SPORTS Athletes at Tulane train at 10,000 ft. altitude right on campus

The new chamber is from Altitude International. Tulane is the first school in the country to get this model. Air is sucked in from outside, then highly filtered and separated. It is then pumped into a glass enclosed workout room. Your red blood cell count goes up to carry more oxygen as you grow more vessels and muscle mass. Even the cells’ powerhouse structure changes.

“Altitude training will allow the athletes to get to a different plateau of conditioning and it’s the only way you can get there,” explained J.B. Frost, the COO of Altitude International.
