Oxygen Fitness offers a range of options for you to improve your health, reach your personal goals & achieve a level of fitness that you feel serves you in all aspects of your life.
In Durango Co. we are privileged to have four beautiful sessions. In the summer, a workout may be an outdoor circuit along the river. This includes trail running/walking and boot camp-style workouts. In the winter, we mix up the gym routine with some cardio such as snowshoeing and/or cross-country skiing.
The nutritional aspect of holistic training I provide focuses on guiding clients in dietary refinement. This may include eating for their specific blood type or metabolic type, or even adhering to a gluten-free diet.
Oxygen Fitness provides a steam sauna and ozone therapy, which is an important part of any detoxification program.
You sit inside – with your head outside – of a steam sauna that has oxygenated air (O3) pumped into it. The sauna allows the steam to surround the body so that ozone permeates the skin. Research into ozone therapy suggests that it helps the body fight pathogenic bacteria and fungi, as well as viruses. Furthermore, ozone has been shown to stimulate oxygen metabolism and stimulate the kreb’s cycle.
However, safety is important. Ozone and fatty acids react in cell membranes to produce peroxides, thus more oxygen is released from hemoglobin, so healthy elimination mechanisms are necessary. The sauna works by using the hot steam to open the body’s pores, which increases the exchange potential between ambient gases and the body. The body’s detox process is stimulated, and activated oxygen reacts with the molecules with the highest oxidation potential. Thus, more sweat means greater excretion of toxic substances from the body. It is important to have your head outside of the sauna for ventilation because inhaling ozone can damage the lining of the lungs.
The sauna reduces the lactic acid in your muscles and builds the immune system, both of which are important for people who is working out consistently. The sauna is relaxing and will leave an overall feeling of rejuvenation.
Benefits of ozone sauna:
- Relaxes and loosens muscles by reducing the buildup of lactic acid and increasing muscle flexibility.
- Oxidizes toxins so they can be eliminated through the skin, lungs, kidneys and colon.
- Boosts blood circulation, helping injured muscles to repair quicker.
- Stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels relieving pain and speeding the healing process.
- Eliminates bacterial and viral infections of all kinds.
- Speeds up the metabolic processes of the inner organs and endocrine glands resulting in a loss of 200-450 calories in a 30-minute session.
Ozone Therapy is an effective treatment for:
- √ Detoxification programs
- √ Immune system deficiencies
- √ Pain management
- √ Heavy metal toxicity
- √ Arthritis
- √ Stress and muscle tension
- √ Increasing body metabolism
- √ Elimination of toxins

“The fundamental cause of all degenerative disease is hypoxia – oxygen starvation at the cellular level. Cancer and other degenerative disease cannot survive in an oxygen-rich environment.”
