Altitude training for your health - regeneration training:

The Spartamedic concept of hypoxia training shows how it can benefit people of all ages and fitness levels. This type of training simulates the effects of training at high altitude with limited oxygen. It can be particularly helpful for older people with mobility or health restrictions, but also for athletes who want to improve their performance by preparing their muscles for lower oxygen levels. In addition, hypoxic training can slow down degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and improve brain function. While training at high altitude can improve fat metabolism and weight loss.

Hypoxia training (simulated altitude training) is systematically used to increase the performance of athletes but also to improve the health of the organism. Altitude training is a proven method for top athletes to increase their performance. What is less well known is that training with reduced oxygen can also help normal people with burnout, stress reduction, diabetes and obesity. To do this, athletes either go to high-altitude training centers, usually around 2,000 meters above sea level, or they use artificial altitude training on the plain, where they train in low oxygen conditions in sports medicine centers or in private use, for example in so-called “oxygen tents”.

In medical terms, the main reason for endurance athletes to attend altitude training camps is to stimulate the production of red blood cells. From the very first hour of altitude training, the kidneys release the hormone erythropoietin, which stimulates blood formation.

The stimulus of the hormone ensures that the oxygen-carrying red blood cells multiply. Furthermore, there are indications that plasma volume and buffer capacity are increased for a certain time after returning from altitude. Last but not least, altitude training is also thought to have a beneficial effect on the size and function of the mitochondria and stimulate the release of growth hormone. Additional stimulation of the respiratory muscles through increased breathing activity.

To ensure that the training effort achieves the desired effects, the oxygen levels are continuously checked using a pulse oximeter on the user’s index finger.


There are also positive experiences with classic stress disorders, such as chronic exhaustion and burnout. The body learns to deal with this reduction and the induced stress, and thus returns to normal conditions. With the help of the basal metabolic rate measurement, we obtain a complete analysis of the metabolism in retirement. We also find out the minimum number of kilocalories you should consume without damaging your metabolism. We use a saliva test to determine the optimum, individual macronutrient requirement.

The Spartamedic hypoxia room allows artificial altitude training up to approx. 5,000m above sea level, theoretically it can be extended up to 8,000m. This is particularly interesting for high-altitude mountaineers who want to shorten their acclimatization for an expedition due to lack of time. With top athletes, Spartamedic goes with extreme intervals of up to 5,000m. For an average endurance workout, the altitude range is 2,300 to 2,600 meters. An easily accessible altitude is defined as 1,300 to 2,300 meters above sea level. For the doctor, artificial altitude training is a suitable tool that he uses with patients in addition to other measures “The high altitude air stimulates the release of serotonin and dopamine. These hormones have a positive effect on our mood and make us feel more balanced. If you are a so-called “frustration eater”, for example, altitude training at Spartmadic can help you to get a better grip on food cravings.


How does hypoxia training support weight loss?

The reason for losing weight through altitude training is that the hormone leptin increases is distributed. This hormone has an appetite-suppressing effect and thus supports the reduction of body fat. It has also been proven that altitude training increases the basal metabolic rate. This means that you can eat more calories without putting on weight. One reason for this is that the hormone leptin is increasingly released, which has an appetite-suppressing effect and can therefore help to reduce body fat. It has also been proven that the basal metabolic rate is increased during altitude training, meaning that you can eat more without putting on weight. However, the exact physiological background to this has not yet been sufficiently researched.
Numerous other positive adaptations have already been observed in the body that are helpful in facial reduction. For example, glucose consumption was significantly increased under hypoxia, which means that the body burns more energy and thus presumably increases the basal metabolic rate. Compared to normal conditions, lactate levels were significantly higher during altitude training and were reduced more slowly, confirming that the body burns more lactate, as lactate is a “waste product” of rapid energy production. In order to stabilize these mechanisms in the body in the long term, regular repetition is necessary, as the body gradually readjusts under normal conditions.

Hypoxia training in Graz: optimize your performance

Hypoxia training, also known as altitude training, is an effective method of increasing physical performance and improving oxygen uptake. At our modern training center in Graz, we offer professional hypoxia training to help you achieve your fitness goals and optimize your performance.

Why is hypoxia training important?

Hypoxia training reduces the oxygen content in the air, which causes the body to train under “altitude conditions”. This process stimulates the production of red blood cells and improves oxygen uptake by the muscles, which leads to increased endurance and performance. Hypoxia training can also help to speed up recovery after intensive training sessions – trust our expertise for your hypoxia training
