Altitude Services Pty. Ltd. General Manager Rod Cedaro is pictured here with the latest prototype individual use altitude simulator.

“Here at Altitude Services we’re always trying to push the envelope with product design and refinement. Our engineering team has been working on the latest technology around altitude simulation and has come up with this prototype and for a first draft it is great, but not yet perfect. We’ve reviewed the system, provided some feedback and it is now back in the hands of the engineers to refine. I’m certain once this, yet to be name system, is finalised, we’ll have the world’s most advanced personal use altitude simulator in our stock range” recently commented Cedaro.

Altitude training for triathletes - Triathlon & Multisport magazine

If you are considering whether altitude training might be for you, TMSM‘s contributing editor Rod Cedaro has compiled the following report that will help you make an informed decision.

As an exercise physiologist who’s played in this space for the best part of 20 years, I’ve experienced first-hand the benefits associated with altitude exposure. While these are not huge, they are certainly significant – particularly at the top end. Altitude training won’t turn a donkey into a world-beating thoroughbred, but, if you’re training and recovering well, got your nutrition down pat, have optimised your equipment and are at your optimal race weight, then altitude training could provide the edge over your competitors.

It is no coincidence that not so long ago in the athletic world, every world record in the 800 metres to the marathon was held by an athlete who either lived or at least trained at altitude or used some form of altitude simulation routinely as part of their training regimen. Locations such as Boulder, St Moritz and Flagstaff have become synonymous with endurance sport training.
