The US branch of a New Zealand company has set up a sales office in Hermosa Beach and installed the first simulators inside Velocity Sports Performance Redondo Beach.

io’s state-of-the art technology, purpose-written software and sophisticated high altitude air delivery has taken altitude simulation from the realm of elite athletes and made it available to everyday people.

io altitude training helps with sports performance improving recovery, speed, power and endurance, boosts energy levels and wellbeing, provides relief from a range of medical conditions and results in a stronger and fitter body. Other benefits include a maintenance of fitness during injury periods and pre acclimatization to altitude before a long haul flight or a trip to altitude..

io’s Edward Lodge says the company has developed a program that is appealing to people from all walks of life and is flexible enough to fit into anyone’s schedule. Io’s unique masked based altitude training system replaces the older tent methods and enables io altitude training to be used by a number of people.
