Our History

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 foundation 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

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 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 more than 50 countries across the globe – making the world’s leading supplier of vacuum technology based weight loss systems.

In 2009, HYPOXI Australia was awarded the Westpac Smart Company Award for is innovative range and smart business practices.

In 2014, Goodlife Health Clubs acquired HYPOXI Australia Pty Limited, which is part of the Fitness Lifestyle Group.
