OPTIMIZED BREATHING IS RICH FRONING'S SECRET WEAPON FOR ELITE PERFORMANCE
Rich Froning has put a considerable amount of attention into his breathing when training with the guidance of endurance coach Chris Hinshaw. Proper breathing technique, using equipment that supports that technique, and training that technique as one might do for a major muscle group during competition prep are key aspects to Froning’s ongoing dominance at the CrossFit Games. In addition to his four individual Games titles, he has five team titles with Team Mayhem Freedom and is in search of a sixth. Froning’s choice to improve his breathing in training and in competition: The AIRWAAV Performance Mouthpiece.
ONE INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY.
TWO PERFORMANCE-DRIVEN DESIGNS.
The AIRWAAV HIIT Performance Mouthpiece is engineered for serious cross-training athletes chasing new PRs. The open bite channel provides a looser fit, ideal for high intensity interval training and strength sessions where clenching is more common and the mouthpiece is taken out between rounds and sets.
The AIRWAAV ENDURANCE Performance Mouthpiece is designed for the driven endurance athletes chasing their personal best. The form-fitting bars along the bite plate and narrow bite channel provide a lockdown fit, keeping the mouthpiece in place while the jaw is relaxed during long distance workouts.
AIRWAAV Hybrid Pack
With complete Mayhem branding, including the signature navy bite plates and Mayhem-branded performance cases, the AIRWAAV Mayhem Edition Hybrid Pack will have any hybrid athlete fully prepared to train like a member of Mayhem Nation. Includes both AIRWAAV HIIT and AIRWAAV ENDURANCE plus two Mayhem-branded cases.
"AIRWAAV IS INFLUENCING TRAINING BY BRINGING AWARENESS TO MY BREATHING SO I'M MORE EQUIPPED TO HANDLE THE CURVEBALLS THAT ARE SURE TO COME AT THIS YEARS' CROSSFIT GAMES."
-RICH FRONING, 9X GAMES CHAMPION
CT Scans prove the mouthpiece increases the width of your airway by up to 25% for improved breathing efficiency.
AIRWAAV reduces respiatory rate by 20% resulting in less lactic acid production and lower perceived exertion.
Reduces cortisol by build up by 50% post-workout for faster recovery
HOW TO USE AIRWAAV
It's important to understand that your tongue is a muscle and this device will help train and position your tongue to allow you to optimize your performance. You will experience the benefits just by wearing AIRWAAV during training sessions and in competition.

Does the AIRWAAV restrict my breathing?
NO. In fact, the AIRWAAV™ Performance Mouthpiece (device) adjusts your jaw and positions your tongue in a way that makes breathing more natural and efficient.
How do I clean my AIRWAAV
We will be releasing AIRWAAV™ All Natural Mouthpiece Cleaner in the near future, but in the meantime, use cool water and light soap or toothpaste and gently brush with a toothbrush.

"When I started using my AIRWAAV, my FTP (function threshold power) went up 20 watts, seemingly overnight."

"Everything was faster with a similar level of exertion. I noticed immediately that I felt less ‘drag’ in my airway."
