Altitude Training Athlete Testimonials



"...a superior product."
"After extensive review of other altitude simulation products on the market, the NIKE Team's decision to choose the Colorado Mountain Room was based on its superiority. It was evident that the CAT system is not only backed by extensive research, but also by a board of leading researchers in the field. It is proven that altitude training directly impacts an athlete's performance level, and we felt the safety and convenience features were added benefits for NIKE athletes. We didn't just buy an altitude training system, we bought a team of professionals who provide guidance and support for utilizing a superior product."
