THE SCIENCE BEHIND HIGH ALTITUDE TRAINING
High altitude training is a simple phenomenon which entails working out in a limited-oxygen environment. Exposure to such settings challenges the human body to produce the required amount of energy to perform exercise. Working out under such condition stimulates production of red blood cells and hence improved oxygen propagation through the body. The intended purpose is to ensure efficient use of the available amount of oxygen, which translates to enhanced stamina and explosive strength.
Since it’s not possible for every individual to access high altitude locations, Melbourne Altitude Training came up with an idea to change the equation for better. We have created simulated environment at our fitness centre so as to provide true feel of high altitude atmosphere, and the best part is that the system’s settings can be controlled and adjusted according to the individual needs. Once your body is trained to perform well under high altitude conditions, you’ll be amazed at your ability in a regular environment.
