Altitude Training, a must for endurance athletes and a game changer for everyone!
The Summit by Next Gen provides a controlled environment where high altitude conditions are safely simulated through oxygen regulation.
In A Nutshell
In high-altitude environments, breathing delivers less oxygen to muscles, intensifying each workout tremendously. Getting used to breathing “thinner” air can significantly increase athletic performance at lower altitudes.
Simulated Altitude training is the proven way to train for shorter periods with less impact on your body, whilst still achieving the great physical benefits that you will on our gym floor.
By training at altitude your body is having to work harder to recover, once you leave the room your body will repair and burn calories for 6-8 hours post exercise just like a H.I.I.T class.
For endurance athletes, altitude training can make the crucial difference between achieving a podium finish and ending up in the middle of the pack, but there’s an impressive variety of additional health benefits for everyone.
Training at high altitude can accelerate fat loss, regulate hormone production, improve sleep quality and help with a myriad of other health conditions too.
So whether you training for your next event, or if you have a busy life and your joints just aren’t what they used to be the Summit needs to be a part of your weekly training program.
