When pain does equal gain

Research supported by The Altitude Centre has shown that repeated sprint training in a hypoxic (low oxygen) environment leads to performance gains click here for the full article.

The paper, written by Harvey Galvin and lecturers from our partners London South Bank University, tested the effects of repeated sprint training on rugby players in an Altitude Centre chamber.

The study found that 12 repeated sprint sessions in hypoxia resulted in significant improvements in high intensity interval sessions, and gains were found over four weeks of the programme.

If you’re attending our run, cycle or row classes, you can be confident that in a month of training (twice a week), you’ll be stronger, fitter, faster, leaner, meaner and all together that one step closer to being a superhero.
