Scientifically Backed Benefits
Altitude training conducted in an oxygen deficient (hypoxic) environment and is pursued for many reasons. Most commonly, it is utilized as a tool to trigger physiological changes in the body that are aimed at improving performance. The body’s most basic physiological response to a lack of oxygen is an increase in EPO (erythropoietin) and a resultant increase in red blood cells. Red blood cells deliver oxygen to the body, thus the increased number of red blood cells leads to improved oxygen delivery. Some of the most noteworthy scientifically backed research indicates:
- Improved performance
- Improved aerobic fitness
- Increased strength
- Pre-acclimation to high altitude locations
- Accelerated recovery and return from injuries
- Maintenance of fitness while injured
- Increased fat metabolism
- Increased mitochondria production
- Increased energy production
- Increased capillary density
- Increased oxygen delivery
Training in our Altitude Training Room opens up a wide range of benefits and we hope integrating some train high and live low strategies will help you break through plateaus that were previously inaccessible. Olympic athletes train in a very similar altitude room at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs before they compete in places like Rio, which is at sea level! Now YOU can train like an Olympian.
Our Altitude Training Room will adhere to the following general schedule so you can plan your training appropriately.
- Monday – 9,000 feet
- Tuesday – 10,000 feet
- Wednesday – 11,000 feet
- Thursday – 12,000 feet
- Friday – 11,000 feet
- Saturday – 12,000 feet
- The first Sunday of each month will be at 14,000 feet. The 2nd Sunday will be 15,000 feet. The 3rd Sunday will be 14,000 feet. The 4th Sunday will be 15,000 feet. The LAST Sunday of every month will be at a staggering 17,000 feet. Follow us on Facebook to keep updated on the schedule.
