Camp Details: Give your training a mid-season boost and gain that performance edge for long course & short course racing by training and sleeping at altitude during our specific altitude training camp. Ideal for all those racing events from January onward. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to train and learn from experienced Half and Full Ironman Coaches and experts in the industry of training at altitude. Dates: This years training camp format is very flexible – choose as many or as few days as you like to attend (minimum of three days/nights). Check your calendar and lock in your days early, as spots will fill fast. Day 1 – Saturday 30th December 2017 (travel to Mt Beauty for the Gap ride. Weather dependent) Days 2-9 – Refer to Draft Itinerary – Big mountain rides, altitude runs, lake and pool swims Day 9 – Sunday 7th January 2018 (leave for home) Cost & Accommodation: Just $99 for 1 day discounted the more days you stay. Includes coaching and accommodation at the Geelong Ski Club Lodge! Food is at your own cost but a full functional kitchen and fridges are available as well as various local restaurants. Booking **When booking please let us know in the special requirements which days/nights you will be staying and training with us.** *Please note, that once payment is made there is a 50% refund policy up to 15th December 2017.  After this date, no refunds are available.

There are many changes that occur in the body when exposed to high altitude which help provide a competitive edge including improved oxygen delivery to the muscles and energy utilisation in the body.
Being at altitude acclimatises the body to the lower level of oxygen available in the atmosphere, which in turn improves the delivery of oxygen to the muscles. For any type of exercise lasting longer than a few minutes, the body must use oxygen to generate energy. This type of exercise is called aerobic exercise, meaning with oxygen. The more efficient the body is at utilising and delivering oxygen, means it can lead to improved performance.

The body naturally produces a hormone called erythropoetin (EPO) which stimulates the production of red blood cells which carry oxygen to the muscles. Up to a point, the more blood cells you have, the more oxygen you can deliver to your muscles – and altitude training promotes the increase of red blood cell mass in our bodies. There are also a number of other changes that happen during acclimatisation which may help athletic performance, including an increase in the number of small blood vessels, an increase in buffering capacity (ability to manage the build-up of waste ‘lactic’ acid) and changes in the microscopic structure and function of the muscles themselves.

So as your body improves its efficiency, you gain a competitive edge when returning back to sea level as your body becomes more efficient in delivering oxygen to the working muscles.

Additional benefits of altitude training
• Increased V02 max (max rate of oxygen usage)
• Enhanced power output, speed, strength and endurance through efficiency
• Increased exercise-till-exhaustion (ETE) time
• Reduced recovery time after exertion
• Decreased resting heart-rate and blood pressure
• Diminished overall fatigue
• Higher metabolism, greater weight loss
• As an added bonus – it is time efficient training! (it’s 20% harder to train at altitude than at sea level!)
