Patrick McKeown has helped thousands of people to substantially improve their sports performance and overall health by incorporating simple, medically proven principles and exercises into their lives. In 1997, after graduating from Trinity College in Dublin, McKeown applied the work of Dr. Konstantin Buteyko to address his lifelong asthma, soaring stress levels, and sleep-disordered breathing. The Oxygen Advantage is an extension of this work, combining simulation of high-altitude training and specifically formulated exercises not only for significantly improving anyone's health, but also to empower athletes to improve their sports performance safely, legally, and at no cost. In addition to running workshops throughout his native Ireland, each year he gives workshops in North America, Europe, and Australia on maximizing one's life's potential through breath.
"McKeown introduces readers to the "Oxygen Advantage," an innovative but complex breathing technique that purportedly improves overall health... McKeown's confident attitude should help his book appeal to a wide audience." -- Publishers Weekly"I'm an NFL wide receiver and my Bolt Score was 13. Three weeks later it's 30 and improving; running has gotten so much easier. I'm in better shape for another opportunity because I'm so much better at the simple act of breathing. It really does add up!" -- Jay Wisner, NFL Free Agent"Patrick McKeown, breathing trainer and author of The Oxygen Advantage, recommends breathing through your nose...It'll feel weird, but within a few weeks, you'll notice you can exercise longer and don't tire as quickly." -- Dr. Oz The Good Life
