High Altitude Performance Centre Kühtai at 2,000 metres above sea level

I look after the Kühtai high-altitude performance centre in summer as a sports physician. For all those who want to achieve more athletically, the secret lies in the combination of the best training conditions and the altitude. This combination leads to significantly improved athletic results. At over 2,000 metres above sea level, reserves are formed in the body that would otherwise not be available. These reserves are a decisive advantage in competition.
