The University’s qualified, knowledgeable, and experienced staff will guide you through the preparation, training and recovery process from heat and altitude exposure. Training using either heat or altitude is an incredibly time efficient method to increase key physiological parameters. The chamber is only one of a handful in New Zealand with the ability to combine both heat and altitude in the one room. Our resident experts are experienced in both heat and altitude training and will ensure you have the most efficient sessions to maximise your training time.
