$25/person with a $100 minimum. Want to rent it out with fewer than four people, no problem, but the $100 minimum cost remains. The room capacity is 10 people.
Why sleep in a hypoxic environment?
Sleeping in a hypoxic (low oxygen) environment provides many of the same benefits as training in one during our normal hours. Your body instinctively recognizes the low oxygen environment and kicks in several physiological adaptations. See our referenced list of benefits and scientific literature here. In short, the primary benefits that will help you prepare for high altitude destinations as well as perform better at sea level include:
- Increased EPO production. Erythropoietin (EPO) is a hormone produced by the kidney that promotes the formation of red blood cells by the bone marrow.
- Increased red blood cell production. Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen from the lungs to the muscles and other tissues. More red blood cells equates to more oxygen carrying capacity to fuel your body during exercise.
- Increased production of mitochondria. Mitochondria are the power generators of the cell, responsible for creating ATP. ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) is a molecule that is able to store and transport chemical energy within cells. ATP is good, MORE is better!
We suggest the following items for a comfortable stay, all are to be provided by the client:
- Earplugs, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, and pillow.
- Expect sleep to be less comfortable while at altitude. The reason Evolution has provided the opportunity to train high and live low is because you can get all the physiological benefits of high altitude training without the negative impacts of prolonged exposure: poor appetite, poor sleep, and poor recovery.
- Sleeping high should be expected to produce some impacts you may not desire, incorporate this into your training plan accordingly.
- Feel free to contact us with questions about your training plan or pros/cons of different training paradigms.
