Aspire by Fitcorp Asia is THE FIRST altitude training facility in South east Asia, and the very first in Bangkok Thailand.Securing Fitcorp Asia’s position as the number one trainign facility in the region.What is Altitude Training?Altitude Training
is exercising at altitude exposure. Altitude Training System
is the advance technology that simulate low oxygen level of high altitude and bring it to your home.Exercising at high altitude
causes physiological adaptations, such as increased erythropoietin (EPO) levels which stimulates the production of red blood cell which carry oxygen to the muscles. Up to the point, the more oxygen carried to muscles the better you can improve athletic performance within less time.Benefits of Altitude Training:
By successfully integrating altitude training in to your routine you will be gaining benefits such as –
- Time efficient training
- increased metabolism
- Increased self esteem
- Positive mental attitude
- Improved sleep
- Improved cardio vascular health
Exercise should help you enjoy life and enhance that lifestyle you deserve. Altitude training is time efficient and extremely productive. The low stress way to achieve your goals
.You don’t need to be climbing Kilimanjaro or skiing in Aspen to benefit from altitude training however after conducting our training routines you may decide too!Individual, personal training
sessions or group sessions such as Alti – FIT or Alti BOX will motivate and help make this effective training method become an enjoyable part of your lifestyle.Training at Altitude
has been used to improve athletic performance for decades. Since the Mexico Olympic Games (when the effects of Altitude on Sports Performance were first made obvious) many teams and individuals use Altitude Training as part of their preparation.Benefits for Sports Performance include:
- Enhanced power output and speed
- Improved strength and endurance
- Increased exercise-till-exhaustion (ETE) time
- Reduced recovery time after exertion
- Decreased resting heart-rate and blood pressure
- Maintenance of cardiovascular fitness when injured
- Diminished overall fatigue
products allow this powerful tool to be accessed by athletes of all standards without the expense and time required to travel to real altitude.Training at Altitude has been used to improve athletic performance for decades. Since the Mexico Olympic Games (when the effects of Altitude on Sports Performance were first made obvious) many teams and individuals use Altitude Training as part of their preparation.ATS products allow this powerful tool to be accessed by athletes of all standards without the expense and time required to travel to real altitude. Simulated Altitude Training (SAT) also allows a mix of altitude and quality training to maximise performance. Recent research is quantifying the reasons and physiology behind the effects of Altitude training, and ATS is working with expert coaches and sports scientists to develop optimal training protocols.SAT will help athletes of all standards reach their optimal performance potential: improvements in repeat sprint effort; oxygen carrying capacity of the blood and other cardio-vascular improvements are all facilitated by altitude training. SAT is a time-efficient and scientifically based training tool that can form part of any athletes training program- from the elite to the weekend warrior.Hypoxic training improves a number of important parameters in sports performance. Recent research using Simulated Altitude Training (SAT) systems has shown improved performance at sea level following a block of SAT in elite cyclists (1). Other studies (2, 3, 4) demonstrate positive effects such as improved repeat sprint performance, increased anabolic hormonal responses and increased red blood cell mass following SAT training programs.The mechanisms for this are still being researched, but oxygen delivery and utilisation at a number of levels (mechanical and cellular) as well a improved buffering capacity have been demonstrated (5,6,7) . Most of the immediate benefits to sports performance involve a qualitative improvement in the physiological systems related to oxygen delivery and energy utilisation.The most significant results in sports performance come from effectively integrated SAT programs, with individual monitoring and progression. ATS has the resources and experience to assist any athlete achieve the best possible results from Simulated Altitude Training.

Altitude Training Research and Studies:In Spain and Australia, simulated altitude exposure is being used in ant-aging and health spas. Extensive scientific research is recently explaining these effects, but they relate to stimulating HIF-1, a powerful trigger to the body’s hormonal system.
A summary of known benefits from simulated altitude exposure
- To compliment the changes that is happening internally e.g. cell renewal, cell metabolism, increase in collagen, elastin and fibroblasts.
- Youth enhancing, correcting skin imbalances, increasing the lymphatic system which stimulates your immunity to minimize the risk of getting sick.
- Increased levels of dopamine and serotonin, associated with positive mood and calmness.
- Improved metabolic rate and free fatty acid metabolism; useful in obesity management and weight loss.
- Enhanced hormonal responses in males (Hgh) and females (oestrogen) in the over 40 year age population.
- Correcting hormonal balances which are a huge contributing factor to problematic skin.
- Significant anti-oxidant effects proven reducing free radicals presence with multiple benefits (Anti-aging tissue protection).
- Improved sleep quality, general energy levels and concentration.
