Case Studies: Altitude Clients

70-year-old Asthmatic Swimmer

“I trained a 70-year-old asthmatic (who wants to be a better swimmer) with an altitude generator for the last 4 weeks. He works with me 3x/week and we train in a hypoxic (reduced oxygen) environment for at least 20 minutes every session. He leaves each session feeling like he breathes better. He has noted that this feeling carries over to his swimming at the pool, and NO he has not passed out. Throughout the session, we monitor his heart rate and blood oxygen levels making sure they are in a healthy range. If the numbers get towards the edge of our safe zone, we adjust by either decreasing the altitude or decreasing the exercise intensity.”
