Launch: Altium i10 Collaboration

Posted August 25, 2016 by in Uncategorized

Today we are proud to announce our collaboration with Altium i10 – the personal hypoxic device (altitude simulator) we tested earlier this year.  We are now able to offer our contacts, coaching clients and training centre guests, exclusive discount codes to reduce the initial outlay of purchasing the device, and the cartridges it requires over time.

We are able to offer a 10% discount off the full consumer price of the Altium i10 device starter pack (the device and 5 cartridges), and a free extra pack of 5 cartridges on top of that.

This equates to a £100 savings.

Our coaches can now also offer training programmes which integrate periodised usage of the Altium i10, devised in consultation with Altium i10’s consultant physiologist.

We had exciting results with our amateur tests of the device, back in June.  You can read the blogs we wrote at the time, and see how we saw improvement across Functional Threshold Power, VO2 Max, as well as on-the-road measures like hill climb segment times, and year-on-year TT race improvement of 30 seconds over 10 kilometres.  The three posts we put out about the Altium are available below:
