Altitude Camp

SOUTHERN UTAH HIGH ALTITUDE CROSS COUNTRY CAMP, 5,700 TO 11,000 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL SOUTHERN UTAH UNIVERSITY HIGH ALTITUDE RUNNING CAMP IS THE BEST IN ALL THE COUNTRY FOR ITS INFORMATION, BEAUTY, WIDE RANGE OF TRAINING ALTITUDES AND UNBEATABLE PRICE. THE CAMP IS OPEN TO FEMALES AND MALES AGES 13 TO 19.

THE ATHLETES WILL BE PLACED INTO TRAINING GROUPS ACCORDING TO GENDER, AGE, AND LEVEL. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER CAMP. THIS CAMP IS ABOUT INDIVIDUALIZED HELP FOR EACH ATHLETES TRAINING.

THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND HIGH ALTITUDE TRAINING IS THAT IF YOU CAN ACCLIMATE YOUR BODY TO TRAIN AT LEVELS WITH LESS OXYGEN YOU WILL ACTUALLY INCREASE YOUR RED BLOOD CELLS. THE INCREASE OF RED BLOOD CELLS WILL PREVENT THE BUILD-UP OF LACTIC ACID AND KEEP YOUR HEART RATE LOWER EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE PUSHING YOURSELF HARDER THAN AT ALTITUDE. THIS TRAINING CAN GIVE YOU THE EDGE TO A PERFECT SEASON. JUST AS IMPORTANT THE ATHLETES WILL GAIN VALUABLE INFORMATION CONCERNING NCAA CLEARING HOUSE, INJURY PREVENTION, NUTRITION, AND HELPFUL TOOLS TO DEAL WITH THE MENTAL GAME OF RUNNING.

WHEN NOT TRAINING OR IN WORKSHOPS ACTIVITIES ARE A BIG PART OF THE ATHLETE’S CAMP EXPERIENCE. CAMP ACTIVITIES RANGE FROM MOVIES, WATER GAMES TO THE TONY AWARD UTAH SHAKESPEAREAN FESTIVAL GREEN SHOW.

THIS IS THE BEST HIGH ALTITUDE RUNNING CAMP FOR YOUR MONEY. WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW MORE?
