LAKE FOREST, CA, March 26, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Oxygen4energy.com, an online retailer of recreational canned breathing oxygen that can be very beneficial to athletes, today announced a partnership with snowboarding legend, Ross Powers.
If you have ever seen a pro football game, you have seen players using breathing oxygen on the sidelines to improve their performance. In the past, only the most elite teams and athletes had access to breathing oxygen because it required a medical doctor's supervision and was very expensive. Now however, through companies like Oxygen4energy.com, recreational breathing oxygen is available in portable cans and can be purchased and used by the general public.
Over the course of his amazing career, Powers has won just about every snowboarding title there is, including X Games, Grand Prix, New Zealand Open, European Open, US Open, Vans Triple Crown, Goodwill Games, and the Olympics. Widely recognized as one of the most popular snowboarding figures in the world, Powers recently transferred his riding skills from the halfpipe to snowboardcross. He had a successful first year in snowboardcross, nearly qualifying for the Olympic team, and is excited about the new challenge of reaching the podium in snowboardcross.
Although there currently is no scientific research to support the performance enhancing capability of short bursts of oxygen, many athletes swear by it.
"Given the nature of snowboarding, we spend a lot of time on the road traveling around the world for competitions, alternating between varying levels of altitude, which really takes its toll on your body, not to mention the physical aspects of actual training and riding that we put ourselves through in order to be the best. For me, canned oxygen has been a big benefit - it helps me deal with altitude issues, it gives me energy and greater endurance, it reduces the burn in my legs from a tough run, and it helps me recover much faster between runs - all of which allows me to concentrate solely on my riding," stated Powers.
A spokesperson at Oxygen4energy.com stated, "We are very excited to have a World Champion snowboarder like Ross Powers endorsing our product. And what's great is that he joined our team because he really enjoys using our product as part of his training and competition routine. He is a great ambassador to his sport and we know he will be a great ambassador for our product. Although we believe our canned oxygen can be beneficial in all sports, snow sports are an area where it is even more beneficial because most are done at altitude and canned oxygen is fantastic at combating the negative effects of altitude."
Oxygen4Energy.com sells 99% pure canned oxygen for recreational uses including: sports & fitness, general energy, hangovers, mental clarity and focus, altitude sickness, jet lag, stress and more. For more information, go to our website: www.oxygen4energy.com
