I went to swim camp this year and have booked again for next year. Hotel, food, bike garage, pool and rooms all high standard. I like to train a lot and the days were full. 2 coached swims and a bike ride most days plus a few runs and some stretching and core in the mix as well., the good thing is, if you want more free time, you can miss sessions without judgement. The quality of coaching was excellent.As a mediocre swimmer I went to camp with two goals, a step change in my swim times and to overcome my fear of the sea. Both goals achieved. On the last sea swim I did a full 70.3 distance swim and my pool 400m time improved by 21 seconds in the week and a further 14 seconds within a month of getting home and putting all I had learned into practice. My stroke was unrecognisable from the video at the start of the camp. I sat with the coach and made sure I wrote down all the coaching points for my particular stroke issues...he was very patient! But it meant I went home with an armoury of drills to practice. I also came away much more confident at group riding and with some fabulous new friends to follow on Strava Highly recommended whether you are looking for a holiday with the added bonus of coached sessions, or as in my case some serious training and coaching in the sunshine or somewhere in between...All are catered for. I loved it. A fabulous fun break doing all the things I love doing with a great set of people

I did the Middle distance camp in April. I am new to triathlons and being my first camp I was initially a bit nervous to go on my own and about the level required but it was all dispelled in the first 24hrs! The camp is organised to cover different abilities and the coaches and fellow athletes were awesome. I came away with great advice and new friends. I would highly recommend the camps and already planning on booking again next year!

I’ve been going to Challenge Tri Camp for several years now, sometimes alone, sometimes with friends or my partner; no matter what, I’ve always had a fantastic experience. Tri Camp coaches have a unique ability to make everyone feel like they are a champion. I keep coming back to Tri Camp because other ones I’ve tried are only geared to a certain age group and a certain level. At Tri Camp, you train with your level, no one is too slow, or too fast, and at meals you all share the laughs, trials and tribulations of training. The end of camp competition is fantastic: each triathlete EACH ONE is given a personalised triathlon - the distances are matched to you and your level. That’s how well the coaches get to know you. Look out for Challenge Tri Camp gear at races and don’t hesitate to talk to the triathlete, I’m sure they’ll be more than happy to talk about Tri Camp. That’s just how great it is.

I’ve done 2 camps. Both were excellent with superb coaches and a great hotel. Groups cover a real wide range of abilities and everyone is catered for. I’ve travelled alone on both occasions and have met people who will be lifelong friends. We’ve already met up back home to train, Race and socialise and are looking forward to the reunion of the full team at the relays in August �

I did the early camp in Feb this year. A great bunch of like-minded people from beginner to elite. No need to worry about ability level; the coaches will make sure you're in the right group. Plenty of mixed-ability sessions as well. Brent and Nick head up a friendly, knowledgeable and experienced team and the coaches are always happy to provide advice and know how to help you hit your targets.

Second year running at Tricamp! Didn't think I could top such a fantastic week last year but this year at a different venue was even better! All coaching was first class and the triathlon event at the end of the week was a real highlight. The coaches were all so professional and the athletes attending the week, though of different abilities, were all catered for! Will definitely be booking another week next year!

I first started my journey with Nick and the team in 2011/12 during a pre Mallorca 70.3 training camp, their support, knowledge and guidance has been such a valuable source of learning for me as an athlete. Nick is now my coach and I have no hesitation in recommending the Challenge Tri Camp Team.

After attending the improvers camp at Mallorca, I can highly recommend a Challenge Tri training camp. The jam-packed week was well structured which gave great training to everyone in the group. The friendly coaches were helpful and encouraging making sure everyone had tough but enjoyable sessions. Cycling on the island was amazing, the smooth roads through the scenic countryside and up the fantastic climbs made the kilometres fly by. This was my first training camp experience and it surpassed all of my expectations. I look forward to going back!

Exceeded all my expectations! Never a dull day. Wonderful, knowledgeable coaches who were never too busy to assist, help or advise...and what a great bunch of fellow athletes, who arrived as strangers but left as firm friends.

I had a brilliant week at Challenge Tri Camp! This was my first sports camp and I had been nervous that I would be surrounded by semi professional athletes but the group was a real mix, and the team of coaches catered brilliantly for every level of ability so no one was left feeling like they were holding anyone back or that they wouldn't get a good enough work out. If you are one of the serious triathletes, you will have a brilliant week of training; the opportunity to train all day every day with a professional team of coaches along side you. The coaches offer top class training and advice in all three disciplines, I ended the week feeling more confident in my own ability than ever before. The camp gave me the I train a lot in my day to day life and absolutely loved having the opportunity to get involved with every activity on offer during the camp, but it was always fine for people to sit out of activities if they needed a rest day or a couple of hours to themself. I have since signed up to a middle distance triathlon, bought a new bike and a new wetsuit....the camp has well and truly given me the triathlon bug!

First class bunch of coaches and 'competitors' last week on Challenge Tri Camp in Mallorca. Just the kick start I needed before my next 3 triathlons in FL in the coming weeks. Big thanks to Helen,Brent,Nick and Simon who were all faultless. Hotel, facilities and food second to none for a Tri-training week. Anyone thinking of giving it a go, don't hesitate. Sign up, it's all good.

Brilliant week of training for husband and me. The hotel and facilities are really nice and the food lovely. Nick, Brent, Helen, Simon and Bernarde are excellent coaches, who really worked hard to ensure that every one had the best week possible. The weather was not great on a couple of days, but they managed to adjust the schedule and ensure that everyone still had a great time. I now have a lot more confidence in bike handling and my husband even joined in the swim sessions, despite having no previous swim experience and initially not wanting to even participate in the swims. We would both highly recommend Challenge Tri Camp and we hope to be able to return again soon.

This was my first triathlon camp and what an incredible week it was. The coaches are brilliant and prepare a carefully balanced act of some tough training and a lot of fun (I was travelling by myself and immediately felt part of the group). Before I arrived the longest I had cycled was 40km but found myself doing three times this distance, inspired and motivated by the coaches, group and incredible views. Thank you for a fantastic week. I will be back!

6/5 week! I really enjoyed the good spirit and training tips. Training was enough challenging and I was super motivated to train in advanced company. Rides were organized safely for 1st time group riders too. Super coaches! Hotel Viva was perfect base for triathlon-training!

Absolutely brilliant week with Challenge Tri Camp! They looked after everyone with great care, no matter what your fitness level or ability. All the coaches encouraged and supported you and made sure you got to the top of all the hills and back down again. Great set-up at the hotel too. I had thought this was probably a one-off holiday but I will definitely be going back. It’s also given me a kick start to get back to cycling. Cracking week in a beautiful part of the world with lovely people - couldn’t recommend it highly enough!
