Fitness and Performance

Simulated altitude training is a cutting-edge fitness and performance technique that is gaining popularity among non-elite athletes and fitness enthusiasts worldwide. This training method involves exposing the body to short periods of reduced oxygen levels, which stimulates a range of physiological responses that can enhance athletic performance, boost endurance, and improve overall fitness.

Meet with A Coach

Whether you’re a weekend warrior, serious exerciser or just starting out on your fitness journey, training at altitude can help you take your performance to the next level. Talk to a coach about the benefits for you and your specific training goals.


Build Lean Muscle Mass

See greater gains in lean muscle mass vs. training at a regular gym. Resistance training at altitude increases the metabolic stress in your muscles, which is one of the key factors to increasing lean muscle mass. Altitude training has also been shown to increase muscle fiber recruitment and improve muscle endurance, allowing you to lift heavier weights for longer periods of time.

Accelerate Fat Loss

Simulated altitude training is a highly effective training method for fat loss. Decrease fat mass more effectively and create a larger caloric deficit with the same amount of exercise. In one study, participants saw a reduction in fat mass of about 7% by training at altitude compared to the group training at sea-level, which didn’t see any reduction.

Train Smarter

Since you’ve got big training goals and not a whole lot of time on your hands, it’s time you found a way to train smarter. With the unique demands altitude puts on your body, you can see fitness gains in about half the time of your regular sea-level workout and at a lower training load (i.e less wear and tear on your body).

Elevate Endurance and Cardio

By inducing a state of hypoxia, the body responds by boosting oxygen delivery to muscles and improving the efficiency of the cardiovascular system. The result is an increase in your overall stamina and endurance, allowing you to perform at a higher level for longer periods of time.
