The most comprehensive guide to breathwork in existence.
Harness the power of the breath to influence the mind, enhance fitness, control stress & emotional states, and improve health and performance. Understand and master breathwork across a full spectrum of techniques and learn core principles that will reshape the way you look at breathing for every situation.
“Every breath you take is a step towards optimization or dysfunction. You are going to breathe anyway, so why not start there as the foundation for long-term lifestyle optimization?” ~ PJ Nestler | XPT Performance Director
WHY DO I NEED THIS COURSE?
Breathing is the foundation of life. It influences every system and cell in the body and everybody is doing it thousands of times per day. However, many of us never put conscious thought into our breath, and never learn how to do it properly. We end up taking thousands of dysfunctional breaths per day and never even know it. In this online-only course, you will learn why optimal breathing is so important, how to assess functional and dysfunctional breathing in various situations, and how to teach and prescribe dozens of breathing methods designed to enhance your physical and mental health, performance, and longevity.
WHAT LEADING PROFESSIONALS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS COURSE!

Whether it’s breathing to control stress or as part of recovery, XPT is cutting edge when it comes to integrating the science and performance of breathing as a key component of being an optimized human.” ~ Dr. Belisa Vranich | BreathingClass Founder and author of “Breathe: The Simple, Revolutionary 14-Day Program to Improve your Mental and Physical Health “

Without question, this is a massively importance piece to the human performance” ~ Dr. Andy Galpin | Director BioChemistry & Molecular Exercise Physiology Lab and advisor to XPT
“As recent as five years ago, breathing was seldom considered as a performance strategy. Now, it is top of the agenda for many high performance coaches, elite athletes, law enforcement and military personnel. Performance Breathing is a major focus of XPT, encompassing the best techniques from around the world to improve recovery, resilience and performance. Attend XPT and incorporate scientifically based strategies to improve sleep, focus and exercise performance. It’s a game changer!” ~ Patrick McKeown | author of The Oxygen Advantage and advisor to XPT

The XPT Affiliate rate is currently $200 per year
(but may increase in the future)
Becoming an XPT affiliate gives you the right to market XPT classes or programs using the XPT brand through any communication channels (social media, newsletters, websites).
What it does NOT give you the right to do is:
-Brand any location or unit as an XPT facility, gym or box
-Create an XPT branded business, website or social media account
If an XPT Franchise location ultimately opens in your territory we will likely not be able to renew your XPT Affiliate status, but you will be well positioned to be the franchisee or have a beautiful new facility where you can coach.
