WHO WE ARE
HYPO2 is a high performance management organization centered around a world-renowned altitude training program and a collaboration of best-in-class high performance sport professionals. Our team is entirely focused on producing nothing less than the very best altitude training camps in the world, seamlessly integrating core training camp needs like room and board with high quality training venues and a vast array of high performance, training camp-related services, all centrally coordinated by sport management staff experienced in meeting the needs of elite (and emerging elite) athletes.
The community of Flagstaff (7000 ft / 2100m elevation) began hosting elite athletes who were preparing for the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City and who were seeking an altitude environment in which to prepare for high profile national and international competitions. As such activity and interest in altitude training continued to grow over the next few decades, the Center for High Altitude Training at Northern Arizona University (NAU) opened in 1994 on the NAU campus in order for the community to better serve this athlete population.
From 1995 to 2008, the Center for High Altitude Training established itself as one of the preeminent organizations to coordinate altitude-based training camps, garnering a worldwide reputation for excellence on both the service and facility front. In 2009, the Center closed largely due to the university’s budget reduction and HYPO2, made up of staff who’d worked for NAU, was immediately formed to pick up where the Center had left off.
Since 2009, HYPO2 has continued to expand on the offerings of the NAU-based program, refining the production and management of altitude training camps in Flagstaff, serving more and more elite athletes from more and more countries, and keeping Flagstaff front and center as the best possible place on the planet for altitude training.
