Oxygen supply is critical to all physical activity, but especially in competitive athletics. The ability to use, uptake and deliver o2 throughout the body separeates the everday athleteie from an elite athlete. The benefits of altitude training in sports performance enhancement are well known and researched – and that’s the main reason the US Olympic Training Center is located at Altitude.
By sleeping or exercising in a low-oxygen environment, the body makes adaptations to improve oxygen delivery to tissues and muscles, resulting in greater muscular endurance, improved power output and faster recovery.
Whether you’re a power-based athlete or endurance athlete, sleeping or training will give you the adaptations necessary to enhance athletic performance!
