The ALTITUDE TRAINING lab
Restricted Mask Training
Every athlete starts at restrictive mask training before we begin altitude training.
4,000 Feet Above Sea Level
Training at 4,000 feet above sea level is the starting point. Your body and lungs will have to work overtime to keep up.
12,000 Feet Above Sea Level
Our altitude training can take your body up 12,000 feet which like training at the top of Mt Fuji.

BENEFITS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING
Altitude TRAINING Therapy
Breathing oxygen deficient air increases the production of red blood cells, increases pulmonary oxygen absorption, Increased capillarization for greater oxygen delivery to the tissues, muscles, and brain and stimulates fat metabolism. Altitude training in athletes is connected not only with the enhancement of effort efficiency or enhanced physical endurance after a return to sea level.
The advantage of altitude training is that the muscles get a natural boost when more oxygen is available during lower-altitude competitions. The disadvantage is that athletes simply can't train as hard at high altitude, even though the training may feel difficult.
How do you train your body AT high altitude?
It is often not practical to prepare by actually spending time up high, but you can train your heart and lungs for altitude, even at sea level. Do at least four hour-long sessions per week of full-effort aerobic exercise, such as running, biking or swimming while breathing sub-normal oxygen air.
At what height is altitude training effective?
Altitude training is the practice by some endurance athletes of training for several weeks at high altitude, preferably over 2,400 metres (8,000 ft) above sea level, though more commonly at intermediate altitudes.
