Altitude Training

The biggest Alpine open-air gym is located in Livigno, Alta Valtellina.

Training is a complex process that includes various activities. Nowadays the altitude training is an essential part for improving athletic performance, it is actually free of doping and enhances both the athletic performance by acting on the oxygen transport mechanisms and the adaptations increasing for example the reflex activity.

Training in the mountains is good not only for the body, but also for the mind. Thanks to the dry weather conditions and the fresh air you can train in high altitude relaxing and regenerating your mind surrounded by the pristine nature.

Carry out an athletic training at high altitude is particularly suitable in those sports that require intense and constant aerobic activity. For this reason, this year the professional cycling team Tinkoff-Saxo has chosen Livigno as summer base camp to carry out the preparation at high altitude. Several National Federations have selected Livigno as reference point for their high altitude training in the Livigno Lake. Also the runners, who want to test their running skills, really appreciate Livigno and its mountain trails and pedestrian paths.

To further improve your training performance Livigno offers you Aquagranda Livigno Sport Fitness Centre, a sports center with a fitness room of 350 square meters, completely equipped with Technogym machines and a semi-Olympic swimming pool built with Myrtha technology.
