    this isn't track specific on this installation, but how long before it catches on with our sport in NCAA athletic programs that have more gold than Croesus?

    Dear Tulane Athletes,
    Just go outside and run in the heat and humidity if you want to improve fitness.

    Maybe they will build one at Hayward Field in the big hole...

    without actually dissecting the whole article with actual science in mind, my instant reaction is that they've been sold some magic beans unless they're spending a significant amount of time in hyperbaria, which I can't imagine this provides.

    Tulane distance runners would benefit significantly if they slept in an altitude chamber considering the fact that New Orleans is below sea level. It's my understanding that living and sleeping at altitude is what's really beneficial, not training at altitude. Of course heat acclimation helps too. Remember Deena Kastor at the 2004 Olympics?

    "The Tulane University altitude chamber training facility will be completed by the end of 2018 and will be located within the basketball team’s Strength & Conditioning Facility."

    Agree with gh and jazz. A couple of hours a week on a treadmill at simulated altitude would seem to add very little. An altitude house like Nike has in Portland...eating, sleeping, studying, watching TV, being there 80+ hours a week.... might make a difference.

    Living in Colorado high country definitely helps.
    Running on a H-A treadmill will help will help in proportion to the number of minutes spent on the treadmill divided by 1440. Perhaps a dab more because of the effort applied via-a-vis oxygen transport required.

    Definitely something to acclimatizing. Even when I was a runner, my runs in MIle High Denver sucked.. and at 14,000" on top of Pikes Peak, I could hardly breathe
