Altitude Room

Training at altitude has been used to improve athletic performance for decades. Since the Mexico Olympic Games in 1968, when the effects of altitude on performance were first made obvious, many teams and individuals use altitude training as part of their preparation.

 

ATS products allow this powerful tool to be accessed by athletes of all standards without the expense and time required to travel to real altitude. We can help athletes of all standards reach their optimal performance potential: improvements in repeat sprint effort; oxygen carrying capacity of the blood and other cardio-vascular improvements are all facilitated by altitude training.

f5Altitude training improves a number of important parameters in sports performance. Recent research using Simulated Altitude Training systems, such as ATS equipment, has shown improved performance at sea level following a block of altitude exposure and training in elite cyclists. Other studies demonstrate positive effects such as improved repeat sprint performance, increased anabolic hormonal responses and increased red blood cell mass.

completeThe mechanisms for this are still being researched, but oxygen delivery and utilisation at a number of levels (mechanical and cellular) as well a improved buffering capacity have been demonstrated. Most of the immediate benefits to sports performance involve a qualitative improvement in the physiological systems related to oxygen delivery and energy utilisation.

The most significant results in sports performance come from effectively integrated altitude training programs, with individual monitoring and progression. ATS has the resources and experience to assist any athlete achieve the best possible results from altitude training.
