The Scientific Triathlon training camp returns to Mallorca from the 13th to the 20th of April 2024.
Our now traditional triathlon training camp is back 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 triathlete 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.
This year we hold the training camp a few weeks later than before, which will give us some different training opportunities, including the possibility for open water swimming.
What: The only Scientific Triathlon training camp in 2024. 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 (Frank has worked with athletes like Craig Alexander, so he really is a world class coach).
When: 13 April to 20 April 2024. We will have a welcome meeting on the evening of the 13th, but there is no training on that day. You should save time to build your bike on the 13th so that you are ready to ride on the morning of the 24th. The 20th is the check-out day, so there is no training that day. Official training days of the camp are the 24th to the 19th of April (Sunday to Friday).

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!
Can't wait to do it again!
It was simply fantastic. The set up with coaches and guides, the people of both those teams, the resort, the food, the island, even the weather! A memorable week and I can't wait to do it again already!
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.
Everybody was motivated and had a lot of fun
The training was really nice - especially enjoyed the bike run bike-run-bike-run on Friday. It was great to train in groups, everybody was motivated and had a lot of fun. I got to talk to the coaches a lot, and could not imagine better location and facilities.
Such a great camp and an amazing experience!
The training was really nice. I loved all the routes we did and I also enjoyed getting to know all the coaches in person. I really enjoyed everything at the resort, and everyone at the camp was great. It was great eating breakfast in the same general area and having tables reserved in the evenings so that we could all sit together and socialize. I bet this camp will become quite popular!
Great fitness boost and great training destination
A great motivator and boost to my fitness, working with some incredible coaches and athletes. Mallorca is a great destination for training! The training allowed me to maximise my gains from the camp without overdoing it, and the coaches gave good feedback on the swim. The food was of high quality and there were plenty of people of a similar fitness level to me.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I loved the location, the people, the coaches, and the training. I also loved that we had group meals together for breakfast and dinner. Having the groups and the flexibility to move around every day was fantastic. It gave us all confidence that no matter how we felt that day, we had options and could have a great workout. The coaches were so approachable and willing to chat with us at all of the meals, on the rides, runs, etc. Everyone made such an effort to see how we were doing on both a training and personal level throughout the camp.
A wonderful week, can't wait to be back!
I really, really, really LOVED this camp. It was such a wonderful week and I can't wait to be back in the future. I got so much training in, saw some beautiful landscapes, and got to meet some wonderful people. It was fantastic. The resort was also excellent - especially the spa.
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.
Will return to future camps!
Incredible island, communicative, nice and professional coaches and guides, fantastic group of people!
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.
Thanks for a great week of training!
This is my second time at the Scientific Triathlon Mallorca camp. A fantastic place for a spring training camp, Mallorca is one of the best places for cycling that I know. Perfect weather, scenic challenging rides and hotel with great training facilities. Again the camp was great; good swim-bike-run program, guided groups by ability and all around great group of people to train and socialize with.
First class training and coaching
Training and coaching was first class. The coaches were very happy to help all the athletes on the camp and they provided very welcome advice. It was refreshing to have coaches that understood individual needs and made us aware that there is no standard template we should all follow. Train the right way for you, track performance improvements and learn what works for you through trying different training approaches, and balancing your own volume and intensity.
Thanks, loved the experience!
The camp was well organized, the rides were great, and so were the coaches, guides, and other athletes. Location and hotel were also great, staff friendly and helpful.
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.
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!
