“Which POWERbreathe should I buy?” is a popular question, so here is a quick overview of the POWERbreathe Classic, Plus and K-Series. 

Which POWERbreathe Should I buy?

The POWERbreathe Classic and Plus IMT models require you to manually adjust the training load. However, the electronic POWERbreathe K-Series features an electronically controlled resistance valve that will automatically provide the appropriate training load.

The Classic and Plus Series

POWERbreathe Classic is the original series of POWERbreathe IMT devices. Due to its lower cost, it makes an ideal entry-level series for those wishing to begin breathing training.

POWERbreathe Plus has a contemporary, ergonomic design with a 65% improvement in airflow dynamics, making it a more comfortable user experience. 

Which POWERbreathe Classic or Plus Should I Buy?

The POWERbreathe Classic and POWERbreathe Plus each has three models available in order to accommodate everyone, whatever level of fitness or breathing strength.

  • Light Resistance – Entry level for new users and those with breathing problems (e.g. asthma).
  • Medium Resistance – For those who are moderate to very fit.
  • Heavy Resistance – Only for those who have reached the maximum loading on the Medium Resistance.

The K-Series

Because it uses auto-optimising Inspiratory Muscle Training technology, it takes the guesswork out of training. Unlike the Classic and Plus series, the electronic K-Series offers advanced, adaptable and personalised respiratory coaching.
