In principle, training or sporting activities at high altitudes can offer almost every positive aspect, but there are certain conditions to consider.
One of these is our extensive preliminary examination, we are a certified cardiovascular anti-stress centre and would like to ensure that every customer can really benefit from a stay in our training room.
In addition to a heart stress measurement and ECG course to be able to recognize problems of the heart early, a body scan (measurement of body fat, body water, organ fat and muscle distribution) and a blood pressure measurement are carried out.
- There must be no acute illness or weakening, e.g. due to extreme training
- A basic fitness, i.e. a good basic training condition, is desirable.
- Performance should be known so that you can really control yourself. In most cases listening to the feeling does not fit even without height.
- Competitive athletes should not do block height training (e.g. 2 weeks in a row) without previous experience with this form of training before an important race.
- In case of diseases of the cardiovascular system or respiratory organs, clarification with a doctor is necessary in advance.
- Start of training at deliberately low performance levels
In general, most people and athletes can train or stay in an altitude training room without any problems. The "precautions" that have to be taken should be obligatory for sporty people anyway, also for less active people certain measures should become normal.
We are talking here about an annual check with a doctor, in particular a stress ECG and a functional check of the respiratory system are important here.
In problem situations, e.g. after just survived illness or if one feels complaints a control should then take place from the situation.
The points mentioned here should be carried out regularly irrespective of altitude training - performance is always welcome, but health first.
