Altitude training improves physical performance at sea-level and at altitude by enhancing muscle function and increasing the transport and uptake of oxygen by the body. Through sleeping, exercising, and/or intermittent breathing, individuals and teams can naturally increase power, endurance and recovery.
Athletes in every sport are now realizing the performance benefits that altitude training has on can have on strength, power and endurance. Through a combination of sleeping in normobaric hypoxia every night and moderately working out at altitude 2-3 times per week, athletes can increase performance to otherwise unachievable levels. Scientific studies have shown improvements in VO2 Max and Lactate Threshold by as much as 10%.
The proper altitude training program can substantially boost body’s oxygen transport systems through enhanced ventilation, naturally increased EPO production and increased mitochondrial efficiency. This will allow more efficient energy production both aerobically as well as anaerobically. Ultimately this will allow the athlete to experience:
- Increased endurance and speed
- Less Fatigue
- Improved recovery
The Hypoxico Altitude System has been an incredible addition to our strength and conditioning program. It’s a revolutionary, cutting edge way of training that gives us an advantage over the regular day to day methods of conditioning our athletes.

Having now slept in this tent for 7 months, I can clearly see the training benefit of this. It really works. We initially got it because Nathan needed to adapt to altitude for Hardrock but we have continued to use it since we have seen and felt the benefits to our overall fitness. My resting heart rate is lower, my oxygen capacity has increased, my body fat is lower and I am sure my V02 max has increased as well. Often times we will be running along quite fast and are able to hold a casual conversation and not feel winded at all. This purchase was a huge boon for our supplemental training
