Exposure to
hypoxic conditions

Exposure to hypoxic conditions for several weeks could promote various physiological adaptations that are ultimately advantageous for endurance performance. Over the last few decades, altitude training has gained much popularity among endurance athletes of all levels seeking to improve their performance at sea level. Nowadays, altitude training is virtually considered
“a must” in most elite-level endurance athletes’ training program.
For altitude training to be beneficial and effective, several guidelines should be followed in terms of pre-altitude preparation, living and training “elevation”, duration of exposure to hypoxia (hours/day and number of days), and more. For this reason, the Sylvan Adams Sports Institute offers a wide range of services aimed to optimize each athlete’s adaptations during and following altitude training.

Individualized training recommendations during the camp.

Daily monitoring of physiological markers throughout the duration of stay at the hypoxic hotel.

Measurement of hemoglobin mass – gold standard for assessing hematological adaptations with chronic hypoxic exposure.

Consultation and/or a cooking workshop with an accredited sports dietician for nutritional recommendations specific for a long duration stay at the hypoxic facilities.

Lab-based testing before and after hypoxic training, such as: maximal O2 uptake (VO2max), thresholds test, body composition and oxyhemoglobin saturation.
