Give me two minutes of your time and I’ll tell you whether Hypoxi actually works. We spent the time picking apart the side effects, ingredients, clinical research and quality of customer service. Furthermore, we dissected hundreds of user comments and feedback. Then, we digested and summarized to give you the info you need.

Hypoxi Readers: Click here to find out why we're giving away samples of our product, Leptigen.

What is Hypoxi?

First off, Hypoxi ingredients are essentially four machines: S120, L250, Hypoxi-Dermology and Vacunaut. [1] The program promotes weight-loss through compression and vacuum technology, as well as healthy eating. Supposedly you’ll burn three times more fat using this system, verses regular exercise. [2] Each session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes. One benefit is that some local centers offer a free trial.

Hypoxi was created in 1997 by Dr. Norbery Egger, but is currently operated by Ardent Leisure. The company operates clinics throughout the world. You can sign up for individual sessions, which cost about $69 or $684 for a training package. We like that the fitness plans are low-impact and that the company has been operating for years, but read on…

Hypoxi Side Effects – “Not Always Positive!”

The first concern we found after a quick search was Hypoxi side effects. “When you start a rather rigorous diet and exercise program, changes are to be expected,” said our Research Editor. “But, it could become problematic if the plan also causes adverse reactions.”

“I have had my first Hypoxi session this morning and from the start I felt mildly sick and very light headed,” commented a dieter. [3]

“I have been to 3 sessions and started having lower back issues,” stated another. [4]

Finding customers talking about Hypoxi side effects are rare. We did locate some dieters sharing their positive experiences. “My heart felt like it was racing, but it was just me pushing myself harder than the day before,” stated a customer. [5]

Lack of Results – “Long-Term Success?”

According to customer reviews, the lack of results with Hypoxi was a problem. “I am in the middle of my Hypoxi session. I’m not losing the inches were I want it to be lost. The suite for upper body does nothing for me,” said an individual.

“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,” commented a customer.

We searched the forums and found that some customers have seen come changes after following the Hypoxi program. “I have to disagree with comments above saying it doesn’t work. I lost inches over my lower body, reduced my cellulite and felt comfortable and ready for summer,” said a dieter.

“Hypoxi keeps working for those hrs. after you stop the machines,” stated another.

We’ve done the research and have found that when any part of a fitness program is thought of as a concern, like not helping you reach your goals, there’s a chance long-term success will be limited. You may want to think about your options if Hypoxi doesn’t help you lose weight.

The Science – “Backed by Research?”

When Hypoxi makes such big claims, especially about targeted fat loss, we want to know how. We followed the science and found that the company provided details about the fitness plans. While the results showed that the small test group did lose a few pounds, the studies didn’t take into account the changes in eating. This is one of the staples of the entire program. At DietSpotlight, we like seeing scientific research used to support a product or fitness program. We do become concerned when there’s no direct connection to dieters losing weight and when the findings don’t address reducing caloric intake.

The Bottom Line – Does Hypoxi Work?

So, are you booking your first session with Hypoxi? Well, we like that the company has been operating for years and that the exercises are low-impact, but we’re concerned about this one because the “research” available on the official website doesn’t exactly connect this fitness plan to weight-loss. We’re also a bit skeptical because it claims to target specific areas; which isn’t supported by science. Also, we raise the red flag when customers start talking about not seeing results and sessions they can’t afford.

Do you want to lose those extra pounds, without breaking the bank? If so, we suggest going with an affordable supplement that promotes weight-loss by providing ingredients proven to work.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Leptigen. This supplement contains four clinically-tested ingredients which have been shown to help accelerate weight-loss by boosting metabolism and igniting fat loss. We found dieters talking about seeing excellent results and no one is mentioning harmful side effects.

Also, the company that makes Leptigen is offering a Special Trial Offer – an impressive show of confidence in their supplement.

Previous Hypoxi Review (Updated August 16, 2016):

What You Should Know About Hypoxi

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.

Hypoxi 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.

Hypoxi 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 strongly suggest that people use common sense regarding Hypoxi – unlike me. I found it not to work and I obliged by the guidelines. The tech actually lied to me during my monthly reassessment and said that I lost 8 lbs. but I didn’t loose an ounce. I weighed myself on my home scale. The program is expensive and when you think logically, how can something so low-key give such promising results? Congrats to those of you that saw improvement. Moving forward, I would suggest that anyone that is signing up for the program should INSIST upon a money back guarantee, weigh themselves and measure themselves as opposed to relying on the tech to tell you your results. Worst part is that I was “friends” with the techs at the studio. Now the studio is offering severely discounted rates for their “service.” Don’t be a sucker and fall for this.


I just completed 12 sessions with the dermology included before each session as they say it enhances the results and increases blood flow before the vaccum. The dermology machine is also supposed to help skin tightening and toning. Well my skin did not change after the dermology. Dermology feels like pressotherapy, so you would be better off getting a machine to use at home .
Expensive for the results. I just put £1000down the drain on this. My upper stomach was smaller but I still had a pouch.
The hypoxi trainer would not comment when j asked if hypoxi would zap it.
I think you’re paying for almost one on one attention and the expense of the machines.
Also, the diet is rather strict. If I wanted to go to weight watchers, I would spend less. So how much of the weight loss is hypoxi and other the modified diet you have to maintain for results.
If you want a double session, the response is vague. What would happen if you did a double? Could it help the more resistant cases? But no, hypoxi trainers don’t think outside the box.
Finally, the results are not permanent. After those hundreds or thousands of pounds or dollars, you have to have maintenance sessions and keep to a diet. You might as well have fat freezing , at least that is permanent and probably works out cheaper than hypoxi.


I just had a free trial of hypoxi yesterday. Having a fan on me I didn’t notice the sweating so much. Weird sensation with the compression but not uncomfortable. My only concern was when getting out of machine I had bad pins and needles in my toes and feet. The consultant said some people have that issue but it goes away. My concern is pins and needles is from bad circulation so wondering if this is really that safe for me anyway

Sue A

Kel, the pins and needles are from lack of circulation. One session isn’t going to do much with Hypoxi. Depending on your age group you need to do at least 12 session (under 45). Hypoxi has helped me with my leg circulation and I found that my 3rd session the pins and needles subsided. You need to have your feet up right and legs at a 90 degree angle. Hope I’ve helped you .


Hi Kel. If you are experiencing side effects you believe are a result of this product, please make sure to consult with your physician.


Hi, im.going for 3 sessions of vacunaut and 3 sessions of toning. I got it for a special trial price of $35. Will update you about my sessions. 7th August 2016 Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia


signed up for 12 sessions. I lost 3kg so far after 4 sessions and I can see that my tummy shrunk a bit. I will sign for another 24 sessions after I have finished this sessions.


After the 6 the session, my inner thighs had some skin abrasion. It was painful. I had to stop for few days. After which I continued but had to stop again coz the vacunaut suit pinched my skin and left few spots bruised.Then the therapist asked me to apply moisturisers on the affected area. But now I had to stop because I need to let my skin rest. My tummy area was shrinking but every time I take days off from vacunaut, I would feel depressed coz if the pain from skin abrasion. I would end up eating more , my fault but I don’t think I wanna sign up another set if this suit is not suitable for me. I prefer vacunaut over other machines because my problem area is upper body especially my tummy. I’m confused now whether to continue this treatment.

I would like to open a hypoxi studio in Tehran iran, could you help me get the price of the machines and how much capital I might need to be able to set up such kind of a studio. I would also like to know if the company suggests for you the price for a session of hypoxi or its up to you. Thanks

Arnold (Editor)

Hi Sayed. We cannot say exactly what the prices are for buying bulk quantities of this product for resale. Try emailing their headquarters.

mahesh kumar

Hi, please advise is there any hypoxi studio in India also.


yes…we have studios in Ahemdabad, Delhi, Gurgaon.

Hildy Edwards

I have had my first hypoxi session this morning and from the start I felt mildly sick and very light headed, should I carry on?


Hildy, that indicates fatigue. You need to have something in your stomach!


I am 55 years old. Is hypoxi good for me? Or am I too old This?


I would like to open a hypoxi studio in Florence Italy, could you help me get the price of the machines and how much capital I might need to be able to set up such kind of a studio. I would also like to know if the company suggests for you the price for a session of hypoxi or its up to you. Thanks


I pre booked and paid for 12 sessions in advance. I have been to 3 sessions and hated it due to lower back issues I have recently experienced. Is there any way I can get a refund on the remaining 9 sessions?


Natalie, that’s strange you’re having lower back issues. These machines were designed for rehab for car accident patients. Which studio did you go to? You’ll need to position yourself into the machine and have your legs at a 90 degree angle, this will help with your back. 3 sessions isn’t going to do much for you (unless you’re on a very strict eating plan). Hypoxi Policy do not offer refunds.


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


Hi Alyson, thanks for the tip on no carbs for 6hrs after. I am trying my first session in two days & I think it’s always good to keep trying new things to find what works for you. Keep up the great work.


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!


I am a gym bunny (5 days a week) who hit a plateau before coming to Hypoxi then with Hypoxi and eating properly
“I have lost 1.3kg and 19cm in 6 sessions (L250). This experience has been great. I’m so excited that my results have been great! I cant wait to see what else i can do” 26yr old Event Manager.

We cant either! Well done lovely!!!
Wellington Studio


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.


i am in the middle of my hypoxi session. im not losing the inches were i want it to be lost. im an apple not a pear. the suite foe upper body does nothing for me. im disappointed so far but i have 6 more sessions to go. if no results than i wasted my 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 smile


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.

Joanna Smith

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…


Positive Reviews from people who work for HYPOXI???? That’s an interesting comment. If you do HYPOXI Correctly you will achieve results. Following the 3 times a week rule & following the nutritional guidelines.


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.

adi khan



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 sad
