Throughout the entire acclimatisation period and the rotations up and down high camps, I have to say that I felt extremely well and slept perfectly… Kenton Cool and Tim Mosedale, another British mountaineer with several Everests and Ama Dablams in his CV commented that my adaptation to altitude was surely due to my hypoxic training prior to flying to Nepal. I believe they are correct. So, I wanted to thank you for your support in preparing me for my trip and for greatly contributing to my enjoyment of the journey.

I have used The Altitude Centre and their equipment in preparation for a number of championships with great success. The systems are really great for training, but also during rehabilitation. A really useful kit for elite athletes and those looking for performance gains.
The Altitude Centre has been incredibly supportive in my preparation for both the European Cup Marathon and the Commonwealth Games. The ability to simulate altitude has enabled me to maximise my preparations in a home environment.
For me things are simply….results matter, and results in my field of work means summits. There is no doubt that The Altitude Centre can give you a critical head start in the acclimatisation game for expeditions. Having seen the system work this last expedition to Manaslu (world’s 8th highest mountain), I now see the benefits of training with a hypoxic generator. The advantages for High Altitude Climbing is obvious, I will be using the system before leaving for any expedition in future. Put simply….IT WORKS. There is no doubt that the Altitude Centre can give you a critical head start in the acclimatisation game for expeditions. People don’t go to sea level to 5000m in 3 days but with an Altitude Centre hypoxic generator that’s exactly what we saw on our Manaslu expedition this year. The chance of Summit success can be improved on certain mountains by using the Altitude Centre. I recommend it to anyone thinking of climbing a high altitude mountain.
“We stormed the summit with no symptoms whatsoever, no headaches, nausea, fatigue .. We ate and slept well and our guides were pleased with our health checks. We were the oldest by 25 years in a team of 9 and felt the best; feeling quite smug right now!”

Richard and his team were able to install a high specification system within our existing infrastructure at the National Tennis Centre. The end result is extremely reliable and programmable product that fully meets our needs in terms of both conditioning for performance and rehabilitation / recovery from injury.
Training at altitude is like giving your body a tune up. Through the adaptive process you learn to extract more from each breath – making you more fuel efficient.
Your heart is the pump that circulated Oxygen enriched blood around your body, it can now afford to beat less to maintain your supply.
As you work at a lower rate there is less wear and tear on your internal engine, not just whilst exercising but also for the other 23 hours of the day when you are not.
Having a lower resting heart rate increases its range for when required. You’ll be able to run faster and further. With an enhanced oxygen uptake and utilisation system you recover quicker, enabling you to go again and again.
