Professional sports including altitude training? From now on you don't have to travel far to go to a foreign country to train at a high altitude. altitude training can. The hotel Fitland Dormylle in the Brabantse Mill (the Netherlands) offers you the 'mountains' to sleep in close to home. Since the beginning of May 2012, Hotel Dormylle has been the first hotel in Europe to have 15 rooms equipped with an altitude generator to adjust the oxygen percentage in the air. In this way, the climatic conditions in these altitude rooms can be perfectly simulated as they are high in the Alps. Ideal for your altitude training close to home.
High altitude training has been common practice among top athletes for years. Staying at artificial altitude ensures, among other things, more red blood cells and therefore increased oxygen intake, reduced muscle fatigue and faster recovery. This has a positive effect on your performance. However, altitude training also has a positive effect on your general health. For example, patients who are about to undergo an operation can strengthen their condition thanks to a stay in an altitude chamber, which makes recovery quicker after the operation. It is also good against asthma and diabetes.
You no longer have to travel to training facilities in the valley
Recent research has shown that the best results of an altitude training are achieved when sleeping at a height of 2,500 meters and training at a height below 1,250 meters (most noticeably sea-sickness). The Fitland Hotel offers immediate benefits here compared to traditional mountain altitude training. The low oxygen level is set and outside the room the oxygen percentage is 20.9% (sea level). You no longer need to take a trip to training facilities in the valley, as these are available at Fitland, outside or in the vicinity.
