In preparation for the Chicago Marathon, our Well-Fit athletes are turning to Altitude Training as a “boost” to their current program. Well-Fit is home to the first and only altitude training room in the Midwest and athletes are coming from all over Chicago to get an edge. The room is set at 10,500 feet during the week and soars to 14,000 feet on Sundays for those athletes training for big climbs.

Lauren Petty from NBC5 headed over to Well-Fit the week before the Chicago Marathon to try it out first hand and talk to some runners who have had big results so far including Michael Harris and Lisa Plumley.
