Weight-Loss / Obesity
You will improve your post-exercise calorie burn. The altitude training improves your metabolic rate. After a workout at a higher altitude you will be able to burn more calories over the next 12 – 15 hours, which means you are still burning calories while sitting in front of the television.
You will also be able to gain more results in half the time. Exercising for less time while putting forth more effort will result in greater benefits. Exercising for 30 minutes at a high altitude will give you the same benefits as exercising for 1 hour at sea level.
You will also find that your fat is used more efficiently than being stored. When you are overweight, it is because you have a poor fat and carbohydrate metabolism – your body wants to store the fat instead of using it as energy. Therefore, you have a lower capacity for exercising. Instead of storing the fat, when you add altitude training to your fitness you will enhance your metabolisms ability to burn the stored fat and carbohydrates, giving you greater weight loss results.
