Breathe better - Perform better

WellO2 training increases endurance and aids faster recovery


Stronger lungs - faster recovery

Athletes around the world use WellO2 to optimize breathing capacity, maximise performance and have faster recovery. WellO2 also supports lungs training in either dry air inside the gym or in cold outdoor air which expose the lungs to irritation and performance-impairing infections.
Exhale to strengthen lungs and endurance

As you exhale into WellO2, the resistance function strengthens the lungs and deep abdominal muscles and improves breathing endurance. WellO2 has 4 settings so you can increase resistance over time as you get stronger

Inhale to clear airways boost immunity

As you inhale with WellO2, temperature controlled warm steam moisturizes the airways and reduces congestion. This process naturally supports the immune system and reduces the risk of respiratory infections to protect you in training and competition days.

Rest and recover

Deep breathing during WellO2 training stimulates the vagus nerve, which is part of the parasympathetic nervous system to calm the mind and improve sleep for better recovery.

Easy, safe and only takes 2 x 5 mins daily

WellO2 training is easy, safe and only take 2 x 5 minutes per day to fit into any busy training regime. WellO2 supports your training goals and helps you smash those personal bests.

5 easy steps for better performance & endurance

WellO2 opens, cleanses and strengthens the airways without medication. Here are 5 simple steps for optimal results.

Blow calmly into the device.


Breathe in the warm, soothing steam from your WellO2 device.


Repeat 3 to 10 times, you can rest between repetitions


Open the upper respiratory tract and reduce congestion with the help of the nasal mask.


Use WellO2 for just a few minutes a day for optimal results.

"My friend recommended that I should start using WellO2, especially because I have asthma. I'm into powerlifting and bodybuilding. A lot of my free time is spent at the gym in Bellanranta, Kuopio.

WellO2 has improved my oxygen uptake and reduced mucus secretion. Air seems to flow better in my lungs after using the device. Using the device gives me quick impacts. The effect begins in approximately 15-30 minutes."

"I first heard about Wello last spring and I started using it just in time before the start of the season. I was the one on our team who started to test Wello, because I wanted to see if it would ease my spring allergy symptoms. Wello was able to help my symptoms of congestion caused by allergies, and my breathing was eased immediately after using the device. After using Wello for a longer time, I noticed the benefits it brought when running between the bases. As a base runner, it is especially important for me that I can breathe easily and that my muscles get oxygen, because I need to run at maximum speed many times during a game."

"Using Wello has become a permanent part of my training routine, and Wello also comes with me in my suitcase to races and training camps. I regularly inhale warm steam, including to the upper respiratory tract with the help of the nasal mask that comes with the device. This is especially important during the flu season when the risk of getting sick is higher. I have managed to stay exceptionally healthy for the last three training seasons. Using Wello has been one of my key preventative ways to avoid getting sick."

"I use Wello for developing the endurance, maximum and speed strength of the respiratory muscles in order to obtain greater breathing efficiency and economy. As an asthmatic, the warm steam has helped keep symptoms under control, meaning that the condition no longer limits my performance. It has also helped prevent upper respiratory tract infections and treat their symptoms. I have found that respiratory exercise with heavy resistance also improves posture, increases the support of the midsection, and helps with strength training and the safety of heavy lifting.

These 'Savo bagpipes' have become a permanent part of my training – a great invention to help many."

"I first heard about Wello from my coach, who told me that Aulis Kärkkäinen (the inventor of the device) from Kiuruvesi has developed a device for strengthening respiratory capacity. The reason why breathing is important for me, other than for staying alive, is that the breathing rhythm controls the pace of the run and the stronger the breathing capacity, the more oxygen the muscles get and lactic acid is not produced so quickly. As an athlete, I also consider it important that all my muscles are strong and, for me, my lung muscles are as important as my biceps or hamstrings and perhaps even more important. In winter, one trains and competes in buildings with poor air quality and this is the downside to training in dry indoor air. This is when I take the Wello2 device out of my training bag and take a deep inhale and breathe. I want to spread the message of Wello to track-and-field athletes of all ages and to all other athletes. I recommend using Wello. Don't forget to breathe!"
