Maximise Your Performance
Altitude training is ideal preparation for maximising your personal performance. We can increase your endurance, speed and improve your recovery. We can also assist in rehabilitation following injury.
Altitude training is no longer just a tool for elite athletes. Research has shown that it can be used to improve the performance for athletes of all abilities, across a wide range of sports.
Option 1 - Exercise Consultation: £129
Session duration 60 minutes
Assessment of your exercise performance at altitude. Useful as a benchmark for future comparison and to set the optimal training zones when altitude training.
During your consultation we’ll take you through a number of basic health checks including, blood pressure, lung function & breathing reflex before moving onto two ramp tests, one at sea level, the other at approx. 2,700m. The consultation will take place on either a bike or treadmill and provides clients with an estimated VO2 Max (96.3% accuracy) based on heart rate variability and a comparison of performance at the two altitudes.
Option 2 – Exercise Sessions: from £20
Hypoxic exercise sessions will let you experience what it is like to exercise at altitude. Just like fitness the more you do, the better you get. To pre-acclimatise for a trip to altitude we recommend regular sessions at least 3 weeks in advance of your trip.
Individual Training Sessions
These individual sessions let you go at your own pace, to perform your own session plans. We can also provide expert coaching on a weekly basis to help tailor your training to your goals.
Class Cycle or Run Sessions
Its always fun to be part of a class. Be mentally prepared for what is a short, but hard session
Add a Personal Trainer
Our expert trainers can assist you through your workout, adding extra exercises to build upon your core altitude acclimatisation.
Option 3 – IHE Sessions: from £20
These sessions utilise the IHE protocol. IHE stands for Intermittent Hypoxic Exposure, a technique of breathing short bursts of mountain air (up to 6,500m) through a mask, alternated with normal air. IHE is the quickest way to adapt to low oxygen. What's more, no exercise is required!
The pre acclimatisation sessions kick start the adaptive process to enable you to cope with low oxygen and to be more efficient with the available air, the main adaptation is at a cellular level with improved mitochondrial function.
A 10 session package is our strong recommendation for a minimum amount of sessions ahead of trips to altitude or to help you achieve your health and sporting goals.
Option 4 - Rent a system for home use: from £225 per month
Rent a machine from The Altitude Centre and you can experience the benefits of altitude training up to 6,500m from the comfort of your own home.
Options available are either IHE (intermittent hypoxic exposure) , exercise or sleep formats. Full training and advice is provided. You can also cobine the 3 different training formats below from the one machine.
