Endurance Athlete Training
Simulated altitude training is a strategy for athletes who live at or near sea level and train in low-oxygen environments that simulate high altitudes. Reducing the oxygen in the environment increases the training stimulus, which causes the body to adapt and become more efficient at using oxygen. These physiological adaptations can lead to numerous performance benefits that can take you to the front of the pack in your next race.

- Boosting my stamina without spending hours training
- Struggling to shave critical seconds/minutes off of my race time
- It’s hard to find the right balance of training and recovery
- Easing the impact of long sessions on my body without then losing fitness benefit
- Traveling to altitude camps can be costly and time-consuming
- Go Longer: Increase the body’s capacity to deliver oxygen to working muscles and tissues
- Go Harder: Improve anaeorbic threshold so you can work at higher speeds without excess fatigue
- Recover Faster: Better lactate clearance to delay the onset of fatigue
- Train Smarter: Reduce training load while boosting fitness
Train in the chamber: Indoor bikes with a real gear shift, treadmills that measure your cadence, power and ground time, bike trainers AND the capacity for simulation and data analysis through third-party apps like Zwift and Strava

ENDURANCE Training CASE STUDIES
Altitude has been studied extensively in the context of endurance athlete training. It has been shown to provide numerous race-making benefits. As an endurance athlete, this means you can work at the same or higher intensity for longer without accumulating fatigue.
