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.

Testimonials

Loved it!


Peter Gasser 36, Switzerland

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.

Supportive and motivating


Johan Fayet 24, France

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.

Left the camp more confident


Anna West 30, Germany

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!!!


Stefano Adriolo 31, Italy

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.

Very happy with the week


Anna-Kaisa Pietilainen 41, United Kingdom

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!


Sindre Sørensen 48, Norway

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.

Good organization, nice location, and splendid views


Arthur Blanc 32, France

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.

I'll be coming back for many years!


Max Quirk 22, Australia

Amazing camp! Trained hard and met many new friends. An experience I'll be coming back to for many years!

Wonderful week, great training and very well organised


Fiona Day 50, United Kingdom

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.

Surpassed my expectations at every level


Camilo Buitrago-Hernández 44, Colombia

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.

Good coaches, program and athletes


Justine Cordier Svendsen 44, Norway

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.
