When the Olympic Games were held at altitude in Mexico City, it was evident that endurance competitors who lived at altitude had an over their sea-level counterparts. The subsequent emergence of Kenya and Ethiopia as distance-running superpowers has suggests that those who train at altitude, not only perform better at altitude, but also at sea-level. Altitude training is now widely used by elite endurance athletes as a way of maximising their performance.
AltitudeTrainingCamps.com aims to collate information about the best
places to do altitude training, and to provide details about camps and training centres at those locations. Altitude Training
Camps.com is a supplementary resource to Notes from higher grounds: An altitude training guide for endurance athletes, a book which was published by Kukimbia Huru Publishing in December 2013.
In the future, AltitudeTrainingCamps.com will be extending to providing training camps at altitude for athletes of all levels. More information to follow.
