YOUR TRAINING CAMP

Early season development – want to improve your technique across all three sports – for only £575? You get 7 days fully coached half board accommodation in our sports hotel in Mallorca.  February is the perfect time to start fining tuning your technique – we work specifically on swim technique and improvement, strength and power development, cycling skills and endurance, running form and injury prevention.  Classroom activities include how to plan your training for the upcoming season, how to incorporate strength work and swim and run mechanics.

Suitable for all levels and distances from sprint to Ironman.

This 7 night camp is based from our 4* sports hotel in Playa De Muro, Mallorca, with half board meal plan. The hotel offers an onsite 25 metre heated outdoor pool, fully equipped gym, secure bike garage and spa with hot and cold therapies. 

Swim: The week includes a one to one swim video analysis with individual coach feedback so that you can work on your technique during the coached pool and open water swim sessions. 

Bike: All athletes are assessed on Day 1 to establish riding strengths and skills and grouped accordingly. Rides are varied by terrain and distance, rolling flats and mountain rides from 50k to 100k. We operate a no-drop policy so no athlete gets left behind. 

Run: Brick runs, drills and technique work, and tempo runs are guided by our coaches. These sessions can be either road or off road and are suitable for all athletes. 

Strength and Core: Most days finish with a strength or core session to complete your training day. These sessions are designed to complement the training effect for the day.

Coaching: Challenge Tri Camp provide a high coach to athlete training ratio with the opportunity for one to one sessions to work on your individual requirements.

Camp Schedule: Athletes can expect approximately 27 plus hours of coached activities throughout the week with a specific schedule that builds in intensity and also allows for a half day rest period to avoid over training.

THE TRAINING SCHEDULE

The main sessions start on the Sunday morning with a swim followed by a ride and then a brick run. You can expect approximately 27 plus hours coached activities throughout the week. We swim, bike and run most days, with Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon off for recovery. The swims are either in the 25m outdoor heated lane pool on site or sea swims 100m from the hotel. It is mandatory for athletes to swim in a wetsuit during the sea swims for health and safety insurance purposes. There will be approx 6-7 swims throughout the week. The swim on the first Sunday morning includes a video session which is then used for your swim assessment with a coach on a 1:2:1 basis later that day. Most runs are brick runs, off the bike, with some longer road and trail runs/walks.

The first ride (approx 60-65km) is an assessment ride where we ask athletes to self seed themselves in the ride groups and the coaches then assess to make sure each athlete is in the right group for the week. The rides build in distance through the week and range from flat and rolling, to mountain rides with quite a bit of descending and climbing. Depending on each ride groups abilities determines the distances that are achieved by the end of the week. We operate a no-drop policy so no athlete gets left behind to find their own way back to the hotel, there is always a coach on hand to support any back markers.The last day of coached activities is Friday and the sessions normally finish during the mid afternoon. On Saturday morning there is an uncoached swim session.
