The Focus is on You

At the end of February / start of March we're holding a Group camp for up to 12 Triathletes, aiming to maximise and boost your winter training, so you head into the 2020 season with more fitness and form than ever before. You can choose to come for one week starting any day from Friday 29th / Saturday 1st.

Our camp accommodation is at the SurfZone apartments, literally overlooking the beach.

At the start of the week the programme will be heavily biased towards analysis and technique, so we uncover potential issues in your swimming stroke, cycling style and run technique. From this we get an understanding of what you need to concentrate on to improve.

The first 2 days will concentrate on analysis and technique, after that we will begin building speed while you retain that good technique, so you're comfortable and competitive in 2020.

running over hurdles

The longest cycle will be a potential 3 hours, or 4 hours for Ironman athletes. Most of the other rides will concentrate on specific aspects of your racing and training that will help you get the most out of your training in the UK.

Running with good technique is just as important as swimming with good technique, so the analysis done on the first day is extremely important. From that we slowly increase the distance you run but keep varying the pace, so you maintain good form whether you're running at speed or at a recovery pace.

With Tui linking directly from the UK, TAP and TACV flying from Lisbon, Washington(DC), Boston, Rome, Madrid and Paris there is a good variety of flights traveling every day to Sal, direct or by linking to one of those cities. The daily TAP flight from Lisbon normally connects with an evening TAP flight from London. That means you should be able to arrive on any day you want, ready for the camp start the next day.

You can be on your own, to get a complete 1-2-1 experience, or with your family, where they have a great holiday while you're training. Design the camp you want and it will be yours. Including;

  • Video Analysis of All Sports
  • Finding Your Best Racing Strategy
  • Distances and Sessions Designed Only for You
  • A fat bike may be the best way to get around Sal.

    You can go everywhere - over sand and across the volcanic terrain.

    Run analysis is a key element at the beginning of the week.

    Slow motion video is always helpful to see exactly how you're running.

    Swimming is a pleasure in the blue waters of Santa Maria.

    The water is between 20C and 24C all year round - wet suits are optional.
