The South Sydney Rabbitohs have made a fantastic start to the Australian NRL, defeating the Sydney Roosters 28-10 in last nights season opener. The Rabbitohs have made full use of their new ATS 10 person altitude room since it's installation in late December. ATS equipment and training protocols could prove the telling factor in early round matches.
Head Coach Michael Maguire and High Performance Manager Troy Thomson have been instrumental in giving their team access to state of the art training technology. The team see real value in ATS solutions, allowing the team to train at up to 5,000m simulated altitude. This type of training ensures peak physical condition as well as assisting injured players get back on the park sooner.
The Rabbitohs, along with Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and the New Zealand Warriors, have called on ATS to supply simulated altitude rooms and training protocols for the 2013 pre-season. They join a number of NRL teams already getting the benefit of ATS equipment including 2012 Premiers Melbourne Storm.
