for things like that. I did it 4 times before I started. I was always tire d and runned down and I couldn’t walk over the hills effectively while on my way to work. The older people were passing me by at full speed and I was embarrassed. I bought oxycise and immediately I felt the difference. I was no longer huffing and puffing over those hills, and I could actually run for the bus and get it. I didn’t feel any difference, But the end of the month revealed a lot. I had lost a lot of inches all over my body including what I mentioned earlier in this review and I felt a lot better in fact I’m going to start doing it again. But I want it to be a life-long change. My goal is 133 pounds. I have over 2 months off from work for vacation and I plan to use it wisely.
IT REALLY WORKS
I have been using the oxycise system for two years, and guess what IT REALLY WORKS. In just 15 minutes a day you can have the trim body that you have been looking for. I lost about 35 inches using this program and also by watching what I eat. I feel so energized and terrific when I do this program daily. Level 3 is my personal favorite.
For the first time in over a decade, I am totally and utterly medication free.
Hi Jill, at last I managed to get around to sending you this e-mail. I started the Oxycise! program on June 7, and what I have achieved has been beyond my expectations.
I came across Oxycise! purely by accident, doing a search on the internet for something else and decided to give it a try. At that time my energy level was very low and I was suffering from prolonged depression, severe migraines and could not sleep well. I do have some weight to lose as well (roughly 25 lb), but that was not my primary objective.
Well to cut a long story short, for the first time in over a decade, I am totally and utterly medication free. I have not had any migraines for over two months. I used to get at least one very bad one every week and sometimes two, and constant nagging headaches. I have kissed my Prozac good bye and have not taken any sleeping pills during this period. I cannot begin to express how wonderful it feels to be free of all those endless pills and have so much energy. And anytime if I have problems sleeping I do the Torpedo exercises without the arm part and that takes away any residue stress I might have and soon I fall sleep. It is just incredible to wake up and feel fresh. I used to find it so depressing that I was tired all the time and even used to get up feeling tired!!!
I have a very busy lifestyle. I am 43 years old and have a full time job, plus my business, so really there is not much spare time, but I was amazed how easy it was to incorporate the deep breathing into my heavy work days. Even during some boring business meetings I very discreetly time my breathing and try to aim at 4 deep breaths per minute, but I must admit I won’t do the smiles, sniffs and puffs!!!
And by the way, I have also lost 5 inches from my waist, two inches from my hip and 2 inches from my thighs. The weight loss has not been spectacular, but I think 7 pounds is pretty respectable. All these in my view are added bonuses.
Oxycise! is going to be the permanent part of my lifestyle no matter if I lose any more weight or not. And I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for putting me in touch with my body. I have learned how to listen to my body and respond to its needs.
I have not followed everything you have suggested 100%; just adapted the ones which I would be comfortable with. I still eat meat, but far fewer times and only lean chicken, but red meat only once a month. You can use my letter in any shape or form you wish, my medical records speak for themselves.
Thanks again for your guidance and encouragement.
Best money I ever paid for a workout program.
“Hey what a surprise, I lost 2 lbs this morning when I stepped on the scale. This program sure makes me feel good. I never leave home for work without doing the 15 minute workout. I am 67 years old and feel like I am 45 years old now with a lot of energy. Can you do the workout twice a day? Best money I ever paid for a workout program. Thanks Again.”
