At Melbourne Altitude Training we aim to provide an affordable, state of the art, simulated altitude facility, conveniently located in the Melbourne CBD, offering a training facility available to everyone!

ALTITUDE BENEFITS

The goal of simulated altitude training is to stimulate adaptation to low oxygen levels in the body. During this process the body gets more efficient at transporting and using oxygen by developing stronger respiratory muscles, more red blood cells and increasing the number of small blood vessels. The body’s ability to buffer lactic acid improves as well as stimulating positive changes in the structure of muscle cells. These changes improve how muscles function and outstanding fitness benefits are achieved.

Key Advantages

  • – Improved aerobic condition and endurance
  • – Weight management
  • – Cardiovascular health
  • – Muscular endurance (repeat sprint ability)
  • – Improved strength, growth and repair
  • – Improved insulin and glucose sensitivity
  • – Pre-Acclimatisation
  • – Fitness gains during injury rehabilitation
  • – Improved sleep and stress management

 

ALTITUDE EXPLAINED

The environment and physiological response

The air we breathe is a mixture of gases. Nitrogen is the most prominent with roughly 79%, then Oxygen at 20.9% and a mixture of other smaller gasses making up our atmosphere. As we ascend a mountain and/or go to a higher altitude, the air is described as becoming thinner with less available molecules per breath. This is due to lower atmospheric (air) pressure. By reducing the percentage of available oxygen, we simulate altitude conditions without lowering air pressure. At Melbourne Altitude Training, our altitude room can be set at sea level (20.9% O2) through to 5000m (11.5% O2).
