What is Altitude Training and Why is it Excellent For All Levels Of Fitness ?
Altitude Training, also known as Hypoxic Training, involves breathing low oxygen air in order to increase athletic performance, pre-acclimatize to high altitudes, and improve health and wellness.
Exposure to low oxygen air forces the body to adapt by making more effective use of oxygen, which results in greater oxygen delivery to the muscles, tissues, and brain. This translates to better physical performance at both high altitude and sea level, as well as a greater overall tolerance for high altitude locations.
The Effects of Altitude Training
The following physiological benefits have been shown to occur as a result of altitude training:
•Decreased Resting Heart Rate (RHR)
•Decreased Blood Pressure (BP)
•Increased Erythropoietin (EPO) Production
•Increased Maximal Oxygen
•Consumption (VO2 Max)
•Increased Lactate Threshold
•Increased Mitochondrial Production
•Increased Fat Metabolism
How Archetype Altitude Systems Simulates Altitude
Our systems generate normobaric hypoxic air to replicate the oxygen levels found at altitudes up to 17,000ft. This is achieved by drawing in ambient air, separating oxygen molecules to meet the desired O2 percentage, then outputting a continuous flow of fresh, filtered, hypoxic air for breathing.
This allows altitude training to be performed right here in Birmingham Alabama.

Natalies story of how she was terrified to visit a chiropractor, until she realized the benefits and relief it provided for her chronic back pain.
This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case? This post is specifically about why medical and functional blood analysis is different and absolutely needs to be understood. Medicine evaluates "normal"/non-pathological blood values. Archetype uses "optimal" blood values which are smaller in a acceptable range but are compared other lab values to determine the cause of your issue..
