WHAT IS ALTITUDE TRAINING

For over 50 years, sports scientists and athletes have been experimenting and taking advantage of the performance benefits of real and simulated altitude training.

The lower oxygen concentration in the altitude studios makes your body work harder without increasing your physical workload, making workout sessions more time effective – which, in turn, reduces strain on joints and muscles.

BENEFITS

ALTITUDE88 Training sessions are designed to promote weight loss, aerobic condition, agility, muscle development and tone. In addition, other benefits include flexibility, core strength, relaxation and stress management. Training at altitude delivers a never experienced before new dimension to the sessions, providing you with the ability to achieve new heights and goals.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR SESSIONS

Active sessions conducted in our three altitude studios will enhance the positive effects of physical exercise. Sessions can be from 30-60 mins. Exercises in these sessions include light cardiovascular, functional body weight or resistance exercises.

BE PART OF THE GROWING COMMUNITY

With Institutions such as The Australian Institute of Sport & AFL, altitude training is becoming a huge success for everyone. Australian professional athletes are using this technology to improve co-ordination and performance under stress. There is a growing number of companies offering Corporate Active altitude training as it helps to improve:

  • Time Management

  • Self-esteem

With a corporate SAT programme in place the focus is on your employees health, wellbeing and performance.

TOP 5 BENEFITS

CALORIE BURN

Altitude sessions burn up to 25% more calories. Studies have also shown decreases in body mass and a reduction in body fat percentage.

MUSCULAR ENDURANCE

As you adapt to the altitude environment, your tolerance to the anaerobic component of intense physical exercise improves. Studies have shown positive outcomes for muscular endurance and repeat sprint ability.

STRENGTH GAINS

Strength training in simulated altitude or hypoxic conditions stimulates muscle growth and leads to a higher tolerance of intense physical exercise. To maximise muscle growth (hypertrophy) add 3 sessions of resistance training and target specific muscle groups. Monitoring your blood oxygen saturation between each set and increasing recovery time is essential.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

We all know that both exercise and an appropriate eating plan is essential to reaching your target weight. Altitude training accelerates the positive outcomes of exercise including fat loss and increased metabolism. Adding just 3 sessions of light to moderate exercise at altitude per week to your fitness regime will have a positive impact.

CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH

Adaptation to hypoxia through simulated altitude training offers a major benefit to aerobic condition and cardiovascular health, this results in improved oxygen delivery and utilisation without increasing the muscular skeletal load or exercise time. This makes altitude training the single most effective, efficient and simplest way to legally improve your aerobic condition.
