Airofit generates resistance on your respiratory muscles – primarily the diaphragm and the intercostal muscles. This causes fatigue, which is then overcompensated by muscle tissue growth, making your breathing muscles faster, stronger and more efficient – just like any other muscle group.

HOW DOES AIROFIT WORK?

See how we turn proven breathing techniques into a data-driven training solution.

THE BASICS

Of all the body’s muscle groups, the ones with the power to make a fast difference for performance are the respiratory muscles – simply because we usually don’t train them.

Together with breathing experts like Mike Maric, we have developed a range of breathing exercises that focus on different areas of your breathing to ensure you are able to unlock your full physical potential.

THE BREATHING TRAINER

Your Airofit breathing trainer provides adjustable airflow resistance, making your respiratory muscles work overtime. Depending on the selected training program, duration and intensity, you will be able to select the most appropriate resistance level.

Airofit’s E-unit contains pressure sensors and a Bluetooth transmitter. This allows us to measure your breathing patterns and visualize them on your phone via the Airofit Sport mobile app.

THE MOBILE APP

Airofit has combined respiratory training with the latest technology by connecting the trainer to your smartphone.

Since all training is designed to be done separately form physical activity, your phone guides you through all exercises.

The app acts as a virtual breathing coach, giving you live feedback and ensuring all exercises are performed correctly since you see the level of your compliance. The access to your training data gives an overview of your progress over time.

No need to hit the beach to surf, you can make your own waves with the YuJet Surfer electric jetboard

A design team comprising pro surfers and engineers has revealed its first product aimed at having eco-friendly fun on the water. The YuJet Surfer is an electric surfboard that’s said to bring “the power of a jetski to a surfboard.”

YuJet Surfer electric jetboard promises 40 minute ride at up to 24 mph

Surfboards able to propel themselves are nothing new, but they’re still not a particularly common sight at beaches, lakes or rivers. If you want to make your own waves without polluting the local environment with noise and fumes, you could opt for even more rare all-electric boards. But it’ll cost you a pretty penny – the recently announced Rävik S, for example, could set you back almost US$19,000. A new e-surfer from YuJet washes up at almost half that.

“We’ve worked for years to create a product that can propel powered water sports forward,” said YuJet’s co-founder, Jeremy Schneiderman. “Our first product to market, the YuJet Surfer, is the culmination of our passion, our experience, and our vision for the future. We wanted to make a product that was easy to ride for every skill level and could deliver the thrill of surfing in just minutes. We cannot wait for everyone to experience the excitement of the ride.”

The YuJet Surfer, like the Rävik S, rocks a carbon fiber hull with Eva grips and neoprene handles that helps it tip the scales at 20 lb (9 kg), with the battery removed. That lithium-ion battery is reported waterproof and could keep you on the water for up to 40 minutes per charge. An electric motor drives a jetski-like water jet for up to 24 mph (38.6 km/h) of relatively quiet, local emissions-free e-surfing.

The wireless controller with variable speed trigger offers beginner and rider performance modes, and YuJet reckons that learners can be up and riding on the water in as little as five minutes.

And when it’s time to head home, the fins and battery can be removed without needing tools. The company has aimed for minimal maintenance too, with a quick spray down with clean water all that’s needed to keep the e-surfboard looking sharp. Optional accessories include a replacement battery, battery charger and wheel set (to help roll the board to waiting transport on land).

The YuJet Surfer is available from today for US$9,999, which ain’t cheap. But if you have the cash to splash, it does look like fun – as you can see in the short video below.
