Scientific Triathlon Spring Training Camp in Mallorca, Spain
25 March to 1 April 2023
This will be our second year of running a training camp in Mallorca, a true cycling paradise with fantastic roads, beautiful mountains, picturesque countryside and surrounded by the glorious Mediterranean. You will get to experience life as a full-time athlete for a week, which in addition to being a fun and exciting experience will give you a great boost of fitness on the road towards any races and season goals you have planned. You will be surrounded by likeminded people all sharing a love for endurance sports and the outdoors, and you will have a great opportunity to chat with and learn from a great team of experienced coaches.
What: Our main Scientific Triathlon training camp. 7 nights at a great hotel with half board included, and 6 days of fantastic training in the training paradise that is northern Mallorca. Hosted by the Scientific Triathlon coaching team in collaboration with Next Level Camp (Frank and Kaisa Jakobsen) who provide local expertise and years of training camp experience, plus superb coaching knowledge.
When: 25 March to 1 April 2023. We will have a welcome meeting on the evening of the 25th, but there is no training on that day.

-Run 10 km (6.2 miles) non-stop
-Bike 100 km (62 miles) non-stop
-Bike in mountainous terrain and be comfortable with climbing and descending
Preparatory training program: Participants will get a free two-month training program that they can use at home leading up to the camp that will make sure you have the fitness necessary for the camp. This is a ready-made program aimed for athletes who want to ensure they have at least the minimum fitness required. It is not relevant for athletes who know they will have no issues keeping up with the training during the camp.

Loved the camp and the whole experience in general! I got an intense training week, great information from the workshops, and always found the right ride or run group for my level. It was great to meet my coach and all the other coaches, as well as fellow triathletes of all levels from among the participants.
Left the camp more confident
Overall, I enjoyed the sessions and seminars and have left the camp more confident and ready to tackle full distance!
I had so much fun!!!
The amount of training experience available was incredible. So many intriguing and fun sessions. Plus, I really enjoyed the detailed workshops and the QA session. On top of this, it was truly amazing to have all coaches readily available to answer questions and give feedback. The facilities were great and the hotel landscape is so relaxing. And all participants were so energetic and full of desire to share thoughts and personal experiences.
I'll be coming back for many years!
Amazing camp! Trained hard and met many new friends. An experience I'll be coming back to for many years!
Surpassed my expectations at every level
My use case (no cycling) was very particular and Scientific Triathlon accommodated things to fit it, which I totally appreciate. Because of this, I had the opportunity of having individual running and swimming sessions with James (and one swim with Lachie), whose feedback on my technique was priceless. The Pollentia Resort was a convenient bubble where all basic needs were covered and catered for the very specific needs of athletes. Buffets at the restaurants were glorious. Overall, the camp surpassed my expectations at every level.
Very happy with the week
I'm very happy with the week, the training volume and the quality that I got in. Also learned a few new things from the workshops and fellow triathletes, and got to meet a bunch of nice people and some serious athletes as well. Meeting such a diverse group of people sharing a passion for triathlon was actually one of the great positives of this camp.
Thanks for a great week of training!
Met my expectations of good training and meeting new people that enjoy training. The workouts were great with a good mix and good guides and coaches. I got a boost in both fitness and motivation for the coming season. The only downside is that I did not get to work on my tan lines as I had expected, but that is out of your control.
Supportive and motivating
It was very well organized from the beginning to the end of the camp. The possibility to choose a ride according to our fitness and/or fatigue level was welcome. Coaches were supportive and motivating. The atmosphere was friendly and happy thanks to the overall motivation and the wonderful environment in which we were living. The hotel was comfortable, well located for triathletes, and the food was absolutely great.
Good organization, nice location, and splendid views
Good organization, nice location with good food and facilities. Great climbs with splendid views, really appreciated that. The swim video analysis was a perfect addition as it always shows where to improve.
Good coaches, program and athletes
The flexibility with respect to group level and individual ability was good, and so were the coaches, program and other athletes. The facilities were good, well located and with nice food.
Wonderful week, great training and very well organised
The group rides and runs were well organised with coaches in each group. The workshops were excellent and the swim sessions were also very useful. There were plenty of rides with fantastic scenery. The hotel was absolutely ideal, in particular that we could store bikes in our room, and also the food which was the best and most suitable for me of any hotel I have been to. The 2 pools and the gym were also great.
