At more than 2 000 m, altitude is ideal for reaping all the benefits of oxygenation. As air pressure diminishes, oxygen becomes rarer.
After a few days, the human body adapts by producing more red blood cells. The circulation of oxygen in the blood becomes more efficient.
Once you return to your normal altitude, your endurance levels are significantly improved. It’s not surprising that many great athletes train in high altitude before important competitions.
This summer, they will come in Tignes for an altitude training !
