Scientists have been working for decades to understand why people living and training at higher altitudes tend to perform better than athletes who do not. The answer is clear, the bodyÂs ability to use oxygen is improved after it adapts to high altitudes.
Many athletes spend many weeks a year at high altitude training camps, or even sleep in special altitude training tents costing as much as $10,000, trying to obtain the benefits of this quirk of nature.
AltiPower Brings Altitude Training to Your Living Room
AltiPower provides all of the benefits of altitude training, but from the comfort of your home. Weighing in at about five pounds, with no noise, moving parts or electrical connection, it can be used easily by anyone and is typically used while relaxing in a chair, reading a book or watching television.
There are many benefits to altitude training, including the following:
Â The bodyÂs ability to use oxygen is enhanced through an increase in hemoglobin
Â There is an increase in lung capacity
Â The immune system is improved
Â There is a decrease in time needed to recover between workouts
Â There is a decrease in tiredness
There are many other benefits as well, but a key advantage of this training is that these improvements in health and performance are not a side effect of drugs. For athletes at any level looking to enhance performance without risking damage to their bodies or their reputations, altitude training works by breathing air, and the benefits are well documented.
Why Use AltiPower
Altitude training used to be the domain of the rich and elite athletes, and those who were lucky enough to be born or live near mountains. Cyclists regularly live and train in the Pyrenees Mountains for weeks in the spring to prepare their aerobic systems for the rigors of racing. Mountain climbers spend weeks of their vacation time adapting to altitude prior to climbing big mountains, and while many skiers do no altitude training before hitting the slopes, they do go through the first few days on the high slopes with headaches or even illness until their body adapts. Those who do not adapt properly prior to risky adventures are susceptible to illness and injury, even death.
AltiPower is a cost effective way to improve aerobic fitness for those athletes who want to improve their performance, or reduce their time ÂwaitingÂ on a mountain side, or seeking to prevent mountain sickness while they are on ski vacation. It can also be used by the general public to improve cardiovascular fitness if you donÂt want to, or maybe canÂt spend so much time on exercise machines.
The AltiPower Personal Hypoxicator is an innovative new device which allows individuals to improve their aerobic fitness from home at a low cost. It is ideal for athletes who are looking to improve their performance, increase their immune system, or reduce their recover time between workouts; it is helpful for the traveler who is looking to prepare for altitude or improve their immune system; and it is appealing to those looking to improve wellness without drugs.
The AltiPower machine is sold in two configurations, the AltiPower Pro which retails for U$1299 and the AltiPower Advanced which retails for U$999. The product is available online at the PeakXL website, and through a select list of retailers.
