    Oxyfit Portable Oxygen Backpack

    What you see here isn’t the YFit, but the photo has cropped off the word “Oxyfit”. Oxyfit is a backpack with your own personal oxygen supply.


    You might be wondering why you would need your own personal oxygen supply. I mean, is the air that polluted? Well, pollution isn’t the only reason why you would need oxygen.


    According to the Oxyfit product description, an increase of oxygen lets you “run farther, work longer, and even lose weight”. It sounds like the boasts of an energy drink, but here is the science: the increased supply speeds up the body’s “metabolic engine, burning more calories and stimulating fat loss”. Also, it can produce “nootropic (brain stimulating) and anti-aging effects through increased moisturizing of the skin”.

    Apparently, athletes have been using this type of therapy to improve their game for years, not to mention those who frequent oxygen bars. I guess I’ve never felt a need to pay for oxygen any more than I would pay for water. Of course, the bottled water industry is pretty big, and I have paid my share to them over the years.

    I don’t think I could pay $2,681 (with $49 shipping) for an Oxyfit. It comes with an oxygen tube, aspirator, battery pack, and tote bag or backpack. This weighs about 3.5 pounds and comes with a lithium battery that can last 90 minutes per charge.
