High altitude training comes with benefits
Training and/or living at a higher altitude has proven scientific benefits if you are either training for your next big physical challenge or if you are in the process of recovering from injuries.
Live High, Train Low
This altitude program, where you live/sleep/rest high and work out low (~= sea-level) is the way to increase your red blood cell count. Creating natural EPO allows you to transport more oxygen in your blood, allowing for longer endurance.
The best results happen at 21 days, but there are already benefits as early as 3 days.
Bonus: the cumulative effect
For an optimal effect of altitude training, it’s wise to plan several altitude training sessions in a row. Adapting to altitude is faster and easier the more often an athlete spends time at altitude. This also enhances the effect of an altitude training session each time.
During your high altitude stay
For optimal results, you should spend a minimum of 12 hours a day in a higher altitude. These hours can be spent sleeping, resting or remote working.
Sleeping can be done in the altitude bedrooms, and we have altitude relaxation room with high-speed WiFi for remote working, so you don’t have to take a big leave from work.
After your high altitude stay
If you took the 18 to 21 days option (see graph above), your body is ready for your next physical goal.
The perfect spike happens around day 8 to 10 after your high altitude program. Planned right, this will allow a personal best during your endurance event. The effects last up to 4 weeks (28 days) after your stay at Taeru.
✔ Improve your endurance up to 7% ✔ Increase your haematocrit ✔ Recover faster after your workout
✔ Prevent altitude sickness ✔ Acclimatising to the altitude at home ✔ Maximum enjoyment of your expedition
