CVAC Cellular Training

What is CVAC?

CVAC, Cyclic Variations in Adaptive Conditioning, applies a pattern of pressure changes to the body at a cellular level by simulating changes in altitude. This gives the body a passive workout while boosting circulation, increasing lymphatic drainage, building immunity and more.

What Happens During a CVAC Session?

You will sit back and relax in the CVAC Pod. As the pressure changes, there are changes in the temperature and density of the air. There will be brief periods of warmer air and of cooler air. You will need to clear your ears as the pressure changes. In a CVAC Session, air is drawn out of the CVAC Pod, creating a low-pressure environment, and making the air thinner and cooler. Fresh, filtered air is dynamically returned to the CVAC Pod; this varies the density of the air.

  • Increase VO2 MAX

  • Boost Mitochondrial Production

  • Remove Metabolic Waste

  • Enhance Cellular Functioning


How safe is the CVAC Process?

Individuals at all levels of fitness seeking to improve their physical conditioning have taken CVAC™ Sessions totaling thousands of hours. Ear-clearing techniques are learned prior to CVAC Sessions to reduce the chances of any ear discomfort.

How does the CVAC Process exercise your body?

Dynamic changes to low-pressure air inside the CVAC Pod provide varying loads patterned to cause optimal adaptation to the body’s energy systems.

Is the CVAC Process altitude training?

No, it is not altitude training.
The goal of the CVAC Process is not to cause an acclimatization response. The goal is to provide adaptation-based physical conditioning.
The CVAC Process exposes the body to changes in pressure, which set up waves of tension and resolution. The body’s adaptation response to these changes naturally and inevitably results in improved physical conditioning. This adaptation response is comparable to what happens when a person participates in physical activities that facilitate body adaptation such as swimming, yoga, interval and resistance training.  All of these processes employ tension and resolution.

Why is a CVAC Pod different from a hyperbaric chamber?

The CVAC Pod involves a low-pressure, dynamically varying environment. Fresh air is pumped in and pulled out. The hyperbaric chamber provides a static, high-pressure environment that is of high oxygen content.

What benefits can I gain from the CVAC Process?

Benefits similar to those gained through traditional aerobic and anaerobic exercise; allowing you to achieve better oxygen utilization, improved anaerobic energy production and improved metabolic waste removal.

Peer-Reviewed Journal Articles

A blinded, placebo-controlled study showed the CVAC Process mirrored the effects of high-intensity exercise on glycolytic energy production in non-diabetic middle-aged men at risk for metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. The men in the study participated in less than three hours of exercise per week.
