What is Air Locker Training?

At the cusp of this year’s announcement of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, awarded to William G. Kaelin Jr., Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza for their discoveries of how cells adapt to oxygen availability – there is no better way to introduce Air Locker Training.

Air Locker Training brings the “mountain to the masses” by providing simulated altitude training, in a commercial environment.    Through scientific research and world-class experts who have trained and mentored athletes and professionals from UFC fighters and NFL players, to Olympians and even astronauts – Air Locker Training was founded based on years of extensive scientific research – mind, body and soul.

Air Locker Training is not just any gym – it’s an altitude atmosphere, with workouts conducted by leading industry trainers, in a group environment.  By controlling the levels of oxygen in the room, your cells are stimulated to adapt to the change in the atmosphere by enhancing how they use the available oxygen to produce energy.

What are the reported benefits?

  • 28% greater metabolic rate
  • 300% greater EPOC after workout
  • 25% greater burn in every workout
  • Exclusive Focus Through Fatigue (FTF) training method delivers research-backed workouts in an altitude environment.
