Through HYPO2’s long-standing partnership with Northern Arizona University, HYPO2 teams swim in a new 10-lane, 50m pool on the NAU campus, mostly in dedicated long course training slots set aside specifically for visiting elite swimmers. HYPO2’s swim team program has historically and consistently hosted the best clubs and teams in the world with altitude training camps in Flagstaff producing more international Olympic swimmers than any other like training site in the world.
400m & 300m Tracks
Flagstaff, Arizona is home to a total of four 400m outdoor tracks, making it one of the most unique altitude training locales in the world and Hypo2’s top pick for runners interested in training at altitude. The most heavily utilized tracks that HYPO2 provides access to include an 8 lane, 400m, all-weather outdoor track encircling an NCAA-regulation size soccer (football) pitch and a 6-lane, 300m mondo-surface indoor track, located inside the Walkup Skydome so runners can train during winter months as well.
Some of HYPO2’s most historically high-profile clients (Australian Rules Football teams like the Carlton Blues, as well as 2014 Australian National Rugby League Premiers, the South Sydney Rabbitohs), have made extensive use of altitude-based training fields utilized through HYPO2’s partnership with Northern Arizona University. There are a number of field options available, well-suited for a variety of field sports, which include an outdoor field complex featuring 2 artificial turf fields, an outdoor field complex featuring 2 natural grass fields and an indoor field of artificial grass.
Gyms & Weight Rooms
Whether athletes need more traditional strength and conditioning facilities to complement their altitude training, or more highly-specialized facilities suitable for sport-specific exercises or more explosive lifts like those in Olympic weightlifting, HYPO2 has phenomenal and numerous options, both on the university campus and off (including HYPO2’s own strength and conditioning area used for designing many athletes’ S&C programs).
Athletic training areas are available as well through HYPO2’s partnership with Northern Arizona University which house recovery/regeneration options (electrical stim, ultrasound, contrast baths, etc.). Access to all of these can easily be arranged and cost is negotiable based on needs and numbers of athletes.
Hypo2 completely understands our needs and knows what it takes to create the best possible training environment for us. I think it would have been very difficult to take our Olympic Gold Medals without their support.
