Breathe+ comes in 2 sizes: S/M (~34″ long) and L/XL (~40″ long). The breathe+ goes around your lower ribcage just below the chest. It differs from the original core360 belt in that rather than having 4 larger pressure points, it has 8-9 1.5″ half balls that slide along a channel on the inside of the belt. This allows the points to be adjusted around the ribcage so you get the best feedback for you.
The breathe+ is used on it’s own to help you learn how to get expansion of your ribcage as you inhale which is important to get full diaphragm breathing. Ribcage stiffness and poor breathing patterns often result in lack of this all important rib expansion. Good breathing is important for our general wellbeing, but it also impacts how well we move, our posture and our ability to protect our joints and tissues to prevent pain, strain and injury.
The breathe+ becomes even more powerful when you pair it with the original core360 belt to help you learn how to get that 360° expansion of your abdomen and ribs at the same time! This is the real key!
S/M – Fits up to 32″ lower ribcage circumference
L/XL – Fits up to 40″ lower ribcage circumference

The core360 belt is the patent pending, first-of-its-kind training belt that helps you move, breathe and perform better. By providing input and feedback, it helps you to create the intra-abdominal pressure you need for strong, supported movement. It is also effective for training proper breathing by using the diaphragm.
The core360 belt can be used during sports or during normal daily activities: from weight lifting to yoga, from running to walking, from loading a truck full of boxes to raking leaves or vacuuming your house, from improving your breathing during a sport to focusing on breathing during meditation, from training your diaphragm for acting or singing to improving your breathing to ease anxiety. It can benefit all ages and activity levels.
The core360 belt is made with custom elastic made in Los Angeles to our specifications for optimal results. The core360 belt is manufactured in Mexico and assembled in Los Angeles, CA.
Each belt is made of elastic and is black in color, with the core360 logo on the front. The belt fastens via hook and loop (velcro) and is adjustable. The pockets that hold the protrusions or pressure points are black or gray on the side that faces your body and black with a purple stripe on the portion that faces outward. The logo and purple stripe provide additional cuing (visual) in order to help you improve your core activation and/or your breathing pattern.
