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.
"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

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