Has anybody had experience with one before, I was not aware you could simulate it.

I recently read 'Faster' by Michael Hutchinson.

He has one and goes on to describe his use of it in quite a bit of detail.

I would recommend picking up the book, its quite insightful into anyone interested in what its like to train as a professional athlete.

Overall he was never actually sure of the benefits....... but he got it just in case it gave him some slight edge.

Quite pricy at over 2k, fr something that may or may not give an added benefit.

If you are looking for an easy way to get fitter, I would say skate harder for longer Wink

You could try an altitude training mask for a fraction of the price to simulate altitude training and get some hypoxic benefits. Bonus addition that you look like Bane while working out.

The reviews on Amazon seem quite positive...

Buy a plastic bag and put it over your head. Be cheaper.

You could get a rather good ski holiday for that, including both altitude and exercise.
