HYPOXI began with a revolutionary idea by Dr. Norbert Egger, an Austrian sports scientist. With his invention of the HYPOXI-Method, Dr. Norbert Egger laid the foundations for an entirely new category of body shaping. After graduating from the University of Salzburg, he rounded off his competencies with extensive advanced training in the areas of rehabilitation and health training. In 1983, he founded Austria’s first fitness and health studio for women in Salzburg. Over the course of the years, however, he noticed that many women were unable able to shift their problem areas through healthy diets and regular exercise.
A New Discovery
As a sports scientist, Egger knew that fat is burned primarily in regions where the tissue is best supplied with blood and above all, fat is burned by movement. That’s why he was focused on developing training devices which would combine circulation-enhancing methods with movement.
With this knowledge in mind, he set out with a team of scientists and mechanical engineers to develop a revolutionary training device. This was the first time in history pressure therapy was used simultaneously with fat burning exercise.
The team believed in solid empirical evidence to prove their theories. So in 1997, Dr Egger undertook a landmark study testing HYPOXI with 530 women.
The results were so profound that HYPOXI was launched into production that same year. HYPOXI products have proven so effective that the company now distributes to 50 countries across the globe – making the world’s leading supplier of vacuum technology based weight loss systems.
Hypoxi Australia, est. 2005
HYPOXI Australia Pty Limited was established in 2005 after one of the founders lost 18Kg in a small HYPOXI studio in London.
Devastated that HYPOXI treatments were not available in Australia, the founders swiftly set up Australian operations so they could distribute the revolutionary product across the country. 100% Australian owned and managed, HYPOXI Australia has grown from a single studio operation to a network of over 80 HYPOXI treatment locations throughout the nation.
In 2009, HYPOXI Australia was awarded the Westpac Smart Company Award for its innovative range and smart business practices.
In 2014, Goodlife Health Clubs acquired HYPOXI Australia Pty Limited.
