Hypoxic (Altitude) Chamber
Our hypoxic training chamber is for
those really wanting to take their training and results to the next level - the
technology represents the most advanced, natural performance enhancing tools
available for improving all facets of performance, most notably fitness,
recovery, and rehabilitation.
By reducing the amount of oxygen in
the air, it forces your cardio-respiratory systems to work even harder to
deliver sufficient oxygen to your working muscles. The result? A harder workout,
and faster results. In addition, the body adapts to the reduced oxygen by
stimulating the production of the hormone Erythropoietin (EPO), which in turn
leads to an increase in the level of haemoglobin and red blood cells (those
that carry the oxygen). Synthetic forms of EPO do exist: they thicken the blood
and are consequently banned by the The International Olympic Committee.
However, the level of EPO naturally generated by exercise at altitude and in
hypoxic facilities is not considered dangerous and is therefore legal.
Regular hypoxic training can give a
big physical advantage to members of climbing groups, sports people,
competitive athletes, those training for an event, those looking to lose fat,
the injured, and anyone looking to gain an extra edge from their training!
chamber contains treadmills, bikes, a x-trainer, and a rower – meaning there is
no limit to the type of altitude training you can do. It is the next best thing
to living on the mountain!
