WELCOME TO OXY ATHLETICS WHERE WE "BREATHE" SUCCESS!
Many of you might be wondering, what is “Oxy”?
Where did this word come from?
Oxy is the short form for the word Oxygen. Oxygen is the most essential gas our body needs for growth and energy. It is the most important gas that we breathe in every second we inhale. Oxygen makes up 65% of the human body and it is responsible for 90% of the bodies energy. Without Oxygen the cells in our bodies would die, hence OXYGEN is necessary for life. In the same breath, FITNESS is necessary, SUCCESS is necessary; and at Oxy Athletics our goal is to help you "BREATHE" SUCCESS.
