Frequently Asked Questions


Simulated altitude is a greater challenge on the body, but should otherwise be a comfortable environment to exercise in.
The air in room or mask is quite dry (around 15% Relative Humidity) so hydration before, during and after exercise is particularly important.
There is also a constant stream of fresh altitude (low oxygen) air flowing in room or mask.

The minimum training time requirement is 30min sessions. The maximum, 90min. Training protocols alter based on the Baseline Assessment results, training block and training goals

Generally, the minimum requirement to achieve altitude acclimation is two 30-minutes sessions a week over one month. After a Baseline Assessment, Peak Altitude Training coaches will be able to give you a much better idea of the amount of training and altitude exposure needed.

Our classes are very time efficient. No Altitude group session is more than 35 minutes in length.
High altitude training will speed up everything you will get normally from training at sea level along with other benefits such as burning more after you train, less impact on our bodies and joints.

We are very flexible with our Personal Training Packages and Peak Altitude Training Memberships
Some packages require a 12 week commitment and can not be changed or altered. An Altitude coach will work with you to determine the most appropriate package for you and your training goals

This should be monitored and intensity and/or altitude may need to be reduced.
Other contributing factors may include low energy levels of dehydration before the training has begun. It is not uncommon to see these natural side effects from the altitude training.

It does affect your other training, therefore during the Base Line setup disclosure of current training program is important to determine structure the training protocol.
In addition, you should account for additional stress prior, during and after sessions by increasing fluid intake. Adequate rest between sessions will also be important.
