Hypoxi is the process of targeted body shaping. Created by Dr. Norbert Egger of Austria, the patented process is more than just exercise. It combines exercise with vacuum pressure to increase the circulation to the area where the troublesome fatty deposits are located. There are four machines used in the Hypoxi process. The Trainer S120 for slimmer legs, the Trainer L250 for slimmer legs, the Vacunaut for a flat stomach and the Hypoxi Dermology for firmer skin.

Ingredients

The only ingredients in the Hypoxi process are exercise and vacuum pressure. The training machines developed by Dr. Egger combine vacuum suction with exercise to increase the circulation to the area being worked. The idea is that fatty deposits build in areas with less than optimal circulation and by increasing that circulation during exercise, the body will naturally trim the fat from the area that is isolated by the suction.

Product Features

Trainer S120 – The Hypoxi Trainer S120 is used to target the legs, glutes and hips. Three forces are used to isolate the fat in these areas. There is low pressure suction, high pressure compression and exercise tailored to the individual.

Trainer L250 – The Hypoxi Trainer L250 targets the legs and glutes from a totally different angle. This machine uses vacuum pressure combines with cycling exercise to target fatty deposits.

Vacunaut – The Hypoxi Vacunaut is a state of the art, almost sci-fi looking device aimed at reducing hip and abdominal fat. The constrictive waist and hip band combines low pressure suction, high pressure compression and exercise to target area specific fat deposits.

Hypoxi Dermology – The Hypoxi Dermology machine is all about having firmer skin. Again the machine uses low pressure suction and high compression to firm the skin of the entire body.

    I hate exercise, no gym, no cross training. For me, i would say ALL exercise make me to feel muscle pain.

    My first Hypoxi session is recommend by my local GP. She said i would need to start some blood circulation exercise.

    For me,it really easy for me to do Hypoxi compare to Gym exercise. I would prefer this 30 mins easy exercise where it help with my health.

    After 12 sessions, i lose 30 cms from my lower bottom body

    i think Hypoxi really suit to ppl that not actively exercise.

    I have been to hypoxi and am loving it my weight was 109 when I started and it is now 98 . It would have been allot more except I would forget the rule of no cabs for 6hrs after,I would suggest to you all, who have had no results that you’ve probably have done the same as I did , Hypoxi keeps working for those hrs after you stop the machines and if you don’t follow the recommendations you will lose none or very little,as I have found out to my cost .Hypoxi is great if you follow the plan. to all you doughters I suggest you try again but this time follow the rules. And NO I don’t work for Hypoxi

    Hypoxi was excellent for me, I only ended up being able to complete 10 x sessions as I lost my drivers licence and couldn’t get to the studio anymore, after only 10 sessions though I lost 28cms over my lower body, reduced my cellulite and felt comfortable and ready for summer.
    I have to disagree with comments above saying it doesn’t work…if you just cycled 3x a week and ate well…you would lose weight anyway wouldn’t you?? so to say that you lost aboslutely nothing through HYPOXI seems a bit backwards. I was excercising 3x a week before HYPOXI and was only seeing tiny results…HYPOXI is excellent!

    While I’m not overweight ( i used to be), I am a bit pear shaped and have stubborn cellulite in my thighs that no amount of exercising- cardio and/or toning has ever been able to shift. I lead an active life and generally eat well.
    I had 12 sessions over 5 weeks, and followed the eating directions after treatment each time, and there was absolutely no change in my measurements, or cellulite appearance. The staff were lovely, however I can say it was a total waste of money.

    biggest waste of money. There is no monitoring of weight or measurements once they have your money. It cannot work as it is not a continuous treatment. hatever gain will sonn be lost.

    I love HYPOXI… I do the HDC & L250 Combination for DETOX and firming my bottom, legs and to loose my tummy! It 100% works! @ $69.00 per session it is an investment to a HOT Summer Body :)

    I will never recommend this place..
    After 16 sessions and strict diet.. I didn’t have any improvements in my body. My weight is 134lbs… Very dissapoited process. I was offer maintenance session at discounted price. This incentive was not honored. Really misleading and bad customer service.

    Awful waste of money… makes no difference whatsoever. The staff at my centre (Bushey) were rude and unpleasant. After 6 sessions I didnt even have a mm difference in measurements. Dont waste your money!!!!!!
    Really think all the positive reviews have been written by people who work for hypoxi…

    I am a Hypoxi client and can vouch for its benefits and results.
    I went from a size 12 to a size 8 in 18 sessions (3 x week for 6 weeks).
    I had a very good diet in this time following the recommended nutritional guidelines as provided upon joining.
    I am into my next block of 18 sessions after a break of 2 months and have not seen the same results. The overwhelming difference is MY DIET. I am not following the nutritional guidelines at all and am hence seeing no results.
    I have always exercised; gym, cardio, weights, pilates, organised team sports, tennis and whether i was strict with my diet while exercising through these avenues, truely trying to lose weight, i never saw the results I experienced while eating healthily and doing 90 minutes of Hypoxi a week.
    The people that say it doesn’t work, please be honest with those people that are genuinely interested in hearing the facts, and explain that your poor eating habits were the reason you saw no results. A negative attitude probably had a lot to do with it too, but diet let you down, not Hypoxi.

    Yeah well, I did the same diet as my friend who was using the Hypoxi for 6 wks and for increasing my excersize I ran up the 2 flights of stairs to my office instead of taking the lift and guess what…..I lost pounds and double the inch loss she had….but she lost her money :(

    So I finished my 4th Hypoxi session this afternoon on the Vacunaut machine which focuses on your stomach. I don’t think I mentioned in my last post how much you sweat during these sessions. You’re working out on an eliptical machine for 30 minutes while sucked into an air tight scuba-style suit. There is definitely some work involved at these sessions. My measurements were carefully redone using the laser levels to ensure they were taken in the exact same spots. Drum roll…and I lost a total of 4.52 inches (11.5 cm). I only lost .1 lb. (.05 kg.)but I attribute that to eating breakfast every day…something I never used to do until I learned this is definitely affecting my metabolism and likely affecting my overall ability to lose weight. Hopefully my metabolism with work itself out but I think Hypoxi works to lose inches in the specific places you choose the machines to target. I’ve booked another 8 sessions to complete a full 12 week program that they like you to have. I’m so glad they offered the 4 week trial for under $50 because I might not otherwise have committed to giving it a shot. My next 8 sessions will take place over the next 2 1/2 weeks (3 per week) so again I will report back with my overall results of a 12 session program that most people buy.

    Don’t bother. I did it and got no results and i am fit and healthy but have big thighs so I followed it strictly as I so wanted it to work. Go for a run – better results and no cost!

    I live in Ontario, Canada and I got a great deal (coupon) for 4 sessions so I couldn’t resist giving it a go for about $50. God knows I’ve spent way more on other crap. I could stand to lose an overall 20lbs but would be happy with 10 lbs. Ever since I turned 40, I’ve had no luck with weight loss whatsoever (5 years now). I’ve been exercising regulary for quite a while and eat fairly well. But my weight, as always, goes up and down by 2 lbs only. So I’ve had my second Hypoxi session on the Vacunaut to focus on my stomach as it’s my biggest concern. They did very extensive measurements on me before I started, using laser levels, etc. for accuracy on follow-up measurements. I’ll have finished my 4 trial sessions in a few days and will definitely save this site so I can report back VERY HONESTLY. As much as I’m hopeful, I’m also skeptical because nothing else I’ve tried has worked.
    While I was at my first session the other day, a woman was just finishing her last session (I think she went for 12 overall). I got chatting with her and learned she was a pharmacist. She said she researched the process and decided to try it because it made sound physiological sense. Anyhow, I was finishing up my session as she had her final measurements done and she lost 8 inches. I was there and saw her printout so it was no lie. This is giving me some hope but I have to see my own results to continue beyond my 4 trial sessions. I’ll let you know my results on what 4 sessions did for me in a few days.

    Complete rubbish. I am thin anyway but have about half a stone that I need to loose. On the website they had an example of a girl smaller than me that it worked for. I did everything they said and I lost NOTHING. and to top it off they won’t give me my money back!!!!! £475 down the drain.

    I have had 12 sessions so far and have seen amazing results. I am generally overweight but went because I gain and lose a lot of weight fast and my skin is starting to sag a little and I am now noticing cellulite and wanted that fixed. I can say I see huge improvements in my butt and thighs, they are smoother and smaller, more defined (butt is higher!) but I still have cellulite. If you have surface cellulite it goes fast but deeper cellulite requires more work. I will go for another 12 sessions on the L250 then I will try the tummy one. If you have doubts I encourage you to go to the studio and enquire if they offer a free session (they do in Australia) and try it for yourself. It is proven that vacuum therapy works. Definitely try it. I like the idea that I am exercising as well. I hope to get even better results after another 12 sessions! I wish they would make something for my tuckshop arms!! :(

    Dont waste your time or your money. I did and had NO results, none at all. I wanted to lose the last 3-5 kg and get rid of my tummy and celulite. I wouldn’t be supprised if the positive comments on here are from the people who run the place.

    [Reply]

    Sydneygirl

    I find that surprising. How many sessions did you have? Did you follow the no carb, no caffeine rule for 6 hours post session? Did you drink lots of water? For 12 sessions people see amazing results, heck after 2 I saw incredible results. Something isn’t right if you saw NO results.

    I did Hypoxi in Sydney, Australia whilst on a 5 week holiday before I head back to the US. I am originally from NY, USA and would love to bring it back with me!!
    I lost 35cms over my stomach, hips, bum and thighs. I am a healthy eater already and run alot. I am quite small framed but had the same misfortune as a lot of women!

    I would definately recommend Hypoxi to those wanting to kick start their regime. It’s not for the faint hearted / quick fixes. You work out, you sweat = you get results.

    Reading Suzy (20th Nov) comment doesnt make sense. If you were exercising 3 times a week for 6 weeks even if it was just cycling you should notice results. Hypoxi works- I am a testiment to that fact. Clearly it’s poor diet. You can’t blame Hypoxi for your poor food choices.

    I travel a lot to Aus & and the UK and ensure I pre-book some top up sessions when I go. I love it!

    I did Hypoxi for 3 months in Orlando Fl and the results were amazing. I lost 28 inches and 15 lbs and have kept them off! After your initial sessions you can sign up for a maintenance program which is wonderful to keep you on track. Try them in Orlando FL They were very acomodating.

    I have just completed 18 sessions of Hypoxi – they gave me four extra sessions after my measurements showed barely any changes. My measurements today showed some minor reductions but not even close to the claims I have seen from other ‘testimonials’. I also changed my diet quite dramatically over the last week )ie between the two measurements), so I would attribute any changes to that rather than Hypoxi. The whole process was a complete waste of time.

    I was very skeptical about Hypoxi too – but decided to give it a try after my girlfriend tried it in Australia and dropped a whole dress size in 6 weeks. I am only 68kg, but have had stubborn fat on my thighs since having children which I could not lose doing standard diet and exercise. After 18 sessions, I lost 15 cm from my hips and 11cm from my thighs! I have moved to Florida and want to know if Hypoxi is in the States yet?

    load of crap, I would never endorse this product, they have just taken any old names and put their own BS to someones name.

    I’m confused, you do like the product or you don’t? February 2010 you loved it, is there a difference in your view now because the weight or inches came back? Just asking because Im thinking of starting the process.

    Kym Whitford

    I’ve never used this product, never will. I didnt write that review, someone else (probably from the company) wrote it and put my name to it. I cant see it being a good product if they have to falsify reviews.

    Kimmy

    Yeah, because there are NO other Kym Whitfords in the whole world! Duh!

    I tried Hypoxi when I first had a baby in 2007. Since having my 2nd child I’ve gone back for more. After 6 sessions I have lost 15cm around hips, bottom and thighs. Noticeable reduction in cellulite. I was never big to start with, approx 65kgs. After the first 12 session I lost around 40cms around stomach, hips, bum and thighs. After 12 session I am looking like i’v never had kids. I eat healthy anyway so this has given me that extra push. I would recommend it to anyone.
